The Pennsylvania Democratic Party has been pressuring Republican gubernatorial candidate Scott Wagner into making a statement on the violence seen in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend. The violence and subsequent terrorists carried out by neo-Nazis, Klan members, confederate sympathizers and white supremacists forced many republicans into denouncing these groups because Donald Trump refuseal to do so or blame the violence on both sides.
When Senator Soprano finally caved and finally issued his weak ass statement days after the Charlottesville fiasco, the senator conveniently forgets to mention who exactly caused the event. According to the York Dispacth, Wagner was reached by phone on Tuesday (it’s now Friday) and told the paper “he believes in fairness and said there’s no room hatred of any kind in our society. ” Wagner goes on to tell the paper that he introduced resolutions over acts of hate aimed at Jewish Community Centers and that he does not want to get involved in a national debate on the topic through his facebook posts.
Yes. Real leadership by someone who wants to become governor. Senator Wagner’s statement neglecting to mention neo-nazis, Klan members and white supremacists (who all hate Jewish people) falls one line short of him telling the world that he has at least one friend who is a person of color.
