A resolution offering forceful condemnation of white supremacists, neo-Nazis and other hate groups was passed unanimously by both chambers of Congress and sent to President Donald Trump’s desk on Tuesday.

The language leaves no room for equivocation, explicitly condemning the vehicular killing of Heather Heyer as a “domestic terrorist attack.”

NBC News reports that the resolution “urges the Trump administration to speak out against hate groups that espouse racism, extremism, xenophobia, anti-Semitism and white supremacy.”‘

It also requests that Trump’s administration instruct the Justice Department and federal agencies to devote “all available resources” to confronting “the growing prevalence of those hate groups in the United States.”

    Finally, the do nothing congress did something. This might be the start of something good.

  2. A resolution written by a real human being who is coherent and intelligent is the way to go. Allowing Donald to speak on any topic extemporaneously is a recipe for disaster.
    It is a given that if he is asked to give a speech, without something on paper clearly typed out phonetically for him to read, then whatever issues from his lips is doomed to have to be rehashed several times before he gets it right. We’re dealing with a man running near empty in the thinking department.

    I would like to believe that Trump would sign this during a live TV broadcast to confirm his supposed opposition to the alt-right, neo-Nazis and white supremacy groups. Yeah I know silly me.

      Lynda,

      Trump is more than capable of signing the bill & telling everyone how bad the neo-Nazis are.

      The question is what does he say tomorrow?

    We cannot look at foreign terrorist groups and point the finger, when we grow them here. They are no different than the taliban or Bin Laden’s terrorist group. Yes, if we are to be a civilized country, we should outlaw terrorist originating in this country. We need to be becoming more civilized and not regressing.
