That is such a reckless and irresponsible statement to make. Basically he’s putting a target on the presidents back...wink..wink...someone take out that white nationalist in the WH. Unbelievable!!!

South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg expressed concerns Saturday that the U.S. is “under attack” by white nationalists carrying out mass shootings — and those white nationalists have been encouraged by President Donald Trump.

Well, we are under attack from homegrown white nationalist terrorists. Or do they not report those incidents and the surrounding facts on Fox "News"?

Hey Pete, what if you found out the Kid was Gay?

Would you blame it on his struggles with coming out as a gay man ?

Spin, twist, deflect. Stretches like Stretch Armstrong.

I don’t get it. Progressives blame the power of words and rhetoric for the uptick in American violence, but never let a tragedy go to waste by using ... words and rhetoric to club others over the head.

Can you prove him wrong?

Most of the mass shootings in the USA over the last 48 months have been committed by white men. Are you saying that factual information is fake news?

If El Paso, Dayton, Las Vegas, Pittsburgh Synagogue, etc, had been committed by all brown Muslim men, I can only imagine what you and all the other conservative posters would be saying about terrorism being out of control.

But it's been mostly white men so the far-right just says "mental health" and "thoughts and prayers."

It's why I think these attacks are being planned and carried out under the instructions of these politicians. Don't forget, we had politicians that wanted to stage attacks on Americans and make it look like Russia and Cuba were the ones behind it to start WW3, but thank God JFK didn't want to go along with it.

Yes. From the El Paso shooter's manifesto...

"...the idea of deporting or murdering all non-white Americans is horrific. Many have been here as long as the whites, and have done as much to build our country."

NOT the words of a white nationalist.

Whether that’s true or not. One thing you don’t do is fuel the situation to make things worse.
It irresponsible and reckless!
