ROCHESTER, NH— Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter (NH-01) released the following statement regarding white nationalist violence in Charlottesville:

“White nationalism is dangerous, despicable and has no place in our country. We must all strongly and specifically denounce today’s racist, un-American violence in Charlottesville. There are not many sides to this story. This is clear evil.

“The cowards who are waving Nazi flags in Virginia today are free thanks to my parents’ generation of Nazi fighters. During World War II my dad’s ship was hit by Nazis. 200 American sailors died, but he fought on. My uncle flew day bombing missions over Germany. My mom worked in a shipyard. Today I can speak out against fascism because they were heroes who saved us from Nazis.” pulled the following videos from YouTube. They are not part of the Shea-Porter news release, but are posted to show the events today.
