Fresh update on "eleanor holmes norton" discussed on Rick Hamada

"Better turn this? Uh, turn this song down, then. Heylen hot for teacher. Because I envision C square in his office dancing on his desk. This is the tune of all tunes Right here on the 30 Case Feats recommended program with Scotty be it is a 38. Brothers. He's square and I going through some stuff. Bring up the D. C. I've you know, seen a few conversations about it seems to be cyclical. Maybe in a way. That it's always considered. But why should or shouldn't The District of Columbia become the 51st state. A lady. Both arguments. Um Feed the population. The district is has been increasing over the last decade, and so you have almost 700,000 people that are in the district. They do not have voting rights, eh? So they don't have congressmen or senators. They have a not they have a delegate, Eleanor Holmes Norton. Perennially is the person who was elected who contributes and works in Congress. But they don't have voting rights. And you have states like Montana out West but have two senators and representatives, Um smaller states and so by population, they should be given representation, and that's the argument on the left. Um, on the right or I shouldn't even say just on the law. Um, you know, the Constitution is incredibly specific about this. That, uh it's Article one, Section eight. Clause 17 and specifically designated the federal government shall designate 10 Square acres of land tense department 10 square miles of land to establish a federal district. And that that land shall be governed by by Congress by the federal government. And if you go through and you look at the federalist papers, it's like a cliff notes version of why they did this. It wasn't an accident. It could have easily have made New York or Philadelphia and the other established city, the seat of government. New York was the seat of government. They did this intentionally, and the idea was to have one place where nobody else but the government was to be situated. And so you know, the Democrats have talked about Shrinking the size of the district to on Lee the federal buildings again If you read the intent of the Constitution that wasn't what was intended, and it's actually Way too short cut what would have to be on amendments process that would have an amendment go to the Constitution to create DC as a separate state. And you know, that's just not going to see the light of day in this generation. So I think that's a little bit, uh, on the Democratic side going to, um, a shortcut, trying to figure out a way to add to Senate seats in the House seat. Or more to balance out Congress and what is perceived to be a GOP jail Geographic exactly advantage, particularly with Iron red Hold on the west that is very slightly populated. So what would be the initiative? If the sentiments are Hey, we definitely want to do this. If if this were to happen, what would have to happen? Well, if you wanted to do it correctly, they would have to be a Congress. We have to pass an amendment two thirds each house and then we sent to the states and three quarters of the states would have to approve it in order for DC to become a state. Don't see that happening in any in any politics. The other proposal that they're talking about is to. Essentially it is within the gut The power of Congress to shrink the size of the federal the the amount of Federal sovereignty to just the buildings. And so the population areas of D C would be free to incorporate themselves and become a state and ask for admission to the union. No one's ever really done it in this particular means on federal territory. So how that would play out is not very clear. I don't think that right now there is Despite what the Democrats say about a united front on this. I don't think that there is the sentiment to do that at this time. Hardship. Thank you for that. I was curious, and that helped so very much. Also curious about Scotty's And the Supreme Court of the United States. There is a question being presented about immigration, and this has to do about TPS or Temporary protected status. However, connected with this decision would be allowing green cards and this would be A component of this decision one way or the other. You're take on the status of this in court, and then secondarily Green cards. Why are they so valuable? Yeah, The the Scottish case is a function of certain people who are from our displaced because of earthquakes or natural disasters are eligible to come to the United States. On to reside here for a period of time until the areas they're back home or taking care of many of them came. Some came here illegally and then got TPS status because of something that happened in their country, And the question is whether or not those individuals will be eligible to get green cards to stay in the young stitch. And they were competing interests. Aural arguments on that will be heard. I believe today. On day will be decided that we're in, uh, decided in the fall. So, um, I think that you know, green cards are valuable because as a memory and coming in It is a theme the next best ticket to two semi permanent status in the United States. And so as long as you have a green card, you're good to go in terms of getting employment being taxed the only things that you can't do. Obviously you can't vote on D so it's so valuable to have that because it allows you to establish a semi permanent residents, the United States. Even though you're a foreign national Gotcha. Talking.

