President Trump Condemns Today's Racial Violence In Charlottesville, Virginia

Reuters: At least one dead as white nationalists ignite Virginia clashes

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (Reuters) - At least one person died and 30 were injured in a day of clashes between white nationalists and counter-protesters in Virginia on Saturday, with the state's governor blaming the neo-Nazis for sparking the violence and demanding that they go home.

Two people also died when a Virginia State Police helicopter crashed near the violence in Charlottesville, federal officials said.

It was not clear if the crash was related to the outbreak of clashes in the Southern college town, where protesters fought hundreds of white supremacists trying to halt the planned removal of a Confederate statue from a park.

Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, a Democrat, declared an emergency and halted a white nationalist rally, while President Donald Trump condemned the violence.

WNU Editor: A sad and ugly part of America history played out today .... and here is an easy prediction .... many individuals and groups are going to use today's violence to push their political agendas, and the media is going to play along.

Today was a national embarrassment. Stupid, tragic and totally avoidable.

dear Vic
"and the media is going to play along. "
Not sure what you mean. The media's role is to report, with, on opinion or editorial pages a position taken and as such in as place that the reader knows is not news but an opion. How then does the media play along other than reporting what remains news and not opinion?

In the real world people are focused on other things, and there are far more important stories (IMHO) out there than this one. But here is an easy prediction .... what happened today is going to be a covered non-stop by the media for the next few days .... it is too juicy to not avoid, and each network/pundit/blogger/etc. will be using this story to push their own political agenda. I am already seeing this play-out tonight on the late-evening news, I can only imagine what they are going to say on the Sunday morning talks shows.

RussInSoCal is right when he says that "Today was a national embarrassment. Stupid, tragic and totally avoidable". But the media/political class are not going to leave it at that .... they are going to blame others to score a political point or two .... it is just who they are.

I expect some in Antifa to get further radicalized due to this event and become full blown terrorists.

I expect the car driver to get caught and prosecuted (& right fully so).

I expectant anti-anti-protesters to get a bad rap. I expect antifa to be given a pass although Antifa assaults more people than the other way around.

I am not sure if there will be more resistance to Antifa.

the money trail needs to be followed. Is there someone like Creamer, who pays for these actions. the money needs to be followed and the people do to. If a person shows up to protests in NYC and California and does so several times a year, it is right to ask if they have a job or who is paying them to protest.

Death to Canadia!

Why say that. There is Canada and then there is Cana-duh. When you have someone incoherently posting links to others twit feeds, you know they belong to the latter group.

"Being a Jewish fella, I don't hold much brief for white supremacists and neo-Nazis.
But we could start with the History Channel (, which informs us that the KKK, at its height in the 1920s, had four million members.  Since the population then was just over one hundred million, that's close to four percent of the country
By the 1990s, however, the same source tells us the Klan was down to a paltry 6,000-10,000 people creeps nationwide
So for the sake of argument, let's say there are as many as 100,000 white supremacists in America today

puts the percentage of  white supremacists in the U.S. at a puny 0.03%. 

For the next week or two -- assuming we're not at war with North Korea -- we will hear non-stop geschreiing from our media about what a racist nation we are, how we have to come together, rend our shirts, investigate this and that and endlessly discuss how bad we are until we're finally forgiven at some undetermined point in an ever vanishing future that seems never to arrive." - Roger L. Simon

In the meantime Guardian readers will have their panties in a twist running around like there is a full moon.

By comparison the Nation of Islam has 50,000 racist adherents.

"Its official newspaper is The Final Call. In 2007, the core membership was estimated to be between 20,000 and 50,000" - Wiki

There have been estimates of up to 100,000

We have a far larger problem with BIPOC racists than the other way around. Both are problems, but BIPOC racism is 1 or 2 orders of magnitude larger.

How many people does the Nation of Islam kill? Just what do you think they do? I blame it all on CPAs! follow the books!

Aizino Smith said...


1) Nation of Islam mosque killing of NYPD cop still a mystery, 37 years later

2) Zebra murders
Remembering a Racist, Black Muslim Murder Spree

3) The membership of sniper suspect John Muhammad in the Nation of Islam has made the background and nature of this group into a national issue of concern. Muhammad changed his name from John Allen Williams after he converted to Islam. At first, Nation of Islam officials declined comment. Later, leader Louis Farrakhan admitted Muhammad was a member.

