Patnet Tribalists Livid They Cannot Place Paddock

By somecrappynumber following x   2017 Oct 2, 8:32pm 6,831 views   52 comments   watch   nsfw   quote     share    


Despite the initial claims from some overzealous patnetters, its now 24 hours and we still have no idea what was Paddock's motivation for the shooting. This is mindblowing in the patnet universe where everyone has a tribe and its just a matter of labeling what tribe the person belonged to. Consider:

Little evidence he was violent
Little evidence he was a criminal
Little evidence he was ex military
Little evidence he was a liberal
Little evidence he was a conservative
Little evidence he was political
Little evidence he was a bear
Little evidence he was a bull
Little evidence he used social media
Little evidence he was religious
Little evidence he was atheist
Little evidence he was a communist
Little evidence he was a Trump Supporter
Little evidence he was a Hillary Supporter
Little evidence he was a Muslim
Little evidence he was a SJW
Little evidence he was a Skinhead
Little evidence he was ANTIFA
Little evidence he was STEM
Little evidence he was Red Pill
Little evidence he was MGTOW
Little evidence he was a renter
Little evidence he was an underwater homeowner
Little evidence he had Ebola
Little evidence he was a globalist
Little evidence he was a conspiracy theorist
Little evidence he was influenced by ISIS
Little evidence he tried to trap men
Little evidence he made up fake rape claims
Little evidence he was an illegal immigrant
Little evidence he was a terrorist
Little evidence he was a climate denialist
Little evidence he was a special snowflake
Little evidence he had a cockeyed arm
Little evidence he was a realtor

What other tribes are there which I am missing?

The American Bar Association has convened an impromptu Ambulance Chaser's Convention in the lobby of the Mandalay, with much merriment and ropey strings of saliva dripping on 5000 dollar suits.

In true Las Vegas spirit, they will be holding a lottery to see which firm gets first crack at the victims and their families.

Yes, you missed the one that actually matters. He was a gun nut. He had an extensive gun collection. This is the one thing the FBI has confirmed. So we have a tribe to blame.

Another stupid statement from piggy. There's like zero chance this had anything to do with ISIS. More likely he blew his money in the casino and wanted revenge.

A reasonable guess. Possibly side effects from SSRI prescription but hushed because of impact to equity markets.

Additionally I suspected a conspiracy of silence to that effect in the case of Robin Williams' death.

Dis you forget that ISIS claimed responsibility? Perhaps you didn't hear that he sent $100k to the phillipines where ISIS is currently exploding in popularity (see what I did there:)). Or perhaps you didn't see the sheriffs recent statement. that he may have been radicalized.

ISIS is a likely theory.

You probably want to rethink your statement. OR will you admit your tribalism blinded you from the truth right in front of your eyes when its proven he had connected to radicals?

My first question is which (prescription) Drugs was he on? Not so easily answered.



Nearly 70 percent of Americans are on at least one prescription drug, and more than half take two, Mayo Clinic and Olmsted Medical Center researchers say. Antibiotics, antidepressants and painkilling opioids are most commonly prescribed, their study found.

Leftists and ISIS are partners in hating of the US and the west. A whack job being first an Anti-trumper, then Antifa supporter, and eventually ISIS is possible.

I don't see any ISIS. When we find the Filipina 'roommate' we'll know more.

I do see genetic psychopathy and/or a desire to 'get revenge' and 'go out in a blaze of glory'.

Funny thing is, he may have botched his suicide and flopped like a fish, drowning in his own blood for a good 20 minutes.

No, I didn't. I also didn't forget that
1. There is zero evidence that he's associated with ISIS.
2. No intelligence agency believes there is a link.
3. He does not remotely fit the profile of an ISIS recruit. He's too old. He's not a Muslim. He's white. He's not from the Middle East.
4. ISIS isn't known for its honesty.
5. False information about the shooting spread immediately and quickly.

Do you really trust ISIS? Are you really so foolish as to state on the record you believe that ISIS is responsible for this shooting? Will you be man enough to admit you were wrong when the evidence proves otherwise?

The problem with taking a stand without evidence to support it is that you have to eat crow when the evidence comes out contradicting what you claimed.

But hey, double down on this bet if you like.

CBOEtrader says

Once more conservatives demonstrate their mathematical illiteracy. The converse of a true statement is not necessarily a true statement. All cats have tails does not imply everything with a tail is a cat. ISIS is popular in the Philippians does not imply that most Philippians are associated or sympathetic to ISIS. You are jumping to a conclusion based on pure speculation. You don't even have circumstantial evidence.

It's far more likely that the shooter simply wanted to get what money he had left out of the country so that it would not be seized by the government after his crime was committed. So he sent what he had to his lover and then went on a rampage to pay the casino back for taking his money. The most reasonable guess -- and this is still a guess at this point -- is that the shooter was trying to financially harm the casino by making people scared to go to it and he did so for petty revenge. There is little evidence that has come out so far, but what evidence there is supports only this conjecture. The FBI has stated that he spent a lot of money at the casino, but did not say how much he lost or won.

The problem with your entire line of thinking is that you want ISIS to be blamed so your looking for and only for evidence that supports that preference. This is not how an investigation of anything should be done. You need to learn to be objective and dispassionate.

Oh honey, it is you who are being tribal. I don't give a shit what the underlying motive of the shooting is. It changes absolutely nothing. We still won't get gun control. We still need to address terrorism and religion. We still need to reverse Republican policies that gutted mental health care. We still need to deal with domestic terrorism. Gambling still causes problems for individuals and society. This crime changes absolutely nothing no matter the cause. It's just one more of countless mass shootings. The next mass shooting won't change anything either. America never fucking learns from these tragedies.

But it's evidently damn important to you that ISIS gets blamed for this shooting regardless of whether or not that's true. And that makes you tribal.

All conservatives hate American and their fellow Americans. This includes the left, the right, and Islamists. Those three tribes are all essentially the same. The only differences are arbitrary and unimportant cultural preferences. Their tactics and values are the same. They are all deplorable for the exact same reasons.

Only liberals are good people.

CBOEtrader says

Given that he had a huge stockpile of guns and ammo, he's far more likely to have supported or voted for Trump than Hillary and there's no chance he's a Bernie supporter.

When it comes out he supported Trump and wore a MAGA hat, will you be man enough to admit you were wrong? Will you then condemn your tribe for the same guilt by association or will you demonstrate pure hypocrisy and say he's not representative of your tribe? We all know the answer is the later, but hey, prove me wrong.

Just pathetic logical thinking skills yet again Dan. Your zero % chance and zero evidence statement is obviously untrue.

You can choose to ignore the evidence or suggest it isn't a likely theory. You can NOT however suggest there is zero evidence.
