The joint chiefs issued their condemnation of racism and bigotry today. For a group of military leaders who remain apolitical as best they can, these statements from them truly underscore the vacuum in moral leadership, or leadership period, that is happening at the highest level of the executive office. Never equivocate when it comes to condemning white supremacists.

And the same should go for the black hate groups also. Why do some people only want to condemn only white racists? There are racists on both sides. Condemn all racists.

The anti-racists apparently are the racists. If you condemn one side and not all, then you're an active racist.

Everyone is just encouraging these guys by giving them all of this attention. Aren't they trying to cause controversy and rile people up? They've accomplished their mission beyond their wildest dreams. And I'm sure you'll be seeing more from them.

Thankfully, there are still stand up leaders in Washington who openly place moral responsibility and country ahead of their own interests. What an encouraging stance over the cowardness spewing from the Trump WH.

Why they had permits, they did not attack, they did not pick off individuals. They did not chant anti-Semitic slogans. They did not swing tiki torches as people stood around a statue


The big one of course is they did not kill anybody.

I'd be far more impressed if they condemned all of these wars and American occupations worldwide.

Nevermind Trump.