Norton pushes Washington DC Union Station redevelopment funding as a priority for Congress

"Eleanor Holmes Norton wants redeveloping and expanding Union station to be a priority for Congress. The union station expansion project is estimated to cost between 5.8 and $7.5 billion and Norton says Congress should put aside funding for it when considering the upcoming build back better infrastructure plan. The plan is estimated to have about $1 trillion for transportation projects and letters. Transportation Secretary Pete Buddha Judge Norton said that since Union Station is federally owned, and President Joe Biden has emphasized the need for greater investment in high speed rail that the project should be considered for funding in the plan. The union station revamp includes plans for new platforms, a new parking garage, a new bus facility and new retail and office space. Valerie Bonked

"Copper Beech Drive in Rock Creek Park has been closed to cars for most of the pandemic, creating a paradise for bikers, walkers and runners. Could that be permanent at an online Q and a session hosted by D. C. Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton, Rock Creek Park Superintendent Julia Washburn was asked about keeping up her beach drive closed to cars. We do plan when the city returns to Is four, which is normal operations for the city. The plan currently is to reopen. However, Washburn says there's been a lot of discussion among D C leaders about this and her agency is willing to listen. If it is permanently closed, there would have to be some plan for the more than 5000 cars a day that used the roadway prior to the pandemic. Kyle

Bill is back to make Washington, DC 51st state — still faces high hurdle in Senate

"The license plates for D C. Residents read in big, bold letters and taxation without representation. It's a rallying cry against D. C is the lack of direct voting power in the U. S. Congress as NPR's Barbara Sprint reports. Statehood advocates are hopeful that what was once seen as a liberal pipe dream is now gaining traction. 30 years ago, delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton first introduced a bill for Washington D. C. Statehood. She's back at it, and this time, she says, it feels different. We've gotten off of the wish list, too. On approach of a new reality. Norton says she's encouraged by national polls that suggest growing support for statehood and the record number of co sponsors. The House legislation and its Senate counterpart, have Her bill, which strength the size of the federal district and admit the remaining area as the nation's 51st state. But Republicans stand universally opposed, arguing it would take a constitutional amendment to admit D. C as a state. Here's Georgia Congressman Jody Hice during today's House oversight hearing, the Democratic Party attempting a political power grab of obtaining more senators, that's entirely what this is all about. That phrase power grab is a constant and GOP messaging on statehood, referring to the fact that the district votes overwhelmingly for Democrats and would likely elect two Democratic senators. But Norton tells NPR that at its core statehood is not about politics while we're looking for is equality with other Americans, especially since we pay the highest federal taxes per capita in the United States, she notes that D C has a population of over 700,000 residents larger than Wyoming and Vermont. Last year when the House first past Norton's bill, Republican Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas, dismissed that point. Wyoming is a well rounded working class state. New state of Washington would not be. It was a barb that stung many residents in the district, including business owner Deana Dorsey Calloway. You can't see me, but I'm having an emotional reaction. The eyes are watering probably hear my voice quivering of it, because Just it's disgusting. It's you're a sure of an entire population of people here in Washington, advocates argue statehood is also a civil rights issue, as most of DC's residents are minorities. We do believe this is one of the most important racial justice fights of our time that stash a Rhodes, campaign manager of 51 for 51, a statehood campaign from our perspective, leaving 700,000 mostly black and brown residents without a vote in Congress is racism. D C. Residents pay federal taxes and serve in the military but have no voting Congress. This is an injustice and honestly a stain on American democracy. Norton's bill is all but guaranteed passage in the House. There's broad support from Democrats in the Senate and the White House. But there's a road block. The Senate has a big brick wall in front of its called the Filibusters that house bills are passing and slamming right into. That's Ellie's up Nick of Fix our Senate, a campaign focused on eliminating the legislative filibuster, which requires a 60 senator threshold to advance most bills. Not all Senate Democrats are on board with eliminating the maneuver, arguing it's meant to protect the minority party. But unless that brick wall is eliminated or changed, D C statehood goes back to being on the Democratic wish list.

"The House Committee on Oversight and Reform is hearing arguments on a bill to establish Washington D. C. As the 51st State MPR's Jen Newman reports, the effort faces long odds with significant Republican opposition. The bill would create the state of Washington, D. C, which would stand for Douglas Commonwealth named for Frederick Douglass. Eleanor Holmes Norton, who represents the district in Congress, as a nonvoting delegate. Says the more than 700,000 people who live in D C deserve representation. Do you think pays more federal taxes for capita than any state any state already in the union, the country's 51st state would consist of 66 out of the 68 square miles of the present day federal district. The remaining two square miles would be turned into a new capital and consist of the major federal buildings and monuments.

