Biden calls Buffalo shootings terrorism, condemns ‘great replacement’ theory supporters


President Joe Biden on Tuesday called Saturday’s mass shooting in Buffalo, New York, “domestic terrorism,” and blasted backers of the so-called great replacement conspiracy theory. “I condemn those who spread the lie for power, for political gain and for profit,” the president said on a visit to the city. A white 18-year-old shot and killed 10 people at a Buffalo supermarket after researching the local demographics, with the purpose of killing as many Black people as possible, officials said Sunday. The suspect is alleged to be the author of a white-supremacist document that repeatedly referenced the “great replacement” theory, which falsely alleges that people of color — particularly immigrants — pose a political and cultural threat to white people.
