11 Dead, Several Others Shot At Pittsburgh Synagogue
Eleven people have been killed and a number of others injured after a shooting at The Tree of Life Synagogue in Squirrel Hill on Saturday.
KDKA sources confirm Sheehan that the suspect is 48-year-old Robert Bowers. It is believed that he acted alone.
President Donald Trump called the shooting a ‚Äúterrible thing‚ÄĚ and said ‚Äúit‚Äôs a shame to watch.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúIt‚Äôs a terrible terrible thing what‚Äôs going on with hate in our country, and frankly all over the world and something has be done,‚ÄĚ Trump said. ‚ÄúIt‚Äôs just a shame to watch this and to see it for so many years, so much of it, it‚Äôs a shame.‚ÄĚ...
Hey Jim, what color are the Jews who attend that synagogue? What color is Benjamin Netanyahu? What color was Golda Meir? Albert Einstein? How about Ruth Bader Ginsburg? Michael Bloomberg? Steven Spielberg? Ben Shapiro?
You need a new horse, Jim. The one you ride is ready for the glue factory.

According to the organization, which fights anti-Semitism and other forms of bigotry, white supremacists represent the biggest danger in the U.S. At least 12 of them have been arrested and accused of having a role¬† in plots, attacks or threats against the Jewish community over the last year.

Really...things just happened that quickly, or did the last year or two of OBama's reign of terror have something to do with it? Seems to me that he incited a new era of racial hatred, and split the divide wide open by his slanted rhetoric, and also, his silence. I don't remember him ever condemning killer thugs, talking about whites being murdered, or setting anyone straight when anyone hurt or killed by a white was labelled as a hate crime. I don't remember him condemning the Black Panthers putting hits out on whites, Louis Farrakhan calling for the murder of all white devils, Sharpton and Jackson inciting racial violence, speaking out against the hate rappers; calling for the murder of white cops, or even condemning the ambush and murder of white cops.
Sure, these are black and white examples, but the point is that the hatred spread far and wide to any and all, so to say that Trump was the catalyst, and that this is all something unheard of prior to the last two years, is just ridiculous.

From the linked article:
"The president did not tell a deranged man to send pipe bombs to the people he regularly lambastes on Twitter and lampoons in his rallies, so he‚Äôs not at fault. Trump didn‚Äôt cause another deranged man to tweet that the caravan of refugees moving toward America‚Äôs southern border (the one Trump has complained about endlessly) is paid for by the Jews before he shot up a synagogue. Trump certainly never told him, ‚ÄúGo kill some Jews on a rainy Shabbat morning.‚ÄĚ
But this definition of culpability is too narrow, too legalistic ‚ÄĒ and ultimately too dishonest. The pipe-bomb makers and synagogue shooters and racists who mowed a woman down in Charlottesville were never even looking for Trump‚Äôs explicit blessing, because they knew the president had allowed bigots like them to go about their business, secure in the knowledge that, like Nemtsov‚Äôs killers, they don‚Äôt really bother the president, at least not too much. His role is just to set the tone. Their role is to do the rest."
Thanks, Jim, for helping us understand how the twisted logic of the liberal mind works.

Trump's past behavior has encouraged anti-semitism. This young lady writer has gotten death threats because of some of her articles ‚ĚóūüĎé

Now the above was just a bland example of what this woman had to say. She gave excellent examples from her family's history of anti-semitism affecting them.
During hard times like this I would encourage people to use your church for encouragement, and becareful not vent or pour out your heart on some message board, to prevent future regrets of writing something stupid. We need God's help to help us.
Yeah, I caught their meeting with the press shortly after this crime occurred. Tragic and nonsensical. Another heinous crime based upon nothing more than hatred. For the record, this man hates Trump, and that's from the same official sources and his own Facebook page. I'm only mentioning it because of the second half of a comment that was very wisely deleted earlier.
I do have to wonder how I would have been received, if following the Ferguson, MO, etc., riots, and cops were being hunted down and ambushed...murdered, if I would have said, ...another case of black degenerates killing cops. The need to mention skin color is the issue...
