Bravo Zulu, mainemom.

Bravo Zulu, mainemom.

I wonder if we can get direction on how often we have to publish our individual updates and repeats of those we denounce. Is once a week enough? Or monthly? Or semi-annually?

Mutt: what would make you happy? Is posting them on AMG OK, or should we mail them to you by registered mail?

New drone footage has emerged

New drone footage has emerged from the deadly alt-right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday 

SOURCE
________________________________________________________________

Posted for the headline and not the footage.

A few months ago, Ms. Andersen was running around screaming that we, Trump supporters in particular, were all alt-right. Matt has picked up where she left off and now the Daily Mail has reclassified the white supremacist rally as an alt-right rally.

How did 'no evidence of association' come to mean 'implicit association'? I never saw an announcement for the rally. I don't know the secret handshake and I don't know where the clubhouse is.

Matt. Why do screwballs like you create demons to torment yourselves? I'm with mainemom. I celebrate Matt the individual and not Matt the screwball.

The Jets and the Sharks didn't come together to dance. The playbill deceived you. It was a rumble and Trump got it right 2 days ago. But I'm happy a_c is beginning to feel better.

FYI I don't believe I was on

FYI I don't believe I was on AMG when the BLM violence happened, but yeah I guarantee I would have laid into it as well.

But... as much as you guys would like to steer this ship into BLM waters, this isn't about BLM, it's about Neo-Nazis.

And, why would Trump take so long in denouncing Neo Nazis when it's literally a political layup? The only possible answers are:
1) he's politically inept
2) he's blowing the Neo Nazi dog whistle, essentially saying, "hey guys, I'm on your side but I can't say it publicly"

Given that he never denounced David Duke (claiming ignorance, which is downright insulting to our intelligence), it sounds like 2 - either for himself or some advisor like Bannon, don't know.

It's not my job to defend anyone but myself or my family, and I don' t have to jump in every time someone on the internet is wrong, but sometimes an error is worth correcting.
a_c said Trump never disavowed David Duke.
From CNN March 3, 2016:
Washington (CNN) Donald Trump issued a crystal clear disavowal Thursday of former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke after stumbling last weekend over a question about the hate group leader on CNN.
"David Duke is a bad person, who I disavowed on numerous occasions over the years," Trump said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."
"I disavowed him. I disavowed the KKK," Trump added. "Do you want me to do it again for the 12th time? I disavowed him in the past, I disavow him now."

I found this account of the events in Charlottesville worth reading, from Buzzfeed.

Here’s What Really Happened In Charlottesville

Before I read this, my impression was the Nazis (truly deplorable) hoped to provoke a fight, and some of the "direct action" counter-protestors hoped to provoke a fight. After reading it I conclude that both got what they wanted. Trolls trolling trolls. Throw in a terrorist imitator, now a terrorist himself, and a young woman is dead.

The military-style presence in the crowd disavowed the Nazis but hoped to keep the peace.
Weird, huh?

Meanwhile Obama STILL hasn't disavowed Al Sharpton who incited the racist torching of Freddies Fashion Mart that claimed 7 victims. In fact he invited Sharpton to the white house numerous times. Yet Trump has to disavow David Duke, whom he has never met, 3 times a day. If it weren't for double standards the left would have no stamdards.

"@Matt: are you surprised?

"@Matt: are you surprised? Nobody here has condemned the Neo Nazis either, at least without trying to use it to take a swipe at BLM."

Why are we under any more obligation to condemn neo nazis than you are to condemn "antifas" or the BLM groups that march around chanting "pigs in a blanket, fry them like bacon" (while being protected by those same police)? Matt actually supports leftists who go in armed and looking for trouble!

"If Trump's supporters don't do it, then it's no surprise that he won't do it either. "

I have nothing to do with white supremacists or neonazis, so why am I under any obligation to denounce people I have no association with? Just because you find it expedient to lie about virtually everyone who posts on AMG, and all conservatives and Trump supporters puts me under no pressure to deny your lies or offer apologies for things I do not do.

That would certainly be a

That would certainly be a part answer to the cops sitting on their hands, the same way BTW, as when then Soros supported thugs showed up at Trump rallies during the campaign. This was, as were the rent-a thug appearances during the campaign, a put up job predicated on Alinskyite intimidation, and the furtherance of the left's Goebbels theory of the truth. Anarchy and intimidation is alive and well in politics today-constitutional law not so much. Beating up an old lady for wearing a Trump hat is "democracy"?

BTW, I think it is more than disgusting that political groups are using what was an American tragedy, the Civil War, as nothing more than a tool for political manipulation and propaganda. Was it more devastating to have lost a husband or son if he had a blue or gray uniform? If you were to ask MOST of the rioting morons much of anything about the war you'd most likely get a blank stare followed by some profanity or attack. Further, isn't it interesting that the BLM types now speak of white genocide? Gratitude followed by utter ignorance of demographics make for an interesting stew if you have the mentality of a gnat I suppose.

