The Senate Denounces Hate Groups

Earlier this week, the Senate unanimously passed a joint resolution condemning hate groups.  In an amazing show of bi-partisan collaboration, the Senate expressed its sorrow for those who were injured or killed at Charlottesville.  The resolution, submitted by three Republican and three Democratic senators, calls upon the President and his cabinet to use all available resources to fight hate groups, including White supremicists, Neo-Nazis, and the Ku Klux Klan.  The resolution has its origins in the Charlottesville terror and acknowledges the loss of life, as well as other injuries inflicted to both police and civilians. 

The President's failure to condemn the racist attacks in Charlottesville offended the Senators as much as did the events themselves.
