Why didn't President Trump openly reprimanded the White supremacists, Neo-Nazis,
Alt-Right & other hate groups in the Charlottesville Riots?
It's exactly like President Trump said it was. The alt-right was there, peacefully protesting the tearing down of a Robert E. Lee statue and the alt-left showed up and caused a scene, which resulted in violence. The alt-left went after the marchers with clubs and the marchers reacted.
They were peacefully protesting? They were armed with weapons, and yelling racist slogans. They surrounded the protesters who had encircled the statue, and beat them, while the police did nothing.
Alt-left? Just Nazis, and people who weren't Nazis.
They had tiki torches. I guess that could be used as a weapon.
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.

How can any decent human being think that it's OK to defend white supremacists and Nazis? No one can deny that's what they were, they had banners advertising the fact. I find it shocking that a President could take the attitude Trump has. If it's possible, he has sunk even...

Fck - I did. I knew it would upset me. And it did. But I think I forced myself to watch this stuff so it doesn't seem like a 'Games of Thrones' episode. I've seen the truck plowing in Europe and it got me upset . But not as much as this.

The Klu Klux Klan (and now the White Supremacists) are, unfortunately, part of the American character. More specifically, they are the embodiment of everything bad about that character. The driving force behind these groups led to the huge wave of lynchings and the genocide and ethnic...

Would you ever consider voting for an openly gay/lesbian presidential candidate?

Gays are in the military as of present and served sinced time began. Although I am not gay but I'm for equality for everyone. There's no liability in letting gays and lesbian serve openly in the miltary. 35 other countries allow openly gays and lesbian serve in their militaries including Britian...
