Democrat Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse Says He Won’t Resign From WHITES-ONLY Beach Club

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Of course. It has just been reported that Whitehouse is also a a member of a Yacht club that lacks diversity. Only the American people can take a stand against this hypocrisy, by voting the Democrat Party out of office in 2022 and 2024.

And it won’t matter because the Democrat nazi party holds all the levers of power but most especially the media ministry of propaganda.

Whitehouse says family won’t resign from beach club

By The Hill, June 23, 2021

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) on Wednesday said he will not resign nor ask his family members to resign from an exclusive Newport beach club and said a reporter who asked him about his membership recently caught him “off guard.”

The senator, however, acknowledged that the media furor over his beach club membership has caused him to “assess all my affiliations and to consider whether any involve inequitable or exclusionary policies.”

He said he is a member of a sailing club that lacks diversity.

“I do own a boat and belong to a sailing club in Newport. While this club does not have exclusionary rules for membership, it does lack diversity,” he acknowledged. “Failing to address the sailing club’s lack of diversity is squarely on me, and something for which I am sorry.”

“I commit to working with the club and the community to build a more inclusive membership and to better connect with the local community,” he added.

The acknowledgement comes in the midst of a multiday media firestorm over Whitehouse’s membership in the prestigious Bailey’s Beach Club, which was described as an exclusive mostly white club in a 2003 New York Times profile.

Whitehouse, when caught on camera by GoLocalProv News on Friday morning, seemed apologetic when a reporter erroneously told him that the club, to which his family belongs, is an all-white establishment.

“I think the people who are running the place are still working on that and I’m sorry it hasn’t happened yet,” he responded.

But the club, which is also known as the Spouting Rock Beach Association, released a statement denying claims that it’s all-white or has discriminatory membership policies as “inaccurate and false.”

Whitehouse said he “made the mistake” of accepting the reporter’s premise that the club was “all-white” because he “wasn’t prepared for the question.”

“I then checked the assertion and was assured that, first, the assertion was wrong, there is diversity in the membership and there are non-white club members; and second, that improving diversity remains a priority and an active task for the club’s new board,” he said.
