"...I don't think he did it maliciously. He got spooked because the counter-protesters were getting rowdy.."

Let's call things by their real name, shall we?

"Ethnic nationalists" my foot. The term almost makes it sound presentable.
There is a difference between supremacist and nationalist. According to Spencer they don't want to rule over other races. They want their own homeland and are more separatist than anything. White nationalist is a better term, but ethnic nationalist is the more media friendly term.

It's not about making them presentable. I really hate the knee jerk sensitivity many people on the left have about rationally explaining this new phenomena of nationalism. You can hate it, as do I, without being so emotional about it. Just because it's acceptable to clown on them it doesn't mean you always have to to win your virtue signaling badge.

I think they're repulsive and spread pseudo-science. But I don't believe in this "punch a Nazi" style extremism the left has adopted.

The KKK was before Trump too. So what? This is happening again under Trump's watch.

Crooked Trump doesn't want to offend the white supremicists that voted for him.

But I DO have a big problem with any number of domestic and (God Forbid!) international collections of do-gooders who think that every "issue" can be addressed by a public-sector entity which has no goal other than a bigger budget and staff. And the "global warming" uproar, directed at its teenybopper clientele, is a prime example.

We cannot afford to have the "seed corn" eaten by the Great Unwashed and the Great Unthinking.
Not exactly what I meant.....I don't want a bloated military...want the money spent on massive infrastructure reform. Employ more people and get wages higher. I would keep the science budget fat.I'm also against giveaways. I do want the opportunity to earn it..to be readily available.

The problem here, is Unite the Right is being completely disingenuous when they call themselves a peaceful gathering. That's like a kid rolling their eyes at you and saying "what, I didn't say anything!"

Peaceful gatherings are weddings, barbecues, music festivals, etc.

This was anything but a peaceful gathering. This event was meant to invoke terror and horrific memories in the hearts of Black people in the town. TORCHES?? REALLY??

They came with no intention of peaceful gathering.

They want to be able to clearly communicate hostility and terror and then say "what? we didn't harm anyone. All we did was stand here peacefully and they started it!" Yeah. That didn't even work in kindergarten, lads.

Any sane person would be against what those KKK guys were even protesting for. If you feel sorry for any one of those asshats you belong down there with them getting the crap kicked out of you.

But seriously, cognitive-dissonance is everywhere. The real problem is, we don't like each other, and we don't agree with each other. I would go so far as to say that we hate each other.

We are together only because we were never given a choice.

Today's episode of domestic terrorism was not done by both sides. Trump's choice to pander to white supremacists rather than call out this act of terrorism is an abomination.
