We knew we'd heard that slogan before!
We knew we’d heard Trump’s slogan somewhere before

After someone crashed a car into a crowd protesting a neo-Nazi march in Charlottesville, Virginia, killing one and injuring 10, Donald Trump offered a strong condemnation of “this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence on many sides — on many sides.” At no point in the comments did the man who insisted that we can’t fight terrorism without saying “Islam” a lot actually mention white nationalists, neo-Nazis, or the KKK, because you wouldn’t want to start pointing fingers or anything.

There’s just a lot of hatred in the world, and, as Our President said,

It’s been going on for a long time in our country. Not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama, it’s been going on for a long, long time. It has no place in America. 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, and no child should ever be afraid to go outside and play or be with their parents and have a good time.

Yep, won’t someone think about the children at risk from violence that had nothing to do with what happened in Charlottesville? We’ll assume Trump was talking about children being shot down in the streets of Chicago, for balance. Because there’s a lot of anger and hate on many sides, you know. Law and order is what we need.

Say, should anyone in particular be condemned for this? Certainly: those on all sides who hate. Not the organizers of the “Unite the Right” rally or even the murderer who smashed at high speed into a crowd of people there to condemn hatred, because after all, as David Duke reminded his president earlier today, he owes a good part of his victory to them:

Trump said he’d spoken to Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, and that the two of them agreed that the “hate and division must stop, and must stop right now.” We’ll go out on a limb and guess that perhaps McAuliffe might have said something a little more specific about the source of the hatred on display in Charlottesville, maybe.

Trump continued, “We have to come together as Americans with love for our nation, and really I say this so strongly, true affection for each other.”

And then he was pretty much done with Charlottesville, and on to what a great place America is now that he’s president:

Our country is doing well in so many ways. We have record employment, we have unemployment the lowest it’s been in almost 17 years; we have companies pouring into our country, Foxconn and car companies and so many others, they’re coming back. We’re renegotiating trade deals to make them great for our country and great for the American worker. We have so many incredible things happening in our country, so when i watch Charlottesville, to me it’s very, very sad.

How can there be such division and hatred when America is the most prosperous it’s ever been, thanks to bribing a company to open a factory in Wisconsin that will maybe make up its tax incentives in 25 years?

Still, when it comes right down to it, we’re all Americans, whether we’re trying to preserve a Confederate statue, driving a car into a crowd, or flying off the hood of a Dodge Charger Challenger driven by someone who finally gets to run over some protesters just like the meme said:

No matter our color, creed, religion or political party, we are all Americans first. We love our country, we love our God, we love our flag, we’re proud of our country, we’re proud of who we are, so we want to get this situation straightened out in Charlottesville, and we want to study it and we want to see what we’re doing wrong as a country where things like this can happen.

Of course, some people love different flags, like the ones of Nazi Germany and the Army of Northern Virginia. They’re Americans too, and Donald Trump certainly wasn’t going to say anything unkind about them.

Trump then got on to the important business of doing his Veterans Administration bill thing; after saying he wants to heal the wounds of Charlottesville (whoever might have inflicted them, no need to say that) he signed the bill and completely ignored questions from reporters asking him whether he’d condemn white supremacists or call the vehicular attack “terrorism.” Don’t be silly, the car wasn’t driven by a Muslim.

You know who actually did condemn the white supremacists? Mike Idiot Huckabee:

And Marco Rubio, too, who named the problem:

Update: A little later, Rubio followed up with a call for the president to call the Charlottesville attack what it really was:

And no, neither Huckabee nor Rubio would ever concede their party has a long history of dog whistles intended to inflame those very racists and get their votes. But at least they had a small thimbleful more honesty than the president, who just loves all Americans.

In conclusion, the President sure does wish people would stop being so hateful and violent, for whatever reason. Next, we’ll look for a statement condemning the property damage done to that nice Dodge Charger Challenger by the flying bodies of protesters getting in its way.

      • data_ninja

        I’m gonna have to disagree with you on this. Doxxing is bullshit, because it basically implies (or leads to) mob justice. We’ve already had incidents of the Reddit brigades trying to find the ‘real’ bomber during the Boston marathon, and they ended up pinning the wrong person. Let’s also take into account the people who work at Planned Parenthood that get doxxed and stalked by the crazy loons out to get them.

        I understand your anger, and I feel it as well. But there has got to be a better way to deal with this. We’re above this kind of a reaction.

    • Jukesgrrl

      What strikes me about that photo is that the khaki pants-golf shirt-short hair look is totally gay where I live. Seriously, any one of those guys could walk into a gay bar and walk out with a date, so long as they kept their mouths shut. I wonder if they realize that.

    History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the vitriolic words and the violent actions of the bad people, but the appalling silence and indifference of the good people. Our generation will have to repent not only for the words and acts of the children of darkness, but also for the fears and apathy of the children of light.