BTW I know how you guys feel when Obama can't say, "radical islamic terrorism", it's the same exact feeling when Trump refuses to explicitly condemn "Neo Nazi terrorism".

Sorry pal, you are either misinformed, lying, or delusional.
You are delusional. More likely lying…… with zero credibility…..again.
Get your shit together.

1991
CNN’s Larry King: “Did the David Duke thing bother you? Fifty-five percent of the whites in Louisiana voted for him.”
Trump: “I hate seeing what it represents, but I guess it just shows there’s a lot of hostility in this country. There’s a tremendous amount of hostility in the United States.”
King: “Anger?”
Trump: “It’s anger. I mean, that’s an anger vote. People are angry about what’s happened. People are angry about the jobs. If you look at Louisiana, they’re really in deep trouble. When you talk about the East Coast, it’s not the East Coast. It’s the East Coast, the middle coast, the West Coast…”

2000
“The Reform Party now includes a Klansman, Mr. Duke, a neo-Nazi, Mr. [Patrick] Buchanan, and a communist, Ms. [Lenora] Fulani. This is not company I wish to keep.”
— Trump, in a statement saying he will not accept the Reform Party nomination for president, Feb. 13, 2000

— Trump, in a statement saying he will not accept the Reform Party nomination for president, Feb. 13, 2000
NBC’s Matt Lauer: “When you say the [Reform] party is self-destructing, what do you see as the biggest problem with the Reform Party right now?”
Trump: “Well, you’ve got David Duke just joined — a bigot, a racist, a problem. I mean, this is not exactly the people you want in your party.”

2015
Bloomberg’s John Heilemann: “How do you feel about the David Duke quasi-endorsement?”
Trump: “I don’t need his endorsement; I certainly wouldn’t want his endorsement. I don’t need anyone’s endorsement.”
Heilemann: “Would you repudiate David Duke?”
Trump: “Sure, I would do that, if it made you feel better. I don’t know anything about him. Somebody told me yesterday, whoever he is, he did endorse me. Actually I don’t think it was an endorsement. He said I was absolutely the best of all of the candidates.”

— Interview with NBC’s “Today Show,” Feb. 29

ABC News’s George Stephanopoulos: “So, are you prepared right now to make a clear and unequivocal statement renouncing the support of all white supremacists?”
Trump: “Of course, I am. I mean, there’s nobody that’s done so much for equality as I have. You take a look at Palm Beach, Florida, I built the Mar-a-Lago Club, totally open to everybody; a club that frankly set a new standard in clubs and a new standard in Palm Beach and I’ve gotten great credit for it. That is totally open to everybody. So, of course, I am.”

–exchange on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” March 1
Trump: “We had a news conference and they asked me the exact same question. I said I disavow. Now, right after the program that we’re talking about — and I thought it was clear, but you know, we’re talking about groups, groups, groups. I do have to know the name of the group because, who knows? I mean, they have to give me the name of the group. But right after, when I reviewed it, I put out a tweet and I put out on Facebook that I totally disavow. Now everybody knew I did that but the press refused to look at that. It was right after. And I disavowed then; I disavowed today on ABC with George Stephanopoulos, I disavowed again. I mean, how many times are you supposed to disavow? But I disavow and hopefully it’s the final time I have to do it. But if you look at Facebook and if you look at Twitter, right after the show I put out a statement because I want everybody to be sure.”

And, why would Trump take so long in denouncing Neo Nazis when it's literally a political layup?

Lefty politicians, including Obummer, and her Royal Hinieness REFUSED to denounce BLM, and the BLM inspired violence. Violence that led to the cold-blooded murder of about a dozen police officers.

Trump, by letting the pot simmer, and then denouncing, defused the bomb, without knee-jerk virtue signaling.

Well, Trump is politically inept. He's only been doing for a couple of years.

Most Democrats, on the other hand, by promoting violent rhetoric leading to murder, can be classified as truly evil.

I'm sure eventually the left will get around to renaming all of the stuff in West Virginia named after Grand Wizard Byrd...and then may move on to destroying all traces of FDR who did imprison those innocent Japanese Americans..........We just have to be patient and wait for the even handedness to set in.......

437 blacks killed in Chi this year and amg has zero posts?. 3 whites get off’ed and it goes viral. WTF?

….don’t you white folk care about black lives…don’t they matter? Are you not aware of BLM?

Anonymous coward does what he does best... embarrass this fine blog with his stupidity…..he thinks white boy Trump is responsible. Is that dumb or what?

So matty, when you say: “BLM came into existence for a reason.’ We get that. The reason had nothing to do with blacks having value…..See if you can process this question:

Black Lives Matter to whom? Al sharpton? Jesse Jackson? Jeramiah ….”god damn America”…. Wright. Obama’s spiritual advisor for 2 decades?
