White Supremacist groups are Terrorist Organizations!
0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!
The purpose of this petition is to get the Department of Justice and the Trump administration to charge white supremacist and Neo Nazi groups as terrorist organizations under the USA PATRIOT Act.
The threat of white supremacist violence in the US is as at least as dangerous as that posed by Islamist groups such as Isis, the head of the FBI has revealed.
Chris Wray, the recently confirmed new director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), said there were currently 1,000 ongoing investigations into domestic terror groups and a similar number of probes into groups driven by radical Islamist ideology.
“We take both of them very, very seriously,” he told senators on Capitol Hill. “Our focus is on violence and threats of violence against the people of this country. That’s our concern - it’s not ideology.”
The issue of the threat of white supremacist aggression has received fresh attention following neo-Nazi-led violence in the Virginia city of Charlottesville last month that left one young woman dead. Donald Trump found himself mired in controversy after he appeared slow to condemn the neo-Nazis and white supremacists behind the violence, and sought to instead blame “all sides”.
Yet Democratic senator Claire McCaskill said the number of attacks carried out by white supremacists were “almost triple” those of those carried out by people who identified with groups such as Isis. Government data obtained by The Hill suggested the number of white supremacist attacks compared to those from radical Islamic groups was as many as two to one.
“I don’t think Americans understand the level of threat we have in this country from white supremacists,” said Ms McCaskill.
