You're missing the truth, on purpose.
There was a group chanting and marching, and a group not chanting and also marching. Was there another grouping on the Conservative side that didn't fall into one of those two camps?

What I believe is that there were White supremacists there and people who were cool with the White supremacists being there. Is Trump calling the people who were cool with the White Supremacists being there, the good ones?

Yes, there were tons of people there who had no affiliation to any group on either side of the protest.

You believe whatever you need to, that doesn't make it true.

Where else but CD could you have a conversation with people, present countless instances of the President openly condemning racial violence, directly condemning the KKK and white supremacists live on TV and tons of transcripts showing that he condemned what took place only to be met with a flood of left wingers claiming that none of that matters and that he's a racist.

I just hope they're getting enough rubles to sow discord.

At least Trump didn't say these things can get messy, if I had sons they would look like me, or nonsense like that. He came out against neo nazis and white supremacists, but did defend the people who were legitimately protesting the removal of the Robert E Lee statue.

Some people do value our history and would like to make sure future generations know and understand our history so we do not have to relive the mistakes of the past.
When was that statue of Lee put up, out of curiosity?

It's also telling that the left wingers are still using that one single example from two years ago. If Trump were such a defender of white supremacists, where is some more recent "evidence"?

Just like sleepy Joe, these people choose choose "truth" over facts and they make up their own truth based on their hate.

Who ever said any of the people whose only purpose for being there was their interest in the statue/park were walking with the Jew hating crowd?

No one has said that, so why do you keep saying that?

That was the night before the official protest.

It's truly mind boggling, albeit the stupidity evidenced by so many Americans is a little frightening.
