Demand Rockland GOP Chairman Garvey’s resignation!

This petition had 1,045 supporters

The Rockland County Republican Committee posted a blatantly antisemitic video to Facebook that has since been removed.  You can view it here:

It has been widely publicized and has so far been condemned by the ADL of NY/NJ, NY AG Tish James, the Republican Jewish Coalition, Governor Cuomo, and Congresswoman Nita Lowey.
We are calling for the immediate resignation of Rockland GOP Chairperson Lawrence Garvey for the production and posting of the video. Rockland County Executive Ed Day used the same “A Storm is Coming” rhetoric in a video for his last campaign. “The Storm is Coming” was a campaign speech by Joseph Goebbels in Nazi Germany. Both Garvey and Day had previously been made aware of the historical relevance.

The continuous hate and rhetoric promoted by the Rockland GOP are putting the entire Jewish community in danger. We are fearful for our families, homes, businesses, and synagogues. The hate must stop.

Republicans and Democrats must work together to make Rockland a better place, but the current leadership is irresponsible and Garvey must step down.

Please sign this petition and demand Chairman Garvey’s resignation!
