Whereas, the State Assembly strongly condemns white supremacists, the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis,
and all those who rely on violence and hatred to advance their 
cause; and
Whereas, it is our responsibility, as citizens and public servants dedicated to 
building a better Wisconsin and a better country, to denounce such acts of violence, 
and to firmly tell those who espouse bigotry and prejudice that their ideology has no 
place in our state or in our country; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the assembly, That the members of the Wisconsin assembly 
condemn the violence that occurred in Charlottesville, Virginia, and the racist, 
intolerable views that caused that deeply tragic day.
