Charlottesville: "A reminder of how divided this nation has become since Barack Obama assumed the presidency."

 Via John


Today's protest march in Charlottesville, VA,  which tragically ended in the death of one person and the injury of many others is a reminder of how divided this nation has become since Barack Obama assumed the presidency. 

Just as Americans' average life expectancy has fallen for the first time ever - since the advent of Obamacare, so has civil discourse and tolerance. Today's events were a predictable outcome of dividing people by their skin color in order to stir up hate amongst people of color and then harvest harvest their votes every election.

Today, Donald Trump decried the tragedy of a lost life and spoke out strongly against the Charlottesville violence and also called for healing. Immediately, his leftist critics said he didn't go far enough in condemning the "white nationalists'' who marched there. 


With the left, it's always political. They and the alleged "media" kept their mouths shut when Obama spoke out against the shooting of 11 police officers (five dead) at a Black Lives Matter protest in Dallas barely more than a year ago.


While Obama decried the violence at that time, in terms similar to Trump's today, he actually went on to 'justify' the  much greater carnage by sympathizing with the plight of the killers.

People....wake up; you are being manipulated by fake news outlets and the DC establishment who lives high on the hog at your expense while they mock you in private. They do not care about the things they claim to care about and have no problem stirring the pie and creating hatred and violence whenever it suits their political purposes.  Reject the Kool-Ade.  Think.

What follows are the Obama comments that were never challenged by "his" compliant media or even wimpy Republican politicians who, unlike Democrats, go along to get along. They need to go, too.

  1. It sounds like it could have been by a Republican.

    James Alex Fields Jr. sounds like the criminal, not the other guy. Fields claims he was scared by people hitting his car, so he hit the gas. It's not yet certain, but that's how things appear.

    Unrelated: there was a helicopter crash that killed two people. It had been monitoring the events apparently.

    A lot of drama over removal of RE Lee statue...

    Oh, and a lady driving while yelling profanities at UniteTheRight banged into another car (not a bad wreck).

    2. Lol.

      Well, just to state the obvious, I'm somewhat insulted that RE Lee is perceived negatively today.

      A twitter rumour is that Fields was a Bernie supporter and tied to some Muslim group. I guess it doesn't matter too much.

    3. I guess it doesn't matter too much.

      Yes, since it will be blamed on the right regardless.

  2. ANTIFA , BLM and other Commie groups will go unmentioned, or just as righteously indignant "counter protestors". --Ron W

    1. Insane, considering Trump is in the WH.
