Like do we single out the religion of every suspect involved in a mass shooting or is that just reserved for Muslims? There's literally zero evidence available to the general public that would indicate this is related to ISIS or some other extremist group, yet dudes are taking the alleged name and appearance of an alleged suspect and running with it. Disgusting.
If he "just flipped his **** one day" how did he rally two other people to join him in "flipping their ****"?
A coordinated attack with multiple people don't just happen because they were having a bad day.
You completely missed my point.
Columbine took preparation....they're not labeled terrorists.
Oklahoma City took preparation....they're not labeled terrorists.
Charleston took preparation....he's not labeled a terrorist.
This attack today clearly took preparation.....folks see a picture of a middle eastern dude and its terrorism.
See where I'm going with this? Even if this was a terrorist act committed in the name of Islam, it's crazy to me that we tend to only apply the terrorist label to folks tied to Islam. Meanwhile, white males are committing the majority of mass shootings in America and they get to just be crazy loners who lost it one day.
Privilege is a real thing.