Washington, DC Statehood Bill Introduced By Senate Democrats

"Now you know this has been on the wish list of democrats for quite some time along with a promoting of puerto rico to statehood as well. Now that's compensation for a different time. But you had senator tom carper. He's democrat out of delaware leading over three dozen of his democrat colleagues to introduce companion bill for washington dc statehood gesture on tuesday. Now remember a similar. Bill passed the house last year. Now will face well pretty much. A democrat controlled senate to determine if dc will become the fifty first state but is that even possible. Well i found this piece. I pulled this back in early january out of the washington post. And it's pretty indepth piece about dc statehood. Bottom line is these. Dc statehood still faces a number of high hurdles not only in the narrowly divided senate but yes in public opinion as well. Think about this. A two thousand nine thousand nine gallup poll found that nearly two-thirds of us opposed dc statehood. So why is in dc already a state. well we need to look at the constitution washington. Dc's founding is enshrined in the constitution which provides that the district not exceeding the constitution. Not exceeding ten miles. Square would become the seat of the government of the united states now for a brief period of time after the city's creation back in seventeen ninety residents -joyed voting rights and were allowed to cast ballots as residents of maryland or virginia but those rights ended shortly after congress moved into town and the new capital in eighteen hundred and pass the district of columbia organic act of eighteen. O one the act stripped dc residents of their rights to vote in all federal elections including for president and gave congress oversight of the city. Have you ever seen a dc washing a plate license plate. You know what it says you know with. The slogan is taxation without representation. Now the district was not afforded presidential electors until the passage of the twenty-third amendment. Back in one thousand. Nine hundred sixty one. Its residents didn't get a non voting delegates in the house until nineteen seventy so begs the question. How can congress change this well. Those opposed to making dc estate have argued that statehood for dc can't happen without a constitutional amendment. They say that the founders intended the entire district to serve as the seat of federal government not as state but legislation put forth by non voting delegate. Eleanor holmes norton every year since nineteen ninety-one would not eliminate the seat of government that the constitution calls for in stead her bill which shrink the national capital to a small complex of federal buildings while allowing the rest of the district to become a state proponents of statehood for their part argue that this plan preserves federal enclave. Whose only requirement is that. It can't exceed ten square miles and escapes the need for a constitutional amendment. Nothing simple as that outstanding questions remain over. What would happen to the three electoral college votes. Currently afforded to the district when it becomes a smaller that role enclave. And some have wondered whether the twenty-third amendment would have to be repealed. So that the few residents of the federal enclave namely we're talking about those residing at sixteen hundred pennsylvania avenue don't retain them so what needs to happen for dc to become state. Well the bill to make these estate obviously has enough supports in the house to pass again and jordi leader steny hoyer pledged to bring it to vote with backing from speaker. Nancy pelosi by your indeed even though the senate is pretty evenly split. Well let's just say it's a tough road to hoe in the senate democrats occupy half the seats in that chambers. Thanks to the victories of ossoff and wore knock In georgia both of whom support would no surprise there. And then you've got vice president.

