Leach Introduces Resolution Condemning White Supremacists and Asks Colleagues for Support

HARRISBURG – August 16, 2017 – State Senator Daylin Leach (D-Montgomery/Delaware) today introduced a Senate resolution condemning white supremacists and asked all members of the Senate to cosponsor it.

In a co-sponsorship memo to his colleagues, Leach explained that the Senate cannot be neutral on this issues of white supremacy and neo-Nazism. Read the entire memo here.

Leach’s statement:

“As elected leaders, we are expected to lead. And if leadership means anything, it has to mean forcefully and unambiguously renouncing the repugnant bigotry of white supremacists and Neo-Nazis.

The views of these extremists are an abomination, and repugnant to everything America stands for. All decent people must stand united in condemning these bigots and those who enable them, encourage them, or wink and nod as they spew their hate.

And we must also call out those who know better, but remain silent. Fear and silence will not save our country. Only clear action will. The time for timid silence is over.”
