Gasconade County Democrat Club condemns ‘hateful words,’ ‘racial slurs’ painted on house

Gasconade County Democrat Club (

To the Editor:

The Gasconade County Democrat Club strongly condemns the hateful words and racial slurs spray painted on a house near Owensville recently. Words matter including those of our leaders. 

We are so grateful to live in a community which has come together in support of the family involved since the house also burned resulting in the family losing everything. Love will always trump hate.

As our banner said in the fair parade, we believe in neighbors helping neighbors and we are ALL neighbors!
