Is there a such thing as a white terrorist? Yes.

I find it very sad that TrumpleThinSkin has been conspicuously silent on the issue that TWO white, non-immigrant, non-Muslim men have been caught hatching terrorist attacks. I understand that it doesn’t fit his narrative that Islam and immigrants are the ones we need to fear, but the real fact is that white men are the ones that we should really fear. Timothy McVeigh, Dylann Roof, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, James Holmes, George Zimmerman, Adam Lanza, Richard Poplawski, James Von Brunn, John Patrick Bedell, Andrew Joseph Stack, Jared Loughner, Daniel Cowart, Byron Williams, and Ted Kaczynski, all ALL white terrorists. The KKK IS A TERRORIST GROUP, yet most people just shrug them off. (Clearly, I don’t mean ALL., but if you’re offended by that statement, perhaps you should look in the mirror?)

Why does our government not call white terrorist for what they are? Terrorists. Instead, they get labels like, “mentally disturbed” or “they had a rough home life”. This repulses me. Dylann Roof knew what he was doing when he walked into that church and killed nine beautiful souls. Adam Lanza knew what he was doing when he gunned down CHILDREN. I’m sick of the double standards in the country. Stop portraying the Dylann Roof’s of this world as mentally ill while people of color don’t get that benefit. Omar Mateen, while he was born in the US was called a terrorist after he went into Pulse nightclub. I’m in no way saying what he did was ok, but what makes his crime terrorism and Adam Lanza gunning down children an act of the mentally ill?

Oh, that’s right, Omar Mateen is a person of color.
