Yet When Muslims Do It, It's Called "Terrorism"

A car plowed into a crowd of people peacefully protesting a white nationalist rally Saturday in a Virginia college town, killing one person, sending at least 26 others to hospitals and ratcheting up tension in an increasingly violent confrontation.


And Trump can take his "many sides" shit and shove it up his and his neo-nazi staffers' asses. Is is the bitter fruit that Trump has sown with his embrace of the neo-nazis of the alt-right. The neo-nazis were very clear at the demonstrations that they believe that Trump is on their side and he has given them no reason to doubt that. When some act of terror or violence is committed by one of Trump's supporters, or people sympathetic to Trump, he is either silent or, when he does say something, it is his typical both-siderism bullshit.

Marco Rubio gets it:

And, as to this, no fucking shit:

But let's seem them handle it as terrorism, too.

From twitter:

Unite the Right speaker pulled gun on person at WalMart today. #Charlottesville cops showed up and then let him go. #DefendCville

Holy fuck. In the middle of some Nazi's livestream about how the left is not tolerant a driver ploughs through Charlottesville counter-demo.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this an ISIS tactic?

Is it time to take up arms? I swore an oath to defend against all enemies, foreign and domestic. These dogs are traitors, and need be eliminated.

If not hanged from the nearest tree, gunned down in the street.

I, for one, am anxiously awaiting our resident Trump defender to spin this into a leftist, liberal double standard affair.

1. Trump complained that Obama wouldn't use Muslim and terrorist in the same sentence. Same as Trump not using White Supremacist and terrorist in the same sentence.

2. The governor of Virginia denounced, at the podium,these people for what they did, bringing violence to Charlottesville. Trump merely hid behind Twitter and passed condolences to ???

3. Trumps use of the "many sides" reminds me of the interview where he said we have killers too, comparing the USA to Russia. Just bullshit and another dog whistle to the Alt-Right. For someone who self promotes himself in the use of vocabulary he sure isn't being clear in the denunciation of the radical right wing groups.

It appears that your driver was an Anti Trump dude. Reports are (and it is early, so they MAY be wrong here) are that he is a lefty.

I'd wait before jumping to conclusions and (again) looking like an ass.

He had an Ohio license plate in Virginia, so it seems more likely to me that he came for the Nazi rally. And make no mistake, it was a Nazi rally. Crowds of tiki-torch carrying assholes chanting "blood and soil", confederate battle flags next to German swastika flags, crowds of goons beating clergy with bats and brass knuckles.
But go ahead and do just what everyone expected and blame it on the left. We're used to it.

I won't put up his name, per Comrade Misfit's policy, but he's from Ohio and registered Republican.

Oh B., I'd love to hear your source for that. He was there with Vanguard America, one of the leading "alt-right" groups...maybe he's to the right of Trump, is that the excuse? And while you're at it, provide those others sources we ask for too in previous posts.

Comrade Misfit said...

I await your retraction for implying that I'm an ass.

B, I like how you say that you'll wait to jump to conclusions but just have to comment that "reports... are that he is a lefty". Given what we know now I'm curious where your sources got that idea from because the evidence to the contrary is pretty overwhelming. They sound pretty biased to me. Perhaps you should consider getting your news from somewhere else?

Overwhelming: I've seen his mugshot and compared it to the picture of him protesting with a supremacist group earlier that day. It's unmistakably the same guy. His mother has made a statement that she thought he was going to a Trump rally.

B said...

Comrade, I wasn't referring to you.

Unknown said...

That's it? No walking back any of the other garbage and propaganda you keep posting? Go back to Breitbart if you don't have anything constructive to say and won't own up to your frequent mistakes.

Rule 1 ("Don't be a jerk.") and Rule 2, especially 2.A, are in effect, people.

Who, if not our honorable Comrade, were you addressing with the pronoun "your", B?
