Tennessee Republicans block resolution denouncing neo-Nazis and white supremacists

“[W]e urge law enforcement to recognize these white nationalist and neo-Nazi groups as terrorist organizations and to pursue the criminal elements of these domestic terrorist organizations in the same manner and with the same fervor used to protect the United States from other manifestations of terrorism.”

State Rep. John Ray Clemmons, a Democrat, introduced this resolution in a Tennessee legislature committee on Wednesday, but it immediately died for lack of a second. All the other committee members are Republicans, and none of them supported this resolution. Read story here.
