SWC Statement On El Paso White Supremacist Mass Murder
August 3, 2019
SWC grieves for the victims of mass murder and mayhem by a white supremacist in Texas. Carnage validated and celebrated on social media platforms like chan8 - which demonize minorities, Jews and immigrants - before deadly shootings from Pittsburgh to New Zealand to Poway.
Those cheering hate, racism, and anti-Semitism 24/7 must be stopped. We urge President Trump, Speaker Pelosi and all seeking US Presidency to lead the way in tamping down extreme language infecting America’s political and social discourse.
