57 Comments on "Rev. Al Sharpton: Action Needed, Not Prayer, To Fight Domestic Terrorism, White Nationalism | MSNBC"

  1. This is what happens when people try to normalize racism hatred and stuipdy. Not one single republican will say anything to Trump about this

  2. There’s been no talk on any of the debates about any of the presidential candidates wanting to do anything about gun control. Eric Swalwell did have it on his list but hes already dropped out. Beto has mentioned it today but I bet you he doesn’t campaign about it. So if the democrats aren’t going to fight for it there is no hope there will be no change and people are going to continue to die. America, what have we become?

    • That’s because most liberals do not support taking away guns. Republicans see any gun control law as “taking away muh guns”. I know thats not the case but that’s how they’ll spin it.

      Congress has gun bills they have passed on to the Senate, where they have sat on #MoscowMitch desk collecting dust

  3. Why would Trump go against what he represents? He said clear as day months back “I’m a nationalist” on live f#%!ing t.v in the White House 🏡 Oval Office! 🤷🏾‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️ Lets stop the f%#!^ery and call it for what it is!

  4. trump want this do not be mistaken.

  5. All it takes for evil to flourish is for men to do nothing. Republicans should be ashamed of their protection of Trump. Disgusting

    Isn’t our fault, we the people that we don’t protest for gun control for days, weeks, months and as much as it takes until our government actually do something…? Aren’t we guilty?

      No. I’m not giving up my guns just because the Democrats ignore our border laws and a U.S. citizen got tired of it.

      Responsibility and Fault are different things though, aren’t they?

      Walt Schmidt stop acting like mass shootings are a rational response to Democrats not taking your border fetish seriously.
      How old are you? Give your dad his phone back and finish your potty training you absolute embryo!!

      @Christopher Carnes Even at this point?! I don’t believe so…

      Shokooh Bakhtiari This isn’t your fault. It isn’t my fault.
      The fault is with the people who pull the triggers, keep military weapons as available as candy bars, people who advocate violence, and the people who reduce the political nature of rightwing violence, and people who blame the left for the actions of rightwing shooters.
      It’s our responsibility to do what we can about it. I have, I do, so I don’t feel guilt. Still, I’m afraid to take my family out today.


    Sen. Cory Gardener, I am calling YOU OUT!
    YOU REMEMBER COLUMBINE ? That should have been the Beginning of the End of these assault rifles! But no, the CO. NRA and your hunters have REFUSED to consider others.
    VOTE CORY OUT,! Im.a Catholic and he’s a hypocritical Christian. On YOUR watch .

      Well said💜We should be Calling them all out😢☝💔

    • Banning something is going to rid our nation of it? How’d that work during the prohibition, & “the war on drugs”?? This focal point is synonymous with banning McDonald’s bc it made me fat.

    • How dare you to politicize this issue. This is not a time to make such comments … Said By NRA and fellow Republicans

    • That’s the most sexist comment I’ve ever read, shame on you!

  9. And the cops took him into custody without a scratch on and they took him in alive, the only thing that they didn’t do what’s stop off at Burger King

  10. “Thoughts and prayers”, along with “what we know about the shooter so far”…Pathetic lingo used to say little, that has long past ceased to have any relevance to life and safety., but reveals the state of America today. Led by the worst potus in history, creating chaos and division by choice, without understanding the ramifications, who remains unconnected to the greater population, and supported by those who are being lied to. This nightmare only gets more horrifying. What’s next……metal detectors in Walmart

  11. congress needs to amend the Smith-Mundt modernization act and these active shooter scenarios will end instantly.  go read it and sign the petition.

    The president through his racist rants has blood on his hands.. He may not have the gun but by his actions he is fueling the hate..

    • He incites violence.

    • Call it what it is…Hate Crime!

      Trump started his presidency with hate crimes. It will continue until Trump is out of office. Trump will not change. Our immigrant children continue to be locked up. What is Trump hiding????

      Control Freak Trump Must Resign

      Walt Schmidt sounds like a spoiled brat. “Bad things happens moms who don’t make Walt’s tendies just right!”
      Walt is just a 🧦 though.

    Republicans are having a party in the white house one of their very fine people made them proud today.

    • Do you have to believe all the fake news you read?

    • @Sammy Bolo that’s what republicans do…haven’t you seen all the innocent immigrant children separated from parents and locked up?


  16. I’m sure after the way this kid was arrested there’s more to come! tRump only going call for more!

    Trump is a White Nationalist, so are his supporters and the GOP. Enemies of the People w a bodycount of innocent people/children to prove it.

  18. Traitor Trump has more blood on his hands. He more than anyone, has inspired and emboldened these domestic terrorist hate groups.

  19. I am sick and tired of being sick and tired | August 4, 2019 at 1:16 AM | Reply

    I never heard of a mental ill individual premeditating shooting and killing multiple people , and driving 10 hours to do so. Plus, writing a multi- page essay. I am tired of people making excuses for these devils.

  20. Incited by Trump and Moscow Mitch and the GOP ! MAGA !
    Just heard another active shooter reported in Ohio !
