Although he was sympathetic towards gays he always came down on the side of scripture. Since the liberals are all of a sudden so outraged over historical monuments maybe they'll topple MLK's too?

Oh look, another false equivalency. Did MLK declare his own country and fight a war against the United States to prevent gays from being free?

That's where all these irrational idiots are leading us to.

It's not a false equivalency. Totalitarian fascism leads to this exact herd mentality.


Did you hear that Pelosi is trying stop a prayer rally because it's by white supremacists? Problem is the speakers are Hispanic, Black and even transgender. So please, explain that one.

Quite trying to reframe the argument to justify the actions of Nazis.

The statues were voted to be removed legally by the local governments. If the violent right-wing Nazi bigots didn't like that, they should have voted other people into office that would have kept the statues.

But, no - instead they show up looking for a fight with their bigotry on full display and then decide to murder somebody. Trump - the Coward in Chief - fails to condemn them without a spineless spit in the face to the other side, and we're stuck listening to Nazi apologists on right-wing websites stand by their monstrous brethren while pretending to "not really be like them."

Trumpites are grasping at straws. The desperation is obvious in posts such as the above.

They are trying to minimize the recent Trump comments and the actions of the KKK/white nationalists, but it's not working. Everyone is enraged that Trump is a racist and supports the KKK and a neo-Nazi murderer.

There won't be much left standing in the U.S. if this rampage continues unchecked. Maybe time for a nation of laws? Mob rule usually results in fascism, communism or a dictatorship of some sort. The DNC assumes it will be in control.

The funny thing is, the more the Ctrl-left acts like uncivilized criminals, the more they empower the opposition. Look at history. Communism attempting to rise in a modern culture always fell to the opposition they created.

Another "will they tear down his/her/their statue too" thread.

I love how you are trying to connect the dots with the starting point being the events of this past weekend. One thing won't necessarily lead to another but you are certainly scared s***less that it will.
