Yet Again: 11 Dead in Mass Shooting At Pittsburgh Synagogue

Right-wing gunman walked into the building with an assault weapon and yelled, “All Jews Must die.”

A right-wing, anti-semitic shooter opened fire during a baby-naming ceremony at a Pittsburgh synagogue Saturday, killing 11 people and wounding six others, including four police officers, authorities said.

The FBI named the suspect as Robert Bowers, 46.

Bowers has an active license to carry a firearm and has made at least six known firearm purchases since 1996, a law enforcement official familiar with the investigation told CNN. On September 29, Bowers posted photos of his handgun collection on his account, which included multiple clips and sights. Shortly before the shooting, Bowers posted on his Gab account that he “can’t sit by and watch my people get slaughtered. Screw your optics, I’m going in.”

This 27 October 2018 video from the USA says about itself:

Racist Shooter Had Far More Sinister Plot

A white shooter who murdered two black people in a parking lot tried to enter a predominately black church beforehand. John Iadarola, Nomi Prins, and Jayar Jackson hosts of The Young Turks, break it down.

“A white man who allegedly killed two people at a Kroger grocery store in Kentucky tried to enter a predominantly black church nearby minutes before the fatal shooting, police said. The two people killed Wednesday — Maurice Stallard and Vickie Jones — were shot in the grocery store and the parking lot, respectively. CNN affiliate WDRB described both victims as black. Police arrested suspect Gregory A. Bush, 51, shortly after the shooting, which happened in the Louisville suburb of Jeffersontown. Surveillance video showed that 10 to 15 minutes before the grocery store shooting, Bush tried to enter the First Baptist Church in Jeffersontown, police Chief Sam Rogers said.”

  2. LDF Statement on Tree of Life Synagogue Shooting

    Sherrilyn Ifill, President and Director-Counsel of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc. (LDF), issued the following statement in response to reports of multiple casualties Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, PA:

    “The Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh has been victimized by the most terrible violence during Sabbath services. Our hearts go out to the entire congregation and community. We stand in solidarity with those in the Jewish faith as they mourn this unimaginable tragedy.

    “This violent act of terror comes at a moment when the language of racism, anti-Semitism and dehumanizing rhetoric targeting political opponents has been promoted and condoned by elected leaders in our country, including President Trump. Just this week Democratic and progressive leaders around the country were victims of multiple attempted bombing attacks by a supporter of the President.

    “We demand that our political leaders end their violent, racist and anti-Semitic rhetoric and strongly condemn those who stoke and fan the flames of violence and division. There are real consequences for vulnerable people across our country. Provoking violence cannot be accepted as a political tactic. It is contrary to the principles of democracy and humanity, and it must stop today. We need real leaders in our country who are ready to stand up for equality, justice and peace.

    “We cannot separate today’s terrible act of violence at the Tree of Life synagogue from other acts of terrorism that have targeted Americans based on race, religion or ethnicity. We well remember the pain of Charleston in 2015 and the massacre at the Sikh temple in 2012. Just a few days ago an armed gunman tried to enter an African American church in Kentucky, just before killing two separate, innocent Black grandparents in a Kroger parking lot. These shootings continue a legacy of racist violence against Black people, Jewish people, immigrants, and other racial and religious minorities. The country’s failure to acknowledge and confront that unbroken history and learn from it is literally killing our communities.”
