A synagogue was shot up today

Also, the Magabomber insanity during the week

At this rate the country is going to fucking lose it come election day.

Wonder if maybe Trump advocating political violence and Republicans at large palling around with and appealing to anti-semites is at all related to this stuff. Really makes you think

The things that it really makes you think specifically are "the Republican party is a party of insane neofascists" and "they are one hundred percent culpable for this and they have blood on their hands"

Republicans are terrorists. If you continue to support this party in 2018, you are supporting terrorism.

Trump is one of those people who just appeals to every typical backwards-society supportive person. He's just a demented old man who acts like a 5 year old and doesn't know what it means to be a bloody fascist... :/

The scariest thing about the synagogue shooting is that I actually lived in the Squirrel Hill community for about 2 months last summer, so this tragedy hit way too close to home for comfort. I actually passed by this synagogue on my way to the Indie gamedev job during the morning commute, and a few friends of mine are members of the JCCPGH for recreation. Another friend of mine was in the area the day before ; fortunately, she was not there the day of the tragedy.

Overall, it's a sad, senseless act of violence, and my heart goes out to the congregation, to the locals, and to everyone involved. I've visited the other Jewish synagogue on Forbes Ave. (and other houses of worship, from many religions and denominations) in Pittsburgh during the Annual 10 Commandment Hikes back in my Scouting days, and the members of the local Jewish community are friendly, welcoming, and wouldn't hurt a fly. I am a very religiously tolerant, open-minded person. But then comes pres. Rump, spewing his rhetoric of hate, division, and discord amongst us, setting the crazier people off, and leading to such tragedies.

And of course, Rump goes to the funeral against the wishes of the grieving Jewish community, the victims, even the Pittsburgh mayor, and earns himself a well deserved protest in the process .
