Editor’s Note: This report has not been independently corroborated, but the source, Big League Politics, has a history of breaking similar stories that turned out to be true.
A new report about alleged Dayton mass shooter Connor Betts indicates he was a registered Democrat who voted in two Democratic primaries, reversing the common mainstream media narrative that the recent wave of mass shootings were being perpetrated exclusively by Republicans. This narrative had already been partially debunked as yesterday’s alleged El Paso shooter, Patrick Crusius, had been critical of the GOP as well as Democrats.
If it turns out to be accurate, this report will also counteract the other big narrative from today, that white supremacy is driving these shooters. It was clear the Crusius was a racist based on the manifesto he published prior to his attack in El Paso yesterday, but no motive has been established for Betts’ at this point. Nonetheless, progressives are already painting it as another example of white supremacy because most of the nine people he shot, which included his sister, were minorities.
There’s a trend that’s being noticed by some regarding young white males and mass shootings. By including the Gilroy shooting last week, we see a picture of three young, aloof men with an apparent disdain for society and access to firearms. But political ideology does not appear to be a contributing factor in this trend, especially if Betts is, indeed, a Democrat.
According to BLC:
The Greene County Board of Elections reveals Betts began voting in 2012, and next voted in the Democratic Party Ohio Primary on March 15 of 2016. After voting in the 2016 General Election, Betts later voted in the 2018 Democratic Party Primary on May 8, 2018. Betts voted in a total of 7 elections, including Democratic Primaries.
After finding this information, Big League Politics cross referenced the data with other publicly available information from the Ohio Secretary of State, which confirms his address, polling location, and other voter information.
As our EIC noted earlier, we have a problem with guns that cannot be solved by removing them. If anything, we need looser gun laws in order to dissuade mass shooters or stop them when they start.
The mental illness that drives people to commit mass murder is not exclusive to one political ideology or the other. We must stop labeling mass shooters based on false narratives and address the issue with logic and facts.
We are currently forming the American Conservative Movement. If you are interested in learning more, we will be sending out information in a few weeks.

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We just launched a new GiveSendGo page. We also have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
