"'Beer in one hand, a gun the other' — Perfectly describes the 90% of Trump's base... I'll lay odds he was in fact a Trump voter..."

A not untypical comment on the WaPo article "‘A beer in one hand, a gun in the other’: Man kills 1, injures 7 at San Diego apartment pool."

Wouldn't the Trump Voter shoot at them with his beer and then take a swig from the gun?

3rdGradePB_GoodPerson said...

It's absurd to jump to the conclusion that this was a DJT voter.

To be conclusive we'd need to find out what type of beer it was.

DrMaturin said...

This sort of thing is why Trump will carry 45 states in 2020.

Lost My Cookies said...

I'd have to agree, because it sounds like he was enjoying himself.

Nonapod said...

That's right. Keep it up with the disdain and hatred. Keep insulting those deplorables. That strategy is sure to be persuasive and get them to agree with you on anything, right?

Rene' Saunce said...

So, without even knowing why, it's assumed the shooter is a Trump voter. OK
Even sweeter, the rest of us are all guilty by association, too.


Throw all deplorables in jail. It's the only way.

White guy shoots blacks and Hispanics. Hang on folks -this story will be milked.

A Trump voter would have better aim.

This sort of thing is why everyone should carry a 45 in 2017.

From the article.....

Police said seven people were struck by gunfire: four African American women, two African American men and one Hispanic man. Another African American man broke his arm while running away from the shooting. All the victims were adults.

We get a breakdown of racial attributes, but only when the gunman is white.

Yeah, that seems to be a typical refrain - the lamestream media ignoring minority on white violence, while going all out on white on minority violence.

By the way, remember that white guy who shot that Indian engineer in a Kansas bar last February? Oh, right! When was the last time you heard about it?

Gahrie said...

The vast majority of murders take place in areas that voted for Hillary.

MadisonMan said...

California Man. More likely a Hillary voter, though I suppose it depends on which part of San Diego.

More pertinent fact: Man deeply in debt, and desperate. That kind of thing knows know politics.

Greg Hlatky said...

WaPo commenters don't consider blacks shooting other blacks as perfectly describing Hillary's base. In fact it's not even in their radar.

Fernandinande said...

Police described him as a white male

The 18 year-old black male who raped several and beat to death one elderly Asian woman is just a 'teen' and a 'class clown'.

The Godfather said...

Suppose he was a Trump voter. So what? He's one person out of about 63 million. Does that mean anything about Trump? How about the 63 million Trump voters who did NOT shoot anyone? Do they mean anything about Trump?

gspencer said...

This commentator has a JD and an LLM (taxation), rarely drinks, and doesn't own a gun (though is in no way opposed to getting one), and is a Trump voter.

I Callahan said...

There is more weapons grade stupid in WaPo comment sections than seems physically possible.

AllenS said...

This week, Baltimore reached a grim milestone: 100 murders before the end of April. It’s the first time that’s happened since 1998.

I wonder how many of them were killed by a white man with or without a beer.

exiledonmainstreet said...

I assume the gay rights nutbag who shot at people in the Family Research Council HQ in DC few years ago was an Obama voter, but we didn't hear much about him. He managed to shoot a security guard in the arm before the guard took his gun away.

Thankfully, it appears that gay rights activists are bad shots.

Then there's Professor and multiple murderess Amy Bishop, a proud product of Harvard's PhD program. Althouse blogged about her in 2010, noting how the MSM somehow managed to cover the story (minimally) while ignoring the fact that Bishop was an Obama fangirl and fervent progressive.

It wouldn't surprise me at all if he's a Trump voter. Would anyone be surprised if Kori Ali Mohammed was an Obama voter?


