BREAKING: Oregon Shooter Asked His Victims’ Religion

151001143736-05-oregon-shooting-exlarge-169 reports that “The shooter at Umpqua Community College on Thursday asked people to state their religion and then started firing, one student said. Kortney Moore, an 18-year-old, told the News Review she was sitting in her writing class when a bullet blasted through the window. She saw her teacher shot in the head then noticed that the shooter was in the classroom. Moore said the shooter told people to get on the ground. He then asked people to stand up and state their religion but started firing anywhere. She was on the ground next to people who’d been shot. At least 13 people have been killed, according to several sources.”

    Damn it. Well, there goes my $100. Aloha snackbar.

    1. avatar David says:

      The Columbine kids asked the same thing, so maybe your $100 is safe.

      1. avatar Ing says:

        It’s also possible that this was a nutjob who intended to go after Muslims. Not likely, but possible.

          >nutjob who intended to go after Muslims

          Literally the entire US military. LOL.

        2. avatar jnoll says:

          With the constant attack on Christians, from movies representing us as nut job extremist to the media making fun of us and turning us into radicals, it is no surprise to me that attacks are happening on us. My guess though is that this killer is a Muslim and that is why they are hesitant on releasing the name. Why else would they with hold it?

        3. avatar Grindstone says:

          So his name isn’t “Muslim”.

      2. avatar Jack says:

        I’m not finding a source that is willing to say that the Columbine shooters were asking people their religion or even targeting Christians specifically. There was apparently some occurrence in the library where a girl who had already been shot was praying and the shooter asked her if she believed in God and then proceeded to shoot this other girl who was under the table praying. There was a myth that ciculated that he asked the under the table girl if she was a Christian, but apparently all he said her was “peek a boo”.

        1. avatar SD3 says:

          Those nice Columbine boys are so misunderstood.

    2. avatar JAlan says:

      Muslim extremists don’t tend to ask you for your religion if they are overseas. They just kill everyone, because if you’re a Muslim and you aren’t actively joining him in killing westerners, you’re one of them. However, maybe this one was a polite terrorist.

      1. avatar CarlosT says:

        The Westfield Mall killers in Nigeria quizzed people about Islam. Get the questions right, and they got to leave. Get them wrong, they got shot in the head.

        1. avatar Jack says:

          I remember them also doing it at some school they took in Nigeria or somewhere. I guess the question is would he think the likelihood of someone in Portland being a Muslim was worth asking.

        2. avatar JAlan says:

          Yeah, but that was in Nigeria. It’s hard to tell the Muslims from non-Muslims.

        3. avatar JAlan says:

          Also a friend just linked me to this image.

          Could be a hoax, but it could be the shooter.

        4. Sorry to nit pick, but I think you mean the Westgate mall……in Kenya

        5. avatar MeRp says:

          Jack: er, Portland?

      2. avatar virginia Coverdale says:

        Of course Muslims ask the what religion you are before shooting you. The did exactly that in the Kenya mall for example.

  2. avatar MikeP says:

    I know we’re still in the “peering through the early haze” phase, but also …. this was the home town of one of the veterans who took down the would-be French train shooter a few months back.

    1. avatar BDub says:

      Gooooo Onnnnnn!

    2. avatar Clay says:

      Gee, surely just a coincidence…

    3. avatar Alan Rose says:

      It is his school, he is currently enrolled there as a crim jus major but is away doing a stint on Dancing With the Stars.

  3. avatar Mack Bolan says:

    This is why the shooter now is “mysteriously dead”. Easier to cover up the messy facts that Muslims want us dead.

    Cant give the Muslims a bad name and have the mosques set alight Obamas chosen people and all.

    1. avatar Ralph says:

      In all fairness, we don’t know anything about the shooter’s religion, only that (i) he was 20, and (ii) he’s dead.

      1. avatar Paelorian says:

        We didn’t even know that much, it’s now being reported that he was 26 years of age.

    2. avatar tdiinva (Now in Wisconsin) says:

      I don’t know. Could be a Randian-Rothbardian faux Libertarian athiest.

