Americans were shocked by white supremacist hatred and violence in Charlottesville. http://bit.ly/2vc818C But instead of naming and denouncing domestic terrorism by fascists, Trump comforted them by blaming their opponents. http://n.pr/2wO333Y

Congressional censure is a public reprimand and expression of disapproval of the president or other public official. http://bit.ly/2ws0maG. Our MoCs Blumenauer, Bonamici, Merkely and Schrader have endorsed House Concurrent Resolution 77 to “censure and condemn” Trump for his:
-inadequate response to Charlottesville’s violence
-delay in naming and condemning the alt-right groups responsible for domestic terrorism
-re-asserting that “both sides” were blameworthy
-excusing the violence of “Unite the Right”
-employing aides tied to the alt-right

A few Republican leaders have criticized Trump’s abhorrent actions. http://wapo.st/2vTd7J3; http://cnn.it/2uQyxFg But they must do more. They must join Democrats and vote for the censure bill. Congress must make it clear that Trump’s racist anti-American comments are unacceptable. Trump must realize America completely rejects his actions. He cannot be allowed to give Nazi’s comfort and:
-make Nazi ideology acceptable
-excuse Nazi actions
-blame his opponents for terrorism

Congress must stand up for what’s right. Congress must censure Trump. History is watching.

**ACTION 2: GO TO A TOWN HALL AND ASK OUR MoCS TO VOTE TO CENSURE TRUMP

SAMPLE SCRIPT FOR WYDEN AND DEFAZIO
“My name is [--] and I’m a constituent from [city], Oregon [zip code]. I am heartsick over the events in Charlottesville and Trump’s embrace of white supremacy. Will you stand up to evil, push for a vote on H.Con.Res. 77 to censure Trump? Will you demand that white supremacists Gorka and Miller be fired?  What are your plans to fight Trump’s racist agenda in Congress?

If you can’t get to a town hall, please call Senator Wyden’s, Senator Merkley’s and your Representative’s office and ask them the above questions.
