Antifa

In a video clip replayed by NBC on Wednesday, the Charlottesville police backed President Donald Trump who said "both sides" came to Charlottesville, Virginia looking for trouble during the "Unite the Right" rally on Saturday.

Violent clashes between the leftist Antifa thugs (pictured above) and white supremacists protesting the removal of a statue left one woman dead and dozens injured.

In the brief video clip replayed by NBC, President Trump assigns blame to the protesters and the counter-protesters at the rally.

A voiceover from an NBC reporter confirmed that police said both sides "came to Charlottesville ready for a fight." (Click to watch video).

Shockingly, CNN's own Jake Tapper lashed out at the Antifa thugs for assaulting journalists at Saturday's rally.

In a series of tweets on Wednesday Tapper blamed the violent Antifa thugs for assaulting 2 reporters who were in Charlottesville covering the rally.

"At least two journalists in Charlottesville were assaulted by people protesting the Klan/Nazi/alt-right rally:... these are unprovoked assaults on journalists doing their jobs -- by those marching *against* the hateful racists. Disgusting."

He then took on Antifa sympathizers who heckled him for trying to do the right thing.

Until Wednesday CNN was hesitant to call out Antifa for their role in instigating the violence that led to a woman's death at the peaceful rally.
 







  • Yardgirl

    Oh so white racists plan a rally with guns and shyte and nobody was supposed to show up to defend their rights?? FOH!! uuugggh!!

  • Mec-One

    Showing up to protest is one thing. Showing up armed and ready for a fight makes you really no better than those you came to protest ........

  • Yardgirl

    Well it might be my military background but I would not show up to a rally with armed militia unprepared. End of discussion.

  • nick c

    They charged all them people that toppled that Durham statue with a whole list of felonies.

  • Scromes1212

    Thank you Sandra. People need to see the truth. They had the right to a peaceful protest and they got there permit to do so. Then folks without permits came and disrupted there protest. I don't agree with them but in America we should have the right to protest when we feel the need to.

  • Scromes1212

    Exactly

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Sandra, I thought you believed that blacks had better things to discuss than racism, but you post about Antifa.

    You're just a hypocritical self-hating political hack.

  • wiseone

    They also charged the bytch who mowed down those people with murder. Let's talk about that.

  • Tbay _

    Exactly what rights of the counter protesters were infringed upon by this rally? Everybody has a right to free speech. If you don't like the speech, stay home, organize your own rally, etc. Counter protesters came to start trouble and that's what they got.

  • Tbay _

    How so?

  • Scromes1212

    You don't even see the big picture smh dems keep the discussion on race and they wil never win back the house or the senate. Lol this only works in the favor of republicans. The average white person doesn't care about that topic. It doesn't effect them in the least. Banning was right, this is only making it easier for them to keep control of politics.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    The statues are not the problem. The problem is the leftwing media lying to the public and spreading a false racist narrative to stir up trouble.

    This is what the liberal media won't tell you:

    Robert E. Lee endorsed the Democratic Party

    The Confederate soldiers were Democrats and Confederates

    The KKK was created by the Democrats in the 1860s to keep Republicans from ending slavery

    The Confederate war was fought by Democrats against the Republicans who wanted to end slavery

  • Mark mcharm

    The Truth is the statue is coming down anyway

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    If you know the Antifa thugs are bringing bricks, chains and bottles to the peaceful rally, would you go empty handed?

  • JV

    Well I don't believe this at all. It's a CNN reporter which means it's fake news.

  • Mark mcharm

    No such thing as left and right

  • Monique

    Please provide the objective statistical data on what Antifa has done to free modern day slaves since that seems to be their passionate issue. How many child sex slaves have they saved, for example? Is there any objective data to demonstrate they actually care about others being caught up in the modern day black market of slavery? A day when owners don't have to own up to their transgressions, but can hide and pretend to be something they are not. Slavery has never been wiped away off the earth. Don't kid yourself. If you think your symbolic efforts are deeply rooted, you act in vain. It won't help the hidden slave trade one iota. Where is the evidence that the energy, time, and the money that will be required for removal of chunks of metal, will have an impact on living, breathing, souls that suffer every single second of the day in our modern world. Is the Rome or America? I can't tell anymore.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I guess you missed all the news reports of Antifa thugs beating up unarmed, peaceful protesters for months now?

