Without giving any specific examples or evidence, United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warned on Feb. 22 that “white supremacists” and neo-Nazi movements are becoming a “transnational threat.”
He also claimed that such invisible and silent groups have exploited the coronavirus pandemic to boost their support.
Addressing the U.N. Human Rights Council, Guterres said the invisible, unheard and generally completely unprovable threat of hate-driven groups was growing daily, according to Reuters.
“White supremacy and neo-Nazi movements are more than domestic terror threats. They are becoming a transnational threat,” he claimed. He added: “Today, these extremist movements represent the number one internal security threat in several countries.”
He did not name any countries.
In the United States, leftist politicians and media did their best to inflame racial tensions during the presidency of Donald Trump. His replacement, career politician Joe Biden, an elderly white man who trounced a wide field of female and nonwhite primary opponents that even included a gay man, has claimed recklessly that the Jan. 6 demonstration at the U.S. Capitol by Trump supporters was carried out by “thugs, insurrectionists, political extremists and white supremacists.”
“Far too often, these hate groups are cheered on by people in positions of responsibility in ways that were considered unimaginable not long ago,” Guterres said. “We need global coordinated action to defeat this grave and growing danger.”
Guterres also accused authorities in some countries of using the COVID-19 pandemic to deploy “heavy-handed security responses and emergency measures to crush dissent.”
In the United States, however, the pandemic has primarily served to keep private businesses and churches from operating, as well as provided opportunities for unchecked voter fraud through mail-in voting.
