The field is set. The mics are on — and soon the gloves are off. The first Democratic presidential debate of the 2020 election is underway, and NBC News will bring you real-time news, analysis and fact-checks of (almost) everything the 10 candidates on stage Wednesday night have to say.
A jury has been unable to decide whether Jack Renshaw, a neo-Nazi who admitted a terrorist plot to kill an MP, remained a member of a banned terrorist group. At the end of his fourth and final trial of the past two years, the full story of those cases can now be told – Daniel De Simone/BBC News
The only thing New Zealand PM Jacinda Ardern asked of President Trump was to ‘send sympathy and love for all Muslim communities.’
U.S. Right-wing radio host Jesse Lee Peterson claimed Muslims in America are “treated better” than white people as he expressed concern that repressed white Americans may be incited to carry out an attack in the U.S. similar to the recent massacre in Christchurch, New Zealand, that left at least 50 dead.
Peterson said during his Friday radio show that “white people are getting angry rather than speaking up prior to anger” because “normal whites” and Christians are treated more poorly in the U.S. than Muslims are.
THE BIG IDEA: The white supremacist who live-streamed his Friday rampage at a New Zealand mosque posted a manifesto online that said the attack was partly inspired by Dylann Roof’s 2015 massacre of nine black churchgoers in South Carolina, police said.
Globalization has had positive impacts, but it’s also empowered evildoers. Friday’s terrorism underscores how much the contagion of white nationalism has spread internationally. Christchurch, New Zealand, is 8,545 miles from Charleston, S.C., but social media helps make the world more interconnected than ever. In this case, 21st-century technologies fostered kinship between people across borders and oceans over their shared hatred of Muslims and immigrants.
