Mitt Romney’s statement on the Charlottesville anniversary strikes a chord Trump cannot

Mitt Romney is calling on Americans to “categorically and consistently reject racism and discrimination” on the anniversary of racist violence in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017 and on the eve of a repeat of the Unite the Right rally this year in Washington, DC. The former Massachusetts governor and current US Senate candidate in Utah issued a lengthy statement on Friday defending equality, steeped in his religious upbringing and belief that “we are all children of God.”

Romney, who ran against President Barack Obama as the 2012 Republican nominee for president, touched on a number of issues in his post. He weighed in on President Donald Trump’s equivocal reaction to the gathering of the alt-right and white supremacists in 2017, though he did not mention the president by name.

"...on the anniversary of racist violence in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017"

How is it racist violence when the perpetrator and victim were white?

Gee....is this the same Mitt Romney who they did their best to demonize in 2012? And didn’t fight back?

Now, of course, they just love him because he tweaks Trump on command.

To any LDS FReepers. Better to let a Dhimmicrat win than him.

That’s a hard thing for me to say.

That was just one group of leftists fighting with a different group of leftists. Romney is so STUPID.

Only those who speak incessantly to those of us who could care less about WHAT they say.

Sorry, this ‘fellow’ has nothing of interest for most of us.

Equality before the law for Hillary Clinton, James Comey, Lois Lerner, etc.

Mr. Romney, I can’t hear you.

The only chord Milt Romley strikes is off-key.

Romney reminds me of John Kerry for some reason.

Tell me Mr. Romney, since I am told that by virtue of my skin color I am automatically racist, how should I do that?

Boy, Romney and his “prog” potheads sure know how to blow this Charlottesville thing out of proportion. Even gave it an anniversary. These Trump-haters really do need to get a life.
