The city of Dayton, Ohio has announced it will no longer hire anyone who uses tobacco or vapes. [Coincidentally, there was a mass shooting outside a bar in Dayton last night. I doubt it was related to this, but it makes you wonder.]
It does indeed make you wonder.
Why a shooting outside a bar? What goes on outside bars these days? Well, that’s where you find smokers. But I doubt this will be reported anywhere.
Just like it was Parisian smokers outside Paris bars who were being shot by Islamic terrorists in 2015 weren’t reported to have been smokers.
Anyway, I’m supposing that it was a mass shooting of smokers outside that Dayton bar. And that very much connects with the cultural war just launched by the city of Dayton on smokers and vapers. Clearly there are people in Dayton city council who really hate smokers. Perhaps it was one of them who went on a killing spree outside Ned Peppers Dayton bar?
Donald Trump blames El Paso and Dayton massacres on ‘mental illness’
Is it really ‘mental illness’? Is it only ‘mental illness’ that makes young men pick up rifles and shoot lots of people?
Isn’t another possible explanation that these young men were actually soldiers, and soldiers who were obeying orders? And these multiple ‘mass shootings’ are actually part of a mounting civil war, in which enemies are being targeted and shot and killed?
Connor Betts (the Dayton gunman) and Patrick Crusius (the El Paso gunman) were both young white men.
And who were their targets? They seem to have been shooting Deplorables. They were shooting Deplorables sitting drinking and smoking outside a Dayton bar, and they were shooting Deplorables shopping inside an El Paso Walmart.
And wasn’t it also a bunch of Deplorables that were murdered in Las Vegas as they listened to a concert?
It’s always a lone gunman. Why is it always a lone gunman? Because lone gunmen can easily be dismissed as crazy people, and not part of some sort of wider conspiracy.
And after you’ve shot a bunch of Deplorables, you blame it all on the arch-deplorable Donald Trump:
El Paso shooting: John Oliver calls out Trump, white nationalism and anti-immigration rhetoric after latest attack
Maybe I’m wrong. Maybe Connor Betts and Patrick Crusius really were just lone nuts after all. But the more of these mass shootings there are, the more I begin to think that they’re all connected, and part of a wider, mounting civil war.
And not just a civil war in the USA, but pretty much everywhere else as well.
P.S. Definitely smokers present 28 seconds into this video:
