One possibly bad impact caused by this despicable event?

Trump wins the presidency. I am sure is already planning how to capitalize on this. I only hope he goes too far and pisses all of America off,

We know the NRA is meeting and planning a response. We can be sure Mitch McConnell and John Boe . . . Paul Ryan are plotting on how to keep gun control off the legislature's agenda. And we know that the vast portion of America are in tears and mourning.

What a fucked up time to live in.

2. Nope

He has a pretty firm hold already on people who sympathise with that kind of shit, this won't move the needle much at all.

3. Nope. We as a nation are much smarter than that. He's a one trick pony.

4. I think the majority of the country will gravitate towards the adult in the room if they are scared.

 

Twitter-fingers isn't it.

5. It definitely helps Trump, I agree

not sure it will have that big of an impact, that it swings the election, but if another major Islamic terror attack happens sometime near the election, then I would agree with your prediction.

13. It galvanizes his core in two ways.

They can claim that his ideas are right, and it energizes the racists, sexists, anti-Muslim, anti-immigration crowd.

7. Well, then Donald Trump opened his mouth.

 

Or his Twitter, in this case.

10. Right now I'm still stuck on the dead and wounded.

I wish people would stop putting politics ahead of these lost lives, and the devastated lives of their survivors.

11. The nearby mosque that invited the homophobe

to come speak--the one who said to murder gays--is not going to have it easy. Just like Christian churches that advocate this shite, Muslims, Jews and those of any other faith are responsible for the hate-filled, divisive, terroristic messages preached in their sacred spaces.

They should be condemned for allowing that asshole to encourage this murder.

If this stuff continues, Muslims will help Trump get elected.

What a fucked-up bunch of special snowflakes we've got just making life suck all around.

12. Trying to capitalize on this would be a no-win for Trump

The only things his followers hate worse than Muslims are gays. In their eyes, a bunch of gays "got what they deserved" and then a Muslim "got what he deserved," and the only thing the Muslim did wrong was not killing enough gays.

If he tries exploiting this for personal gain he will be attacked by people who think the Muslim was doing God's work.

Excuse me while I get some disinfectant to wipe the hate I just typed off my keyboard.
