FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: June 1, 2020
ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Ann Schockett, President of the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW), issued a video statement today regarding the killing of George Floyd and the resulting nationwide civil unrest, and voiced support for President Donald Trump to designate Antifa as a domestic terrorist organization.
"On the heels of our entire country being severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, a crisis of epic proportions from loss of loved ones to economic hardships, our nation was witness to a horrible, grave tragedy last week in Minnesota, the killing of George Floyd by a law enforcement officer. We mourn for this senseless loss. Justice will be served," Schockett said in the video statement.
"Yet, instead of being able to come together at a delicate time when our nation is reopening and rebuilding, as well as mourning for the loss of George Floyd and others, we’re being torn apart, purposefully and with an agenda by the far Left and the real fascists, which is Antifa, " she continued. "They are using the distress of our country to cause chaos and devastation through rioting and violence to prevent our country from coming together. Destruction at any cost is their goal. And joining them in mob mentality, setting our country ablaze, are more agitators and criminals."
Schockett voiced the NFRW's support of President Donald J. Trump to designate Antifa as a domestic terrorist organization.
