    Is the president of the United States a neo-nazi sympathiser?

    The president of the US said there were “very fine people” in Charlottesville, who simply joined a neo-Nazi rally to protest about a statue. Is this statement not simply a support for the extreme right.

    I wouldn't doubt it if he was, though it's hard to know what he sympathizes with or doesn't. Though it's hard to know what any pathological liar really believes about anything or will do about anything.

    That being said, the bigger problem than whether or not chump is a NN sympathizer, is our educational system, or rather, our lack of interest in thorough education, especially in the power of linguistics. Most American's don't actually know or understand what a Nazi is. Most believe anyone who is violent, racist or supremacist, is a Nazi, because it's become a pejorative term for anyone who is any of those things. This is a problem because it allows actual Nazis to hide in plain site, implementing their systems quietly while everyone else plays pin the tail on the not-nazi turdnuggets.

      Could you explain why this is not hate speech? Obviously truth is no defense, which person is no defense.Are we OK to have this type of speech? If we are then I should be allowed to use it on you, correct?

      Eric, I'm hard pressed to find anything in this response that qualifies as hate speech.Are you asking that simply because it doesn't align with your own ideology?

      When I think of a hate speech, I think of the speeches spoken by Hitler.Hate is a strong word.

    In the past week Trump has given three statements on the Horrific event. All three  condemned violence. He also condemned that both sides were at fault for participating in the violence.  Both sides came armed, and ready to fight. Violence has no right side. On his last two occasions he made it very clear too condemned the KKK as well as ny white supremacists. Listen to   each statement in full, all three are very clear that our president was appalled, sickened about what occurred.  He reached out to the country to come together, and heal...  I realize my comment will fall on deaf ears. However, I implore anyone with an open mind to take the time and listen to all three comments.  Not sure what more he can say.... He spoke his truth it was not PC, it may not have been yours or my truth, but it is what he felt, and he has a right to his truth.

      The difference between the sides is that one side murdered. By condemning both sides the POTUS put murder and not murder on the same level. In other words downplaying the murder by a neo-nazi.

      Peter, Please listen to all 3 of Trump's statements not just a sentence or two that the media has posted. He has condemned the far right groups over and over.  And yes he did condemn the "violence on both sides". Violence is Violence

      So murder is the same thing as a slap in the face... There are many degrees in violence.
      The second statement of Trump was a political correct one. The ones he tweeted were his real thoughts. And he did not condemn the murder in his first reaction.

      Peter - I  disagree, listen to all three statements in full. You might feel very differently. His first statement was wonderful.  In his first remarks he knew nothing about anyone being killed. This is a false report the media is spreading.

      Do you think it is apropiate for the POTUS to tweet a picture of a train running over a CNN journalist just after a neo-nazi run a car into a demonstrator. This tweet supports violence, it does not condemn it,

      Peter said "The difference between the sides is that one side murdered"  The action of one person speaks for the entire movement then?
      So  the police killed in Dallas at the BLM rally & the cops murdered in NYC after Sharpton/BLM march speaks fr

      If the Neo nazi movement does not condemn the murder in strong words then yes it does reflect the sentiment of the whole movement.
      And I can not remember a public statement of the neo nazi movement condemning the murder.
