So Donald Trump shows up 2 days late to the party. TODAY he finally calls it like it is, well as his handlers have told him to read the teleprompter, but why couldn't he have done that on Saturday?

Now I know he signed a bill Saturday in regards to the VA and that's awesome however, he had 2 opportunities to reply to the media asking him to denounce these Nazi fucks and he ignored it.

Also, why was it that during his speech Saturday when all the violence was happening, why the fuck did he have to go and say "how great the economy is doing and unemployment is at all time low?" Is he really that narcissistic that he needs to praise himself even during a domestic terrorist conflict like we had on Saturday?

And lastly, when will he stand in front of the media and answer questions? He gives his speech/talk and runs away and doesn't answer a single question.

OK sorry for the rant. As you can see, in all honesty, I'm not a big politics guy. So when you reply to my questions/comments go gentle. Hike fucked me up years ago and I'm still healing from it.
hockey, my family, working out and having some beers!

I always thought that the "Obama won't call out radical Islam" or "Obama won't call out BLM" arguments were stupid, as is this garbage with Trump.





Maybe/Maybe not, but the "Outrage" for ones response (or lack there of) doesn't match the other.

You mean like denouncing “the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.”?

You want to compare this to say the Ft Hood shooting and Obama's & the Press response?

Both fringe groups are shitbags, but to try ans claim that the Press handling of these incidents are anything similar, is disingenuous at best.



I don't want to compare shit. I wasn't all panty twisted over the jargon that BO used for terroirsm or which cop funerals he didn't show up for - you guys were.

My white privilege story for the day.

My wife and I went shopping for flooring yesterday. I gave her my wallet and she put it on her purse.

Fast forward to this morning. She and a couple of friends were walking at the local park. My wallet was still in her purse, in her car.

I drove over to the parking lot to get my wallet thinking that I had the correct key to her car.

I parked perpendicular to her car and try the doors on both sides of the car. Wrong key.

A hefty old white lady was walking past and she gave me the evil eye.

I look over to her and say "you think I'm breaking into this car, don't you?"

She says yes and walks away still looking at me.

I yell over "it's my own damn car lady!"

Bit of an over reaction, but WTF?

As a straight, white male of the middle age persuasion, I must say, the struggle is real.

Again, you dont have to be panty twisted to note that the response in the press, etc is similar. Hence the inconsistent outrage

The media's perception/integrity levels (Congress' too BTW) are lower than Trump's. I don't mind that he walks away. Hillary only took questions on her private jet from hand-selected media. Plus a few of those jackaloons are more so activists than reporters these days.

Agree on the lateness. Agree on lacing in other topics. His delivery has always been poor. Of course, actions speak louder than words... always have and always will.

I'll give you that....

Not to be anti law enforcement but this event clearly could have gone differently if they had prepared with more resources....

But again, just like the old adage nothing good happens after midnight, nothing could possibly have gone right opposing a White Supremist group...

There is a photo that is circulating of a black police officer who was assigned to protect the White Supremist group. Must have been tough for him but by all accounts professionally did so..

My wife was leaving the tax collector's office today and a guy asked her to sign a petition allowing non-violent felons to vote.
She declined and the guy called her a racist.
Shit like that is why we voted Trump.
As loony as the alt-right is, the far left is no better. They'll throw out that race card any time they don't their way.
That only makes it worse for those who face real racism on a daily basis.
And here's a novel idea: want to keep your right to vote? Don't commit felonies, violent or not.

And by "they" I mean SJWs, the media, and politicians who stand to gain from racial tension. Not just some members of the black community.

The photo (if its the one I saw - dark blue uniform, shades, no hat, head down like he's sad?) was from a different rally....

I don't think its totally fair - the comparisons begin made between Ferguson's prep for BLM and Charlottesville's prep for the White power folks - but I would be interested to see if the police presence would look different had it been a black org protesting instead of a white one.

You have your answer already.

Look at how the press covered the Ferguson riots.

The whole "hands up - don't shoot" line is a blatant lie.

Yet the press covered it like it were the Gospel truth.

Wow - I was not clear on my point at all, lol. I meant the police response. In Ferguson they had all of the heavy equipment out, the cops came ready for war. In charlottesville they came dressed to chaperone a middle school dance.

And to be clear - I'mn not saying that the cops WOULD respond differently based on race, or that Ferguson was grognto call in SWAT.... just voicing my curiousity.

False equivalency

Would there have been violence but for the Pro-FA/SJW's?