  • Me not sure

    The calling of this action by the fascist, racist right a protest is a gross mischaracterization of the event .This had nothing to do with protesting an act of public policy involving the removal of a statue. That was a MacGuffin. The whole intent of this was not protest but provocation. They hoped to lure their opponents into an arena where violent confrontation against a less well organized and less ruthlessly violent opposition could be used to create a victory for their cause. When it turned out that the opposition was very able to take them on in the streets they resorted to simple vehicular mass murder. People don’t engage in this type of behavior as protest, but as an attempt to provoke mass violence in response.The leadership of these fools needs to be held to legal account through both criminal conspiracy and murder charges as well as large wrongful death civil suits. Break them. Morris Dees knows how.

    My good will for the white supremacists or their message during their protest march and expectant rally in the park was non-existent to begin with. My concern on if the “Antifa” counter-protesters started fights along your march stopped with the white supremacist use of the Dodge Charger to murder and maim counter-protesters walking away from the park.

    There is no equivalency between fist fights and running people down with a car. Trump is a fuckwit to say otherwise.

    BREAKING: #Charlottesville Car Terrorist Is Anti-Trump, Open Borders Druggie

    Evidence indicates a left-winger mowed down antifa counter-protestors in Charlottesville, not a right-winger or white nationalist, GotNews can exclusively reveal.

    License plate searches of the 2010 Dodge Challenger that killed one and injured nearly 20 in Charlottesville found that the vehicle was registered to a Jerome Vangheluwe of Michigan.

    “When career employees of the Environmental Protection Agency are summoned to a meeting with the agency’s administrator, Scott Pruitt, at agency headquarters, they no longer can count on easy access to the floor where his office is, according to interviews with employees of the federal agency.

    Doors to the floor are now frequently locked, and employees have to have an escort to gain entrance.

    Some employees say they are also told to leave behind their cellphones when they meet with Mr. Pruitt, and are sometimes told not to take notes.

    Mr. Pruitt, according to the employees, who requested anonymity out of fear of losing their jobs, often makes important phone calls from other offices rather than use the phone in his office, and he is accompanied, even at E.P.A. headquarters, by armed guards, the first head of the agency to ever request round-the-clock security.”

    “But as he works to roll back regulations, close offices and eliminate staff at the agency charged with protecting the nation’s environment and public health, Mr. Pruitt is taking extraordinary measures to conceal his actions, according to interviews with more than 20 current and former agency employees.”

          Locally, we’re hearing that national press is trying to lump the copter crash in with the car crash. So far, they’re separate. No official announcement they are related.

    Ok Wonkers. I need some help here. Sorry for the quality of the pics but I shot them off the TV on MSNBC.
    One is a guy standing among the Nazis earlier today. The other is of a guy setting up the podium for Mcauliffe’s presser a few minutes ago. Same guy? I don’t do the Twitter or FB. Maybe someone can pass this on to someone who can get the word out. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/530cc98dcf4737b07b95d74cf0a7011beead6b23ee891c82d416045c362d3080.jpg https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/58427c9ff76b96e912931f17ea5f990279babbbac67d6e549fcc65991e2011d3.jpg

          • BigBoppa ~ Résistent

            You’re probably right but it sure did feel weird when I recognized the guy at the podium. They’ve been looping the other video where he’s in the crowd all day.

    Soooo, a little more than six months into the “Trump Administration” we have:

    1) Multiple grand juries empaneled by a special prosecutor.

    2) Credible evidence of collusion with a foreign government (and money-laundering) on behalf of multiple members of this so-called administration.

    3) Nuclear saber-rattling and casual warmongering.

    4) Alienation of all of our foreign allies.

    5) Threats to jail journalists.

    6) Documented suppression of science and dismantling of the EPA, the DEP, and other government agencies.

    7) Multiple, credible reports of ongoing chaos and infighting at the highest levels of the US government. Absolutely unqualified members of Trump’s family being put in positions of authority in fields they know nothing about (including guarding our nuclear arsenal).

    8) Months of local and DC-based protests and millions of Americans living in fear for their lives thanks to the ongoing GOP efforts to destroy healthcare.

    9) Right-wing packing of the judiciary.

    10) Ongoing, extreme gutting of environmental and financial regulations (mostly under the radar).

    11) A surging white supremacist/neo-Nazi movement inside and outside the government, and violence in the streets.

    But, you know, there was just something about Hillary’s laugh that made people nervous.

    What is happening in Charlottesville should be a wake-up call for every American who has grown complacent under the assumption that our nation’s moral arc naturally bends toward inclusion and tolerance. Racism, anti-Semitism and homophobia are tragically alive and well in America today.
    Today, each and every one of us must condemn that neo-Nazi rallies in Virginia and the violence against counter-protesters in the loudest and most unconditional terms. The greatness of our nation has been forged through the difficult work of binding together people of different skin colors, national origins, religions, and sexual identities into a unified and powerful whole. Silence or weak condemnation will be read as complicity today. Be loud. Be unconditional. Side with love, diversity, inclusion, and peace.

