Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, August 07, 2018

When hundreds of white supremacists arrived in Charlottesville, Virginia, for a deadly "Unite the Right" protest last August, local authorities were unprepared for the violence that terrorized the city, largely standing back during bloody encounters between white supremacists and counterprotesters. One year later, we speak with investigative reporter A.C. Thompson on his work to track down and identify white supremacists from Charlottesville and other extremist rallies across the country. His investigation, "Documenting Hate: Charlottesville," premieres tonight at 10 p.m. Eastern on PBS.

Video proof that the white supremacists from 35 States were hell bent on sending their message through violence. The police were definitely on the white supremacists side, doing nothing throughout the protest violence. Unlike the anti-Nazis protestors, The supremacists brought clubs, including metal pipes, guns and of course that infamous car. Many of these supremacists have ties to the military and some are still working full time in the military. People like this are why natives want US Bases out of their country.

As usual Trump lied his way through the event by pretending there was violence on both sides. This was clearly not the case.

Donald Trump is an enabler for the Neo-Nazis and White Nationalists and is a disgrace to this country.

The videos tell a different story. There WAS violence from both sides.

Trump tried to imply there were nice Nazi's. THAT is clearly not the case. But we have to admit there was violence from both sides and violence is not the solution. But it is a difficult situation where one side WANTS violence and the other thinks that violence should be met with violence.

Gandhi showed us a different way. Too bad we are not interested. We are a violent nation. We got our start thru violence and we have learned to solve our problems with violence. And I fear we will continue down that path until someone or something stops us.

Careful, this kind of moderate behavior gets you labeled a Nazi Coddler nowadays.

We had to fight a world war to get rid of the first round of Nazis. By taking up that mantle and espousing those ideas they leave people no other recourse than violence. Part of being a Nazi is advocating for the extermination of entire races and religious groups. That is completely unacceptable and should be met with fierce resistance from every sane person. Anyone who tolerates their presence is part of the problem. It is never OK to be a Nazi, end of story.

#3, brain dead donnerchild,

A neo-Nazi attacks you with a steel pipe, you swing back with your fists but quickly fall into a fetal position in self defense, then donnerboy and Trump PRETEND "there was violence on both sides." Their position is beyond pathetic, it is evil and dangerous.

So does Antifa have the right to stand their ground when racists attack?

You know as well as I do that Antifa came prepared to fight. The problem occurred when the police did not do their job and keep them separated.

Just so you know...

If a Nazi were down my street and I go out to confront him there is probably going to be violence because the Nature of Nazi's. They are violent. But knowing this we could and should do better by being more creative than the Nazi's (which shouldn't be too hard!)

And because I am subject to the same forces and emotions as everyone else in America (and because I am a former Marine) I am not saying I would do any better or be a good little "Gandhi" and just take a beating. I am saying there is a better way.

We just don't choose to use it.

Who is we? What orders were the police operating under? Should the people that film these events be arrested and thrown in jail like Manning, because it is too embarrassing to the police, the army or any other Government official?

I'm of the opinion it's a bit more complex.

1st, I believe, they must be identified. Yet, when we have a part of the left screaming Nazi at a huge portion of American's, as well as the MSM not helping in this at all, we're looking at a whole lot of folks 'not being tolerated' who don't deserve that treatment.

You're right, it's not OK to be a Nazi or white supremacist, but according to the all inclusive rhetoric being carelessly used today there are, apparently, millions of Nazi's running around the country. The only thing I'd add to that is, I have serious doubts that shouting them down or disrupting lawful gathering's of REAL white supremacist's will ever have an affect on their presence in America.

Following logic, the next step up from shouting & disrupting is violence. And no, that is not a call to violence from me. Just how I view the current situation.

100% of Monson's posts are trolling posts.

I've tried to explain that in order to be effective it needs to be mixed up a bit and employ more subtlety if the trolling is to be effective.

You're right, Jeff.

With all the practice it seems he's had, he makes for a terrible troll. I've suggested he get some new material as well. Needs to do something if planning on making it a career.

I guess I do sort of enjoy shutting him down, tho.

Since I'm quite certain you are wondering, AB, how that applies in this case I will show you.

As for your reading comprehension, I am still eagerly awaiting your explanation on how my #12 in this thread shows, what you consider to be, 'coddling'.

Donner has talked about his service in the marines on occasion and he's always very consistent with what he says.

I 100% believe he served in the Marine corps based upon the totality of his posts on the subject.

I know that, Redial. I was backing up his post because Willowby was calling into question Donner's service, which for anyone who has been on this site for a long time doesn't even remotely doubt.
