Countering intolerance in Arizona

The controversy surrounding the appearance of Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey in a photo with members of a well-known patriot movement group in Mohave County is a reminder of how extremists today are pushing the boundaries and moving into the mainstream.

We need to be vigilant in reminding public officials about who these groups are and what they represent. It was deeply unfortunate that the governor appeared in a photo with members of Patriot Movement AZ. Members of this particular group have been verbally abusive toward Hispanics, Native Americans and Muslims. There is nothing “patriotic” about this group.
