Today I was asked whether the president is a white supremacist. I said yes.— Elizabeth Warren (@ewarren) August 8, 2019
Pete Buttigieg, asked if he thinks Trump is a white supremacist: “Yes, I do. At best, he’s emboldening people with that intention.” https://t.co/JditDfmfIx— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) August 9, 2019

So, it turns out the El Paso shooting was what everyone assumed it was, but now that has been confirmed by the police. It still hasn’t been confirmed that Crusius posted the manifesto to 8chan.
“The suspect in the El Paso shooting stepped out of a vehicle with his hands up and declared “I’m the shooter” when he was arrested minutes after the massacre at a Walmart store that killed 22 people, the police said in an affidavit filed Friday.
The suspect, Patrick W. Crusius, 21, also divulged to the police that his target was “Mexicans,” according to the document, written by Detective Adrian Garcia of the El Paso Police Department.
While responding to reports of an active shooter on Saturday morning, the document said, rangers with the Texas Department of Public Safety saw a vehicle stop at an intersection near the Walmart. It said a man exited the vehicle and admitted opening fire on customers and employees in the store …”
I will say this about Brenton Tarrant’s fan club.
The violent accelerationist strategy appears to be working. The goal of these mass shootings is to attack soft targets to ratchet up the racial and cultural polarization and negative energy to bring us closer to a violent civil war. This will provoke an overreaction from the state which will affect everyone who doesn’t embrace violent accelerationism. It will have the effect of further radicalizing both conservative normies and more moderate White Nationalists on the Right as well as progressives on the Left.
Blompf is being labeled a “white supremacist” now by the Democratic candidates. Congress is poised to pass some form of gun control possibly even an assault weapons ban which was inconceivable a month ago. The Democrats are moving even further off the deep end on immigration. We’re definitely closer to a civil war now thanks to a handful of nihilistic arsonists who want to burn it all down. They couldn’t have done it though without counting on all the sociopathic politicians.
As the quarterback, Patrick Crusius launched the football and the Democrats have intercepted it and are scrambling to score political points. This was calculated. He knew exactly how this would play out. If he is following the news, I figure he is quite satisfied with himself.
Note: I don’t like war in general.
I’m even less enthused about the thought of a violent civil war here.
