The shooter was a white nationalist driven by conspiracy theories about Jews helping immigrants. He set a mosque on fire before shooting up a synagogue.
Attacking a Muslim civil rights org and blaming Muslim women for white nationalist violence is absolutely disgusting. https://t.co/ZqApFGjKW0

In the manifesto primarily comprised of racist rants and quotes from the Bible, John Earnest praises the New Zealand mosque killer, Brenton Tarrant, and the Pittsburgh synagogue murderer, Robert Bowers, and claims that they were his inspiration, and complains about “Jewed-media” pic.twitter.com/P4yFYIN2Cx

My heart breaks for the victims of the synagogue shooting in Poway. Another evil shooting at a place of worship. We must not enable hate, ever.
Anti-Semitism is real and must be condemned. We should also increase funding for federal grants that help protect places of worship. https://t.co/DuDldCDWFl
