Investigate White Supremacist Groups as Domestic Terrorism

Target: Attorney General Jeff Sessions, U.S. Department of Justice

Goal: Launch investigations into white supremacist groups like the KKK and American Vanguard as domestic terrorism and threats to our democracy.

The recent white supremacist, neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, and the deadly car attack that took place there, were undeniable acts of terrorism and must be treated as such. A state of emergency was declared when violence broke out at the white nationalist rally, where people were throwing objects, spraying chemicals, and performing Nazi salutes while chanting “White lives matter.” A group of people that was counter-protesting this demonstration of hate was plowed into by a car before the driver reversed and sped away. Three people were killed and many more injured.

In a speech responding to this terrorist act, President Donald Trump condemned the “violence on many sides,” refusing to call these hate groups what they really are. Despite President Trump’s shameful mincing of words, his national security adviser, Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster, stated, “What terrorism is is the use of violence to incite terror and fear, and of course it was terrorism.” This must not be allowed to continue to occur on U.S. soil. Sign below to demand that the Department of Justice investigate these white supremacist groups as the domestic terrorist threats they are.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Attorney General Sessions,

The horrific events in Charlottesville, VA at the white nationalist rally were terrorist acts that must be treated as such. National security adviser Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster publicly stated that “we can confidently call it a form of terrorism,” as it perfectly fits the definition. The groups that perpetrate and condone this type of violence must be regarded as the threats to our democracy that they are.

Three people were killed in an intentional hit-and-run, when a group of counter-protestors who were there to oppose the demonstration of hate were plowed into by a car. It is the responsibility of the Department of Justice to ensure that America is protected not just from foreign terrorism, but from domestic terrorism as well. I urge you to investigate white supremacist groups as domestic terrorist organizations and threats to our democracy.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    The United States of America stands for United Humanity, with equal justice, liberty, and freedoms for this wonderful human race. When we truly establish a nation renewed in the commitment to honor the foundation of what this nation represents to All Humanity, with the talents, gifts, and contributions of All, we cannot tolerate those who condemn and destroy others, for reasons of prejudice, hate, or any other Un-American ideal. Greed can be included as an Un-American goal. When our nation allows greed as an acceptable trait, then corruption and cruelty breakdown our society, as well as those other selfish behaviors bring about needless suffering. We are BETTER than hate, HIGHER than greed, more VALUABLE as a UNITED-America, – a United-Humanity. Day by day we reach for this more perfect UNION.

Day by day we reach for this more perfect UNION.

    I’ll sign this when Black Lives Matter is also designated as such. I admire the late Martin Luthor King and his son, Martin Luthor Kin Jnr and how they stood for black equality but the BLM are racist terrorists and do no good for anyone.

    I do not support white supremism either but anti-white does seem to be the common theme these days.

      Cops and National Guardsmen watched passively for hours as self-proclaimed Nazis beat counter-protesters.There was nothing haphazard about the violence that erupted today in this bucolic town in Virginia’s heartland. At about 10 a.m. today, at one of countless such confrontations, an angry mob of white supremacists formed a battle line across from a group of counter-protesters, many of them older and gray-haired, who had gathered near a church parking lot. On command from their leader, the young men charged and pummeled their ideological foes with abandon. One woman was hurled to the pavement, and the blood from her bruised head was instantly visible.

  5. Gilliam Miller: You expressed my exact sentiments. Thank You.

  6. What about Black Lives Matter and Antifa? Why not investigate the George Soros connection to leftist violence? I will not sign any petition with political bias and agenda that targets one side only.
