Why Did Trump Remove all White Supremacist Groups from Terror Watch List? To Spread Islamaphobia
Nazis and all white supremacist groups are celebrating today after the glorious victory that our president handed them. Trump is pushing to remove all racial hate groups from the FBI’s terror list. According to a Reuters report,
The program, “Countering Violent Extremism,” or CVE, would be changed to “Countering Islamic Extremism” or “Countering Radical Islamic Extremism,” the sources said, and would no longer target groups such as white supremacists who have also carried out bombings and shootings in the United States.
Just in the past two years, authorities blamed radical and violent ideologies as the motives for a white supremacist’s shooting rampage inside a historic African-American church in Charleston, South Carolina and Islamist militants for shootings and bombings in California, Florida and New York.

Apparently, Trump’s administration is trying to escalate Islamaphobia. Obama, for example, would never utter the phrase ‘Islamic terrorism’, because he refused to relate Islam with terrorism.
Islam is the second most popular religion in the world, behind Christianity. According to Pew Research however, by the year 2070, Islam is projected to surpass Christianity. Our president is doing every possible thing to start a war with the Middle East. His battle cries against Iran as well as his incessant Islamic defamation are good strategy to force our nation into war and make a ton of dough!
Trump owes these white supremacist groups a lot. These hate groups propelled Trump to the White House. When Trump made Steve Bannon his Chief Strategist, Trump’s popularity soared. After all, Bannon is the creator of Breitbart, which is the most popular website among white supremacist groups. Removing these hate groups from the terror watch list could be considered a ‘thank you’ from Trump.
Renaming ‘terrorism’ with ‘radical Islam’ might make Steve Bannon’s crew happy, but will it stop terrorism? Hoda Hawa, director of policy for the Muslim Public Affairs Council, said, “That is concerning for us because they are targeting a faith group and casting it under a net of suspicion.”
According to this Duke study, if we are to value the opinion of 382 law enforcement agencies, then Trump just put our country at risk. Trump has pulled the FBI from investigating the country’s number one threat. Why? For what?
