In the aftermath of the horrific events that occurred recently in Charlottesville Virginia, there has been a veritable landslide of responses, ranging from caring, compassionate people…to those whom I don’t understand how they can look at themselves in the mirror each day.
As a lifelong Democrat, I’m proud that the Democratic party has historically been the party most welcoming and inclusive of all Americans, regardless of origin of birth, skin color, religious affiliation, or sexual orientation.
We will continue to resist the current misguided wave of hate, fear, and disrespect, espoused by those who wish to separate us. Our voices will continue to ring out loudly and clearly that WE are all Americans, and we don’t care if our so-called representatives in the highest offices of the land, refuse to condemn hate filled speech and deadly action! We stand steadfast in the belief that people of good will who speak and act with courage and determination, will defeat the powers of hate. Those that reside outside of, as well as inside our borders….just as we Americans have done in the past.
God bless the United States of America.
Chairman Sumner County Democratic Party
