I can’t help thinking abt families shopping at Walmart for school supplies being slaughtered like animals. El Paso like Gilroy has a large Latino population. Trump’s dehumanization & conflation of immigrants & criminals put targets on them.
“It’s about taking down immigrants. There’s a body count associated with these websites (8chan, 4chan) now”—Ben Collins (@oneunderscore__) on #ElPasoShooting. 21yo shooter posted a white supremacist screed/manifesto citing neo-Nazi killers Brevik, New Zealand mosque massacre…
#ElPasoShooting & the Gamification of Terror: Until law enforcement & media treat these shooters as part of a terrorist movement, the violence will continue…more celebrations of body counts on 8chan…to beat the last killer’s “high score.” via @bellingcat bellingcat.com/news/americas/…
Domestic terrorists keep using Trump’s *exact* language >> #ElPaso gunman used the phrase “send them back” about Hispanics in his racist manifesto. h/t @propornot
@propornot As death toll rises to 22 in El Paso, police say the #WhiteSupremacistTerrorist has no regrets or remorse.

This is the logical consequence of Trump & RW media's dehumanizing propaganda language—"open borders," "invasion/invaders," "illegals/animals/criminals," "send them back."
😨The arsonist is coming to see the fire >> Trump is coming to #ElPaso, Mayor Dee Margo just announced, on Wednesday. Mayor says it’s not a “political visit” and “he is the president of the United States.” #WhiteSupremacistTerrorism #ElPasoTerroristAttack
Make no mistake: Trump's Racism IS Calculated and Strategic >> His Campaign has amplified his propaganda language of "invasion" at the border w/ Facebook ads. The same language Trump's used repeatedly. The same language echoed by #ElPasoTerrorist. #Maddow nytimes.com/2019/08/05/us/…
