Mr. Holder's Justice Department is to be commended for their efforts to investigate hate groups and their crimes. NOT helping is the House Committee on Homeland Security, where chair Peter King (R-NY) refuses to ask for investigation of the many white/Christian hate groups like those that nurture mass hate murderers like Timothy McVeigh. Instead, he insists that only Muslim Americans be investigated, as if only they would ever hurt other Americans.

bernice3 - Please tell us which Christian groups "nurtured" and supported McVeigh? Why post such lies?

Fascinating area of concern. Please tell me: if you kill your neighbor because he is, say, of the Hittite race, or if you kill him in the course of robbing his home, is he any less dead in the latter case?
