George P. Bush: We Must Stand Against White Terrorism
George P. Bush was elected to the position of Land Commissioner in Texas in 2014. The 43 year old military veteran has somewhat broken from his family with his full-throated support of President Donald Trump. His Father, Jeb, had a well remembered feud with Trump during the 2016 Republican nomination process.
Bush, however, has become one of the few high profile Republicans to call out White Supremacist violence. The Land Commissioner has sent out a call to arms for all American to “stand firm against white terrorism.”
The Afghanistan veteran made the call via his Twitter account shortly after the El Paso Wal-Mart shooting. Bush wrote, “I proudly served in Afghanistan as a Naval officer where our mission was to fight and kill terrorists. I believe that fighting terrorism remains a national priority.”
Bush continued, “And that should included standing firm against white terrorism here in the US. There have now been multiple attacks from self-declared white terrorists here in the US in the last several months. This is a real and present threat that we all must denounce and defeat.”
The Land Commissioner ended his note by saying, “All terrorism must be stopped. I am praying for the victims of the shooting in El Paso. And I am asking that all Americans stand firm against all forms of terrorism.”

Bush had first made waves by supporting Donald Trump after the President feuded with his Father. The land commissioner said in 2016, “From Team Bush, it’s a bitter pill to swallow, but you know what? You get back up and you help the man that won, and you make sure that we stop Hillary Clinton.”
