    I used to live in C’Ville, and live not too far away from it now. A terrible couple of days for an otherwise really good place to live.

    Trump’s response was despicable. He’s even being called out for it by Republican senators like Corey Gardner and Rubio.

    He condemned “many sides” for their hate and bigotry. He refuses to name the perpetrators, the white nationalists who marched on the town and one who killed a protestor. He can’t, really, of course. He won the presidency because of them. He won because of the white supremacist, racist, bigoted vote, and he has several white nationalists in his administration, like Gorka, Miller and Bannon.

    But he should. He should also condemn the political right. The march was tagged as “unite the right,” and it’s time to call the political right out for this. Neo-nazis, neo-fascists, the KKK, white supremacy in general — they all proudly claim the political right as their home. Too many people left of center shy away from coming out and saying these are right-wingers, and they shouldn’t.

    The political right never returns the favor when it condemns the left. It’s never been afraid of tagging the left for people like Stalin. Why should the left shy away from telling the truth about nazis and fascists, neo and otherwise, identifying with the political right? And they always have.
