I spent the weekend enjoying myself and deliberately stayed away from this mess.
Were the white nationalists truly bringing terror to a peaceful community or was it just white fascists and Prog fascists having a great time giving each other well deserved fantastic fascist beatings until it got too bloody?
Seems like an issue for Charlottesville citizens to sort out what sort of statues go up in Charlottesville parks, state lawsuit not withstanding. The white nationalists were essentially bused in from outside. The lady killed in Charlottesville lived in Charlottesville, where she was advocating for her town.
Some white maniac apparently drove into a crowd and killed a girl. Do Trump and all his Trumplings share some guilt in this death...just because. Way back a whole year ago a BLM black maniac assassinated 5 cops in Dallas; did Obama and his Obamites share guilt...just because.
Obama and Trump absolutely own their responses.
President Barack Obama said Friday that the nation was "horrified" after what he called "a vicious, calculated and despicable attack on law enforcement" in Dallas. The White House announced Friday evening that the President would cut short his European trip by one day and visit Dallas early next week.
Following Charlottesville...we all know Trump's vague comment. He also has yet to say anything about the bombing of the muslim site in Minnesota, although Sebastian Gorka (a senior white house aide) helpfully suggested that it may be a false flag attack by muslims on themselves.
The silence by the NRA on the shooting of Castile (legal carry, shot during pullover while reaching for his license) and their ads quietly promoting a race war...crossing the boundary from advocated for gun rights to something else.
Trump is pretty clearly working to not offend the white supremacist wing of his base, which is equally pretty clearly going to enrage a lot of folks on the left.
..all of this suggests this is going to end up in a very ugly place.
