House Democrats Slammed for Passing ‘Orwellian’ Measure Regarding ‘White Supremacy’ in the Military



440px-Brad_Schneider_official_photoOne House Republican condemned his Democratic colleagues for adding an amendment Wednesday to the National Defense Authorization Act requiring reports on the presence of “White supremacist and neo-Nazi activity” in the armed forces.

The amendment, sponsored by Democratic House Rep. Brad Schneider of Illinois, was approved on a party-line vote of 218-208, with Democrats voting for and Republicans voting against, according to The Hill.

The amendment “[d]irects the FBI, Department of Homeland Security, and the Secretary of Defense to publish a report that analyzes and sets out strategies to combat White supremacist and neo-Nazi activity in the uniformed services and Federal law enforcement agencies not later than 180 days after enactment and every 6 months thereafter,” according to the House Armed Services Committee’s amendment tracker.
