Oregon shooting anti-Christian hate crime?

According to the highly regarded New York Post.

Will liberals call this a hate crime, or can Christians only be perpetrators of hate crimes, never the victims?

* * *

OK, the shooter, Chris Harper-Mercer, has a black mother (who’s a nurse) and a white father (who was never in his life). He’s an introverted nerdy person who’s into conservative politics except he’s an atheist who dislikes religion.

Could be beta-male rage. I’m not sure.

  1. News outlets have now retracted the claim that the gunman targeted Christians.

    • No way a respected newspaper like the NY Post could print a false story.

      • I remember when it was a respectable paper–that stopped in the 1970s.

      • I’m not aware of any respectable newspapers. Though some are worse; the descent into clickbait hell is a solid sign, like graduating from weed to coke (imagine seeing you here, The Atlantic).

    • The NY Post quoted a named source, Kortney Moore, who was in the class. From the girl’s description it sounds like he shot the instructor, Larry Levine, in the head at the start. And then told everyone to get own on the ground before asking them one by one their religion. If the person answered “Christian” he’d shoot them in the head. Otherwise, he’d shoot them in the legs. Some media outlet may be using the Jewish instructor’s murder to suggest he wasn’t targeting Christians specifically but religious people in general. It’s hard to say. But he was definitely targeting people based on religion. And I kind of doubt he went to a community college in a small, rural Oregon town looking for Jews.

      His “dating profile” lists his group memberships as — Doesn’t Like Organized Religion, Left Hand Path, Magick and Occult, Meditation and Not Religious But Spiritual. It’s pretty obvious this guy is coming from an anti-religious/occult direction. Interestingly, the guy also lists himself “mixed race” and “conservative republican”. I wonder which of these the media will emphasize?

      • According to the DailyBeast article, Anastasia Boylan, who was shot multiple times, says he specifically asked Christians to identify themselves. So apparently he was targeting Christians after all. I’m not sure where ironrailsironweights gets the idea that the msm is disputing that. I haven’t seen that anywhere.

    • I have no idea what happened, of course. However, if some crazy asks you your religion just so he can shoot you, you are not, repeat not obligated to give some kind of “witness” to your faith by standing up to be shot. I don’t care what religion, ethnic group, whatever the psycho is targeting. He is a random psycho! Further, if anyone is trying to kill you because of some identity, do not help them!. I know this is obvious to readers here, but dang, you would think ordinary sane parents would teach their kids this stuff. If you love to “stand up” for your faith do it on some blog or the NYTimes comments section, not in front of a psycho killer!

      Okay I am done ranting now.

  2. If he was targeting Christians, I would guess he is some type of atheist. Maybe he f-ing loves science?

  3. Dude looks like a nerdy half-black and was a Black Lives Matter supporter. I guess white lives didn’t.

  4. He’s a Muslim. Did you hear Obama speak? God he’s a politics-oozing POS. Anyway, he said that “no matter WHY he THOUGHT he did it, the real reason is that he’s mentally ill”.

    Hmmm…. Did he say that about Root? Why oh why would he need to downplay what the shooter “thought” his motivation was.

    Also, how is it that after 10 hours after the shooting, we still don’t know squat about the guy? He’s a Muslim and the press is sitting on the info because it’s not news that fits.

    • He lists himself as a conservative Republican. This should prove interesting.

  6. Lion, you should look again. The shooter was black, and he hated whites but especially Christian whites

    • No because with a Black Asian mix you get the best of both worlds, BBC and a high IQ.

    • I think Sanders’ aim is to give full legal status to anyone already here while keeping employers from bringing in even more immigrants for cheap labor. You might prefer the illegal immigrants be deported, but this still probably represents a more “conservative” policy than anyone except Trump, and how much success he will have in deporting those already here might be dubious. What is for sure is Sanders will crack down on the likes of H-1B hiring like no one else.

      He also probably views legal status as a labor issue, keeping them from being a second-class low-wage labor force.


      October 2, 2015 at 12:02 am

      • Sanders is a Leftist. He doesn’t belong anywhere near power if it can be helped. Nuff said.

      • Reagan got chumped with the same strategy as I recall. Your side takes an irrevocable step (legal status), and then hopes the other side will hold their promise forever (no more cheap immigrants). Then they renege on it.


        October 2, 2015 at 11:24 am

      • Lion is taking his anti-rich philosophy too far in supporting Sanders. Yes, the super-rich tend to be liberal and vote Democrat, but leftism is not the answer. A nation governed by the policies Sanders proposes would be disastrous.


        October 2, 2015 at 6:39 pm

      • ” A nation governed by the policies Sanders proposes would be disastrous.”

        Whatever you can object to in his social policies, his economic policies are the best of all candidate on either side by an enormous measure. He has the only set of policies that will let the US possible grapple with the post-labor economy characterized by chronic unemployment, low growth (unless its funded by unsustainable personal debt loads) and zero economic mobility.

  7. When it comes to American shootings everyone comes to the story with an agenda and wants to pin the blame on a group or a cause.

    It seems this guy had commented on the fact that shooters are given 15 minutes of fame after their crime. This is an obvious factor for some of the shooters.

    Steve Sailer has suggested that the shooters are not given the publicity they crave. But this is difficult when everyone in the world looks at these events for some kind of ‘sign’ which demonstrates whatever their pet theory happens to be for why America is the way that it is (blacks, whites, Muslims, atheists, conservatives, etc).

    That’s why the ones that are most quickly forgotten are ones by people who represent nothing in the culture wars. When that mute Korean oddball shot all the people in Virginia Tech you could sense the boredom of the media–‘Korean! What are we supposed to do with that?’

  8. He attended a school for emotionally disturbed/autistic kids.

  9. Oregon is a mere 2 percent black, yet nine people are still dead at the hands of a crazed African American. He and his mother recently recently moved there from L.A. County. The city of Roseburg itself contains only 106 black people, 0.5 percent of the total.

    The shooter graduated from the Switzer Learning Center, a school that specializes in treating children with autism. I gather that he and his African American mother enjoyed going to shooting ranges together.

    • “He and his mother recently recently moved there from L.A. County.”

      Yeah, they wanted a safer area.

      I wonder how many people were murdered last year in Roseburg and how many perps were black.

  10. So if I’m following all this he was a UK Black neo-Nazi IRA fan with documented severe mental problems who somehow got a gun in a state with gun controls after mom took him out shooting and entered a legally mandated gun-free zone. Therefore gun confiscation.

    Where does one begin?

  11. good looking alphas (of which i am not one) should put betas and omegas in their place. if it’s ingrained into their heads from junior high that they are undeserving of hot women and value transference jobs. they’ll be less shocked when they don’t get them, and less inclined to act out.


    October 2, 2015 at 11:35 pm

    • less inclined to act out because they already know their place in the hierarchy*
