For the first time, Canada adds white supremacists and neo-Nazi groups to its terror organization

list

By Harmeet Kaur, CNN

"SNIP.....

Blood and Honour and Combat 18 were labeled terrorist entities last Friday, joining about 60 groups that include al-Qaeda, Boko Haram and the Islamic State. Under the designation, the groups could have their assets seized and organizations that aid in the terrorist activities would be subject to criminal penalties.

The Canadian government described Blood and Honour as "an international neo-Nazi network whose ideology is derived from the National Socialist doctrine of Nazi Germany" and referred to Combat 18 as Blood and Honour's "armed branch."

Blood and Honour was founded in England in 1987 by Ian Stuart Donaldson, the lead singer of a hate rock band. The group takes its name from the slogan of the Hitler Youth movement, and its chapters and associated groups have carried out murders and bombings throughout the world.

In 1998, four members of a Tampa, Florida chapter of Blood and Honour killed two homeless men in that state, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. In February 2012, members of Blood and Honour and Combat 18 firebombed a building in the Czech Republic that housed mostly Romani families.

2. Great. But adding them to an official hate list is like warning them. Now what is Canada gonna DO

3. That, in theory, should put pressure on the US to act accordingly...

...but be prepared for Trump to ignore it vividly. He needs all the distraction he can get from his rapes and growing economic storm.

7. I think Trump and the GOP are worried about a political split if they call wp people

terrorists. They already seem to have split conservatives in canada. Anyway this is welcome news cause we have had too much of any kind of terrorism going on here in canada.
