‘This is Why Leadership Matters’
MADISON, Wis. — A photo of a group of Baraboo High School students giving nazi salutes and making other white nationalist gestures surfaced today and is the subject of state, national and international media reporting.
The following are the statements of One Wisconsin Now Executive Director Scot Ross:
“This is why leadership matters.
“These teenagers have watched Donald Trump outright endorsing white nationalism, while Republicans leading Wisconsin state government have sat silently and refused to stand up to Trump and strongly and directly denounce his racism, xenophobia and sexism.
“We all must take responsibility to call out hateful, disrespectful speech when it happens, no matter the speaker.”
