Trump condemns hate in Charlottesville, triggers liberal hatemongers on Twitter

On Saturday, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to express his concerns and condemn the hatred being displayed in Charlottesville, Virginia, where, the Washington Post said, “hundreds of neo-Nazis, Ku Klux Klan members and other white nationalists had gathered to protest the planned removal of a Confederate statue.”

They were met by violent counter-protesters and fights predictably broke out.

Shortly after 1 p.m. Eastern Time, Trump tweeted: “We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for. There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come together as one!”

Earlier in the day, First Lady Melania Trump urged calm:

Vice President Pence also weighed in:

Naturally, the insane left went ballistic, comparing Trump and his supporters to Nazis:

According to his Twitter bio, Jarvis is a professor of journalism…

A number of hatemongers attacked Trump’s tweet directly:

Swan, a leader in the NAACP according to his Twitter bio, went on to demand that Trump resign after posting a video of David Duke.

Swan, however, did not condemn the violence of left-wing counter protesters.

Got that, Trump supporters? You’re just like those who supported Hitler…

And liberals wonder why America is so divided.

The Washington Post noted:

Men in combat gear, some wearing bicycle and motorcycle helmets and carrying clubs and sticks and makeshift shields fought each other in the downtown streets, with little apparent police interference. Both sides sprayed each other with chemical irritants and plastic bottles were hurled through the air.

A large contingent of Charlottesville and Virginia state police in riot gear were stationed on side streets and at nearby barricades but did nothing to break up the melee.

A group of three dozen self-described “militia” – men who were wearing full camouflage and were armed with long guns – said they were there to help keep the peace, but they also did not break up the fights.

Here’s reports from journalists on Twitter:

Couric didn’t say who deployed the urine, but we have a pretty good idea, since it’s happened at least once before.  One person said:

Gov. Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency Saturday morning, pinning the violence on “mostly out-of-state protesters,” the Post said.

“I am disgusted by the hatred, bigotry and violence these protesters have brought to our state over the past 24 hours,” he said.

More to come… Stand by.
