Dems risk culture war fight in Charlottesville response

There are 80 comments on the The Daily News-Record story from Aug 18, 2017, titled Dems risk culture war fight in Charlottesville response. In it, The Daily News-Record reports that:

President Donald Trump's widely criticized response to white supremacist violence in Virginia has left Democrats in a quandary: how to seize the moral high ground without getting sucked into a politically perilous culture war. Democrats have denounced Trump for blaming "both sides" for deadly protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, and, more recently, for defending Confederate monuments.

TRUMP was 100% correct in blaming BOTH Sides for the violence.

Yes, Fields is a murderer, a far right loser...that goes without saying. But, if the counter protesters were not violent, it is possible that Fields would have just drove home.

That goes for the two troopers killed in the helicopter crash who were in the air because of the chaos on the ground.

Both the Alt-Right and the Alt-Left need to be called-out for there crazy behavior.

I'm here in Charlottesville, and I guess people farther away haven't heard this was all staged by our Israeli-controlled government. Videos on line show the Charlottesville police cheering the stunt driver as he drove the car back into the municipal parking garage!

It's not a left or right hoax, it's a dirty government hoax designed to divide us so we don't see their crimes----fake terrorism.

Clue: Trillion dollar potential of autonomous car software industry is being pushed by staging car ramming worldwide. It's more criminal than most people care to see---it's not all just "black and white".

Quite a story,,,,but with 3 people dead I would say it was hardly fake.

And, with what happened in Barcelona a few days ago, sadly terrorism is very, very real.

Still, thanks for that input, I won't rule anything out yet.

Yes, A pretty wild conspiracy theory. It is almost as CRAZY as the one put forward by the neo- McCarthyites, that Russia influenced the outcome of the TRUMP-Hillary Presidential Race.

Nevertheless, if someone puts a gun to your head and demands that you say 2 + 2 = 5, it seems silly not to agree AND it is the Main-Stream Media, the mouthpiece of the UBER 1%, who has that gun.

The lunatic fringe Democrat false narratives continue to reap rotten fruit. The rabid Communists and anarchists they've influenced are now desecrating soldier's graves in Memphis, TN.

First, they send their goons to cause violence in Charlottsville. Then, they blame it on people there opposing the tearing down of historical monuments. Avoiding the plurality of Democrats from Presidents to Senators to Legislators who've dominated racist organizations and actions in the U.S. since the Civil War, they then shift blame to accuse those opposing the destruction of scholarship and intellectual worth... all to cover their own complicity and duplicity. Their attempts to identify all those opposed to their radicalism as being part of the minor and insignificant numbers of radical fringe groups amongst their opponents will fail. The Maoist attempts of the radical Left to impose a cultural revolution type tyranny in America won't wash.

Any group of people who wants to recruit or march in places they never grew up in or worked to build don't care about tearing those places apart. I blame those who issued permits without restrictions. When someone has a party at a city park or public pool safety regulations have to be followed.

Any group or organizer who brings his or her supporters or militia into other people's towns while armed with loaded guns, while carrying shields, torches. pepper spray know full well they have come to do harm to someone. The problem is once the news gets out the curious, the young, the outraged older ones wearing flipflops, cargo shorts and tank tops just come to see for themselves how it was possible Nazis were marching down their streets. We fought a world war with them but like the Confederate flag, the Nazi flag is allowed to fly on our soil our Southern veterans fought to protect. Do we put up statues to the Nazis who helped us fry the Japanese? Where do our real loyalties lie?

Freedom of Speech doesn't guarantee anyone the right to disturb the peace in anyone's town. There's the internet and YouTube for hate speech and racist rants or lectures. Tax payers shouldn't have to foot the bill, parents shouldn't have to pay the cruelest price because extremists are too cowardly to fight to the death in the desert where the only people they'll hurt is each other.

The Supreme Court was wrong. Hate speech is not Free Speech. It's inciting people to riot, to kill. It's what our enemies do to their own to force them into their vigilante armies and strap on bombs and mow people down with trucks and cars. This is why no state or town should allow armed mobs anywhere near unarmed citizens. Free Speech never required a gun or club to be heard. This is the behavior of thugs, terrorists. They breed fear and paranoia until hatred and violence is what their self created enemy feeds them the rage and rejection they expected. Meanwhile some of your precious children are being chewed up by that vicious mob of hate and anger. Which is more important to you? Defending bronze and marble statues of dead officers, or defending living officers you went to school with, neighbors just as confused and upset as you are? Your family and friends will be there after the MOB moves on to digest the next town. The question is will you be able to face your neighbors, your kids the day after?

The Supreme Court should indeed alter the current understanding of supporting free speech rights. States and cities should have the right to impose guidelines keeping hate groups separate. So-called "counter-protesters" should have the right to protest, but separated by a reasonable time-frame. This would keep the paid Democrat radicals and anarchists from arriving with clubs, weapons and urine to impose violence as they did in Charlottesville. At the same time, their protest voice could be heard and the rules would keep any radical elements opposed to them from being physically present at their demonstrations. All of them could still be required to have permits, as those protesting destroying American history legally acquired. This type constraint would disallow the conspiratorial violence of the Left and still allow freedom of expression and assembly, which the Leftist Democrats seem intent to destroy.

The Democrat Mayor, and the Democrat Governor wanted a little blood, just enough to "blame Trump." The told the police to stand down. Stand down. How stupid did they have to be? McCauliff is a half wit, I don't know about the Mayor.

Yes. You are right. The violent Democrat party and their pals, the Republican political establishment both hate President Trump. They see him as a threat because he has promised to provide political representation to the nation's disposed majority.

The Democrats, and RINOs have to be on drugs, or something. Do they really believe the American people will elect a President, and then stand by, and let a bunch of drunks, and druggies, and a braindead Senator obstruct his every move? No, we won't take up arms, but we will swarm the polling places next year, and vote these people out of office. They have to be a special kind of stupid.

Democrats are destroying their political party. Why do you think President Trump, a man who never held political office, was elected? He was elected to show Democrat, and RINO Republicans where the power really is in a Representative Republic. It is with the American voter. The same people will vote the bad guys out again in 2018, and 2020.
