Opinion | These are your people, President Trump

President Donald Trump’s mealy-mouthed mutterings on the terrorism let loose in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday are worthy of the hypocrite and instigator of hate that he has proved himself to be. Trump knows what was at work on those streets and who was behind it. As well he should. They are some of the same forces that helped to put him in the White House.

Trump’s people, also – were out in force in Charlottesville with their hate-filled minds, their guns, and a weaponized automobile.

That was your crowd down there in Old Virginia, Donald Trump.

They were speaking your language, vomiting your sentiments, acting out what animates you from within.

So why are any of us the least bit surprised that Trump’s devoted clan of white nationalists would be so emboldened as to brazenly emulate their klan forbears and take it to the streets? One of their own reached the White House, with their help. It’s enough to make an old Confederate proud, and a present-day white nationalist as arrogant, reckless and dangerous as can be.

The progressive hardcore left media is in full-blown hate-Trump mode. Which means the progressive hardcore left media is full-blown hate Trump Voter mode.

First, these are not Donald Trump’s People.

Have you ever been so racist you received an award from Jesse Jackson because you hired so many minorities?

Second, if the situation was reversed or a Muslim it would be #NotAllMuslims.

And this article would be about how people shouldn’t let Islamophobia fester and all that.

Let em

The Left wants us to feel a need to condemn that which has already been condemned. Their facts are wrong. Their own violence provokes responses. We need to stay cool headed

And the same people that killed those police in Dallas? Or how about the guy that shot the Congressman and other Republicans at a softball game.

Okay, we’re all Nazis and Klansmen now, so says the Media and the GOPe.

From what I have read, he was an Anti-fa who plowed into the crowd that was throwing rocks at his car. So, he plowed into his own people. Wonder if Big Media will report this??

This garbage are your communists Democrats and a perfect example of your hate for America

“Don’t look at the violent counter-protesters!”
That’s the meme today.

Every point he makes can be made about the enablers of the leftist violence.

Shove it, MSM.
It is you who started this.
The end will be unpleasant for all.
But most unpleasant for you.

The more they say crap like this, the stronger Trump’s support becomes. (Don’t tell them).
