Olympia, WA – September 11, 2023
The Green Party of Washington Coordinating Council was shocked by the actions of Former Democrat U.S. House Member from 1993 to 2003, and 2008 Green Party presidential nominee Cynthia McKinney. McKinney on the morning of September 11, promoted an event hosted in part by white supremacist David Duke which characterized Jewish people as a “common enemy.”
In no uncertain terms, the Green Party of Washington condemns this event, its organizers, its promoters, and the vile hatred at its core.
The Green Party of Washington, as a full member of the Green Party of the United States federation, holds respect for diversity and anti-racism as a core belief. Cynthia McKinney has no current relationship or affiliation with the Green Party of Washington or the Green Party of the United States, and has not for years. We condemn her promotion of this event and call on all parties and organizations, including the Democratic Party with whom she served for a decade as a US House Representative to do the same.
