Senator Shaheen’s Refusal To Condemn Violence On Streets Undermines Peaceful Protests
Concord, NH – New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Stephen Stepanek released the following statement today calling for Senator Jeanne Shaheen and New Hampshire Democrats to denounce the rioting and looting occurring as part of the protests happening across the country:
“Every American has the constitutional right to peacefully protest. However, Granite Staters know the difference between peaceful protests and violent riots and looting – which serves to harm innocent lives and inflict immeasurable property damage. Instead of maintaining her silence and thereby undermining the legitimacy of peaceful demonstrations, Senator Shaheen, Congressman Pappas, Congresswoman Kuster, and Joe Biden must condemn the rioters, looters, and members of Antifa destroying American cities. Their selfish actions will not be condoned and the fullest extent of the law must be enforced."
