“The FBI is now investigating possible motives for the crime at Austins Bar and Grill, with race among them. A bystander told the Kansas City Star that just before opening fire the gunman shouted: “Get out of my country.”
A barman also told local media that the attacker used racial slurs before opening fire on Wednesday night.
The suspect allegedly fled on foot and was arrested five hours later at a restaurant just over the state border, 80 miles (130km) away in Clinton, Missouri.”
See Olathe shooting: India shocked after national killed in USOf course Trump is not responsible for the actions of every stupid jerk out there but he set the tone:
- Make America Great Again – OK, how does punishing immigrants accomplish that? It doesn’t. However it makes clear that people from other countries are “less than human” and that it’s OK to punish them. After all, POTUS is supposed to lead by example, right?
- America First – See MAGA, above. “America First” clearly suggests others are second class. If others are second class why not third class or even “unfit to live”?
- Ban All Muslims – Well, how are you going to do that? Religious test? That’s unconstitutional. From Muslim country? Not very precise. Also illegal. Dark complexion, accent? Yeah, that’s the ticket. Go to a bar and sort people out and shoot the ones you don’t like. Perhaps Trump will pay the legal bills…
- Counter-punching – If it’s OK for Trump to attack someone giving the slightest offence, why can’t I?
This isn’t really about some loser losing it. It’s about Trump not understanding leadership. If he understood leadership, he would lead his country towards the light not towards Hell. If he’s doing it deliberately, and understands leadership, he is a traitor to USA of the first magnitude.
