    I would call it an act of terrorism actually.

    Surprising but welcome, some leadership at a time that it's needed. Cruz is ever the opportunist.

    I dislike Ted Cruz, but I'll give him credit for taking a stand here. Once again Trump is being abandoned by those who aren't quite as lacking in credibility and standards, even if only slightly more principled.

    such an easy way to get credit and trump ****ed it up. I guess Cruz was smart enough to realize that denouncing Nazis is an easy political W

    Props to Cruz, just speaking the sane, plain truth of it.

    I mean, it shouldn't be that hard to get people to speak out against white supremacy (?)

    a
    You are correct. It shouldn't be. Sadly it is.

    Watching baseball, don't have time to read this thread. Was angling for a summary.

    Oh! Stick w' baseball. 20 yr old crazy rammed into peaceful counter-protestors of a white supremacy march in Virginia. He killed one 32 yr old woman, and critically wounded about four others. Nasty, nasty day. Bipartisan condemnation and labels of "domestic terrorism," while Two Scoops avoids criticizing the white nationalists.

    Damn, this was the UVA march? Charlottesville's a great town, I loved the Mayor's quote yesterday when the torches went marching around.

    It totally is a great town, and none of the dimwit white power people were from Charlottesville. They just wanted to keep the General's statue up.

    by the way, e'rybody, McCain:

    Our Founders fought a revolution for the idea that all men are created equal. The heirs of that revolution fought a Civil War to save our nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to that revolutionary proposition.

    “Nothing less is at stake on the streets of Charlottesville, Virginia, where a violent attack has taken at least one American life and injured many others in a confrontation between our better angels and our worst demons.

    “White supremacists and neo-Nazis are, by definition, opposed to American patriotism and the ideals that define us as a people and make our nation special.

    “As we mourn the tragedy that has occurred in Charlottesville, American patriots of all colors and creeds must come together to defy those who raise the flag of hatred and bigotry.


    Thank you, again, John McCain, for your basic decency and belief in the American experiment.

    Yeah, more and more people both left and right are denouncing the white supremacists. It shouldn't be a surprise, but The President of the United States, a poster paid to post by Russians, and @bigtexxx can't seem to find it in themselves to call out the perpetrators of this horrendous act.

    Maybe it's better to paint how extremist these few people are. Too bad one of them is the President of the United States.

    This was a landmark weekend in American stupidity. And we still have a whole day to go.

    Identity politics is a cancer, this is just another reminder of that.

    It's unnecessary for whites to gather in the first place. They have never been oppressed.
