8. What was the trigger that ignited Bower? the Caravans


The sensational violence and tremendous grief that the country has experienced in the Pittsburgh shooting has also dulled the country into perceiving Bowers as being as simply another ticking time bomb that went off.

While Bowers was a long term anti-Semite he did not go off 2 months ago or 5 months ago.

He went off this Saturday. As all crime show watchers know serial killer analysts look for a particular "trigger" that set this mass killer of on this day.

For Bowers what ignited his anti-Semitism was the constant hyping of sensational lies about the Caravans by President Trump and FOX news. This is not speculation, he spelled it out in his last tweet. He thought that HIAS was bringing caravans of murderers to attack "his people". It wasn't the religious ceremonies that triggered him to act at that moment it was the sensationalizing of the dangers of the caravans coming to our border.

Trump and FOX news lit the match, and that is a fact.

The final post read: “I can’t sit by and watch my people get slaughtered. Screw your optics, I’m going in.”

That post, from Saturday morning, referenced “HIAS”, a global not-for-profit organization, founded in 1881 as the “Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society” to help Jews fleeing pogroms in Russia and Eastern Europe. It now protects refugees.
