Petition to United States Congress

Designate Neo-Nazis / Alt Right As Terror Organizations

Take away free speech laws from AltRight / Neo-Nazis - stop incitement - enable FBI to arrest criminals. As you read this petition, American Nazis / Alt Right are terrorizing Jewish families and their friends in Whitefish, Montana. They have threatened to bring automatic weapons to a planned march.  The city of Whitefish argues that they will have to allow these racist Nazi thugs into their town based on "free speech".Incitement to murder and or harm Jews and other minorities is not free speech.The Jewish families of Whitefish and the businesses that they are associated with have all been targeted online with death threats.  Nazi / Alt Right terrorism is not limited to Montana. In January and February 2017, Jewish Centers across the country were targeted with bomb threats. Hundreds of Jewish graves destroyed.  More than 150 Neo-Nazis and white supremacists, many of them armed, staged a rally in April in a Kentucky county that voted overwhelmingly for Donald Trump. Benjamin McDowell, 29, was arrested by FBI agents after he purchased a gun from an undercover agent in South Carolina, McDowell planned a massive terror attack on a synagogue. Charlottesville - Nazis proudly walked the streets fully armed with automatic weapons. They chanted "We will not be replaced by the Jew" meaning - we want all Jews dead. Heather Heyer who was peacefully protesting the Nazis was murdered after a Nazi used his car as a weapon, taking terror tips from ISIS and the Palestinians.Have we not learned anything about Nazis?Have we forgotten the brutal history of the Nazi Party - 11 million murdered in World War Two as the result of racist hate?The Nazis of 2017 have the same agenda as the Nazis of 1938.In addition, the Nazis of 2017 have aligned themselves with the Hamas Islamic terror organization (Jihad) to achieve their global and domestic goals. We recognize that many did not live through nor experience the original Nazi genocidal era. So we ask you to think of the evil of ISIS and the efforts that modern Nazis are making to associate with them and Hamas. We are taking this action as the United Kingdom has recently declared the Neo-Nazi, anti-semitic group "National Action" as a terror organization under the Terrorism Act 2000. It is now a criminal offense to recruit for, be a member of or in any way support a Neo-Nazi group including displaying Nazi or Nazi supporting flags, posters or banners. We are taking this action as SPLC on behalf of Jewish Montana resident Tanya Gersh and her family file charges relating to death threats, criminal harassment against the editor of the largest hate publication in the USA - the Nazi online site The Daily Stormer. See: We kindly request of the United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate to designate the American Nazi Party AKA National Socialist White People's Party aka National Policy Institute as terror organizations. This present and clear danger to the welfare, protection and safety of American citizens needs to be addressed without delay. PLEASE SHARE: /

Petition to United States Congress, United States House of Representatives, President of the United States, U.S. Governors

