Charleston Shooter: “You rape our women and you’re taking over our country”

A survivor of the Charleston church shooting has told reporters that during the attack, the gunman–whom we now (allegedly) know is named Dylann Storm Roof–reloaded his gun five times and that, as he was killing people, he stated “You rape our women and you’re taking over our country — and you have to go.”

In addition to that, it has now been revealed that Roof appears in at least one Facebook picture wearing a jacket with white supremacist patches on it, including the flag of apartheid-era South Africa.

This makes it quite clear that the motivations for the hate crime were based on race rather than religion, as most people who don’t work for Fox News understood from the get.

Personally, I don’t understand what it is they think they have to lose if an insane terrorist has a racist motivation in opening fire on a church–but who can ever tell with these people.
