Anti-Government Nut in Texas Shoots Up City To Protest Immigration, Tries to Torch Mexican Consulate

The police have released a timeline of the shootings here. The anti-immigration motive is still speculation on the chief’s part. Still, the idea that one would empty a hundred shots into several government buildings and attempt to burn the Mexican consulate for no other reason than to “let off some steam” after a few beers seems a tad unusual.

Thank God no one was killed by this idiot, except, apparently, himself (news reports vary at this time whether he dies of a self-inflicted gunshot or was killed by police).  He also shot up the Federal Courthouse and Austin Police headquarters.  He tried to burn the Mexican consulate with small camping propane cylinders.  Very creative fellow. A witness described him as adorned in “full riot gear” and initially thought he was a law enforcement officer.

The man was a resident of Austin, Tx., which I must add is a beautiful place and probably the most liberal city in Texas.  Apparently that didn’t sit well with this gentleman’s political views and his choice of protest was to shoot everything in sight.  Acevedo, again:

"I'm not racist, my wife is Asian!" What it's actually like looking Asian with a far-right, anti-feminist white father, and a self-loathing Asian mother who hoped for privileged "white, blue eyed babies." An appraisal of fetishes and self-hatred.

Why does it seem that the men that pursue Asian women as a "last resort," are generally the most strange, racist, spiteful and hateful people - especially against Asian men, other minorities and white women? If Asian women prefer white men - why is this, and what happens to the children - especially if they look predominantly Asian? Compiled by Asian-looking Eurasians and Hapas themselves. A community effort to explore the unintended consequences of "white fever" and "yellow fever", racism, fetishes, power imbalances, stereotypes, and the effect it has on a staggeringly large, growing, and unexplored new demographic. Why does it seem the children of Asian men and white women fare better and are more successful? Why is there such a double standard against Asian men and white women, whereas Asian women essentially default to white men? What happens when Half Asian sons resemble Asian men? Why do so many white supremacists, alt-rightists, and white nationalists have Asian partners? Why do racist white men fetishize Asian women, and why do Asian women fetishize white men - and what does that mean for the children? Compiled by the son of a racist white father and a racist Chinese mother.
