ADC Appalled at Republican Party's Continued Spread of Xenophobia, Hate & Ignorance
Washington, DC | www.adc.org | July 31, 2012 —
The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) is appalled at
the continued bigotry and racism coming from factions from within the
Republican Party, including the presumptive Republican Presidential
nominee, Governor Willard “Mitt” Romney. On a recent trip to Israel,
Romney directed racist and derogatory comments towards Palestinians.
Romney’s actions are in line with the xenophobic nature exhibited by
factions from within the Republican Party over the past few election
Romney himself has yet to distance himself from such political
rhetoric, rather he has continued to engage in shameful tactics, and
surrounds himself with extremists, bigots, and racists. Arab Americans,
along with minority communities across the country, are deeply troubled
and concerned about the racist sentiments coming from within the
Republican Party, and call on its leaders, such as Mitt Romney, to take
a stand against such tactics and distance themselves from forces of hate
in this country.
The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC), which is
non-profit, non-sectarian and non-partisan, is the largest grassroots
Arab-American civil rights and civil liberties organization in the
United States. It was founded in 1980 by former Senator James Abourezk.
ADC has a national network of chapters and members in all 50 states.
