President-elect Donald Trump on Tuesday condemned an alt-right conference in Washington over the weekend where some members performed a Hitler salute and yelled "Hail Trump!" after a speech about white nationalism.

"I condemn them. I disavow, and I condemn," Trump said in a New York Times interview in New York, according to a reporter's Twitter post.

If he were sincerely against the Nazis celebrating him he ought to be able to oppose them at least as strongly as he has the that gold star family or Rosie O'Donnell.

Gee, that was an extensive story.

He's going to have to do better than eight words. I'm not saying he's a Nazi, but damn, he let a lot go from such folks during the campaign, and he suborned race-based anger (among other negative plays), at the very least.

"I'm not saying he's a Nazi"

Most of the worst Nazis were conscience-less opportunists with a kleptomanic streak.

So Donald has potential.

Too late and too little. He owns the racists uprising. He courted them all election cycle.

What a blistering condemnation by Trump of the alt-right racists whose support he cultivated throughout the campaign, and whose leader Stephen Bannon will be one of Trump's top officials in the White House.

Pay no attention to the fact that his condemnation is one-one hundredth as strong as his anger after a beauty queen said he called her Miss Piggy.

He really condemns these emboldened racist and anti-Semitic supporters. Those eight words prove it.

No, really.

Still waiting on Obama to disavow the New Black Panthers. Still waiting for Obama to condemn anti Trump violence.

Rcade,

I don't like Bannon but he's not an alt right racist.

I don't like Bannon but he's not an alt right racist.

Because you say so?

Or because you're ignoring all the evidence of him being and alt right white supremacist?

"I condemn them. I disavow, and I condemn," Trump said in a New York Times interview

Yea.

But.

If he's not up at 3 AM tweeting about.

He doesn't really care.

At least he said what he was expected to.

I don't like Bannon but he's not an alt right racist.

Bannon called Breitbart News "the platform for the alt-right." His site openly courts the people who were raising their arm and chanting "heil victory" at that meeting last week and runs racist anti-black, anti-Hispanic and anti-Muslim stories all the time.

Former Breitbart editor Ben Shapiro had this to say about him: "Andrew Breitbart despised racism. Truly despised it. With Bannon embracing Trump, all that changed. Now Breitbart has become the alt-right go-to website, with [Milo] Yiannopoulos pushing white ethno-nationalism as a legitimate response to political correctness, and the comment section turning into a cesspool for white supremacist mememakers."

Get your head out of the sand.

If he's not up at 3 AM tweeting about [it]... he doesn't really care.

That's what my wife said last night, considering the people who need to hear it most, as opposed to those who want to hear it most, already don't read or disregard most of the MSM.

If he don't tweet, the report's deceit.

Exactly.

Great slogan. :)

He only did that because it's politically correct.

"In 11 hours of speeches and panel discussions in a federal building named after Ronald Reagan a few blocks from the White House, a succession of speakers had laid out a harsh vision for the future, but had denounced violence and said that Hispanic citizens and black Americans had nothing to fear. Earlier in the day, Mr. Spencer himself had urged the group to start acting less like an underground organization and more like the establishment.

But now his tone changed as he began to tell the audience of more than 200 people, mostly young men, what they had been waiting to hear. He railed against Jews and, with a smile, quoted Nazi propaganda in the original German. America, he said, belonged to white people, whom he called the "children of the sun," a race of conquerors and creators who had been marginalized but now, in the era of President-elect Donald J. Trump, were "awakening to their own identity."

As he finished, several audience members had their arms outstretched in a Nazi salute. Mr. Spencer called out: "Hail Trump! Hail our people!" and then, "Hail victory!" -- the English translation of the Nazi exhortation "Sieg Heil!" The room shouted back."
