Right-wing extremist John Russell “Rusty” Houser opened fire in a movie theater in Lafayette, Louisiana on the evening of 23 July. He killed two people and himself.
Like fellow right-wing, anti-government, white supremacist, and neo-Nazi Charleston shooter Dylann Roof, Houser—a defender of Hitler and neo-Nazi parties, a virulent anti-black racist and anti-Semite—was also a big fan of the Tea Party and the Westboro Baptist Church.
Also like Dylann Roof, the media and political establishments are not referring to Houser as a right-wing terrorist.
When will the media and political establishments admit that right-wing white terrorism is, by far, the biggest domestic threat the US faces? When will they do something to combat it? And how many more of these massacres must take place before they do?
