Law enforcement officials have provided an update after a gunman shot and killed at least 10 people in an attack on a Buffalo area grocery store. The suspected shooter, who was taken into custody, described his political beliefs as “mild-moderate authoritarian left” in a manifesto reportedly written by him. Leftist politicians and pundits have attempted to pin the shooting on numerous right-leaning figures, including President Trump and Fox News host Tucker Carlson.

The suspected gunman, an 18-year-old male, reportedly posted his manifesto online prior to carrying out the attack.

Leftist pundits and politicians have pointed to references to the great replacement in an effort to tie his attack to right-wing/conservative movements. Far-left U.S. Rep. Ayanna Pressly called “white supremacy and gun violence threats to all of our communities” in a tweet condemning the attack.

Others tried to in the attack on Tucker Carlson of Fox News.

But in the manifesto supposedly written by the Buffalo shooter, he referred to himself as politically aligned with the left. The gunman described his ideology as “mild-moderate authoritarian left” and agreed with describing himself both “left” and “right wing” depending on the definition.

He noted that he does not describe himself as “conservative”, however, calling it “corporatism in disguise.” He also pronounced support for the gay community, though he called transgenderism a “mental illness.”

Critics pushed back on leftist attempts to politicize the attack by pointing out that racially motivated, anti-white attacks in Waukesha and Brooklyn received a fraction the attention given to the Buffalo shooting by left-leaning individuals and groups.
