On One Year Anniversary Of Deadly White Supremacist Rally In Charlottesville B’nai B’rith Renews Call For Civility And Tolerance
In a tumultuous year marked by too many instances of intolerance, we again vehemently condemn the white supremacist and neo-Nazi-backed sentiments and subsequent death and other violence that rocked Charlottesville, Virginia on Aug. 12 last year during the “Unite the Right” rally. We further deplore the “Unite the Right” rally scheduled for Washington, D.C. this Sunday.
That original rally (and now the anniversary shows-of-support for it), are pathetic tools of extremists to intimidate and undermine our democratic values. As a nation, we cannot let our principles be compromised by the fringe. We urge others to publicly reject divisiveness and intolerance.
