    Do you believe that the ascendancy of President Trump was influential in the Charlottesville riots &

    other acts of racism by the Alt-Right & other White Supremacist groups?

    No. Everyone has a right to express their opinion and whether you are alt-left or alt-right, you have a right to be heard.

    The right to Freedon of Speech/to express one's self does NOT translate to the right of creating chaos, panic, injury and even DEATH to others.  This insane behavior is NOT a right but known as CRIMINAL, for which people must be held accountable.
    These outrageous activities and events have been going on forever...everywhere, by NUMEROUS idiot fanatics, for some asinine reason or another!!  Where the hell have you been??  Under a rock for a few decades??
    And what the HELL would any of this have to do with Trump?  Have any of the many RIOTS like this one been the fault of any of the previous Presidents??   Are people STUPID enough to think one man can cause normal, logical, peaceful people to suddenly become violent morons with no brains or sense of responsibility and create utter destruction??   I think not.  The individuals who engage in these criminal, ludicrous activities are our every day generic scum bags, who thrive on behaving like savages.

      I have no doubt.  Of course they'll get around to blaming him if they haven't already.  What else is new?  BTW, the majority of my response was to Sycoph....not you. I assumed U would know that....LOL

      Oh, I know that.  I am completely out of it today.  I was thinking about my deceased parents, especially my mother.  She was a great person.  I miss her dearly.   Getting older can be such a bummer in some instances.  Peace, Fpherj48.

    No I don't, these groups existed long before Trump was elected. There isn't the slightest evidence Trump is a racist or an enabler of racists. Apparently many Democrats feel that anyone who supported Trump is a racist whether they realize it or not.

    Of course, the Democrat party has for a long time, shamelessly tried to pin the racist label on anyone who doesn't agree with them. They also seem to have the fascist tendency to use racism as a club to silence opposing views.

    During the Obama years, hate crime hoaxes have soared. If fact,  over the last 10 years there's been over 100 hate crime hoaxes. Since America is one of the most peaceful and tolerant nations in history, the left has had to fabricate offenses to keep alive the false belief in widespread bigotry and racism.

    Identity politics along the violence associated with it has been of the rise since the Obama presidency. Obama and the liberals did their best to fan the flames of division by advancing provably false claims of racism and bigotry of whites and others. Identity politics see's people as members of groups rather than individuals, this in itself is dangerous.

    The true threat of tyranny in America comes from the left not the right. Liberals have for years tried to connect fascism to the conservatives when in fact small government conservatism has nothing in common with them at all.

    Fascism has alot more in common with the political left in that both want more government control of society and the economy, both want to silence dissent through speech codes, both believe the free market to be a corrupting influence on society, both advocate wealth redistribution (legalized theft), both are secular and oppose traditional religion and morality ect......

    No, social justice leading to systematic condemnation of whites on the basis of only their demographics did.

    Top colleges teaching classes on why whites are inherently bad and Western culture evil.

    Stanford University Introduces Course on ‘Abolishing Whiteness’

    That calls to kill white people are not considered unacceptable at universities but can lead to tenure.
    Mohammed Abed, a CSULA tenure-track professor of ethics and classical Islamic philosophy believes that genocide of whites is “morally required”.

    Look at how the kill all whites, kill all men and kill all Jews has tags are never considered unacceptable by Twitter's trust and safety council, but support Trump or oppose affirmative action and you'

    Diversity training at companies is often explicitly biased. I have sat in diversity training where the female POC said all whites are racist, all men are sexist, all heterosexuals are homophobic and transphobic. It was an implicit bias training course. I asked if she recognized the explicit bias in that statement and was formally reprimanded.

    Ashleigh Shackleford, HR training, saying all white people are racist, you aren't human

    Another case was when my former employer had a class called "What White Men Really Think". Premised that white men were only conservative because of social conditioning and communicated that you have permission and really should become liberal.

    When someone can publicly advocate white genocide and NOT be punished in any way, why wouldn't the class hearing it decide to group together for its literal safety?

    Black Activists Call for Lynching and Hanging of White People and Cops

    This is the logical end result of identity politics and liberals routinely demonizing whites.

    I don't support identity politics in any form - it is the elevation of group rights and death of individual rights.
    I also condemn rank racism in all forms, but per many liberals, to apply equal standards is evilly racist. Trump's condemnation of all sides, antifa and KKK, was seen as bad for the same reason.
