Resolution filed in Illinois calls out Tennessee for failing to denounce neo-Nazis

After the Tennessee legislature twice failed to advance resolutions this year to condemn white nationalists and neo-Nazis, an Illinois lawmaker has taken the resolution's text and filed it for himself.

But in addition to asking for the Illinois General Assembly to denounce neo-Nazis, Democratic Rep. Lou Lang's resolution specifically calls out the House of Representatives in Tennessee.

The Illinois House resolution filed this week alleges that the Tennessee House of Representatives "failed to summon sufficient moral courage and basic decency to place itself on the record against such a sinister and pernicious ideology infecting the body politic of the United States."

It also states that the House in Tennessee had "been cowed by the growing influence of white nationalists and neo-Nazis."
