  10. This must stop: definitely the hate, racism, division, lies, fearmongering and complete irresponsibly of this sociopath we unfortunately have as President.

    I do not believe that even all remaining Republicans (even with all the good people who have left the party recently) are bad, but the time has long past for them to break their silence.

    Trump's supporters are not ALL racist so we most stop OUR hate of them. We must double down on our efforts to somehow reach them–those of them that are truly reachable. ❤️

  14. REPLACE DONALD TRUMP and REPUBLICANS! ~ FOX NEWS AND DONALD TRUMP GET OFF ON STOKING FEAR IN THE HEARTS OF THEIR RACIST XENOPHOBE VIEWERS and VOTERS! ~ PROMOTING RAGE AND VIOLENCE! ~ This time Donald Trump is right! We are going to "REPLACE" him with a better president! ~ A lot of good people are not understanding the nature of Republicans, White Nationalist and White Supremacist? Wow, so innocent. Here is the ugly truth. They have no shame, very much the same as Republicans and Donald Trump! Because of all the love, civil order and good opposing them, they resort to ruthless and shameless acts of disorder, violence and untruths (yes, they invented fake news, and then believe their own fake news)! They see this as their strength and a necessary evil. These xenophobic and evil extremist that Donald Trump has sided with against American ideals and our way of life today, are the ones that invented speak like "necessary evil". These are dangerous, ugly and uncompromising people, they don't care to understand you, they just want to destroy you and take what they want. They choose to fill themselves with hate and then want somebody to blame for having it. Pretty much the way Donald Trump approaches problem solving. Donald Trump does not know how to discuss matters and be a constructive problem solver, he resorts to destruction first, remove, block, deny and replaces with what he wants, regardless of who gets hurt or loses. Donald Trump is not a president, he is a tyrant and a dictator, Donald Trump is America's public enemy #1. ~ KEEP ON VOTING BLUE, IT'S OUR POWER AND STAND AGAINST FASCIST TYRANNY AND HATE! ~ REPLACE TRUMP ~ VOTE BLUE IN 2020! ~ I VOTE FOR "BETO, P. (his Can do and Sincerity)" & "MARRIANE, V.P. (her Love and Intelligence)" FOR 2020

  17. It;s media folk like immoral Melber who is contributing the most to normalizing hate by working overtime to condition people into mechanically associating white males with racism, a fictitious desire to bring back slavery etc. Melber has always delighted in creating friction, hatred, fear, but he's sly enough to condition people into projecting it on to their foes. As for normalization, who will not admit that the media has normalized crime in America. Just look at the comments people write when someone dares to point out that several times more people are killed in crime sprees in Chicago annually than by anyone even smelling of right extremism. Their response is: but crime is normal for cities! Never mind that the cities of Europe experience much, much less crime.

  22. 😳😳😳😳😳Trump has exposed the nasty under belly of American Democracy which is a racist White Nationalist Nation. Democracy was supposed to be only for the white man and his. Racist laws and legislation has always kept people of color back from living in a true democracy. The Civil rights movement was co- opted from Black Americans in favor of more favorable immigrant groups like Hispanics, Asians and so on. This country was built, wars fought on the back of Black Americans and immigrants. These spree killings, opioid addictions, one side economy has one prevailing theme, it is predominately involving whites. The sad part they don't seem to want to deal with the problem realistically. 🤕🤕🤕🤕😤😤😤😤😢😢😢😢

  26. I’m sure Trump will go on a rant on twitter once he hears this. I’ve seen comments of people saying “oh well Obama had more mass shootings during his administration” as if it was something to be happy about. This has been going on in America for a long time.Also Trump has only served 2 yrs Obama had 8yrs. For the past two yrs seems like every other month there’s a shooting and Trump’s reactions are appalling he always comes off as not genuine and usually will add fuel to the fire with insensitive behavior or responses. His hate spread is something that’s been invigorating separation, violence and racism in some people. I miss Obama and im not even american nor do i live there 🤷🏾‍♀️

  27. I’m tired y’all 😔 i’m tired of being scared to live my life because every day these people are going into normal ordinary places and shooting everybody. I’m tired of being scared of the future, for myself, for my kids….it’s not just the racism, the violence…..we just don’t care about each other any more. Quicker to talk down to someone then to lend a hand to help them. Quicker to comment negative things than to teach the ignorant. Shooting old people and babies….wtf is wrong with us?? I’m tired….I’m just so tired….

