Charlottesville again

Written October 8, 2017 in Facebook

There was another march in Charlottesville by White Nationalists last night. Here are two observations:

1) There was no Antifa or other organized militant counter demonstrators. As a result, the only thing there is to talk about is how idiotic, disgusting and awful the White Nationalists were, in my opinion. This is a good thing. The White Nationalists want nothing more than some unhinged counter protesters to be there and look bad. That is the only way they can look good.

2) Instead of mentioning how awful the White Nationalists were, the so-called President tweeted the following after sending VP Mike Pence to a NFL football game, who promptly left after some payers knelt during the National Anthem, the next day: "I asked @VP Pence to leave stadium if any players kneeled, disrespecting our country. I am proud of him and @SecondLady Karen."

Yes, the so-called President ignores the White Nationalist march but calls out the football players for putting the spotlight on unequal treatment of minorities by law enforcement. We understand, but unfortunately, so does his base.
