• Hillary: White Terrorism, Police Violence as Big a Threat as ISIS

    Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton could not differentiate between ISIS, “white terrorism” and “police violence” at the Brown and Black Forum in Iowa Monday.

    Clinton was asked by the moderator if she believed that white terrorism and extremism is as much a threat to some in this country as ISIS.

    “I think we have all kinds of threats in our country, and I wouldn’t discount any of them,” Hillary responded. “I think we have to take them all seriously. And many of those threats are fueled by the gun violence that we face every single day.”

    Clinton noted that the Oklahoma City bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah building was committed by “a guy who hated the government.”

    “That’s terrorism, as far as I’m concerned,” she said.

    Hillary then accused police of “terrorizing.”

    “I think that when you have police violence that terrorizes communities, that doesn’t show the respect that you’re supposed to have from protecting people in your authority,” she said. “That can feel, also, terrorizing. So, there are so many different kinds of potential violent acts and we have to go after all of them, we have to stop them all.

    “It becomes higher profile when it’s tied to international terrorism because that seems like it’s coming from outside, not homegrown,” she continued. “Well, I saw homegrown terrorism in Oklahoma City, and I saw foreign terrorism in New York City, and I saw people grieving over the loss of their loved ones, and at some point we all have to come together as a country again and stand against violence. And do something to get the guns out of the hands of people who shouldn’t have them, no matter who they are.”
