Just watched the #CNNTownhall with 2024 Presidential candidate and former President @realDonaldTrump , as well as the post-townhall panel discussion.

One thing is clear: #America is a broken country. It's split right down the middle.

Racial divisions and #massshootings are peaking, the economy is cratering, #poverty and #homelessness are rising.

And meanwhile, the US government is involved in, or threatening to get involved in, wars from #Ukraine to #Taiwan to #Syria to #Iran to #NorthKorea.

When they should be working on healing the divisions in their own nation. White vs non-White, Rural vs Urban, Rich vs Poor, drug addiction, broken homes - all these are tearing America apart.

@JohnDunlea @appfeed67 @RaymondZino @EdKrassen So what

US has the most legal guns but is only halfway down the gun-murder league table

Serbia & Israel are in the top few countries with the most legal gun ownership per person but are 3/4 way down

Switzerland 2nd most (possibly most per household) & was falling off bottom!🤦‍♂️ ImageImageImageImage
@JohnDunlea @appfeed67 @RaymondZino @EdKrassen So why does US have so many mass shootings such as in schools

When other high gun legal ownership countries don't have mass shootings or even high gun murders


What are "liberals" trying to distract & deflect from with gun control😱 ImageImageImageImage
@JohnDunlea @appfeed67 @RaymondZino @EdKrassen If want to watch a #Triggernometry interview that could well explain why the USA leads the world with #MassShootings

Especially #MassSchoolShootings

Watch this:

⚠️🚨#TriggerWarning: It's because the USA leads the World with "#Liberalism" & #Feminism!

@James85fletcher @MrAhmednurAli You clearly don't even know what critical thinking is never mind ever thought for yourself

And are just Trolling

Why are statistics on gun control irrelevant in a discussion on gun control

And why are they deceptive

Because you don't agree with them!🤦‍♂️…
@James85fletcher @MrAhmednurAli And I've repeatedly said why "something" is ‘a good thing’

And "something" else is a bad thing

So more than maybe gun control isn’t a good thing

It's bad in the US because it's unconstitutional

It's bad because it DOESN'T reduce gun murders or crime😱…
@James85fletcher @MrAhmednurAli Gun control is bad because it actually overall in general (yes surprise surprise with exceptions because this is the real word with variations & no two countries or cultures are the same ) seems to INCREASE gun murders gun crime ALL crime!

But MOST....…

THREAD: Trump is continuing to spew rhetoric that could easily incite more bloodshed… #MassShootings #StochasticTerrorism
2/ I know many are sick of this and just want to tune him out, but many millions of Americans still back Trump—including partisan extremists who think political violence is justified. What happens when “armed citizens” patrol polling places on November 8?…
3/ Trump’s efforts to dehumanize and breed contempt for his purported enemies increase the risk for political violence, research shows. And he has spread these tactics. Republican leaders aren't rejecting his dangerous incitement—they're now copying him…

#Taft #Massshooting #Chattanooga #Uvalde - @GovStitt @tedcruz @GovAbbott @BrianKempGA @USSupremeCourt @GOP @NRA, Wayne Lapierre, Bobo, MTG, why not get rid of your bodyguards, fences, etc., and replace with thoughts and prayers? Oh wait, you're afraid of gun nuts too?
@GovStitt @tedcruz @GovAbbott @BrianKempGA @USSupremeCourt @GOP @NRA 2/ @TheGoodLiars thanks Wayne LaPierre at the NRA Convention for all his thoughts and prayers. And how about we start naming #MassShootings for Republican leaders like we name hurricanes?
@GovStitt @tedcruz @GovAbbott @BrianKempGA @USSupremeCourt @GOP @NRA @TheGoodLiars 3/ #TexasMassacre #ProLifeMyAss - Cowards like Ted Cruz, Wayne LaPierre, @GLOCKInc are the problem. #Uvalde Massacre has 19 dead children and 2 dead adults. For gun nuts who fear criminals with guns, why not let them buy #Kevlar vests like they want the rest of us to have?

#Chattanooga #Massshooting #2A #2ndAmendment - Another one? Flood the market with guns and idiots promoting how everyone should carry them around, #massshootings will happen. Shame on the NRA, Ted Cruz, etc. They can all go to Hell.…
2/ #2ndAmendment #2A #AR15 The right to carry AR-15 high-capacity semi-automatics was never "original intent". The Constitution was never amended to permit them from being carried around concealed or in the open or in any other way. Activist judges slipped them through. So there. ImageImageImageImage
3/ #2A US Constitution #FederalistSociety "original intent" folks: I’m okay if you own arms if you're serving in a well-regulated militia with 18th Century rifles, muskets and pistols. Meanwhile, another #massshooting in #Chattanooga with 6+ wounded.…

Where do #SecondAmendment supporters stand on police using rubber bullets, tear gas and pepper spray on protesters? I have covered #NRA events and #2ndAmendment protests here in #Texas where protesters open carried and staged a mock mass shooting.…

