U.S. Congressman Rodney Davis is speaking out against hatred again after the tragedy in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend. 32-year-old Heather Heyer was killed Saturday after a car barreled into a group of protesters in Charlottesville.

 

Davis says the tragedy in Charlottesville is entirely the fault of the white supremacists who were protesting in the Virginia community.

 

 

Davis also responded to the President’s controversial comments about the attack. He says Trump’s earlier comments on the situation was what needed to be said. But, Davis says the President should have left his comments where they were at.

 

 

Most importantly, Davis reiterates that no single person caused the divide in this country that led to the events that happened in Charlottesville. Davis says it is up to everyone to come together against hatred.

 

 

Davis says people need to stand up and speak out against the hatred, because staying silent is what will lead groups like white supremacists and Neo-Nazis to believe hate is okay in our society.
