Bill to condemn Neo_Nazis in Tennessee was dead less than in a minute

A resolution calling on Tennessee lawmakers to stand against neo-Nazis and white supremacists
did not live longer than 40 seconds. The bill, the goal of which was to “denounce and oppose the totalitarian impulses, violent terrorism, xenophobic biases, and bigoted ideologies that are promoted by white nationalists and neo-Nazis” had been introduced in the wake of the tragic events in the country, like Parkland tragedy. The bill included no names and no particular organizations or groups. Despite it seemingly being a simple win for the lawmakers, the committee chair – Republican state representative Bill Sanderson – killed off the resolution within seconds. Republican committee member Bob Ramsey pleaded ignorance, saying: “We have no expertise on it. How could we determine these groups are terrorists? We don’t know the federal guidelines on terrorism.” In fact, it is a sign of the committee’s incompetence, hence the federal guidelines on terrorism are in wide access.
