Statement from DFL Party Chairman Ken Martin


ST PAUL – Today, Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor (DFL) Party Chairman Ken Martin released the following statement.  

“Inflammatory rhetoric from elected officials is counterproductive to addressing rising Islamophobia and antisemitism,” said DFL Party Chairman Ken Martin. “Over the last several years, hateful rhetoric from far-right leaders has fueled both Islamophobia and antisemitism. All DFLers should set a better example and avoid applying broad generalizations to entire groups of people. Part of our values as DFLers is our recognition of the humanity of both the Israeli and Palestinian peoples.”
