The Attorney General's Office and the New Jersey State Police published the complete data-set cataloging 2020 bias incidents in the state, and it showed a spike in incidents in Sussex County — a number that more than doubled from 2019.
We continue to urge our elected officials, namely the Sussex County Board of County Commissioners, to proceed with their moral compasses and the will of their constituents, not party politic antics that excuse and ignore the most abhorrent of our society.
Failing to condemn this emerging issue now is bound to only provide fuel to these shameful individuals and embolden the disconcerting growth of Neo-Nazism, White Nationalism, and White Supremacy.
“In case, the commissioners have any doubt about the specter of white supremacy, the Democratic congressman is ready to help. His letter invites the commissioners “to join me and the New Jersey Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness for a briefing on the latest domestic terror threats in our state.”
It then notes that for the first time the state’s Homeland Security Office has raised the threat level posed by white supremacists to “high,” putting them in a class with “ISIS-inspired terrorists.””
