Trump’s critics reveling in the opportunity to tie him to white racists and Nazis

My colleague Rick Moran is highly critical of President Trump for equally condemning those who came to Charlottesville, VA seeking violence on behalf of their version of justice in racial issues:

 While the president condemned the violence and hate, he softened his criticism by blaming “all sides” for the violence. This may have been technically accurate. But by not specifically condemning white supremacists and most importantly, their rancid ideology, the president played into the hands of his critics who are now condemning his statement as “insufficient.”

Those critics were going to slam the president no matter what he said or did.

    NeverTrump @ssholes; same as the radical Left.

    Trump and his supporters need to hold Obama and his administration accountable for promoting, encouraging and supporting fascists and black racists. Hammer that home over and over. Put the bastards on the defensive: turn the tables on them. Stop allowing them to set the rules.

    I wonder how many blacks have been murdered by blacks in Chicago so far this year? Strange, one person gets killed in Virginia and the media goes apeshit, but hundreds are murdered in Chicago and the media ignores it. Funny old world isn’t it.

      At least three this weekend, as of Sunday AM.

    All violent extremists are equal, but some are more equal than the others.

    The Left and their media shills are just enraged because Trump’s condemnation of all sides means he was condeming their shock troops, Antifa.

    • Yep, and the White Nationalists are mad too. In fact in a Fox report yesterday apparently David Duke has denounced Trump because he hasn’t come out in support of white nationalists who voted for him. Duke et al will probably go back to voting for the Dems — their traditional Party of choice. Good riddance.

      Antifa and the white nationalists finally share something in common: they both hate Trump.

      • bargogx1

        Which means Trump must be doing something right.

        The other thing they share in common is collectivism. And although Trump has not come right out and explicitly stated his anti-collectivism, he’s much less collectivist than most, therefore collectivists of all stripes are bound to hate him.

    If Trump were to say “good morning” everyone would jump on
    the comment as …

    • bargogx1

      Racist! Because it’s racist to expect persons of colour to have a good morning while struggling under the yoke of white male oppression!

    • Blacksmith

      Transphobic, cause the trans did not get a chance to take their morning after pill yet so is stressed and it is definitely not a good morning?

    Once the police finished abusing those with valid permits protesting the removal of the Gen Lee statue, they evaporated as noted by Faith Goldy. The fascist antifa then went on a spur of the moment march of their own which the police totally ignored until the hit and run perp did his thing.

    Guess they had gotten their authorized overtime in and then lost interest.

  • Blacksmith

    A couple points, Rick Moran’s last name is spelled wrong, and he definitely didn’t want his people the antifa goons and BLM to get any of the blame, it doesn’t fit his narrative.

  • Blind Druid

    I say yet again — Trump is playing Chess while the MSM are playing Checkers.

    Watch him go.

  • DMB

    Trump has never once met with any white supremacists in the White House unlike Barack Obama who has met with the racists and cop killing Black Lives Matter in the White House.

  • Tanya

    Unfortunately Trump will always be dammed either way.
    His haters are just too obsessed with his popularity and his direction and really do not want America to be great again. The hypocrisy of the Democrats and even some in the Republican party boggles the mind.
