在八月寄出的信中. 3, 司法部长 Letitia James 警告 ReAwaken America Tour 活动的组织者，她的办公室可能会采取法律行动，如果 “极端分子” rhetoric by speakers spurred violent or unlawful conduct.
The two-day event at the Cornerstone Church in Batavia, midway between Buffalo and Rochester, is scheduled to feature President Donald Trump’s son, 埃里克·特朗普, former national security adviser Michael Flynn and others. 詹姆士’ letter was addressed to Flynn and event organizer Clay Clark and sent in care of the church.
Cornerstone Church Pastor Paul Doyle said there was no validity to the suggestion that the event was promoting racism or violence.
“I take exception to the words she uses, like extreme views,” he told The Associated Press. “What’s that mean? What’s extreme? We’re conservative Christians. Now we’re extreme?”
He said the letter had scared members of his congregation, 一组约 150 至 200 人, which he described as multi-ethnic and multi-racial.
“It feels like she’s trying to intimidate me. We’re a small-town church,” Doyle said.
