Let’s make this simple: Trump’s response to the Charlottesville atrocity is an utter and complete disgrace.
I’ve previously defended the guy (here and here), but I cannot bear to listen to his wretched equivocation about “violence on both sides”. I have no love for Antifa – they are vicious thugs – but only one side committed murder. This matters.
Trump sounds exactly like the wretched, slimy left making excuses for Islamic terror. Okay, he’s not quite as bad as those who posted Nazi images in response to the Islamic massacre at Charlie Hebdo, or the rest of the wretched excusers, and he is not as bad as Michael Moore who defended the forces we now know as the Islamic State.
So? You know the answer to this, and so do I: Two wrongs don’t make a right.
So the hell with him. And the hell with those wretched racialists who whined and whined when I said they were Nazis – well, here you go.
I see there’s been another attack, this time in Spain. Of course – why would I expect differently? – the same people crying out of Trump’s head are now finding ways to excuse that atrocity. There’s the usual crap about “unclear motive” and “tiny minority of extremists” trotted out.
They and Trump deserve each other.
