Dayton Mass Shooter Connor Betts Was An ‘Anti-Fascist’ Leftist Who Was Inspired To Kill By Listening To Endless ANTIFA Calls For Violence And Hate

Connor Betts had long expressed support for ANTIFA accounts, causes and individuals. In the months leading to his rampage, Betts expressed a longing for climactic confrontation. In ­response to an essay by Intercept writer Mehdi Hassan titled, “Yes, Let’s Defeat or Impeach Trump—but What If He Doesn’t Leave the White House?” the shooter wrote: “Arm, train, prepare.”

“Kill every fascist,” mass shooter Connor Betts declared in 2018 on twitter, echoing a rallying cry of ANTIFA ideologues. Over the next year, his tweets became increasingly violent. “Nazis deserve death and nothing else,” he tweeted last October.

We have been warning about the US domestic terror group known as ANTIFA for quite a few years now. Like the Ku Klux Klan, and because of their cowardly nature, they wear masks and hoods to hide their identities. The KKK wear white masks, and ANTIFA wears black masks, while both groups commit acts of mayhem while claiming to be something they’re not. The KKK claims to be a ‘christian organization’, they are nothing of the kind. ANTIFA claims they are ‘anti-fascist’ when in reality they are aggressively fascist. ANTIFA claims they are ‘anti-Nazi’ when in reality they are the closest thing in the 21st century to true Nazism, even more so than the KKK.

Dayton mass shooter Connor Betts was, by his own description, a ‘national socialist’ who demanded the removal of President Trump from office by force. Betts had many tweets where he echoed the ‘anti-nazi’ rhetoric of ANTIFA, and in fact supported ANTIFA across social media. ANTIFA constantly calls for ‘violence and resistance’ against America, and seek its destruction and ruin. Connor Betts killed those people as he followed the natural evolution of ANTIFA teaching.

It is well past time that our government declares ANTIFA as a domestic terror group, removes them from all social media, and makes it illegal for them to conduct their public campaigns of terror and intimidation. Here is a link to a petition signed by 368,423 Americans asking the president to declare ANTIFA as a domestic terror group, but so far no action has been taken. Why not?

Dayton Shooter Connor Betts May Be ANTIFA’s First Mass Killer

FROM THE NY POST: Over the weekend, America suffered two mass shootings within hours of one another, in El Paso, Texasand Dayton, Ohio. These followed another mass shooting in Gilroy, Calif., a week earlier. The alleged perpetrators of the attacks were young, “lone-wolf” gunmen. All three carried out carnage against innocents using high-power rifles. All told, Santino ­Legan (Gilroy), Patrick Crusius (El Paso) and Connor Betts (Dayton) killed 34 people and injured dozens more. While the attacks are similar, the response from liberals and leftists has been anything but. Democratic presidential candidates Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris and Bernie Sanders succinctly condemned white nationalism — the ideology espoused by the El Paso shooter in his purported 2,300-word manifesto.

However, when it comes to condemning the Dayton shooter’s militant far-left views, all remain mum. Others, such as anti-police activist Shaun King, even claimed the Dayton shooter targeted blacks in a hate crime, though ­racism doesn’t appear to have been a component of his twisted worldview.

While Betts, the Dayton shooter, didn’t leave behind a manifesto, his extensive social-media footprint provides clues as to what may have inspired him. Federal investigators announced Tuesday that they are looking into his exploration of violent ideologies.

Connor Betts had long expressed support for ANTIFA accounts, causes and individuals.

That would be the loose network of militant leftist activists who physically attack anyone to the right of Mao in the name of “anti-fascism.” In particular, Betts promoted extreme hatred of American border enforcement.

“Kill every fascist,” the shooter declared in 2018 on twitter, echoing a rallying cry of antifa ideologues. Over the next year, his tweets became increasingly violent. “Nazis deserve death and nothing else,” he tweeted last October. Betts frequently flung the label “Nazi” at those with whom he disagreed online.

By December, he reached out on Twitter to the Socialist Rifle ­Association, an antifa gun group, to comment about bump stocks, and the SRA responded to him. (A bump stock is an attachment for semiautomatic rifles that allow them to fire much faster.)

In the months leading to his rampage, Betts expressed a longing for climactic confrontation. In ­response to an essay by Intercept writer Mehdi Hassan titled, “Yes, Let’s Defeat or Impeach Trump—but What If He Doesn’t Leave the White House?” the shooter wrote: “Arm, train, prepare.”

By June he tweeted: “I want socialism, and I’ll not wait for the idiots to finally come round understanding.” Last week, he promoted posts that demonized Sens. Ted Cruz and Bill Cassidy’s resolution against antifa extremism.

America’s historical and contemporary struggles with fringe far-right violence has provided politicians, leaders and media with blueprints to identify and confront that form of extremism. The national unity in rejecting violent white-nationalist ideologues like James Fields and Dylan Roof are emblematic of America’s resolve against the far right.

The unanimous rejection of the El Paso shooter’s beliefs, including by President Trump, once more demonstrated the nation’s resolve against hard-right hate. Yet when it comes to far-left violent extremism, there is a gaping blind spot in the mainstream discourse, and we are less safe because of it.

Beyond banal condemnations of violence, politicians and leaders must work to uproot far-left militant beliefs from mainstream politics. The Dayton shooter promoted the same virulently anti-law-enforcement rhetoric that too many mainstream figures on the left flirt with. And yet it was courageous police officers who finally ended his carnage when they shot and killed him outside the Ned Peppers Bar in Dayton’s entertainment district.

His case also makes clear that ANTIFA’s violence goes far beyond the street hooliganism it has become infamous for. The group espouses the belief that liberal democracy is irredeemably oppressive — fascistic, even — and must be thoroughly destroyed.

Hence, acts of extreme violence against individuals, property and the state are seen as stepping stones, bringing us closer to the collapse of society and a new, more just societal order. As anyone familiar with 20th-century history knows, apocalyptic ideas of this kind won’t stop with street thuggery.

Last month, an antifa militant firebombed an Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility in Tacoma, Wash. Police say Willem van Spronsen was killed after he aimed a rifle at them during the attack. His gun had apparently malfunctioned before he could fire. In his manifesto, he called for his “comrades” to take up arms in confronting the ascendant fascism of the state. In one of Betts’ tweets ­before he extinguished the lives of nine fellow Americans, he responded to a person asking if van Spronsen had been a “villain or martyr?”

Betts flatly replied: “martyr.” READ MORE
