Democrat Robert Byrd served 50 years in the U.S. Senate until his death in 2010.

U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner isn’t mincing words in condemning the violence in Charlottesville and is insisting that President Trump do the same.
Make no mistake about it, Gardner said, the media might try and portray those Nazi white supremacists as right wing or part of the Republican base, but we don’t support them and sure as Hell will never represent those beliefs.

“White nationalists, white supremacists, they’re not a part of anybody’s base. They’re not a part of this country. They’re a part of hatred, they’re a part of bigotry, they’re a part of evil, and we need to stand up to that.”

“We don’t want them in our base, they shouldn’t be in a base, they shouldn’t be claimed as part of a base, and it has to be made crystal clear,” the senator concluded.

Other Republicans were equally outraged and expressed those views on social media over the weekend.


Ironically, while the Republicans are giving the bigots both barrels, it’s the Democrats who sound downright wimpy.
