Dayton shooter Connor Betts may be antifa’s first mass killer

Andy Ngo, New York Post

Betts, the Dayton shooter, didn’t leave behind a manifesto, his extensive social-media footprint provides clues as to what may have inspired him. Federal investigators announced Tuesday that they are looking into his exploration of violent ideologies. Betts had long expressed support for antifa accounts, causes and individuals. That would be the loose network of militant leftist activists who physically attack anyone to the right of Mao in the name of “anti-fascism.” In particular, Betts promoted extreme hatred of American border enforcement. When it comes to far-left violent extremism, there is a gaping blind spot in the mainstream discourse.
