Dayton Shooter Connor Betts Was Antifa’s First Mass Shooter

If their riots and assaults are any indication, he will be just the first of many.

 

Via The New York Post

Over the weekend, America suffered two mass shootings within hours of one another, in El Paso, Texasand Dayton, Ohio. These followed another mass shooting in Gilroy, Calif., a week earlier. The alleged perpetrators of the attacks were young, “lone-wolf” gunmen. All three carried out carnage against innocents using high-power rifles. All told, Santino ­Legan (Gilroy), Patrick Crusius (El Paso) and Connor Betts (Dayton) killed 34 people and injured dozens more.

While the attacks are similar, the response from liberals and leftists has been anything but.

Democratic presidential candidates Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris and Bernie Sanders succinctly condemned white nationalism — the ideology espoused by the El Paso shooter in his purported 2,300-word manifesto.

However, when it comes to condemning the Dayton shooter’s militant far-left views, all remain mum. Others, such as anti-police activist Shaun King, even claimed the Dayton shooter targeted blacks in a hate crime, though ­racism doesn’t appear to have been a component of his twisted worldview.

While Betts, the Dayton shooter, didn’t leave behind a manifesto, his extensive social-media footprint provides clues as to what may have inspired him. Federal investigators announced Tuesday that they are looking into his exploration of violent ideologies.

Betts had long expressed support for antifa accounts, causes and individuals. That would be the loose network of militant leftist activists who physically attack anyone to the right of Mao in the name of “anti-fascism.” In particular, Betts promoted extreme hatred of American border enforcement.

“Kill every fascist,” the shooter declared in 2018 on twitter, echoing a rallying cry of antifa ideologues. Over the next year, his tweets became increasingly violent. “Nazis deserve death and nothing else,” he tweeted last October. Betts frequently flung the label “Nazi” at those with whom he disagreed online.

By December, he reached out on Twitter to the Socialist Rifle ­Association, an antifa gun group, to comment about bump stocks, and the SRA responded to him. (A bump stock is an attachment for semiautomatic rifles that allow them to fire much faster.)

In the months leading to his rampage, Betts expressed a longing for climactic confrontation. In ­response to an essay by Intercept writer Mehdi Hassan titled, “Yes, Let’s Defeat or Impeach Trump—but What If He Doesn’t Leave the White House?” the shooter wrote: “Arm, train, prepare.”

By June he tweeted: “I want socialism, and I’ll not wait for the idiots to finally come round understanding.” Last week, he promoted posts that demonized Sens. Ted Cruz and Bill Cassidy’s resolution against antifa extremism.

……when it comes to far-left violent extremism, there is a gaping blind spot in the mainstream discourse, and we are less safe because of it.

Beyond banal condemnations of violence, politicians and leaders must work to uproot far-left militant beliefs from mainstream politics. The Dayton shooter promoted the same virulently anti-law-enforcement rhetoric that too many mainstream figures on the left flirt with. And yet it was courageous police officers who finally ended his carnage when they shot and killed him outside the Ned Peppers Bar in Dayton’s entertainment district.

……Last month, an antifa militant firebombed an Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility in Tacoma, Wash. Police say Willem van Spronsen was killed after he aimed a rifle at them during the attack. His gun had apparently malfunctioned before he could fire. In his manifesto, he called for his “comrades” to take up arms in confronting the ascendant fascism of the state. In one of Betts’ tweets ­before he extinguished the lives of nine fellow Americans, he responded to a person asking if van Spronsen had been a “villain or martyr?”

Betts flatly replied: “martyr.”

Antifa is a Soros-backed group that attacked peaceful rightwing protesters in Berkeley and Charlottesville,  and has been justifiably declared a domestic terrorist group by the Department of Homeland Security. They don’t protest, they riot.  Media like CNN loves them.

South Carolina Church Vandalized With Pro-Muzzie Messages

Via WSPA

ANDERSON CO., SC (WSPA) – Deputies are looking for the person or persons responsible for vandalizing a church in Anderson County.

The Anderson County Sheriff’s Office says someone broke windows and spray painted messages on the side of Midway Presbyterian Church on Midway Road.

According to deputies, the windows in the church were over 125 years old.

The words “SUBMIT TO GOD THRU ISLAM” and “MUHAMMED IS HIS PROPHET” were spray pained in black onto the siding of the church.

Elders of the church tell 7News they did not let the act of vandals disturb their services and lunch on Sunday.

“It was very disturbing because we feel like this was an individual act and we don’t hold any religious group responsible for it,” said Bob Harrell.

