Congressman Palazzo reacts to Charlottesville riots

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) – Congressman Steven Palazzo has reacted to the weekend violence at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Palazzo was in Oak Grove Tuesday to present a legislative update to a meeting of Forrest-Lamar Republican Women.

“There are a lot of ignorant people in the world who don’t take their citizenship in America very seriously,” Palazzo said.

“For Americans to enact violence on other Americans and not be respectful of their beliefs and their ideals and their thoughts, it’s not the America I grew up in.”
