Statement from Senator Charles Schwertner Regarding White Nationalist Rally to be Held at Texas A&M University  

Published on August 14, 2017 by Larry Crippen

AUSTIN, TX – The following statement was released from Senator Charles Schwertner (R-Georgetown) in response to the announced white nationalist rally to be held by outside groups on the campus of Texas A&M University next month.

He said, “It has come to my attention that the same white nationalist groups responsible for the recent tragedy in Charlottesville are planning to host a similar hate rally on the campus of Texas A&M University next month.  The racist and bigoted hate speech promoted by these groups does not reflect the values of Texas A&M University or the people of Texas and it should be loudly and consistently condemned by all responsible voices of our society.

“While the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution protects the right of these groups to assemble and espouse their hateful and narrow-minded worldview, it also protects my right to publicly speak out against it…and that’s exactly what I plan to do when these groups come to College Station next month.”
