Human pimple Marc Thiessen tries to make a case for how the El Paso shooting had nothing to do with Trump, but if it did, then by god, the Dayton shooting that followed soon after, was the fault of leftists.
The El Paso shooter WAS clearly inspired by Trump, in that he referenced Trump's same anti-immigrant language in his white supremacist manifesto. He shot Hispanics in Texas, clearly in a place where Mexican immigrants were often found.
There is no doubt Trump has ramped up the hate against immigrants and emboldened murderous white supremacists.
The Dayton shooter on the other hand, had no clear political motive for his act of murder. He killed random people in Dayton. He seemed to have clear lefty leanings, but he was a bit of crazy mess overall.
Importantly, the Dayton shooting happened very soon after the El Paso shooting-- the same night, and immediately gave Trump supporters a nice distraction and "whataboutism". Hard to blame Trump for El Paso when the Dayton was a dirty lefty! So there!
But to me, the Dayton shooting was a bit too convenient coming so soon with that different political bent to it. Sort of like it was set-up as a distraction for El Paso.
3 possibilities come to mind for how they could do this.
1) a more simple and benign way is the political ideology of the Dayton shooter was constructed after the shooter did his dirty deed, and pasted onto him to make him look like a lefty when he really wasn't. The shooting was done organically, just happened to come so soon after El Paso. A lot of the info on the shooter's leaning seems to come from the site Heavy.com,
which is of unclear reliability. Apparently his twitter feed gives most of the info, and it was taken down by twitter after the shooting, so we are relying on that the sites are honestly presenting the tweets-- we can't verify these independently (like with so much news).
2) more scary is the guy was a lefty but also known to be unstable and into guns. He was monitored and mind-controlled some way to go off as a planned distraction by the "deep state" if another shooting made Trump look bad.
3) also scary is Conor Betts, the shooter, was some sort of agent (his user name on twitter was "iamthespookster", where spook implies a spy or agent.*) posing as a lefty, and did the shootings on some sort of weird suicide mission, perhaps under orders. Maybe he thought he would be allowed to live.
Of course it's also possible that this 2nd shooting was just a great coincidence that happened to help the president, who is in constant political trouble.
Finally, we can't rule out that both the El Paso and Dayton shootings were programmed to occur by the deep state, and the political polar opposites were part of the op, and meant to further divide the US into factions.
But personally I tend to think the El Paso shooting was real as there are clearly many actual white supremacist terrorists and they are definitely feeling more excited with Trump's openly racist rhetoric from he most powerful office in the land.
*note as I write as "spooked" here, I am not a spook but am playing on the idea of being afraid of "spooks".
