The Republican Party of Arkansas issued this statement today on "violence and racism in Charlottesville."

The Republican Party of Arkansas deplores the recent violence in our country caused by extremists whose values we do not share. We stand against the agenda of the so-called neo-Nazis, the KKK, and other white supremacist groups whose only vision for America is one of hate and exclusion. The Republican Party rejects and renounces racial animus and bigotry. Our Party is open to all Arkansans who share the dream of America’s founding ideals of liberty and opportunity for all. There is no place in the Republican Party for people who promote and condone racial hatred.

The unfortunate and deplorable events in Charlottesville were immoral and unjust. The Republican Party endorses Dr. Martin Luther King’s famous statement that “injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
