Also, absolutely insanity that the police was afraid to escalate because they were afraid of the militias.

That is NOT ok. In the slightest.

I'm starting to think that there will not be a nuclear war, barring a really unfortunate error.

Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump are in some weird symbiotic relationship where they need each other to justify their existence and hold on power (although obviously this applies more to Kim).

Texas A&M cancelled the White Lives Matter event out of fear of violence like seen in Charlottesville... which begs the question... Texas A&M only had an issue with an event titled White Lives Matter after this weekend???

You're labeled anti-free speech, but now conservatives have a reason to deny their president's base.

That name MVR sounds vaguely familiar will YT. omg, laughed about the image of a black cop having to protect some WS, or Nazi scum. Talk about willpower !!!
Ohyes, and we have the freedom to reacts to your WS, Nazi ideas on display!

Amen. Unfortunately the Nazis got "inspiration" from those in the USA's eugenics movement in the ? 1920's.

I'm not sure everybody in AG, TP were totally like that. NO doubt there was/ is a lot of overlap. Alt-right for me usually represented the most overall racist, with The Nazis in their own category.

But yes, they were stealthy, then with drumph being SO overt, so ongoing with both dog whistle, and out right verbiage at times to give permission to these people.

It' s been Afro-American & Jewish organizations for the most part that have been crying "hey, over here!!! for a long time. Also props tto the Southern Poverty Law Center for monitoring these groups for ?30-40 yes.

WideAwake is correct, this has been simmering for a long time because these fuckers haven't had a leader to get behind. Ronnie, Bush I, Clinton, W, and Obama....


Looking at the pictures, and all the militia men that were there with their rifles, I have no idea how more people weren't killed. I fear that it's only a matter of time though
Fucking Reagan gave his first post-nomination speech in Philadelphia, Miss. Talking about " states rights". That is the town where the 3 voting rights activists were slaughtered by WS.

I think (I m h o) a better analogy would be like 3 black men open carrying rifles in any majority white neighborhood. 'course I get what u are saying .

Yeah it was obvious to me that once Trump slammed the Merck CEO that there would be other CEOs coming to support him. It's a sort of brotherhood and they're all flipping Trump the bird.

Yep. Blood on your hands, deep. Blood on everybody's hands who voted for this lunatic who has enabled white supremacists.

That's good! (re the ceos backing away from drumph)

Back to Charlottesville -- in a post that either was put on fb, or was asked to be added to facebook-
a resident said that some of the counter protestors (near where the car ran them down) had just returned from stopping some of the SWs & Nazis from trying invade an area of African-American housing!!! And there were (attempted?) drive by shooting from a car labeled KKK.


Thank goodness, they repelled them from the housing area!

And other than the photos of the people flying in the air from being hit by the car- the most terrifying photo was the one at night with the WSs and Nazis (semi overhead pic) marching in a winding path with their torches!
I was a bit too young to see the early 60's news before President Kennedy was assassinated (I was 10 by then) ; but within a year or two from that I began to see photos of the KKK, cross burnings at night etc. So that photo almost took me back to then really beginning to see the visual evidence of extreme racism, although I'd already had begun hearing about it.

This weekend's tragedy was sickening, but there's two things that really scare me more. We all knew these groups existed before, they are not new, they were not created by Trump.

But they have said out loud, we now for the first time have an ally in the White House.

And secondly watching Trumpicans who claim these people don't represent them, normalize them and blame everything else besides them and themselves for this happening.

I can surmise you're not too upset about the recent happenings, then? I hope you're happy.

And wtf does this have to do with Macron and ratings?

Perhaps deep is trying to say that Macron could improve his rating by embracing white supremacists?

Aren't you a Republican/conservative who couldn't vote for Trump because he was just so terrible? I bet you're regretting your decision now.
