Literally no one said that. Its an attitude that has been building for years here and shit like this is why. Congrats on helping strangle a dying forum even more.

Deport white supremacists.

He might not be. But George Soros is missing a suitcase full of cash somewhere. And this place still exists.

Conspiracy theories are so convenient.

Re: We are a nation of cowards for not discussing race issues....

Sadly, what we saw yesterday reminded me too much of the clashes between the Communists and Nazis in Germany between 1927 and 1933.

As soon as the first group started chanting "Blood and Soil!" (a translation of the German phrase Blut und Boden, a famous phrase that was heavily used by the Nazis as a rallying cry), you KNEW it was going to attract the antifa crowd and an ugly confrontation happen--and happen it did. Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe should have aggressively called out state police and kept those two groups far apart, in my humble opinion.

Drawing same conclusions as me. It's always easier when someone else says it.

I think an "echo chamber" is fine when Nazis are involved. There should be no "pro" side.

Too bad the President doesn't understand that.

If our option is between echo chamber and fucks playing devil's advocate against the victims of Nazis



You want better discussion in here? Find a party and president that will turn away literally the worst people on earth.

I was surprised to see how many people weren't even aware of this situation last night at work.

His purpose was to intimidate people protesting against Confederate monuments. That is terrorism, plain and simple. He should be prosecuted for such, and under Virginia law, that's a capital offense.

Madison Square Garden, 1934:



Less than 10 years later, everyone in there was singing a different tune.

Wonder how long it'll take the Trumpers to wake up.

...or on social media today. A van driven by a muslim runs people over in London and within minutes my FB newsfeed is filled with people posting "prayers for London" and changing their profile pics. Charlottesville happens... and 36 hours later... crickets.

I'm sure it will spread to other cities, and when a white male is killed, the media...and some on this forum will simply because all white people are racist, you know.

That's what both Cornel West and Richard Spencer said, and when those two agree on something, you know there's a major problem.

You have one side chanting that they're "not going to be replaced"...while on the other side, signs are displayd saying, "My Heritage is to kill Nazis"...and you don't act to keep them apart?

It's sweeping assumptions like that, which put you into the same category as the people you accuse.

Totally agree. Where were the police? The barriers to keep vehicles out of the way of protesters?

It's almost like it was wanted for this to happen so certain people and groups could say later, "See? Trump is to blame!"

Trump told his supporters to beat up protestors and that he'd pay their legal fees. So yeah, I think he is to blame when they do what he tells them to do. And he doubled-down by not actually condemning white supremacists.

I guarantee that if that shitheel driver voted, he voted for President Pussygrabber.

Article doesn't say who he voted for, but I agree with you.

Will President Trump pay for his bail and other legal fees?
