“White supremacist terrorism is the most serious threat to the homeland today, according to the intelligence community,” Biden stated. “Not ISIS,” says the speaker. This isn’t Al Qaeda. “Supremacists of the white race.”
In September, acting US Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf informed members of Congress that white supremacy was the “most persistent and fatal threat” to the US.
Since 2018, white supremacist extremism has been responsible for more fatal assaults than any other domestic violent extremist group, according to a report released by the Department of Homeland Security in October 2020.
Biden compared the killing of the black community in Tulsa to the fight between demonstrators in Charlottesville, demonstrating the country’s long history of white supremacists.
“What happened in Greenwood was an act of hate and domestic terrorism with a current through-line,” he stated. “Just close your eyes and recall what you saw on television four years ago in Charlottesville.”
