”It’s a terrible terrible thing… what’s going on… with hate in our country and all over the world, and something has to be done.”

“Anybody who does this deserves the death penalty. When people do this they should get the death penalty. and ey shouldn’t have to wait years and years. Now the lawyers are going to get involved and we’ll be ten years down the line. Anybody that does this to innocent people who are in temple or in church, should pay the ultimate price. I’ve felt this way for a long time. People disagree with me. I can’t imagine why.”

Eight dead in shooting at Pittsburgh synagogue  

‘They had a maniac walk in and the didn’t have any protection and it’s so sad to see. So sad to see.

‘It’s a very difficult thing for me to stand as president and watch.

‘Before I ran for office, I watched instances like this and I’d say, “what a shame, what a shame.” It’s tougher when you’re the president of the United States and you have to watch this kind of thing happen. It’s so sad to see.’

He praised the ‘outstanding’ law enforcement and said the gunman was able to get access when he shouldn’t have been because of the lack of security.

‘You look at the violence all over the world. It comes back in the form of a madman, a wacko. We should stiffen up our laws in terms of the death penalty, they shouldn’t have to wait years and years.

‘I think they should stiffen up laws and bring the death penalty into vogue,’ he said.

There was no security at the Tree of Life on Saturday, with former synagogue leaders describing how it operates an open-door policy for worshipers and only puts security on for significant holidays despite fears among community leaders that such a shooting was on the horizon.

‘Today the door is open you can walk in an out. Like most religious institutions, we have an open door,’ the synagogue’s former president, Michael Eisenberg, told CBS Pittsburgh.

He added that security had been a ‘major’ concern for him in the past and that he was working with the government to improve escape routes and emergency procedures.

‘It was a major concern for me, for us.

‘We were working with the DHS to evaluate exit routes, I just spoke to our maintenance person who was able to get out.

    “There was no security at…”

    Disappointing in how being protected has become en vogue.
    Also, in how people flock to crowds.
    Is this a herd mentality?
    If so, how does that happen?

    1. Protect yourself, it’s your right and responsibility.
    Shun your R&R at your own risk.

    2. Avoid crowds always. How many is a crowd? How many were at that church?
    In a world of excess extras will be abandoned.

    Read your comment to that individual (trust me, I’m holding back) on Gab.
    Well said and agree 100% with you.

    Interesting to watch the horseshit @ the shooter’s profile. Very little known. Didn’t vote for Trump. believed some weird conspiracy theory. Hated Jews.

    Nazi? Maybe, but I don’t see it. Republican? Maybe, but I don’t see it. Same can be said for “Democratic”. NRA member? Doubtful – so far no NRA member ever committed a mass murder with a firearm. The NRA educates for the exact opposite behavior; the reporters asking @ the NRA are out of line and imbeciles.

    “AR-15 style weapon?” We may never know the truth of that.

    Was he more effective than the fake bomber? Certainly so! Did he have partners? We don’t know, yet.

    No wonder conspiracies begin. If I were a facebook exec (God forbid) I’d cancel his account but release his stuff publicly. Just a thought: might nip a lot of the bullshit in the bud.

    I go to church with my Glock over my kidney. There are a couple other guys there that I know carry also.

    Gab.ai under siege. Bastion of rightwingery,plus reasons.
    Not going to end well.

    My church is very secure. We get threats frequently. The doors are locked and monitored during services and we have roving security patrols outside before, during and after services. There are probably 40-50 people inside with guns, including me.

    The shooting at the Charleston church a couple years back is what made us change our behavior.

    I am simply stunned that no one in that temple concealed carry. Stunned. Particularly given that the temple did not have security. Maybe now more people will.

    Those poor families. To have such a joyous occasion turn into a lifelong nightmare. I have not heard yet but hoping the baby was not hurt.

    A heavy price has been paid by the victims and their family survivors for carelessness. As noted by Deana, the lesson of the Charleston church murders was not learned by the Pittsburgh synagogue. How many other houses of religion and schools are still inadequately guarded? Prepare mournful comments now for the next three catastrophes of negligence of this sort. If you have time for more than three, congratulations from San Bernardino, Las Vegas, and Sandy Hook Elementary School, Fort Hood, …
    This is all old information to be rummaged through next time the SHTF. Be cautious and lucky!

    GAB has already been blocked from receiving funds by those pricks at PayPal. By Monday their hosting company is shutting them down.
    Proving the point that we need non-progressive sources for everything.

    The only problem with having already dropped PayPal is that I can’t drop them now over this.

    Very sad to see what is happening to Gab. Obviously, the left cannot tolerate contrary viewpoints. Therefore, anything inconsistent with its dogma and/or resistant to being assimilated must be destroyed. Thus, contrarians and conservatives must be silenced at all costs. We are the new Untermenschen, and as such it’s perfectly acceptable to deny us the basic human right of expression. Interesting times, interesting times…

    I do no not wish to be anonymous. My error.

    Oh, and one other thing: has anyone in the MFM called out Calypso Louie Farrakhan for his vitriolic, anti-Semitic, hate speech? Just askin’.

    Since a lot of the posts are already off-subject & talking about GAB et al, regarding that subject, as I have said before, we really need a money laundry:

    Hey, is this Ma’s Laundry?
    Yes it is.
    I want to pay for my load #225 of laundry, the money to be sent to GAB.
    That’s fine, there will be a 1% charge.
    No worries, I’ll pay you via paypal.
    No problem.
    Hello, paypal, please send Ma’s Laundry $XX.XX to pay for my laundry load #225.

    About 10 years ago paypal and ebay tried to snap it off in my ass for $900 for a mint condition vintage (1976) Pioneer PL570 turntable I sold, but the post office destroyed. They even co-opted my bank into their scheme.

    I snapped it off in ALL their asses and told em all to pound sand.
