Fitchburg – Rep. Anderson released the following statement about Governor Walker’s tepid response to the terror attack by racists and white nationalists in Charlottesville Virginia over the weekend.

“I am angry and disappointed with Governor Walker for his response to the events in Charlottesville. After white supremacists took the life of a young woman and injured many more in an act of domestic terrorism during their hateful rally, Governor Walker refused to name the groups responsible for this violence. Governor Walker followed Donald Trump’s lead and issued a mealymouthed statement that said nothing about the hateful ideology that caused all this pain.”

“The only way we will begin to defeat these monsters is by forcefully denouncing those who support hate. If you can’t stand up to white supremacists, racists, neo-Nazis, the KKK, and other domestic terrorists, I question your moral fortitude. Even Donald Trump eventually disavowed these white supremacist groups. I’m calling on Governor Walker to grow a backbone and do the same.”

    I would agree the Governor should strongly denounce ALL HATE GROUPS including Neo-Nazi’s, Antifa, etc. Although each has a constitutional right to free speech, ALL hate groups should be marginalized and discredited.
