The man who reportedly shot dead eight people at a Pittsburgh synagogue today was anti semitic.

Robert Bowers, 46, posted his evil rants online before the shootings.

One post read: ‘Screw your optics. I’m going in’ – this was posted just hours before going on his alleged killing spree.

Bowers, 46, lived in the Castle Shannon neighborhood of Pittsburgh, about 12 miles away from the Tree of Life Congregation where the shootings took place.

His Saturday morning post on the alt-right social media site Gab.com referred to the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, a non-profit that helps resettle immigrants and refugees.

He wrote: “HIAS likes to bring invaders that kill our people. I can’t sit by and watch my people get slaughtered.”

Bowers was also critical of President Donald Trump, who he said was “a globalist, not a nationalist” and was controlled by Jews.

Other posts featured photos of and comments about guns.

Bowers reportedly used an AR-15-like gun in the shooting, and had two handguns on him when he surrendered on Saturday morning.

Local police and the FBI are treating the incident as a hate crime and are actively investigating Bowers.