      One the I know is that he is made in the mold of Nicolai Stavrogin

      1. avatar NjGunGuy says:

        “Randian-Rothbardian”, what?

        You know Rand and Rothbard had a falling out pretty early on and spent most of their lives hating each other, right? Also, what prevents an atheist from being a libertarian?

        1. avatar Grindstone says:

          Ignore him, he’s just got a vendetta for libertarians as a whole.

        2. avatar tdiinva (Now in Wisconsin) says:

          Excuse me, but I was a follower of Hayek and von Mises before you were born. Neither Rand nor Rothbard were Libertarians. Rand offered up her Objectivist Theory as an alternative to Libertarianism and Rothbard was a self described anarcho-capitalist. Neither Rand nor Rothbard were Libertarians and their followers aren’t either.

      2. avatar tdiinva (Now in Wisconsin) says:

        Just because they had a falling out doesn’t mean they are not the foundation for what is commonly called Libertarianism. But I think you are confusing Hayek and Rothbard.

        But, the first part of the post was dig at Mack Bolen’s comment.

        The second part was a statement of fact.

        And Rand and Rothbard were athiests and so are many of their devotees.

    Good job, TTAG, following the mainstream media’s lead of buying up every unverified story and posting it as if it were fact.

    1. avatar SD3 says:

      The mainstream media claims journalistic neutrality & professionalism. TTAG doesn’t.

    2. avatar Accur81 says:

      You must have missed the word “reports.” Anyways, if you are running a blog that’s better than TTAG, let us know and I’ll be happy to check it out.

        Actually, he does. It’s called “Bitching & Complaining About Everything.”

        2. avatar Grindstone says:

          The salt is real.

    3. avatar Chris T from KY says:

      Perhaps they have not said the shooters name because they are checking for the correct pronunciation of a middle eastern name. That would be very a respectful act, don’t you think?

      1. avatar Alan Rose says:

        Mr. Douchebag. Tricky one, French I believe.

  6. avatar DickDanger says:

    I thought this kind of thing can’t happen in Oregon because they have “common sense gun control” [sarc]
    But seriously, this is horrible.

  7. avatar Paul G says:

    Still no name on the shooter?

  8. Mass shooting the very same day recreational marijuana becomes legal in Oregon.

  9. avatar Steve in RI says:

    I saw a snapshot of the 4Chan thread where supposedly this guy posted. It seemed like he (and those cheering him on) were “beta males” who could not get dates. Elliott Roger style.

    Said to be this guy:

    1. avatar US Air Base Coffin Express says:

      But… but… he doesn’t look muslim…


      1. avatar SD3 says:

        Muslims & liberals do have an near-monopoly on atrocities.

        1. avatar US Air Base Coffin Express says:

          Right, because the US military that murdered one hundred thousand people in Iraq is a liberal institution. 🙂

        2. avatar Silver says:

          Yeah, leftists have never used the military to nefarious purposes, right Hitler? Stalin? Mao? Kim?

        3. avatar US Air Base Coffin Express says:

          You: “not 100% = 0%”

          0/10 🙂

  10. avatar Silver says:

    Once they post a picture of him, we’ll know whether this story will die out or become a crusade. Black or Muslim, bye bye. White guy, we’ll hear about it for the next year.

  11. avatar MIke says:

    More obama calling for ‘gun safety’ laws now. How many names can they come up for this shit?

    1. avatar Silver says:

      The usual suspects not waiting for the blood to dry let alone facts to come to light before using a tragedy to push their fascist agenda? I’m shocked, I tell you.

      Funny how these incidents never happened with anywhere near this frequency before Obama took office.

    When are the citizens of this country going to start being prepared to defend themselves and their community? We need some common sense gun usage….

        Nice one.

          Shouldn’t you be painting your boyfriends toenails?

        2. avatar US Air Base Coffin Express says:

          Nah, I’m not in the military so I don’t indulge in homo-erotic foreplay.

          Shouldn’t you be torturing the local 7-Eleven shopkeep because he might be a terrorist?

