Washington, DC – Today, upon voting for H. Res. 41, a House resolution reiterating that white nationalism and white supremacy are contradictory to the values that define the people of the United States and Congress, Congresswoman Gwen Moore (WI-04) released the following statement:
“Today, I voted for H. Res. 41, because I unequivocally condemn white nationalism and white supremacy. Rep. Steve King isn’t the first or only Republican who has espoused these hateful and bigoted opinions. In recent years, this dangerous rhetoric has escalated and been amplified by the Trump Administration.
“Rep. King is just a symptom. It’s clear the disease is emanating from the White House. Republicans may have condemned Rep. King’s words and called on him to resign today, but they continue to support policies that align with his racist agenda.
“The GOP needs to do more than spew stern words. They need to take ownership of the polemic environment they’ve helped create and reassess their sycophantic support of the discriminatory policies and hateful speech coming out of the White House.”
