senate Bill S. Joint Res. 49

Condemning White Nationalists, Neo-Nazis, and the Ku Klux Klan in the Aftermath of the Violence in Charlottesville

Argument in favor

The Senate should condemn white nationalists and other hate groups in the aftermath of Charlottesville and call on the Trump administration to take steps to counteract their growing prevalence.

Yes, and the white-supremecists involved should also be prosecuted as domestic terrorists. Shameful that the U.S even has to pass a resolution like this, but with Trump in office it sends a signal that this kind of behavior is not only acceptable but desired.

White Nationialists, Neo-Nazis, and the KKK are the most un-American groups of people. We are a nation of immigrants, and as such, are made up of many races and cultures. We cannot remain silent while these racist organizations fester and damage our country's values.

I have to laugh at the "Nay" comments calling BLM & Code Pink terrorist groups. Some people need to get a grip on reality. 😂

Argument opposed

This resolution, even if passed and signed into law by the president, wouldn’t really do anything of substance to counteract the growth of white supremacist hate groups. It’s political posturing, nothing more.

Not unless we can get mutual condemnation for Antifa, La Raza, BLM and the Southern Poverty Law Center. Only picking on “hate crimes” on the right does not morally abrogate the left from condemning their own.

Nope! I'll wait until the list is expanded to include BLM, SEIU, Antifa, CAIR, Code Pink, Anarchist and Socialist/Communists.

This is a waste of time if it passes without both sides being condemned. President Trump had it right. Both sides are to blame. White, black and Islamic supremacy are all wrong. Fascism, Communism and terrorism are destructive and violent. Condemn violence. Support the rule of law.

    Both sides? There is the side of racist evil, and there's the rest of the world. This should not even need to be said, but it does, and I support Congress for having had the courage to say it with one voice. To those who draw a false parallel between the KKK, Aryan Nation, and other white Supremacist / hate groups, and those who oppose them, I say that there is no equivalence between right-wing hate groups that advocate for the extermination or suppression of other groups of people, and groups like BLM, which are formed to defend the rights of those who would be persecuted by the hatemongers. But of course, defenders of Hate Groups know this; their obtuseness is an act, a rhetorical pose, to accrue to themselves the virtue that they know attaches to their opponents. Call White Supremacism what it is; domestic terrorism and incitement to commit terrorist acts.

    People spouting that BLM groups are the same are delirious! Do research on what the group stands for. There is no positive measures for KKK or supremacist groups. They perpetuate a continued hate to press down the melting pot of this country. There needs to be government action to show support against this hate.

    The right is literally saying "you can't condemn nazis unless you also condemn those who condemn nazis." The attempt to equate nazis with Black Lives Matter underscores the depths of white supremacy in America. Send a message, not only to the few outspoken Nazis in America, but also to the vast majority of white supremacy enablers and apologists.

    Antifa is not a hate group, nor is BLM, nor is anything else that the Nazi's oppsed to this bill claim. Their lies are brought on by #FauxNews, Brietbart and Jones. All of them are run by drop outs with an IQ lower than a doorstop

    PROSECUTE WHITE SUPREMACISTS, NEO-NAZIS, THE KKK AND THE ALT-RIGHT FOR DOMESTIC TERRORISM AND PUT THESE PERPETUATORS OF VIOLENCE IN PRISON WHERE THEY BELONG! Expose Steve Bannon and the alt-right for colluding with Russia and creating 'antifa' out of the dust to discredit progressive democrats and the left! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! Not on our watch!

    Should have been condemned years ago. If you don't like living in America or the way it is run, leave go somewhere where they allow you to act your way. Just not here. We need folks to have corrective criticisms not bully and hatred.

    This should not be a heavy lift but which politician would really be stupid enough to vote against something so public. There have been Republican's in Congress who have voiced extreme right racist sentiments during interviews. The prejudice is still there. It's up to the voters to excise those element in 2018 and 2020. Not only are those beliefs not wanted on the streets of the US but we should not tolerate those beliefs in our leaders. The problem is the we now have a fascist President and Congress. Even if only a few embrace extremists views they have managed to move our entire government to the extreme right. We want a government that represents all of us not just those on the fringe.

    They should have been condemned long before these instances and not just by the public. These organizations have clear and undeniably negative agendas. The organizations should not have the protection of laws that claim to promote peace and prosperity. There is no tolerance and no place for that nonsense.

    In all the pictures I saw of these supremacists few carried the American flag but many carried white supremacists, nazi and confederate flags, Hitler salutes, and KKK symbols. These were not standing up for America or Americans. Congress should Condemn hatred in all its forms and call these people what they are Terrorists.

    Of course these people should be condemned. For those seemingly to dense to understand NAZI's, KKK, White Supremacists do NOT believe in the U.S. Government. They stand for the violent overthrow of it and genocide. Your support for them tells on you. The same people who suggest OTHER groups should be held to the same standards first are completely wrong.. they don't exist without hate groups or injustice and aren't responsible for the deaths of thousands of Americans, Millions of Jews and didn't fight to exterminate OUR country. Last thing.. I don't care if they were marching peacefully or not the same people who defend would not be ok if these idiots were flying Al Quaeda or ISIS flags. We all know this.. when you defend racists you are one own it!
