It’s not enough to reject hatred — Republicans must denounce Donald Trump for enabling white supremacists. Co-sign Tom’s letter to the Chairwoman of the GOP:
When white supremacists and Nazis march in our streets, wearing swastikas and chanting racist slogans, threatening to burn synagogues and committing violent acts of terrorism, simply denouncing them does not go far enough. We must also hold accountable all those who embrace these elements of our society or embolden their cause.
Donald Trump has allowed white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and the Ku Klux Klan to find a home in the Republican Party. First through his silence in the immediate aftermath of Charlottesville and then with his words since, he has given them cause to feel empowered.
So it is not enough for the Republican Party to reject their hateful ideology — they must also renounce Donald Trump.
Yesterday, I sent a letter to the Chairwoman of the Republican Party to remind her that her party has to not only reject the white supremacists but also the enabler they have found in Donald Trump.
Sign your name next to mine — call on the Republican Party to join us on the right side of history and disavow Donald Trump:
As Democrats, we will keep fighting against racism and oppression in all its forms, and we will never stop working to lift up our Democratic values that make this country great.
