GOAL: Tell Congress to censure Trump for refusing to hold white supremacists accountable

REASONS: The Nazi swastika. The confederate flag. Both are bone-chilling images, and both were on proud display in Charlottesville last weekend, where white supremacists marched, and in an act of domestic terrorism, killed activist Heather Heyer and injured dozens more. But on Monday, Trump blamed the violence on “both sides” and called the tiki-torch wielding white supremacists “fine people.” The comment earned praise from former KKK leader David Duke. Let’s be crystal clear: in rhetoric and in policy, the Trump administration has coddled and encouraged white supremacists. At least three prominent white supremacists — Steve Bannon, Sebastian Gorka, and Stephen Miller — have been invited to serve alongside him in the White House.
We’ve seen this dark history before and we will not go back!
