Slowly Mounting Civil War

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?

Not hard to imagine smokers sitting at the tables there, just like in Paris.

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:

  1. There was an owner of a bar in Canada about 10 years ago, I believe his name was Gary Desrosier , who wasworking on a database that seemed to strongly indicate a consistent rise in the murder rate in cities during the year or two after smoking bans were put in place . I have since lost touch with him, but have always wondered how that research would have turned out if there had been funding to really do it properly across a number of cities and countries.

    People are getting angrier by the day about one or another governmental interference in peoples’ private lives.
    Sure enough, the BBC was quick to blame President Trump for the El Paso shooting and the anti-gun lobby is trying to get a ban yet again, conveniently omitting that in countries which have a ban on guns shootings still happen.
    The youngster (21 years old) El Paso shooter has been charged with capital murder and faces the death penalty. Surely he must have been aware of this prior to his action?

    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.
    There is very little to be found about the motive of the youngster shooter in Dayton. If it was connected to the cultural war on smokers and vapers it will not be published.

    The city of Dayton, Ohio has announced it will no longer hire anyone who uses tobacco or vapes.
    This is openly displayed discrimination in a time when discrimination is supposed to be a thing of the past.
    No wonder people are losing confidence in their governments.

    Frank, I was going to agree with Joe. L.

    But having remembered that Smoker Sniper game from years ago I’ve changed my mind. What seemed ludicrous then looks rather different now.

    Remember this?

    Snipers could soon snuff out smoking”
    July 23, 2011

    “So let’s set a squad of licensed snipers on the streets, with permission to pick off smokers whenever there’s a clear shot.
    I confidently predict that the prospect of having your head blown off while enjoying what you didn’t realise would be your last cigarette would give smokers up and down the country an extra incentive to kick the habit.
    And if they defiantly carry on puffing, when they are popped between the eyes it will save the health service all the costs of caring for them in their declining years.
    We know bans don’t work if they’re not enforced. My way is simpler, and a lot more effective.”

    It’s been on offer since at least 2011, that’s an awful lot of people that will have seen it.
