You may have noticed that Republican Attorney General Candidate Doug Wardlow has been silent on social media today regarding the anniversary of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s historic “I Have a Dream” speech, and the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.
Perhaps it’s because of Wardlow’s extreme views on the law and the U.S. Constitution. Speaking at an event in Woodbury this May, Wardlow shared his view that:
“We should not have laws in this country or state based on ethnicity or race.
“And in fact, that’s a principle of the United States Constitution, the supreme law of the land. The Equal Protection Clause.
“So if the government is going to start creating policy based on ethnic disparities, based on racial disparities, and based on race, that’s repugnant to the Equal Protection Clause, which was put in place, the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, after we fought a Civil War, and hundreds of thousands of people died, to eliminate racial discrimination in its worst form, slavery.”
With views like these, Minnesotans deserve to know: Would Doug Wardlow enforce state and federal civil rights laws that Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. dedicated his life to fighting for?