B. I. the headline on the fox news website FBI Colin Hey love their Collins noose found in Bubba Wallace's NASCAR garage was there since last year since last year the FBI determined that a noose found in a NASCAR NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace's garage at Talladega superspeedway on Sunday had been there since at least last year according to the federal bureau of investigation a statement issued by U. S. attorney Jay E. town said that the investigation that concluded that no federal crime was committed the statement reads the FBI learned about garage number four where the noose was found they call it a noose was assigned to Bubba Wallace last week the investigation also revealed evidence including authentic video confirmed by NASCAR that the news out of the garage number four was in that garage as early as October two thousand nineteen they keep calling it news although the news is now known to have been in garage number for two thousand nineteen nobody could have known Mr Wallace would be assigned garage number for last week well unless they have Sybil the soothsayer during the day no news placing a garage assigning further details were not immediately released the FBI said no charges would be pursued in relation to the incident the FBI has completed its investigation at Talladega superspeedway it's not just a speed right it's a superspeedway and determined that Bubba Wallace was not the target of a hate crime how about white people were kill all we spot but is that a hate crime when somebody spray painted kill all weeds we know what they meant you know I I'm pretty sure they met but they can't spell because LA public school system has been run by Democrats for so long that no one can spell anymore illiteracy is really the order of the day in fact you know a lot of people in America they like misspelling things they misspelled movie titles and song titles and and then we raise our children thinking that this is going to be good for them that was a mistake so the FBI is completed there is no hate crime NASCAR said in a release after the findings the FBI report concludes and photographic evidence confirms that the garage door pull rope fashioned like a noose had been positioned there since early last fall again if it's a nuisance it is a sufficient maybe for a house cat or Adam Schiff and beyond that I'm not sure that you'd be able to get around any any actual next what was the only full time African American driver on the circuit apparently some part time drivers on the circuit had become a target for some critics of NASCAR in recent weeks as the face of the series response to the current social justice movement taking place across the country and its decision to ban the Confederate flag from its events okay you know there it is the internet's car family showed support for him in the wake of the discovery of the news with all fellow drivers and their crews standing behind him in pit lane before that geico five hundred they got another pro ball out of the thing geico does and good insurance at a fair price and I got to get this because I think it used to be that government employee insurance company and then it got so gigantic because the government cruise so much like Astrid anybody can anybody can join and on on Monday as the invocation was given at the national anthem played so the pre race deal was probably one of the hardest things I've ever had to witness in my life an emotional Bubba Wallace said after the race and it was emotional about it and and all this stuff now no he said I I think there's a great opportunity for Bubba to design a new garage door pull I suspect that it will involve a rope with a loop on the end comes from Canada maybe have a big job but really if you want to use one or two fingers to yank the garage door down you you might want to put a loop on it and and that yeah I've seen the pictures you've probably seen the pictures and all that now with that step let's go to what the this story is by CBS sports CBSSports Gabriel Fernandez typed it up Bubba Wallace explains how he heard of noose found in his garage reacts to FBI investigation of the story begins hours after the FBI ABS NASCAR revealed that Bubba Wallace was not subjected to hate crime when a noose was found in his garage prior to Sunday's Cup series race at Talladega the driver of the number forty three and has the black lives matter wraparound it appeared on CNN for an interview with host don lemon asked about now I mean here's let let let me start at the beginning here because Wallace said that I I how did you find out about the news and and he was telling about it and he said the NASCAR president Steve Phelps the president of NASCAR asked to meet with him in person about a very serious matter and when the it says when he eventually did meet with the driver I I don't you know who cares about the backstory that helps the president of NASCAR broke down in tears while informing Wallace about the noose that'd been found Wallace also mention felt saying something about I hate crime all right so the present of NASCAR get bit because there is crying and that's correct and and everybody's cry N. as cards are really a weepy of service how much with a moonshine runners of yester year that there do you know about baby shoes of of NASCAR and outlets with that let's go to him so he got a call he didn't he's like I I didn't know anything about it the the president NASCAR call them and and started crying like a little girl and said there's a noose in your and that's it I mean look he's the only black guy NASCAR if true as James Clyburn likes to say if true that that would be a you know a a very real thing okay who would do something like that what kind of rectal aperture would do something like that and it turns out the answer is nobody which is good news and then.

Continue to exist. One of some belies with an actual walled become president. That extraordinary piece of video of Dr Martin Luther King junior's reaction to the Berlin Wall in nineteen sixty four feel strikingly relevant today as Donald Trump holds the federal government hostage over five point seven billion dollars that he's demanding to build his own border wall to lockout nonwhite immigrants a wall. The American far right is demanding. And which Trump promised that Mexico would pay for joining me now is congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton represents Washington DC congresswomen, thank you so much time this morning, I and that when are brilliant actually are intern found that found that piece of sound amazing. I have not seen it before. And thought I know a lot about Dr king when Donald Trump is asked about the morality or immorality of building a wall. I wanna play you a piece of what he has said about that. Listen. Walls are not immoral. In fact, they are the opposite of a moral because they will save many lives and stop drugs from pouring into our country. Your thoughts on that real sharp dichotomy between what Dr king said about walls, and what Donald Trump did. Well, Dr king and Trump we're talking about the same thing a wall, which is a barrier to say keep out you don't belong here. We don't want to see you no matter what I law says. That's immoral Democrats. Of course, have never been against walls of all kinds of their their walls. And they are this technology, and there are many ways to make sure that our country. In fact, has barriers on a lot of talking joy past each other. When we use words like walls because that means they concrete structure that says none of you are welcome here. And that's part of the problem. We're having in the in the congress today, and we don't have a president who can bring us together. So that we're all talking about the same thing for goodness sake. Yeah. And now play you the vice President Mike Pence who had some things to say we know that tomorrow, Dr Martin Luther King's national holiday here. Is what Mike Pence had to say about Donald Trump and king's legacy? The hearts and minds of the American people are thinking a lot about it being the weekend where we remember the life and work of the Reverend Dr Martin Luther King junior. One of my favorite quotes from Dr king was now is the time to make real the promises of democracy. You think of how he changed America? He inspired us to change through the legislative process to become a more perfect union. That's exactly what President Trump is calling on the congress to do. Well. Wow. You're thought it was it was on point until they got to the Trump part. Of course, because we would ask the president to do just that we ought to be glorifying, and what king indeed accomplished fifty years ago, he indeed lead the country to three civil rights acts even the district. I represent didn't have any self government. And didn't have anybody like me to represent them in congress. And now we're going for vote on statehood. So we've got to remember on king's birthday the progress. We've made at the same time we can't allow vice-president Pence to get away with cleansing. The president and Martin Luther King's. I'm not Martin Luther King's birthday. Yeah. Particularly after look, look what happened at Charlottesville. What does Mark Penn say what what is president Pence said about the president equating the anti-semites and the racists who walked to Charlottesville by saying there was of course, on both sides of fault. What what does the president say about that? What does he say about Steve king and the congress? The body which is, sir. Where the president I said not one word to say.

