Mayor Burchett: "They may have a right to spew vile hatred in Charlottesville but I have a right also to condemn it."

Former Congressman John Dingell: "I signed up to fight Nazis 73 years ago and I'll do it again if I have to. Hatred, bigotry, & fascism should have no place in this country."

Sen. Orrin Hatch: "We should call evil by its name. My brother didn't give his life fighting Hitler for Nazi ideas to go unchallenged here at home."

Hillary Clinton: "The incitement of hatred that got us here is as real and condemnable as the white supremacists in our streets. Now is the time for leaders to be strong in their words and deliberate in their actions."

My Father (from his oral history): "So we stayed there in those box cars until we got into Germany. They unloaded us and put us on trucks and took us to a prisoner of war camp there. I never will forget seeing that Nazi flag, the swastika flying over the camp. That was the most despicable thing that I had ever seen in my life. I hated that Nazi swastika flag. Clear to the time that I came home, every place we went the swastika was flying overhead. To me, that was just contemptuous."

The reclassification would remove its work combatting far-right attacks and mass shootings, such as the massacre of black churchgoers in Charleston, which are rarely classified as terrorism by American authorities.
