Cool heads needed as political fringe dwellers spread disinformation after Trump shooting


Cool heads needed as political fringe dwellers spread disinformation after Trump shooting

Partisans on the left and the right are weaponizing the attack and spreading lies faster than journalists can offer facts to counter them

Disinformation researcher Amanda Rogers has described the polarized, unhinged, conspiracy-driven noise in social media responses to the shooting of Donald Trump as “a self-sustaining spiral of shit”.

Rogers, a fellow at the progressive thinktank Century Foundation, has seen this before. But the scale is new and troubling, she said. Conversation on social media – and the mainstream media – is focused on the motivations of the shooter and the impact on the election, she said. Bad actors want to turn a moment like this into a broader call for violence. And they will spread lies to get there, she said.

“The fact that this is the perfect storm environment for dis-info from every single point on the political spectrum, is something that worries me immensely,” Rogers said. “Because it’s an accelerationist’s wet dream … But we need to have voices in the media that are speaking to the fact that this is a breaking situation. People need to calm down about speculation.”

Accelerationists are those on the political fringes – right and left – who want a civil war to burn the country to ash so they can start anew from the rubble. Notably, the term “Civil War” began trending in the wake of the Trump shooting.

>said mean things

no they just glorified and gave reasoned justifications for an attempted political assassination
>I'm a very disrespectful person who likes to spend hours talking to people I view as dirt for entertainment
Well okay then. If this is what makes you happy Anon, then continue to spend your one life on Earth doing this
Cheers, m8.
It was a liberal who donated to democrats with ActBlue on Biden's inauguration, this election would have been his first and he likely registered Republican just to not vote for Trump. Get your facts straight chud.
>And there will be people who will vote Democrat.
and those people should have their social media investigated and if they have any anti trump sentiments should be arrested for being domestic terrorists and butchered.

Trump rally shooter identified as Thomas Matthew Crooks, 20-year-old Pennsylvania man. Here's what we know so far.
By Nicole Sganga, Allison Elyse Gualtieri, Pat Milton

Updated on: July 14, 2024 / 5:05 PM EDT / CBS News


Who was the shooter?
In a statement, the FBI said:

"The FBI has identified Thomas Matthew Crooks, 20, of Bethel Park, Pennsylvania, as the subject involved in the assassination attempt of former President Donald Trump on July 13, in Butler, Pennsylvania. This remains an active and ongoing investigation, and anyone with information that may assist with the investigation is encouraged to submit photos or videos online at FBI.gov/butler or call 1-800-CALL-FBI."

Federal investigators said the gunman was not carrying identification, so they analyzed his DNA to provide a biometric confirmation of his identity.

Crooks was from Bethel Park, Pennsylvania, a Pittsburgh suburb about an hour south of Butler. The town in Allegheny County is home to about 30,000 people and has one high school with about 1,300 students.

House LGBTQ+ Equality Caucus calls for action after murder of transgender teen


HARRISBURG, Pa.–– After the murder of a 14-year-old transgender individual in Mercer County, members of the PA House LGBTQ+ Equality Caucus released the following statement:

“We mourn the death of Pauly Likens and refuse to stand idly by while LGBTQ+ Pennsylvanians are targeted because of who they are. It’s unacceptable that current hate crime laws in our commonwealth are not applied to crimes motivated by a victim’s sexual orientation or gender identity.

“As incidents of violent hate crimes continue to rise across the nation, we urge our colleagues in the state Senate to pass H.B. 1027 and send it to the governor’s desk. It’s far past time to update Pennsylvania’s hate crime statute so that charges may reflect the especially heinous nature of hate-based violence.”

Sponsored by state Reps. Dan Frankel and Napoleon Nelson, H.B. 1027 would amend PA’s Ethnic Intimidation Statute to ensure protections for victims targeted because of their race, color, religion, national origin, ethnicity, ancestry, sex, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, age, and disability, including autism. The bill would also provide victims with a civil cause of action against offenders.

