National Manhunt On For Wisconsin Man Who Robbed "Armageddon" Gun Store, Burned His Car, Sent an Angry Manifesto To Trump, and Then Disappeared

I mentioned the gun store's name, Armageddon, as it's probably a clue to this guy's state of mind. He fulminates against government actors of all kinds and is convinced the 1% of the nation's wealthiest are plotting against the rest.

He sent the manifesto to Trump.

Many people are calling it an "anti-Trump manifesto" but I haven't seen any evidence of that. (If you've seen such evidence, please let me know.) It occurs to me that this guy could have sent Trump the manifesto to awaken Trump to the government/Capital Class conspiracy, and sees Trump as a possible ally, if only he'd Get Woke.

I don't know. But of all the deranged shooters which the media wants to link to the right, this one strikes me as one where the guy might actually be on the (fringe) right.

Also, many stories claim the guy stole "assault rifles" from the gun store. I am betting 10,000 Internet Credibility Credits that that is false. The media likes calling semi-auto rifles which are Black and look sort of Military-ish "assault rifles" when in fact they're just semi-automatic single-shot-per-pull rifles with a pistol grip.

PJ Media's write-up is here.

Feds are patrolling churches to find this guy. And not because he's religious, but because he's anti-religion, and I guess the feds fear some of his targets may be religious believers.

Among the places authorities are patrolling are churches, due to Jakubowski's anti-religious views.

(Which doesn't make him left-wing, by the way: A lot of fringe right-wingers don't like religion. A lot of fringe people, period.)

If, however, this guy actually is a left winger:

When will we start talking about the Culture of Hatred and heated rhetoric from the left and the leftwing media that poisons people's mind into committing acts of violence?

I said that flippantly, but I mean it. I've just written about this too many times before to bother doing so again.

But if "hot" and "extreme" rightwing rhetoric spurs rightwingers into violence, and the media condemns that, surely hot and extreme leftwing rhetoric can inspire leftwing shooters too, right? And the media should also condemn, and take peddlers of extremist leftwing conspiracy theories to task, right?

Unless... they support it.
