A request to the city of Newnan, Georgia designating neo-Nazi and white supremacy groups as terrorist organizations.
Recent events in Charlottesville, Virginia that has unleashed hate groups and the killing of innocent people and creating the necessity to label these groups accurately.
After the events in Portland that left two good Samaritans dead and one wounded due to a hate crime, it is time to see these neo-Nazi organizations and white supremacy groups for what they are and that is terrorist organizations.
When a housewife and mother is stabbed in their own kitchen in Jerusalem or dozens of people are blown up by a bomb at a concert in Manchester or good people are stabbed when standing up to abuse on a max train, they are all acts of terrorism. The person carrying out these crimes against innocent people belongs to a larger centralized group that controls their thinking and often times their actions.
In Portland, Jeremy Joseph Christian, after stabbing three people in the throat and killing two of them said: "I stabbed the two (expletives) in the neck and I'm happy now", as he sat in the back of the police car.
Jeremy Christian will be honored by his organization just as other terrorist organizations honor their perpetrators of their terror.
We must see these organizations for what they are and to send a clear message that although THEY BELIEVE their time has come and they will rise up, we cannot allow that to happen. Their angry language and separationist views serve only to inflame the negatives in our society and we choose the positive.
We will not be fearful to travel or to be out in the streets or to help others in distress. We do not take our freedoms for granted and will not allow terrorists to obstruct those freedoms.
The undersigned believe that these hate groups should be labeled terrorist organizations by the City of Newnan, Georgia and hopefully in future by the federal government. It is our hope that these groups will lose their ability to parade around, to meet and spread their hate to one another, to train their youth in ways of killing other human beings.
This is a threat to our freedom and love of country and is worse than anything outside this country and we the undersigned want to see cities, states and the federal government supporting the classification of these groups as terrorists.