  • wiseone

    You got it twisted - whenever there is a rally by the KKK and Neo-Nazi's they are looking for trouble. They are the scum of the Earth and counter protesters had a right to show up. Everybody also has a right to live too but those ignorant racists want to exterminate people of color

  • Scromes1212

    And? It was coming down before they decided to protest. So why show up with bats and weapons? The statue is coming down, right? They changed nothing, it was a WOT. Period.

  • wiseone

    The discussion ends when we say so - not you.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    So it's only fake news when you don't agree with it?

  • Scromes1212

    "They had a right to show up" but they didn't get a permit to protest.

  • wiseone

    Fox 5 is the place to go for fake news.

  • You Could Never

    The Selma to Montgomery marches were to be peaceful as well.

    Fukk their peaceful protest off the strength of that shit alone.

  • JV

    (I was trolling)

  • You Could Never

    We know the two parties were reversed LONG AGO. So there is no need for the media, liberal or otherwise to tell us this

  • Scromes1212

    That's fine if you feel that way but if that's your logic then there is no point of discussing it.

  • Tbay _

    Yes they are the scum of the Earth and people have a right to protest and counter protest. But just because they had a right to show up doesn't mean it was a smart decision do so. If you go looking for a fight, don't be surprised when someone gets hurt or killed.

  • wiseone

    Were you there? Go somewhere else to defend those vile ignorant racists. You get nothing here.

  • Renee26

    Ok...that point is moot...the fact remains that the confederates wanted to continue enslaving black people and those yt mf's that were protesting the statue being removed want minorities to all be wiped off the face of the earth...the same mission Fug them all, they kids, and they ancestors.

  • JV

    They had a right to a peaceable assembly though, no? I'm not condoning their violence, but I believe had a right to be there.

  • Scromes1212

    I didn't have to be there to discuss it. And I didn't have to be there to know they didn't have a permit. And since we asking questions, where you there?

  • Mark mcharm

    I Think people have to understand if you support kkk members and/or nazis you lose credibility immediately. this is not a "elephant or donkey" thing jews ,nor black folks started this divide in the first place and if you come to protest with hate in your heart you have lost the right to protest and should be called out.

  • Renee26

    But it's only 2nd degree murder...and what about assault charges for the other people who got injured....he will get a slap on the wrist

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    It was all good when the Antifa thugs beat up black people and Trump supporters. But CNN turned on them once they attacked reporters.

  • Scromes1212

    I agree with you. I was just speaking on the fact they they got there permit and they staged a protest. Nothing wrong with that in America.

  • You Could Never

    How many times have BROWN PEOPLE tried to protest peacefully and were UNABLE? The one year anniversary protest of Ferguson even turned violent and they were the in PEACE. FOH about THEIR rights. I dont care about their rights.

  • Mark mcharm

    Can you enslave people in America in 2017 ?

  • Renee26

    Who cares....the permit didn't have a list of names of who could show up....there was one in place to have large numbers of people show up...and they did. there are ALWAYS opposers at rallies and the opposers don't have to request a permit to oppose nothing

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    We talked about that already. This post is about the Antifa thugs who incited the violence that led to him mowing them down.

  • Scromes1212

    That is not true. A protest has nothing to do with who you hate. It's a American right. Hate or not it is our right to hate whoever we want to hate. The same thing they say about Jews, Farrakhan says, right? Does that mean he can't put together a million black man March?

  • Scromes1212

    Your correct but that doesn't take away the fact that they went through the proper channels to stage there protest. That should be respected as Americans

  • Renee26

    Right domestic terrorist should have no rights...they have never ceased to exist and people don't have to accept their presence. The KKK and white supremacists have been terrorizing minorities in America since day one. Fug them

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    The media has protected Antifa because they thought the thugs were fighting on the same side.

    Did you know Hillary Clinton donated $800,000 to Antifa so they can travel from city to city causing trouble at peaceful rallies? It's about time the media called them out on their BS.

  • Scromes1212

    And the fact you don't care about there rights makes you worst then them smh

  • Justlooknout
  • Mark mcharm

    Man you have no comprehension skills if you protest with white lives matter and saluting hitler why should you be allowed to protest on property that black and jewish taxpayers are paying for ?. supporters of these clowns need to ask why would you support hate they started in the first place. who killed emitt till?

    Sandra all your posts not just the political ones have a different tone. It's not the same anymore. Maybe the blog is something you don't want to do anymore. At first I thought you had diff writers but now I'm convinced(and not by these type of posts) that you don't like to do this blog anymore or your readers?????

