To fight racism, the Left should first look to their own

Over the last few weeks, the left has been a very happy bunch. With the ‘Unite the Right’ rally on August 12th in Charlottesville, they finally, finally, got that first little shred of concrete evidence (outside the online bubble of 4chan and The Daily Stormer) that some Trump supporters are white supremacists. No, not the ordinary, working class Middle-Americans who were caught in the slip-stream of the collective, months-long tantrum thrown by so-called ‘progressives’ when their preferred candidate lost the election. I mean an actual faction of self-admitted white nationalists, protesting (with a permit) the removal of a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee.

Can you imagine the elation of the left when, after hearing of the death of 32-year-old Heather Heyer, they realised they had actual people to direct their cries of “Nazi!” “White supremacist!” and “Fascist!” at?