No Nazi Threats Law: US Legislation to Outlaw Nazi Symbols

  No Nazi Threats Law: Proposal to Outlaw the Display of Nazi / Neo-Nazi Symbols in the United States of America   We propose Nazi and Neo Nazi Symbols, Greetings and Slogans, and Nazi Tattoos on Individuals be outlawed because they constitute literal criminal threats of violence towards the public. Nazi and Neo-Nazi symbols in particular pose a genuine and literal criminal threat of violence towards the general public, including people of color / minorities, immigrants, Jewish, Muslim, LGBT and transgender persons.  The government of the United States of America has a responsibility to its citizens to protect them from criminal threats.  Just as Germany, France and other countries have enacted laws to protect citizens from the hate-based threats and violence stemming from Nazi and Neo-Nazi rhetoric, and indeed to protect citizens from a resurgence of such Evil, we the people of the United States of America raise our collective voice to denounce the vile Nazi and Neo-Nazis. We proclaim the hateful beliefs of Nazis and Neo-Nazis to be wholly and forever incompatible with the ideals of inalienable rights, civil and human rights, and equal justice for all established in our nation. We demand federal and state laws be enacted to further protect the peaceful public from this insidious and evil doctrine. The display of Nazi or Neo-Nazi symbols shall be regarded as a generalized criminal threat towards the public, as these symbols are universally recognized to denote hate and a willingness to harm others. Penalties and Prosecution should rightly follow as with other statutes concerning criminal threats of violence. In the Second World War, some 416,800 American souls died fighting the evil of the Nazis.  Millions of people died to defeat the evil of the Nazis. We must honor their lives and their sacrifice by maintaining their hard-won victory. - United States Holocaust Memorial Museum - The National WWII Museum The Holocaust was a genocide in which some six million European Jews were killed by Adolf Hitler's Nazi Germany, and the World War II collaborators with the Nazis. The victims included 1.5 million children, and constituted about two-thirds of the nine million Jews who had previously resided in Continental Europe. A broader definition of the Holocaust includes non-Jewish victims, such as the Romani, Poles, members of other Slavic ethnic groups, and Aktion T4 patients who were killed because they were mentally and physically disabled. An even broader definition includes Soviet citizens, prisoners of war, homosexuals, Jehovah's Witnesses, blacks, political opponents of the Nazis, and members of other smaller groups. From 1941 to 1945, Jews were systematically murdered in a genocide, which was part of a larger event that included the persecution and murder of other peoples in Europe. Under the coordination of the SS, with directions from the highest leadership of the Nazi Party, every arm of Germany's bureaucracy was involved in both the logistics and the carrying out of the mass murder. Killings were committed throughout German-occupied Europe, as well as within Nazi Germany itself, and they were also committed across all territories controlled by its allies. Other victims of Nazi crimes included ethnic Poles, Ukrainians, and other Slavs; Soviet citizens and Soviet POWs; communists; homosexuals; Jehovah's Witnesses; and others. Some 42,500 detention facilities were utilized in the concentration of victims for the purpose of committing gross violations of human rights. Over 200,000 people are estimated to have been Holocaust perpetrators. The persecution was carried out in stages, culminating in the policy of extermination which was termed the "Final Solution to the Jewish Question". Following Hitler's rise to power, the German government passed laws to exclude Jews from civil society, most prominently the Nuremberg Laws of 1935. Starting in 1933 the Nazis began to establish a network of concentration camps. After the outbreak of war in 1939 both German and foreign Jews were herded into wartime ghettos. In 1941, as Germany began to conquer new territory in the East, all anti-Jewish measures radicalized. Specialized paramilitary units called Einsatzgruppen murdered around two million Jews in mass shootings in less than a year. By mid-1942, victims were regularly being transported by freight trainsto extermination camps. Most who survived the journey were systematically killed in gas chambers. This continued until the end of World War II in Europe in April–May 1945.

Petition to Senator Charles Schumer

Demand Senator Schumer Take ACTION Following Charlottesville

Five days after the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia: * Not one arrest has been made for Saturday's assault of Deandre Harris, though two of the white supremacist assailants were positively identified several days ago. * Other than putting out statements condemning the white supremacist violence and Trump's vile comments, no ACTION has been taken by Democratic leadership. Please stand with me to demand today that Senator Charles Schumer 1) ORGANIZE and LEAD an urgent, **sustained** national effort to oust Trump's three known white supremacist advisors: Bannon, Miller, and Gorka; and 2) Demand that the Virginia Commonwealth’s Attorney and the Charlottesville Chief of Police oversee the immediate arrest and criminal charging of Mr. Harris' assailants. These are actions that Senator Schumer and Congresswoman Pelosi could have — and should have — already led. We the people most not allow our representatives to remain passive as Nazis consolidate power in the White House and violent, known white supremacists remain free.   UPDATE: I spoke with the senator's office again at about 4:45 last night to tell them I would forward the petition to his office today. Within 30 minutes, likely by coincidence, Schumer had tweeted: "I will not let Pres Trump/Steve Bannon off the hook for refusing to unequivocally denounce white supremacy/neo-Nazism/other forms of bigotry" My answer? "@SenSchumer What does that MEAN in ACTION? What are you calling on us to DO with you to make those words meaningful? Words are not enough." Please keep this petition moving, my friends. Sign and share to send the message that along with tens of millions of Americans, you demand leadership and focused action, not just platitudes. EIGHT people have been arrested for pulling down the Confederate statue in NC. Not ONE PERSON has been arrested for the assault of Deandre Harris. The videographer who captured the assault on video has not been asked by VA police to share his footage. The life of this black man is of less importance than a white supremacist fantasy fetish. That doesn't reflect the values of the country I want to live in. Help me pressure our leaders to directly and urgently acknowledge and speak out about this injustice.
