Over the weekend, we found out that white supremacists tried to weaponize the coronavirus.
Now, we learn that a white supremacist tried to bomb a hospital in Missouri that’s grappling with this health crisis; he died during a confrontation with the FBI. This terrorist was active online with the National Socialist Movement – a neo-Nazi hate group that’s a defendant in our Charlottesville suit for its role orchestrating that violence.
To recap, in the last few days alone, reports have confirmed that white supremacists:
-- planned to car-bomb a hospital.
-- discussed turning the virus into a bioweapon targeted at Jews, law enforcement, and others.
-- spread disinformation, anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, and anti-Asian attacks.
It’s very clear: white supremacist terror is a dire threat to our national security - especially during a pandemic.
We are proud to be taking on the leaders and hate groups at the center of this violent movement. And we’re so grateful to have you with us in this fight.
