apparently it wasnt the right thing per the UN counsel. and if you think the united states should be deciding and declaring who Jerusalem belongs too or what is right and wrong, then you are stupid. So where does that leave us? back to my original statement, trumptards reaching levels of stupidity that ive ever seen. youre dumb homie, youre a baggage bitch because thats what you are capable of, so please refrain from sharing your incompetent thoughts and opinions.

How dare a Trumpeter call anyone too negative? Trump's entire campaign and policy is built on the very foundation of negativity. Just look at his tweets - contains nothing but negativity, anger and hate around every corner. Listen to his speeches - nothing but negativity and scapegoats. I mean Trump didn't want to condemn neonazis ffs - their very views are built on violence, hate, bigotry, negativity. Trump wouldn't refute arguably the most negative group in recent American history in neonazis. Need I say more?

People are entitled to an opinion - even groups you disagree with. You have the right to hate Trump, but someone else cant hate whomever they want?

Does bladefd decide personally whom everyone is allowed to hate, agree with, condemn, support? Are YOU The Deciser bro?

Dont you want the Prez to remain neutral?

Why is he obligated to reaffirm whatever morality YOUR particular peer group supports.

Prez job isnt to massage your feelings and affirm your personal beliefs.

Would you want him to come out and condemn atheists?

Is he only supposed to affirm what bladefd and his lib friends believe in?


Your priorities are wrong. You want to hate Trump first and foremost. Whatever hypocritical “reasons” come second. Reasons which, if the shoe were on the other foot, or Obama’s foot, youd be saying the EXACT opposite. Youre tailoring your logic to the endgoal of hating Trump.

Take a walk, silly boy.

This paragraph of nonsensical whining is definitely 100% pure positivity. Truly stunning and brave.

He’s not a leader.

Yes, the previous President driving a wedge in racial issues had nothing to do with it.

Neither does the media, which fuels a divide just as much, if not more, than the last two Presidents.

According to the UN, perpetrating and denying Genocide isn't a big deal and that country is welcome to join

So calling them "extremely distasteful; unacceptable" isn't condemning them?

This is really quite striking in how utterly clueless it is. Yes, America is divided--a country of over 300 million--because of one man. NOT because of its 3rd world crime rates and rapidly declining quality of life; NOT because of the Federal Government trampling all over local rights and people's ability to have power to govern their own affairs in their own localities and communities; NOT because of the ongoing and increasingly fanatical and intolerant 50+ year culture war; NOT because of wholesale corruption and the selling out of native citizens to foreign interests (e.g. NAFTA, wars that have nothing to do with America, sanctuary cities that protect criminals, selling off property to all the corrupt rich of the world, etc. etc.). I mean, this is only scratching the surface of all the things wrong with America.

If you can't realise that Trump is a symptom rather than a cause then you are completely deranged. "omg he tweeted a funny gif...reeeeee division!!! bridges not walls...love not hate...blah blah blah...(insert more empty-headed platitudes as you please)."

In the initial speech, he didn't condemn neonazis at all. It took public outcry and 2 days later, he finally said it's unacceptable. Then he backtracked on it.

Initial response:
Quote:
Speaking at his golf club in New Jersey on Saturday after a man rammed a car into protesters, Trump said: “We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides. On many sides.” The president added defensively: “It’s been going on for a long time in our country. Not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama. This has been going on for a long, long time.”

No mention of him condemning Neonazis. Or calling it unacceptable.

Then after 2 whole days of folks calling him out and public outcry:

Quote:
WASHINGTON — Under pressure all weekend, President Donald Trump on Monday named and condemned hate groups as “repugnant” and declared “racism is evil” in an updated, more forceful statement on the deadly, race-fueled clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Trump had been under increasing pressure to call out the groups by name after his previous remarks bemoaning violence on “many sides” prompted criticism from fellow Republicans as well as Democrats. The president described members of the KKK, neo-Nazis and white supremacists who take part in violence as “criminals and thugs” in a prepared statement from the White House.

In his remarks he also called for unity.

“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 bring us together as Americans,” he said.
https://www.pbs.org/newshour/nation/...ville-violence

Here's him backtracking afterwards:

Quote:
On Tuesday, Trump was back home at Trump Tower in New York City and took questions from reporters in an impromptu, highly combative press conference that was expected to be limited to statements by the president and members of his Cabinet about infrastructure.

Instead, he returned to equating the demonstrators — who came to the college town to protest the planned removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee, the Confederate general, donning Confederate flags and swastikas, some carrying guns and shields, chanting "blood and soil" and "Jews will not replace us" — with counterprotesters.

"I'm not putting anybody on a moral plane. What I'm saying is this — you had a group on one side, and you had a group on the other, and they came at each other with clubs and it was vicious and it was horrible and it was a horrible thing to watch," Trump said. "But there is another side. There was a group on this side, you can call them the left, you've just called them the left, that came, violently attacking the other group. So you can say what you want, but that's the way it is."
https://www.npr.org/2017/08/15/54374...r-charlottesvi

Glad to see a few Republicans came to the rescue right away after the backtrack by Trump:
Quote:
SPEAKER PAUL RYAN (@SpeakerRyan): “We must be clear. White supremacy is repulsive. This bigotry is counter to all this country stands for. There can be no moral ambiguity.” ... SEN. MARCO RUBIO (R-FLA.) (@marcorubio): “Mr. President, you can’t allow #WhiteSupremacists to share only part of blame.They support idea which cost nation & world so much pain 5/6” … “The #WhiteSupremacy groups will see being assigned only 50% of blame as a win. We can not allow this old evil to be resurrected 6/6” … MITT ROMNEY (@MittRomney): “No, not the same. One side is racist, bigoted, Nazi. The other opposes racism and bigotry. Morally different universes.” …

I really dislike the left(im center right)but to act like 09-16 wasn't the same with right wingers blaming everything on obama (thanks obama!) ect. the only dif is that the left is main stream and right wing blogs are not. Fox and trump's twitter are the only thing mainstream on the right. Conservative ideologies are better than liberals ones, its just that the republicans( and the right in general) are a bunch of bigoted retarded morons with bibles. take that segment out and id proudly call myself republican

B-b-but it's divisive to say that there was bigotry on both sides! Those people who turned up at someone else's event to expressly intimidate and commit violence and who are rampaging around the country tearing down statues aren't divisive at all--and if you say they are you are being divisive!!! PBS, Politico, Paul Ryan, Marco Rubio and Mitt Romney said soo!!

False equivalency. Yeah, there were some Anti-Fa people but tons more white supremacists and neonazis.

It was a Neonazi/white supremacist protest. The neonazi protest the first day in Charlottesville was going then counterprotesters came rolling in. They walked around, some cursing/pushing/peppersprays by both sides. Then it became violent as the bigger group of neonazis surrounded the smaller group of neonazis. The neonazis are the ones who threw the torches at the counterprotestors on the first day. The second day you could say the blame was on both sides as it got more violent.

Nobody is rampaging around the country tearing down statues. You don't even live in America. Know your place and get lost.

You just condemned people for bigotry, using bigotry.


So that was weird.
