Rep. Swalwell Pushes for a ‘White Nationalism Task Force’

by Mary Rose Corkery


Democratic California Rep. Eric Swalwell on Monday called for “a white nationalism task force” at the Department of Justice.

“They’re going to need, I believe, at the Department of Justice, a white nationalism task force to make sure that they’re understanding at the earliest of ages how people are being radicalized, if there are in fact training camps,” Swalwell said on “MSNBC Live With Katy Tur.”

“And in our evidence we found that the Oath Keepers, a group, in particular, that they do have like training camps and initiation process, very like international terrorist groups have do,” Swalwell said. “So we’re going to make sure have to use all of the tools and the resources we can to find these groups, to defeat these groups and then bring them to justice in the courts.”

More lawmakers are advocating for a 9/11-like commission over the Jan. 6 Capitol riot after the Senate acquitted former President Donald Trump on Saturday of a charge of inciting the insurrection. A mob of Trump supporters breached the Capitol building during a protest which turned into a riot against the Electoral College’s certification of the presidential election results. 

“There is no moving on, you know January 6 is a day that we’ll sadly that all remember. I do think that we have to take a approach that we took like after September 11 and root out white nationalism, terrorism from our country,” Swalwell said.

“I do believe we need a September 11 commission taken outside of Congress. I don’t want this in Congress frankly,” Swallwell said.

The House voted 232-197 to impeach the former president a second time, charging him with a single article of “incitement of insurrection.”

“I think it should be an independent commission appointed outside of Congress from scholars, experts, states-persons who can tell us, you know, what happened and how we can defeat it,” Swalwell said. “And then inside Congress that’s where we can ask Adam Schiff’s Protect Our Democracy Act, which would really clean up a lot of vulnerabilities that Donald Trump exposed.”

    Unreal. Asians do well here. What a moron.

    If they set up a commission to investigate “Giving away national secrets during pillow talk with the enemy”, he’s your man to lead it.

    This jerk should be tried for treason! If he were a republican he would be, but he is a heathen Democrat, POS!

    I am white by birth. No apology. I am a nationalist, not a globalist, by choice. Again, no apology.

    The ignorance of swalwell is astounding. This clown should be in jail for fraternizing with a known Communist spy.

  6. Edward Cuevas

    Swalwell could care less about “white nationalism”. The left will form any wedge issue to promote tribalism and further their divide and conquer playbook. The communist democrats end game is control and domination by “any means necessary”.

  7. LM

    People like Swalwell are the promoters of hate and dissent among Americans. Hopefully the 74 million of us whose candidate’s election was stolen will be angry enough to not let people like him steal the country the way they cheated and stole the election.

    It may be my personal history as a member of the “Nerd Herd”, but Rep Swalwell bears a strong resemblance to a former jock. In fact, he sounds like one in those quotes, showing a desire to say the right thing, but not completely understanding what he’s talking about.

    If we have “systematic racism” it is because of the concerted effort of high-profile “people of color” to bash white folks and foment dissatisfaction among “African Americans”. I am getting tired of this “racism in blackface”, and it disgusts me to see a “white” person publicly agreeing to it.

      Yes. It would sure appear that way. Will it never end ?