“We think it most likely was some misguided young people. However, we do take it very seriously and we’ll do everything we can to assist law enforcement.”

On Tuesday, Anderson Area Crime Stoppers said they are offering a $500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or people responsible for the vandalism. The church has also offered a matching rewards, bring the total reward amount to $1,000.

Anderson Area Crime Stoppers are also collecting donations to help the church with the cost of replacing the stained-glass windows.

According to the news release, donations can be sent to Anderson Area Crime Stoppers, P.O. Box 219, Anderson, SC 29622, and if you donate, please indicate “church windows” on the donation.

Anyone with information on the vandalism is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 888-CRIME-SC or the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office at 864-260-4400.

 

Misguided young people? Are you fucking kidding? With all of the Islamic-inspired carnage in the world and in the U.S., whomever did this isn’t naive by any stretch.

US Army War College Surrendered to CAIR

From Raymond Ibrahim

The US Army War College (USAWC) has just surrendered to the demands of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR)—an “unindicted co-conspirator,” to quote the U.S. Dept. of Justice, in the largest terror funding case in American history, and a designated “terrorist organization” for nations such as the UAE.

The June 19, 2019 planned lecture on my book, Sword and Scimitar: Fourteen Centuries of War between Islam and the West at the US Army War College in Carlisle Barracks was canceled due to a CAIR-induced hysteria that focused on presenting me—a native Arabic speaker of Egyptian/Middle Eastern descent—as a “racist” and “white nationalist” who is out to incite American soldiers to murder Muslims.

Although the USAWC claims that the event has been “postponed”—and that CAIR’s smear campaign had nothing to do with its decision—what really happened, along with the troubling lessons learned along the way, follow:

On January 4, 2019, I received an email, portions of which follow:

“Mr. Ibrahim: On behalf of the Director and Staff of the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center (USAHEC), I am honored to invite you to speak as part of the USAHEC’s 2019 Perspectives in Military History Lecture Series.  …   [W]e would like you to speak about your new book, “Sword and Scimitar.”  The Perspectives series attracts a wide audience including the U.S. Army War College students, faculty, and staff, ROTC cadets, Soldiers from regional military bases, university students and faculty, and the general public.”

“On a personal note,” the author of the email added, “I think your new book, and a lecture based on it, will resound very well with the primary audience of our lecture programs—the students and faculty of the U.S. Army War College.”

After I accepted the invitation, my USAWC contact reiterated: “I am excited to book you, I think your topic will be perfect for my audience.”

Aside from a few more exchanges on dates and logistics, that was that—until CAIR got wind of the event.

I’ve already discussed what initially happened: how the leadership of CAIR’s Penn. chapter sent a letter on May 28, 2019 to USAWC Commandant Gen. John Kem and Provost Dr. James Breckenridge, urging them to cancel my event because “Raymond Ibrahim’s book …  advance[s] a simplistic, inaccurate and often prejudicial view of the long history of Muslim-West relations which we find deeply troubling”; and how CAIR did not once cite a single sentence from my 352-page book to support their accusation that it “is based on poor research.”

After media outlets began reporting on CAIR’s displeasure with the USAWC, the latter called and assured me that the event was still on.  I also received a June 5, 2019 email from my USAWC contact saying, “We are good to go for the lecture.”

Then CAIR and allies took off their gloves and got nasty.  If a formal, ostensibly rational sounding letter of “concern” would not suffice, then hysteria would have to do.

On the very next day, June 6, 2019, CAIR issued a number of screeds, including a Press Release and a petition addressed to the USAWC by Linda Sarsour’s Islamist group, MPower Change.  The overall theme is that, if the USAWC goes ahead with my planned lecture, the “racist” military will get so riled that American soldiers will randomly begin to massacre Muslims at home and abroad.  The following excerpts from the MPower petition are typical; note especially the last paragraph…..

In the midst of their lies, CAIR and MPower repeatedly present me—an Arab-American whose parents immigrated from Egypt to evade Islamic oppression—as a “racist” associated with “white nationalism.”  But as the Investigative Project on Terrorism, which maintains a comprehensive dossier on CAIR’s shady and terrorist links, observes:

“Being a “white nationalist” doesn’t mean having European ancestry in Linda Sarsour’s world. Her group, MPower Change, joined the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) Philadelphia chapter in charging that Raymond Ibrahim, an American Copt of Egyptian ancestry, whose people have been severely discriminated against under Islamic rule for centuries, is a “white nationalist.”….  To classify Ibrahim in the same category as white supremacists who hate Muslims for being non-white is to show ignorance of the severe persecution and discrimination faced by the Coptic people under nearly 14 centuries of Islamic rule.  Copts face constant discrimination and persecution at the hands of their Muslim neighbors … [including] Jim Crow-style conditions in their homeland.”