"The self-proclaimed rapper who shot and killed three people in downtown Fresno because he 'hates white people' has been pictured in police custody. Kori Ali Muhammad, 39,"

A few points:
1. We must not rush to blame the shooter. I'm sure there's something in the backgrounds of the victims that warranted this. We must get to the bottom of this and troll through the Facebook profiles of the victims to see if there's any indication of anti-white sentiment.
2. There is no such thing as a hate crime (most of the reported ones are fake anyway), so we shouldn't be quick to label this as one.
3. We shouldn't care about this shooting because people die of gun violence in Chicago and Baltimore all the time. It's all about black on black crime folks!
4. If the victims had guns, this could've been prevented.


tcrosse said...

He should have had a nice Zinfandel instead of the beer. That would have made him less deplorable.

So you want to treat him the way the leftist media treats Muslim terrorists?

Michael K said...

It sounds like suicide by cop with an extra helping of racial resentment.

He lived at the same complex, was an auto mechanic with $100,000 in debts and in BK.

Selis appeared to be having severe financial problems, and listed the apartment complex as his residence, according to a 2015 bankruptcy filing. He owed thousands to a number of different medical centers in the San Diego area, and had been subject to claims from a number of credit card companies, records show.

In total, Selis appeared to be in debt of more than $100,000, according to the filing.


About half of the comments have similar TDS tone.

That's entirely possible.

This weekend in Shitcago (courtesy of heyjackass.com) (more mayhem saved by rain)

A Saturday that clocks in with a couple inches of rain along with some 40 degree temps is always more effective than a tip app and some microphones.

Shoot-o-Rahm-a Tally: 4 killed, 19 wounded
2016 weekend tally: 5 killed, 28 wounded
2015 weekend tally: 5 killed, 31 wounded
2014 weekend tally: 5 killed, 26 wounded

Readers of the WP live in darkness. Why else would they read a paper that aspires to kill democracy by denying it sunlight?

Doug said...

Why can't the media begin to do two things immediately: 1. include in their coverage every time a violent is committed by someone who is in this country illegally, and 2. include in their coverage every time a handgun death is committed with a firearm that was not legally purchased or registered by the shooter?

Earnest Prole said...

He says "beer in one hand, gun in the other" like it's a bad thing.

Michelle Dulak Thomson said...

Does the "90% of Trump voters" include the 53% of white women who voted for Trump? Because, you know, I doubt that most of them go about armed. Some, sure.

I see some people on Facebook starting to push the term "Radical Republican Terrorist."

Martin said...

Liberals hate America and despise Americans. We have had that driven home sine the morning if Nov. 9, 2016.

It's not universal, but many of the ones who don't still support and defend (rather than denounce) the ones who do, so for them it is almost a distinction without a difference.

The few who do criticize the haters seem to couch it in tactical terms--not that it is wrong to hate the nation and its citizens, but showing it does not serve the Cause.

btb, Chuck at 11:35 AM gets +1000

Dementia, baby. It's never pretty.

So Trump is out to solidify the meaning of the Second Amendment and pitch that unneeded 1st Amendment that he must reluctantly confront every day. Free the Guns and Limit the Speech that Trump doesn't like! It must be so, since that's what Reince Priebus said.

Dust Bunny Queen said...

'Beer in one hand, a gun the other' — Perfectly describes the 90% of Trump's base... I'll lay odds he was in fact a Trump voter..

Well, that is just ridiculous and insulting. We Trumpies would say...Hold my beer. Don't want to spill or waste any now, do we. Plus you would be able to get a much better shot. Probably why there was only one fatality. Duh!

CJ said...

Whatever happened with that school shooting in Fresno, by the way?

I guess there's no time with the networks giving us updates on what Dylann Roof had for breakfast this morning.

wendybar said...

Liberals aren't smug?

exiledonmainstreet said...

"Free the Guns and Limit the Speech that Trump doesn't like! It must be so, since that's what Reince Priebus said."

The only people I see who are trying to limit speech are the nasty Antifas who beat people and shit in the street to keep Ann Coulter from speaking.

And yeah, if you people are going to do that, we damn well are going to keep our guns.

holdfast said...

So a black Muslim shoots a bunch of cops (as happened a couple of times last year) and the motive must be . . .

. . . wait for it. . . .

Police racism!
