To say he does not associate with "these folks" and have Steve Bannon just down the hall from Trump demonstrates that he does.

DURHAM, N.C.—Sheriff’s deputies have begun arresting protesters who tore down a monument to Confederate veterans in front of the old Durham County courthouse Monday night.

 

Takiyah Thompson, who climbed a ladder and put a rope around the statue before a crowd tugged it off its base, was arrested by deputies around 4:45 p.m., immediately following a press conference at North Carolina Central University, in which she had defended her actions and others demanded amnesty for all involved.* A spokesperson for the sheriff’s office confirmed that deputies had begun executing warrants, but she did not immediately know how many.

dont they have a right to free speech too tx? didnt you say there are always 2 sides?

 

Actually the way they did it was dumb. when the cops are just hanging back watching..they are filming.

 


RIGHT to free speech-what am I missing??

So, if a business, home owner, other, do or say something that some don't agree with, the offended can show their disdain by causing damage to the property or person(s).

Pray it doesn't begin!!


I know it's really hard to comprehend but, the left fQuoteeels that they have the RIGHT if you disagree with them to destroy your property and even kill you.

 

Maybe you should watch the VICE video's where the Alt-Right is saying they're going to kill people until they get what they want.  Right up your ally.

 

See if thesee folks make you feel proud to be a white American male......

 

Vice in Charlottesville

 


After watching this, try and convince yourself the Alt-Right was there to protest the moving of a statue.

Still trying to understand why N.C. state law prevents cities from removing Confederate statues legally.

Who cares she did the correct thing by all real Americans. have you seen the comments by the KKK, and Neo Nazis today. They really think Trump is great, and for now is their leader. What is sad to see is when a vet of the Armed Forces has joined them. Today we saw the Marines denounce a former member who is retired and became a member and gave an interview on TV. They said he does not live up to their standards or the standards of any of the Armed Services. As a vet I agree with what they said. Sad to see we have some who do not and support the KKK and its likes.

Well good for them. Now,will N.C. be voiding the law making it illegal for cities to remove statues of Confederate players or will the citizens have to keep doing things like this in order to make their voices heard?

Trump believes in preserving history, and he is right.  The protectors of the statues had no motives of violence.  They were marched thru the Antifa who were hell bent on using balloons filled with urine and feces and thrown at the ppl who were peacefully protesting the removal of the statues.  Trump predictions are accurate when he said where will it all end?  The neo-Nazis (the original fighters of Nazis and Communism were WWII soldiers).  So  now are we to begin that fight all over again?  The statues at our nation's capital will be next on the list to be vandalized and torn down.  I'm sick  of those who gather at rallys like this to show their hatred of America by violent demonstrations.  The 1st Amendment guarantees freedom of speech but ends with assault and hatred of ppl with other views.   Then McAuliffe and the PD will have to answer under oath why the police stood down, and didn't do their job of protecting ppl when the protestors became violent.  Was that act politically motivated?  From all the stupid remarks on CNN and Fox News and the panelists they chose, who seemed to take some of these issues personally, one would think we are fighting Civil Rights and segregation, going backwards in time.   The statues were there for 100 years and no one got offended until someone thought they should.  Why did one act of aggression/massacre by Dylan Roof be responsible for removal of the statues and our history?  We don't have slavery anymore, and yes it was a dark period in history where 600,000 men fought honorably, and we still have ancestors whose relatives were a part of the CW.  These men were declared veterans in 1959.  What will these hate groups do now, dig up Confederate graves?   We don't hear of Gen. Butler and Gen. Sherman's statues being removed, and I'm sure they were memorialized as well in their respective states.   It's time Trump declares an Executive Order preventing any more removal of statues.  It may not resolve the issue of racism, but no more inflammatory groups spewing hate will have no place in America.  They should be held accountable and jailed for what they did this past weekend.

This reflects the  argument that others have a right to their opinions, but if yours conflict with theirs, then yours is subordinate.  Note the discussions here.
