A Stand Alone Complex represents a phenomenon where very similar actions of individuals create a seemingly concerted effort.
We have yet to determine if the train collision in Virginia was just a tragic accident, but the fact that so many Republican leaders were on the train leads us to further scrutiny of the event, as well as an exploration of other similar events that have occurred recently.
Let’s start with what we know about the train accident.
Who was on the train?
The train was carrying Republican lawmakers and staff to a political retreat in West Virginia where they were to discuss policy for this legislative session.
What better time to attack someone than right before they gather to make plans for the country. Even if no lawmakers were killed, the accident would be fresh on their minds and put them in a state of compromise and concession as near tragic events so often do.
Accident near Charlottesville
The accident occurred in Crozet, near Charlottesville, site of the Alt-Right tiki torch parade and subsequent riots that took the life of 2 police officers and protester.
The violence at Charlottesville has now been blamed on the Democrat party trying to incite violence by allowing Democrats to attack conservatives and white advocates to incite attacks like the one we saw on Heather Heyer.
Lawsuits against the state and city are ongoing and the police chief was forced to retire after poor protest planning was purposefully ordered to be subpar by Democrat mayor Mike signer and Democrat governor Terry McAuliffe.
Terry McAuliffe has also been accused of aiding and abetting bribery in the FBI by giving cash to FBI officials wives to run for office, donations that will never be returned.

We have no understanding of how the crash occurred or even if it was related to any type of nefarious reasoning.
Only time and effort of investigators will determine that.
The reason for this article is not to focus on one incident but to see if patternicity can find an overall understanding of the implications of tragic events like this on our country.
I'd like to explore two other events that have also affected Republicans:
The Las Vegas Shooting attack against Republican country music fans &
the attack on the Congressional baseball practice.
Las Vegas Shooting
Stephen Paddock opened rapid fire on a crowd of thousands, killing 59 and wounding more than 500 on Oct. 1st, 2017.
USA today reported tweets saying Paddock was a registered Democrat.
Regardless, we know who the victims were. Country music fans. And when you go to a country music concert there is one thing you are certain to find as a supermajority, Republicans.
Congressional baseball practice attack
James T. Hodgkinson, 66-year-old Bernie bro, and Hillary voter attempted a brazen attack on an obviously Republican target.
He attempted to assassinate House Republican Majority Whip Steve Scalise as well as other Republican congressmen on June 14, 2017, during a congressional baseball practice in which only Republicans were in attendance.
An odd pattern
Over the span of 8 months, we have seen 3 incidents in which Republican politicians or Republican supporters have been the victim of tragedy.
Who do we blame?
The Democrat media that has incited riots, civil, and world war over the last year?
The Democrat politicians who have hyped the media and driven their base into a violent frenzy?
Maybe the Gods are involved, using some sort of magic to further the liberal hatred for their amusement?
It is up to all of us individually and collectively to find the cause of these events and prevent them in the future.