The state House passed the legislation on a bipartisan vote in October of 2023, but it has yet to be considered by the state Senate’s Judiciary Committee.

“Not only has a light gone out with the loss of Pauly Likens, but the LGBTQ+ communities across our commonwealth are shaken and fearful,” Frankel (D-Allegheny) said. “The federal government and dozens of other states have acknowledged that these groups are targets for hate crimes, and they’ve provided tools to law enforcement accordingly. Who are we as a commonwealth if we refuse to protect vulnerable people?”

false flag operation if i ever saw one. can't call it a hate crime when it's one of their own.
100% of LGBTQs are chomos.
To be honest, that's not fair at all.
However, 100% of chomos are LGBTQ.
If you kill a tranny your sentence should be reduced to 59% the sentence for killing a person, since there is a 41% chance the troon would have killed itself anyway
But there shouldn't be any punishment for killing a person so mentally perverted, sexually perverted and inhuman they believe, wrongly, they can be the opposite sex.

First off, everyone has ARs because they are cheap. they shoot the cheapest rifle ammo, .223 and they are in general cheaper than any rifle other than very basic bitch hunting bolt action rifles. The shooter used irons allegedly. I've used irons in NRA high power. the aiming point of the target at 200 is about the size of a human torso (19 inch circle, acog bdc is based on 19 inches at certain distances). IMO the biggest issue would be if the gun wasn't zeroed or if he was trying to aim for the head or something weird. I do a 6 o'clock hold on my target rifles which only really works if I know the size of the thing I am shooting. aiming for the head with irons would suck because no magnification, head small and irons take up a lot of your field of view.
oh and the shooter was confirmed jewish.

Local Man almost ruins the plan.


“Probably five to seven minutes of Trump speaking… we noticed a guy crawling – bear crawling – up the roof of the building beside us, fifty feet away from us,” the man said.

The man continued:

We’re standing there, we’re pointing at the guy crawling up the roof. He had a rifle. We could clearly see him with a rifle. Absolutely. umm, we’re pointing at him. The police are down there, running around on the ground and we’re like, “Hey, man. There’s a guy on the roof with a rifle.” And the police were like, “Huh, what?” They didn’t know what was going on.

The man said he repeatedly warned officers that he believed Trump was in danger but his warnings went unheard.

Everyone point and laugh at this soylib pretending to act normal like he doesn't want Trump dead all of the sudden.

After former President Donald Trump was bloodied and escorted offstage by Secret Service following an incident at his Pennsylvania rally Saturday, the Florida political world took to social media to offer the former president their well wishes and condemn what looked to be political violence.

Details around the incident were not immediately forthcoming. A spokesperson for the Secret Service said in a statement that Trump was safe, and it would release more information when it became available.

“This was clearly an assassination attempt on President Trump,” said U.S. Sen. Rick Scott. “There is ZERO tolerance for violence. I hope this monster is already caught and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.” Pictures of a defiant Trump, holding a fist high, quickly began to circulate on social media.

How do you know?
I'll bet you 50 bucks right now he isn't.
So Trump now has an ear piercing. Does that make him gay?
Depends. Which one's the gay ear in 2024?
Pretty sure it's always been the left ear and I know Trump was shot in the right ear, because the shooter was way too far left.

Law enforcement authorities have identified the man who made an assassination attempt on former President Donald Trump at a rally in Pennsylvania on Saturday.

The FBI said the shooter, who is dead, was identified as 20-year-old Thomas Matthew Crooks of Bethel Park, Pennsylvania. A motive was not clear.

The gunman was immediately “neutralized” by the Secret Service, chief of communications Anthony Guglielmi said.

Bethel Park is a predominantly white, relatively well-to-do city in the southern reaches of greater Pittsburgh. The site of the rally, Butler, is about an hour’s drive north of Pittsburgh.

Pennsylvania voter records listed a Thomas Matthew Crooks with the same address and birth date as a registered Republican, though it was not clear from the records when that was put in place.

