Carolyn Maloney  •  12th Congressional District   •   August 14, 2017

Dear Fellow Democrats,

 The recent events in Charlottesville, Virginia were disturbing and frightening. They showed, without a doubt, that the cancers of White Supremacy and anti-Semitism are alive and growing in the United States. The toxic beliefs of the KKK and neo-Nazi aligned protestors in Charlottesville, fueled by hate, bigotry, and racism directly echo those of the Nazis that millions of Americans, including my father, fought so gallantly against in World War II. History shows us that we cannot wait to speak out, the time is now. We must stand strong against this kind of hateful ideology and the violent actions we witnessed this weekend. Unchecked, this movement will only grow to be even more dangerous.\In an act of domestic terrorism, Heather Heyer, a young woman standing up for peace and unity, was murdered this weekend by a White Supremacist who also injured twenty others. This is beyond unacceptable and must be unequivocally condemned by all Americans. It is also incumbent upon the federal government to prosecute this individual to the fullest extent of the law and take active steps to combat hate online, on college campuses, and in our communities.\In matters as important as this, silence equals consent; and I will not be silent. We need to call these actions what they are; hate and terror.

Sincerely,

Carolyn B. Maloney
