U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) issued the following statement in response to the violent and racially intimidating white nationalist protests in Charlottesville this weekend over the removal of Confederate monuments:

"The racially terrorizing violence playing out in Charlottesville must be clearly and forcefully denounced. This horrific display of hatred and white supremacy has no place in our society. Our nation stands for diversity, inclusion and unity, not bigotry, anti-Semitism or intolerance. It is deeply disturbing that removing the last vestiges of this nation’s Confederate past has unleashed this white nationalism, but its very emergence makes it painfully clear why these monuments should come down."