At a news conference Saturday night, law enforcement said the investigation was close to making a positive identification of the shooter, who did not have identification on him, state police Lt. Col. George Bivens said.

"The shooter has been tentatively identified," he said. "It’s a matter of doing biometric confirmations."

Yup, a real red blooded American would've made that shot from a mile blindfolded.
Your comparison is unfair. Caesar was a brilliant general who put the safety of his troops first, and was still hugely successful on the battlefield. He spent a lifetime working to improve the lives of all Romans, and his record bore this out time and time again. That crump guy, not so much.
hitler brought a crippled doomed economy out of a massive depression then rebuilt germany into a global superpower and threatened the other countries into cancelling their debt payments. yet you're so fast to compare trump to him so is he one of the goats or not.
I'm not sure what you are saying. Its a bit unintelligible, but I can't help but notice that your list of Hitler's accomplishments doesn't mention the fact that the well-being of German citizens was irrelevant to his agenda. What does it matter whether or not your nation is considered a "superpower" if most of your citizens gain nothing from it? What Hitler did for his people was to send able-bodied men off to to starve and die in poorly-conceived military escapades. How many German citizens had to suffer and die because of Hitler's incompetence? At least Hitler previously served in the German military, indicating a degree of social responsibly. When offered the chance to serve his country in a meaningful way, crump ran and hid.

Ironically, the shooter was apparently wearing a Demolition Ranch shirt (popular guntube channel)
They've got a point but for the wrong reason. Homie was trying to JFK him when he would've had a better chance aiming for the chest.

I wouldn't worry. Nobody will assassinate Biden, because Joe is clearly senile and not in control of anything.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A New Mexico judge dismissed the involuntary manslaughter case against Alec Baldwin over the fatal shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins in a sudden move Friday.

Judge Mary Marlowe Sommer dismissed the case based on the misconduct of police and prosecutors over the withholding of evidence from the defense. She said the case cannot be filed again.

Baldwin, the lead actor and co-producer of the film “Rust,” was pointing a gun at Hutchins during a rehearsal on the set outside Santa Fe in October 2021 when the gun went off, killing her and wounding director Joel Souza. Baldwin has said he pulled back the hammer — but not the trigger — and the gun fired.

He and other producers still face civil lawsuits from Hutchins’ parents and sister, which white collar defense attorney Mark Sedlander told The Associated Press are more common for workplace accidents like the fatal shooting.

“By civil law standards, it is common for someone like Mr. Baldwin to be held responsible for what happened, but it is relatively unusual in the criminal context,” Sedlander said in an interview before the case was dismissed.

>Rehearsing by mock shooting at people that weren't part of the cast?
He fired at the fucking camera crew while rehearsing for a scene where he would shoot towards the camera. Yes. Fucking idiot.
You still killed that woman Mr. Baldwin
The armorer wasn't present and Baldwin himself was shooting live rounds out of the same pistol. If the armorer gives you the weapon and says it is good to go, you can blame the armorer. If you've been in possession of the live pistol all day, you're responsible for what's in it.

It only takes a moment to empty the cylinder and verify the rounds loaded aren't live.
>It only takes a moment to empty the cylinder and verify the rounds loaded aren't live.
The only difference between the dummy and live rounds was a difference in color for a dot on the back of the rounds (silver vs gold) and Baldwin wouldn't have even known what real rounds for the gun would have looked like because THEY WEREN'T SUPPOSED TO BE ON THE SET.

>Baldwin himself was shooting live rounds out of the same pistol
This is actually just a lie. Other crewmembers were shooting live rounds on the set, but there's never been any evidence presented that Baldwin was involved in or even made aware of this. If you hadn't been lying here, you would have had a point, but you are a lying liar that lies.
the armorer got charged, he didn't load the rounds he had a gun handed to him after being told it was cold.
I hate alec Baldwin and think he's a twat for that pathetic interview post incident where he pretended to be crying. But if i had to distribute the blame it'd be 15%him 50% armorer and 35% seth kenny(guy who brought the ammunition and hired her)

Elon Musk has reportedly donated to America PAC, a super political action committee working to elect former President Trump.

