O’ROURKE: “When we allow this country to be defined along lines of race and ethnicity and religion, we allow a commander-in-chief to not only welcome that but the violence that follows, to define our laws, our institutions and any ethical or moral boundaries. The end of that road is the end of this idea of America. The end of an America where every single one of us can belong and have a future. I’m confident that if at this moment we do not wake up to this threat, then we, as a country, will die in our sleep. The response to this has to be that each of us make a commitment to see clearly, to speak honestly, and to act decisively in this moments of truth.”
