STATEMENT ON THE ATTEMPTED INSURRECTION AGAINST OUR DEMOCRACY & IN SUPPORT OF IMPEACHMENT

For Immediate Release

Riverside, CA – The deplorable acts of insurrection against our democracy were openly incited by President Trump, and fueled by Representative Ken Calvert and others.  Both men were elected to represent the will of the people, but have repeatedly and routinely ignored the majority of their constituents in favor of unconscionable decisions that continue to undermine the will of the people.

We support and applaud efforts in Congress to impeach Donald immediately.  The short length of this President’s remaining term of service does not absolve him of responsibility for inciting violence against our democracy.

Furthermore, we condemn the violence that occurred on January 6th and the acts of insurrection that are currently being planned by people who have no respect for life or for our country.  Patriotism means organizing peacefully and respectfully to improve the lives of all Americans.   It does not mean inciting hate. We plan to continue working patriotically under the new, duly elected administration.

Comments from Tisa Rodriguez, Chair, Riverside County Democratic Party

Today we celebrate the culmination of months of hard work through extraordinarily challenging times.  Despite the many challenges we have all faced, we have worked together to help elect our next President and Vice President! We have elected leadership that knows how to stay steadfast and focused through all kinds of adversity, knowing that realizing the vision for better America for all has to be our constant priority.  Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are committed to being the President and Vice President for all of America, and we cannot wait to see them take office!

In this season of change, we have risen to the challenge to support a record number of Democrats, including our next President and Vice President.  We will remain hopeful as we watch the incoming results in Riverside County, with strong leads for several of our candidates, and close races for others. We will remain committed to counting every vote, and supporting every candidate.

For now we are able to take just a moment to catch our collective breath in celebration.  Tomorrow we consider how to continue our momentum, and build back better together!

Emmett Till Anti-Racism Pledge

Emmett Till was a 14-year-old African American boy who was lynched in Mississippi in 1955 after being accused of offending a white woman. The cruelness, barbarism, and brutality of his murder were heartbreaking.

His killers were acquitted.
