[efoods]A white supremacist’s recent shooting attack at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum was part of a surge in extremist activity nationwide, according to Morris Dees.
White supremacist groups are increasingly relying on US military training, Dees, co-founder of the Southern Poverty Law Center, which works to track and shut down hate groups across America, said on Friday.
Speaking at a luncheon at the National Press Club, he discussed the findings of a report the Law Center released that day.
“Large numbers of potentially violent neo-Nazi skinheads and others are now learning the art of warfare in the United States military,” Dees said.