  • Scromes1212

    I'm not supporting them smh I'm supporting there right to a peaceful protest . Period.

  • Ms.Vanilla

    When you really sit and think about the root of why this is happening, you can do nothing but shake your head and say damn. And the devil moves another chess piece.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    If it's not a big deal why are Republicans present and past publicly distancing the party from Trump?
    H.W. Bush and Bush the Lesser, McCain, Flake, Lindsey Graham and even that weasel Paul Ryan have publicly rebuked Trump.
    The longer Trump keeps acting an azz the less legislation gets done.

    There will be no repeal of Obamacare.
    The GOP has to pass an increase in the debt ceiling and a budget by September 30th with only 12 where both the House and Senate are in session before the new fiscal year.
    Forget tax reform and infrastructure unless the GOP can get bipartisan support.
    McCain is out indefinitely which means that the Republicans have only a 51-48 majority and can lose only one vote and have Pence break a tie, but what is Trump doing he's insulting Jeff Flake and this morning Lindsey Graham.
    I know you want to focus on Democrats because Trump is a truly a disaster but he's destroying the GOP from the inside out.

    Also, I have no idea why you think that Independents as well as many minorities are not going to vote next year based on the over-reach of a Republican controlled Washington D.C.

  • Scromes1212

    It doesn't take 3 reasons, only one. Because we want our rights from birth! Bloop. Looking ass.

    I've been a fan of this blog since 2007 or 2008 and somewhere along the line it seems you have lost your integrity and staple as a reputable blogger. I appreciate opposing opinions and objective journalism. However, you have seemingly lost more screws.

  • KarmaBackAround

    On a more victorious note, our governor here in Va is moving to have all statues relocated or removed entirely in the commonwealth of va. I love this governor..he has 0 tolerance for this and we deserve this type of man to defend Virginia with 45 clearly not giving a damn..

  • Scromes1212

    Is that why they won most the elections since he became president? And they will keep winning if y'all stay on the same stuff y'all been on. McCains seat will go to another republican. Sorry brother but it's not looking good for the dems

  • Yoni7

    WOW. Thanks. I saw a live feed. Time permitting won't allow me to watch it fully.

  • Kayke

    That "be tolerant of the intolerant" is asinine. Provokes no change. It's martyrdom, and all of those are narcissist.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    They say the apple doesnt fall far from the tree.

  • JV

    Well, let's be fair now: Most of those elections shouldn't have even been close, and yet the Dems made it interesting. Fivethirtyeight is giving them a 9 point edge on the generic ballot, but there's a steep hill to overcome and a lot could change. Also would have to agree that the Dems currently have no real message. I'm hoping the Progressive wing makes a leap, we'll see. 46 is a lot of seats to make up in one election cycle.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    He's been more presidential throughout all this than Donald Trump.

    He should run against Trump in 2020. He could definitely win.

  • Scromes1212

    I'm speaking on Antifa. Did they have a permit? Go ahead and Google, I'll wait smh

  • You Could Never

    VA has the most confed memorials of any other state. Gonna take awhile but this is great news.

  • Scromes1212

    I agree with most of that but let's be honest. That poll is not reliable in any way.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yes I'm also talking about Antifa and the other counter-protesters. Did you even read the article? Apparently not.

    You Trumpaholics are beyond hope. I cant with you today.

  • Scromes1212

    Taking down confed statues is going to get you the White House? Lol dems are delusional. This only unites the right. They will own the house and the senate for years to come if the dems keep this up. If we just talking politics then this only loses them votes. White folks do care about rascim. They don't experience it. The dems need to find a cause that will get them back the house and senate.

  • JV

    The trend I've noticed -- and this is just me spitballing here -- is that Republicans seems to be running about 5% over what the polls suggest. I am starting to believe that conservative distain for the media, in some circles, is leading to people not being as open as they used to be. That's pretty much the way it went in the special election in Georgia (I think it was Georgia?). It's not impossible that things have become so polarized that the polls are irrelevant, but I'd need to see a few more election cycles before I'd say that. Both Hillary and Trump were/are incredibly unpopular and I think that really mucked things up.

  • Mec-One

    I guess you missed the reports of the peaceful protest in Denver that went off without a hiccup. They requested a police presence and none of the antifa bunch got out of line ....... oh wait, it didn't even make the news ........

