    I'm still confused as to how he reached this point, especially considering he wasn't raised to be a racist... Who wakes up one day and goes, "You know, I hate everybody, I want them all dead and I'm gonna start with the blacks" ??

    I'm so baffled by all of this, it's hurting my heart

    He says he wasn't raised a racist, it's not necessarily true. And racism is entrenched in our society and moreso in some areas. In other words, it is so "normal" no one thinks of it as racist. He probably thinks since no one he knows every lynched a black person, he wasn't raised racist.

    Take that blindness and add in a Black President, presumably despised because he's a socialist but let's be real, and a huge media outlet defending the gunning down of a black kid, dehumanizing people with brown skin, and howling about how our country is going to hell, and there's your recipe.

    Plus, he's fucknuts.

    Apart from the Trayvon Martin reference, this reads like it came out of that 1960s suitcase. It's nearly identical, right down to the stupid donkey/horse analogy, the "Jewish agitation" etc.

    The black folks out there committing crimes? The overwhelming majority of their victims are BLACK. It's a known gov't statistic. But to make it well known doesn't sell newspapers or increase ratings on Fox.

    Why Can’t Republicans Admit Dylann Roof Was Racist?

    By Jonathan Chait




    Jeb Bush: I'm not a criminologist, man. Photo: Drew Angerer/Getty Images The mysteriousness of Dylann Roof’s motivations for allegedly murdering a room full of African-Americans, rated on a scale of 1 through 10, is zero. Roof has been described by people who knew him as obsessed with racial hatred, has been photographed with racist symbolism, told his victims he planned to murder them because of their race, and even let one live specifically so that she could let the world know the reason for his crime. It is entirely possible that some form of mental illness or adverse life event caused Roof to embrace violent racism, but there is zero doubt that racism directly motivated his actions.

    Bizarrely, a number of conservative figures have treated Roof’s motives as unknowable. South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley wrote, “we do know that we'll never understand what motivates anyone to enter one of our places of worship and take the life of another.” The Wall Street Journal editorializes today, “What causes young men such as Dylann Roof to erupt in homicidal rage, whatever their motivation, is a problem that defies explanation beyond the reality that evil still stalks humanity.”

    Jeb Bush, appearing at the Faith & Freedom Coalition Conference, said, “I don't know what was on the mind or the heart of the man who committed these atrocious crimes.” When pressed for a follow-up by the Huffington Post, Bush continued to equivocate:
    "It was a horrific act and I don't know what the background of it is, but it was an act of hatred," Bush said.

    Asked again whether the shooting was because of race, Bush added, "I don't know. Looks like to me it was, but we'll find out all the information. It's clear it was an act of raw hatred, for sure. Nine people lost their lives, and they were African-American. You can judge what it is."
    What’s genuinely mysterious is not just why conservatives believe such nonsense but why they feel obliged to say it. After all, the Republican Party may be in general denial about the persistence of racism as a continuing force in American life, and openly racist whites may be a part of their constituency (just as they have long been part of the Democratic Party’s constituency).

    In 2000, George W. Bush gave a speech at Bob Jones University, which banned interracial dating. But Bush was competing in a Republican primary in South Carolina and really needed the votes of whites who opposed interracial dating. Neither Jeb Bush nor other Republicans need the votes of racist murderers to win an election. It would be very easy to identify a confessed white-supremacist murderer without doing violence to the overall conservative worldview. It is not like admitting the persistence of racial discrimination by police or employers or school administrators or courts, all of which put pressure on conservative policies. Just say there are still a small number of racist murderers in America!

    Roof's actions are a completely sensible expression of his twisted worldview. It's the failure to admit it that's senseless.

    i mean, i can see how their little right-wing fundie pea-brains could be in denial the first few hours after it happened but once the rhodesian flags, racist manifestos and obvious racist batshittery went public, and there wasn't a single word in there about christianity, how do they even keep a straight face?

    Lord only knows. Now it's all about mental health and dangerous prescriptions, because everyone knows mental health is one of Rick Perry's biggest causes. I'm sure they'll find a way to blame ACA and Obama, if they haven't already.

    Rick Perry said it was accidental but if it had a cause, it was probably drugs.

    It was planned for about 6 months, so of course it was just an "accident" or because he was totally high at that moment and even if you say something like "I killed you blacks because I don't like you" then it still counts as "war against religion". Of course.

    This guy's a jackarse. What's his solution then? To ban opioids? To make sure veterans can't get them? Most of them aren't even taking opiods. The cause of so many veteran suicides of posttraumatic stress disorder, which is NOT curable. It's only treatable with therapy and non-opioid medications. Taking away the support of the medications (under the guise of 'helping' them) will only drive people to suicide faster.

    This guy is either the hugest liar ever, or has no idea about PTSD and is only aiming to make things far worse than they are currently. I have (non combat) PTSD and have had for 6 years with no treatment, and now getting treatment now. These NON-opioid medications are a freakin' lifesaver (prazosin being the MOST helpful one I take).

    I'd really like to punch this guy in his shit-talking face.


    On Topic: His spokesman or whatever, came out to say he meant to say 'incident' rather than 'accident'. So this is gonna be like the whole Mitt Romney campaign, is it? Where his team have to come out after every speech he gives with the huge list of "he meant to say's...".


    Sorry for derailing this topic a bit, that idiot just made me so mad! Count me in with the people who are furious at certain parts of America sticking their fingers in their ears and humming to avoid admitting this was racially motivated. Disgusting!

    Right wing politicians cannot admit this is a racist act and that Dylann was a racist, because they would have to admit that THEY are racist, that THEY hold these same beliefs - calling this an "accident", saying these people would not have been shot had they been carrying their own guns. It's all nonsense, smoke and mirrors. We are going backwards in this country, NOT forward.

    Oh my goodness.. i'm speechless. .. Why couldn't Dylann have chosen the right path and NOT gone through with his horrific crime?

    My deepest condolences to the families and friends of the people who lost their lives.

    i just watched this video and would like to share it with you all.
