El Paso and Dayton Killers—Left/Right Fascist Profiles

Aug. 5, 2019 (EIRNS)—While the media have been full of almost constant rants that the killings were the result of Trump’s “racism” and his “spewing hatred,” the profiles of the two killers reveal something far more truthful and important—although there are “right” and “left” aspects to both, they share a fascist hatred for humanity.

Patrick Crusius, the El Paso killer, did indeed include racist and anti-Hispanic rants in the manifesto he posted 20 minutes before starting his killing spree against mostly Hispanics, telling them to “go back,” denouncing “race mixing,” and calling for partitioning the U.S. for different races, while also supporting the slaughter of Muslims in Christchurch, New Zealand.

But his manifesto is titled “An Inconvenient Truth,” and it is not an accidental reference to Al Gore’s lying diatribe about carbon and climate. Crusius writes:

“The decimation of the environment is creating a massive burden for future generations. Corporations are heading the destruction of our environment by shamelessly over harvesting resources.... Consumer culture is creating thousands of tons of unnecessary plastic waste and electronic waste, and recycling to help slow this down is almost non-existent. Urban sprawl creates inefficient cities which unnecessarily destroys millions of acres of land. We even use god knows how many trees worth of paper towels just wipe water [sic] off our hands ... most of ya’ll are just too stubborn to change your lifestyle. So the next logical step is to decrease the number of people in America using resources. If we can get rid of enough people, then our way of life can become more sustainable.”

This is a virtual restatement of Bertrand Russell: “If a Black Death could be spread throughout the world once in every generation, survivors could procreate freely without making the world too full. ... The state of affairs might be unpleasant, but what of it?”

Crusius also supported policies identified with the new “progressives” in the Democratic Party: “Achieving ... ambitions social projects like universal healthcare and [universal basic income] would become far more likely to succeed if ... tens of millions of dependents are removed.”

The Dayton killer, Connor Betts, was a registered Democrat, who hated President Donald Trump, denouncing his election and accusing him of building “concentration camps” on the border. He said on social media that he was a “leftist” and would support Elizabeth Warren, praising antifa and the Democratic Socialists of America. He had shown his psychotic tendencies while in high school, posting a “kill list” of male classmates and a “rape list” of female classmates, resulting in his suspension.
