Witnesses say the white gunman who killed nine people at the historic Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, S.C., was quite vocal about his motives: He wanted to kill black people.
Sylvia Johnson, whose cousin the Rev. Clementa Pinckney was one of three ministers killed in the church, said a survivor of the horror told her the shooter muttered, "I have to do it. You rape our women and you're taking over our country. And you have to go." In Charleston, a slaughter in the sanctuary In Charleston, a slaughter in the sanctuary
Facebook photos and other evidence suggest that Dylann Roof, 21, who has confessed to the killings, has a keen interest in white supremacy organizations and "Southern heritage" movements.
As a history buff, I hate to see haters give "Southern heritage" a bad name. Trouble is, some Southern heritage fans don't want to accept that the "War of Northern Aggression," as some call it, ended 150 years ago.
Yet even before Roof's name was announced to the world, the tragedy at Emanuel AME Church immediately raised three disturbing questions in my head. They were the same three questions that came to my mind after similar tragedies at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, at the movie theater in Aurora, Colo., at Columbine High School in Colorado and others that come painfully to mind:
Who let this gunman get his hands on a deadly weapon?
How did he slip through our mental health services net?
Is he part of a larger terrorist conspiracy or is he a lone

The New Black Panther Party, the Nation of Islam, CAIR, and and a hundred thousand other thugs in this country want to kill white people. What is the real difference here?
Only an IDIOT would believe the ILLEGAL ALIEN IN CHIEF is giving up on “Gun Control” !
I laughed out loud at that one.
Chicago’s had some of the toughest gun laws in the nation... and some of the highest murder rates.
We have nothing to learn from them.
Oh he's giving up on doing it legally he wants to do it by dictate.
President Barack Obama looked uncommonly and wearily depressed by this tragedy.
Well ... it didn’t last long. He was shortly thereafter off to multiple fundraisers ($33K a head) with the Hollywood crowd and then the golf course in Palm Springs for the weekend.
Maybe because Zero cannot actually enforce any gun laws that would ever make a difference?
Obama’s chief of staff, VaJarJar, was just recently bemoaning the fact this administration has not made any headway on federal gun laws. Guess she’s likely dancing in the victims’ blood for getting another chance...
Apparently he bought it some months prior, and passed his NICS background check due to not having any criminal convictions at the time of the check.
Same here. The only reason the chicago tribune has for such a statement is that the gun control is not fast or aggressive enough for them.
When the U.S. finally wakes up and stops electing "American Idol" candidates these presidential dictates can be reversed by a real American president easier than the Fraud-In-Chief shoved them down our throats.
How did he slip through our mental health services net?
He's not crazy.
He was, however, under felony indictment which is a prohibitive factor under the 1968 Gun Control Act that NICS is supposed to check for.
Yet another government bureaucracy that can't do its job right. Imagine that.
Yeah. I keep getting emails talking about the new laws he has planned. He has not and will not change his mind about guns.
The New Black Panther Party, Nation of Islam, CAIR, and a hundred thousand other thugs in this country want to kill white people.
What is the real difference here?
Well, I'd say one real difference is that the New Black Panther Party, Nation of Islam, CAIR, and a hundred thousand other thugs in this country haven't sent any of their members into a church to start gunning down worshippers based on the color of their skin.
They've probably toyed with the idea, though, and as such, these groups might very well be guilty of inciting such acts.
But this stupid punk ass white thug did more than just toy with the idea. He did walk into a a church and did gun down people based on the color of their skin.
So I'd say that is the "real difference" here...
This fool tried his best to set back race relations in this country in a tangible and murderous way. And he probably succeeded to a certain degree.
Apparently, his "goal" was to start a race war. Such ignorance is breathtaking, and we're all fortunate that the overwhelming majority of Americans, whether black, white, yellow, brown, or red, are light years beyond any such insanity.
Why are most Americans so far beyond such insanity?
Because Americans instinctively know that no matter how different we are, and no matter how much we disagree on so many things, we're still one People. Our commonalities far outshine our differences.
What this kid did, there's really not much that could be more despicable. In one fell swoop, he managed to outpace all those race-baiting organizations, individuals, and even rage-filled criminal thugs.
And that takes some doing...
I thought a relative gave it to him. I could be thinking of someone else.
Initial reports were that his father gave it to him. Later reports indicated that he purchased the gun himself.
Liberals are very busy looking for any solution except the one that the facts and moral clarity bring them to. The people at the Chicago Tribune, who fought passing “shall issue” concealed carry for decades are lamenting that Obama gives up on gun control laws, yet they are all part of the same liberal crowd who has given up on the minority youth in their own communities.
These communities are now suffering from several generations of moral and spiritual decline and the only solution is to restore morality and healthy spirituality, a solution that is so contrary to the very worldview of secular progressives whose answer to everything always converges on socialism, and the more socialism the better, as long as the same elites are able to be in charge.
These liberals have so much blood on their hands as the indirect consequences of the socialism they are frantic to impose. The only good news is that they are restrained from going Full Stalin and actually liquidating their opponents.
Liberalism is not just an alternative form of world view. It is an evil world view. We no longer have the luxury of entertaining liberals by allowing them to have their way. They must be opposed at every turn and by every means possible.
Obama has beaten him to it.
I understand your compelling need to point out the difference in action between what I mentioned and what this person did. The fact is that insanity which he collectively concentrated in one act has been replicated every hour of every day in this country by blacks on white people. They just don't get mentioned or publicized as race crime.. It's a "knock out game" or "polar bear hunting" or a hundred other reasons except the real reason. To pretend this doesn't happen and to gloss over it is cognitive dissonance in itself.
I am not about to apologize for this man's insanity nor am I going to wash away all the other racial hatred blacks heap on whites, either. It is all insanity.
