How do you know the guy was a "leftist antifa supporter"? No one is reporting that. They ARE saying he got a Bad Conduct Discharge from.the Air Force for assaulting his wife and child, and served 12 months confinement for it as well. It's unclear whether it was legal for him to own the firearms he had. But way too early to claim to know his political leanings.


No proof required. When a terrorist isnít a radical Muslim, the alt-right needs someone to blame to fit their narrative. Any group that is slightly left from center will due, because as you know, anyone who isnít a big fan of Trump wants to abolish 2A and forcibly take away all weapons from citizens.

If you donít like the real facts, why not just make some up? So many who want to be ďspoon fedĒ anything from the MSM move on to highly factual sources such as Breitbart and Alex Jones. Thereís a spoon for every narrative.

I'm sure we can thank the pro-gun groups for the deaths of those 26 people since the laws made it easy for him to purchase the gun without being detected on a background check.

His dishonorable discharge should have produced a red flag on the background check. But I'm sure that's a feature not a bug of pro-gun rights.

He had the gun illegally. He was denied purchase in Texas. Gun laws only prevent law abiding people from owning. Criminals always find a work around. Thank goodness for the armed plumber that took the guy out.

When I was in high school, we fostered almost 20 kids over 3 years. We were short-term, immediately receiving kids after they left their homes, so some very traumatized people coming in. All but one showed up with their clothes and things (if they had any) in garbage bags.

One kid had a sky-blue suitcase he could barely drag; he was about 5. It stands out in my mind because he WAS the only one with luggage.

It never occurred to me before how that small thing would have given them some dignity, and some grounding. I'm impressed about that charity existing.

Also recalling shopping at Salvation Army on the Big Island of Hawaii. The thing they had the most of? Thrown away suitcases. Huge pile of them. $5 each, even if they'd cost hundreds originally. Everything else was kind of expensive compared to Mainland prices, but almost free luggage. Lol...

Anyway, fostering is heartbreaking. Kids came in abused, confused, a couple almost feral. We hung in there through liars, thieves, and lots of squabbles, but what broke my parents' hearts was a kid named Jeff, who they grew so fond of they tried to adopt him. The state refused permission. They had to withdraw because they just couldn't take giving him up, didn't want to get attached again.

It had to be a weird situation for the kids, too. We had a huge house, everything people could need. The contrast to what they'd left had to be disorienting, maybe even embittering. I don't know if we did any good, but at least they were in a home, not a ward or institution, while waiting for permanent placement.

Just thinking out loud. Sorry for the sidebar - we now return you to your regularly scheduled sparring.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

I agree
What a great group
Why Maxpen uses this group as a reason for the shooting is really bizarre
Been checking out the Together we rise website
What great people
What a great cause

There is a TOGETHER WE RISE group on Facebook with about 5,000 followers. Looking at the posts, it doesn't meet the definition of a "leftist ANTIFA" group by any means. It's just standard liberal posts and memes.

Here is the group description, clearly written by a 12 year old. (The "meat" misspelling makes me cringe.)

Quote:

TOGETHER WE RISE ! This is a group that believes ALL should rise, not just 1%. I do not care what your race, color, religion, nationality , income etc is, ONLY that you NOT be a right wing extremist. People that SUPPORT TR**P do not meat the above standards of decency and civility. I know what old style Republicans were and the ones in congress today will not like it here. This group is great, join if you agree.
You WILL be welcomed warmly, make new friends . We have reached a point where there is NO turning back.

Looks like they do wonderful work
Just donated 25 bucks
Maybe Maxpen can shed light on why he blames this group for the killings in TX
Really bizarre
Cmon Max, give us a clue
