DALLAS (AP) – President George H.W. Bush & George W. Bush released a joint statement on Wednesday, denouncing racism, anti-Semitism and hatred after the events that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia.
“America must always reject racial bigotry, anti-Semitism, and hatred in all forms. As we pray for Charlottesville, we are reminded of the fundamental truths recorded by that city’s most prominent citizen in the Declaration of Independence: we are all created equal and endowed by our Creator with unalienable rights. We know these truths to be everlasting because we have seen the decency and greatness of our country.”
Earlier Wednesday, the Senate’s top Republican also condemned what he’s calling the “messages of hate and bigotry” carried by the KKK and white supremacist groups in Charlottesville.
