Just another day in America and another young man radicalized on the internet. This time the setting is Dallas, and the genius shooter decided that his target should be a federal courthouse: a location not known to be filled with federal LEOs and security guards. Armed with his tactical gladius and AR-15, he took several shots that injured no one before being shot in the head by a security officer.

Gladius circled below:

From The Daily Beast

A Texas man accused of opening fire outside a Dallas courthouse uploaded right-wing memes to Facebook, including memes about Nazism and the Confederacy.

Authorities said Brian Clyde, 22, attacked the Earle Cabell federal courthouse Monday morning before law enforcement killed him. No one else was reported injured. A Dallas Morning News photograph of Clyde shows him holding a semi-automatic rifle and wearing a belt full of ammunition. He appears to have uploaded to his Facebook page a picture of similar magazines on Saturday. Elsewhere on the page, he shared memes, some of which suggested racist or misogynist views.

Authorities did not offer a possible motive for Clyde’s rampage and declined to comment on his social media presence.

Wearing a ski mask and what appeared to be a bulletproof vest, Clyde reportedly opened fire on bystanders near the courthouse parking lot. He then reportedly fired on the building, shattering the glass front doors. Police later detonated what they described as a suspicious device in the car Clyde parked nearby.

Last week, Clyde uploaded a Facebook video suggesting plans with a gun.

“I don’t know how much longer I have, but a storm is coming. However, I’m not without defense,” he said in the brief video, pulling out a rifle. “I’m fuckin’ ready. Let’s do it.”

On Saturday, he uploaded a picture of 10 gun magazines. On Sunday, he uploaded a picture of a sword with the caption “A modern gladius to defend the modern Republic.”

Clyde served in the Army from 2015 to 2017, though details of his discharge were not available. Del Mar College listed him as a graduate with as associate’s degree in May.

He frequently posted memes that suggested familiarity with the far-right internet.

“When Libertarians and NatSocs meet on the battlefield during the Boogaloo,” read the caption of one meme, which shows the Power Rangers and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles teaming up. (“NatSoc” is short for “national socialist,” a Nazi ideology. )

In late May, he posted a meme about quitting meme groups that forbid bullying, transphobia, and racism. An April meme suggested “the solution to all of our nation’s political problems” by incorporating some libertarian and eco-friendly ideologies into far-right authoritarianism, represented by a green flag with a Nazi swastika in the middle.

A May 4 post defended Infowars founder Alex Jones for his claims about vast networks of pedophiles. Other posts suggested transphobic and anti-feminist views.

Multiple memes referenced the Confederate flag. In November, he posted a picture of a person wearing full medieval armor while holding a gun and an anime body pillow. While not inherently political, anime body pillows are a running joke in the 4chan-right. He also participated in medieval live action roleplaying, which is also apolitical but has a large fanbase on the far right.

Other posts indicate a heavy involvement in gun culture. He posted about loving gun shows, made an ASMR video with an AR-15, and in January posted about using incomplete lowers “to get around California's asinine gun laws.” Incomplete lowers refer to partially-built guns that can be purchased and assembled in states that prohibit buying the completed guns.

In a February 2018 post, he indicated some of his political views. “Hobbies: shooting commies and Manifest Destiny,” he wrote.

On Monday afternoon, workers at the courthouse were being ushered back into the building by officers with the Dallas Police Department, the FBI and ATF. The parking lot in which Clyde was killed remained cordoned off by several blocks Monday afternoon as business returned to normal in greater downtown. A heavy police presence remained as the lunch hour passed and officers worked inside a large perimeter of several blocks surrounding the courthouse, collecting evidence.


Is the conservative white male civilized enough to live in modern society? My research into the field of craniology suggests that their malformed brains may drive them toward authoritarianism, hatred of their fellow citizens, and violence.

What can be done about white crime and white terror? Will we ever be able to feel safe around reactionary white males ever again? Can people who worship a known trafficker of child pornography be peacefully integrated into a civilized society?

Please Zionist, don't get angry. Remain calm. Nobody needs to die.

As a white(? are Israelis really white?) person you are statistically more likely to commit an act of terror. So I urge you to remain calm and fight against your white(?) instincts to go on an indiscriminate murder spree.

Socioeconomic conditions and a racially biased justice system which is more likely to target and punish non-whites disproportionately.

Why would I do that?


Because whites are statistically the most likely group to commit acts of terror or mass shootings.

Than why Asians dont seem to complain about racial bias and they even seem to earn more than whites

I dont live in the US and we dont have the type of shootings like you have there
here statistically people with brown skin are most likely to commit mass shootings or other terror attacks

:eh: Measuring skulls now are we? Scientific racism is alive and well I see.

You should go hang out with your white male terrorist friends because clearly you're cut from the same cloth of racism and hate.

He didn't even kill or injure 1 person and lost his life. :roll: It almost makes me feel bad for the guy, but he'd have had a very expensive stay in prison if they hadn't killed the guy.

depends on how you define terror and mass shootings. If we take terror to include the primitive politics of gangland then the indiscriminate violence that gangs employ as a tactic of mass intimidation would make blacks the group that commit the most acts of terror and mass shootings.

No, really by every metric white reactionaries are the most likely to pop off in a public place. We really need to discuss the violence inherent to right wing thought, and how to best treat this mental illness.

Lol yeah dude. I bet if you got to define things however you wanted then this would be a pretty simple and straightforward discussion. Good point, bro.

Lol let us first assume that Gangs, the plural form of Negro, go around shooting people for no reason because they just love shooting people.

You're the one trying to impose your politically motivated definition but there is nothing simple or straightforward about the term.

Lol let us first assume that Gangs, , go around shooting people for no reason because they just love shooting people.


One of the many reasons they go around shooting people is to intimidate entire communities into silent compliance, that's a social objective and violence to achieve a social objective is part of the broad standard definition of terrorism.

"narcoterrorism is understood to mean the attempts of narcotics traffickers to influence the policies of a government or a society through violence and intimidation, and to hinder the enforcement of anti-drug laws by the systematic threat or use of such violence. "

the plural form of Negro

I'm sorry that you have trouble with words.

Also lmbo your quote is from the Wikipedia page on narcoterrorism that specifically references South American drug cartels. Which I'm pretty sure aren't equivalent to inner city gangs working a corner.

But yeah keep saying gangs of black people drive around shooting people randomly.

Brian Clyde spent two weeks in a mental institution after he was discharged from the army in 2017. Probably he was suffering from PTSD and Clyde’s half-brother said he was depressed and suicidal. If you want to commit suicide, there are two choices, either making it a big show or dying quietly without being noticed by anyone.

The Dallas Morning News reported on June 20, 2019 that Clyde’s half-brother allegedly “warned the FBI in 2016 that he shouldn’t be allowed to buy a gun because he was depressed and suicidal,” according to their mother. According to the newspaper, this occurred at a time that Clyde was in the Army. The Morning News also reported that the FBI had confirmed that Clyde’s half brother called a national hotline in 2016 but said he “didn’t report a threat against an entity or individual, so the FBI had no legal reason to pursue an investigation and no further action was taken.”

Maybe he just wanted to die as a soldier since he didn't really make a big show.

Here's a big show worth dying for:

Well if this guy was upset because he didn't make the "big show" somebody should have told him that the "big show" isn't all that's cracked up to be and that nobody should aspire to die in some sort of "big show." This sort of reminds me when somebody stole a tank in California and decided to take it for a ride down town. Maybe this guy was upset because he didn't make the "big show" either:

Actually, he never got close to downtown. He stayed primarily in the Kearny Mesa and Clairmont Mesa neighborhoods of San Diego...
