Last month’s El Paso shooting was just the latest incident of white nationalist terrorism currently overtaking the United States and our allies around the world. These horrific events continue to follow the same depressing script – a heavily armed racist walks into a public place and shoots as many innocents as possible, all in order to combat an “immigrant invasion” threatening society.

Then the media debates whether or not President Donald Trump is responsible for what happened. Critics argue his bigoted leadership inspires lunatics to act on their hate, while others say such violence would occur no matter who was in office. It’s impossible to know which side is correct, since the motivations behind any tragedy are often complex and multifaceted.
