I think you mean well, it’s just that using the atrocity committed at Charlottesville as a propaganda tool to fire up the hatred of Trump is a really tacky thing to do, and completely dishonest.

Antifa were at Charlottesville with the express purpose of violently disrupting the march of the KKK and Neo Nazi Groups who themselves had infiltrated a more reasonable protest against the destruction of Confederate-era monuments, and specifically to protest the removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. Both groups are equally to blame for inflaming the situation to the point where a violent young man used his car to attack the Antifa terrorist he feared. As a result Heather Heyer, who as far as I know belonged to neither of the hate groups, was murdered.

Don’t try to blame this on Donald Trump: his daughter, Son-in-Law and grandchildren are Jewish. When you try to tell me he would agree with the people chanting “Jews will not replace us,” it is a disgusting falsehood.

When he said “that hatred, bigotry and violence” in Charlottesville came from “many sides” he is absolutely correct and this was an allusion to the Antifa presence.

I’m with the voice calling for unity and peace, not with your and Antifa’s calls for hatred and violence.

“We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for. There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come together as one!”

“ Condolences to the family of the young woman killed today, and best regards to all of those injured, in Charlottesville, Virginia. So sad!”

“ Deepest condolences to the families & fellow officers of the VA State Police who died today. You’re all among the best this nation produces.”

“ We will continue to follow developments in Charlottesville, and will provide whatever assistance is needed. We are ready, willing and able.”

“What is vital now is a swift restoration of law and order and the protection of innocent lives. No citizen should ever fear for their safety and security in our society.”

“ We must remember this truth: No matter our color, creed, religion or political party, we are ALL AMERICANS FIRST.”

What is there not to agree with here?

Would a racist say this: “Racism is evil and those who cause violence in its name are criminals.”

The best thing to do with White Rights activists, call them White Supremacists if you want, is to ignore them, they are few and powerless until the terrorists of Antifa attack them, validating what they say! The Haters of the Left act as recruiters for the extreme Racist Hater groups. Between them they invoked “Fight or Flight” reactions in their opponents. One young lunatic snapped and committed an act of terror himself. He will pay for it in court, in gaol, and perhaps with his life. The fact remains that this atrocity would not have occurred if Antifa had stayed away. It isn’t Trump who is to blame for this: it is the Left: it is YOU.

The answer to hate isn’t more Hate. Shame on you.
