Never in my lifetime did I think we’d live through this open white supremacy manifestation and open hatred … with the succinct approval of the trash in the White House!

Then there were the republican pundits trying to equate “Black Lives Matter” protests with the racists’ protests of today when there is no moral equivalency. The one group has been fighting against hate while the other has been promoting intolerance.
The Virginia Governor Terry McAuliff had to announce a “state of emergency” to end the violence which erupted between the racists at the rally and the counter-protesters.
