Liberals are having a blast blaming President Trump for a bunch of nasty white supremacists wreaking havoc in Charlottesville.
I have no idea how many times I’m going to have to say this, but we COMPLETELY CONDEMN their ideology and actions. NOTHING ABOUT THEM IS CONSERVATIVE.
President Trump rocked the boat by condemning the violence on many sides. Keywords, many sides.
“We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides,” Trump said.
I absolutely agree with his statement, but I’ll say this: I wish he would’ve said the words, “I specifically condemn white nationalists. I reject their crooked ideology. It’s abhorrent.” Until he gets specific and utters something along those lines, this won’t stop.
Do it, Trump. Say it. The country needs you to say it.

But now we need to talk about the holier-than-thou leftists. Because WHO IN THE WORLD do they think they are? These are the same people who continually refuse to condemn cop hating BLM protesters, Antifa thugs, radical Islamic extremists and terrorist-sympathizing loons like Linda Sarsour. Who are they to talk?

I completely agree, Pelosi! Curious though. How many times have you condemned Antifa thugs and hateful anti-cop BLM agitators?
Trump’s America: The last days of White rule. It’s always a bitch to have to give up power you’ve held for 300 years https://t.co/2OKcWZc8bA

Let’s be clear. The hatred we’re seeing in Virginia lies at the feet of Donald Trump. Stoked during the campaign,his silence condones this.

LOADS of Republican leaders have condemned those losers. Where have you been all day?
Remember even if POTUS does finally speak out against the events in #Charlottesville he doesn’t actually give a shit. Actions, not words.

So either way Trump doesn’t care. Good way to keep the narrative steady.
We have nazi sympathizers and white nationalists in the White House. Condemn them too. They should not be receiving taxpayer money.

Only racist would think there are “many sides” in this situation

OF COURSE! We can all agree that white nationalists are nasty, despicable humans, but GOD FORBID we call out the left’s extremist losers too. That’s racist!
Antifa, short for “anti-fascist,” is an ironic moniker because they themselves behave like fascists. https://t.co/EToryh4X0I

Of course we condemn ALL that hate stands for. Until @POTUS specifically condemns alt-right action in Charlottesville, he hasnt done his job
— Chuck Schumer (@SenSchumer) August 12, 2017
Like I said before, I want Trump to say it too, but WHEN HAVE YOU CONDEMNED LEFT-WING HATE GROUPS, HUH Chuck?
Schumer is a ridiculous hypocrite. Stayed quiet when BLM and Antifa commits hate speech and violence and Obama said nothing. All of a sudden https://t.co/INgx9jixBC

Nothing wrong with calling out white supremacists by name AND calling out Antifa by name and condemning both.

Dems are pathetic. Trump immediately condemns violence in #Charlottesville but apparently its not good enough
When will Dems condemn Antifa?

I am no fan of alt right but we can’t deny that when Antifa showed up thats when everything turned violent #Charlottesville

Antifa has caused more chaos and destruction across the country over the last year than any “white nationalist” ever could. #Charlottesville

That, my friends, is the double standard I cannot STAND. I can sit here all day long– and I have– and continue to condemn white nationalists, but at the end of the day, the left will continue to claim the moral high ground.
