Trump’s Remarks on Charlottesville Violence Are Criticized as Insufficient

BRIDGEWATER, N.J. — President Trump is rarely reluctant to express his opinion, but he is often seized by caution when addressing the violence and vitriol of white nationalists, neo-Nazis and alt-right activists, some of whom are his supporters.

After days of genially bombastic interactions with the news media on North Korea and the shortcomings of congressional Republicans, Mr. Trump on Saturday condemned the bloody protests in Charlottesville, Va., in what critics in both parties saw as muted, equivocal terms.

During a brief and uncomfortable address to reporters at his golf resort in Bedminster, N.J., he called for an end to the violence. But he was the only national political figure to spread blame for the “hatred, bigotry and violence” that resulted in the death of one person to “many sides.”

For the most part, Republican leaders and other allies have kept quiet over several months about Mr. Trump’s outbursts and angry Twitter posts. But recently they have stopped averting their gazes and on Saturday a handful criticized his reaction to Charlottesville as insufficient.

“Mr. President — we must call evil by its name,” tweeted Senator Cory Gardner, Republican from Colorado, who oversees the National Republican Senatorial Committee, the campaign arm of the Senate Republicans.

“These were white supremacists and this was domestic terrorism,” he added, a description several of his colleagues used.

That is because he has been inciting hatred and must take responsibility for what happened there. He gave those asshole license to kill with his hate speech during the campaign and since being in office. But don't expect him to take responsibility. Psychopaths never do.



After the revolting display of racism and violence today in Virginia, Trump refused to take sides against the Nazi protestors. When 6 million Jews were murdered by Nazis, it wasn't because of hate on "both sides". You are hideous, 45. The world eagerly awaits your impeachment.

Pick a topic any topic and trump is all bluster void of substance, hopefully cooler heads will prevail on matters from north korea to virginia
Anyhow those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it and trying to ignore history by tearing down a statue representative of a dark time only serves loopy apologists. Poland constantly reminds the world the death camps on their turf were not polish death camps rather nazi death camps. Even so poland did not tear them down they see Auschwitz as a vivid reminder of mans inhumanity to man and preserve the site as a real time reminder. The statue should be preserved for the same reason imo.

Racism has been wiped out a long time ago, since multiculturalism was invented millions of years ago. This is obviously a simple misunderstanding.

Right now there is only you're bigotry towards me

Not really. Im spending way to much time making multiculturalism work by raising my French Native American Italian Irish children to have any time to waste on things that no longer exist.

And is in our past.

But i bet you are wasting your time thinking you should protest their march

The KKK has been irrelevant for to long for me to even bother thinking about them

I'm pretty sure that Trump could have shown up at the Charlottesville jail with the AG,
slapped the driver upside the head, and you would say is wasn't enough.
And virtue signaling turncoat Republicans will see themselves off at the next election.

If you're stupid enough to go protest a black life matter march then mybe you are intentionally putting yourself at needless risk. Things are equally true about a black persons protesting a KKK rally. Sometimes you got to tell yourself. I knew exactly what I was getting myself into.

But lets give this thing way more press then it obviously deserves shall we.

Wow, the trump haters are out in force putting their idea of what is hate down, while supporting their own "justifiable with nothing" hate as right

Such a sad bunch really...worse then letting illegals vote.

....and cliffy, soros the funder of much anti trump hate was a hitler helper, aiding the nazis sticking jews on the train, so you while you are helping HIM, you know where you can stick those flags dooood.
Really.

...and there is mental floss, using terror events to push his hate agenda, while putting someone down for not doing what he says is enough.
That's some sick Hypocricy you got there..

That's actually sick.

Maybe, the first "shots" of the Second American Civil War have just been "fired" with the Tea Bagger, Alt-Right conspiracy theorizing Neo-Nazi Trump supporters against the more peaceful part of America.

I wonder who is going to win?

U.S. District Court Judge William H. Walls did not rule on arguments made by Menendez attorneys that the U.S. Supreme Courtís reversal of a corruption conviction for former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell meant Menendezís indictment should be thrown out. Walls said that canít be determined until the case goes to trial.

Violence begats violence. This is the game the left decided to play after Trump won the election and during the last leg of the election run. It can be a real bytch when your chickens come home to roost.
Although to be fair, what the f*ck did anyone think was going to happen when a group of "America loving" anarchists decided to confront a group of "loy'l, patriotic" right-wing extremists?

I don't think those white nationalists were fighting with 'the more peaceful part of America'. They were fighting fanatics from the far left. No sympathy for either side here. But the racists had a right to hold their parade and demo and the commies did not have the right to stop them. So in that sense, the violence can be blamed on the far left.

The far left is intellectually compromised emotionally, they can look past facts and logic & justify their violence because they are emotionally sensitive on this subject.

Why would they claim responsibility on their own actions when their emotional response is justified by their Hate.

You see a lot of "far left fanatics" about or do you read a lot of tripe about them from neo-Nazis and their "news" sites?

Show me some "far left fanatics" roaming our streets.

Far left is far beyond anything that exists in the United States. Their "far leftist" is a center-right European.

That's a easy one. Black lives matter.
Look at the stunts they resently pulled in Toronto gay parade.

Black lives matter. Marches many times in a year in many different cities. Sometimes with deadly consequences.

University campus are full of left radical groups. Using force to shut down events they don't agree too.

They hold campus administrators hostage over issues their opinions don't support.
