No, that’s not the opening statement in a work of fiction. Unfortunately, it’s very, very real. The evil is real, and so was the act. But don’t count on the Leftist Media reporting any of this.
Before we explore the depravity of the El Paso shooter (no, I will not use his name because he wants his fame), let us be absolutely certain of where we stand. The act of random murder is one of the most evil acts possible. It demonstrates an utter disregard for God’s creation, and the price He paid on the Cross to redeem us from this vale of tears. It lacks even the motivation of a crime of passion or even of drug commerce, where the victim at least has some personal nexus with the perpetrator. In short, it is pure evil.
But “evil” requires the presence of a moral law. There must be absolute “good” for “evil” to exist. Decades ago the humanist movement brought moral relativism to the modern world. Post-modernism morphed that into the idea that there is no such thing as “absolute truth.” It seems that they are absolutely certain of this assertion. But that logical contradiction creates an inability to have any firm standards for anything, even the protection of life. After all, is life real? Is it valuable? Must it be protected? Your “truth” and mine are “different,” so I can kill a baby after it’s born, and you can’t say anything about it. After all, you might injure my fragile feelings.
Numerous Democrats have made various condemnations of the El Paso shooting, but to my knowledge, the word “evil” hasn’t made it into their lexicon, because their basic outlook cannot allow evil to exist. The Progressive Marxist approach denies God, the moral law-giver, and therefore cannot admit the existence of moral law.
Returning to the perpetrator, there is much we know about him. First, he was a Democrat, at least in name. His MyLife page had this profile at 2:46 PM. Since the shooting happened at about 10:00 AM and he was in custody, this profile is almost certainly correct, as we will shortly see. (Hat tip to thegatewaypundit.com)
Four minutes later (2:50 PM), the automated features in MyLife updated the perp’s profile. Remember, at this point, he was in police custody with no access to the internet.
Did you catch that? As soon as the shooter’s name became known, someone out there with a specific purpose changed his online information so that a Democrat became a Republican. Two minutes later (2:52 PM) he became a QAnon member and NRA supporter.
Within 5 minutes, the shooter had morphed from a Democrat into the most bizarre caricature of a conservative Republican, all while he was isolated from the internet. NBC News posted his name at 1:43 PM, so it took about an hour for Leftist trolls to get up to speed and scrub the profile. By Saturday night he was “Zionist” and a “Jew.” His political affiliation had somehow found its way back to Democrat.
Twitter unpublished his page, but not before conservatives were able to identify it and copy this photo.
The Twitterverse seems to be claiming that this indicates his support for Donald Trump, but a close examination of his manifesto shows exactly the opposite. His manifesto is quite clear.
“In the near future, America will have to initiate a basic universal income to prevent widespread poverty and civil unrest as people lose their jobs (to automation). Joblessness is in itself a source of civil unrest. The less dependents on a government welfare system, the lower the unemployment rate, the better. Achieving ambitious social projects like universal healthcare and UBI would become far more likely to succeed if tens of millions of defendants are removed.”
This is pure socialism and eugenics. While it is tempting to use his germanic surname to point to Hitlerian philosophy, that is not necessary. Removing undesirables was central to Hitler’s “Final Solution.” And “Nazi” is a contraction of “National SOCIALISM,” Hitler’s economics. Noting that…
…”our lifestyle is destroying the environment of our country. The decimation of the environment is creating a massive burden for future generations. Corporations are heading the destruction of our environment by shamelessly overharvesting resources”
…he aligns himself with the radical environmentalist Left.
The shooter traces his motivations to the Christchurch shooter’s manifesto and Renaud Camus’ book, The Great Replacement. But while Camus dissociated himself from racial purity movements, the shooter took the book as a call to purify America along racial lines. His manifesto decries the Democrat move to fill America with Hispanics beholden to Democrats. At the same time, “the Republican Party is also terrible.” The shooter segues into a poorly informed rant on a host of “ills,” leading to the conclusion that “If we can get rid of enough people, then our way of life can become more sustainable.” In other words, “death equals life.”
His choice of target tells us something that the NRA has made very clear for decades. Bad guys hate going up against armed opponents.
“Remember: it is not cowardly to pick low hanging fruit. AKA Don’t attack heavily guarded areas to fulfill your super soldier COD fantasy. Attack low security targets. Even though you might out gun a security guard or police man, they likely beat you in armor, training and numbers. Do not throw away your life on an unnecessarily dangerous target. If a target seems too hot, live to fight another day.”
He even seemed to understand the Media better than the Media understand themselves.
“some people will blame the President or certain presidential candidates for the attack. This is not the case. I know the media will probably call me a white supremacist anyway and blame Trump’s rhetoric. The media is infamous for fake news. Their reaction to this attack will likely just confirm that.”
It’s far too easy for us to divide America into two warring camps. Many in politics and the media are very happy to do just that when the truth is far more nuanced and diverse. The El Paso shooter was consumed by an evil that is beyond comprehension. But it was not located anywhere on the Left/Right spectrum. It is far more confused than that.
We know he is a racist. That much seems unavoidable. We know his economics are confused, but lean to the Marxist side like today’s Democrats. Ultimately his views are likely to have developed from a cry for absolutes in a world where absolutes are denied. As Nietzsche predicted, such nihilism creates an apocalyptic tenor of gloom, resulting in anxiety, anger, and terror.
As long as man looks to man for solutions, there will be none. Jack Posobiec puts it this way, “Progressivism is postmodernists trying to escape nihilism.”
