After attending a variety of right-wing rallies on the West Coast and instigating violence, several members of the radical neo-facist hate group Rise Above Movement (RAM) have been arrested by the FBI and are now facing federal charges.
This comes on the heels of a handful of other RAM members being indicted by a federal jury in Virginia for their role in the violence that broke out at last year's deadly "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville.
In these seemingly dark times, when political violence and intimidation have seen a troubling uptick in frequency, it is heartening to see that the FBI and the Department of Justice are taking the necessary steps to hold those who would see American values razed and replaced with hate and bigotry.
Let's send a message of support to the Department of Justice and those who serve on these individuals' grand juries – as well as a message of encouragement to continue to uphold the rule of law in the United States!