Bloomberg, citing sources familiar with the donations, said that the SpaceX and Tesla CEO donated an undisclosed amount of money to the pro-Trump PAC.

The PAC is next required to disclose its list of donors on July 17, the outlet noted.

Musk has not publicly endorsed a candidate for the 2024 race, but has increasingly weighed in on politics on X.

In the months leading up to the election, Musk scorched President Biden on X for his immigration policies and unambiguously sided with conservatives.

In September, he visited the U.S.-Mexico border at Eagle Pass, Texas, declaring the "situation is beyond insane and growing fast."

He has also criticized the Biden administration following the brutal killing of Augusta University nursing student Laken Riley in Athens, Georgia by an illegal migrant.

A new NPR/PBS News/Marist Poll put President Joe Biden two points ahead of former President Donald Trump two weeks after his debate performance called his mental fitness into question.

The poll, published on Friday, asked registered voters across the country — “including leaners” — whom they would vote for if the presidential election was held today. Fifty percent of those polled said they would vote for Biden, 48 percent said they would vote for Trump. The margin of error in the poll was 3.3 percentage points, making the numbers basically split down the middle. Marist noted that their poll one month ago, conducted before the presidential debate, had each candidate at 49 percent.

If a third party candidate was introduced, both candidates polled slightly lower — Trump at 43 percent, Biden at 42 percent, independent candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. at 8 percent, Cornel West at 3 percent, Jill Stein at 2 percent, and Chase Oliver at less than one percent. The race remained a statistical tie.

Both Trump and Biden had trouble with unfavorable numbers, with Trump’s numbers a bit higher — among voters who had unfavorable views of both candidates, Trump was seen as more unfavorable by four points (47 percent) over Biden (43 percent). That number is an improvement for Trump over last month’s pre-debate poll, which had Trump more unfavorable by 7 points.

Biden just had a virtual meeting with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (composed of 38 house democrats) and he showed up an hour late. They told Biden "Vete de aqui, puta pinche" and blew Biden the fuck out. The host panicked and scrambled to end the meeting immediately.

House Dem tells Biden directly: Time for someone else to lead
It happened during a virtual meeting between the president and the political arm of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, and the host ended it shortly after

A House Democrat who has called for Joe Biden to step aside confronted the president directly on a virtual meeting Friday, telling him it was time for someone else to lead, according to two people familiar with the matter.

The host of the meeting — between the Congressional Hispanic Caucus' political arm and Biden — ended it shortly after Rep. Mike Levin's (D-Calif.) comment. Biden responded to Levin, according to a member on the call, by reiterating that he is running. The president held meetings with various factions of House Democrats anxious about his future on the ticket on Friday and has more planned over the weekend.

Shortly after the meeting wrapped up, Levin, who hails from a purple district, put out a statement calling on Biden to end his reelection campaign.

Several others in that group, however, are among Biden’s more vocal proponents on the Hill. Rep. Sylvia Garcia (D-Texas) and Rep. Lou Correa (D-Calif.) appeared to be "pre-selected" to ask questions, according to a person familiar with the call.

“He sounded very lucid, sharp, engaged,” said another pro-Biden Democrat who attended the meeting, who declined to speak about members’ private comments.

Harris has executive branch experience and appeals to a broader demographic by being a Blasian woman, but has quite a reputation of having an unlikeable personality.
I think Whitmer might be decent. Also appeals to a broader demographic by being a woman. Seems like she has a pretty likeable personality (I guess compared to Harris). Can also garner sympathy votes from when those right-wingers plotted to kidnap and assassinate her.
Harris has never given an impression that she's in charge of anything.
>Whitmer/Kamala has broad appeal because vagina
Is this seriously how democrats think?
>because vagina
thats why its called "broad" appeal
