Why are you surprised? The moral abomination.

Why are you surprised? White supremacists are my base.  Haven’t you been listening to me?

 

O.K., if I have to . . . . do I really have to?  Really? (Sigh) All right:

Amid pressure, Trump says racism is ‘evil’ and condemns KKK and neo-Nazis as ‘thugs’

Under pressure all weekend, President Donald Trump on Monday named and condemned hate groups as “repugnant” and declared “racism is evil” in an updated, more forceful statement on the deadly, race-fueled clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Trump had been under increasing pressure to call out the groups by name after his previous remarks bemoaning violence on “many sides” prompted criticism from fellow Republicans as well as Democrats.

The president described members of the KKK, neo-Nazis and white supremacists who take part in violence as “criminals and thugs” in a prepared statement from the White House.

O.K., I said it. Are you satisfied?

(Pssst: To my base, I still love you, and I still hate people who aren’t white and all immigrants unless they are rich. I just wanted to be sure you to know I was forced to be politically correct. Actually, I didn’t really say it. They wrote it for me to read. Not how I feel.)

  1. Tony Schwartz has been dead on about Chump being a racist scumbag and it’s only now more people are listening to him. Shameful. I’ve been calling out the cult members who I’ve called Chumptards for many months now and I had been proven correct too about them.

    Charlottesville in context
    How Germany responds to “blood and soil” politics

    What zero tolerance of neo-Nazi ideology looks like

    America in 2017 is not Germany in 1933. But the chants about “blood and soil”, the flaming torches, the Nazi salutes, the thuggery and violence turned on objectors—the whole furious display of armed ethno-nationalism—are nonetheless chillingly evocative.

    Similarly so is the strenuous ambivalence about it all from Donald Trump and some of his media cheerleaders.

    Germany, of course, carries a unique historical burden. But every country has dark periods in its national past and far-right revisionists in its political present.

    The Charlottesville protests, marching under Confederate flags against plans to remove Confederate statues, are a distinctively American reminder of that (indeed, the Nazis were inspired by Jim Crow laws and studied segregation as a possible model for German society).

    Countries without Holocausts on their history books can also learn from Germany’s grown-up, vigilant and dutiful culture of remembrance. In America that may mean removing Confederate symbols from public spaces; Jim Grey, the mayor of Lexington, has announced plans to accelerate this in his city.

    It means unambiguously declaring the Charlottesville protesters beyond the pale (while defending their right to protest peacefully). And it means calling out Mr Trump’s equivocal statements for what they are: a moral abomination.
