Florida yoga studio shooter was racist rightwing ‘incel’ who had raged about women online: report

Published

on

The Florida man who murdered two women at a yoga studio on Friday was a far-right extremist who posted videos where he espoused racist and misogynistic views, BuzzFeed reports.

Scott Beierle, 40, attacked a yoga studio in Tallahassee, Florida, killing two and injuring five others before killing himself.

Beierle was known to be violent to women, having been arrested for grabbing them in the past.

In videos posted online and found by BuzzFeed, he identified himself as an involuntarily celibate, or “incel.” He is the second incel to kill innocent people in Florida this year.

Back in 2014, Beierle posted several YouTube videos of himself “offering extremely racist and misogynistic opinions.”

He called women “sluts” and “whores” and “lamented ‘the collective treachery’ of girls he went to high school with,” Buzzfeed reports.

He was also mad that some women preferred black men to him and recorded songs raging about this.

Yoga pants are seen as an affront to the incel community, where they are seen a cruel reminder of the men’s inadequacy.

According to Betsy Woodruff at the Daily Beast, the NRA owes $1.6 million to their vendor, Ackerman McQueen, they've used for advertising for years. The company is the one responsible for doing the media for NRATV, the group's streaming service for pro-gun television.

The two have had a long relationship and err on the side of quiet privacy, which Woodruff said on MSNBC, shows just how acrimonious the battle has become.

Published

Left-wing filmmaker Michael Moore thinks that Democrats had better get ready for a very tough fight in the 2020 presidential election.

Even though polls continue to show that President Donald Trump is historically unpopular, Moore believes that the president's base is fired up to reelect him and will crawl over glass to vote for him again next year.

In particular, Moore was struck by the massive enthusiasm that greeted the president at his big kickoff rally in Orlando, Florida.
