Reading some comments on Facebook is pure gold. Antifa, ISIS, Government coverup, shadow govt ect...

Funny you didnt see this level of internet forensics after orlando? #-o
Maybe the shooter spent too much time in the echo chamber of a government conspiracy Internet forum, and it drove him to insanity. So in a roundabout way, the shooting would then be the direct result of a government conspiracy, albeit an imaginary one. It’s a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Thats as good of a theory as ive seen today!! =D>
It's amazing how little has been uncovered about the guy. There's more info about the girlfriend and his brother than him.

I suspect that there is a lot more to come out on this guy. I saw a report tonight that he had a lot of explosive material.

Quoting, "Maybe the shooter spent too much time in the echo chamber of a government conspiracy Internet forum, and it drove him to insanity. So in a roundabout way, the shooting would then be the direct result of a government conspiracy, albeit an imaginary one. It’s a self-fulfilling prophecy."

Sorry Splitter, that theory does not fit well with the facts already revealed. For a start, the guy spent much of his life in the government. He was one of them.

On the news commentary today was this... Since the election of the President there has been a growing "resistance". There have been outfits such as Antifa and the like, very well funded, mobilised, organised, led and transported to various scenes to make a powerful presence noticed and felt. The media has dutifully reported on their presence hither and yon. They are characterised by emotional hysteria, screaming and shouting, as well as an extremely virulent intolerance for anything or anybody they disagree with. They are oriented towards, indeed focussed upon, threatening behaviours, intimidation, coercion and violence. Their violence has been directed against the so-named "deplorables", the Trump supporters, conservatives (whether large or small "c"), libertarians, tea party types, constitutionalists, anti-war, Christians, free-speech advocates, denizens of the infamous "fly-over"country, etc etc etc. It has varied from closing down functions where speakers they hated were scheduled to appear, through to meting out beatings and assaults, through to property damage, reckless disregard for the safety and well-being of others, disorderly behaviour, starting and prosecuting riots, and progressed right the way to the shooting of several congressmen/senators at baseball practice. Their violence has grown over time. Given that the concert was for a class of music which would attract exactly the type of audience that would, in the majority, consist of so-named "deplorables", the point was raised that this killing event was yet another example of the hatred of the left directed against those for whom they have no tolerance. This "lone wolf" murderer would then appear to be merely an Antifa personality, acting on hate, acting against targets whom it is politically acceptable to hate. Consistent indeed.

On another note one understands that the Spanish Government has unleashed much mindless thuggery and violence against the Catalan people over recent days. The photos of elderly people being beaten to bloody mess by black uniformed, masked "police" are all extremely disturbing. Those elderly victims survived their ordeal fortunately. Meanwhile governments around the world have been issuing warnings to citizens not to go to Catalonia or, if they do go, not to attend rallies or outdoor events. So far one is unlikely to find such a warning pertaining to going to the USA or, if visiting, not attending music concerts or other outdoor events...

lets just be glad this guy was a moron and didnt realize that he owned 2 airplanes either of which filled with gasoline crashed into a crowd of 22,000 people would have killed and maimed far larger numbers of people. doesnt matter how many laws there are, or how many tools are banned these sicko nutbags will continue to cause harm.

These are two more imaginary conspiracies. One, just because the guy was a government employee, does not make him a mindless programmed robot. And two, there isn't a puppet master controlling the Antifa. Just look at the professional protesters: anarchists, deviants, hippies who look like they just rolled out of bed...and yet somehow tens of thousands of them can keep a secret about who they're working for.

People like to keep company with those who agree with them, and shun those who don't. As populous as the internet is, even the most wacked out nutjob can find a group of people who agree with him, and that group will kick out anyone who disagrees, and they will feed off each other. With negative feedback disabled, the sky's the limit for insanity.

Sorry Splitter, your original theory does not fit what we know about this guy. He was a career government sector worker. It is unlikely he would be a fan of anti-government conspiracy theories he happened to stumble across on the internet as you try to promote.

As far as your latest theories are concerned...yeah....right. It's all in your mind mate! You are making up nonsense to try to tear down. It's called arguing by straw man and it is dishonest to engage in it. Was it stated that the guy was a mindless programed robot because he was a government employee? Was it stated that there was a puppet master controlling the Antifa? Read what was actually written, try to comprehend the fundamental points being made, consider them and, if you must, respond to the points that were actually made. Address what was written, not what you'd wish would have been written.

And it turns out that the murderer was on a prescription psych drug after all. So far reports have admitted to one and it appears a doctor thought he was not altogether in his right mind.

I haven't been anywhere in a crowd that size in decades, but friends who attend Nascar races say there's fighter jets in the vicinity at all times. I "think" this is to prevent an airplane from flying/crashing into the crowd. If that's the case, at what point do they shoot the plane down, and where does the wreckage land.

If he's a liberal nutjob using a gun fits their narrative better, even if the loss of life, and injuries are less.

We'll never know what his motivation is. It's possible it wasn't political at all. "They" say he wasn't registered to vote. His father was a bank robber who was described as a psychopath. It could be he just wondered what it would be like to shoot a bunch of people, and decided too. The "explosives" he had was Tannerite. (ammonium nitrate and aluminum dust) Tannerite is sold (in small quanities) as "exploding targets. "They" said he had 50 pounds in his car. Perhaps the "rich guy" was originally going to take his car out in the desert and shoot it to make it explode, but the "psychopath" decided to shoot people instead. Again, we may never know his motivation. Heck "they" may never find out his true motivation.
I used to be a people person, but people ruined it.

No body cares about the whole thing and finding the truth. Lets just listen to the Gunment change religionists, give up everything, they will make it better. Well yeah they will have the armed security guards and no bridges to their homes they will have WALLS.

I dunno, I can’t find anyone who self-identifies as ‘teatard’ to divulge their philosophy...but there seems to be a lot of overlap between the far left and far right.
