FRIEND: Navy Yard Shooter Liberal, Supported Obama
Breitbart ^ | John Nolte

Posted on 09/17/2013 2:01:33 PM PDT by sunmars

Tuesday, on CNN’s “The Lead with Jake Tapper,” Michael Ritrovato spoke at length about his friend, suspected Navy Yard shooter Aaron Alexis. After expressing his condolences to the victims and their families, Ritrovato then expressed his shock over the actions of a man he described as being “like a brother to me” and a “good-natured guy.”

Ritrovato went on to explain that two of them had a close relationship based in part on their differences, specifically race and politics. Alexis was black, Ritrovato is white. Ritrovato described himself as conservative and Alexis is “more of a liberal type” who supported Barack Obama:

I called this incident before about 09/05/13. Syria being the big issue, something was gonna happen to take attention away from it. Shooting or a bombing, w/i 7 days of 9/11/13. I’m deeply disturbed by the fact that I was right.

This is why they are pushing the mental health issue so hard. If he had been a conservative they would be stressing his political affiliation.

Truth be told a weak mind is symptomatic of Obama supporters so I guess they aren't really hiding anything.

The difference between the lamestream media and us is: if he were a Republican it would be a primary descriptive. “Alexis, a Republican former Marine officer from Texas...” But he happens to support Obama so we keep quiet, pity the fool and chalk it up to his general insanity.

“The last time they spoke was by phone, where the Alexis talked about his frustration with the company he worked for. Apparently, the company was “slow to pay.” There have been other media reports about Alexis being with upset his company regarding some expenses incurred during a trip to Japan.”

******

So you kill a few innocent people and get yourself shot dead. That really helped things along!

I daresay that explains his choice of weapons.

No assault rifles for him, by golly, he chose to kill people with a shotgun that even Joe Biden wouldn't have a problem with.

Wouldn’t you expect that if he was bummed about something in his company that he would have unloaded closer to the source of his “problem.”? I haven’t figgered out yet whether his company had an actual office/staff in building 197? Bbbuuuut then that requires some level of clear thinking-—not really in evidence since he shot thru his noisy neighbor’s ceiling,floor, whatever.

Notice the look on Tapper’s face when he heard that Alexis is a liberal..hopefully Tapper was wearing dark pants, he looked like he was about to soil them. Sandy Hook, Santa Monica College shooter, Ft Hood, Aurora Colorado, now Washington Navy Yard, every single one of those shooters had one thing in common..ALL LIBERAL..maybe there should be gun control, for liberals, since obviously they cant handle a gun

A Budhist kills civilians at a Navy Yard and the injured and deceased’s relatives will be treated as if they were wounded in war.

A Muslim shouts “Alla Akbar” while shooting soldiers at Ft. Hood and they get squat.

The elephant in the room, that no one will ever bring up because it’s the ultimate taboo....

The guy has a history of being an a$$hole. I would bet a million, if I had it, that all of his voices, PTSD, blah blah blah blah...was just him gaming the system. He allegedly had a not so sterling career in the Navy. Imagine that.

Buuutttttt, because he was a BLACK MAN, no one was willing to challenge him or deal with him, for fear of getting in trouble themselves. So, they just passed him on to the next person to deal with, until........

No surprise here. A single glance at his skin tells you with 95 percent certainty that he was an Obama supporter. BTW, 95 percent certainty is the same level of certainty that the IPCC says that your SUV causes catastrophic global warming - a sure thing.

Just like all of the other mass shooters.

Mass shooters are:

Democrats or children of democrats (if too young to register)

On psychoactive drugs - usually antidepressants.

Also:

NONE of them have been members of the NRA. None of them have been Republicans. None of them have attended Church on a regular basis.

Alexis's victims were white, right? Reverse that one - a "white conservative kills 12 blacks in a gun rampage". The MSM would have a field day with the race and political party - it would be front and center in every story.

In 1865 a Democrat shot and killed Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States .
In 1963 a radical left wing communist shot and killed John F. Kennedy, President of the United States.
In 1975 a left wing radical Democrat fired shots at Gerald Ford, President of the United States.
In 1983 a registered Democrat shot and wounded Ronald Reagan.
In 1984 James Huberty a disgruntled Democrat shot and killed 22 people in a McDonalds restaurant.
In 1986 Patrick Sherril a disgruntled Democrat shot and killed 15 people in an Oklahoma post office.
In 1990 James Pough a disgruntled Democrat shot and killed 10 people at a GMAC office.
In 1991 George Hennard a disgruntled Democrat shot and killed 23 people in a Lubys cafeteria.
In 1995 James Daniel Simpson a disgruntled Democrat shot and killed 5 coworkers in a Texas laboratory.
In 1999 Larry Asbrook a disgruntled Democrat shot and killed 8 people at a church service.
In 2001 a left wing radical Democrat fired shots at the White House in a failed attempt to kill George W. Bush, President of the US.
In 2003 Douglas Williams a disgruntled Democrat shot and killed 7 people at a Lockheed Martin plant.
In 2007 a registered Democrat named Seung - Hui Cho shot and killed 32 people in Virginia Tech .
In 2010 a mentally ill registered Democrat named Jared Lee Loughner shot Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and killed 6 others.
In 2011 a registered Democrat named James Holmes went into a Colorado movie theater and shot and killed 12 people.
In 2012 Andrew Engeldinger a disgruntled Democrat shot and killed 7 people in Minneapolis.
On 9/16/2013, another mentally ill liberal, Aaron Alexis, killed 12 innocents at the Navy Yard in Washington DC.

One could go on, but you get the point, even if the media does not.

Clearly, there is a problem with Democrats having guns.

No NRA members, No Tea Party members, or No Republican conservatives are/were involved.

SOLUTION: It should be illegal for Democrats to own guns.
