Reports: Dayton Shooter Supported Elizabeth Warren, Hated Trump and ICE

Reports: Dayton Shooter Supported Elizabeth Warren, Hated Trump and ICE

In one tweet, Betts wrote he wanted socialism and did not want to “wait for the idiots to finally come around to understanding.”

On Saturday, 24-year-old Connor Betts went on a shooting rampage in Dayton, OH. He killed nine people, including his sister, and injured 27.

Like other murderers, the actions of Betts did not surprise those who knew him. In fact, classmates and acquaintances knew for a long time Betts had it in him to cause so much death. His Twitter account lavished praise on Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and hatred on President Donald Trump along with ICE and the police.

Betts’ social media history not only shows his bloodlust, but his leftist views:

Among the details that surfaced in the search were MySpace photographs of notebook sketches showing odd phrases handwritten in screamo music-style font. The posts appear to be about a decade old.

The sketches, confirmed by a friend of the shooter as authentic, featured nearly illegible writing with legible captions underneath, including “All Shall Be Annihilated,” “Bloodlust,” “Absolute Carnage” and “Bloody Massacre.” confirmed the Twitter account @iamthespookster belonged to Betts. His tweets expressed hatred for Trump and wanted to vote for Sen. Warren in 2020. In one tweet, Betts wrote he wanted socialism and did not want to “wait for the idiots to finally come around to understanding.”

Betts lashed out against QAnon, ICE, and the police in other tweets.

Ballbrook High School kicked Betts out of school upon discovery of a list he made of girls he wanted to rape and murder. Former principal Chris Baker confirmed the school suspended Betts “for causing a lockdown by writing a hit list on a bathroom wall.”

One of those girls, who attended middle school with Betts, told Dayton Daily News the rampage “isn’t a mystery to” her:

The classmate, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the shooter once said he fantasized about tying her up and slitting her throat. The fetish was so macabre that even the shooter admitted he was scared of his thoughts, the woman recalled him saying.

“He knew it wasn’t normal,” the woman said about the decade-old conversation. “He and I talked at length about him getting help.”

The woman said she and her parents told Bellbrook police about the bizarre admission, but the woman said she felt she wasn’t taken seriously, despite the would-be shooter including her on a hit list.

Demoy Howell said Betts never made him feel uncomfortable, but others mentioned to him that the shooter “made them feel threatened or uncomfortable.”

Betts participated in the high school’s Junior ROTC military program, which “seemed to have a calming influence on” him, according to Howell. After the suspension, Howell said Betts “kind of fell off the face of the earth” before the two of them ended up working at the same fast food restaurant:

“He was always a bit of an oddball,” said Howell. “He had a dark sense of humor — jokes about people dying. He would wear all black. I remember sensing a dark energy around him.”

“I think this is less of a hate crime and more of an ‘I hate everybody’ crime,” Howell said. “I honestly feel more comfortable now knowing that he’s gone.” has more statements from Betts’ former classmates:

Chenoa Sandoval wrote on Facebook, “Before the Media portrays this full grown man as an innocent kid who was damaged in high school due to bullying I want to set the record straight right now. Connor Betts had a history of serious harrassment towards fellow female students. Some of which were my friends or siblings of friends. He had a notebook with detailed information on how he wanted to hurt fellow female students.”

A woman named Aubrey Williams wrote, “He loved scaring people. He thought it was funny and got off on it. He scared my sister so bad once, I think he held her in his car against her will. She started crying and he laughed at her. He was sick.” Another wrote, “wasnt our responsibility!! We WERE just kids!! It should not be a kids job to sfop a killer!! People did report him!!”

The Dayton Daily News performed more research on Betts. A background check only brought up “traffic violations, such as speeding, failure to control his vehicle and failure to yield.”

UPDATE 8-6-2019 (by WAJ)

Even left-leaning Snopes says it’s “True” that Betts “has on social media described himself as a leftist, expressed “pro-Satan” views, and has stated support for Elizabeth Warren.”

How long until the Dayton shooting is memory-holed for this inconvenient detail?

Loretta Lynch, former Attorney General of the United States, called for blood in the streets. Looks like she got it.

When you lose in the arena of idea and you a liberal you resort to polemic ad hominem attacks that result in violence.

All responsible Americans must come together and pass laws to prevent Democrats and Bernie supporters from obtaining guns.

The New York Post now supports banning “weapons of war”. Catchy phrase that encompasses ALL firearms. The comparison is 2A at time of muskets versus today’s firearms. The Bill of Rights was not about things but human nature and protection against its failings especially when a government becomes overreaching.

When nations go sour the only “savior” is the military. Who owns the military owns the country and likewise the military owns the country. Valenzuela is off the front page since the military enjoys its benefits under Maduro. Peaceful demonstrations always work? Historically only in countries where governments blink… also think Russia when the military chose to not back the Party. Think China at the Square and now with Hong Kong.

The litany of countries that put all the safeguards in the hands of the powerful goes on and on.

There was parity back in 1700’s but no more. These shooters have violated individual lives and families and have opened the door to violating safeguards we all share.

    The NYP’s main spokeswhatever was interviewed on Fox News today.

