Congressman says white supremacists and civil rights protesters are both ‘disgusting’

In remarks during a CNN interview, U.S. Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI) equates civil rights protesters and white supremacists.

He said:

“Both are disgusting, for different ways.”

In his mind, pushback against oppression and white supremacists is in the same category as an entire ideology driven by hate and a wish to erase all nonwhite people from this country. It’s just another path to normalizing white supremacy.
