If You Voted For Trump, You Voted For The Charlottesville Nazis. Yes, Yes You Did.

This weekend, the world watched vicious attacks by American Nazi Trump supporters in Charlottesville, Virginia. Pro-Trump white supremacists carrying Nazi flags and Confederate flags marched down streets with assault rifles, beat people with clubs and shields, and chanted their hatred for everyone who isn’t a heterosexual white Christian American like them. One Nazi Trump fan, James Alex Fields, drove his car into a crowd of black and white counterprotesters standing together, carrying signs with words like “Love” and “Solidarity”.

These Nazis wore Trump red caps with the slogan “Make America Great Again”.

In response to the Nazi attacks in Charlottesville, Republican members of Congress like Orrin Hatch and Marco Rubio are now trying to distance themselves from Donald Trump by saying that they condemn in the strongest possible terms the white supremacist hatred, and are calling for Donald Trump to do so as well.

It’s all bullshit.

If these Republicans were really condemning Nazi white supremacists in the strongest possible terms, they would be demanding that Steve Bannon be fired. They would be calling for the impeachment of Donald Trump.

Where were these Republican members of Congress in November of 2016?

They were telling people to never mind the white supremacist Nazism and vote for Donald Trump anyway.

donald trump is hitler

We reported on Donald Trump’s associations with Nazis and white supremacists over and over again in 2015 and 2016. The information was widely available. Republican members of Congress knew about Donald Trump’s Nazi links, and they chose to ignore it.

They’re weren’t alone. They were joined by millions and millions of other Americans who looked at the well-reported links between Donald Trump and American Nazis, and decided to vote for Donald Trump anyway.

Over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again, Donald Trump encouraged crowds of his supporters to become violent. All of America saw this. Republican members of Congress and Republican voters chose to embrace this violence.

If you voted for Donald Trump, you voted for the violence of the Charlottesville Nazis. You chose this.

Every single Republican who voted for Donald Trump now needs to explain why they thought that voting for a politician who chose to associate with Nazis was okay.

If you have a single ounce of integrity remaining, you’ll admit that you supported the American Nazi cause. You’ll apologize, and you’ll tell us all about what you plan to do in compensation for your mistake.

If you’re not willing to do this, you yourself are an American Nazi. You might as well fly a Nazi flag outside your front door and wear a swastika band on your arm.

    By your logic, a vote for Hillary was a vote for that guy who shot up the Republican softball practice. The events of Charlottesville are way bigger than Donald Trump. Both sides came ready for a fight ( it’s not hard to find video of Antifa people thumping their opponents and vice versa) and this appears to be a struggle between your kind of socialism, that is, global, and that other kind of socialism, that is, national. The national socialists enlist Confederate heritage types and Alt-Righters while the global socialists enlist BLM, the Democratic Party, “never Trump” Republicans and so on.

    I say this is way bigger than Trump because he didn’t start this fight and he will not finish it. It’s quite possible that he doesn’t even fully understand it.

    1. Juniper says:

      No, Dave, the logic there isn’t the same.

      There wasn’t any warning at all, much less one over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over during the presidential campaign that Hillary Clinton aligned herself with and encouraged violent acts by hateful ideological leftists.

      We had warnings in 2015 and 2016 over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over that Donald Trump was connected to, adored by, supportive of violent acts by American Nazis.

      Trump didn’t start the fire. He poured gasoline on it.

      If you voted for Trump, you voted to help pour the gasoline on.

      Your comment is a pathetic piece of denial, Dave.

      1. Dave says:

        It’s still way bigger than Trump. Also, could you just say “repeatedly” rather than “over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over?” Hurts my eyes.

        1. Juniper says:

          Nazis hurt my moral conscience.

          They don’t hurt Donald Trump’s.

          Why?

          1. Dave says:

            Why? Well, I just can’t answer that, as I don’t have the same access to Trump’s moral conscience as you appear to. I do know what he said, however, in his most recent press conference, which appears to me to be a repudiation of neo-Nazis and their fellows. Thus spoke Trump:

            “I am not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally. But you had many people in that group other than neo-nazis and white nationalists, and the press has treated them absolutely unfairly.” “I think there’s blame on both sides … I have no doubt about it and you don’t have any doubt about it either, and if you reported it accurately, you would say [so]. ”

            The President seems to understand that the Nazi’s and white nationalists have co-opted the Sons of Confederate Veterans and others who are simply trying to fend off the cultural rape taking place across the south (something the good ol’ USA is quite good at among various peoples of the globe) and is gently shining some light into the dim recesses of the minds of the press. It’s a pretty savvy observation when you think about it.

          2. J Clifford says:

            Co-opted the Sons of Confederate Veterans?!? You’ve got to be kidding, Dave. The Sons of Confederate Veterans is a wacky right wing racist organization that supports outlandish historical revisionism. Nazis haven’t co-opted them. Their members have favored Nazi ideology for generations.

            But then, you believe that it’s “cultural rape taking place across the south” simply for memorials celebrating treasonous racists to be taken down.

            Sounds like you’ve got some of that Nazi ideology yourself.

  2. Dave says:

    J — Don’t like being called a cultural rapist? Then for the love of Mike STOP DOING IT!

    A couple of nights ago a mob of ignorant goons surrounded a bronze statue in Piedmont Park in Atlanta which, although now a very lovely part of town was once the site of a bloody battle, the location of one of the last stands of the South against the U.S. invasion. The statue is of a woman representing peace and reconciliation, with a Confederate soldier in surrender laying down his gun at her feet. At the unveiling of the statue fifty thousand civil war veterans from North and South marched through the city to the site for a solemn dedication. As the goons damaged and defaced the memorial I am sure the irony of their monstrously ignorant actions was completely lost on them. After all, it’s just one more of those monuments to racism.

    It is said that when your only tool is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. Their actions bear that out, and in the same fashion so does your last comment.

    Dave makes the most sense of anyone so far in this discussion. While not correct about everything (e.g. “alt-right” is a fake news term conjured up by dedicated unlimited government advocates so that they can include a hodge-podge of misfits together with “conservatives” and other anti-establishment types in order to smear limited government advocates), he is basically right about where Trump stands, and Trump’s motivations. BTW, Trump is neither a limited government advocate nor an unlimited government advocate, but a functionalist who is in between to two positions while still being part of the Establishment. Attacking him is okay when you are attacking him for things he is wrong about (eminent domain, ends justifying the means, blind allegiance to authority, CFR administration members, etc), but attacking him when he projects traditional American values and common sense is reprehensible. Obama, just to name one, is far more detrimental to liberty than Trump. We would be better off if Trump didn’t win the Primary, but the stupid Republicans failed to select one of the better candidates. So voters then elected Trump because the alternative was even worse.
