NAZI shooter ranted about Immigrant “invasion”
“A couple of hours before opening fire in a Pittsburgh synagogue, Robert Bowers, the suspected gunman, posted on the social network Gab, “hias likes to bring invaders in that kill our people. I can’t sit by and watch my people get slaughtered. Screw your optics, I’m going in.” hias is the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, and Bowers had posted about it at least once before.
Two and a half weeks earlier, he had linked to a hias project called National Refugee Shabbat and written, “Why hello there hias! You like to bring in hostile invaders to dwell among us?” Another post that most likely referred to hias read, “Open you Eyes! It’s the filthy evil jews Bringing the Filthy evil Muslims into the Country!!”
Trump may not have caused this but the anti-immigrant anti-refugee and anti-Muslim political culture that preceded Trump certainly enables this.
Stop with the xenophobic hysteria. It’s caused deaths here and shooters in Italy and Nazi like riots in Germany.
