Trump’s army of mindless killers strikes again. Using the exact language of Trump’s various speeches minutes before the shooting that claimed the lives of at least 22 people in El Paso, Texas, the gunman, Patrick Wood Crusius, posted a lengthy and hateful diatribe to 8chan. The post described an “invasion” of Hispanics at the southern U.S. border and an effort to “reclaim” the United States.

He murdered 22 people before being stopped by law enforcement. Still, the NRA, Trump and the entire right-wing conservative population of America refuse support for minimal gun laws and in Trump’s case actually promote mass, mindless murders like El Paso or the Garlic Fest horror. Trump’s vision of Make America Great Again is an ongoing, bloody nightmare from which we may never awaken.
