Buffalo Tops Friendly Market, Saturday May 14th, 2022

When the tragic incident occurred, we were all captivated by the incident. As news and information streamed in, the conduit to that information was the Main Stream Media (MSM), at least at the beginning of the incident. Across the MSM ideological spectrum, one thing was near-immediately clear, it was racially motivated. Question: Does racially motivated mean ideologically motivated? And, if so, what ideology?

The first thing that struck me about the Buffalo shooting was the assumption that the shooter, Payton Gendron, was from the right side of the ideological spectrum. In short the media within hours of the event assumed he was a conservative. In all honesty, as a conservative, that was my reaction.

Then, an overwhelming feeling of guilt struck me. A tragic even occurred, people died, families are suffering, and a community is mourning, and I am worried about the ideology of the shooter, my stake in the shooting, and (dare I say) my responsibility as a white male conservative (aka being gaslit)? Some conservatives may disagree with having an internal sense of responsibility, but I believe it's human nature to have compassion and empathy for others while constantly challenge one's self sense of morality.

I felt compelled to publicly mention it in a Tweet (above). As much as I wanted to include a byte about ideology, the media, and my feelings, I realized two things;

  • It's a time of mourning, injecting my feelings at this time is (extremely) selfish and uncompassionate
  • The story is still evolving, we were only a few hours into the event and a lot was still to be discovered

Fast forward to Monday May 16th, once again this happened on Saturday May 14th, and news and information is becoming much more readily available. Social media channels are scurrying to suspend and terminate Payton Gendron's account, they are scurrying to "secure" a proposed MANIFESTO.

In the back of my mind I am still feeling a tinge of "white guilt by association", just like the radical left wants people like me to feel. I just want answers - HOW CAN A TRUE CONSERVATIVE BE RESPONSIBLE FOR SUCH A TRAGIC EVENT? It is my wholehearted belief that conservatives hold the moral high ground in the ideological culture war. So how do you reconcile "moral high ground" in the backdrop of such a tragic and unnecessary event if indeed the shooter was a conservative?

THEN, new information starts to trickle in about the proposed Manifesto containing information that the shooter was a leftist. In the age of technology and social media, independent partisan news just can't be trusted (sorry, not sorry).

After the exchange above, a link to the Manifesto was provided and I got to review first hand the Manifesto!

Excerpts from the Manifesto

The first three (3) pages of the manifesto are just that, a manifesto. Payton Gendron obviously has been indoctrinated into extremist Supremacy ideology. I usually detest using the term "White Supremacy" on grounds of it being so poorly and loosely defined however this is clearly a case of someone off his rocker.

Fast forward to page 9, via the shooter's own admission he is more appropriate defined as a Bernie supporter than anything else; "Mild-moderate Authoritarian left populist". More bluntly, Bernie had a bigger influence ideologically than Tucker.

On page 34, Gendron attacks Libertarianism as "largely pioneered by Jews" and cites profoundly respected classical econonists Ludwig von Mises, Milton Friedman, and philosoper Ayn Rand, amongh others. This is hardly a conservative right-leaning perspective.

Pages 157 and 158 are balanced criticisms of both right and left worldviews, he is (IMHO) equally critical of both sides of the ideological spectrum. These pages are well worth reading.

One thing that struck me was that the shooter dedicated 30 pages (24-54) to Anti-Semitism and 100 pages to weaponry (57-157). 120/180 pages dedicated to weaponry and anti-semitism, and relatively small amounts dedicated to Black Americans, yet a predominantly Black American community was the target of this evil.

Why is that?

The only conclusion I can draw, and I believe the common sense conclusion, is that Black American's are easy to identify as a target. Humans, being instinctively tribal, when confronted with a perceived "fight or flight" threat may resort to their primal fight instincts targeting people that do not have the same attributes.

The argument that angry and disenfranchised people seek to avenge their resentment against people not like them seems to strongly apply in this case.

Takeaway

Resorting to the tweets published on Saturday and Monday above, the true victims are those that lost their lives, the families of those that lost their life, and the community of Buffalo. While indeed I feel a sense of guilt for briefly deflecting attention away from the families and people of Buffalo, a broader message to the masses that we can't let tit-for-tat ideological differences and arguments consume everyone's everyone's waking moment.

This all out culture war and primal drive to blame and find evidence to shame the ideologic enemy is a deep seated cancer in our society. I, for one, am always willing to exchange ideas, listen to dissenting views, and make strides toward the better good of society and man as a whole. Are you?
