Clint Watts: We Have a White Nationalist Terrorism Problem in This Country
This is a valid point,
although it might be too soon to declare for certain that the El Paso attack is terrorism with the provenance of the 4chan doc still in question, there are enough white nationalist attacks to declare a war on that flavor of terror. The guy who committed the shooting definitely “liked” a picture that spelled “TRUMP” in guns is what is confirmed at this point.
UPDATE 08/06/2019 7:56 am : Federal Law Enforcement has confirmed that the white supremacist manifesto was penned by this shooter.
Rod Rosenstein, the former deputy attorney general, wrote on Twitter late Saturday that “killing random civilians to spread a political message is terrorism.”
“F.B.I. classifies it as domestic terrorism, but ‘white terrorism’ is more precise,” Mr. Rosenstein wrote. “Many of the killers are lone-wolf losers indoctrinated to hate through the internet, just like Islamic terrorists.”
Following mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio, MSNBC analyst Clint Watts joins Ali Velshi to explain the importance of identifying white nationalist terrorism by name.
