I have seen two people on show of hands allege that the Texas shooter as antifa, but this is blatantly false. We know nothing of the shooters motives yet. Find these lies concerning?
I’m surprised that it is only 2.
I agree. I also figured more “false flag” conspiracies would be popping up. I’m glad there is not that much.
Yes, very concerning, but understandable. MSM does it all the time. It’s good to fact check and set the record straight. I appreciate it when someone points out errors in my facts. If a person can’t take the debate.... Also, I appreciate it when folks add a link to their source. That way I can judge the info for myself.
There is a link on the poll I believe.
There was but I will put it here anyways
Sorry, bower, I was referring to the people your question was about...I guess I had another brain fart.
(Maybe a good improvement for SOH would be to make it possible to see the question when you are in “post” mode)
PS thanks for the link.
Some people think Antifa is hiding under their beds at night.
I’ve read now several items that eluded to this being antifa inspired and part of the “civil war.” I don’t put much stock in it but I do like to measure how far people and the media will run with unsubstantiated stuff.
I see a lot of Democrat friends on Facebook who don't understand what terrorism is, and immediately scream "white-male terrorist".
Well, in all fairness, a lot of Republicans label any and all mass shootings committed by a white males as "Antifa" these days. See that all the time on SOH.
Indeed, and I think that's BS. We shouldn't assume these things.
I don't think this guy was a terrorist. But again we don't know yet (maybe we do I haven't checked the news yet today)
But of course if he were brown we would be immediately labeling him a terrorist
Maybe you're right bower. Usually we know if an attack is Islamic terrorism immediately based on the shouting "Allah Akbar". You'd have to provide me a case where folks were incorrect in assuming such a thing.
Not really. Intelligent people know to wait for more info. Unintelligent people will make up their minds no matter what they’re told anyway.
I’m used to it by now. It’s the InfoWars and Blaze crowd seeing discontent.
Please don’t lump us Blaze fans in with Alex Jones. We think he’s a moronic buffoon.
Yes, but no more so than the media’s tendency to try to associate shooters with the Tea Party or Christian Conservatism.
Where has that happened?
The Dylann Roof shootings, for one. Initial reports made him a Tea Party Conservative. Sorry, my vision makes it tough to dig for links.
That was done after the Aurora shooting as well.
I don’t recall that in either case, but then again I’m not sensitive to that. I’ll have to go back and Read the coverage.
I don’t see Antifa’s MO as shooting. I think they use sticks and stones and smoke bombs - I could be wrong about that, tho)
Some SoHers thrive on assumptions and lies.
What’s most ignorant about this claim is that Antifa doesn’t exist. It’s Bigfoot, Sasquatch, the Loch Ness monster. A rightwing boogeyman.
Lol I saw somebody saying "members of antifa should be arrested for conspiring with terrorists" and I'm like?? There aren't members of antifa they don't register as antifa lol
Propaganda is polluting America.
I saw that and I’ve also seen similar users challenge law and generally not be able to hold an argument if you challenge it.
Concerning, no, irritating, yes. Claude Frollo should know better about spreading lies, especially in the contexts of his religion...but then again...his religion did spread the idea of Jews and Converted Muslims sacrificing infants and dipping communion wafers in their blood multiple times.
I heard he was a round-earther
These claims are to political science what the flat earth model is to planetary science.
It wouldn’t surprise me. Those round earthers are ignorant people who continue to espouse their beliefs in the face of hard, cold YouTube facts. They don’t really like facts.
