While it’s been widely reported that the Ohio Shooter was once suspended for keeping a “hit list” and a “rape list,” the mainstream media has widely not covered the bombshell revelations contained in Connor Betts’ now suspended Twitter account.
Among his tweets were Betts showing support for Elizabeth Warren, “The Squad” and Socialism.
Per Heavy, Heavy confirmed the Twitter page through multiple verification factors, including a matching tattoo on both a page selfie and prominent news outlets’ pictures of Connor Betts; several family linkages to the page; similar photos, including of him and the family dog, on the page and family members’ verified accounts, including its name; and references to college and growing up in Ohio and Dayton.
On the Twitter page, Connor Betts indicated he’d vote for Elizabeth Warren for president but not Kamala Harris, responding to a person’s tweet suggesting they be co-presidents. “Nahh, but only cuz Harris is a cop – Warren I’d happily vote for,” he wrote.
He shared a post that showed Donald Trump and referred to a global fascist movement.
He also wrote that he enjoyed anime, railed against ICE and the industrial revolution, and made references to Satan. In May, he tweeted, “You’ll never be rid of me. I’ll haunt your life like a fucking vengeful spirit.” He added, “My Horoscope Just Reads ‘Doom.’” He shared posts of people outed for possibly being at a KKK rally in Dayton and wrote, “Know your enemies.”
He shared an article that criticized Democratic leaders like Nancy Pelosi for not supporting Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and Ayanna Pressley. “Read it,” he wrote.
Some of his tweets were more philosophical. He wrote, “The time people say it is vs the time it feels like? I’m taking feelings over facts any time.” He was interested in the Area 51 Facebook page, writing, “There’s a fb group about storming area 51.”
He shared posts about “concentration camps” at the border and wrote, “Cut the fences down. Slice ICE tires. Throw bolt cutters over the fences.”
He retweeted a post from another person about stealing from “right wingers” at a Trump rally.
More information is being reported on Connor Betts, 24, the deceased gunman who shot and killed nine people and wounded 27 others in a mass shooting early Sunday morning.
A Twitter account appearing to belong to Betts showed he supported socialist causes and was a supporter of presidential candidate Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, according to Heavy.
The Twitter biography reads, “he/him / anime fan / metalhead / leftist / i’m going to hell and i’m not coming back.” Tweets include praising Satan and “F— John McCain” after late Arizona Sen. John McCain died.
He also reportedly criticized American gun laws, tweeting in 2018, “This is America: Guns on every corner, guns in every house, no freedom but that to kill” and tweeted to Ohio Sen. Rob Portman on the day of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School mass shooting, “@robportman hey rob. How much did they pay you to look the other way? 17 kids are dead. If not now, when?”
On the Fourth of July, in response to a tweet on “easy ways to help close detention camps,” the account linked to Betts replied, “Cut the fences down. Slice ICE tires. Throw bolt cutters over the fences.”
Betts reportedly did not want to vote for California Sen. Kamala Harris because “Harris is a cop,” but “Warren I’d happily vote for.”
“I want socialism, and i’ll not wait for the idiots to finally come round to understanding,” read one tweet.
