White Power Tuesday

1a

In the hours after the slaughter in El Paso, Texas, on Aug. 3, a final toll emerged: 22 dead, most of them Latinos, some Mexican nationals. A portrait of the gunman accused of killing them soon took shape: a 21-year-old from a suburb of Dallas who had been radicalized as a white supremacist online and who saw immigrants as a threat to the future of white America.

While much of the country reacted with a weary sense of sorrow and outrage, word of the mass killing was processed differently by members of Patriot Front, one of the more prominent white supremacist groups in the U.S.

In secret chat forums, some Patriot Front members embraced the spirit of the anti-immigrant manifesto left behind by the accused gunman. Others floated false conspiracy theories: the CIA was behind the murders; the accused killer was actually Jewish. Still other members cautioned that the group had its own “loose cannons” to worry about. It would be a bad look if the next mass murderer was one of their own.

But there was little, if any, regret over the loss of life.

    Stupid mighty white people have no place in a modern society,
    “All men are created equal” inside we all carry red blood that given the right blood type can be shared equally, time to grow up and out of your racist models, now.

    How annoying. Actual rain, ever stronger, started as I set off for the 14 minutes to the north door of the Hillside Cafe.

    No weather here, snow continuing to melt.

    I watched the first hearing all day. When the second one started, I made it maybe 30 minutes. I couldn’t sit there any longer, there are things that need to get done around here.

    Oil delivery today around 1:20, 250 gallon tank is full. That should hold me for awhile. It cost $497.17 to filler her up. Next big bills will be house and car insurance. Then in February, winter property taxes, and that will be the end of big money going out the door.

    I’ll need to cook tomorrow, will turn the TV up so I can be in the kitchen, ON MY FEET thank goodness, whipping up something.
