  1. Statistics show that whites are the least likely to commit interracial murder yet somehow "toxic white males" are the problem. This is another hoax. This Iranian is not a white supremacist. That;s a joke.

  2. There we go Donald Trump, now you can be happy about what you been promoting! HATE!
    Stupid racist, all this is because of the president of the United States.

  3. DEAR FBI, you recently group domestic crimes in one category. You must track and report White Supremacists domestic crimes separately. Trump are you listening. Remember these people also hate Jewish people.

  4. I've never read a manifesto before, but I'd bet $10,000 that it's not at all about what this nut sucker being interviewed just claimed it was about. He just called 4chan a white supremacist website. ,o he's clearly just a propaganda pushing weasel. These media demons will never blame the monster who did the evil act — they'll just blame the gun, Trump, and his supposed white skin, even though I doubt "Santino" is very white…

  5. People killed by Antifa in last 10 years: 0
    People killed by male white supremacist terrorists in past 10 years: 313 (oops, now it's 316)

  6. So where are all the proud MAGAtard trolls that have been infesting (yea, I said it) the msnbc and cnn channels? Got something cute to say about "liberals"? The blood is on you.

  7. Another Trump worshipping White Nationalist inspired by the President and the GOP war on diversity and immigration. As usual, these cowards only attack unarmed people/children and then their supporters call it Fake news…..

  8. so, will ALL white Senators and House Reps denounce this or are only Muslim congresspeople expected to condemn violence from people of color? <crickets>

  9. This is not going to get better anytime soon. I, for one, fully expect there will be serious violence in the 2020 elections. America has way, way too many people that think like the racist pig that did this thing, and they tend to be gun nuts.
    your stupid big headed racist president is the reason for the rise in hate crimes and this sort or domestic terrorism.
    Eventually, America will have to recognize that it does have a problem with terrorists, but most, the great majority, are home grown. Will America be burning in a bloody civil war, before figuring it out???
    One suspects that will be the case.

  10. If it’s shown that the shooter was a white supremacist it will not be long until trump and republicans label him a lone sick individual. They’ll never address the increasing amount of white nationalist terrorism or how more Americans die in the US from white nationalist terrorism than any other form of terrorism.

  11. People don't understand the degree that Trump's words mirrors these "manifestos". The average person see's his words as being offense, (which they are), but beneath the surface, heis speaking directly to a particular demographic. Go read some white nationalist literature, then re-read Trump's speeches and tweets.

  12. DHS also known at the Dept of Homeland Propaganda. May have been the 3 letter agency who staged this psy-op. The One World Order does approve.
    Psyopper's are gonna psy-op, and that they do around the clock, seven days a week.

  13. These are the trumpee nuts trump will cater to more and more as we get closer to the election Incase he loses. He will rule them up with it was rigged and they (Dems deep state, liberals) are trying to take their country so these violent tendency trumpee sycophant will wage a terrorist type war of violence against Dems, liberals, people of color and nonevengelical, anti trump politicians, reporters, networks etc. and AG Barr will do nothing about but claim it is just some “individual’ nut not a loosely organized group of trump terrorists

  14. Makes you scared to attend any public function for fear these white national nuts
    It's Trumps fault time to charge him for exciting violence .

  15. United States is now so crime permeated that its citizens are forced to carry guns whenever they leave their home.
    The best way to fight this is to allow open carry permits of fire arms in every state.

  16. Spin it any way you want, but, as long as people support Tramp, this will keep happening. Every Tramp supporter is responsible for this! All of them! Tramp and every vestige of his "kind" needs to be purged from the government.

  17. He called the festival goers “white twats.” More msm propaganda. Why can they just tell us the truth?!

  18. 4chan is a white nationalist message board … lololol … wonder if he hangs out with the hacker known as 4chinz?
