SALT LAKE CITY — Utah’s Governor and members of the state’s Congressional delegation took to social media Saturday to condemn the acts of violence occurring at a protest and counter-protest in Charlottesville this weekend.
Violence has broken out around a “Unite the Right” rally of white nationalist and other right-wing groups that had been scheduled take place, the city of Charlottesville tweeted on its verified account.
One person was killed and several were injured when a car slammed into a group of counter protesters. Two Virginia State Troopers were killed in a helicopter crash while, “assisting public safety resources with the ongoing situation in Charlottesville.”
Senator Orrin Hatch did not mince any words in a reply directed at a video of protesters bearing torches Friday night. He said their “ideas are fueled by hate, & have no place in civil society.”
In a second tweet Saturday afternoon, Hatch’s office tweeted the following message on behalf of the Senator: “We should call evil by its name. My brother didn’ t give his life fighting Hitler for Nazi ideas to go unchallenged here at home.”
Utah Gov. Gary Herbert also addressed the protest Saturday, saying via Twitter: “Bigotry and racism have no place in our society. We condemn such acts in the strongest terms.”
Rep. Chris Stewart, a Republican representing Utah’s Second District, said: “The hatred and bigotry on display in Charlottesville is unacceptable. These acts do not represent America.”
Rep. Mia Love, a Republican representing Utah’s Fourth District, said: “The violence & hatred in Charlottesville is repulsive. This is not who we are as a nation. We must be united against this bigotry.”
