Romney invokes late father during the Civil Rights Movement amid protests

Saturday Utah Senator Mitt Romney tweeted:

This is my father, George Romney, participating in a Civil Rights march in the Detroit suburbs during the late 1960s—“Force alone will not eliminate riots,” he said. “We must eliminate the problems from which they stem.”

Earlier in the week, Romney wrote:

The George Floyd murder is abhorrent. Peaceful protests underscore the urgency of addressing injustices. But violence drowns the message of the protestors and mocks the principles of justice.
