Were Country Music Fans Murdered in Las Vegas Because They Mostly Were White Trump Supporters?

The motive behind the largest mass shooting in America is still unknown. A 64-year-old balding, bearded white male American citizen leading a retirement life, Stephen Paddock, was the suspected shooter. He apparently committed suicide before the police converged on his Las Vegas hotel room on the 32nd floor, where he had rained down sniper fire into a helpless crowd below using an arsenal of semi-automatic and possibly automatic rifles. Thus far, 59 are dead, 515 wounded.

    Starting to doubt the whole narrative. How, under intense hotel security ,was a single man able to pack so much hardware into a room for four days,with out discovery by cleaning staff or security? Why do the sound clips seem to show two streams of fire at a very high rate? How could recreational guns be converted to rapid fire without barrel melting ? Why would a comfortably well off man with a great lifestyle “snap”? The entire story is starting to smell.

    • It is very strange, no question, lets hope he left a message behind.

      • Thinking From First Principles

        It’s very much unclear at this point. He might even be a gun control fanatic who chose to do something this heinous in order to force action on gun control.

          i Think he was an unfortunate palliwood prop, there will be no suicide note because he was dead before it began.

          • Thinking From First Principles

            I’m surprised that we haven’t seen video of the muzzle flashes from the hotel room. A lot would be known if we have video to confirm that there was only firing from one of the openings at a time … or from both.

            There is an alleged picture of the shooter on liveleek after he did himself in,if anyone is interested. I won’t link to it.

      on your tech question, watch this, ar-15 takes 830 rounds, fully auto continuous fire, before barrel failure occurs:

        Just watched a bumper stock video. It was very convincing to me that such a thing could be used but then I am not even a novice when it comes to firearms.

      Some witnesses stated that gun fire was heard from more than one location, and again there was the Muslim woman who told some to expect to die. This has all the markings of jihad.

        echoes probably
        ..would not discount more involved… all to smooth

      He likely didn’t walk the weapons through the front door. Were they delivered to his room via the laundry service, or via the kitchen? Somewhere is an accomplice.

      I know, we should ask Justine. The guy probably felt excluded and didn’t fit in with the other highroller millionaires?

    This fellow has a 13 tattooed on his neck. It looks like an homemade tattoo. Most guys in the Kiwanis Club don’t have 13’s tattooed to their neck in my experience.

  • Tooth&Claw

    I would check this guy’s medical records to see if he got a recent diagnosis of a form of dementia, or other serious health crisis.

  • Dana Garcia

    The Las Vegas massacre does look like the Scalise shooting writ large. If you want to murder a lot of Trump supporters, a country music concert would be easy pickings.

    • WalterBannon

      yup, his target selection reveals both his intent and his belief system

    Can’t get this verse out of my head:

    “This old earthquake’s gonna leave me in the poor house
    It seems like this whole town’s insane
    On the thirty-first floor a gold plated door
    Won’t keep out the Lord’s burning rain”
    (Sin City/Gram Parsons)

  • Jabberwokk

    Not enough evidence.

    It’s just conjecture at this point.

    It is possible, however how hard it is to accept, that there was no obvious motive other than a man who was at societies apex of what a good life was and found it wanting.

    I was going to pass a comment about country music, but this is not the time and place.