And I'll give Chris Hayes a little bit of credit here from MSNBC in. Now, he he asked the question, and then he followed up with it. Our diversity is not reflected in the leadership. Wow. So you wanted her gum? But because you got a bunch of white people weapon to be congressman Democrats who say the same thing. Now, all of a sudden, it's a problem is it because Nancy Pelosi is a wom at bolsa people who signed up on the thing are men. This is crazy good. We're watching the Democrats eat their own on this. And Alexandria, concert Cortez as a racist. I have to say about this. But you can read it on my blog my blog at campway dot com. We blocked on today. Yes. We did. This is going to be fun. I know being out of power. I don't like it. I don't like it at all. How ever having said that we're going to have a lot of fun because this woman I think is going to be the gift that just continues to give to us every single day every single day. She is in office. We're going to get some more. Just stupidity. Can I say that I did say that was dumb yesterday? The she was more than dumb a Representative. Jim Himes, Jim Himes. That the democrat Connecticut, he thinks Nancy Pelosi has a lot of support their swinging against their swinging in favor of her where do you stand? You know, we're we're heading into a messy early January because it would appear from that letter that this group has enough enough members to prevent Nancy Pelosi who will get the majority of the caucus vote to be the speaker from actually becoming the speaker on the floor, and as I've urged some people that I know in that group to think about then what then what I mean, what do you have next? And here's where Jim Hines. He brings it on home. It was good to cut off the head Nancy Pelosi. But but do we have a plan? Is there a plan? Is there a plan for all this look there's a whole conversation to be had about whether the democratic leadership, you know, is changing fast enough. You know, they're obviously younger members who are interested in positions that are not those top three positions. That's a very fair conversation to have. But I've been encouraging people I know on that letter to ask themselves. What then what's the plan? What are we gonna do? And the reality is, and I think the Eleanor Holmes Norton. She she brought she she she she said this. I don't part of me is torn I would love to see the Democrats run to the left. And I don't think America is socialist yet, you know, we're heading that direction. But I don't think it's fast as the left thinks that they are. I don't think that this this election, this it gives them the mandate that they think that they have. But I don't want to give them any power whatsoever. So that means no, these young, socialists. No. And there's so many advantages to having Nancy Pelosi. They're not that she might work with the president. I don't know that she would. But I don't think she's a socialist. She'd be trying to bring the party back to the meadow at that would be a good thing. Eleanor Holmes Norton agrees with me, how big of a deal how big of a sign is it that this many dams are publicly saying, no confidence. Not so big. Nancy Pelosi.

