Does This Sound Like It Was About the Removal of a Statue?

This should be required viewing for every American.

"Fighting the parasitic class of anti-white people."

The Alt Left attacked "fine people" without a permit.  ~ Donald Trump

Trump said he was waiting to find out all of the facts; like David Duke was at the rally. 

Duke seemed to be one of the "fine people" in Trump's mind; a former Grand Dragon of the KKK.

This people expressing this hatred have been around for a long time.  The movements change names, but the ideas of exclusion don't change.

To Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell: "You cannot serve two masters."  It is time to denounce the President personally, by name, for his support of White Supremacists.

If I were to lay odds, I'd say you've got a 15% chance from Ryan and a 2% chance from McConnell

My wife sent me this so I just watched it.

kosh, Ryan made some statement about bigotry, but did not name Trump.  Unfortunately, I think they will treat this like a school shooting; just wait a few days knowing that the public attention span is about 24 hours with the expectation that it will blow over.  Depressing.

Back channel sources say that Mitch McConnell is "upset".

I'm watching CNN and it was reported that Mitch is upset.  Fuck upset MItch.  Come out and speak out Mr Upset Does Nothing Obstruct The Last President for Eight Years Piece of Useless Crap.  COME OUT AND SPEAK THE NAME AND START THE PROCESS OF REJECTING HIM!!

It feels the same as it felt when we suffered other national tragedies, and I can't stop tearing up - off and on - and I'm no manic depressive, but the words of that lunatic and the response by DDuke has me terribly concerned this is just the beginning.  We are suffering a terrible loss and it keeps coming, loss after loss on so many levels.   I hate seeing our country suffer this.  We need someone to begin the process of leading the country and speaking the words most of us need to hear.    The joint chiefs made statements but they have to remain non political. And while that took courage, everyone is afraid of speaking this maniac's name.  I'm not buying the "base" answer at all.  Trumps numbers are going down.  The country is beginning to see him for what he is, EVEN his "base".  He'll always have supporters but he doesn't have anything close to a majority.

Heather Heyer's mother was on earlier today at her daughter's memorial.  The apple didn't fall far from the tree.  She urged dialogue, otherwise her daughter's death would have been for nothing.  I'm not sure there can be dialogue with anyone whose goal is to exterminate you.

Comment by Foolish Monkey on August 16, 2017 at 11:40am

yeah, I watched that.  she and Heather's dad were so touching and eloquent and have such large loving spirits.   I'm so sorry for them.  I can't imagine the loss.
