Trump bots should commence their denials of motive, insistence that he's a 'librul', and denunciation of the source … soon.

Synagogue shooter explained exactly why he killed—Republican conspiracy theories
Despite a thousand and one window stickers and a long history on social media, the press has been careful to avoid “speculating” about the motives of pipe-bomber Cesar Sayoc. After all, it’s hard to say why he sent explosives to the people whose pictures he had decorated with cross-hairs below tableaus celebrating the wisdom of Donald Trump. Why … it could be anything.

That’s not an issue with synagogue shooter Robert Bowers. On the morning of his mass murder, Bowers sent a message explaining exactly why he was doing it.

This isn’t complicated. It’s not a conspiracy plot hidden in pizza ingredients. It doesn’t need to be interpreted by a mystery character hiding behind a Sesame Street name.

Republicans have spent years building up the idea that immigration is an existential threat to America. Republicans have also spent years alleging that Jews are secretly funding both immigrants and protesters. What Bowers did on Saturday morning is the direct result of that one plus one = 10 dead and counting. Bowers’ finger may have been on the trigger. But a lot of Republicans encouraged him to pull it. Including Donald Trump.

Jewish billionaire investor George Soros is the most-frequent bogeyman of the right not because he’s a billionaire, or because he’s an investor. It’s that … other adjective in front of his name that counts. Judicial Watch, a group frequently cited by both Gaetz and Trump, has an entire archive of Soros conspiracy theories, and a fund-raising page just dedicated to those who want to get in his way.

Trump has said that the midterm elections are about “Kavanaugh and the caravan,” and Trump has blamed Soros for both.

[…]

Trump is right to say that the people in that synagogue needed protection. From people like him.

Denounced them from the right of Trump, not from the left, nothing liberal in anything he ever posted, the guy was a Nazi, clear and simple, not a socialist, not a commie, a Nazi.
So he disagreed and denounced the president, and then used him as an inspiration to shoot and kill people?
That makes no sense to sane people.

I didn't say that...this guy was already a fucking Nazi before Trump was elected..trying to portray him as a liberal is disgusting and pathetic. Show me one shred of evidence this guy was a liberal, Democratic voter registration? Embracing liberal causes, any of them? Praising a single Democrat in any social media? Just one piece of evidence and I will shut the hell up. Not thinking Trump was hating Jews enough aint going to cut it.

To you he was either inspired by Trump or he was a liberal? I didn’t say he was and don’t think he was either. Can you imagine there’s some middle ground? I think I can.