    “David Miliband: we need a second vote on Brexit deal. Former Labour minister enters fray over Europe to urge fightback on ‘act of economic self-harm’
    https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2017/aug/12/david-miliband-calls-second-vote-on-brexit-deal-europe-britain

    “This transatlantic malaise has a common root,” Miliband wrote. “ Politics based on what you are against, not what you are for. Look at the campaigns against the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) and against the EU. There is a common trope: the politics of grievance. ” He claims that the UK is suffering a governability crisis. “Leaving the EU was mis-sold as a quick fix,” Miliband wrote. “Now it looks like a decade-long process of unscrambling the eggs of the national and European legislation.”

        How far? I would think without a functioning radiator the ECU module would shut down the engine to prevent damage the minute the sensors detected a combination of speed, pressure and temperature conditions that would put the engine in danger. The position of the bumper in the picture seems to indicate that the car was in reverse when it was taken. Maybe it was still in motion backwards when the picture was taken.

      No, it needs to be treated as an act of terrorism.

      • Mehmeisterjr

        Would a terrorism charge require a Federal investigation? I’m not sure that Jefferson Keebler Sessions would be on-board with that.

        First degree murder in Virginia, though? Probably more damaging.

          speaking of which – we were told, IIRC, in criminal law class that the locals can bring the murder/assault charges and the feds can bring the terrorism/hate crime charges…just as long as they aren’t the exact same charge (double jeopardy).

He said he lost many (was it “hundreds?”) of friends – yet he failed to attend a single funeral or memorial service for those who died in the attacks. He took a “small business” grant for enterprises damaged by the attacks – yet claimed they had no negative impact on his business.

Do you think postcards, emails, calls would be noticed even if they’re from “leftard” California? And I wonder if there are groups to support and join (besides Swing Left, Indivisible, and the ACLU)?

      He said that he’s long held white supremacist views and that Trump’s election has “emboldened” him and the members of his own Nazi group.

      “We are assembled to defend our history, our heritage and to protect our race to the last man,” Von Kotch said, wearing a protective helmet, sporting a wooden shield and a broken pool cue. “We came here to stand up for the white race.”

Plus if you zoom in on that picture from last night of the donut of absurd tiki wielding fascists surrounding the statue in front of the Rotunda you’ll see a circle of extremely brave young students, arms linked, backs to old TJ, facing the bastards down.

You want to think about the patriots today, think about the young men and women wearing the cloth of our country. Somewhere around the globe they’re putting their life in danger. They’re patriots.

The instructor said that the first person in the class who could solve that Cube would get an A in the course. So, when the professor was not looking I took the scrambled Cube apart and reassembled it in it’s “solved” configuration. Damn, I’m smart, easiest A I ever got.

        After that the cube was scrambled again. Also, again, when the professor was not looking I reassembled it in “solved” configuration, except that I rotated one corner pieces 120 degrees. Then I scrambled it again.

        That minor change renders the Cube broken and unsolvable.

        Oh, and about half of the class were sort of groupies for the Top Engineering Student (A.K.A., I) and knew what I did. And they approved.

        I’m still trying to figure out which Bill Maher some people are watching. I like him. To each their own, but let’s at least be honest about it:

        “It reminds me that this, you know, this is not a problem with the Muslim religion, this is a problem with religion and Christianity is perfectly capably of coming out of it’s dormant phase and, once again, becoming the violent, blood lusty religion it was under the crusades.”
        Maher went after Bill O’Reilly in particular, calling him a “pinhead” for saying that “nobody believing in Jesus commits mass murder.”
        “What do you think the Crusades were? What do you think the entire 16th century in Europe was? What do you think the Inquisition was? The Klu Klux Klan is a Christian organization. Tim McVeigh. I could go on.”

      All he needs to do is go to SPLC’s site, where he will find plenty of them, even nicely displayed on a map of the US for his viewing pleasure. I suppose since we almost never hear of these groups in the news, to Bill, they simply don’t exist…tsk, tsk.

    And downtown Charlottesville is closed for business. An entire half mile of a pedestrian mall with restaurants, theaters, shops…closed on a Saturday night.

      • Cosmopolitan John

        Bibi is very well aware of the political leverage the Xian right provides him with with the US and happily exploits these idiots for his own purposes. Their anti-Semitism is a matter of total indifference to him. As long as Trump does nothing to interrupt the extension of the settlements Bibi will be happy. He may be an asshole, but unlike Trump he’s not a stupid asshole.

        • Old town Urbandale

          What about Sheldon Adelson? How anti-Semitic does Trump have to get before he turns off the money faucet?

          • Mehmeisterjr

            Inexplicable except in terms of sheer greed.

            I am not Jewish. I am even half-German by descent. And this bigotry is abhorrent to me. Somehow Adelson finds it acceptable.

            Is there some kind of Roy Cohn self-hatred gene out there?

          • Cosmopolitan John

            Good question. Maybe Steve Bannon or Sebastian Gorka can help him on that.

            Steve is a little occupied in his bunk at the moment. At least according the Mooch-voyeur.

          • Persistent Demme

            Adelson knew all this before the election.
