If it’s a right winger - all conservatives will be treated as potential terrorists. Newspapers will run with the story for years - hate will be ginned up against the ‘vast right wing conspiracy’.

If it’s a Muslim, Homeland Security will tell people he acted alone and to beware of right wingers who might condemn Muslims. Newspapers will run stories about how peaceful most Muslims are - what good neighbors....

If it’s some POS haji, then it’s just “workplace violence,” right?

Or, it will be called 'workplace violence'.

Yes, ‘workplace violence’ - acted alone etc.

If it's a conservative - or even a ‘white hispanic’ all hell will break lose.

Time for the press to create a style book of ‘equality’. Example: Here's how we treat ‘situation A’ - no matter the person's beliefs, ideology or color... Some effort to reject double standards would be appreciated.

That alone tells me the shooter is Muslim, black, or both.

The shooter's apparently still alive. Prayers up for the BN Commander and his family.

Seems just as likely that it’s a soldier who snapped upon learning that he was being sent (back?) to Afghanistan.

Sounds like a high value target tagged by domestic Jihad.

I have no way of knowing right now, but it’s usually safe to assume these days.

Our new gay pride military seems to be thoroughly infiltrated by Muslims and Gang bangers now - This is probably not the last time a “high value” US Officer or non compliant (to Islam) Official is assassinated from the inside or by treacherous “friendly fire”.

It’s the Muslim way.

I’m surprised we don’t have more “fragging for Allah” going on in and around our military bases at home and abroad. It very well might be and we just aren’t hearing about it.

If I was a Christian or Jewish Officer I sure wouldn’t trust any Achmetts in my command. But these days they kind of have to I guess.

Too bad our Military stateside is scrupulously dis-armed and unable to defend themselves. That, I opine, is quite by the regime’s design.
That policy doesn’t slow the Hajis down any though, does it?

Sometimes I suspect that our military is being set up for a Stalinesque “Purge”. Worked pretty well for Stalin, and Deer Leeder knows his Lenin and Stalin pretty cold I’d reckon.

If you don’t know what the Purge of the Red Army in the 1930s was all about, look it up and ask yourself if history ever repeats itself.

It may well be fixin’ to.

It may well have already started.

There’s been lots of violence there. Speculation was around all the drugs they give those who go overseas.

Sez to avoid the historic district of Fort Bragg.

That’s where many headquarters staffed by many senior officers, is located. The old brick post, some call it.

I’ll call it that a muzzie did this and knew where there was a target rich environment. A failure to name the suspect will confirm my guess.

My husband and our family as been stationed at Ft Bragg 2 times.

It has the best of the best Soldiers, and the worst of the worst.

It could be anything...One report said the shooter was an E4. He was probably unhappy about something and directed his rage at their Battalion Commander. I can’t imagine a Battalion Commander having much day to day contact with an E4, so he went to the top of his Chain of Command and skipped over his CO and 1Sg, and LTs.