……Regardless of the baseless and hysterical nature of CAIR’s and its Islamist allies’ allegations, on June 10, 2019, the US Army War College caved in to their demands and canceled the event.  In my last phone call with the USAWC on that same day, I suggested a compromise: turn my lecture into a debate, and pit me against any academic of CAIR’s choosing.  Even though I was under no obligation to make such a concession, it still wasn’t good enough for the USAWC.

Perhaps the most dishonorable aspect of this entire fiasco is that, in a vain effort to save face and pretend that the prestigious United States Army War College is not surrendering to the demands of a notorious Islamist organization—whose subversive tactics and terroristic ties are well documented (hereherehere, and here)—the USAWC’s official story is that my lecture has only been “postponed,” and not because of CAIR’s demands.

As a June 10, 2019 report notes, the USAWC’s decision to “postpone” the event “comes in the wake of strong opposition from the Muslim community to the previously scheduled appearance of author Raymond Ibrahim.  The Army War College on Monday, however, suggested that the postponement had nothing to do with the outcry from the Muslim community” (emphasis added).

Reality is clear enough: for the USAWC suddenly to postpone a long-planned event only nine days before schedule—and just a handful of days after CAIR’s smear campaign—is not a “coincidence”; it is a clear message for all.

……The grand lesson of this entire debacle should be disheartening for all who care about this nation.  If an ethnic Egyptian and native speaker of Arabic, with verifiable credentials, whose extended relatives continue to be persecuted because they are Christian, can be characterized by Islamist groups with terror links as a “racist” and “white nationalist”; and if, of all places, the US Army War College, as opposed to the average “liberal” college, can so easily capitulate to such patently deceptive tactics—the true motives of which are to keep the actual and troubling history between Islam and the West concealed from the military—know that the hour is late indeed.

FYI:

CAIR was founded in 1994 by three leaders of the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP) — Nihad Awad, Omar Ahmad, and Rafeeq Jaber, and funded by the Holy Land Foundation for Relief, a designated terrorist organization. Mousa Abu Marzook, the current deputy political chief of Hamas, served on the board of directors. They fund Hamas and their parent organization is the Muslim Brotherhood.  Their function as a terrorist operative  is well documented. They didn’t have to disclose their donors. The Muslim Brotherhood has even formed its own U.S.-based political party.

The Army War College, an institution that is supposed to prepare and educate warriors to face the threats against America and democracy, has curtailed the curriculum so that their students are not exposed to radical Islam. God forbid Islamofascism, which has accumulated quite a body count in the name of allah, should be viewed as a threat.

When an Army officer at the Joint Forces Staff College in Norfolk, Virginia,  put together a fact-based presentation titled: “A Counter-Jihad Op Design Model,  which made mention of our war against radical Islam, he was summarily dismissed. Can’t offend the enemy. It might make America look politically incorrect.

A former Army Lieutenant and avowed communist was mentored by a radical muzzie professor at West Point.

LTC Matthew Dooley , a former instructor at the Joint Forces Staff College (JFSC) was fired for telling the truth about the Islamic enemy.

The pro-Islamist disease has metastasized.

Egyptian-born terrorist Hesham H. Islam was actually hired as a Pentagon aide,  in spite of having ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and other terrorist groups. Major Stephen Coughlin, an intelligence analyst was fired for questioning Islam’s access to classified information and briefing the connection between groups like the Muslim Brotherhood and terrorism.

An Army Reserve Public Affairs unit decided to pay a friendly visit to a Columbus, Ohio mosque that not only supports Islamic terrorism but has been exposed as having ties to terrorist groups. The unit left with free Qurans.

During Obama’s Dhimmified regime, the Pentagon insisted that we weren’t at war with a violent theocracy that’s at war with us.

The military hierarchy seems to have no trouble with radical muslim thugs  in the ranks, kowtowing to the violent ideology of Islam, or high-ranking officers who send emails to subordinates calling Christians “racist and terrorist”.

Islam is diametrically opposed to every Constitutional principle on which this country was founded. Under the muzzie point of view, Sharia law trumps all other laws. It’s meant to overtake and replace all Western civil, criminal, and government jurisdiction. The founding principles of this country did not hinge on a violent ideological theocracy that advocated the deaths of those who didn’t hold the same religious beliefs.  Letting them thrive here is suicidal.

