Report proves that Sikhs in the US need to train for self defense with handguns & assault rifles. If the FBI & law enforcement are not taking these white supremacy hate groups which show high rates of violence seriously, then Sikhs need to train in self defense with effective firearms to stop these hate attacks on Sikh persons and Gurdwaras.
“Membership in radical right-wing groups is at an all-time high, according to Salon.com political reporter Alex Seitz-Wald, who wrote about the issue this month.
He said there is a fear that membership and activity in these groups could lead to more violence, and that the federal government is “poorly equipped to deal with the threat.” From the Salon piece:
“DHS is scoffing at the mission of doing domestic counterterrorism, as is Congress,” Daryl Johnson, the man who led that task force, told Wired last year. “There’ve been no hearings about the rising white supremacist threat, but there’s been a long list of attacks over the last few years. But they still hold hearings about Muslim extremism. It’s out of balance.”
American Turban reports that there is a belief by some that “domestic terrorist groups, including white supremacy groups, are not being taken seriously enough by the FBI and/or federal agencies. Even our lawmakers appear to be more interested in targeting groups such as those who suffer from mental illness though these individuals have not shown high rates of violence compared to right-wing extremists and hate groups in the United States.”"
