I'm waiting for the alt-right to weigh-in:

9/11 Truthers: It was a false flag attack.

Sandy Hook Truthers: The attack didn't take place.

Trump Supporters: Obama. Muslims. Transgender bathroom access.


I'm not sure which theory the right wing nut jobs will espouse, I'll just wait for the Megyn Kelly interview.

Man, this is bad. I mean it's bad enough on it's own, but now you have a President that instead of calling for peace and trying to calm the nation, will probably ignite this into a left vs. Trump war. His comments should certainly be interesting...

I only caught the last 10 seconds of Trump's statement, it sounded good. Surprisingly.

The thing about nurturing an environment of hatred and paranoia and mistrust is that you really can't control where that goes or where it ends up.

Not really shocked it has come to this. The political environment is pretty toxic on both sides.

Really? He read from a teleprompter. Ended with something like "God bless them, God bless you and God bless America".

i think it was terrorism.. not by muslims.. this was a white dude who was a bernie supporter.. even volunteered on his campaign.. He was a huge trump hater.. basically a militant alt-left liberal.

Bernie condemned the attack..

That was the original intent, geared to arm a militia. It's since been bastardized by gun enthusiast and the NRA.

Of course. Not in this Roger Ailes era. Same exact crime is labeled either terrorism, thug life, or lone wolf / mental health depending on the background of the preptraror.

This. Is there a more bastardized amendment / law than #2?!

I know #13 had an enormous ulterior motive when it was written, but many have at least admitted to this.

Man, I'm somewhat new to the states, lived in Puerto Rico my entire life and now I'm doing my grad studies here. I work with a couple of Muslim grad students as well. Just find it so odd that when it's an ISIS attack, it's terrorism. When it's a white guy, no one uses that word. When it's a Hispanic dude running people over in Times Square, no one uses that word.

Sorry for the rant. Such a tragic thing today. (bleep) like this shouldn't happen.

One of these days, I'd like them to explain what "tyrannical" means. Who decides that a government is tyrannical? An individual? A group? If yes, how big should the group be? Are all governmental employees guilty at that point? Can one kill as many people as one would like? ... Rand Paul needs to explain.

Rand Paul is a feaux Libertarian. Libertarians believe the Federal Government on its face is tyrannical. Of course, Mr. Paul is drawing the good gubmint check, that good gubmint healthcare, AND that good gubmint pension while simultaneously speaking on the evils of the gubmint. His daddy Ron Paul is a feaux Libertarian lifetime gubmint teet sucker too, but whatever...
