    FWIW, Hitler was a vegetarian himself. So, the two are not mutually exclusive.

    See above.

    I didn't know what a squab was until I encountered it with Indy.

    According to William L Schirer, in The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, he became one (vegetarian) after his niece died, if memory serves, in the late 1920's or the early 1930's. I admit that I can't recall them, but I have seen this asserted in other works on Hitler as well.

    I've often seen Hitler's vegetarianism stated as a fact, and would have concurred with your statement had it not been for the Mythconceptions article.

    Here's the Wikipedia page on the subject:

    So then there seems to be conflicting statements as to whether or not he was. My point was that simply because the shooter at youtube was a vegetarian, it does not show that she was not an admirer of Hitler. Charles Manson was an admirer of Herr Schickelgruber as well and it was well-known that he (Manson) was vegetarian.

    That is implied by the terms vegan Hitler fan. Hitler was, after all, both vegetarian and an animal lover.

    Perhaps the phrase "he liked German Shepherds" was misconstrued.

    Interesting book review.

    The Surprising Roots of Recent White Extremism
    By Joseph Darda

    ... Belew, a history professor at the University of Chicago, counters the treatment of white terrorists as “lone wolves” by tracing the contours of an organized white power movement that connected radical white extremists from Greensboro, North Carolina, to Ruby Ridge, Idaho, and from Waco, Texas, to Oklahoma City. From 1978, when Pierce published his novel, to 1995, when McVeigh bombed the Murrah building, white supremacists banded together like never before, forming alliances through early computer networks, intermarriage, survivalist and paramilitary groups, and literature. But they also hid these connections by adopting the cell structure of Pierce’s fictional resistance movement.

    Belew does the hard work of restoring those connections, revealing how white supremacists built a coalition of rural survivalists, urban skinheads, and anti-Semitic Christian Identity believers. The unified white power movement coalesced around stories not of triumph but of defeat. Klansmen and neo-Nazis set aside their differences — some Klan leaders held strong anti-Nazi feelings stemming from their service in World War II — to defend a white race that they believed to be under siege by black radicals, Jews, feminists, global elites, and a federal government that had left good white men for dead in Vietnam. ...

    I've read a few accounts ('testimonies') by former and 'open' right-wing U.S. extremists and militiamen of various flavours and Ruby Ridge is almost always cited a either the trigger that set them on the road beyond mainstream conservatism or as a significant milestone that showed them how far down the 'wrong path' the federal government had gone and caused them to commit more seriously to their cause.

    Same argument here:

    Latest shooting, naked gunman tackled by hero.

    A 29-year-old man is being hailed as a hero after he single-handedly disarmed a gunman inside of a Tennessee Waffle House Sunday morning during a deadly attack that left four people dead and two others injured.

    James Shaw Jr. said he was dining at the restaurant near Nashville with a friend when suspected gunman Travis Reinking, armed with an AR-15, opened fire at people outside and then inside the establishment just before 3:30 a.m.

    Shaw said he jumped behind a nearby door and suffered a minor gunshot wound to his arm in the process. As he waited to see if he would live or die, Reinking’s gun appeared to jam, giving him a chance to charge.

    Shaw tackled Reinking and grabbed the gun’s barrel with his bare hand, an act that badly burned him in the process.

    Shaw said he didn’t feel the metal’s scorching heat on his skin. Instead, he continued to grip the firearm before tossing it over a counter. He then proceeded to physically remove Reinking out of the restaurant. Reinking disappeared on foot and remained at large as of late Sunday afternoon. ...

    Bizarrely the suspect Reinking was arrested while armed near the White House but was released and the guns were returned. Also other strange incidents.

    Reinking was arrested last July after he allegedly tried to cross a security barrier near the White House in an attempt to meet Trump, authorities said. Following the encounter, he was forced to surrender four firearms, but officials said the guns were returned to Reinking’s father. He gave them back to his son, police said.

    In 2016, Illinois police officers were called to a CVS parking lot in 2016 where Reinking threatened to kill himself, per police reports obtained by both ABC 7 Chicago and WKRN. Deputies’ reports indicated that Reinking claimed that singer Taylor Swift had been stalking and harassing him. Reinking said at the time that he believed Swift hacked his phone and Netflix account, adding that she asked him to meet at a Dairy Queen, according to ABC 7. ...