  • Scromes1212

    Was the word Antifa anywhere in the article? Don't start that self righteous stuff bro smh Dems are losing and the real Facts. White people aren't going to rally behind people taking down statues of American war heroes smh that doesn't even make sense amh

  • Scromes1212

    You are correct. They care nothing about this issue. As long as the economy is doing well then the right will keep winning.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Why are you changing the subject?

    Because everything I said was true?

    Trump and the Republicans will have nothing to show for their efforts come November 2018 and there will be zero reason for the Republican base to get out and vote.

    All of those districts had Republican representatives before, but all of the Democratic candidates did much better than the previous ones.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    The Democrats only need 24 seats to regain the majority in the House.

  • JV

    A good economy from a Democratic president didn't help Hillary though. If anything, that's a sign that intangibles like trustworthiness could be important. But definitely the economy is always #1 with voters, healthcare usually second, etc.

  • Scromes1212

    "Trump and the republicans will have nothing to show for there efforts come November 2018"
    What about the economy? Unemployment down to a record low, wages up. You don't think there going to take credit for that? They will run with it and keep all there seats, and you know it's true. Stop it lol

  • Guess Who

    So basically this White march blew up in their faces, lol.

    They were protesting the removal of a statue...now OTHER areas have decided to take down these confederate monuments.

    They thought folks was just gonna sit quiet and let these hateful, feral neanderthals protest without consequences.

    I guess they THOUGHT wrong. Hey, TBH, IDGAF about statutes, Idols, monuments, lol....but I do like that folks are SICK and TIRED of motherfukers like the KKK, Neo-Nazis and White Nationalist spreading hate under the guise of self preservation and white pride. They have wreaked Domestic Terror for DECADES and now when it's thrown back in their faces....it's "from all sides"? LMMFAO. Did the allies get called that when they fought the axis power? Did whites/cops get called out during the Ferguson debacle? FOH with that bullshyt.

    November 2018 is over 15 months away and I doubt that the economy will be as robust as it is now and that Russian investigation is moving along swiftly.
    If you believe that the economy is the most important thing then you're wrong.

    Lots of things including international incidents can happen between now and then.

    People are finally seeing Trump unravel and understand that he isn't fit to be president. If the Congressional Republicans don't rein in Trump then Republicans will pay a steep price.

  • You Could Never

    Its a stand against white supremacy. They have always stood for that. Signs and reminders of the confederacy. It didnt take Charlottesville. this has been going on for eons. Calls to remove them. You must not be in the south. Calls to remove the confed. flag from the SC statehouse. Calls to change the names of buildings on college campuses that are named after confederate heros. All of it has BEEN HAPPENING. Im sorry you have been SLEEPING. But in the words of Dap in School Daze...WAKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKE UPPPPPPPPPPPPPP

    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/15/opinion/confederate-monuments-white-supremacy-charlottesville.html?mcubz=0

    "While what happened in Charlottesville is a stain on our nation, we should remain hopeful for the future. Those who gathered in the name of hatred and bigotry did so under the banners of defeated regimes. This does not bode well for their cause. Truly patriotic Americans, of all colors and creeds, can and should stand up to them as they did this past weekend. But we also need leadership at all levels of government to condemn not only their actions but also white supremacy itself."

  • KarmaBackAround

    We actually have a commission here unlike other states who controls they monuments..he had to sign and get signatures to even propose removing the statues..its been a work in progress YOU ALL are just hearing about it with the recent issues in Charlottesville but this has BEEN a issue..and furthermore i could care less about plans for the white house..i care about the moves being made in my state

You ask why did it take Charlottesville...when this has BEEN happening in the south. Folks nicely asking for signs of a whole entire group of LOSERS to be ERASED. Folks dont want to erase "their history". These damn hurtful ass symbols still are in place. Its not new the removal OR folks asking for the removal of them. I keep saying folks bc its been people of BOTH races that find the mess beyond offensive. And its not hard to comprehend on why they should go.What is it helping to KEEP them?

  • 2telldatruth

    Perhaps those "ANTIFA thugs" knew they would have to take matters into their own hands seeing how white supremacists thugs have infiltrated the ranks of law enforcement. Oops....did I say infiltrated? My bad they never left. Now we're left with their offspring since law enforcement is usually full of nepotism. My, my, my, the more things change the more they stay the same.