    He claimed to be a strong ‘conservative’, but one must remember that a NYFC conservative would be a left wing socialist anywhere else in ‘Fly Over’ country.

Apparently he didn’t much care for his sister, either. I can’t imagine the anguish their parents are experiencing today.

    UnCivilServant in reply to RNJD. | August 5, 2019 at 1:57 pm

    I’m wondering if she was first, and once he started shooting, he kept shooting until shot.

      IIRC at one of the news conferences the police chief indicated that his sister was among the first but not the first.

      From the Police Chief’s conference yesterday afternoon, the first one murdered was someone across the street, directly in the path the deadhead was taking from the lot where his car was parked to the street where he murdered the rest.

      Just me, but that was ‘incidental’ just because that person happened to be in his way and may have seen the AR and started to sound the alarm.

      I’d bet that made the shooter begin before he had planned and that gave to police those extra few seconds to kill him. He nearly made it into the bar and was stopped right at the front door. If he had been closer to the entrance to that bar before he figured he had to start…………..

    Without knowing, I can almost guarantee this guy had no father-figure in his life as he grew up. Also, almost always these spree-killers are on anti-depressants.

    The media these days never tell us about these important details. I believe that the biggest form of media bias is this omission of crucial context.

      bw222 in reply to rdmdawg. | August 5, 2019 at 2:51 pm

      On the contrary, he lived at home and from social media reports his father is extremely anti-Trump and condemned alt-right.

      His father may have played a role in creating this monster. There is no way his parents could have not been aware of the reason behind his suspension from high school.

        RNJD in reply to bw222. | August 5, 2019 at 4:59 pm scrutinized the shooter’s parents’ social media accounts:

        “His parents’ Facebook accounts are active. Their names are Moira and Steve Betts. On Facebook, his mom posted pictures of pumpkins, family, Christmas ornaments, Christian religious statues and a graphic that declared “stop the alt right.” She labeled a photo of Betts and his sister Megan, “My loves.” His dad wrote on Facebook that he was a technical lead for a technologies corporation. Betts’ father posted about net neutrality and funny parody videos. He also shared a video that criticized the rhetoric of President Donald Trump.”

        These are similar to approximately 50% of the Facebook posts I see daily. Slightly political, but certainly not extremist.

        Miles in reply to bw222. | August 6, 2019 at 12:58 am

        Father may have played a role in monster creation?

        Well, except for the collateral damage, Daddy gets applause and a belated Darwin award for removing his DNA from the gene pool.

        Yeah, that may be ‘insensitive’, but how many people have been murdered in the rest of the U.S. over the past weekend that no one except those immediately involved are paying any attention to?

        NdGT was right

One of the abortionists harbored a left-wing ideology, and the other harbored both or trans-spectral (i.e. “moderate”). That said, of course the media only focuses on diversity motives, since it has made great progress to profit from the dissemination and exploitation of color (i.e. low information) judgments.

Doesn’t sound like a “Red Flag” type whackjob.

but others mentioned to him that the shooter “made them feel threatened or uncomfortable.”

Unfortunately this phrase has been reduced to meaninglessness. Police are thrown out of Starbucks because their mere presence makes a customer feel “threatened” or “uncomfortable”. It means nothing.

“He had a dark sense of humor — jokes about people dying. He would wear all black. I remember sensing a dark energy around him.”

Big deal. I wear all black, and I’m pretty sure I have no fantasies about butchering anyone. (I have nothing to say about “dark energy” but I’m skeptical that it can be used as a reliable indicator of trouble.)

Please correct the spelling – it’s Bellbrook. I lived there for seven years. Very nice ex-burb community.

Notice how the media is already playing the Dayton massacre down and hyping El Paso. What kind of man murders his own sister?

    Miles in reply to bw222. | August 6, 2019 at 1:09 am

    What kind of man murders his own sister?

    A brother so incensed by jealousy at who his sister is dating and spending her time with, as opposed to him, that he’ll kill her, as many of her friends as he can and anyone that might get in his way when he decides to ‘go off’.

    I’m no psychologist, but my family has a long history in LE going back to GGFathers and some things in demented human nature just doesn’t change.

1. Minimize gun free zones. Over 95% of mass shootings in the United States are in gun free zones.

2. The whole of “mental health professionals” and their schools should be class actioned for inflicting all of the nutso whack jobs on the rest of us. Most of the mass shooters have histories of mental illnesses. These nuts cannot be drugged into sanity. They are put into society by shrinks with little if any supervision and everyone is so suprised that they snap and kill groups of citizens.

So both shooters are leftists, but it’s Trump’s fault. Got it.

It was decided some decades back to protect juveniles by hiding their identities for crimes they commit as minors and more recently to reduce school discipline.

Clearly, when a juvenile threatens to kill many people, that isn’t the kind of thing that should be hidden. We all deserve to know.

The decline in school discipline I presume comes from government (“public”) schools being required by COURTS to provide “due process” to students. This is a great reason to either remove the jurisdiction of courts to hear such issues or get rid of government schools. I favor the latter because it would solve many more issues we have, such as indoctrination about “climate.”

