Time for leaders to lead
Lauren Patton in the Citizen-Times
Our president is literally defending Nazis and the KKK. This cannot stand. If you ever wondered what you would have done in Nazi Germany in 1939 as support for Nazis swelled, this week your actions will give you the answer.
North Carolina and our country need your leadership. If there were ever a bipartisan issue that Republicans and Democrats could agree on, surely its that there should be no place in our society for hate groups like Nazis or the KKK.
Please use your voices and your power to call on the president to stop defending hate. Please present legislation that would make domestic terrorism a specific crime to be prosecuted under the law, the same way we prosecute international terrorism.
