‘Politics are dividing us’: El Paso attempts to heal after mass shooting


♪♪ ♪♪ -We pray for the wounded and killed in this senseless act of violence. We pray for those who put their lives in danger to respond to this emergency. -…hallowed be Thy name. -[ Speaking Spanish ] -My love for El Paso runs deep. I was volunteering with community organizations before becoming a priest. And I’m very proud of our town. You never want any kind of tragedy like this to happen anywhere, but…for it to happen here, you know, it’s deeply wounding. It’s deeply wounding in a way that, honestly, I can’t even explain. [ Indistinct conversations ] -We care so much about them. Our hearts are broken, and they ache because we know how tearful they feel right now. And what we’re gonna do, we’re going in here to say a prayer for them. We know the power of prayer. We’ll pray for them, their families, for their hope, for their future. -I think politics has lots to do with this, which is dividing us. Something happens and people start calling it racism. What’s happening? They (politicians) are creating hatred in our hearts. -My parents go to Walmart — All the time. -To that Walmart? -And especially today was one of those days that they were actually gonna go… at the time that that happened, and they didn’t, thank God. But, I mean, I could have been one of those people that could have lost my parents today.

    I don’t think El Paso will ever be able to heal. I mean, 18 years later after 9/11, New York City still hasn’t healed. 😢

    These WHITE NATIONALIST TERRORISTS are killing Democrat whites, Independent whites, blacks, Latinos, Mexicans, Jews and they are killing every body who is a not a white Republican.  Trump, the Republicans and their racist, white nationalist terrorism, is going to lead America into a race hate civil war!!!

    The problem isn’t even White Extremism; it’s conservatism. A failed ideology that attracts losers and cowards

    these shootings sadly took place 1, though in it dems had major fact showing their efforts to make this happen. liberals democrats are why ill not getting help or treatment. then the groups linked to socialists communists of far left shed their blame. there is answer of facts and truth these horrible event are 99.99 percent of the time are linked to: leftists, liberals, socialists, communists, democrats and those 1 in billion actions are mentally ill. whom been taking  advantage of by someone for political almost all form same 5 groups I said. these 5 groups have organized tragic events for decades emails would show it and words never let tragic event as false flag event. when timing can be use stop truth of these 5 groups failed for long time policies are shown, then point to other as blame or political it like beto did and others blame any one but their own for failures to act. these facts come from Clinton and Obama studies on crimes and events like this, which all stated almost all crimes done are from: liberals, leftists, socialist, communists, democrats and their collusion of media deep state with none Americans ,who demand altering our country and it's rule than. respect or host country ad it's rules of proper law on only those who break law than all who obey law already. when 5 groups I pointed out do not even once want obey laws and take fault with anyone but out side the 5 groups I pointed out.

    Lets not bring politics into this until the investigation is complete. We will understand better now given that he is alive.
