The clamor about the violence in Charlottesville continues. Two groups of racist thugs clashed on Saturday, and the President is being blamed for it. Donald Trump gave a thoughtful and presidential response to the violence with the information that was available at the time.
We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides.
The President gave a unifying speech, and he condemned ALL hatred, bigotry, and violence no matter the origin. This speech was not good enough for many people, particularly the mainstream media, liberals, and even some Republicans. They claim that the President’s words were not good enough and that he did not go far enough because he did not specifically condemn violence perpetrated by white people.
The whites involved believe that the President did not name them because he supports what they are doing. He is not, and he made this clear in another statement two days later.
Even though the President named some of the “criminals and thugs” in his second statement, he was still denounced once again. It was “too little, too late” to satisfy his opponents. He condemned racism on Saturday, but it was not enough to satisfy. He condemned racism again on Monday, but it was considered too late. It appears that to those who oppose him, nothing the President could say would satisfy them.
An editorial at The Patriot Post explains that Trump was not too late because he was repeating the counsel given months ago.
So, on Monday, Trump decided to respond to the growing media-created fervor. He addressed the nation once again on the Charlottesville riot. Trump reiterated, “We must love each other, show affection for each other and unite together in condemnation of hatred, bigotry and violence. We must rediscover the bonds of love and loyalty that brings us together as Americans.” And this time Trump added, “Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.” Of course, that message is too little, too late for the Trump Derangement Syndrome crowd.
But it’s not too late at all. In his Inaugural Address, Trump said, “When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice…. Whether we are black or brown or white, we all bleed the same red blood of Patriots, we all enjoy the same glorious freedoms, and we all salute the same great American flag.” It’s been his message all along. The media just don’t want you to know it.
There are people and factions in our nation who wish to destroy America in order to create a “one world government.” I call them “secret combinations” because they come out of darkness to destroy. One of their main tools is division. They know that a nation that is divided cannot stand for very long. This is why people have encouraged division (Barack Obama) and paid protesters and rioters (George Soros) to cause unrest and violence.
The problem, as I see it, is that the loud voices in the nation claim that white violence is different than black violence. There is no difference. All of it must be condemned in order for it to stop. We all know that racism divides our nation. The only way to combat this hatred and division is to follow the counsel of President Trump. We must recognize that all races bleed the same color of blood and enjoy the same freedoms in America. We must unite and become one people, and we can do it by condemning and eradicating all violence in our nation.