  • You Could Never

    Chile Im in NC with ties to Alabama (my parents and both sides of fam). I also just saw 40 years old. When I say this mess been going on my whole life? I guess folks feel like bc now its national news it is new. My grandfather told us once years ago that when he was a BOY there was a statue in downtown Montgomery (the ORIGINAL Conf. Capital) that someone was putting a sheet on every night to cover it up. This is before cameras to catch the culprit. Finally they caught the person in the act. It was a little old JEWISH woman who was doing it. Driving out there in her car every damn night with her endless supplies of sheets. said she had heard the help around her house had complained about having to walk past it to go to the post office. You would be surprised the amount of white folks this shit NEVER sat right with.

  • wiseone

    I agree - your discussion - not ours

  • Waya Hedia

    Your governor is truly one of the dumbest people in the Dem party. I feel sorry for you and all Virginians.

    One would have to be completely blind not to already know this.

  • Waya Hedia

    He's simply not smart enough.

  • You Could Never

    Why did it take these protests and demonstrations to get him to remove and relocate these statues?? It should have been done long ago before these demonstrations started

    Lost.

  • Waya Hedia

    Nice try , but aside from the media, your fantasy.

  • wiseone

    Listen up you Donald Trump loving jackass. It was good vs evil. The counter protesters came to let the vile racists know this is not your country and we will not tolerate your vile rampage. They do not own America and have no say over who inhabits America. They are trying to go back to the days when they lynched people and bombed churches but that was in the past and it will stay in the past. You act like 2nd degree murder is a misdemeanor. The bytch killed a woman and injured 19 people. The legal term may be 2nd degree murder but to me it is murder. Now be gone with your dumb a$$.

  • KarmaBackAround

    Yes because its wrong! Its a slap n the face. Anybody with a conscious doesn't agree with the statues. And yes you're right..this becoming national news makes folk think this is NEW news..it's not. We been dealing with this confederate crap n the South for ever..fools riding around with confederate flags waving from their pick up trucks..enough is enough

  • Shagustus

    You're retarded. Pull your head out.

  • AnotherBlackGirl

    It was a rhetorical question. Im far from being lost.

  • wiseone

    Is that all you got? If that's the best you can do you lose. Not having a permit is minor compared to mowing somebody down with a car. The truth be told the KKK and Neo-Nazis are home grown terrorists and they came to counter protest to let them know we will not go down without a fight and most of the protesters were white. Even good white people find those animals repulsive and your dumb a$$ is talking about a dam permit. Mowing people down with vehicles is one of the tactics used by ISIS.

  • wiseone

    It works both ways.

  • KarmaBackAround

    No need to feel sorry for me or the state of Va..your personal opinion that he is dumb is not stoppin the changes he is implementing..he is not as dumb as YOUR President..we've seen dumb governors especially republicans here forever..time for a change! Bloop!

  • You Could Never

    GIRL! Pick up trucks? My ex his JOB had one in their BREAK room. When they got sold the new owner took that shit the heck down and was like we arent doing that here anymore. He was the only black man who worked there, but they have since hired other blacks.

  • hottlanta

    Charles Blow speaks the truth about the situation and the Republican party. He is going on Republican Nixon since black folks think that the Republicans are our friend. Black folks don't wanna hear nothing bad being said about the Republican party.

  • 2telldatruth

    Truth hurts.

  • wiseone

    I don't care what the legal term is - it's murder. The other people came to show solidarity against the racist thugs and most of them were white. Even decent white people find them repulsive but that does not include you. You are repulsive for trying to stick up for those thugs.

  • wiseone

    A permit - is that all you've got? They went there to meet evil head on to let them know don't even think about carrying out your evil deeds. Those scum bags want to go back to the past when they ran up in people's homes to lynch them and bomb churches. The counter protesters are telling them they will be met with opposition unlike what they call the good old days when they got away with murder.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Wow, you can really be dense sometimes bro, maybe intentionally so. But I got time today, so lets break it down...
    The fact that the word "Antifa" is not in that article is irrelevant. So-called Antifa was just a part of the larger overall group of counterprotesters. So what the article says regarding the counterprotesters also will apply to Antifa. Are you too blind to see that?
    But the bottom line is... Trump claimed the counterprotesters didnt have a permit (as if that makes the neo-nazis demonstration legitimate and the counterprotesters' demonstration illegitimate). Either way, Trump's claim was false, or misleading at best.
    If you READ the article it clearly says:

    "...counterprotesters did not need permits to protest that rally"

    "“I think what the president is trying to say is that counterprotesters did not have a permit to be in Emancipation Park,” Heinicke said. “That’s irrelevant.” He added: “Either way you cut it, the president got it wrong.”"

