Not exactly much difference between that and an ISIS attack, aside from religious idiology.

So in Trump's speech he blamed 'many sides', avoided mentioning the car attack, injuries, death and state of emergency, didn't specifically condemn the actual nazis, talked about record employment numbers, said he would study the situation, told everyone to love each other, swiftly moved on to talking about veterans, cracked some jokes, ignored press questions about his white nationalist supporters, and forgot he was there to sign something.

Apart from that it was a masterful performance in the art of diplomacy and calming the situation.

Considering somebody has just driven a car into people like in that cesspit out-of-control hellhole otherwise known as Europe, it was a heck of a speech.

He literally refuses to condemn Nazis. I mean, people doing Hitler salutes and carrying Nazi flags. And he wouldn't condemn them. The US President.

This is just strawberry floating...weird. Tragically, heartbreakingly weird.

Despite a huge death/injury toll indicating some speed, and the video - it's already becoming a 'fact'it wasn't malicious and the driver was scared/lost control, or was hit by a protestors rock and swerved.

He could have blacked out at the wheel, the jolt of the crash into the back of the other car then made his hand on the gear stick pull backwards, sending the car into reverse. The driver then thankfully woke up and regained control of the vehicle.

Why would Trump condemn his own supporters? This is David Duke all over again.

It's this aspect I can't quite fathom. The aftermath where people will talk themselves into believing this isn't really terrorism and handwave away the concerns of minority groups with disarming statements like 'All Lives Matter'.

Maybe these events will be the wake up call to American society that appeasement really is no longer acceptable. I hope it might be.

People are doxxing the driver of the car, using the license plate. :dread:

People got doxxed because they a) expressed an opinion about a video game b) were women. I'm not saying doxxing is good, but I've seen worse excuses to employ it.

Colleague of mine picked the right time to spend 3 weeks in America then... :lol: :slol: :dread:

Seriously though, what in the actual strawberry float? Apparently these are the actions of repressed white men? What a horrible time to be alive when the President won't even condemn it properly because he knows they are the people who got him into power...

Business Insider article but has some choice quotes.: Neo-nazis and white supremacists are celebrating Trump's remarks about the Charlottesville riots

S: Neither was the last one. It was a robbery. M: Really? S: Yeah. She stole my heart. And my crown. (❍ᴥ❍ʋ)

Unless the owner of the license plate wasn't the one driving the car...
