The Dayton shooter had an extreme left Twitter feed
[CNN] A Twitter account that appears to belong to Dayton shooter Connor Betts retweeted extreme left-wing and anti-police posts as well as tweets supporting the violent protest group Antifa.

The most recent tweet on the @iamthespookster account was on Aug. 3, the day of the shooting, when he retweeted a post saying, "Millenials have a message for the Joe Biden generation: hurry up and die." He also retweeted support for Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.

Under the Twitter handle @iamthespookster, the user description says, "He/him / anime fan / metalhead / leftist / I’m going to hell and I’m not coming back." One tweet used the hashtag #HailSatan.

In the hours before the Dayton shooting, the account "liked" several tweets about the El Paso shooting, including one supporting gun control and others that called the El Paso shooting suspect a "terrorist," and a "white supremacist."

The account also retweeted posts against US Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, including one that said, "These people are monsters," as well as multiple posts condemning police, and supporting Antifa. There were also many tweets of selfies, photos with a friend and ordinary memes and non-political content.

The account is no longer active, but Twitter would not confirm to CNN whether it had removed the account, only saying in a statement, "We're proactively removing content that violates our policies and will be engaged with law enforcement, as appropriate."

#1 ...What Dayton shooter? Sorry, but we're too busy #resisting in El Paso.

#2 A favorite riposte of the "resistance" is "He's not my president! He doesn't speak for me!!" Pro Second Amendment people should toss this right back by always saying "That (mass shooter) nutbag doesn't speak or act for me!" Of course, the NRA is currently too busy wallowing in an internal flustercluck to put such a message out there.
