In other words, trust, an important cement in any society, is everywhere being erased. 

When trust is erased, things fall apart. 

When things fall apart, mass violence is the consequence.

Paul Craig Roberts

The unintended consequences of mass shootings and the attempts to use these shootings for various agendas can be far worse than the shootings themselves and ultimately endanger far more people.

I was listening to NPR this morning prior to President Trump’s 10 AM EST address on the shootings.  NPR set Trump up for blame.  Trump opposes illegal immigration and spoke of the 20,000 person caravan as “an invasion.”  And so forth.  And it wasn’t just NPR.  As USA reported, while joining in the blame trump orchestration, “Media outlets around the country, and around the world, decried his [Trump’s] role in inspiring a shooter who gunned down 20 people.” US Rep. Veronica Escobar (D,TX) said:  “All of this has happened because Hispanic people have been dehumanized. They have been dehumanized by the president, by his enablers, by other politicians.”

Rep. Escobar did not explain why and how a country’s defense of its borders constitutes dehumanization of those that the law requires to be kept out.  Is the President of the United States, who is sworn to enforce the laws and Constitution of the US, supposed to violate the law?  If the American people want open borders, they should inform their representatives and get a law passed that abolishes border controls.  If Hispanics are dehumanized by being kept out, so are Russians, Chinese, North Koreans, Iranians, and Venezuelans, all people declared to be national security threats to the US which employs a massive armed force to be sure these threats don’t invade us. Just imagine how we dehumanized the Japanese and Germans during World War II by keeping them from invading us…

We are unlikely to discover the real causes as long as shootings are used to advance agendas.  What is important is not the facts but the advancement of agendas.

Whereas the Dayton shooter wants to kill fascists, which presumably includes white supremacists, the El Paso shooter is portrayed as a white supremacist who hates Hispanics.  Even President Trump has bought into this characterization of the shooter.  However, the El Paso shooter’s manifesto doesn’t support this characterization of his motives. He is concerned that the core population of his country is being marginalized and dispossessed by several developments including automation and illegal immigrants and their demands.  It so happens that the current illegal immigrants are from south of the border, but he doesn’t hate them because they are Hispanic.  If they were coming from Asia, or Africa or a different planet, he would see it as the same problem. To the shooter, it is not a problem of hate but of fact. There are more people than there are jobs.

He addresses the issue that his actions will be blasted “as the sole result of racism and hatred of other countries.”  He blames this response on American hypocrites, largely white people, who “support imperialistic wars that have caused the loss of tens of thousands of American lives and untold numbers of civilian lives. The argument that mass murder is okay when it is state sanctioned is absurd. Our government has killed a whole lot more people for a whole lot less.”

One of the El Paso shooter’s concerns with immigration is that “continued immigration will make one of the biggest issues of our time, automation, so much worse. Some sources say that in under two decades, half of American jobs will be lost to it. . . . So it makes no sense to keep on letting millions of illegal or legal immigrants flood into the United States.”  This logical conclusion together with betrayal by America’s white leaders and the damage done to Americans by the corporations are the political and economic reasons he gives for his attack. “My motives for this attack are not at all personal.”  In other words, the attack does not stem from his hatred of Hispanic immigrants but from the adverse consequences for American citizens of mass immigration from wherever.

He also writes in his manifesto that “the idea of deporting or murdering all non-white Americans is horrific.  Many have been here at least as long as the whites, and have done as much to build  our country.”

As for being inspired by Trump to murder immigrants, the El Paso shooter writes: “My ideology has not changed for several years. My opinions on automation, immigration, and the rest predate Trump and his campaign for president. I [am] putting this here because some people will blame the President or certain presidential candidates for the attack. This is not the case. I know that 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.” Truer words were never spoken.

The fact that the El Paso shooter’s manifesto does not support the storyline of the media is the reason the media refuses to publish the manifesto and why the Drudge Report was denounced for posting the manifesto.  The shooter’s manifesto contradicts the controlled explanation of the event…

This is audacious, and as it succeeds it creates more hatred of Jews.  As Voltaire wrote,” To find out who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.”  Certainly it is not the “white supremacist” who cannot be criticized.

The place in society of the white male, long undermined by reverse discrimination, and now aggravated by jobs offshoring, automation, and heavy legal and illegal third world immigration and work visas, has produced valid concerns among white men that, if expressed, cause them to be branded hate-filled white supremacists.

White people, especially straight white males who have to pretend to be homosexuals so that their feminist bosses don’t fire them, are called every name in the book and threatened with castration and violence.  Their history and historical monuments are destroyed, and none of the “minorities” and feminists spewing the hatred are ever called “black supremacists,” “feminist supremacists,” “Hispanic supremacists” and charged with “hate speech” and “hate crimes,” or forced to apologize, or fired.

When a Hispanic at Texas State University wrote in the student newspaper that white DNA is “an abomination,” he wasn’t denounced for hate speech and called a Hispanic supremacist and suspended.  Feminist Georgetown University professor Christine Fair was not accused of hate speech or being a feminist supremacist or forced to resign when she tweeted, “Look at this chorus of entitled white men (Senate Judiciary Committee) justifying a serial rapist’s (Kavanaugh) arrogated entitlement. All of them deserve miserable deaths while feminists laugh as they take their last gasps. Bonus: we castrate their corpses and feed them to swine.” But when UMass football coach Mark Whipple disputed a call that cost his team a win by saying “we had a chance and they rape us,” he was denounced by his university and had to grovel and beg forgiveness for offending feminists by misusing the word “rape,” a word that can only be used as feminists specify. Only a woman can experience rape, not a football team.  Can you imagine a football coach almost losing his job over this?

The assault on whiteness is now part of official educational policy. In New York City the head of the education department, Richard Carranza, a Hispanic, is conducting a campaign against “toxic white supremacy culture.” His training program for teachers identifies objectivity, individualism, belief in meritocracy, and Protestant work ethic as manifestations of white supremacy that have to be rooted out of the education system. Carranza says these white values constitute a deep-rooted bigotry. Carranza dismisses whites, who object to his portrayal of their values as racial biases, as defensive of white supremacy culture. To get rid of whiteness, Carranza has fired numerous white education department officials.

The New York Post has exposed Carranza’a racist policy— https://nypost.com/2019/05/19/carranzas-lunatic-war-on-toxic-whiteness/
— but the New York Times supports the anti-white racist policy. The mayor who appointed him, Democrat Bill de Blasio, has kept Carranza in charge of New York schools despite his racist policy.

The white core population, despite its almost fatal insouciance, is gradually concluding that many forces are at work to stamp it out. Unrestrained immigration is only one of them…

Mass shootings are new in our history and are becoming more prevalent.  These shootings seem to be leading to the repeal of the Second Amendment.  Indeed, I am certain that the US Supreme Court justices are being lobbied by “progressive forces” as I write to change their ruling in order to save lives.  As the shootings advance gun control, many gun owners believe that the shootings are orchestrated by the deep state in order to disarm the population and thereby prevent any resistance to the tyranny of the rising police state, which as John Whitehead has made clear is in plain view.

In other words, trust, an important cement in any society, is everywhere being erased.

When trust is erased, things fall apart.

When things fall apart, mass violence is the consequence.