1/ The #HebronMassacre happened 90 years ago on Shabbat Ekev. This was no "ordinary" massacre, like maybe 10 minutes of #MassShootings leaving 67 dead. Each one was horribly tortured in unimaginable ways.
In this thread, I bring the GRAPHIC DETAILS, because the world should know.
2/ All the details were published at the time in the following newspapers: Haaretz Sep. 1st ; Doar Hayom Sep. 2nd +Sep. 6th, 1929 and so on on other papers like Davar.
More details were published later on in September when the victims were taken out of their graves to check them.
3/ Nobody escaped the #Arab terrorists cruelty. They used knives, daggers, clubs, swords. Starting with the babies, they cut their heads, gave them to their mothers until they were murdered too.
The 9 months old Abushdid baby was among them.

What are they celebrating with radiant smiles, thumbs up and selfies? 34 dead in 2 states in a week--from mass shootings. 22 in El Paso. 9 in Dayton. 3 in Gilroy. In 2019, 62 killed in mass shootings. Hundreds wounded. As the Trumps beam and pose, 680 arrested in Mississippi...
...laborers at the Kochs chicken processing factories. Children are left in schools and in the streets without parents. Neighbors take them to gyms to await their fate while their parents are taking away, handcuffed. The Republicans are speaking of "Hispanic Invasion."
Is this the time to smile wide? But don't blame it all on the sociopaths in power. Anyone smiling wide in these photos from the official White House Flicker account (no copyright, use as you wish)…

10 years ago #DHS sent American law enforcement agencies an intelligence briefing warning of a rising threat of #domestic #RightWing #extremism, including #WhiteSupremacist #terrorism.
#economicrecession & election of America’s 1st #blackpresident fertile ground #radicalization
Military #veterans returning from #Iraq & #Afghanistan, would be attractive #targets for #recruitment, #Republican #politicians & #conservativepundits reacted with outrage & demanded a retraction. The small team of domestic terrorism analysts who had produced report was disbanded
and analysts were reassigned to study #Muslim #extremism, according to Daryl Johnson, the career federal intelligence analyst who had led the team, By the next year, Johnson had been forced out of the #DHS altogether..

After the three #MassShootings we saw last week, we're talking to David Zuckerman, a domestic terrorism expert. Here's why he thinks shutting down platforms like 8Chan, which 3 mass shooters have used to spread/share #WhiteSupremacist ideologies WILL NOT prevent violence
@FOX40 Many of the young men behind mass shootings used 8Chan to share manifestos and post hate-filled messages hours before they carried out their attacks. The perpetrators in #PowayShooting #NewZealandTerroristAttack and the #ElPasoShooting all had that in common. @FOX40 Image
@FOX40 "Do your part and spread this brothers!...I'm probably going to die today. Keep up the good fight."

Part of the manifesto the #ElPasoTerroristAttack shooter posted to 8Chan a little while before he carried out the attack. Today the site was banned by its online host. @FOX40 Image

Still seeing a lot of folks referring to the recent #massshootings as terrorist attacks. I know it's tempting to turn the messaging of the state back on itself, but our Muslim comrades have instructed us again and again not to do this #ElPasoShooting #WhiteNationalism
"Terrorist" is an inherently racist, and specifically anti-Arab and anti-Muslim, construct invented for the targeting and criminalization of specific communities. #ElPasoShooting #WhiteNationalism
Trying to label #WhiteNationalism as a form of terrorism may feel like poetic justice, but it does more to reinforce that category than to undo it, which is what our goal needs to be #ElPasoShooting

Antifa isn't murdering people. MS-13 isn't gunning down hundreds.

The Trump regime set the stage for these #massshootings.

They have vilified their critics while ending programs that track dangerous, fringe groups.

These ARE #TrumpsTerrorists.
First Trump shut down programs to counter violent extremism.

The administration has hobbled the infrastructure designed to prevent atrocities like Pittsburgh and Christchurch.…
When Fighting Domestic Terrorism, You Get What You Pay For

The Trump administration has gutted the budget for fighting far-right extremists, making it harder to stop attacks like the Pittsburgh massacre.…

American culture’s gun worship is a function of white identity politics.

In a sane world, we‘d all be able to rally around common sense gun law reforms in the wake of daily carnage.

We can’t because white identity is now entwined with an ahistorical view of the 2nd Amendment.
“What we do know is that the NRA, historically, supported gun control laws when those laws targeted black Americans, including the 1967 Mulford Act and 1968 Federal Gun Control Act, intended to disarm the Black Panthers and similar activist organizations.”…
We wouldn’t have to repeal the Second Amendment to do sane things to reduce gun violence and #massshootings like in El Paso. But those who thrive on white identity politics will tell you it’s the only other option—or point to red herrings like video games.…
