House Democrats to Investigate ‘White Nationalism’

Breitbart – by Joel B Pollak

Incoming House Judiciary Committee chair Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) revealed plans Tuesday to launch an investigation into the rise of “white nationalism” in the United States when Democrats take over the House of Representatives next year.

In a letter to Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, FBI Director Christopher Wray, and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, Nadler demands answers to questions the Democratic minority had submitted to the administration over the past two years but which, he says, the agencies had ignored. The questions include accusations Trump “issued false statements” about terrorism and that he intended to single out Muslims.

In addition, Nadler complains about “President Trump’s rhetoric” as a possible cause (footnotes omitted):

He calls himself a nationalist. He falsely claims that “foreigners” are the primary sources of domestic terror. He famously claimed that there were “some very fine people on both sides” of the riot in Charlottesville — where a neo-Nazi demonstration ended in the death of one counter-protestor and two officers of the Virginia state police.

(Trump’s comment about “both sides” referred to the underlying issue of the removal of a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee; the New York Times itself documented the presence of ordinary protesters at the event.)

Nadler has already promised that he will continue investigating Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh over claims of sexual misconduct as a teenager — though he was confirmed after a Senate investigation. Nadler was also recently overheard revealing “plans for House Democrats to investigate and impeach Justice Brett Kavanaugh for alleged perjury and investigate and impeach President Donald Trump for alleged treasonous collusion with Russia.”

The letter from Nadler does not mention the long-running associations of leading Democrats — including then-Senator, and later president, Barack Obama — with antisemitic and racist Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.

  1. Know already how this is going to play out. The predetermined conclusion will that “white nationalism” is a serious threat, therefore a “crisis” that demands immediate action. Nazis, neo-Nazis and KKK members will be under every bed. This “crisis” will naturally be all Trump’s fault. The solutions will be: more and tougher laws, more censorship of “hate speech”, more “sensible gun laws” and perhaps another government program or agency to deal with the crisis. Yawn. And all the talking heads will have their 15 minutes of fame in front of a camera. Oh yeah, more money (that we do NOT have) will be needed (to line the pockets of all the race baiters)

  2. ….and the spector of “thought crime” comes to the forefront. You just look like you’re proud to be white, therefore you should be in jail!
    I can’t stand this Millennial generation forcing their brainwashed ideas on the gullible!!

  3. CNN severed ties with Temple University professor and frequent television commentator Marc Lamont Hill over his pro-Palestine comments at the United Nations Wednesday.

    Hill was dropped as a pundit by CNN Thursday after he made comments about boycotting Israel and calling for a “free Palestine from the river to the sea.” Although the Anti-Defamation League and the National Council of Young Israel both condemned his comments, Hill defended his stance and took to Twitter saying, “At no point did I endorse, support or even mention Hamas.”

    “Marc Lamont Hill is no longer under contract with CNN,” the network announced Thursday.
