Petition: Tell Trump to reject hatred and bigotry

 

 

 

Sign the petition for President Elect, Donald Trump, to reject hatred and bigotry. From there the Souther Poverty Law Center website:

“During your campaign, you denigrated people because of their race , their religion , their ethnicity , their gender , their disability , and more .

You circulated racist  and anti-Semitic  tweets, and refused to immediately disavow the endorsement of a known neo-Nazi .

Now, haters of all stripes – from white nationalists  to anti-Muslim,  and anti-LGBT  extremists – are celebrating your victory.

You must distance yourself from them.

You have pledged to be a president for “all Americans” and to “bind the wounds of division” in our country.

If you mean what you say, you must do two things.

  • First, you must publicly disavow all forms of bigotry.
  • Second, you must assure the country that no one associated with a hate group or any form of extremism will have a position, a voice or influence in your administration. Steve Bannon, who led his Breitbart News empire into becoming what a former Breitbart editor called “a cesspool for white supremacist mememakers,” simply has no business in the White House.

Honor your pledge. The American people deserve no less from their president.”
