Take Action to Condemn Trump’s Racist and Anti-American Remarks

The White House and its allies are betting they can brush off the latest racist comments from this President. We cannot let that happen. His uninformed, uncouth, and cruel remarks disparaging immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador, and African nations are unprecedented coming from our nation’s highest office. This latest bigoted outburst not only defiles the honor of the office but also, as our own WNDC President said, rips the “moral fabric of our nation” even further, here at home and especially abroad. Rupert Colville, spokesman for the UN’s High Commissioner for Human Rights, had this to say: “There is no other word one can use but “racist.” You cannot dismiss entire countries and continents as “shitholes,” whose entire populations, who are not white, are therefore not welcome.”

Members of WNDC cannot simply wring our hands and accept that this behavior has become normal.

There are two actions you can take right away:

(1)  Sign this “Petition to the Congress of the United States for the Redress of Grievances Under the First Amendment Requesting that President Trump be Censured.”

Your signature is a crucial step in making this a reality. Sign here.

(2)  Call your Congressional Representatives, demanding they sign on to the following censure resolution to be introduced in the Congress (call the Capitol switchboard, 202- 224-3121, to be connected to your Representative’s office). Two top Democrats in the House of Representatives (Rep. Cedric Richmond-LA and Rep. Jerrold Nadler-NY) plan to introduce a censure resolution in the next few days. “This censure resolution is important because America is a beacon of hope. We have to show the world that this president does not represent the real feelings of most of the American people which is part of the reason why he lost the popular vote,” Richmond and Nadler said in a joint statement. “Congress must speak with one voice in condemning these offensive and anti-American remarks. There is no excuse for it.”
