A Nazi fetishist named Robert Bowers walked into the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania yesterday morning. He was armed with an AR-15 and three handguns. He killed 11 people, wounding six others.
According to a social media post made by Bowers, he carried out this disgusting act of terrorism because the synagogue helped refugees resettle to the United States.
From The Washington Post:
A man with that name had posted anti-Semitic statements on social media before the shooting, expressing anger that a nonprofit Jewish organization in the neighborhood has helped refugees settle in the United States. In what appeared to be his final social media post hours before the attack, the man wrote: “I can’t sit by and watch my people get slaughtered. Screw your optics, I’m going in.”
Robert Bowers doesn’t like refugees coming to the United States. Where else have I heard similar anti-immigrant rhetoric?
Oh, that’s right. Donald Trump, our president.
I am becoming more pro-immigration
People like Donald Trump and Robert Bowers are making me even more pro-immigration than I was before. When I see who hates immigration in all its various forms, I can’t help but support it even more.
Robert Bowers is a fan of the number 1488
There’s an image on Bowers’ Gab account, the preferred social media of white supremacists, that shows the number 1488 on what appears to be a radar gun.
The number 1488 is a magic number for white supremacists. The number 14 refers to the 14 words of Adolf Hitler: “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children.” The number 88 refers to the eighth letter of the alphabet. “H.” It’s “HH” which is short for “Heil Hitler.”
I hate Nazi fetishists.
