    Why do conservatives feel compelled to go out of their way to defend the white supremacist rally/protest/riot in Virginia??

    Conservatives make no such defenses of other such actions by other groups.

    Aren't conservatives tacitly acknowledging that they feel some sort of kinship, or sympathy, or something in common with these racists? Why else would they go out of their way to defend them?

    Why? It's simple; because the media is calling on them to condemn the racists.

    To their credit, a lot of the republicans have. They pretty much had to, given Trump's lack of popularity, but still, they went ahead and put in the effort.

    The media has turned Trump's tactic against him. They have him between a rock and a hard place now; either he does not mention the white supremacists and comes off as a bit of a hypocrite at best and a racist sympathizer at worst, or he does what they want and looks weak to his supporters. It took me all of 5 minutes to realize what they were doing. They're smarter than I thought.

    I never thought of myself as racist. But I think I am getting there quite quickly. Why? I guess I am tired of the unbalanceness of it all. Yeah, I know that is not a proper word, but I used it anyway.

    BLM is black supremacy. They invade, invoke, harass, burn, loot, instigate, etc etc etc but if anyone states the obvious, they are deemed racist. Maybe..just maybe, "honky" is fed up with the double standards?

    At least he takes time to respond to events such as today in Virginia to learn FACTS before speaking. Unlike Obama's stupid "that could have been my son" when the thug got his thieving ass shot.

    BLM isn't about black supremacy. It's an incoherent mess of a movement that's led by narcissistic malcontents, moronic idealists, and anarchists.

    I believe that lawbreakers should be held to account in these type events, no matter what their cause.

    Ok. That sounds better than my attempt to make sense of something I still can't make sense of.

    They were having a "rally" or whatever you want to call it. They were not invading restaurants and inserting themselves in peoples faces while they tried to have lunch with someone screaming about BLM. And did Brown's dad ever get sent to jail for screaming BURN IT DOWN during the riots? Nope. Why not? Cuz he's black. There are many lawbreakers. But if you are white...shit hits the fan and you are a racist. "White" rallys are a no no I guess.

    It was a rally to support a WEST POINT GRADUATE and brilliant American military leader and White civil rights. Why do anti-White folks consider that "supremacy?" Unless White people make Non-Whites feel inferior because they are not White?

    Y'all KNOW that the protesters were hired thugs, don't ya? Probably from the same list of hirelings for the riots done in every state just to make noise and cause a ruckus.
