As thousands of white nationalist and alt-right protesters descended on Charlottesville, Virginia, voices from both sides of the political aisle have emerged to condemn it.
The news from Charlottesville, Virginia are horrific. At least one person was killed and several were injured during the violence unleashed by white supremacist terrorists. Emulating ISIS tactics, a car slammed into counterprotesters opposing the white nationalists’ rally. My thoughts are with the victims and their families.
In the midst of tragedy, it’s positive to hear more voices openly condemning white terrorists. From now onwards, let’s think twice before we dismiss, minimise or gloss over the terrifying wave of violence enabled by people like Donald Trump.
There is no compromise possible with such forces. No votes to be attracted to the other side. Just the brutal naked face of white power, fighting for domination over everybody else classified as “other”
‘A man has been arrested and charged with murder after a car rammed into a group of people peacefully protesting against a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday, killing one person and injuring 19.
Police said the fatal victim of the car ramming was a 32-year-old woman and that they were attempting to notify her family before releasing more details.
Col Martin Kumer, the superintendent of Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail, told the Guardian that 20-year-old James Fields of Ohio had been arrested following the attack.’
What we witnessed yesterday in Charlottesville, Va is just the beginning of what to expect from “Donald Trump’s law enforcement presidency.” We are in an unchatered era of tremendous Dishonesty, Incompetence, erratic on the job training, Money Laundry & last but not least, Meanness towards anyone who looks, acts, worship or talk differently.
Although I have been surprised it took this long for the first White Nationalist Domestic terrorism clash under president Trump, Trump remained true to his conservative values: TOTAL FAILURE of indifference and unconditional support for white supremacist & hate mongers! The president even went futher to equate the actions of white supremacist to those individuals protesting hate & fear mongering.
Donald Trump remains the most significant national security threat to the Uited States & its democratic institutions.!! Charles NANA
