Not really. You naturally assume minorities are Democrats, that's a you problem. Nobody claimed that except you.

And, the picture in this link doesn't appear to be the same person you linked earlier, so again, that's a you problem.
Duh! All those brown people look the same. He got it totally right. And they are all exactly the same.

this is exactly like every other violent outburst in America: the real reason is not the obvious one.

People dont kill each other on the highway because someone forgot to use a turn signal. they kill each other because lots of Americans are horribly angry and it doesnt take much to finally set them off. Straw and camels and backs, ya know?

Same with dude in the news, he wasn't really that angry over being asked to pull up his mask. He was angry in general at all the bullshit over the last 18 months and something finally snapped inside his brain. If we'd had a real leader in 2020 instead of a wrinkled orange snowflake I suspect our nation would have come together in solidarity, just like EVERY OTHER EVENT IN HISTORY but instead we had a piece of shit pushing an extremist agenda to make Americans hate each other and during the 4th year it finally blew up in his face. Only he didn't suffer for it, 325 million people did.

Guys, this is not about masks. This is about a crumbling society.

Oh come on, this is literally one among thousands of shootings this year alone.

It's no biggie, just watering the tree of liberty for the right of EVERYONE, mentally ill or not, to own guns and nothing can EVER be done about it.

So why this incessant whining about something that occurs several times every day in the only nation where it occurs several times a day? You don't want to change it so shut the FUCK UP AND LIVE WITH IT!

"Oh it's THEIR fault" said every fucking responsible gun owner until they weren't. Fuck off with this bullshit, you cannot be this stupid as a nation, you HAVE TO KNOW why this happens. It's just more wilful ignorance from the nation that is so fucking stupid that you decided, collectively through an election, that Trump was the best choice.

Oh, sure we can, especially when we've got the Russian asset NRA helping make sure we stay this way. Just enough of us, at any rate.

Not sure about everything you used to describe it, but this TL;DR is on point. I agree, the shooting wasn't about a mask. It's about the stress, tension, and mental illness prevailing over America this day. We are armed and we are !@#$ing crazy. A dangerous combo. I wish ours was a better society, but it is not.

Yeah thats horse shit but I respect your right to believe it.
Do you disagree with the notion that people buy guns to use them? Everything else we buy we buy to use. Even things like insurance we buy to use. Why would guns be the one thing we buy for no reason ?

Apparently some people buy them to just look at them, so I've been told...collectors maybe? But they've gotta be the minority. Old ones from like the 17/18th centuries I'd understand just collecting them, but not new ones.

Well this is interesting. A thread about an anti-mask shithead shooting someone turned into a racist frothing piss from his mouth, an anti-vaxxer trying to brag (seemingly being too stupid to realize he got COVID meaning he's probably essentially vaccinated so his bragging about being unvaccinated is well...fairly stupid), and then a debate about guns (and how they have a singular modern purpose - that of serving as a surrogate penis of course).

It's about a country being deliberately poisoned by relentless right wing agitprop, foreign & domestic. The more disinformation out there the more likely that people will make errors of judgement like electing Trump, refusing to mask up or get vaccinated. It's a technique introduced by the Russians, know as the fire hose of falsehood. Steve Bannon called it flooding the zone with shit. People can't get through it to think at a higher order so they go with their gut. That's unfortunately where they're most easily manipulated.

Natural vaccination immunity is good only for 3-4 months.

Your anti-vaxx attitude makes more sense now as it appears you just believe a bunch of random wrong facts about COVID.

We have no idea how long natural immunity lasts - it appears to last at least a year at this point and may be lifelong. The real question is if natural immunity will protect against new variants, which is why everyone should get vaccinated.

According to this article I read:

"So far, none of the most common variants show much ability to evade the effects of full vaccination. But several have shown the ability, both in laboratories and in real life, to re-infect people who recovered from natural coronavirus infection and to infect people who have been only partially vaccinated."

So, if weblooker2021 is counting on the immunity he thinks he has from a previous infection, he'd best not.

Deliberate dissemination of disinformation need not be consistent or rational. There's nothing sincere about it.

This was my sentiment as well...it won't help to invalidate his supposed bullshit reasoning, he'll just make up another bullshit claim to try to justify his continuing and intentional ignorance. Facts be damned.
