Senate: Hate groups are terrorists


“Radical hate groups” are domestic terrorist organizations, according to a resolution adopted Wednesday by the Michigan Senate.

The Democrat-sponsored resolution, taken up by the Republican-led Senate on the first day of fall session, specifically denounces white nationalists and neo-Nazis following a deadly clash last month in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Michigan lawmakers denounce hate groups, make 'civility compact' after Charlottesville


The Michigan Senate on Wednesday adopted a "civility compact," in which lawmakers promised to unite against hate. The House is expected to follow suit next week.  

"Michigan is a welcoming state and no one should have to live in fear of hate, bigotry and extremism," said Sen. Margaret O'Brien, R-Portage, the lead sponsor of the resolution in the Senate.
