Food festival shooter identified

https://nypost.com/2019/07/29/gilroy-shooting-gunman-reportedly-identified-as-santino-william-legan/

19-year-old Italian-Iranian white supremacist type. My guess would be that he’s from a prole background, and he targeted the food festival to attack the SWPL class, punishing them for eating food that he couldn’t afford to buy himself.

People like Hillary Clinton, who didn’t care at all about the mass shooting in a black neighborhood in Brooklyn even though its in her home state, are all up in arms (figuratively, not literally) about the shooting at the food festival. Because NAM violence in a black neighborhood doesn’t advance The Narrative, but a shooting by a white (despite being part Iranian) supremacist loser does.

This is an article about the shooter’s amateur-boxer older brother.

Even as crime continues to fall in most of NYC, the New York Times recently reported on the increasing violence in the black neighborhoods of Brooklyn (which the NYT euphemistically calls “North Brooklyn,” but we know that they mean the black neighborhoods and not the SWPL neighborhood of Greenpoint which is actually the northernmost neighborhood in Brooklyn).

Are De Blasio’s soft-on-crime policies finally catching up with us?

  1. The SJWs and their allies in the leftist controlled media will do their gun control Kabuki dance, but no minds will be changed on guns or any other issue. If anything, the battle lines are hardening…about half the contry despises the other half and vice versa.

  2. How could anyone be Italian and Iranian? According to JS, Italians don’t marry people who are not European descended because they are provincial and bigoted. ………………………………………..(crickets)

    • Not true, Italians intermarry with everyone. There are a lot of part-Hispanic part guidos, like Ron Ortiz-Magro from The Jersey Shore.

      Snookie is South American adopted by an Italian family, so I don’t know where she fits into that.

      • “she is part Romani, Iberian American, South Asian, East Asian, Middle Eastern, and Jewish with roots in North Western Croatia, Macedonia, Slovakia, Russia, and Spain”

        So every type of guido except guido.

    • Italians seem to like Hispanics, but they are anti-black, but not anti-black like Northern European Americans.

      You remember that guido bully who infuriated a smaller frame man with a passion of drawing curvaceous women on motorcycles, that led to a shooting rampage and his death? It turns that guido was engaged to a Hispanic mestiza who look liked a man.

      Ok, what, who's this again?

  3. Just to be clear, where are you getting that he’s a white supremacist?

      • You can’t trust the MSM’s description of someone as a “white supremacist.” They regard anyone who is a race realist or hbd believer as a white supremacist. They would regard you as a white supremacist.

      • Well I would like more proof of that. I realize in the media a white shooter is automatically assumed to be a white supremacist until proven otherwise, but your New York Post article identified the book he posted about as some sort of white supremacist book, but when I googled it I couldn’t find anything to back that up. He may in fact be a white supremacist, but just because the media declares it so doesn’t mean that’s the case.

      • The groups most associated with the book are actually anarchists and satanists. The Book of Satan by Anton LaVey is pretty much a rehash. The book is actually kind of silly. But I think it appeals mostly to teens of a certain rebellious mindset.

  4. There isn’t anything in his name that would suggest a Persian heritage. Santino could be Italian, and Hispanic males could be called Santinos. Legan is an Anglo surname.

    Is this an unique situation of your term “beta rage”? You can’t beg a hot chick to bed with you if are unattractive, but I’m sure SWPLs would dangle a piece of their expensive foodie for you to consume, if you convince them to virtue signal.

    • The article on his brother uses LeGan as the family name.

      The family seems reasonably well off (mentions of a Tesla) and some athletic accomplishments of the family.
      But maybe the kid was bummed out that he knew he could never afford to live in his home town anymore.

      He was post highschool and probably not in college and might have felt he had peaked.

      • According to Boxrec.com Santino’s boxing brother Rosino fought five times as an amateur in 2014 and 2015 but never turned pro and is now classified as “inactive.” He seems to have been a lightweight or super lightweights. His record was four losses, one win. One of Rosino’s losses was to Jamaine Ortiz, who is currently 11-0 as a pro and holds a very minor title (World Boxing Council Youth World Light Title). None of his other four amateur opponents turned pro.

    • His last name is LeGan, which sounds French. He and his brother look more Italian-French than Iranian.

    • “Legan is an Anglo surname.”

      Legan is not an anglo surname. It’s a scottish surname. But this kid wasn’t anglo, scottish or even french as someone suggested. He’s italian and iranian. Did it never occur to you knuckleheads that his family may have Americanized their name when they immigrated? The name might have originally been Leganno or something.

  5. The Brooklyn shooting was not bigger news because it was gang violence. The man who was killed was a gang member that had recently been released from prison.

    The Garlic Festival shooter was just shooting at random people. It is random senseless violence which makes it big news.

    A month or so ago a man was fired by a car dealer in Morgan Hill, near Gilroy. He went home, got a couple of guns, went back to the dealership and shot and killed his boss and one other employee. He then committed suicide. While this story got a lot of press locally, I don’t think it went national.

    • 11 random people were hit by bullets because of bad aim by the shooters.

      On the other hand, if the guy in California had a dislike of SWPLs, then it’s no more senseless than the shooter in Brooklyn disliking a rival gang member.

        What Trump said is ridiculous but despite being a wonderful city with fantastic food, Baltimore has problems with crime and drugs, just like New Orleans, Seattle and Miami.

      • I never thought of the Garlic Festival as a SWPL event. My impression is much more working class event. My guess is he picked the festival just because there are lots of people there. There also are lots of police there and they appear to have responded quickly or this would have been even worse.

  6. Why would a white supremacist target an event populated by other whites? There are no synagogues or Popeye’s nearby? And don’t they realize that the Left will have a field day with their actions and use it as an excuse to harm/disarm fellow whites?

  7. Sigh, this is a common trope that SWPL food is so expensive. In reality, the minor premium that one would pay for more macrobiotic food is utterly insignificant when compared with the outrageous inflation in the price of housing and communist indoctrination, I mean education.

    • It’s expensive to a prole who’s not used to paying that much for food. The food at the festival was probably three times the price of what a prole thinks that food sold out of a truck should cost.

    • I’d agree. The run in the mill employee who works for Whole Foods aren’t well paid. They are more concerned about paying their bills than a pint of organic ice cream that costs $10.

      By the way, I noticed a general and stark difference between the females who chug a full cart of groceries at Whole Foods vs those at Trader Joes. Women who look better, earn and eat better.

      Ok, what, who's this again?

  8. Lots of Iranians immigrated to the US in the years leading up to and immediately after the overthrow of the Shah. I knew some growing up. They wanted to be Americans, and they assimilated very well. Just great people. You’d never know they’re Iranian, and they don’t practice Islam. Whiter than I am. Lol.

  9. Has anyone else noticed that the media is digging into this kid’s family, identifying his mother, brother and grandparents? They weren’t celebrities or major political figures and they had nothing to do with it. I don’t think innocent people should be dragged into something like this when they had nothing to do with it. This is another example of media run amok.

    “Are De Blasio’s soft-on-crime policies finally catching up with us?”

    In those nabes, yes. In the rest of the city, I fear yes. The subways are shit. I see bad behavior everywhere. On the streets I smell the reek of marijuana everywhere. It’s gotten so when I see a young black person I expect the reek of dope.
