'We Must Call Evil by Its Name': Republicans Criticize Trump, Jeff Sessions for Ignoring White Supremacists in Charlottesville Statements

http://www.alternet.org/right-wing/we-mu...ring-white

From the article:
Quote:Donald Trump did not hesitate to compare U.S. intelligence officers to Nazis but after white nationalists waving the Nazi flag erupted in violent clashes throughout downtown Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday, the president failed to call out racists and chide white supremacists — even after a car plowed into a group of anti-racists protesters, killing at least one person.

A spokesperson for the University of Virginia Hospital cited one death and at least 35 injured on Saturday afternoon, the violent aftermath of a what appears to be a deliberate attack. White supremacists gathered near the college campus to protest the removal of a Confederate statute. Self-identified “alt-right” protesters —a key constituency of Trump’s base made up mostly of white men— marched through the campus carrying tiki torches Friday night.

“It’s been going on for a long time in our country, not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama, it’s been going on for a long, long time,” Trump said in a televised statement from New Jersey on Saturday. “We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides ― on many sides.”


...

Of course they're going to ignore the white nationalist domestic terrorists. That's their base and it doesn't fit the "make America white again!" and "blame your troubles on black and brown people!" message. Rolleyes

Conservatism (n.), the irrational fear that somewhere someone you think is inferior is being treated as your equal.

"On many sides" says the bigoted prez. He totally failed this test. What he should do is give Bannon, Miller and Gorka their walking papers. Racists and a nazi have no place in our WH. I heard the car killer came from Ohio. All that way to run over people. That's not my side.

After criticism, White House says Trump condemns supremacists, KKK
Chicago News 08/13/2017, 12:29pm

“Hate and the division must stop, and must stop right now,” he said. “We have to come together as Americans with love for our nation and … true affection for each other.”

Trump condemned “in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides.” He added: “It’s been going on for a long time in our country. Not Donald Trump. Not Barack Obama. It’s been going on for a long, long time.”

On Sunday, the White House issued a statement seeking to expand on Trump’s remarks:

“The president said very strongly in his statement yesterday that he condemns all forms of violence, bigotry and hatred and of course that includes white Supremacists, KKK, neo-Nazi and all extremist groups,” according to a White House spokesperson. “He called for national unity and bringing all Americans together.”
