Sorry to say there is more on this latest shooting. Truth is I was going to let this go until I read a couple of reports that was just irksome on so many levels….
I realize the the GOP does enjoy blaming Obama for everything that goes wrong…..well this latest shooting is no different…..Ted Cruz when interviewed mentioned the massacre in Texas as an example…..
Cruz also asserted that President Barack Obama shared the blame for a mass shooting that killed 26 at a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas.
“Had the Obama administration simply followed federal law and enforced the law, existing gun laws made it illegal for the Sutherland Springs shooter to buy a gun,” he opined. “But the Obama administration failed to report his criminal conviction so he wasn’t in the background check system.”
And he was worried that the Dems would politicize this latest attack….and what would anyone call what Cruz did?
But the main reason I have this late post was a report on the shooter of this latest massacre…..
The Republic of Florida, a white nationalist militia, confirmed Thursday that the man charged in Wednesday’s school shooting in Parkland, Florida, was involved in some of its activities.
Jordan Jereb, the group’s leader, told The Associated Press that shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz had participated in the group’s paramilitary drills in Tallahassee.
The ROF, which says it seeks to establish a “white ethnostate” in Florida, did not order Cruz to carry out the shooting, Jereb told the ADL. However, attacks carried out by groups like the Republic of Florida are on the rise: Murders by white supremacists more than doubled in 2017 compared to the year before, according to an ADL report released last week.
This is just a “he said/they said” thing about the shooter…..but should make right wing bloggers go into shock and lash out with their usual string of insults……
“I saw him wear a Trump hat,” said Sebastian Gonzalez, a 19-year-old who graduated from the high school in 2017. “At our school you were sort of with Trump or really against Trump.” Ocean Parodie, a 17-year-old junior said that he also saw Cruz wearing the hat. “He always wore like really patriotic shirts that seemed really extreme, like hating on the Islamic religion. For example, he would say things such as like, he would degrade Islamic people as terrorists and bombers. I’ve seen him wear a Trump hat,” Parodie said.
Cruz wore the hat in a photo on an Instagram account the company said belonged to him. Over his face he wore a red, white, and blue bandana. On that account and another one, Cruz posted photos of guns, knives, anti-Muslim slurs, and a picture of a toad he killed.
I am sure this had nothing to do with the Trumpster Movement whatsoever…..
Quick update…Pres. Trump basically blames the community for this shooting saying they should have reported this young man….and in reality they did report this dude and it still happened…..clueless in DC……
