In the aftermath of the tragic mass shooting in El Paso, Texas even some Republicans are coming out to attack “white nationalist terrorism.
“I proudly served in Afghanistan as a Naval officer where our mission was to fight and kill terrorists,” Bush said in a statement.
“I believe fighting terrorism remains a national priority. And that should include standing firm against white terrorism here in the US,” he said.
“There have now been multiple attacks from self-declared white terrorists here in the U.S. in the last several months.
“This is a real and present threat that we must all denounce and defeat. All terrorism must be stopped. I am praying for the victims of the shooting in El Paso. And I am asking that all Americans stand firm against all forms of terrorism,” he said.

It did not take long for others to join in with him and agree that white nationalist terrorism is what has to be confronted.

“George is right. Killing random civilians to spread a political message is terrorism. FBI classifies it as domestic terrorism, but ‘white terrorism’ is more precise.
“Many of the killers are lone-wolf losers indoctrinated to hate through the internet, just like Islamic terrorists,” Rod Rosenstein said.

But both made the mistake of saying “white terrorism” and not “white nationalist terrorism” which are not the same thing.
“There is no such thing as ‘Muslim terrorism,’ there is however, ‘Islamic extremists terrorism,’” Joe “Joey” Jones said.
“There is no such thing as ‘white terrorism,’ there is however, ‘white supremacist terrorism.’ Both are evil, neither are representative of any group larger than the evil people involve,” he said.
