1. Eleven people were killed October 2018 when a gunman opened fire during services at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh. More than a year after the Tree of Life attack, a study released by the American Jewish Committee found nearly one in three Jews sometimes hide their faith. There's a program under development right now encouraging students to develop anti-hate messaging and a big push nationally to make Holocaust education mandatory in schools. That's only the case in 11 states right now. Do you think the Holocaust should be taught in all schools?
2. The FBI reports, in the U.S., hate crimes were up 17% last year. Anti-Semitic hate crimes were up an astonishing 37%. And that increase coincides with a drop-in awareness. One study found nearly half of U.S. millennials don't know much about the holocaust. 66% couldn't identify Auschwitz. Do you think that educating students about what happened during World War II could stop the rise of neo-Nazism?
3. The FBI just arrested three men suspected of being members of a neo-Nazi hate group who had weapons and discussed attending a gun rally in Virginia next week in hopes of helping to start a race war. Several thousand gun rights supporters are planning a large rally in Richmond, Virginia's capital, this Monday in response to the newly Democratic-controlled state legislature's push to stiffen gun laws. Do you think that stricter gun laws would translate to less power for these types of hate groups?
4. And make no mistake, neo-Nazism is alive and thriving in Canada too. One of the men arrested in the above story was in the U.S. illegally from Canada, where he was formally a member of the Canadian army, discharged because of his white supremacist ties. Canada. In fact, the rise of neo-Nazism worldwide is particularly alarming, and has been directly related to the rise of nationalism and far right-wing politics throughout the world. And of course, tons of anti-semitic and anti-minority material is only a click away on the web, which has become the recruiting ground for these white supremacist groups. Even some political candidates lately have ties to these groups. Have you received (through email, directed web sites or mailers) any neo-Nazi or white supremacist literature in the last year or so?