They attacked this country on 9/11. Now they sit in Congress and teach at our military academies. Let that sink in.

 

Al Qaeda Operative Arrested In Arkansas

Via Arkansas Times

Bilal Al-Rayanni, 28, a Yemini national living in Helena-West Helena, has been charged with providing support to a terrorist organization in Yemen and providing a false name on a passport, the U.S. attorney’s office for the Eastern District of Arkansas and the FBI announced today.

According to the announcement, Al-Rayanni, also known as Bilal Kassim Alawdi, provided support to Al Qa’ida in the Arabian Peninsula by working for the terrorist group for three months in 2014. He was living in Yemen at the time, but previously lived in Arkansas.

Al-Rayanni has been held on a federal charge of making a false statement on his passport since June. He was to be arraigned before U.S. Magistrate Judge Jerome Kearney today.

If convicted, Al-Rayanni faces a sentence of no more than 20 years on the support of a terrorist organization charge and not more than 15 years on providing a false statement on a passport. He could be fined $250,000 on each charge.

The FBI, the Little Rock Joint Terrorism Task Force and the State Department’s Diplomatic Security Service investigated.

How in the fuck did he get in the country?

The terrorists busted at the compound in Taos, New Mexico were planning a bloody jihad , including an attack on an Atlanta hospital, the military, businesses, and schools.
Al Qaeda holds Death To The West conferences in  Chicago, there’s a substantial radical muzzie enclave in Dearborn, Michigan,  and Jamaat Al Fuqra terrorists have established training centers within our own borders.  The Muslim Brotherhood, the Arab-American Action Network, and CAIR, three major facilitators of Islamic terrorism, operate freely in the United States. What the hell are they doing here?  They have no damned business being in this country.

Dayton Shooter Inspired by Antifa (UPDATED)

 

UPDATE:

He attended an antifa rally toting the same gun he used in the attack.

Via Gateway Pundit:

The shooter Connor Betts was pictured with satanic patches on his jacket in a previous photo — via Robby Starbuck.

The patch “against all gods” is a blackcraft cult product.

WHIO reported:

The May 25 rally attracted about 500 to 600 counter-protesters who opposed the nine Klansman who came from Indiana and protested in Courthouse Square. The counter-protest group was fenced 0ff away from the Klansman and several people in the crowd were seen carrying firearms.

Betts wore a bandanna covering part of his face and sunglasses. He spoke briefly with a reporter in the crowd during the event. He carried a gun which appeared to be similar in style to the one used in Sunday’s shooting…

…The Dayton Daily News reported Monday that a friend of Betts told police the would-be Dayton shooter discussed mass shootings. But the friend, Will El-Fakir, told the newspaper Betts was “definitely not a right-leaning person. His political views definitely leaned to the left.”

 

Via The New York Post

Over the weekend, America suffered two mass shootings within hours of one another, in El Paso, Texasand Dayton, Ohio. These followed another mass shooting in Gilroy, Calif., a week earlier. The alleged perpetrators of the attacks were young, “lone-wolf” gunmen. All three carried out carnage against innocents using high-power rifles. All told, Santino ­Legan (Gilroy), Patrick Crusius (El Paso) and Connor Betts (Dayton) killed 34 people and injured dozens more.

While the attacks are similar, the response from liberals and leftists has been anything but.

Democratic presidential candidates Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris and Bernie Sanders succinctly condemned white nationalism — the ideology espoused by the El Paso shooter in his purported 2,300-word manifesto.

However, when it comes to condemning the Dayton shooter’s militant far-left views, all remain mum. Others, such as anti-police activist Shaun King, even claimed the Dayton shooter targeted blacks in a hate crime, though ­racism doesn’t appear to have been a component of his twisted worldview.

While Betts, the Dayton shooter, didn’t leave behind a manifesto, his extensive social-media footprint provides clues as to what may have inspired him. Federal investigators announced Tuesday that they are looking into his exploration of violent ideologies.

Betts had long expressed support for antifa accounts, causes and individuals. That would be the loose network of militant leftist activists who physically attack anyone to the right of Mao in the name of “anti-fascism.” In particular, Betts promoted extreme hatred of American border enforcement.

“Kill every fascist,” the shooter declared in 2018 on twitter, echoing a rallying cry of antifa ideologues. Over the next year, his tweets became increasingly violent. “Nazis deserve death and nothing else,” he tweeted last October. Betts frequently flung the label “Nazi” at those with whom he disagreed online.

