Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, August 12, 2017

As the official start of the "Unite the Right" rally kicked off in Charlottesville, Virginia, former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke said the gathering of white supremacists, neo-Nazis and far-right individuals pointed to a future fulfillment of President Donald Trump's "promises." "This represents a turning point for the people of this country," said Duke in video uploaded to Twitter by Indianapolis Star photojournalist Mykal McEldowney. "We are determined to take our country back. We are going to fulfill the promises of Donald Trump. That's what we believed in, that's why we voted for Donald Trump. Because he said he's going to take our country back. That's what we gotta do."

Throughout candidate Trump's campaign, I had said on multiple occasions that his over-the-top rhetoric would awaken a monster that he will not be able to control....

BLM vs Neo nazis, and the right wingers here attack the BLM people.

Funny, i don't see cops shooting white supremacists every single day, but "angry liberals" so it's all a wash, right?

You're insane.

White racists march with torches on an American campus, liberals protest against these racists and you're having trouble figuring out which side to root for.

I was working in and out of Harvey '76, West Bank New Orleans when Ol'Dave had a little book store over in Gretna. Meet the SOB at the urging of some of my fellow workers. He was dangerous then, now he is just a media whore. I can guarantee he got paid to speak. The one thing I remember about him was his dead eyes. Like a shark, no expression. I really don't know what the Alt right is, except they like to whip butt on Antifa. Some Kluckers, A few Nazis, some skin heads, ABs disguised as white nationalist. I say issue each side M16s and let them kill each other. Antifa and BLM are hate groups just like the KKK, except the KKK usually pay their own way, Antifa uses their daddy's credit card. BTW the real blood shed was committed by a single individual. Let's let the police and courts take care of his sorry butt. Considering that SC prisons are about 80% black, he does not have much of a future.

BLM is a hate group? Idiots.

Why won't the president say the words "domestic right-wing terrorism?"

Boaz defending nazis. I love it.

Just goes to show the power of political party piety on the weak mind.

This is as low as I've seen Boaz sink. I started reading the DR in 2005.

Boaz, defending ------ who think he's sub human and should either be in chains picking cotton or should go back to Africa. Political tribalism is getting the best of him, too bad really.

Merely refusing David Dukes endorsement is not enough. Trump must stop working to advance policies that match the goals and desires of the KKK.

Antifa and BLM are the ugly side of the left. White nationalist, the KKK, Nazis and the ABs are the ugly side of the right. Put some damn prospective in to this manure storm. The so called "Unite the Right" rally only drew between 300 to 400 attendees with months of promotion. About the same number of the brain dead left showed up for the counter protest. I can remember within the last three years the TEA party drew over 300,000 om the Washington Mall. Even the Occupy freaks could draw more. These loosers deserve each other. As far as the statue of R E Lee, I say move it to one of the many Confederate cemeteries. He lead them to where they lay.

Stop with the fantasy that BLM is something ugly.

Yeah, gotta hate those Antifa and BLM people for hating racism, etc... Seriously, to pretend they are akin to the Alt-Right groups is both ridiculous and childish.

#22 | Posted by Sycophant, nope- BLM is primarily an anti-cop mob funded by Soros. Remember the lie "hands up, don't shoot" based on the myth of the 'gentile giant". Maybe their marching chants might stir some memory, "Pigs on a blanket, fry'em like bacon" or "What do we want? Dead cops!, When do we want? Now!" Ask the Dallas PD if they are serious.

I thought it was worth highlighting the one sensible thing you said, Docnjo.

comparing nazis and the kkk to blm is incredibly stupid, baseless, and doesn't even come close to sticking to any sort of empiracle test.

as far as antifa... an unorganized group of college kids and rando cells of hippie friends world wide with nothing more in common than a hashtag and loose political agendas also doesn't compare to organized groups of white supremacists.

especially groups that have existed for decades to over a century.

#27 | Posted by IndianaJones The funding by Soros' Open Society fund for BLM is well documented, so much for tin foil hats.
