Last quote by Mike Signer

I think everything changed last weekend. I think that was one of those moments in the nation's history where everything turns. All of a sudden these statues of Civil War generals installed in the Jim Crow era, they became touchstones of terror – the twisted totems that people are clearly drawn to, trying to create a whole architecture of intimidation and hatred around them that was visited around our town, . It was evil.feedback

The time has come for this to stop. This should be a turning point. This movement jumped the shark and it happened yesterday. People are dying and I do think that it's now on the president and on all of us to say 'enough is enough.feedback

Jul 07 2017 - Ku Klux Klan

Our approach all the way through, from our police chief on down, has been to urge people not to take this totally discredited fringe organization's putrid bait at all. The only thing they seem to want is division and confrontation and a twisted kind of celebrity. The most successful defiance will be to refuse to take their bait and continue to tell our story. Then their memory of Charlottesville will be of a community that repudiated them by not getting drawn into their pathetic drama.feedback

May 15 2017 - Populism

In time when you've seen legitimacy conferred on a really toxic politics of intimidation from the top down, including the sort of blessing of the alt-right movement from the White House, I think it's a sign you're doing the right things when these trolls try to attack you from anonymous accounts. Here is what this great country faces in this age of @realDonaldTrump-a sitting mayor subjected to anti-Semitism. I will not be intimidated. Well, let's not be too sure. Could have been a Russian.feedback
