Texas Senator Ted Cruz and a number of other prominent Republicans have called for a car attack in Virginia to be labeled domestic terrorism, and the FBI has announced it is investigating the incident as a federal civil rights case.

‘I urge the Department of Justice to immediately investigate and prosecute this grotesque act of domestic terrorism,’ Cruz said in a statement responding to the Saturday attack in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Other Republican senators quickly jumped to label the incident terrorism as well.

Arrested and charged with second-degree murder in the attack was James Alex Fields Jr, 20, of Maumee, Ohio.

Field’s mother, Samantha Bloom, told the Toledo Blade that he had texted her on Friday to say he was going to an ‘alt-right’ rally in Virginia.
‘I told him to be careful,’ she told the newspaper. ‘(And) if they’re going to rally to make sure he’s doing it peacefully.’
Fields was pictured marching with white identity group Vanguard America at the Saturday rally in Charlottesville, which erupted into chaos as police and antifa clashed with protesters before the rally could begin.

President Donald Trump admonished the day’s tragic events, saying in a press conference: ‘We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, violence, on many sides… The hate and division must stop, and must stop right now.’

But Trump’s failure to condemn the act as ‘terrorism’ was met with harsh criticism.

Republican strategist Ana Navarro commented on Trump’s statement and said: ‘This is not “many sides”. It’s White Supremacist Terrorism. The President of the United States does not have the spine to say so. Shameful.’

Republican leaders like Florida Senator Marco Rubio called out the president for not describing the events in Charlottesville for what they were, ‘a terror attack by #whitesupremacists’.

    A globalist spic who shouldn’t be in the country. Did he demand his of any other non Confederate attack ever ??? Nnnoooo. His bosses, ( Satan and his imp’s- the illuminati, ) are VERY afraid of the bible belt, because what “is” the bible belt but a condensed # of white nationalist praying Christians with a history, ( they’d like to repeat, ) of having their own country !!!?

    Don’t let the left dirty up the “brand” of The Confederate Flag by cherry picking RARE stories of koo koo’s shooting or car ramming or whatever once a friggin decade while IGNORING ERY SINGLE ATROCITY DONE BY A NON WHITE !!!!!
