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.

    He hated Trump. Thought Trump was a globalist. Blaming Trump for hatred that has long been there is a type of useless flailing that democrats do that will lose them the next elections as well.

    Until democrats wake up to see how their own toxicity, corruption, and hypocrisy as WORSE than Trump, let that sink in, you're not going to get anywhere.

      Please read my post - specifically the part that says “Trump didn’t cause this - this toxic anti-immigrant and xenophobic atmosphere precedes Trump”

      Xenophobia has always existed with some people, but the media doesn't help when they sugar coat things either. The US borders MUST be secured.

      Borders must be secured. Libtard rhetoric like that from Beto O’Rourke is only making things worse. They sound nice and flowery and bleeding heart compassionate when they make idiotic arguments about how this one DREAMER is a valedictorian or a PhD, and then proceed to generalize that on to all illegal immigrants. People see through the stupidity of that argument, and honestly this is why you’ll see a red wave.

    Just because one crazy guy mixed up some facts doesn’t make those facts untrue.

    Wait, than why did he shoot up a damn synagogue? Most of the Jews here relocated a century ago, and integrated into the country's culture quite well. Idoit terrorist.

      Because the congregation was helping others who are just at the beginning of the journey they took a century ago.

      He thought immigration was a “Jewish plot” to “destroy America”

    Still pretend invasion wasn’t real? California with a few exceptions in some coastal cities, IS Mexico now. It already happened.

    This is such a tragedy. Sadly this isn’t the first and this isn’t the last time. Synagogues, churches, mosques, and other places of worships are easy targets. 😞
