White House Confirms Trump Condemns White Supremacists, KKK, & All Neo-Nazi Extremist Groups

Following the media's brouhaha around President Trump's apparent decision not to specifically call out and condemn the white supremacists and neo-Nazis who gathered in Charlottesville this weekend, The White House has issued a statement confirmingthat the president "does not condone violence, bigotry, and hatred... from any extremist groups."

As The Hill reports, Trump took bipartisan heat on Saturday for not directly calling out hate groups in his remarks, and for blaming "many sides" for the violence.

"We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides," Trump said at a press conference from his New Jersey golf course.

 

"It's been going on for a long time in our country. Not Donald Trump. Not Barack Obama. This has been going on for a long, long time," he continued, before highlighting his administration's accomplishments.

And so, as WaPo reports, in interviews on Sunday morning news shows, national security adviser H.R. McMaster and homeland security adviser Tom Bossert echoed the vague comments that the president made in a statement at his private golf club in New Jersey on Saturday, signaling that Trump does not plan to heed calls from fellow Republicans to bluntly confront and condemn white supremacy.

"What the president did is he called out anyone, anyone who is responsible for fomenting this kind of bigotry, hatred, racism and violence," McMaster said on ABC's "This Week" on Sunday morning. "I think the president was very clear on that."

 

On CNN, Bossert repeatedly praised the president for not naming the groups that were involved and instead focusing on an overarching call for Americans to love one another.

 

He said that people "on both sides" showed up in Charlottesville "looking for trouble" and that he won't assign blame for the death of a counterprotester on either group, although he said the president would like to see "swift justice" for the victim. After repeated questioning, Bossert did say that he personally condemns "white supremacists and Nazi groups that espouse this sort of terrorism and exclusion." He did not say whether the president agrees with him on that.

 

"The president not only condemned the violence and stood up at a time and a moment when calm was necessary and didn't dignify the names of these groups of people, but rather addressed the fundamental issue," Bossert said on CNN's "State of the Union." "And so … what you need to focus on is the rest of his statement."

But apparently that was not clear enough and so The White House issued a brief statement:

"The President said very strongly in his statement yesterday that he condemns all forms of violence, bigotry, and hatred," the White House said in a statement.

 

"Of course that includes white supremacists, KKK Neo-Nazi and all extremist groups," a spokesperson added.

 

"He called for national unity and bringing all Americans together."

Trump's eldest daughter, Ivanka Trump, took to Twitter on Sunday morning to write two short messages: "There should be no place in society for racism, white supremacy and neo-nazis," and "We must all come together as Americans — and be one country UNITED. #Charlottesville."

Trump does the forbidden, names all sides for creating the violence/trouble.'bout time we have a President that has the courage to call it as it is.    Obama  didn't call it as it is as it didn't fit his divisive agenda.    Reps/Senators....well....they don't have term limits like the President so must say what the votes want them to say so they waffle and hide..the chicken shits.

"Hmmmm... a little vague there.  I'm sure he knows who the instigators really were and whom the true haters, bigots and violent disrupters are......"Yeah, it's called George Soros, the DNC, The Elite and the Military/Intel Systems.It's ALWAYS been easy to denigrate the stereotype WHITE Supremicists. And true to form, the media targeted them as the chief perpetrators.But the real truth is that the PROPOGANDISTS like Soros/Others who are purposely promoting Gender/Ethnic Identify nonsense. PURPOSE: To keep the American people completely isolated from one another. That way, Americans won't look at the REAL ISSUES that are killing this society: NO JOBS, A THOROUGHLY CORPORATIZED HEALTH CARE and NO "future" dreams for the MILLENNIALS.

Illegal actions?

The white nationalists had a legal permit from the City to hold a rally.

The illegal ones were BLM and Antifa thugs who had no permits and who instigated and perpetuated most of the violence.

Trump needs to call out BLM and Antifa thug violence which is being condoned by Democrats and financed by Soros and other globalists.

The Deep State isn't really the Deep State either.  It's more of an all encompassing occupying state.  Deep implies that it is small and hiding.  They're not really hiding shit anymore.  They control our currency, the SCOTUS, Congress, the media and pretty much everything else.  Before 1913 it was the deep state, now the shit is almost global to the extent that there is very little that they do not control.The Deep State banks funded Hitler and Stalin simultaneously.  The Deep State has always been behind the KKK, just like they were behind ISIS.  White people are now being framed by the hood wearing deep state clowns otherwise knows as the KKK.  Par for the course.  It wouldn't be so bad if people didn't give them ammo all the time. The biggest problem is that people want to believe the deep state agents and the memes they create.

Just what is the definition of a white supremacist these days? It has evolved to the point that if you are white and support anglo's then you are a white supremacist. Simple wearing a tee shirt that says anything about being proud of being white gets you labeled as KKK, white supremacist, nazi etc.

It wasn't even kosher to wear tee shirts that said "All Lives Matter". Much less "White Lives Matter".

So Mr Orange Jooo. What is wrong for a group of people to get a permit for a group meeting or legal permitted march where the primary subject is anglo peoples concerns and pride in their race and heritage?

If you are alive and breathing, you are a white supremacist. If you are happily married to a white person with adorable clean cut kids, you are a double triple white supremacist.

Whites are supposed to die off and leave their assets to non whotes. Before death, whites are to happily watch their assets be confiscated.

He is buying off on the narrative created by the fake news he condemns. The origin of this was not about "white supremacy". Did Trump mention there is a movement to destroy the culture of white males? It is about destroying cultural norms of a geographical area which once stood for states rights.One of the criticism I have had of Trump is he doesn't mention liberty and the destruction of individual rights. He is a centrist, just not as bad as those who preceded him. His stand on states and local liberties is weak.

White House Confirms Trump Condemns White Supremacists, KKK, & All Neo-Nazi Extremist GroupsMy response: While we all know that Saturday, August 12th, was a day of real turmoil and sadness in Charlottesville, VA, there is something deeper at work behind the scenes and it has to do with VA Governor Terry McAuliffe, a Progressive Liberal Democrat. In my mind, this GUY is a wolf in sheep's clothing and of questionable character.Question: What if the Governor Terry McAuliffe set up the conditions where there was a high probability that this situation would become inflamed and violent? While this maybe a controversial question, it needs to be asked.Below is an article describing who this GUY has as an inner circle of friends. Terry McAuliffe And The Clintons (https://gop.com/terry-mcauliffe-and-the-clintons/)In addition, he has also been on the offensive against the 2nd amendment. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-06-14/governor-terry-mcauliffe-calls…, what is truly disturbing about Saturday is that the people who were protesting were a little disturbed as to why the nation is removing all traces of America's civil war history. While I am NOT a supporter of any ethnic supremacism including White, Black or what ever color you choose, it is very disturbing to see America's heritage (good and bad) being removed from the public square.Let me end with a couple of quotes that are worth remembering.“A nation which does not remember what it was yesterday, does not know what it is today, nor what it is trying to do. We are trying to do a futile thing if we do not know where we came from or what we have been about.”-- Woodrow WilsonTake away the heritage of a people and they are easily persuaded.-- Karl MarxSomething is rotten in the state of Denmark!!!!!
