Bad Aim

This interesting news about the guy in Houston that shot nine people this morning, courtesy of Daily Kos:

"Law enforcement sources said that the shooter was wearing what appeared to be an antique German uniform with Swastikas on it...Investigators also combed through the shooter's apartment, where they found what appeared to be Nazi paraphernalia inside, according to a law enforcement source."

Thankfully, he managed to kill none of them.  Nazis just can't shoot straight, I guess.  Doesn't bode well for them in the coming race war, does it?  

I'll be interested to see how much of a role this guy's sartorial choices play in the coverage of his behavior, or if, because he is on the white guys' side, he will just be written off as a disturbed person, with no political interests.  I do notice that the neo-Nazi site VDare has the following to say:


"for reasons unknown, he wore a Nazi uniform during his rampage"

I guess it is just beyond their mental capacity to imagine why someone might wear a Nazi uniform while committing a terrorist act.

Not muslim so not terrorist. Not black so not thug killer. Guns and violence are property of the white man.

Just an isolated incident; move along.

He is described as "a troubled lawyer".

"troubled". Therefore deserving of empathy and understanding. So there. I mean, dude... this guy obviously had FINANCIAL and PROFESSIONAL difficulties. Horrible.

So many people who innocently collect Right wing extremist gear are feeling the pressure these days - thanks Obama - if he was collecting, I dunno, Regency period China teacups, or Baseball cards or Jazz records or something, then this attempt to commit mass murder would probably make more sense, who can say?

I just reflect that the commercial news station from which I heard about this story today made no mention whatsoever of the Nazi stuff... so obviously it's just not important to the case.

Well just imagine how his life is ruined because of this?!?

And this aspect of the story seems to have disappeared already.
