Your comment stated that the video represented all Trump supporters. So, I asked if you generalized much. I then followed that up by stating that it did not represent me or anything that I stand for. To me, that pretty much condemns the attacks. It's okay for you to call out some anonymous guy on the net, but condemn someone else for what you feel was calling you out

All I can do is shake my head. One person is dead. Many more are injured. It's sickening and it's terrorism.

As for the political side. It's disheartening as a minority to find that once again, Trump won't denounce white supremacy. Just like he didn't with David Duke while on the campaign trail.

I'm severely disappointed in Trump's statement on the issue. Times like these is when we need someone with actual leadership abilities and inspiring comments. Trump showed none of that. his statement seemed half-assed at best, uninspiring and tone deaf.

but hey, he can't really get on TV and slam the people that voted for him.
And where was your disappointment with Obama when all those riots were breaking out last year?

I remember all the violent protest when Trump got elected and many of the liberal posters on here where like, "omg a few violent protesters are not a full representation of the left. You guys are such bigots." And none of them said anything when Obama didn't say a damn thing in reference to all the craziness the left was pulling.
Today some moron runs over a bunch of people and it's Trumps fault and of course we also got to blame "whitey". Because somehow all us white people rise up at 0530 to the sound of Horst-Wessel-Lied, put on our finest Hugo Boss SS uniforms, and then hold a meeting where we discuss new ways of oppressing minorities. This is followed by a nice brunch and some lively goose stepping.

Trumps comment seemed appropriate--hard to criticize really.


President Donald Trump told reporters: "We are closely following the terrible events unfolding in Charlottesville, Virginia. We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides. It has been going on for a long time in our country -- not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama. It has been going on for a long, long time. It has no place in America." CNN.
Appropriate?!?!?! Hard to criticize?!?!?! You know, some of you are proving to be a bit naive and appear to live in a bubble.

Here's how trump's statement was received by the "alt-right" aka white supremacists/nationalists:

President Trump?s response to the violence that left at least one dead in Charlottesville, Virginia ? where he condemned ?this egregious display of hatred? ? was taken as an endorsement of the alt-right by Nicholas Fuentes, an alt-right online TV host for Right Side Broadcasting Network.

?President Trump?s comments perfectly aligned with our side of the protest today, as they were intentionally ambiguous to go along with Washington?s speech codes, yet still managed to condemn the violent Left,? said Fuentes.

Please understand that Trump lacks moral conviction. Fundamentally, this guy DOES NOT represent who we truly are as a nation. If he does we are thoroughly fucked. He's surrounded himself with nationalists and populists: i.e., Bannon & Miller - both extremists. He is singlehandedly destroying the Republican Party and most are sitting around watching it happen. Sure a little shake-up can be beneficial, but the people he's pandering to is not good for this country and the world over.

How about this one back in 1925, in Washington DC?

Oh wait ...

Edit: I guess MLK, Jr. should have stayed off the road too. I'm sure that would have been just as powerful of a statement.

...neither do these. Wouldn't it be reasonable if the conservatives in this forum remember this next time they post some ultra-left shenanigans and blame the "liberals" and "libertards" for the actions of a section of the left. They represent liberal ideals as much as these racist ultra rights represent the right do... I hope.

When all else fails (and there are lots of failures) speak on Obama; slam Hillary; oh....and we won. Blah...blah...blah.

You sound like Trump talks...a 5th grader. "What about Obama"....give it a rest. If he's the greatest to ever do it Obama shouldn't matter. Instead he's on track to be the most polarizing president ever.

This was an abysmal failure on Trump's part. Since his pathetic speech, he's had several hours to echo the sentiments of Cruz, Rubio, Sessions, and other republicans. But nothing!

No, wrong. On one side of the Charlottesville rally was the white nationalists and white supremacists. On the other side were those protesting against white nationalism and white supremacy.

Now, tell me with a straight face that both sides have a long history of "hatred, bigotry and violence". Seems to me only one side has that long history.

If you want to bring up history, why stop there? Feel free to bring up all of the violence against blacks, Chinese, Mexicans, etc. during the last 150 years. Or have you conveniently forgotten all those? I love conservative amnesia.

Another ignorant comment from someone that's so clouded by their political ideals. You don't know my political affiliation. If you have done your research, you'll see I have been also critical about things that Trump has done. I don't align myself as a Republican or a Democrat.

This thread was started to talk about what happened at a white supremacist rally. It's you all with such a stick up your rears with Trump that you all get a rise out of anything you can remotely pin to him.

You all retorted about how weak Trump's condemnation of the what happened at this protest and I retorted if you all applied the same criticism about Obama's lack of condemnation of the riots last year. When you cry about a rebuttal challenging your uneven application of your standards as a "5th grader" response, I guess having a mirror placed in front of you hurts doesn't it?

One more thing. At least you recognize the firm condemnation of the heinous act at the protest by Republicans. In comparison to last year's riots, we can say the entire Democratic party was united in their weak condemnation of the actions of the idiot rioters.

So, just to be clear, you're agreeing that Trump's condemnation of this protest was "weak", right?

He should have been more direct with his condemnation. It's reminiscent of the controversy that brewed up during his presidential campaign in regards to David Duke. With someone who has shown himself to not care what others think and has been very direct with some of his statements, this is pretty troubling.

But I'm not going to make the leap that he is a racist.

Nothing against your protests but dont fuckin block traffic and bang on people's cars that are trying to drive through.

North Dakota is working on a bill to protect drivers that hit protesters blocking traffic.

Lost in all of this is how the counter protesters escalated the situation by being physically confrontational. As much as many of us would denounce the white supremacist movement as a whole, this country was built on free speech. It doesn't mean free speech as long as the majority agrees with it. And the white supremacists had a permit to march.

Like clockwork, the snowflakes across the country take to the streets in response to the incident in Charlottesville...walking down highways, blocking traffic....yeah random commuters are all complicit to the things you're protesting against.