    "But they did have permits for rallies on Saturday — and they did not need one to go into or gather near Emancipation Park, where white nationalists scheduled their rally."

    Maybe if you would just read the article for what it says, instead of trying to find something to prove me wrong or prove yourself right, it would do you some good. Have a good day.

That bigot who intentionally ran his car into a crowd of people needs to have a worse punishment than what he will get. You damn right I have no problem with those people who came out to oppose the KKK...why because the KKK and their friends came out to start trouble and show their numbers and flex their "white power".

  • Renee26

    You so ready to snap on somebody that you can't read or comprehend clearly....the dude should be facing a 1st degree murder charge because what he did was premeditated as well as 19 counts of aggravated assault ...I assume you don't know the slightest thing about the law. It's that yt privilege that has him facing a lesser murder charge. But idiots like you are just happy to see that he was charged with something. No justice for the other 19 people who were injured is needed huh?? As long as he does some time it doesn't matter if the length of the sentence is fitting huh??

  • wiseone

    Bytch make me shut up. You are the troll. If you racist bytches want to come to this site to defend those raging racists you will be put in your place.

    All this rhetoric and finger pointing is pointless...our country and our president are racist. Most white people are incapable of taking responsibility of their own or ancestors misdeeds or immoral actions. Most of the politicians that are outraged aren't taking any actions to right anything. At least that we know of.
    I am bursting at the fact that I feel somewhat helpless to make any progress. I don't want to protest, I am tired of talking about it, I don't want to write letters, I want to make some unequivocal change but what or how...

    Prove it. You spread BS that you clearly pulled out of your behind with zero proof and you expect rational people to believe it? That is the sign of a fool.

    You can't just make crap up and expect people to respect you. Prove what you wrote.

  • DrDean

    Can you grasp the simple concept that the people who "showed up" to confront the sick racist aholes may well be sick, anti-American aholes themselves?

    Antifa who led the charge against the racists, has been responsible for most of the violence during the presidential campaign and on college campuses whenever a conservative speaker is invited to address students or staff.

    Antifa is every bit as bad for America as the racists and neo-nazis. For one thing there are tens of thousands more Antifa in America than there are KKK, Aryan Brotherhood and other ahole racist/nazi groups combined.

    Get real and think for yourself. You are being lied to by the Left's leadership.

  • 2telldatruth

    Your reaction is proof enough.

  • DrDean

    Call the Taliban and ISIS for help, they are experts at destroying historic monuments that "offend" them.

    In 2001, the Taliban blew up the 1700 year old Bamiyan Buddhas in Afghanistan because they offended their sensibilities. Over the past few years, ISIS has destroyed historic monuments in Iraq and Syria because they offended them.

    The head of the NAACP had this to say:

    ""I think it's all senseless. All senseless," begins Bethlehem NAACP President Esther Lee. Lee says the images that she's seen over the last few days, have been tough to watch.

    Lee says violence is still violence. She doesn't agree with the vandalism of Confederate monuments in Baltimore or condone the actions of those who tore down the statue in North Carolina, either.

    "You know that's history. That was in that point in time. You can't eliminate what history is. So I disapprove with young people pulling down those statues," she says.

    Lee then adds, "A young woman died. Two officers were murdered in a plane crash and all for what? Because somebody in their mind decided, “we don't need to look at that anymore.”
    "It shouldn't be," she says softly.

    While Lee doesn't agree with President Trump on everything, she does think that history should be left to stand and advises others to join her in praying for the president."

    It is both un-American and irrational to destroy history just because it offends someone. Tyrannical movements always seek to re-write history, destroying history they don't like and replacing it with their version of history that supports them in taking power.

    "If you can cut the people off from their history, then they can be easily persuaded."
    – Karl Marx

  • DrDean

    "If you can cut the people off from their history, then they can be easily persuaded." – Karl Marx

    You seem to support the destruction and re-writing of history just because it's offensive to some. That is exactly what your governor and others are doing by removing/destroying Confederate monuments.

    For the record: By supporting your governor's destruction of history, you are acting like average Taliban or ISIS members who also support their leaders in destroying historic monuments because you don't like them.

