Now the shoe is on the other foot.
I've heard the Muslim one, never heard the black leader one. I really doubt that Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton or whatever would ever denounce BLM, if anything they're a part of it.

Didn't Trump call out the violence and the hate? What more do you people want from him? What does he have to say that will satisfy the needs of lefties? Does he need to burn a Nazi flag and **** on a Pepe meme? Gimme a break. Even if he did, people would say it's too little too late.

they wont either , they support them. Most black leaders do

This is exactly why I have given up on most conservatives as cowards

Funny you mention those two, because those names always come up as the unofficial leaders of the monolithic black community, who should denounce black crime/BLM.

...which is exactly what people like you said about BLM, based off them making chants about police over 3 years ago.

But that wasn't the point, you missed it, how shocking.

We can denounce opinions that we don't agree with, but we can't stamp extremism out. There will always be extremists and extreme views. It's part of living in a free country. The best we can do is use our freedom of speech to counter extremism and educate people on why we believe the things we believe in. Being part of a free nation carries great responsibility, and requires tolerance from all citizens.

I don't like Nazis, but there are some modern day neo Nazis living in America. I can accept and tolerate that, even while spitting on everything they stand for. My grandfather fought real Nazis during WW2, and I have nothing but respect and admiration for his contribution. Modern day Nazis disgust me, especially since they know more about what was going on compared to the average German citizen during the war. I don't compare BLM to Nazis. They aren't even in the same league. In fact, they are worlds apart. But I don't like all of the things they have said and done. None the less, I tolerate their presence and celebrate their freedom of speech, which allows them a platform to share their message and vent their frustration.

And with that I am telling you that what Trump said is one of the Few Times in my Opinion that he truly acted like the President of The United States of America. Knock him all you wish for what he does wrong, but when he gets it right learn to put your dislike aside, otherwise you are no different than what you say you are against.
As for the Repub Politicians, no one in their right mind thinks they in any way condone violence and hate by either side, especially not this case. Good Grief Folks...................

like most pot bangers, Mark still hasn't learned the difference between being an activist and being a douchebag.
