I want to enact change, so as to officially designate racist hate groups as terrorists.

Because of the INA (immigration nationality act), the FRAA (foreign relations authorization act), and the State Department, groups & individuals that fall within the definition of white supremacists, the KKK, and neo Nazis are not officially designated as terrorist organizations or individuals within the United States of America.
For that to change, there would need to be new legislation introduced, and passed, designating any groups or individuals affiliated as such, as terrorist groups, and / or just terrorists. But because no such legislation exists, this is why individuals, and domestic groups that commit acts of terror and violence against our fellow citizens, under the guise of white supremacy, aren't labeled terrorists, even though they qualify as such, by every definition.
This is why these individuals & groups, (like Richard Spencer, like the "alt right") are allowed to openly recruit, and hold rallies, promoting their racist, political ideologies, and nazi dogma, while being funded, legally.
As a result, simply because these individuals and groups are not considered terrorists by our own government's nomenclature, these individuals and groups do not appear on terrorist watch lists. Their bank accounts are allowed to go untouched by authorities. Funds are not allocated to combatting, and preventing acts of domestic terrorism from these individuals and groups. Our tax dollars are not being allocated to combatting their propaganda, plots, and acts of terrorism.
In other words, for any justice to occur, we civilians have to wait until we're the victims of their acts of terrorism, before authorities will take action.
So if you wonder why these hate-fueled atrocities are occurring, without any kind of prior police or FBI intervention or investigations, even though these individuals and groups are widely known as white supremacists, neo nazis, kkk, etc... allowed to openly recruit, fund, practice, plot, and enact their hate-fueled dogma against our fellow citizens, it's simply because no legislation has been passed to designate such individuals and groups as terrorists.
Doesn't change the fact that they are, but our courts, and our terrorist-watch programs won't identify them as such, which means no funds are being allocated to combat these racist organizations or individuals as terrorists.
So if we're going to play that game, let's start by redefining the rules.
Join me in calling for our congressional representatives to enact legislation, and pass a bill, demanding that any and all groups, and individuals that identify themselves as white nationalists, white supremacists, alt-right, the KKK, and neo-Nazis, and any other divisive hate-groups that promote segregation, nazi dogma, violence, plotting, and enacting acts of terrorism, to be labeled as terrorists, or potential terrorist threats. They fit the criteria, so should the punishment fit.
The longer we go without demanding change, the more these incidences will perpetuate against our fellow Americans, instead of being prevented in the first place.
Let's FIGHT against our own home-grown terrorism.
