    99% American political ideologies are unhealthy - left or right.

    But it's rare that the opponents of people who wave swastikas lose out on the optics. But that's what's happened when that medicated, upper middle class snowflake teeny booper mowed down a rake of his own peers.

    Trump's attitude is correct and bipartisan. That he's upset media types and snowflakes isn't meaningful.

    It seems General Lee is not taking the removal of his statue lying down.

    An uncanny number of tragedies has befallen his contemporary opponents.

    You think he and the mayor should label Wes Bellamy, the deputy mayor, a black supremacist?

    People in Ireland will greatly over estimate the amount of sympathy a protestor in the street or highway will get from the public here. They have used it up by blocking traffic and causing some deaths from people not getting to a hospital in time.​

    Well, it hasn't taken long for someone to blame Putin for it all:

    Three fatalities.

    The distortion of the facts here is astounding.

    That is a joke. The cops were withdrawn. Who gave that order. Nobody with half a brain would swallow this.

    Haven't watched any MSM but apparently the narrative is evil Nazis came to Charloteville to commit violent acts and killed three people.

    I do not know the details but,,
    A person just watching that would say complete horseshit straight away. They took no questions and ran off. The question of course being, where were the cops?
