Etrange réveil ce matin aux #EtatsUnis, jamais peut-être depuis aussi longtemps 1 société n'est apparue aussi divisée, en proie à des tensions violentes que les institutions ne parviennent plus à tempérer et exacerbent parfois...#thread #Trump
2) Après la tuerie de masse du journal @capitalgazette, les médias nationaux repassent en boucle cette scène où le président US #Trump refuse de s'exprimer pour réconforter victimes, familles, concitoyens...le président n'est plus le "consolateur en chef"
3)...cette nouvelle tuerie du Maryland, où 1 déséquilibré a voulu régler 1 vendetta personnelle avec 1 journal, voit aussi les #EtatsUnis découvrir qu'1 polémiste"nationaliste-identitaire"ayant son rond de serviette chez Fox et Breitbart, peut appeler au meurtre de #journalistes

Not sure how to be articulate when crying but: Milo Yiannopolous saying his comment two days before the murders (calling for vigilante squads to gun down journalists) was a joke and a troll, is exactly why I have always found “troll” to be DANGEROUS terminology. #CapitalGazette
“Troll” aligns endlessly nasty and verbally violent behaviour with an avatar, a non-real thing, erasing the very abusive PERSON who exists with the same viewpoint and hatred away from their computer.

“Troll” minimises the impact of these people.
Make no mistake, aligning journalists as the enemy and calling for their eradication—as Trump and his govt have done throughout—is paint-by-numbers fascism. Milo is a fascist. Not a troll. No breaking news there.

.@selenecapgaz to @andersoncooper: “thanks for your prayers, but I couldn't give a fuck about them if there's nothing else." #capitalgazette
more @selenecapgaz: ”what happened here was very calculated ... I think this person was going after editors. that’s what happened here, editors died."
now @PhilDavis_CG speaks: “if we’re in a position in society where all we can offer each other is prayer, where are we?"

Joining @OutFrontCNN , @CNNTonight and @cnni for what we know and what we don't. Few points: mutilation of fingerprints is behavior of deliberate attacker, premeditation, assassins and spies type stuff. Likely expected to be killed. 1/

Follow on explosive attack was directed at first responders. Since didnt detonate, will be treasure of info including purchased materials that can lead to surveillance cameras. 2/
Motive still unknown but police would want to shut down any political motive theory and that they haven't done so simply means it's an open question. That's not good b/c by now there were so many witnesses who would have known who he was. So likely he was stranger. 3/

The Annapolis shooter hasn't been identified.
This could just be a coincidence.
Between Trump calling the press the "enemy of the state" and this...
Milo Yiannopoulos wants vigilantes to start killing journalists, and he's not being "ironic"…
According to the press conference the Annapolis PD/Mayor just gave:

5 dead, several gravely injured.
Suspect in custody is a white male, late 20's, early 30's.

Keep it classy, GOP.
Annapolis shooting brings out the best in these cretins.

#BREAKING: A shooting has occurred at the Capital Gazette in Anne Arundel County, according to reports from Gazette staff. Phil Davis, a Gazette reporter, said that multiple people had been shot. Details are still coming in at this time.…
Update from a witness: “Gunman shot through the glass door to the office and opened fire on multiple employees. Can’t say much more and don’t want to declare anyone dead, but it’s bad."
Update from a witness: "There is nothing more terrifying than hearing multiple people get shot while you’re under your desk and then hear the gunman reload.”