          Also, is whatever-istan just a generic term or are you actually saying there are a lot of muslims in Oregon?

    2. avatar Mack Bolan says:

      About the same time that they recognize herding all the imported riffraff into boxcars and shipping them back from whence they came is the only way this nation survives as intended.

      Otherwise reconquista 2.0 will be coming to a continent near you.

      1. avatar Silver says:

        Only a matter of time. Western civilization is past the point of no return. It’s only a question of whether our enslavers will come from south of the border or across the Atlantic.

  14. avatar Bdk NH says:

    My condolences to the families of the victims. I just listened to a victim describe via news interview what happened. Her class heard firecrackers (gunshots), locked the door, called the police, and assumed the fetal position. They hid and prayed that they wouldn’t be next. My goodness. What have we become in this country.

    As I finish wrapping my head in foil, is it paranoid of me to think that this happened today to draw coverage away from Obama monkey humping us into a proxy (direct?) war with Iran and Russia in Syria?

    1. avatar Silver says:

      Considering more incidents like this have happened under Obama’s reign than in the entire history of the nation combined, I wouldn’t discount anything.

      Also not surprised that the students curled up, unarmed, helpless, and waiting to die. That’s what leftist indoctrination has done to western civilization. We can fight for gun rights all we want, but if people are sheep at heart, the 2A will mean nothing to them.

    2. avatar ShiningKnight says:

      The sheeple mindset is contagious and deadly. There was a time when Americans were prepared to stand up and fight…..not so much these days.

  15. avatar American Made says:

    So a mass shooting takes place at 10am and it’s now 7pm on the East Coast and we know nothing of the suspect? One must ask themselves “why” hasn’t ANY info identifying the shooter other than his age been released to the media and public. In ALL other recent incidents of this type law enforcement broadcast info on the perp within a short time. Does anyone believe LE doesn’t know who the shooter was or his faith, had he been a White Christian his mug would’ve been plastered all over our TV screens within an hour.

    Notice the POS-in-Chief mentioned “mental illness” in his press conference minutes ago? Well that along with him, the shooter, asking victims about their faith, if “Christian” they got a bullet to the head, assures me the perp is a Muslim, possibly a convert to the “religion of peace”. I’m sure the Feds scrubbed ALL his online accounts ie. Farcebook, Twitter, SnapCchat hours ago so there will be nothing for us and responsible news outlets to find.

    1. avatar Fred says:

      Donning the conspiracy cap, it would make sense to cover up a Muslim killing Christians in the US, especially if there is any IS connection. We lost the window to deploy boots on the ground in Syria now that Russia has staked its claim, there is no political will to go back to Iraq, and Obama is only worried with retaining his “peacekeeper” title. The reason the full story takes so to get out is the government isn’t done engineering it. They want this to be the next Sandy Hook, another story that took a long time to engineer, and we still don’t have concrete facts on that one.

  16. avatar Bob103 says:

    Workplace violence?

  17. avatar CHRIS says:

    Muslim. Guaranteed. And it will continue. Wake-up America. Time to take a stand.

    1. avatar Grindstone says:

      Hows that crow taste?

  18. avatar Indiana Tom says:

    The longer the news of the shooter to come out means that he is one of the chosen PC people.

  19. avatar Dave says:

    Shocked the police weren’t there instantly to protect the innocent. Sarcasm. How long did this scum have the place to himself?

  20. About as far away from Texas with its lawful campus carry. Why didn’t this dirtbag go to Texas to show how tough he really is? THIS is why people should not be harassed.
    No double standards put DC politicians on Obamacare and SS.Thanks for your support and vote. Pass the word.

  21. In August 2013, Daesh high level commander Abu Waheeb and fellow Daesh Islamic jihadists in/from Anbar Province Iraq, executes three Syrian truck drivers coming into Iraq for being Alawite and not Sunni Muslims! The fourth truck driver was allowed to live because he was believed to be Sunni!

    This article fails to state the mall shooting in Kenya 2 years ago. Muslims asked theyre religion before killing them. Try again.
