Neo-Nazis Cheer Trump Plan To Leave White Supremacists Out of Anti-Terror Program

President Trump has a controversial new plan to “streamline” an anti-terror program to focus on Islamic radicals — and leave out white supremacists.

The shift has drawn howls of outrage from the Anti-Defamation League, civil liberties groups and liberals, among others.

But one group is A-OK with the new plan: neo-Nazis.

Contributors to Stormfront, a white supremacist web site, praised the administration profusely, according to Reuters.

“Oh my goodness. Is this for real. Amazing my government no longer targets me as the enemy,” wrote one prolific poster going by the username Magog.

Another regular poster, Celtchar, wrote: “Wow. It just keeps getting better and better,” adding that the anti-fascist movement’s “days are numbered.”

The proposed revamp, reported by Reuters on Wednesday, would rename the multi-agency “Countering Violent Extremism” (CVE) task force to “Countering Islamic Extremism” or “Countering Radical Islamic Extremism,” and eliminate initiatives aimed at other violent hate groups in the United States.

Trump regularly skewered former President Obama and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton for their supposed refusal to focus on Islamic terror.
