El Paso, USA racist massacre not unique


This 5 August 2019 video from the USA says about itself:

White Nationalist Terror Attack in El Paso Was Not an Isolated Incident

Gerald Horn and Arun Gupta outline the history of white terror in America and what its modern manifestation means for our future.

NYT NIGHTMARE HEADLINE The alleged gunman in Texas who killed at least 22 people Saturday reportedly shared a manifesto online that used similar language to Trump’s, and used the phrase: “Send them back.” But the first edition of the New York Times suggested that the president was attempting to unify the country with the front page headline: “Trump Urges Unity vs. Racism.” [HuffPost]

TRUMP BLAMES EVERYTHING BUT GUNS AND HIMSELF President Trump spoke Monday in response to the mass shootings over the weekend, calling them a “crime against all of humanity.” The president blamed white supremacy, the internet, video games and mental illness for the massacres. He did not blame guns or himself. [HuffPost]

TEXAS GUN LAWS ABOUT TO GET EVEN LOOSER Under the current laws in Texas, legal gun owners don’t require an additional permit to carry long guns, such as the one the El Paso gunman used last weekend, in unrestricted public areas. From Sept. 1, it will be even easier to carry guns in Texas churches, schools, apartment buildings and disaster zones. [HuffPost]

COUNTRIES WARN CITIZENS AGAINST U.S. TRAVEL Venezuela’s government issued a warning Monday telling Venezuelans to postpone planned trips to the U.S. or take precautions due to the “proliferation of violent acts and indiscriminate hate crimes.” The Uruguayan government also warned against hate-based violence in the U.S. [HuffPost]

THESE SHOOTERS ARE NOT LONE WOLVES Authorities say the shooter who killed 22 people and wounded dozens in El Paso, Texas, Saturday acted alone. In a narrow sense that may be true, but experts warn that it’s important to recognize his actions were rooted in a wider movement of white nationalism and violent extremism that is behind a growing number of mass murders.  [HuffPost]

HANNITY PROPOSES ARMED FORCE TO SURROUND SCHOOLS Fox News host Sean Hannity is calling for a virtual police state of armed ex-cops and military to “surround” schools and shopping malls to prevent mass shootings. [HuffPost]

Gay son of “Straight Pride” organizer says event “dog whistles” white supremacy.

TUCKER CARLSON: WHITE SUPREMACY IS A ‘HOAX’ Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Tuesday claimed there is no white supremacy problem in the United States and that the very notion of one is a hoax created by the media and the left. He has routinely given airtime to white nationalist conspiracy theories and talking points, yet claimed “the whole thing is a lie.” [HuffPost]

NEBRASKA GOP SLAMS SENATOR FOR CONDEMNING WHITE SUPREMACY The Nebraska Republican Party called on state Sen. John McCollister to quit the party after he accused his fellow Republicans of “enabling white supremacy” by staying silent on President Donald Trump’s hateful rhetoric. [HuffPost]

CONGRESS CALLS ON 8CHAN OWNER TO TESTIFY Lawmakers have called on Jim Watkins, who owns 8chan, an online forum that amplifies the voices of violent extremists, to testify before Congress after the shooter in one of the weekend’s two massacres was believed to have posted on the website. [HuffPost]

CALI GOV: MAKE GENDER PART OF GUN VIOLENCE CONVERSATION California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) on Monday urged leaders to discuss the role of misogyny and toxic masculinity in gun violence, pointing out that mass shooters “overwhelmingly, almost exclusively, are males, boys, men.” [HuffPost]
