4 GOP members of Tennessee state legislature can't bring themselves to denounce neo-Nazis and white nationalists

3/16/2018 CNN article includes this quote from Rep. Ramsey:
Republican member of the committee, state Rep. Bob Ramsey, told WZTV that they didn't have enough information on neo-Nazis or white supremacy to be able to talk about it. 
"We have no expertise on it," he said. "How could we determine these groups are terrorists? We don't know the federal guidelines on terrorism."

 I suspect these 4 sad sacks vote on plenty of other resolutions and bills for which they have no expertise.  Guess their staff members aren't assigned any research duties.
