The woman lost her child. We don't have to agree with what Heather Heyers was protesting, or her motivations. I think that most of us will agree that it shouldn't have led to her death. Her mother is certainly entitled to her opinions and feelings, no matter how much some may feel they are misplaced.
I don't blame Trump for the random lunatics any more than I blamed Obama for the lunatics that attacked and killed our service men at the recruiting center.
Haters are going to hate. Losers need someone to blame for why they are losers. Using a car to attack a crowd of people? Yeah he was a coward.
From what I read people on both sides showed up to get in a fight. Not all, but some.
Most Americans disagree with the extremists on both sides. I won't even attend a protest of any kind. The country has gone insane.

No apologies made for anyone. This thread is about the mother of the woman who died and her behavior subsequent to the death of her daughter.

When we talk on this forum about conservatives biased in favor of white supremacists, we're talking about you.
He had bad parents also. (There. That's a statement. Happy?) You should start a separate thread about them. I've made no statements supporting the protesters. My statements so far have been about the woman discussed. She's a bad mom.

It's like they keep forgetting that.

You hit the nail on the head with that one.

The Nazi /White supremacist followers have always been know to be violent , so if I was a parent and my daughter wanted to go square off with them I'd do everything I could to talk her out of it.


The left just has absolutely zero logical thinking, you want to corner a bear and poke it with sticks but when it lashes out at you run away crying about how bad the evil bear was. When one looks for a fight , they just might end up finding it.


I'm sorry, I was raised to not go looking for trouble and to pretty much fight only when I have no other option.
Except she wasn't looking for a fight, now was she? She was just walking down the sidewalk when some Nazi skinhead, who you defend, mowed her down.

IF that is how the 'bear' is going to act - then we ALL need to quash that BS movement like a bug.

Another person blaming the victim instead of the Nazi skinhead.

Revolting.

I've never been there and am not really interested. You seem familiar with it so perhaps you can provide direction for those curious. I'm sure it's right there in your favorites list.

Nobody should have been there then since it was so dangerous.

The bear came to town and this isn't the first time.

Apparently, they got tired of the Klan and their Nazi buddies marching through their town, threatening everyone, like a gang of Old West outlaws.
I believe you mean Charlottesville, not Charleston.

You are absolutely correct. the asshats should have been completely surrounded by law enforcement. have your little rally but you will be corraled.

as far as being on the sidewalk , i wasn't there to see her or the incident. although looking thru pictures you can clearly see the group that was getting mowed down by the car was in the street. and the were swinging bats or clubs, so those were either the inbreds own people or some other group of armed protesters. why would anyone in their right mind put themselves in that position. i've been in a riot, we were just in the wrong place at the wrong time, and once the tear gas came out we bolted and didn't look back.

You need to stop saying that, you have already ran that into the ground. You are in no position to say she is a bad mom when you don't know anything about this woman, you don't know her life story or have walked in her shoes, so you can't make that judgement on her. I guess had she talked to the president, she would not be so bad in your eyes. And if she is a bad parent, then everybody at that rally on both side must have had bad parents as well. Calling her a bad mom in this situation doesn't even make any sense, her daughter was grown and made her own decision.
