(WJBK) - Social media was on fire following the chaos in Charlottesville and one tweet in particular from a former Michigan congressman is getting a lot of attention.
John Dingell had some choice words for the white supremacists that organized Saturday's rally.
Known as one of Twitter's power users, the 91-year-old World War II veteran got a lot of attention online once again, saying:
"I signed up to fight Nazis 73 years ago and I'll do it again if I have to. Hatred, bigotry and fascism have no place in this country."
The comment was retweeted more than 272,00 times and liked by more than 781,000 people as of this morning.
