Mayor’s statement on Tree of Life Synagogue shooting

“Our hearts go out to the victims of today’s anti-Semitic terrorist attack. Today’s synagogue shooting follows a week of hate-fueled domestic terrorism, which started with a bomb sent to a prominent Jewish man. My father served in World War II to defeat Nazis and their hideous ideology. Is our generation up to the same task? To those who pretend white supremacy can be separated from the violence it engenders: It cannot. Hate-filled acts follow hate-filled words follow hate-filled thoughts.”
