"Unite the Right" (Alt-right, neo-Confederate, neo-Nazi, militia, white nationalist, and white supremacist) met in Charlottesville, Virginia on August 11th and 12th to protest the removal of Confederate monuments and memorials from public spaces, specifically the Robert Edward Lee Sculpture in Charlotteville's Emancipation Park

Speakers included Tim Treadstone, Augustus Invictus, David Duke, Richard Spencer, Mike Enoch, and League of the South founder Michael Hill.

Counter protesters from Black Lives Matter and Antifa showed up during the protest and violence broke out between the two groups. During the commotion, a car driven by one of the rally attendees plowed into a crowd of counter-protesters, killing a woman and injuring 19 others, five critically. At least 19 people were injured in "street brawls" and other violence at the rally.

A police helicopter monitoring the response to the rally violence crashed, killing the two troopers on board.

President Trump condemned the violence in the "strongest words possible" in a speech from his Bedminster, NJ golf course.

Donald J Trump built a white nationalist brain trust in his administration consisting of white supremacists Steve Bannon, Sebastian Gorka, Stephen Miller, Michael Anton and has racist and bigoted Jefferson Beauregard Sessions as Attorney General tells us that Donald J Trump supports bigotry and hatred. THAT is the reason why Trump did not call-out the Alt-right, neo-Confederate, neo-Nazi, militia, white nationalist, and white supremacist groups by name.

So far the top excuses are:

1. He was scared, and surrounded by leftists.
Debunked, video shows he was on a relatively empty street and accelerated to 45 mph and plowed into a crowd 200 yards away.

2. His car was pushed.
Yeah right, pushed to 45 mph, wow...I want those guys on my NASCAR team next time I race.

3. He's really an anti-Trump leftist.

4. The car had no license plates.
Yeah, those same invisible people who pushed his car to 45 mph also magically attached Ohio license plate GVF 1111 mere seconds before impact.

5. Black Lives Matter

From Tim Sassoon:
American Jews who voted for Trump ought to consider carefully what they have done.

Madison Square Garden.
May 17, 1934 American Nazi convention.
We've reached that point again in America today.

Millions of people died just 70-80 years ago to wipe out this BS.

Do we need to do that again? Because we will.

Nazis either died in WW II or they were hunted down and imprisoned or executed.

Tolerance is a fine thing, but we can't tolerate intolerance.

Most entertaining part is watching the revisionists squirm.
For those that still believe the Nazis and KKK are violent left wing radicals, it makes perfect sense that they were attending a "unite the right" rally... explain THAT, idiots...
There's an eighteen month old living next door who ate all the Scrabble tiles and his poop makes more sense than that.

Nazism has always been a right-sided political spectrum philosophy.

...and the KKK was never "left wing." The KKK has always been CONservative. CONseratism has always been about racism and bigotry.

Yes, CONservative Democrats started the KKK and even wrote Jim Crow laws.

In 1964 when the Civil Rights Act was signed, CONservative Democrats switched to the Republican party to spite Lyndon Johnson. Richard Nixon also recruited the CONservative Democrats under his "Southern Strategy" effort.

While some CONservative Democrats remain in the Democratic party today and they're called Blue Dog Democrats, most CONservatives are in the Republican Party, today.


Racism and bigotry are not a Democrat or Republican ideology, but racism and bigotry are 100% CONservative ideologies.

The takeaway: CONservatism is the common thread to Democrat and Republican racism and bigotry AND to rightwing political philosophies like Nazism.

ps. It is not progressives who advocate ethnic purity - that would be a CONservative ideal. Progressives welcome All races and ALL faces, CONservatives do not.
