Well, if you want a group to speak of the shooter, Mercer having interest in: Now they are talking about European inspirations
(a few web grabs on the site):
In apparent signs of anti-British feeling, killer Chris Harper-Mercer had posted pictures of articles about the IRA.
His email address was ironcross45[at]gmail.com, suggesting he also had sympathies with Nazi Germany.
Guess the Middle East isn't the only place still busy with religious purism among its fringes. The fringes just have small armies with territory there, these days. But it doesn't take much base in territory,nor any specific religious background, to make a shooting.
He might have even been more generally anti-religious?
In a dating profile apparently belonging to Mercer on the Spiritual Passions website under the username Ironcross45, the non-smoking teetotaller described himself as "shy at first, but warm up quickly, better in small groups".
He listed hobbies including the internet and "killing zombies", described his politics as "conservative, republican" and said he was spiritual but not religious.
Let's see, another report
... Into Nazi uniforms? Ah, yes:
On [his MySpace] profile he stated that he "doesn't like organised religion".
So maybe none, would have been a better survival answer when he asked about religion? Just a guess. But much of rural Oregon is pretty Christian right, as I understand it.
And then there's just fame, or a sort of blaze of glory ideal:
He also appears to have written a blog post under the username hosted on a torrent site about Vester Lee Flanagan, who shot dead journalists Alison Parker and Adam Ward.
He chillingly wrote - 'seems the more people you kill, the more you're in the limelight'.
The post says: "I have noticed that so many people like him are all alone and unknown, yet when they spill a little blood, the whole world knows who they are.
To which people usually say, turn off the news let's not talk about them so much and they won't try it so often... But that ignores the questions of where they might have been located in the overall society (and its sometimes strange historical imagination of various military and murder events, as well as of religion all over the place!) to begin with.
