The chairwoman of the Republican National Committee “unequivocally” denounced white supremacists, members of the Ku Klux Klan, and other hate groups; telling racists and bigots they “have no home” in the Republican Party and she doesn’t want their votes.
RNC Boss Ronna Romney McDaniel was speaking with ABC News when she said there is “no place” in the GOP for racism and anti-Semitism.
“The President condemned the white supremacists, and the KKK, and the Neo-Nazis unequivocally,” said McDaniel. “Our party has across the board said this is unacceptable. We have no place in our party at all for KKK, anti-Semitism, racism, bigotry, it has no place in the republican party. There is no home here, we don’t want your vote, we don’t support you, we’ll speak out against you.”
“The President has said so, the Vice President, leaders across our party, this is the beginning of what needs to be a longer conversation,” she added.
Romney McDaniel placed the blame for the deadly protests that rocked Virginia over the weekend “squarely” at the feet of the KKK and other white supremacist organizations.
“When it comes to Charlottesville, the blame lays squarely at the KKK and the white supremacists who organized this rally and put together an entire event around hate and bigotry,” she said. “The President did the right thing condemning it. I’m saying absolutely the events that transpired in Charlottesville were initiated by this white supremacist KKK rally.”
“It would not have happened if those people had not come together in hate. There were peaceful protesters who did the right thing coming out against it,” McDaniel added.
