Charleston, W.Va. – The events yesterday in Washington, D.C. were disturbing and un-American. The attempt to take over the United States Capitol leaves a stain on the history of our great democracy. The behavior of those involved was illegal, immoral, and disloyal. These acts of domestic terrorism must not be tolerated. 

The West Virginia Manufacturers Association joins with many state and national business and industry groups in condemning yesterday’s assault on the United States Capitol. We believe that any West Virginians who engaged in these illegal actions, do not positively reflect the values and vision that manufacturers have for our state. 

We urge rejection of ongoing separatist rhetoric and a return to the civility that truly makes America great. The peaceful transfer of power and presidential authority is a sacred value and be should protected.