  33. Obama was the most divisive president we’ve ever had. There were more mass shootings under Obama than the previous 4 presidents combined! He holds the record. And nothing but silence from the leftist media then. Such hypocrisy. Obama encouraged division and racism. How about reporting on the Dayton shooter? He was an avowed leftist. A supporter of E. Warren, socialism and open borders. Why not mention all of that? Bunch of hypocrites!!

  34. I live near El Paso. My step father is Hispanic. My bf is Asian. I could never be more diverse. I am not racist but when I go out, Hispanic people stare at me now. Some have made comments “loco” in my direction already. I am being judged because of my color and all the media declaring all this white supremacy as if all white people hate other races. When will politicians and news casters declare that NOT ALL WHITE PEOPLE ARE RACIST!? Not once have I heard it. Now I am scared to go outside or let my child play outside without me. I’m scared to shop. I’m scared there will be retaliation against all white people. We are not all racist. Please don’t assume this. My son cries because he wants everyone to get along instead of hating each other. When are people going to stop acting like children and just respect one another?

  35. Most behavior has a cause and effect

    Poverty and oppression causes violence(gangs)

    What is the cause? No one is oppressing these men. White men are violent without cause and no one is addressing this pathology. It is being deliberately ignored.

    THEY WILL NEVER DO ANYTHING ABOUT THIS BECAUSE THEY WILL NOT CONDEMN WHITE MALE BEHAVIOR.

  38. Obama deported 3M immigrants and when this deranged young man sees his hero treat these immigrants as unwelcome guests he goes out and does a dasterdly deed like this. Obama needs to apolgize for his mass deportations and tell the nation they are not evil people to keep the crazies from doing this again! This blood is on Obama's hands! As far as the Liz Warren supporting crazy Dayton shooter..she needs to apologize to the people of Dayton for her crazy supporter!

  48. @3:14 "Gruesome and grizzly" video games, movies, music and books are produced and consumed around the world. Yet, mass shootings on this scale and frequency are a problem unique to the USA. Where is the logic? The logic is simple: NRA money.

    Of course a country where nearly everybody can walk around with a gun will be dangerous. Even responsible gun owners can have a crisis or temporary psychological affliction and do things they will regret later. Then all the people under the influence of alcohol or other drugs carrying a gun. Homicide rates per 100'000 population are about 4 times higher in the USA, than in other countries with similar GDP per capita!

    There are certainly advantages to "liberal firearms laws", but are they worth it? Objectively and subjectively we are safer in Europe, with very strict firearms laws in almost every country.

Think about it they use diversionary tactics and they're employing an age old tactic on the American people for many years now known as divide and conquer you see it yet. We as a free nation of diverse cultures races religions etc. We have a very patient and subtle enemy that care nothing about you and i they only care that you and i contribute to their successful lives thru the social programs theyve created and get kick backs from they have set themselves up as elitist and separated themselves from us and have became vvery rich by taxing us to death among other things yes the dems are a very dangerous enemy and should be engaged as such

  50. Obama literally dropped hundreds of thousands of bombs on innocent little children, men and women of color all over the place. Obama was the only President in history to be at war every single day of his presidency. Obama was constantly detroying country after country. Lybia, Syria, Ukraine, Egypt, Yemen, Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, Pakistan.
    Obama acted on his racism and murderous hatred. Obama is literally a mass murderer.
    He used his GUNS to mow down innocent, defenseless people all over the place. If anyone needs their guns confiscated, it's Obama.