Apparently, FL does not like to keep both scores just one.

Get out of your comfort zone, grow, think a little

fred lapides said...

Is it possible for you to offer an arguement without being snarky, viscious, girly boyish?

Anyone can go far back into the past and find...oh yes, Malcoml X was assassinated by Black Muslims, we believe...
and yes, blacks do kill. And yes, so too white crazies...and yes, we exterminated the vast majority of native Americans systematically, and yes, mostly done by great generals of the Civil War...and so on and on
enjoy the day...give things a rest...look at the comics

Aizino Smith said...

So I present Fast Freddy (He's fast & loose with the truth.) of Nation of Islam murders that he demanded proof of and he goes off on a tangent.

What else can be expected of a liberal/Leftist?

Aizino Smith said...

Fast Freddy,

I was talking more recent than Malcolm X by a decade.

I would have more examples, but it would take longer and the news media have closed ranks and they often do not report race or affiliation early or often unless the suspect is white.

If Native Americans were systematically exterminated. It would have taken much less than a 100 years. But nice of you to muddy the waters.

"and yes, blacks do kill. And yes, so too white crazies.."
It is the relative rate of crimes. Crimes per capita Don't tell me there is 1 white murderer and 9 black ones and that is all the same statistically.

You have to study long and herd to get where you as far as being blinkered.

Fast Freddy,

Roger L. Simon is a Jew. He use to be a communist. Then he grew up.

It is not too late Fred. You have 0 to 8 years to do the same.

Why are you liberals so violent?

Here is some liberal threatening to hang hundreds of people.

Crimes against Humanity (The trials 2029) - EV World

6 days ago - Hypothetical Climate Crimes trials projected to held in the year 2029 as a stark warning to humanity we do not want to let things go until we ...


The people at evworld know that they have crossed the line. So they erased the blog and rerouted the internet requests to see it.

Yeppers, liberals are h_-_-_-_l.

There are nuts, in all regions, trades, politics..
some are truly off the wall...some may be CPAs, others, dishwashers at fast food places, still others bus drivers...get over the Our side versus the rest of humanity...take a rest, dear heart, you are both stressing yourself and overreaching

Aizino Smith said...

He is on your side and he very publically called for killing hundreds.

fred lapides said...

how much time do you spend on google to post some nonsense?
sure. there are nuts that are lefties...way out ones, ie, Stalinists, Maoists...but that said, were you not so blinded by your biases you would find as many on the right of center...try google for that on this lovely Sunday..we see your name and we know in advance the forthcoming diatribe

Aizino Smith said...

Sorry but you own this.

Gilkison has was more explicit/specific than other good liberals

- He gave a number of people. More like he gave a lower bound on the people he wants killed.

- He gave a timetable.

The Left/Liberals have been saying they want AGW deniers locked up or dead for 2 or 3 years now.

AGW alarmists fall solely on the liberals/The Left/the Democrat Party.

I did not have to spend any time looking up Gilikison. Good Liberal Gilkison's death threats are making the rounds of various news organizations the last few days.

Just because the news you choose to consume did not cover it, does not mean it does not happen.

Conservatives racists and religious extremists are the only who enjoy themselves in mass killing act of terrorism.

They love to spread hate, fear and violence, and to provoke the others on the same line. Their speech are full of that shit.

Dear A S
More have been killed by right wing nuts in our nation than by terrorist s. now google and you will of course change the topic and say some nasty things about me...look to yourself: I may be left of this or that one but I have no need to defend my views and do not need you to correct me. I have served my nation twice. My son has served our nation. Another son served in go forth and sin no more

Aizino Smith said...

Sorry Fred,

But we who are not socialists or communists do not claim the KKK or the neo-Nazis

Just because Adorno and Herbert Marcuse from the Frankfurt School came to America and preached lies do not make the neo-Nazis kin to Republicans.

We all know that the KKK is the military wing of the Democrat party and that they murdered many Republicans, black & white, during Reconstruction and afterwards. You have much to atone for. I suggest wear sackcloth, put ashes in hair and gnash your teeth.

Maybe you missed it by the acronym for NATSI has the word socialism in it. No doubt if you were in Germany in WW2 you would have been a 'mischling' or 'beefsteak' fighting for the NATSI. 70% of the SA were communists.
