Sabbath slaughter in a synagogue

“Worshipers were brutally murdered by a gunman targeting them simply because of their faith.”— Robert Jones, Chief of FBI’s Pittsburgh office

 A day following the arrest of Cesar Altieri Sayoc, 56, charged with sending pipe bombs to prominent liberals, we are hit with news of a mass murder during a joyful Sabbath baby naming ceremony at a Pennsylvania synagogue.

Fortunately, none of the rudimentary devices sent through the mail detonated, though they stoked fear nationally. The combined talents of the FBI, Secret Service, Department of Justice, the U.S. Attorneys’ Office for the Southern District of New York, the NYPD, and Florida law enforcement, were able to zone in on the man with a prior criminal history in short order. Read the criminal complaint here.

That was not the case in the Saturday morning mass shooting at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life Synagogue. Among the eleven people killed were two brothers and a husband and wife. Six others, including 4 police officers, were wounded in the bloodbath by a gunman, spewing anti-Semitic venom as he opened fire — yelling “All Jews must die,” and that Jews were “committing genocide to his people.”  According to reports, this premeditated vicious crime is likely the deadliest attack against the Jewish community in U.S. history.

The liberal media always look for a connection to President Trump when violence occurs. The heavily armed synagogue gunman, Robert Bowers, 46, was not a fan of the president, referring to him as a “globalist,” and letting it be known that he didn’t vote for him and would never wear a MAGA hat. Bowers was shot by the police and is currently hospitalized. Prosecutors have filed 29 charges against him including violations of federal hate crimes statutes. President Trump has called for the reinstatement of the death penalty.

This is the list of “Persons Sentenced to Execution in Pennsylvania as of Oct. 1, 2018.” Some of them have been on death row for over 30 years. Before leaving office in Jan. 2015, Republican Gov. Tom Corbett signed three execution orders. Incoming Gov. Tom Wolf, a Democrat, placed a moratorium on executions. One of those murderers who hit the jackpot with a Democrat in office, was convicted in 1982 of killing 13 people, including five of his own children. He’s still above ground and getting three squares a day.

    Among those killed by this vile loser living in a van (he had previously lived with his mother until she kicked him out) were professors, accountants, dentists and respected medical doctors…accomplished people whose lives made a difference. May God bless them all.

  2. Rob Haney says:

    The irony of Trump saying he wanted the reinstatement of the death penalty is that the Jewish population, so frequently bonded to the Democrat Party, would be the most vocal in opposition to the reinstatement.

    Recently, the Pope changed the Catholic Catechism to declare that the death penalty is now inadmissible. This is only further confirmation of what most Catholic conservatives already knew. The hierarchy of the Catholic Church is ruled by Democrat Party socialists. The protection of sacrilegious homosexual priests and bishops by the Catholic hierarchy is further evidence.

    The U.S. DOJ has just launched an investigation of the homosexual conspiracy within the Catholic Church throughout the country.

    Comparisons are one-sided. James Hodgkinson, the anti-Trump, Bernie Sanders supporter who attempted to massacre Republican congressmen at a baseball practice was quickly excused as “deranged,” though he was sharp enough to premeditate his attempted massacre and make inquiries as to which team was practicing, to make sure he targeted Republicans.
    It’s doubtful that liberals will excuse pipe bomb maker Cesar Sayoc as suffering from any psychosis since he was identified as a registered Republican. I’m not advocating for any leniency toward this wanna-be killer. He deserves none. Just making an observation.

    • Frankly Speaking says:

      I cringed when Eric Trump repeatedly used the term “deranged” when being interviewed by Judge Jeanine Pirro last night. As the President’s son, he was foolishly setting up an insanity defense for this clearly intentional killer, armed to the teeth and unequivocally screaming his antisemitic screed as he mowed down worshipers who should feel secure in the places of worship. The 2015 Charleston, S.C. black church slaughter seems to have set the stage for this monstrous type of action.

    Wait—–
    The Bowers guy in PA lived in a poster-covered van?

    The Sayoc guy In FL also lived in a poster-covered van.
    Perfect graphics that would have had to be done by a professional.

    Too many loose ends.

    Meanwhile,
    Paul Ryan (he LIVES!!!) on TV says that he worries about the people attending Trump political rallies. That those people are participating in “tribal identity politics” which was something that
    Saul Alinsky defined.
    Paul Ryan talking Saul Alinsky.
    OK, Paul, you can collect your pieces of silver, now.

    Joe Biden, October 26, 2018:
    “This division, this hatred, this ugliness–it has to end. Words matter.
    I’ve never, never, never, ever looked at a political opponent as an enemy”

    Joe Biden, March 20, 2018, speaking about President Trump:
    “If we were in high school, I’d take him behind the gym and
    beat the Hell out of him”.

    (be sure to take your gang with you, Joe, otherwise you might not do too well)

    They both were in vans with placards and political statements??

    • Seeing Red AZ says:

      Sam and Lynda,
      Thanks for catching the error. It’s been corrected. Fat finger syndrome?

    The fact that someone states that he hates a specific race or religion baffles me. To say that you hate all Jews is a stretch. All Jews? Not one good one in the entire religion. How about I hate all blacks? Really, not one good black person in the entire race. How about I hate all whites? Even the little baby who is so new to the world he doesn’t even know he has been born? You hate him as well?

    Maybe if you were more specific on your hates it might help to understand them. To say I hate all Englishmen who do this or say that at least gives us a idea of what motivates you.. Then at least we might start a discussion as to why you may or may not be correct in your strong dislikes. But to hate everyone in a specific race or religion is just unreasonable. I hate people who are unreasonable.
