What happened in Charlottesville yesterday is horrific - outrageous rhetoric, violence, hate, death.

Look at these nutjobs:

The white nationalists called their gathering "Unite the Right."

No way. I will not be associated with them. They aren't on the fringe of the conservative movement. They aren't part of it at all.

It's disturbing that Leftists are exploiting the terrible actions of these bad people to degrade Americans with conservative views.

In it's coverage of the Charlottesville story, the New York Times notes that these bad people were emboldened by Donald Trump's election.

Many of these groups have felt emboldened since the election of Donald J. Trump as president. Mr. Duke, a former imperial wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, told reporters on Saturday that the protesters were “going to fulfill the promises of Donald Trump” to “take our country back.”

Saturday afternoon, President Trump, speaking at the start of a veterans’ event at his golf club in Bedminster, N.J., addressed what he described as “the terrible events unfolding in Charlottesville, Virginia.”

In his comments, President Trump condemned the bloody protests, but he did not specifically criticize the white nationalist rally and its neo-Nazi slogans, blaming “hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides.”

“It’s been going on for a long time in our country, it’s not Donald Trump, it’s not Barack Obama,” said Mr. Trump, adding that he had been in contact with Virginia officials. After calling for the “swift restoration of law and order,” he offered a plea for unity among Americans of “all races, creeds and colors.”

The president came under criticism from some who said he had not responded strongly enough against racism and that he failed to condemn the white nationalist groups by name who were behind the rally.

Among those displeased with Mr. Trump was the mayor of Charlottesville, Mike Signer. “I do hope that he looks himself in the mirror and thinks very deeply about who he consorted with during his campaign,” he said.
Other efforts to make this about Trump:


I wish reasonable people would speak up to quiet all this noise from the haters.

Haven't you had enough of this stuff?

Give peace a chance.
