Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, December 15, 2017

Susan Bro -- the mother of Heather Heyer, 32, who was killed in Charlottesville, VA by a white supremacist -- told The Daily Beast that she has been forced to conceal her daughter's grave site because of ongoing violent threats against her and her family. Heyer's ashes, Bro said, are in an undisclosed, unmarked location that is "completely protected" from the public. The grieving mother said she had to take that step because threats and harassment from the violent right have not stopped since the day 20-year-old James Alex Fields, Jr. plowed his car into a crowd of anti-racist protesters, killing Heyer and injuring 19 others. "It's a symptom of hate in society that you should have to protect your child's grave, for Pete's sake," said Bro to Tim Teeman. "So, I'm protecting my child now." Teeman wrote that Bro blames President Donald Trump in part for her daughter's death because of the president's refusal to disavow right-wing extremists and his tacit approval of white supremacy.

These must be some of the good people on the Nazi side.

Trump's White Supremacist supporters take "Blame the Victim" beyond once unimaginable heights.

Trump told them they are "very fine people" in that murderous mob.

Only the finest Trump voters desecrate graves

If you lefties would just talk to them about not desecrating graves and try to find common ground with a group of people who are all about ethnic cleansing we would all be better off.

Whatever you do, if you see some Nazis desecrating graves DO NOT confront them. That will make you just as bad as they are...

Typical Trump voters. The Nazi's making threats need to be locked up.

Just read a link from a Meyer piece. Very interesting I haven't corroborated the numbers personally and but it is from the Center for Investigative Reporting:

Charlottesville underscores how homegrown hate is going unchecked

Anyone in the mood for something a bit more hopeful?

Yap.

It's **** the, uh, "centrists" here like to say.

Unfortunately they mean exactly what they say.

In their opinion Nazis need to be reasoned with. We all need to listen to then and respect their point of view.

Anyone who won't hold hands with a Nazi is a Nazi who should die and go to hell.

Figure that one out..
