Some are regrettably turning to violence because they think there is no other way to challenge the system.

How was your Saturday?
We spent the morning at Wal-Mart getting some school supplies for our son who is starting kindergarten this week. After we got home, I heard about the mass shooting at the Wal-Mart in El Paso and the manifesto that was allegedly posted on 8chan by a Brenton Tarrant enthusiast:
The manifesto is … well, interesting.
It talks about Universal Basic Income and Andrew Yang’s pending robot apocalypse. It sounds almost like whoever wrote this manifesto read Yang’s book and concluded that he wanted to be one of the legions of dispossessed White guys with a gun that Yang was so worried about.
We were initially told that the manifesto was just a troll. I’m seeing reports now though that the manifesto is probably real. It also indicts the Republican Party for allowing the border to collapse. It describes the GOP as being “complacent or involved in one of the biggest betrayals of the American public in our history” because it has done nothing to stop the invasion of Texas which will become a blue state.
Something like 1.25 million illegal aliens are expected to cross the border this year under the Blompf presidency. The vast majority of them will be released in the interior. Nothing is being done to stop it either. It isn’t really surprising that someone in Texas would be so angry about it and so frustrated by the utter worthlessness of conservatism that they would snap.
For all the spergs out there thinking about writing their manifesto and shooting a bunch of random people in Wal-Mart, we were in the Wal-Mart too this morning. This isn’t helping matters. It makes much more sense to dump the GOP for their treason in the next election.
