Posted on 08/05/2019 2:54:52 PM PDT by NKP_Vet
On Saturday The Gateway Pundit contributor Byron McKeeby pointed out that the shooter was a committed progressive.
It is clear from his words that he is a PROGRESSIVE white nationalist what was once defined as a Nazi.
This is not to say hes a Democrat or a Republican, but he is without question a progressive.
All you have to do is read his manifesto to see the obvious tell-tale signs.
Under his section titled Economic Reasons for the attack, the shooter states:
In the near future, America will have to initiate a basic universal income to prevent widespread poverty and civil unrest as people lose their jobs (to automation). Joblessness is in itself a source of civil unrest. The less dependents on a government welfare system, the lower the unemployment rate, the better. Achieving ambitious social projects like universal healthcare and UBI would become far more likely to succeed if tens of millions of defendants are removed.
Now THAT is some Nazi level stuff right there. Kill the undesirables so we can have our glorious government programs!
His was an act of environmental terrorism as well:
The decimation of our environment is creating a massive burden for future generations. Corporations are heading the destruction of our environment by shamelessly overharvesting resources.
Not exactly sounding like a Republican.
Our post pointing out a different twist to the liberal media spin went viral online.
But the leftists running Facebook would not allow this story to be posted.
TRUTH is the new hate speech.
Here are a few of the comments we received from readers this weekend.

Have they even confirmed it was the shooter’s manifesto on 8chan ?
That site is totally anonymous, so how do they know it was him?
No suprise, Fascistbook, Google, et. al., will do whatever they have to to achieve their goals.
Just posted it to FB again.
Facebook cannot stop the signal.
EXCLUSIVE: El Paso Walmart mass shooter Patrick Crusius’ father admits to nearly 40 years of drug addiction which tore apart his family and claims he has spoken directly to Jesus
So banning a Fakebook poster for correctly quoting a nutcase will turn that nutcase proglib into a conservatve Republican thereby proving it is all “Trumps fault.”
And the progs at fakebook believe their Stupid Human Trick will continue to work?
excellent. It will be interesting to see if it stays up.
Read a weird comment from an El Paso policeman saying that they had to accept the manifesto as from the shooter. That seemed odd to me. Why say they HAD too ?
And how do they know everything written in it is not a decoy. Suppose he’s an anti-fa activist. He’ll fix those Trump fascists. Put up a manifesto, then go into a WalMart and start blasting Hispanics while chanting Trump slogans (per Cat Tibs of Gutfeld and National Review fame, who is Cuban expat, that’s what Hispanic witnesses reported to Spanish media). More extensive investigation of his background and associations will probably put the lie to allegations he is Trumpist.
“Have they even confirmed it was the shooters manifesto on 8chan ?
That site is totally anonymous, so how do they know it was him?”
Why do you think they’ve spent the past 2 days taking 8chan offline?
Supposedly the cops were ‘on to him’ and ‘just didn’t stop him in time’.
Seems all/most of these wackjobs are ‘known’ wackjobs and we never can seem to ‘get to them in time’ before they turn evil and kill.
It sounds like the script from the Manson family.
Try to start a race war.
It almost makes me think not just antifa, but a foreign government is at work here.
If ‘we’ were off the world stage because there’s a hot civil/race war here...Cui bono...?
I can’t say on that, but I do believe that they took the channel down.
I've seen absolutely no evidence of this anywhere including the site I was just read this on(Intelligencer). In fact,from early reports, I thought this guy's social media imprint was minimal
Looks like the Leftists on FB dont want the shooter to be outed as a fellow Leftist. These shooters usually are Leftist, IMHO, evidence is censored or even confiscated.
someone posted this thread from a guy at Western Kentucky Uni yesterday. this is on the mark. the manifesto is titled “The Inconvenient Truth” (Al Gore?). this is what needs to go viral - the guy was in line with the Green New Deal basically, someone references David Attenborough in the replies:
Tweet: Bill BLack, Instructor @HistoryDeptWKU.
The manifesto is not the ravings of a madman or a brainwashed kid. Its what millions of Americans believe.
His logic is, so far as fascist logic goes, impeccable.
1. Our devastation of the environment means we cannot live at our current standard of living indefinitely.
2. One solution is uber-Green New Deal post-scarcity socialism. America can afford it. The political will for it is growing every year. And it will attract ever more immigrants as the global South warms.
3. He is unwilling to accept this, and is afraid the time is running out to prevent it. So the other solution is to preserve our standard of living—by decreasing our population.
Ecofascism is a much graver threat than climate change denial, folks...ETC ETC
I understand the impulse to suppress the dissemination of the manifesto, but I actually believe it is important to understanding the crisis at hand. And nearly all of it could be said out loud on national TV and be accepted as part of the discourse.

3 Aug: DrudgeReport: Walmart Shooter Manifesto
The Inconvenient Truth
I just want to say that I love the people of this country, but god damn most of yall are just too stubborn to change your lifestyle. So the next logical step is to decrease the number of people in America using resources. If we can get rid of enough people, then our way of life can become more sustainable...
btw FakeNewsMSM is avoiding the environmental aspects of the manifesto. choosing to report only the few bits that they can attribute to the “right”. and I haven’t seen any of them actually link to the manifesto itself, so people can read it for themselves.
Mother Jones is spinning it:
5 Aug: Mother Jones: The El Paso Manifesto: Where Racism and Eco-Facism Meet
It proposed genocide as a pathway to ecological sustainability.
by Alexander C. Kaufman
This story was originally published by HuffPost and appears here as part of the Climate Desk collaboration.
Titled The Inconvenient Truth, an allusion to Al Gores landmark climate change documentary, the ranting four-page document appeared on the extremist forum 8chan shortly before the shooting. Authorities have yet to confirm whether Patrick Crusius, the 21-year-old Dallas-area white man arrested in connection with the shooting that left at least 22 dead, is the author.
The environment is getting worse by the year, the manifesto reads. Most of yall are just too stubborn to change your lifestyle. So the next logical step is to decrease the number of people in America using resources. If we can get rid of enough people, then our way of life can become more sustainable.
HuffPost reviewed the document but, with consideration to the ethical concerns of broadcasting what might be a notoriety-seeking killers messaging, is not publishing a link to it...
For years now, denial served as the extreme rights de facto position on climate change. That is starting to change...
Slashing global greenhouse gases and increasing aid to help poor countries close to the equator adapt is the obvious way to change that trajectory...
But as planet-heating emissions continue surging and scientists projections grow more dire, eco-fascism is experiencing a revival in a subculture of far-right extremism online...
22 Jan 2013: UK Telegraph: David Attenborough - Humans are plague on Earth
Humans are a plague on the Earth that need to be controlled by limiting population growth, according to Sir David Attenborough.
We are a plague on the Earth. Its coming home to roost over the next 50 years or so. Its not just climate change; its sheer space, places to grow food for this enormous horde. Either we limit our population growth or the natural world will do it for us, and the natural world is doing it for us right now, he told the Radio Times...
Sir David, who is a patron of the Population Matters, has spoken out before about the frightening explosion in human numbers and the need for investment in sex education and other voluntary means of limiting population in developing countries...
We was too late!
