Satire: “House Majority Whip Calls For Clearer Labeling Of White Supremacists”

“House Majority Whip Calls For Clearer Labeling Of White Supremacists”
by Andy Borowitz

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)— “House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) said on Tuesday that he would introduce a new bill requiring clearer labeling of white supremacists.The White Supremacist Labelling Act of 2015 would require white supremacists to wear 4-inch-by-6-inch name tags clearly designating them as members of an official hate group. “Right now, it’s impossible to tell the difference between neo-Nazis and collectors of WWII memorabilia,” Scalise said.

The Louisiana congressman said that proper labelling for white supremacists should make it easier for lawmakers to know what kind of organizations they are addressing in the future. “Sometimes it’s hard to see through all that smoke from the burning crosses,” he acknowledged."
