Donald Trump's Wretched Statement on Charlottesville
A motley crew of racists (Neo-Nazis, KKK members, white supremacists and skinheads) numbering in the thousands descended on the sleepy college town of Charlottesville, Virginia and wreaked havoc.
The racist invaders came prepared for battle, they had helmets and shields and were swinging sticks and clubs and hurling rocks and bottles.
A small contingent of professional leftist counter-protesters eagerly joined the battle, matching the racists blow for blow. But the majority of counter-protesters were peacefully bearing witness against the invading army of bigots.
One person was killed and many others were injured when a vehicle deliberately sped into a group of counter-protesters.
At such a crucial juncture in history we look to our president to put things in perspective and on behalf of the public condemn racism and intolerance in no uncertain terms.
This is what the President of the United States said about the mayhem going in Charlottesville, the same person who never missed an opportunity to condemn former President Barack Obama for failing to name the evil of Islamic terrorism by its name:
"We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence, on many sides. On many sides. It`s been going on for a long time in our country. Not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama. This has been going on for a long, long time."
Trump didn`t condemn the sickening outrage in the strongest possible terms, his generic comments didn`t call evil by its name: White supremacist violence, and intolerance.
Our execrable president has a history of making racist comments and playing footsie with unabashed racists, and once again he has failed our democracy miserably.
Let me state in no uncertain terms, Donald Trump is a racist, and we must expunge this cancer by any means necessary.