That's what a rigged economy looks like. What rigged economy does not look like is an employer and an employee negotiating over what their salaries should be. Depending on how skilled the worker is and how independent his particular skill set, how badly the employer needs work and what the overall health of the economy is and that or that particular industries economy will determine what the wages for that particular worker. And unrig, Connie is the government stay out of things. Goes on to say, this is who's writing this ditor. All right. This is Raskin of Maryland. Eleanor Holmes Norton in their say, all this legislation is saying is that taxpayers shouldn't be responsible for paying the expenses of workers employed by multibillion dollar companies. The basic premise of the American dream is that if you work hard and you work for a company that's doing well, you should earn enough to support your family. No, that's not. That is absolutely not what the American dream is. The American dream is if I come here and bust my ass, there's a chance I might be able to make something out of myself. It's not a guarantee. It's not the promise of a house and money in the Bank and retirement, a gold watch and being able to feed your family. That's not what the American dream is. The American tree dream is says, I don't have to relegate myself to slavery. I'm not in a class system that only allows me to go so far. It American dream says, there are no limits on what you can achieve here, but it's. Based on your own personal desire to achieve it, your talents, your skills, drive your mission. But if you have all of them in the sky's the limit, that's what the American dream is. He said, instead we have an absurd situation where companies and trillions of dollars market cap. The wealthiest in the world with employers, don't make enough to support their basic needs for themselves and their families. What's really sad about this, and this is the unintended consequences of government and government decisions. His which really sad about this is this ends up hurting the very people that Bernie Sanders is trying to protect because what do you think is going to happen if this law passes? And now Amazon is forced to pay one hundred percent of any subsidies that these people receive from the government. If they're working for Amazon, do you think Amazon is going to be incentivized to hire these folks or disincentivize to hire them? Yeah, you better believe it. They're going to take a look at these people and the ones that they think either are on government assistance or who are likely to be in a position to take it. They simply won't hire them. Or they'll hire his few of them as humanly possible in order to keep their costs down. In the end, what you'll have is Bernie Sanders will do what he always does.

Calling response people need to be able to speak out and not simply to here Hate speech Because we're gonna teach one another I'm very grateful to, my, very good friend and colleague congressman Jamie Raskin for partnering with me and this event that represents. His district and mine is well so I'm gonna ask you a hard question If you think you know the answer You're, not thinking deeply enough The question is do we know how? To respond to hate speech do we know how to respond to? The increasing visibility of haters and they have increased in large numbers since two thousand sixteen White supremacist zero Neo Nazis LBJ teach Hugh? Haters hate everybody who doesn't look like or fleet like themselves My friends they are no longer underground We could discuss what is surface them but. That's not, going to solve the problem We, know this much that they are. Very brazen win for the first time. In memory and I am a native, Washingtonian they have come to the nation's capital So how should we regard this My colleague and. I wanted to think this through Simply have a kind of trained response Well they're coming to the nation's capital Perhaps we can turn the tables They have, given us thank you very. Much a. Rare opportunity to expose they hate I, don't know if you have followed Their emergence. In other. Districts perhaps you think that is awful But, street fights don't expose they hate Nor do I believe any of us would think. It isn't adequate response to their hate I. Can, tell you this much shutting them damn. Does the opposite of exposing. Their hate Not only Do we drown out them Own response to them, 'cause nobody's interested infant response they're just interested. In who wins the Malay Worse much worse we put the. Constitution of the United States. And the first amendment on inside not outs Now of course I don't mean responses It's natural people to Applaud or here so bu-but but I'm talking about the kinds of responses of the hate haters have had around. The country until now So got all agree on one proposition constitution protects all speech the constitution protects outrageous speech the constitution protects the constitution yes Cortex even hate. Speech Perhaps some of you, do not remember That, speech what many of us are four Was shouted down as well and I mean. For human, rights and equal rights for everybody So there's no such, thing as a first amendment. That favors our speech over there the first amendment is neutral Well, the growing number of haters Does that mean there's? Nothing, we can do about this There is something we can. Do here's something we didn't have anything to do with I don't know if anybody here from Arlington, because I, read about, this in the Washington, Post. Paneling four fires hate flyers suddenly appeared in Arlington Virginia One person, takes one, person saw, this these flyers these, hateful Wild fires that essentially of the same as. The kind of speech that's being brought, to the, nation's capital This, one woman she might a few posters and she and her neighbors planted these few posters it said hey has no place here my God Run, on those posters socially quickly got, you hundred and, fifty and when the post interviewed her she was going trying to find more. Because people, say, I need one of. Those posters Most powerful Fool hate posters that they somehow by the way they weren't put up on. Anybody's lawn they managed to distribute the blossoming of hate has no place here throughout this Arlington community Why not more responses Like that Gene Pointing the finger We are. Not nearly responding this is, the first event the kinds of preemptory Of the weekend And we've been meeting with with rabbis and. Imams and ministers they're gonna be services. In weekend there all kinds of responses all. Across the region and of course there's gonna be a tremendous keynote and panel here that will lead us But above all depends upon you To. Get up and speak your mind The speakers know something about effective initiatives there'll be plenty of time for you This is an opportunity for, you to set an example for how. The region needs to respond to. Haters who dared to come to our. Region thank you very much for coming Eleanor Holmes, Norton congressional.
