Five people killed in Washington State by a Middle Eastern immigrant. Many people died this weekend in Ohio from drug overdoses. N.C. riots!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 26, 2016
Somebody should probably let Trump know that Turkey is majority Muslim, but not actually in the Middle East--it's Europe. (People died from drug overdoses everywhere. One man's riot is another man's freedom of speech. He's not the most woke MF I ever came across, basically. He just about manages conscious.)
But there's this thing Cetin might have done before opening fire on a Macy's make-up counter killing five victims, four of which were female--he might have called out a woman's name. This entirely fits in with something I've been noticing about mass killers. Misogyny is a prelude. It might even be context for all I can tell. The guy was militaristic and macho--the one Tweet where he mentioned Hillary Clinton kind of reads like a bet where if someone loses, they do something like shave their head--in other words, if his team could possibly win, he would consider voting for Hillary Clinton which is so not his thing, since he considers Obama a Commie. He must have given his team bad prospects.
His FaceBook and Twitter presence is ridiculously skimpy for a person of his generation. I get the sense of someone who wasn't making social connections and who dropped out occasionally. Christopher Koulouris of Scallywag and Vagabond did a pretty deep-dive on this subject. It's a solid and detailed profile of a guy who was kind of a fuck-up--but definitely hated women.
All the details aren't in yet, and the dumb piece of work was taken in alive, so he still might pledge allegiance to Daesh because shooting other humans because you are basically unfuckable is a pretty lame thing to do. But I am kind of leaning toward misogynist dipshit with this one. Also--not sure how five people getting shot to death isn't more of a bigger news-thing.
