Post Charlottesville: Race and Terror

Charlottesville: Race and Terror – VICE News Tonight on HBO

For all those that want to pretend Charlottesville wasn't about white nationalists / alt-righters / neo-nazis, I encourage them to watch this video.
LISTEN to the message stated by the people in this video.

I recognize a LOT of the claims repeated by people on this forum who want to pretend it's not about racism and bigotry.
The people on this forum just leave out the racial slurs and the anti-semitic comments when they repeat the same crap.

Makes you wonder if some of the right-wingers on this forum don't realize whose words they are repeating. Who else is repeating those same claims with them in unison.
Or if it even bothers them that they're in bed with such racism / bigotry...

On Saturday hundreds of white nationalists, alt-righters, and neo-Nazis traveled to Charlottesville, Virginia, to participate in the “Unite the Right” rally. By Saturday evening three people were dead – one protester and two police officers – and many more injured.

“VICE News Tonight” correspondent Elle Reeve went behind the scenes with white nationalist leaders, including Christopher Cantwell, Robert Ray, David Duke, and Matthew Heimbach — as well as counterprotesters. VICE News Tonight also spoke with residents of Charlottesville, members of the Black Lives Matter movement, and the Charlottesville Police.

From the neo-Nazi protests at Emancipation Park to Cantwell’s hideaway outside Virginia, “VICE News Tonight” provides viewers with exclusive, up-close and personal access inside the unrest.

They know what it was about.

They're just trolling to get arguments started.

I don't think they're the brightest bulbs in the chandeliers, but they're not so stupid they don't know what Nazis, KKK members, the alt-right and white supremacists stand for.

They're just being assholes.

I watched it. An excellent video. Those who deny what the Nazis did this weekend won't be swayed by the facts.

It was about Robert E. Lee and pride in the Confederacy, which is why Nazi's and the KKK were there.
Because Nazis and the KKK are big fans of the confederacy, because they know what the confederacy stood for.

According to armed-to-the-teeth Chris Cantwell, Heather Heyer's death was justified, and as for those who were injured, they should have gotten out of the way. Don't take my word. Watch it:

As usual, VICE News allows the major players speak and tell the story in their own words.

Everyone should watch this.

A call for unity

DJT makes a call for unity in Phoenix.
"We all share the same home, the same dreams and the same hopes for a better future,” he said. “A wound inflicted on one member of our community is a wound inflicted upon us all. When one part of America hurts, we all hurt. And one American suffers and injustice, all of America suffers together. We're all together."
And then wounded DJT went on:
Trump derided The New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN — the crowd chanted "CNN sucks!" — and "little George Stephanopoulos" of ABC. The crowd roared along with each attack, as Trump was repeatedly interrupted by protesters, one of whom he berated for not having a "powerful voice."

It is the fault of the media, Trump declared, for "fomenting divisions" in the United States.

"They are trying to take away our history and our heritage, you see that," Trump said, an apparent reference to removing monuments to Confederate generals.

"These are really, really dishonest people and they're bad people and I really think they don't like our country," Trump said of the press. "The only people giving a platform to these hate groups is the media itself and the fake news."

"These are sick people,” he continued. “You know the thing I don't understand? You would think they'd want to make our country great again and I honestly believe they don't."
And then....
Trump did praise Fox News, and specifically conservative host Sean Hannity and the morning show “Fox and Friends,” which he said treated him fairly.

Republican governor of Arizona, Doug Ducey, skipped the Phoenix rally.

The Grand Orange Wizard spent a half hour attacking the media last night because his feelings were hurt. That is a half hour longer than he spent attacking white supremacists since Charlottesville to steady a nation. Truly telling.

President Trump is trying to sabotage the media last night, but he praised Fox News. That is slander.