By December, he reached out on Twitter to the Socialist Rifle ­Association, an antifa gun group, to comment about bump stocks, and the SRA responded to him. (A bump stock is an attachment for semiautomatic rifles that allow them to fire much faster.)

In the months leading to his rampage, Betts expressed a longing for climactic confrontation. In ­response to an essay by Intercept writer Mehdi Hassan titled, “Yes, Let’s Defeat or Impeach Trump—but What If He Doesn’t Leave the White House?” the shooter wrote: “Arm, train, prepare.”

By June he tweeted: “I want socialism, and I’ll not wait for the idiots to finally come round understanding.” Last week, he promoted posts that demonized Sens. Ted Cruz and Bill Cassidy’s resolution against antifa extremism.

America’s historical and contemporary struggles with fringe far-right violence has provided politicians, leaders and media with blueprints to identify and confront that form of extremism. The national unity in rejecting violent white-nationalist ideologues like James Fields and Dylan Roof are emblematic of America’s resolve against the far right.

The unanimous rejection of the El Paso shooter’s beliefs, including by President Trump, once more demonstrated the nation’s resolve against hard-right hate. Yet when it comes to far-left violent extremism, there is a gaping blind spot in the mainstream discourse, and we are less safe because of it.

Beyond banal condemnations of violence, politicians and leaders must work to uproot far-left militant beliefs from mainstream politics. The Dayton shooter promoted the same virulently anti-law-enforcement rhetoric that too many mainstream figures on the left flirt with. And yet it was courageous police officers who finally ended his carnage when they shot and killed him outside the Ned Peppers Bar in Dayton’s entertainment district.

His case also makes clear that antifa’s violence goes far beyond the street hooliganism it has become infamous for. The group espouses the belief that liberal democracy is irredeemably oppressive — fascistic, even — and must be thoroughly destroyed.

Hence, acts of extreme violence against individuals, property and the state are seen as stepping stones, bringing us closer to the collapse of society and a new, more just societal order. As anyone familiar with 20th-century history knows, apocalyptic ideas of this kind won’t stop with street thuggery.

Last month, an antifa militant firebombed an Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility in Tacoma, Wash. Police say Willem van Spronsen was killed after he aimed a rifle at them during the attack. His gun had apparently malfunctioned before he could fire. In his manifesto, he called for his “comrades” to take up arms in confronting the ascendant fascism of the state. In one of Betts’ tweets ­before he extinguished the lives of nine fellow Americans, he responded to a person asking if van Spronsen had been a “villain or martyr?”

Betts flatly replied: “martyr.”

More:

Dayton shooter tweeted extreme left views and had an abiding interest in violence:

A Twitter account that appears to belong to Dayton mass shooter Connor Betts retweeted extreme left-wing and anti-police posts, as well as tweets supporting Antifa, or anti-fascist, protesters.

The most recent tweet on the @iamthespookster account was on August 3, the day of the shooting, when he retweeted a post saying, “Millenials have a message for the Joe Biden generation: hurry up and die.”

The user’s Twitter bio reads: “he/him / anime fan / metalhead / leftist / I’m going to hell and I’m not coming back.” One tweet used the hashtag #HailSatan.

……In the hours before the Dayton shooting, the Twitter account “liked” several tweets about a shooting in El Paso that left 22 dead, including one supporting gun control and others that called the El Paso shooting suspect a “terrorist,” and a “white supremacist.”

The account retweeted messages supporting Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, as well as posts against ICE agents, including one that said, “these people are monsters,” and multiple posts condemning police, and supporting Antifa protesters, who often use violent tactics.

Antifa are bilious little terrorist thugs who hate America, the Constitution, freedom of speech (except for their own),  straight white people (except for the tokens in their ranks), and capitalism (they’re unemployed and living in their parent’s basement). They’re pro-illegal alien, pro-muzzie terrorist,  New World Order/One World Government,  and they admit they were indoctrinated on college campuses and universities.

One of their leaders, Mark Bray, author of “Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook” , thinks violence is perfectly acceptable when people disagree with their malfeasance.  Their manifesto makes it clear.

The DHS finally categorized their group’s violence as domestic terrorism.

And the Dems and their media tools love them.

There’s one consolation; the little shitbag is in hell.  The Dems should be there, too.

The leftwing is mind-numbingly stupid. They quickly switch from blathering out their idiotic talking points, to rage.  They should not have firearms, be allowed to drive, procreate, or vote.
