His hateful and uninformed rhetoric and action have uncovered and emboldened a contemporary surge of racism.

That is a biased statement with no figures to back it up.

America was just as divided under Obama.

This event is very tragic but some on here want to brand it as terrorism to cover for their own religion.

Most of the people committing these acts are mentally unstable.

Not to make light of this very bad situation but that statement suggests there are a lot of mentally unstable muslims.

Dude, these are not people that snapped, these are people plotting (sometimes for years) to savagely kill others.

I don't know all the facts on this guy but many of the shooters were mentally ill. The guy that killed people in that Colorado movie theater was crazy, the guy that killed the kids in Connecticut was crazy also.

We know that this guy had be spending ten thousand dollars a day lately, that could have set him off.

Obviously he had mental issues, but not to the point of being insane. winkNormal people do not go shooting innocent people.

Think about this! Many of the terrorist are grown to kill other people. Many of the home grown terrorist are grown to live the American dream but they are having their killings justified as mentally unstable but the stereotypes young Muslims who never had a chance to see and understand the real world is very stable and is conscious of killing!

This world sucks on both sides and until you are willing to see and act on the RC, it will not stop! Global warming better hurry up!

What nonsense. Being poor is not an excuse for slaughtering innocent people.

To an American? Especially one who is Republican?

The unlawful use of violence and intimidation committed by a foreigner (such as a Muslim) especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.

In the event the perpetrator is White:
The unlawful use of violence and intimidation committed by a mentally unstable American, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.

Indeed. It's all semantics. Stephen paddock killed at least 59 people. This is terrorism in my book because he terrified his victims. Americans should be more concerned about this form of terrorism. He did not come from Somalia or iran.

More American people are killed this way than by so called acts of terrorism. But Stephen paddock doesn't tick all those boxes of those with an agenda.

Like you din get d memo or wat?

Classification of terrorism is only when the killer is brown or black skin, with a non European name, specifically a "muslim sounding name."

White Christian is not capable of terrorist actions. It is referred to as lone wolf, mental or as Poster Black, an "Afro Guyanese" calls it, "stress related."