This fellow had issues and just like at Parkland, his issues were communicated to the wider community where action should have been taken.

There’s no reason to do a blanket cover-up for teenagers. Threats to kill people shouldn’t be covered up until they kill 5 or 10 or 15 people a few years later.

The loss of commonsense combined with Law-itis, has killed soooo many people.

    This sounds good, but exactly WHAT actions could be taken by the “wider community”. And, just how wide is this wider community? Would expect people in El Paso to recognize a shooter who came from Dallas or Sacramento, California?

    Not all of these shooters display signs of dangerous mental illness, prior to committing thee crimes. And, of course, we can not incarcerate people forever without adjudication of guilt in heinous crimes.

    There is only one way to protect against potential crimes of violence. That is to be prepared to actively defend youraelf against violent attack.

Close The Fed | August 5, 2019 at 3:52 pm

Geeze…. my kingdom for an edit button!

*This fellow had issues and just like at Parkland, his issues weren’t communicated to the wider community where action should and could have been taken. Of course, in Parkland, the local police did know, but here they did not.

How The Media Inspires Mass Shooters.
As reported on

A paper presented to the American Psychological Association found the number of mass killings, rampage killings or “mass shootings”, may be doubled by irresponsible media aggrandizement of mass killers. The desire for fame was found to be one of the main motivators of these rampage killers.

Even the far left publication ‘Mother Jones’ has detailed How The Media Inspires Mass Shooters. It’s to their cynical advantage to do this for several reasons. First, they get to grandstand with images of the scene of the shooting, droning endlessly on about the perpetrator and their possible motive, providing hours of live commentary and analysis. Second, all of this is but a virtue signalling telethon for their ratings, where they get to show how much they care whilst condemning 120 million innocent people for not wanting to give up their civil rights. Third, they can incessantly push the national socialist Left’s final solution to the Liberty problem with discussions of how fast and how soon the guns of innocent people should be confiscated for the ‘heinous’ crime of wanting to be able to protect themselves.

In other countries, bombings, mass stabbings, and car attacks frequently kill more people than even the deadliest mass shootings in the United States.

In Japan, a nut killed 33 people with gasoline.

The 2A is worth the risk. Arm honest citizens, and there won’t be another mass shooting – and crime will free-fall. And the likes of obama and lois lerner will have a harder time imposing fascism upon the nation.

JackinSilverSpring | August 5, 2019 at 5:24 pm

Note that the El Paso shooter’s manifesto had very definite Leftists tendencies. The Marxist Stream Media mention that not at all. Anything to stoke anti-Trump sentiments.

You can expect more because the democrats encourage this crap.
What’s the first thing that happens when an illegal alien kills an American?
We get sanctuary cities or states. The democrats run to the pet media and screech that we can’t judge every illegal alien by what that one particular murderer did. What does that tell the unbalanced dem supporters? Crime is ok as long as their a democrat.

What happens when democrats find out ICE is going on raids for illegal aliens who have been adjudicated to be deportable?
Democrats, using government computers and office supplies put out escape ideas if ICE is knocking on their doors and what to say to ICE if they do get caught.

What does it say to their base when democrats support putting live birth babies somewhere “comfortable” while they decide whether to allow the baby to live? Or consider they’re murdering a million babies a year that have heartbeats? Democrats are telling their base it’s just fine to murder, but they act all shocked when it happens and try mightily to shift the blame.

The Dayton Shooter Was The Lead Singer Of A “Pornogrind” Metal Band
The gunman, identified as 24-year-old Connor Betts, was a member of Menstrual Munchies, a three-person band that performed regularly in the Midwest death metal scene

Another armed lunatic and a bunch of unarmed people. We’ve seen this movie before.

He has that Fauxcahontas look in his expression. Warren was way invested into the Occupy movement. Elizabeth Warren fosters evil and hatred.

BerettaTomcat | August 5, 2019 at 10:41 pm

This guy make think he’s on the Right, as the so-called Alt Right (more appropriately named Alt Reich), like Hitper, embrace Socialism. Any true race supremecist would not advocate for a welfare program for his people.

    Pouncekitty in reply to BerettaTomcat. | August 6, 2019 at 11:14 am

    He was a stone DemocRat punk, a socialist who followed the hate speech teaching of Elizabeth Pocahontas and Bernie the Fool. The Alt-Left are the most dangerous people in our country. Any more questions?

The header …. Since the MSM believes the same as the Dayton shooter….and as the Dem Admin run city admin believes …what’s to talk about ?

Mark Kevin’s new books nails it…Unfreedom of the Press. The 1A is perverted… In all ways. Would like to know how many staff in Pravda were sent to gulags for questioning the Purges?

Edward R. Murrow broke McCarthy on his tactics but was blind to the reality of his accusations. Through the years the reality of the Verona files have been obscured to defend the process not the truth.

Mark Levin

The crooked “media” never blame Pocahontas for this, nor did they blame Obozo when shootings happened. All of a sudden, all these current shootings are “Trump’s fault…” Obvious conclusion: MSM is biased, crooked, fake.

The mayor of Dayton is sympathetic to the killer. She is a deranged anti-Trumper.
