strawberry floating America. :fp:

It also amazes me they can so regularly have such ugly outbreaks of violence yet still be so patriotic about how great their country is.

Does the banana split even realise that he is the one who has enabled all of this?

I like how Sad! has now become a sitcom-esque catchphrase, or something you'd expect on a WWE T-Shirt.

The Mayor of Charlottesville blames Trump:
Donald Trump accused of inflaming racial tensions amid violent clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia

Donald Trump has been blamed for the violent clashes between white supremacists and anti-fascist groups in Charlottesville by the mayor of the Virginia town.

Michael Signer said he was disappointed the white nationalists had descended on his town and said responsibility lay with Mr Trump for inflaming racial prejudice during his presidential campaign last year.

Mr Signer said: "I'm not going to make any bones about it. I place the blame for a lot of what you're seeing in America today right at the doorstep of the White House and the people around the President."

The clashes broke out at a "Unite the Right" protest over the decision by the local government to remove a statue of the leading Confederate general, Robert E Lee, during the American Civil War.

I'd blame Trump too if America didn't already have such a disgusting history when it comes to issues of race.

Top rated comments on Breitbart on the matter...

We have black history MONTH. We have Hispanic history MONTH. We have parades with transvestites and men who have sex in their rectums. But white people (for whatever reason) want to have a parade, and the government and minorities go nuts! White genicide is alive and well in almost every country. We have rights too. I don't necessarily agree with a march, but seeing how poorly these people were treated makes me want to see white nationalist marches in EVERY AMERICAN AND EUROPEAN CITY!

UniteTheRight had a lawful permit for the rally.Their 1st and 9th amendment rights were violated.

This is what happened: The #UniteTheRight rally was planned months in advance, proper permits were sought and granted, and everything was going according to plan. Then, a few days before the rally, the city of Charlottesville rescinded the permit; there argument was based upon the "Hecklers Veto," they claimed that it would place "undo pressure" on the police, this is a clear violation of the 1s amendment.

So, the organizers went to federal court and won; a federal judge ordered that the rally must go on and the rally-goers Constitutional rights protected.

Then, the corrupt Dîndu mayor and the police department ordered the rally an "unlawful assembly," and threatened to arrest everybody.

Once again, 1st and 9th amendment rights were blatantly violated.

A predictably gooseberry fool response from Trump.

So they turn up en masse in Nazi kit and can't understand why people are objecting?

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.
