    Not in our culture. If you're going to give up your life for a cause, it better accomplish something, like at least try to save a life or vanquish a powerful enemy. This guy affected nothing. What was going on in his life that this was the most positive goal he could come up with? He was not thinking straight. Did he not have friends or family? Sad that he killed himself, but he's not a hero.

    Cough.. Cough... He wanted to draw attention to try & save Palestinian lives from a very powerful military force (Israel )

    No one needed him to draw attention

    That's what he imagined, but it was unnecessary since that issue already has plenty of attention. His actions won't save anyone or affect what happens next. In a few days, maybe a week, he'll be forgotten...but he'll remain dead forever.

    I think you're dead wrong.

    Active Air Force lighting himself on fire in Nations Capitol in front of Israel Embassy is a historical action. Just like monks burning themselves for Nam'

    That's not in the powers to be script.


    BTW, do you care @ all about arabs trapped in total bombardment of Gaza or are you a kill 'em all & take land guy?

    I do not give a $#@!.

    Not my circus not my monkeys.

    Not a dime of arms, handouts, weapons...not a $#@!ing dime to either side.

    Both of these groups, Arabs and Jews, have openly stated over and over again their goal is the destruction of white, western, Christian civilization.

    A pox on both their houses, may they slaughter each other to oblivion, $#@! them both.

    ETA - And every single one of them here in my country that are not 100 percent vetted as citizens and citizens of this country alone, get the $#@! out as well.

    I feel bad for the kid actually.

    Having no sense of his history or accomplishments or his place in the world, thrown into the meat grinder and then wondering what the $#@!, over...yeah I can see a descent into madness.

    Yet again, my man:

    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Anti Federalist again.
    And it's highly probable that he was an atheist or some kind of non-deist, devoid of a concept of a higher power, of a God who loves him and to whom he should devote not just his mortal being but his immortal soul... it would be one thing if he sacrificed his life because he was forced to accept a false god and to reject God as a consequence - that is martyrdom and is one of the ultimate proofs of faith; but this waste of his life and his soul... in my opinion, this poor kid died a long time ago, and he just got around to acknowledging it.

    Close.

    He was part of a family and a home schooled kid that belonged to an obscure sect local to Cape Cod called the "Church of the Transfiguration".

    But from what I have read he had rejected much of it, maybe they don't teach the gospel there, I don't know.

    And then fell into the self affirming echo chamber of places like reddit and instagram.

    So I guess the seeds were not planted deep enough, or perhaps corrupted from the start.

    This is unconfirmed and I hate to speak ill of the dead, but I have read he was queeer and a "furry" which adds to that confusion.

    Neither! My concern is with my own country and my own people!
    You’re stuck in a there’s-only-option-A-or-option-B mindset. (You said something about a script?) Why are you unable to discern that your home and your own people come first? not the A and B options the powers-that-be are trying to force on us!

    If arabs and jews in some other part of the world want to annihilate each other, that’s their sin, not mine. Neither is interested in how I feel about any of it and it’s not my job to save either. I refuse to make them the focus of my life. I reject the notion that I should expend an ounce of my energy, much less one red cent, in support of either.

    Are you truly so extra special nice that you can’t stop worrying about the suffering in the mid east? Then shut up, get over there, and fight on the side of your choosing. Anything less, and you come off as a hypocrite and a narcissist.

    Yes, for antifa scumbags and other leftist hypocrites.
    How long till democrats appropriate some taxpayer funding to erect a memorial to the misguided idiot? And how many deluded young people will decide to copy-cat his behavior after seeing the notoriety, and positive reactions to this act of suicide? Maybe self-burnings will replace mass-shootings in the media circus?

    The guy was mentally ill. Sane people don't do $#@! like this.
    My two daughters and I were gang-raped by some of the Newcomers. It landed us in the hospital for 3 weeks as several bones were broken. I don't blame them, it was a sexual emergency and I wasn't about to go all white privilege and deny them the release they needed, especially after being stuck in a hotel for months. I see the Newcomers as family now. They are on our side and will help us stop Trump. It is a small price to pay. Anything but Trump.

    Sounds like a front for a Cthulu cult.

    Believe it or not there are some out there, who honestly think the schools are agents of capitalist running dogs and do not indoctrinate enough Marxism.

    In the process of homeschooling four kids to a HS diploma, I've met a couple in my travels.

    They are genuinely nuts.

    Maybe his parents are that flavor.

    Just based on where they lived, it's a good possibility.

    Not for nothin, this guy could have wreaked havoc on the people inside that building, but he didn't.

    Instead he simply harmed himself.

    If this isn't a testament to the peaceful nature of the American people, I don't know what is.

    We are not violent people.

    It's our government which has turned this country into a nation of violent sociopaths, occupiers, invaders.
