Questions Remain In The Aftermath Of The Conservative White Christian Terrorist Bomber

Mark Conditt, the terrorist bomber from Texas, blew himself up as a SWAT team surrounded him. We know little about him except he was a  conservative white Christian man who harbored antiabortion views and murdered two African Americans from prominent families and injured multiple others.

  1. Why didn’t the bombings receive widespread coverage, despite Austin Police asking for the public’s help,  until two white men were injured last Sunday?
  2. It appears Mark Conditt had ties to Austin, Texas, what were those ties?
  3. Who was the package or packages addressed to that exploded at the FedEx facility in Schertz, Tx?
  4. Can his friends or family tell us more about him?
  5. Was he employed, unemployed or a student?
  6. Did he belong to a radicalized far-right group?
  7. Is there evidence he was not working alone?
  8. How could a person who claims to be pro-life murder innocent people?

America is at a crossroads. Do we make America white by minimizing the crimes of white men and incarcerate people of color?  Or do we make America great by labeling African countries “shitholes”  or the Muslim religion terrorist?

Why do we label members of #BlackLivesMatter who protest violence terrorists or Black Identity Extremists? Why do we continue to label white conservative Christians, the overwhelming perpetrators of domestic terrorism,  mentally ill or lone wolf members of a hate group?   Why aren’t conservative white Christians labeled terrorists when they terrorize Americans?  

We need a national discussion of these double standards.   We need to break down the barriers that separate us and recognize most of us yearn for the same things:  peace and love as well as life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

  1. I remember when that situation in Austin happened. It was infuriating with how much coverage was(n’t) covered about this bomber. Isn’t it a case of abysmal irony when people of that persuasion can kill others and there’s little public background information, but individuals of a different skin color can be killed and all of a sudden their life story (most likely slandered) is there instantly? I hate double standards whether it involves little things like film plagiarism controversies or bigger things like criminal activity.

    1. I hate double standards and hypocrisy. It disturbs me that we are the champions of human rights, calling for regime change and invading countries b/o alleged human rights abuses and terrorism. All the while we are terrorizing people of color and now immigrants.

      There are white men murdering POC for no reason and courts calling this justified. And many Americans don’t see how they are set up for a bleak future.

      Many whites believe as long as it’s blacks and immigrants it’s okay. Our govt and their thugs are so confident of their deception. We’ll see.

  2. Angela I would like to know his family background. Did he have psychological problems? Was he or any family member in the military? Could this have been an MK ultra operation (mind control)?
    Did he really blow himself up? I don’t think we will ever know the true story, I just feel bad for the victims and their families. I myself am tired of talking about the in your face injustice. The barriers are of a spiritual nature and go way back, change surely should have been seen by now. There is only one answer, repent and call on the Most High, fix families and pull together as a nation within a nation!

    1. Hi Rudy, Great questions! It’s interesting that we accept the fact that we will never know the truth.

      I also feel awful for the victim’s families. If we have so many questions, I imagine they have even more.

      How to form that nation?

      1. How to form a nation? Well Angela good question! When I find out I’ll let you know.
        Just kidding. This is one idea. So-called black people in this country individually has no wealth. It was simply amazing how we came together for the black panther movie. What if we could pool our money in a city that is predominantly AA say like Baltimore and replace theirs water pipes. Build up the excitement like with the black panther, we could raise at least $250 million in 3-6 months. Not only would be helping our people with the lead crisis but what a moral uplift for us. I believe it can happen. But of course we have to believe it can be done.

          1. We don’t have much choice but to keep on pushing on, besides this would be a public project. Something done for the city. By the way the estimated cost $55 million. As you know Angela this country doesn’t want to pay us the money that is owed us even though they stole $21 trillion over the last 20 years. Let’s start small. How about asking for no interest home loans. They wouldn’t be giving us anything and home ownership is wealth building. Just throwing out some ideas. Have a great day Angela!
