Washington, D.C. | www.mpac.org | February 24, 2023 — Neo-Nazi groups across the United States are planning a “National Day of Hate” tomorrow, February 25, according to a leaked NYPD internal memo. The Muslim Public Affairs Council vehemently condemns this display of domestic extremism and white supremacy. We stand in solidarity with our Jewish allies against antisemitism, White Supremacy, and hate. With organizers encouraging people to drop banners, place stickers and flyers, or scrawl graffiti, it is essential that all minority groups that have been targeted by White Supremacists remain vigilant. Houses of worship, community centers, and businesses should be on high alert.
From Neo-Nazi groups helping elect the former President to the insurrection on January 6th, and now with a planned “National Day of Hate,” it has become increasingly apparent that more needs to be done domestically to address White Supremacy and other extremist ideologies. Allowing these ideologies to propagate and grow unchecked does not only affect Americans; the United States is the leading exporter of these ideologies to Europe, where right wing groups are leveraging disinformation and conspiracy theories to build support against minorities, refugees, and immigrants.
