After the Unite the Right rally this weekend culminated in the death of one, President Trump condemned “all sides” and called for love and unity.
This was not good enough for the left, however, who urged president Trump to condemn white supremacists by name. A day later, he did just that.
Now today, President Trump wants to know why everyone is so silent on the violence caused by leftists at the event in Charlottesville.
“You had a group on one side and you had a group on the other, and they came at each other with clubs and it was vicious and it was horrible, and it was a horrible thing to watch. I think there’s blame on both sides.”
President Trump continued,
“What about the alt-left that came charging at the, as you say, the alt-right? Do they have any semblance of guilt?”
Trump also wanted to note that not all of the protesters at the rally were white supremacists or neo-nazis.
“Not all of those people were neo-nazis, believe me. Not all of those people were white supremacists, by any stretch. Those people were also there because they wanted to protest the taking down of the statue of Robert E. Lee.”
As we reported on yesterday, leftists in Charlottesville called for a violent communist revolution to “uproot this capitalist system,” which went entirely unreported by the mainstream media. Perhaps Trump’s speech is the first step in the right direction towards shining a light on the growth of radical communism.
