"I don’t know of anything in the history of Black people in this country in which I’ve read some account in which it ended with, “and then they gave up.” That’s just not what we do. I know we work for the future of our children and our grandchildren and their children."

The text of political ads and messages by Republicans, including this one from Elise Stefanik, or Blake Masters *hours after the shooting*, could easily fit in the shooter's manifesto.

Cable companies like @ATT , @comcast , & @Verizon must take responsibility for amplifying the white nationalist conspiracy theory that inspired the murder of 10 Black people by a white supremacist in Buffalo, NY. Tell cable carriers to drop Fox News:

@JDVance1 @bgmasters 5. @RepStefanik , a member of the GOP House leadership, ran Facebook ads claiming Biden and Pelosi were plotting to "flood our voter roles [sic] with 11 MILLION NEW VOTERS by giving illegal immigrants amnesty."

A delegation led by Vice President Kamala Harris flew to the United Arab Emirates to pay respects to the federation’s late ruler and meet the new president. The trip is the highest-level visit by Biden administration officials to oil-rich Abu Dhabi.

The murderer's manifesto went beyond White Supremacy, to include Fox/GOP-induced moral panics such as CRT (which he deemed a Jewish conspiracy) and the idea that trans people are mentally ill.

I see good news in this story. A pro-active effort by the influential D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals to provide a way for staff to provide honest feedback confidentially, mandatory and immediate training for judges, hiring addl human resource personnel.

Spent the day in Buffalo talking to Black residents about how they're processing yesterday's mass shooting that killed 10. The shared feeling: Racism here was evident long before the gunman's arrival. "The pain is in our DNA at this point," one said.
