We’re still heartbroken and disgusted by this weekend’s events in Charlottesville.
In the immediate aftermath, we waited for the President to condemn the neo-Nazis and white supremacist terrorist groups responsible for the violence.
But Trump REFUSED to even mention the perpetrators by name:
And connie, this wasn’t an off-the-cuff, misinterpreted statement. Just yesterday, Trump made it emphatically clear that he defends the most extreme faction of his base:
Unsure →The sad truth is, the terrorist groups responsible for the horrific attacks in Charlottesville are growing.
In fact, there are currently 917 active hate groups operating across the country.
But rather than address the saturation of hate groups or surge of hate crimes nationwide, Trump has chosen to equate the actions of violent Nazis to the protesters of this vile racism.
What Trump doesn’t seem to understand is that when it comes to fighting Nazis, there are NOT many sides.
connie, it’s clear Trump is turning a blind eye to the wave of hatred, bigotry, and discrimination in our country to appease his extremist supporters.
Thanks for standing up to hate,
