Oath Keepers leader Stewart Rhodes was found guilty of seditious conspiracy by a federal jury …


  1. Shooter is a member of LGBT+ community

    This is LGBT+ on LGBT+ crime

    MSNBC is a misinformation platform

    A shameless political propaganda agency

  2. Ok, law enforcement probably lied about this guy’s initial issue, then they told him he had to accept homosexuals, by who know’s what they did after they found his”explosive”, and if he didn’t accept homosexuality into his life, they’d come back and do it again- like that movie clockwork orange.

  3. Republican lawmakers promote hate, violence, fear and propaganda toward LGBQT,

    Jews, Blacks (BLM), Asians (COVID), Latinos (border), Women (abortion)…

    Republicans spread disinformation especially Trump, DeSantis, Greene, Lake, Fox news…

  4. I heard he got vaccinated and boosted and stood with Ukraine. Plus he was non binary. So anyone talking bad about the shooter needs to be charged with a hate crime. Turn your selves in

  5. "He said go..and sin no more!"

  6. Hey all the haters on the comments section really should look up pluralistic ignorance and the Dunning-Kruger effect. It describes Republicans extremists pretty well..

  7. Does being concerned by teachers that are openly pushing sexual material onto children make me an extremist? Does questioning if someone claims to identify as a cat or have a gender of the day is having mental health issues make me an extremist?

  8. Great, another expert. Kinda looks like ouchy fouchy.

    Don't be deceived.


  9. Were they liberals? If so, what happened was great.


  11. Another crazy liberal with a gun who could have been STOPPED if the “soft on crime on Democrat DA did their job and in-forced the current gun laws!

  12. The shooter's grandfather is an Ultra MAGA GOP Congressman. Cut the BS

  13. Is retaliation for these shootings an inevitable development?

  14. The officials in Colorado did absolutely nothing to prevent those murders. He threatened to bomb one day and bought guns the next day. Only in white America.

  15. FIRST!

    "How Israeli Apartheid Destroyed My Hometown"

    Segregated streets. Settler violence. Military harassment. This happens all over the occupied West Bank, but perhaps nowhere are these scenes more concentrated than in the Old City of Hebron. The once vibrant Palestinian cultural center is now ground zero of Israeli apartheid. It’s also where AJ+‘s Dena Takruri’s family calls home.

  16. The shooter had a history. Red flags were there. Something needs to change.
