    (3) That said, the original protestors were apparently infused with members of the KKK and American Nazis--which are hardly representative of those of us who adhere to mainline conservatism.

    All in all, it is a clash that some of us wish that both sides could (somehow) lose...

    Where did you get the idea I drive a truck for a living?

    City park, decision made by city council, who were elected by city population.

    Where's the problem here?

    You don't make a good impression.

    I didn't say there was a problem. I said let the people of the states in question decide how they want to remember their past. Now if I meant let a city council or a tiny minority within a state decide I would have said something different. Understand now, hoss?

    I am sickened by what happened today in Charlosttesville. Watching the different news outlets, I noticed that the white protesters were referred to as "white nationalists," "neo-Nazi's," and so on. The other side were called "counter-protesters." Hmmmm, BLM should have been called "black nationalists," or "black supremacists," right? The media did a fine job perpetuating the racial divide, and ramping up the violence by their mere presence.

    I noticed some of the protesters were veterans, you know, people that fought for our country and our right to protest? Nationalists? Really?

    Trump condemned the violence, unlike Obama who invited members of BLM to the WH.

    Terms have meaning, a person doesnít get to assign labels just because they donít like the labels one side has.

    There can be a whole separate discussion why BLM consists of a lot of different chapters and such, like the Tea Party, which I know several would not like the party to be judged by a few.

    Sweet.
    You notice how Trump doesn't have to be nearly as perfect as Obama had to be. Who knew all the constitutionalists here really didn't care for that piece of paper as much as they pretended to the last eight years.