  • DrDean

    I wish McAuliffe was just dumb, but he's not. He's smart, devious and evil. He is using the death of the young woman (who would most likely be alive if McAuliffe's police did their jobs and kept the white-supremacists and Antifa apart...) as an excuse to destroy American history that Leftists don't like.

    Those who destroy history are evil, by definition. The Taliban destroyed 1700 year old Bamiyan Buddhas in Afghanistan saying they were "offended" by them; ISIS destroyed quite a few historic monuments in Iraq and Syria because they were offended by them. The Nazi's destroyed hundreds of pieces of art and statues that offended their political beliefs as well.

    So McAuliffe is behaving more like a anti-American fanatic than he is an American governor.

  • Waya Hedia

    While I agree with most of your statement, my view of the man is that he is indeed a very stupid human being. Just a pandering, political jackass.

  • wiseone

    No they are not sick' It is too bad we didn't have more of them when the lynchings and terrorizing of my people were going on in the 1950's and 1960's and before. They wanted them to show up - that is why they were armed to the teeth. You can talk that Donald Trump BS to somebody else - it does not work with me.

I don't usually call people retarded but when I do ITS REAL ... unfortunately battle is part of being a human ... there are times when you must defend yourself ... they should have been removed a long time ago its actually more insulting that they were not they belong in museums not on our streets FUCK GENERAL LEE AND EVERYTHING HE STOOD FOR ... Those monuments are like swastikas to black people and even his relatives think they should be removed from the streets ... no one can erase the history of slavery but we don't need to be staring at it in 2017 ...save it for the history books

  • http://realitytea.com/ Lady Chatterley’s Lover

    I feel the pain.

    I don’t think anyone here is so naïve as to believe that today’s climate is about Democrats and Republicans. For the time being we are a two- party system so we evaluate and choose which poison to drink, it makes no difference what the parties did 100-200 years ago. Like I tell my son, history is important but you live your life and make decisions based on the present. Know the past, focus on the present and prepare for the future. As I have said previously you bleed if you are stabbed by either party.

    Unfortunately, today in my opinion (and I am entitled to it) we have a government that is not representative of we the People of the United States. Our government is not forming a more perfect Union. There appears to be no interest in establishing Justice or insuring domestic Tranquility, or providing for the common defense.

    BUT, It is our responsibility to promote our general Welfare and secure the Blessings of Liberty.

    As for me and my family and our prosperity, I am ordaining the following steps:

    1. Accept that this moderator and message board are of a time gone by.
    2. Accept that while some of us have been divesting arms others are availing their 2nd Amendment rights
    3. As demonstrated recently, recognize that 1st Amendment rights will be used to brandish and intimidate with arms
    4. Listen and dialogue, accept others and their culture, while recognizing that the neighbor next door may be more dangerous than the enemy abroad
    5. Do what is necessary to make our home and hearth safe.
    6. Realize that all POLITICS ARE LOCAL
    7. Get up, get out, and BECOME THE CHANGE I WANT TO BE.

    THIS is the alt-right that trump tried to say "had some "good guys". : "When the journalist asked him how he planned to “burn out” 11 million immigrants, he responded: “We killed 6 million Jews the last time. Eleven million is nothing.”

    Mr Barker is the grand wizard of the Loyal White Knights faction of the KKK, which participated in the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia last weekend.

    In his interview with Ms Calderón, Mr Barker referred to her as a "n*****” and a "mongrel". He also claimed that his organisation was a Christian group, not a hate group, and that he did not consider himself a racist.

    You just asked a question - Yes, people "can" be enslaved in America in 2017. In the human trafficking world, they do buy and sell people like cattle. It's not legal, but it's done.

  • Elevated Soul

    What's wrong with you?

    ANTIFA has been beating up Republicans and anyone else that doesn't agree with them but of course you didn't know what ANTIFA was, because your Fake News has been covering for those fascists.

    Bottom line is the KKK had a marching permit and the Soros funded ANTIFA did not.ANTIFA is no better than the KKK. They hate anyone no matter what race you are if you don't agree with them.

    I don't rep either left/right therefore I take the emotion out of politics.Partisans like yourself will never understand my political steelo because you're a partisan.

    The Media and Dems thought it was a good idea to send a fake non cause having aggressive protestors with no real authenticity, to bully another group of hateful protesting trouble makers. The KKK is a very violent group that needs no explanation.
