The counter protesters did not interfere.

==============================================

That is not true and I think you know that.

You just nailed the problem with what many believe what happened.

ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

I gave sources for my assertions, specifically from the Chief of Police.

When you stated..as fact "The counter protesters did not interfere" you showed you did not read up on what happened....I did!

In this thread, one of our Trump Lovers doesn't understand where the widespread criticism of his hero is coming from:

  • The U.S. Military
  • CEOs of Major Corporations
  • Several Republicans
  • The Press
  • The former head of the CIA
  • etc.

Face it, there are people who will defend Trump no matter what he does.


Maybe it's not Trump they defend, but the white supremacists...

Some have far more credibility than others.

Don't they have the right to their opinion the same as we do?  But we are supposed to go along with theirs because of their status?   What happened to the pioneer thought of independence that made America great?

, President Trump's offensive reaction to the gut-wrenching incident in Charlottesville, VA marked a breaking point from any association with this administration

=============================================

Trump, in that case told the truth. I understand that the hate for Trump has left some with the inability to accept the truth.

From CNBC:

 

In times of crisis, we seek moral leadership from the presidency. We can recall President Clinton calling for justice not vengeance after Oklahoma City, or President Bush visiting a mosque in the wake of 9/11. We remember President Obama's speech on the power of grace after Charleston.

 

For some business leaders, President Trump's offensive reaction to the gut-wrenching incident in Charlottesville, VA marked a breaking point from any association with this administration. They joined Trump's advisory councils to make their voice heard on policy and regulation, assuming he would be a rational actor.

 

But normalcy never arrived, legislation was never produced, and the council meetings became nothing but a photo op used to bolster the perception of the president's legitimacy.

Although it's very sad, you have to LOL at the way our resident Trump loyalists called those who bravely stood up to the White Supremacists and Nazis as Liberals. Are you kidding? Standing up to Nazis isn't my definition of being a liberal.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

I do not know of anyone that stood for White Supremacists and Nazis...let alone called they Liberals. Do you? If so please post that information you posted as fact.

Thanks

Please offer your alternative word for "Liberal" to describe the anti-fascists and ordinary citizens who totally oppose Nazi's, the KKK and White Supremicists who came to Charlottesville thinking they could intimidate their opposition into silence by having more and better arms than the local police.

 

I suggest AMERICAN PATRIOT, because that's who will ALWAYS oppose Nazis KKK and White Supremicists.


I suggest "Conservative" since 99.5% are straight arrows that don't commit crimes, don't commit murder, don't riot, and in general obey the laws!
