A Twofer

Identity politics is nasty business.  It was nasty when Democrats asserted that this was a white man's republic, and it isn't any nicer now that other identity groups are preeminent.  From August 26, 2015 Daily Mail:
'Why did I do it? I put down a deposit for a gun on 6/19/15. The Church shooting in Charleston happened on 6/17/15…'

'What sent me over the top was the church shooting. And my hollow point bullets have the victims’ initials on them.'

'As for Dylann Roof? You [redacted]! You want a race war [redacted]? BRING IT THEN YOU WHITE …[redacted]!!!”

At the same time, he professes a deep respect for other mass shooters like Virginia Tech gunman Seung-Hui Cho.

'Also, I was influenced by Seung–Hui Cho. That’s my boy right there. He got NEARLY double the amount that Eric Harris and Dylann Klebold got…just sayin’.
He goes on to say that he has faced both racial and sexual discrimination as a black, gay man and that he was just waiting to explode.

I guess same-sex marriage was not enough.

UPDATE: As my wife pointed out, the left keeps banging the drum with the race card, and then gets upset that they provoke gun violence.  "If you keep saying there are monsters in the castle, eventually the peasants will show up with torches."

Clearly the left has two goals: 1) stir up the race war and 2) exploit the end result of #1 by crying for the outlawing of guns. Therefore they will exploit and actively stir-up race, poverty and mental illness to the goal of outlawing guns rather than make useful efforts to end the real problems. This nut was yet another soldier in O's race war.

Not that I'm a fan of Trump, but he has, as I interpret it anyways, talked in favor of more mental health treatment. See http://www.cnn.com/2015/08/27/politics/donald-trump-virginia-shooting-mental-health-gun-laws/index.html Maybe he has seen your book!
