Our cheerless leader didn't want to alienate his alt-right, racist base, so he waffled on his statements, made up some mythical alt-left, and then said there was blame on both sides.
Really? If you walk down a public street, yelling racist slogans like "Jews will not replace us.", and waving a Nazi flag, do you expect people to smile and wave, and tell you to have a great day? If you come to a protest armed with bats, guns, and gas masks, are you planning a peaceful march?
These people came from all over the country, looking for a fight. They got one. The citizens of Charlottesville didn't want them there. The blame is on the guys with the swastikas, and the camo, and the guns. Our president is too gutless to say so.
