The unrest has intensified a national debate over whether monuments to the pro-slavery Confederacy are symbols of heritage or hate.

Off by one letter.

Not heritage or hate.

Heritage of hate.

Trump defends the Charlottesville white nationalists stronger than many actual white nationalists have.

There hasn't been a full reveal under pressure like this since Col. Jessup in a Few Good Men.

Now we know.

I think it more than fair that any Trump supporter, here or anywhere, needs to come clean on whether they do or don't disavow white supremacy.

And if they don't, well.... Don't engage them.

It only legitimizes them.

Posted in: Officials: White nationalist rally in Virginia linked to 3 deaths See in context

Lots of good comments. My two cents:

People in America have the right to express their opinions in public - time, place and manner restriction applied. The KKK, Nazis and WS's in Charlottesville are people in America.

The KKK, Nazis and WS's have the right to express their unpopular and obnoxious opinions. It is not terrorism for them to gather together and march -- with the standard time, place and manner restrictions. I don't know if their intentionally inflammatory night time torch march (see what I did there) got prior approval, but if it did, then all is ok.

If you think its terrorism for them to march and spew their, granted, hateful bile, then you understand neither terrorism nor free speech.

Driving your car into a crowd of people is not a form of protected speech. It is a crime. And, it seems pretty darn likely this crime by the young man from Ohio wasn't some random thing.

It is possible to probable that this was a terrorist act. We will find out the details soon enough.

Finally, assuming the car attack was terrorism, that makes neither the KKK, Nazi rally, nor the counter protesters responsibile in any way. That is not how it works.

In the US, we have the right to gather and express our opinions in public. We do not have the right to advocate immanent harm to others. And we do not the right to drive cars into crowds of people with whom we oppose.

Posted in: Australians stunned by Minneapolis police shooting of woman See in context

Police getting away with shootings is not a racial thing.

For the shooter, no.

For the victim, yes,

According to the most recent census data, there are nearly 160 million more white people in America than there are black people. White people make up roughly 62 percent of the U.S. population but only about 49 percent of those who are killed by police officers. African Americans, however, account for 24 percent of those fatally shot and killed by the police despite being just 13 percent of the U.S. population. As The Post noted in a new analysis published last week, that means black Americans are 2.5 times as likely as white Americans to be shot and killed by police officers.

Posted in: White House reveals additional Trump-Putin discussion See in context

First, if Trump were really a decent negotiator, he would have insisted on not even having Putin’s interpreter present. Putin speaks perfectly good English.

Second, what the hockey puck? Trump had to have another meeting with literally no one else attending? What does he have to say to Putin that he’s afraid of anyone hearing him say?

At this point, it is a rebuttable presumption that Trump is compromised.

Think. About. That.

Third: in case it wasn't obvious beyond all doubt, the dead-enders will never give up on Trump. Never. It doesn't matter what you say, what facts become known. Nothing will shake them from their depraved state.

Nothing.

In fact, you'd be better off talking to a brick wall b/c at least a brick wall won't interrupt with gibberish.

Then what do you think about Trump Jr. lying about the meeting?

I think the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. This just in:

Trump and Putin Held a Second, Undisclosed, Private Conversation

The hourlong conversation in Hamburg, Germany, took place at a private dinner among world leaders at a concert hall on the banks of the Elbe River during the Group of 20 economic summit meeting, with only a Kremlin interpreter present to listen to the exchange. It followed a formal meeting between the two presidents that lasted more than two hours earlier in the day, and included their foreign ministers for a fraught discussion about Moscow’s attempts to interfere in the 2016 American elections.

First, if Trump were really a decent negotiator, he would have insisted on not even having Putin’s interpreter present. Putin speaks perfectly good English.

Second, what the hockey puck? Trump had to have another meeting with literally no other American in the room? What does he have to say to Putin that he’s afraid of anyone hearing him say?

At this point, it is a rebuttable presumption that Trump is compromised.

Posted in: White House planning 'Made in America' week See in context

"Made in America week" as it tries to focus on issues that matter to the president's base

Hmm. I wonder if this rallying of his base has anything to do with the most recent polling.

Showing Trump at 36%.

See, Trump's base has been eroding since he took office because not all those who have stuck with him till now are as far gone as his would-be defenders here are.

About those people, the dead-enders, let me just point out, once again, the nature of the problem:

They don't care. About anything. Other than power.

They don't care about facts. They don't care about truth. They don't care about honor.

They don't care that Russia helped Trump get elected, in violation of our laws, traditions and democratic process. In fact, they see it as a feature, not a bug.

Because for them, and let this be crystal clear, POWER is the means and the end. Democracy is a tool to seize and remain in power, only so long as you got the people on your side. When you don't, democracy is a liability.

Its all about power.

Posted in: Macron chides Netanyahu on settlements, urges new Mideast talks See in context

The settlements are not only bad; they are stupid - a constant reminder that Zionism, as a historical event, was predicated in part on stealing Arab land.

And here's the kicker: secular, Reform and Conservative (i.e nearly most) American Jews under the age of 50 overwhelmingly don't like that. And this, along with our dislike for the cultish Orto Settlers and their fanatic religiosity in general, we have begun to distance ourselves from Israel.

Settlements spell the death of American Jewry's affiliation with Israel.

Posted in: NHK sorry over Hitler T-shirt worn by talk show guest See in context

For too many, Hitler -- what he represents -- is just a triviality; a thing to be cynically used for whatever reason. Reagan = Hitler? Really? Hitler was a 'war criminal' and so can be compared to whomever? Really?

As for the right-wingers: Woosie liberals just overreact to the normalization of Hitler? Seriously? You really believe this? You think the problem is the overreaction?

It is sadly apparent from the above thread that far too many have learned nothing about the danger of men like Hitler.

And this trivialization of last's century's great threat to civilization means only one thing:

Such evil is all the more tolerated; all the more likely to happen.

Shame on you.

Trump is an idiot about foreign affairs. And many other things as well. He's an easy mark too: show him a few tanks and treat him to a nice dinner and he's as happy as a schoolboy at the chocolate shop.
