PRELIMINARY REPORT: Dayton, Ohio Shooter ID’d as Leftist

The young man who mowed down 21 people in an El Paso Walmart, wrote a hate-filled manifesto posted online moments before his rampage.

The rambling statement contained rampant anti-immigrant and racist language, highlighting a growing concern over white supremacy terrorism, perhaps not seen since the days after 1995’s Oklahoma City bombing.

Terrorism, whether inspired by a medieval interpretation of the Quran or racism, is equally repugnant.

However, one angle in the aftermath of this weekend’s mass shootings is missing in virtually all reports. The gunman in Dayton, Ohio – who killed nine people in less than 45 seconds – was a leftist, dismayed by the outcome of the 2016 presidential election. (Heavy.com)
 

Connor Betts, the Dayton, Ohio mass shooter, was a self-described “leftist,” who wrote that he would happily vote for Democrat Elizabeth Warren, praised Satan, was upset about the 2016 presidential election results, and added, “I want socialism, and i’ll not wait for the idiots to finally come round to understanding.”

Betts’ Twitter profile read, “he/him / anime fan / metalhead / leftist / i’m going to hell and i’m not coming back.” One tweet on his page read, “Off to Midnight Mass. At least the songs are good. #athiestsonchristmas.” The page handle? I am the spookster. On one selfie, he included the hashtags, “#selfie4satan #HailSatan @SatanTweeting.” On the date of Republican Sen. John McCain’s death, he wrote, “F*ck John McCain.” He also liked tweets referencing the El Paso mass shooting in the hours before Dayton.

Twitter has now suspended the Twitter page, removing it. It was up for several hours after the mass shooting.

“This is America: Guns on every corner, guns in every house, no freedom but that to kill,” he wrote in December 2018. And, “’Tis! The pistol is a Beretta 93R, called the REK7 in BO4. Do love me some guns!” He also wrote, “Hammer, brick, gun.” On Feb. 14, 2018, he tweeted this at Sen. Rob Portman: “@robportman hey rob. How much did they pay you to look the other way? 17 kids are dead. If not now, when?” That was the date of the mass shooting at a school in Parkland, Florida.
