I decided to write a statement to exemplify the kind of statement Americans across the country would have wanted and have been satisfied with from their President.
President Trump recently stated his belief that “Fake News Media will never be satisfied” in reference to his remarks on Charlottesville, so I decided to write a statement to exemplify the kind of statement Americans across the country (and across the political spectrum) would have wanted and have been satisfied with from their President in the aftermath of a terrorist attack perpetuated by a White Supremacist.
“Today we are faced with the tragic reality that terrorism has been perpetuated on our own soil. An American was killed by a fellow American because of nothing more than political difference. That many in our country have come to hate and resent others for having different opinions is itself a tragedy and it is a tragedy for which there are no words when such hatred and resentment leads to death and violence in our very own streets.
While there has been travesties and violence coming from many sides in this growing crisis, it must be stated clearly that those espousing racial or ethnic superiority, such as the KKK and other White Supremacist and “Alt-Right” groups, are followers of a gospel of hate that has no place whatsoever in our national discourse. We should reject them and we should disown their rhetoric of hate absolutely, completely, and without exception.
I encourage everyone, both Republicans and Democrats, to come together in a moment of national resolve and join me in condemning the killing of Heather Heyer and in offering a prayer for unity against anyone who espouses the hateful ideology which predicated the tragedy that ended her life.”
