Yesterday, United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres took part in the International Day of Commemoration in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust—an annual day to remember the 6 million Jewish men, women, and children who were killed by the Nazi regime from 1941-1945. In his remarks, Guterres called for a global alliance to combat the spread of white supremacy and neo-Nazism. He alluded to the recent attack on the U.S. Capitol—where some insurrectionists flaunted Nazi symbolism—as a reason to ‘fight propaganda and disinformation’ in media and political affairs. ‘In Europe, the United States, and elsewhere, white supremacists are organizing and recruiting across borders, flaunting the symbols and tropes of the Nazis and their murderous ambitions,’ Guterres said. ‘The continued rise of white supremacy and neo-Nazi ideology must be seen in the context of a global attack on truth that has reduced the role of science and fact-based analysis in public life.’ According to the FBI, hate crimes went up roughly 20% during the Trump administration. Many have pointed to Pres. Trump’s sympathetic rhetoric as fueling the efforts of white nationalist groups like the Proud Boys. Guterres is speaking to the press now.
