This is the September 18, 2019 hearing on "Meeting the Challenge of White Nationalist Terrorism at Home and Abroad," held before the U.S. House Subcommittee on the Middle East, North Africa, and International Terrorism of the Committee on Foreign Affairs with the Subcommittee on Intelligence and Conterterrorism of the Committee on Homeland Security. From the Opening Statement of Max Rose: "White nationalist terrorists have killed more people in recent years than any other type of domestic extremist. We also know that 78 percent of extremist-related murders in the United States last year were attributed to those adhering to a white nationalist ideology. [...] Unsurprisingly, all of this has also shed a light on the world of social media companies as a catalyst for the spread of white nationalist propaganda both here and abroad. [...] This threat knows no boundaries. It does not end at traditional borders, and it tears across continents. [...] We have to make sure that the Federal Government is working better at data provision. Right now, the capacity of the Federal Government to provide high-level analytics on the white nationalist threat, the white extremist threat, and domestic terrorism is not nearly satisfactory." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Cynthia Miller-Idriss, Christian Picciolini, and Sharon Nazarian.
