Dem Senator: Mostly ‘White Males,’ Not Refugees Have Committed Terrorism In U.S. Since 9/11

Thursday on WAKR’s “The Ray Horner Morning Show,” Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) said the right’s “demagoguery” on whether to take in Syrian refugees is not valid because since the Sept. 11, 2001, most domestic terrorist attacks in America have been committed by “white males.”

Brown said, “I think most of us recognize, we’re concerned but we also know that we trust the FBI and our security forces to do this right. Since the beginning of the Bush administration when we were attacked, September 11, we’ve not had any major terrorist attacks in this country. We’ve had individual crazy people, of normally, they look more like me than they look like Middle Easterners. They are generally white males, who have shot up people in movie theaters and schools. Those are terrorist attacks, they’re just different kinds of terrorists.”

Brown added, ““Individual people shouldn’t be fearful, because by and large our government, the federal government — people always talk obviously they don’t trust the feds, whatever. The federal government and local communities have done a pretty good job at keeping us safe. Not keeping us safe from crazy gunmen coming into schools and movie theaters sometimes but certainly keeping us safe from foreigns attacking this country.”
