Trump Rally Gunman Was 'Definitely Conservative,' Classmate Recalls
Published Jul. 14, 2024 8:36PM EDT


A former classmate of the 20-year-old man who tried unsuccessfully to kill former President Donald Trump at a Pennsylvania rally on Saturday recalled him being staunchly to the right of the political spectrum. “He definitely was conservative,” Max R. Smith told The Philadelphia Inquirer of Thomas Crooks. “It makes me wonder why he would carry out an assassination attempt on the conservative candidate.” Smith shared an American history class with Crooks, and remembered a mock debate where their teacher made students stand on one side of the classroom or another to signal their allegiance. “The majority of the class were on the liberal side, but Tom, no matter what, always stood his ground on the conservative side,” Smith said. “That’s still the picture I have of him. Just standing alone on one side while the rest of the class was on the other.” Crooks died in the assassination attempt. Trump, who suffered a minor injury to the ear, was “fine” Sunday after being treated at a local medical facility, his campaign said. One audience member was killed and two others critically injured amid the gunfire.

True, we don't know a motive for sure. But there are a lot of MAGA-types out there trying to push the idea that Biden and the libs are responsible for the shooting. Even our dear friend OldDude wants the lefties in this forum to "show remorse." So I'm providing this news item as a little pushback. As I said, my guess is the guy is more John Hinckley than John Wilkes Booth.

    See? There you go LYING YOUR ASS OFF. My point has always been to see what the DOJ has to say. That's what's so fucked up about liberals. It's not what they want to hear, so they make shit up.

    I give up. What's my lie?

    Your lie is you challenged OD before his daily meds.

    I wasn't asking for, nor expecting any remorse. Perhaps some empathy would have been nice, but that's impossible for the left also. Like I've said (three times? now), is that had this been reversed, you sheep would DEMAND immediate condemnation from everyone on the site.

    Yet, in this case, everyone is dancing on the victims soon to be graves. It seems you're all happy about a guy's family having to clean gray matter out of their clothes and off their skin. Which, like a rape victim, they can't shower enough, or use enough soap to ever get clean. And it's something they will NEVER forget before they can continue with life.

    These, BTW, are the same people that keep ranting that "all" lives should be saved in Gaza. Except for Israelis. They can go f**k themselves. Even the infants, those were totally fine to have their throats slit, beheaded and have them disemboweled.

    So when it comes to true victims, you leftist white limousine liberal sheep don't care. The complete lack of "give any sh*t at all I guess is indicative of your typical poser attitude about "empathy." So maybe I'm expecting too much out of a supposed human being. It's very, very disappointing.

    I'll show empathy for GOP on GOP crime when you show some empathy for black on black crime.

    I AM THE ONE THAT CONTINUALLY BRINGS UP BLACK ON BLACK CRIME! I've never heard you bringing it up. Maybe in a smartass answer sometimes, but never have you brought it up. I keep bringing it up in "Mass Shootings" and I keep getting told by the sheep that "it's white males that commit that crime, not black on black (to be fair, I can't ever remember you saying that, I just get it from others).

    My belief is that is a major part of inner-city issues. Especially when the liberals/ progressives defunded the police. The number of minorities buying legal guns skyrocketed. So I have mentioned them. Over and over and over again.

    Indy- that sounded a lot worse than what it was meant to sound. I wasn't jumping on you, I was just shocked you didn't realize that I'm the one continually bringing it up.

    No problem, OD - and to clear the air - I didn't take any of that as personal or offensive.
