Shortly after I wrote yesterday's political post, Donald Trump plunged off the cliff. He effectively annulled his own statement opposing white supremacy and Nazi hate groups by, one again, tacitly giving them support.

He once again played the false equivalency card, but much more brazenly and offensively than before, effectively advocating that pro-Nazi and anti-Nazi are two equal sides and that pro-white supremacy and anti-supremacy are also two equal sides.

Absolutely fucking no, they are not the same. Both do not deserve equal time. Both do not deserve equal respect.

This country and its allies fought against and defeated the Nazi movement. Millions of Allied soldiers died liberating Europe and much of the rest of the world from fascist brutality. Members of my family died in that fight, and likely yours, too.

Dana Milbank at The Washington Post wrote an absolutely brilliant column yesterday (link here) titled "Trump just hit a new low." The original title to the piece was "It's looking more and more like the White Nationalist House" -- the Post changes their headlines throughout the day for no obvious reasons.

Milbank writes: "When Trump finally gave a canned and grudging disavowal of white supremacists, he was urged anew to say more, to be presidential, to bring the nation together. Well, late Tuesday, Trump said more and told the nation what he really thought. It was downright ugly."

Further on he writes: "'You had a group on one side that was bad, and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent, and nobody wants to say that,'" said Trump. "Nobody wants to say that because there is — and there can be — no moral equivalence between Nazis and those who oppose Nazis. But Trump saw them as equal."

Right on.

Read the piece and share it with all your friends. It's time to really turn up the heat on the GOP to get rid of this man.

He disgraces America every day he remains in the White House.

    An editorial in the Philadelphia Inquirer today is titled something along the lines of "The Alt-Right Has Got Its President in the White House." Ain't it the truth?

  2. Well said again an from my Canadian point of view, «45» (POTUS) is making USA look like going backward in time and insulting your Constitution and founding founders too.

    Putting Washington and Jefferson in the same basket as Lee is such a bad comparaison and shows how ignorant of history "HE" is.

    As you said and knowing that many Canadians were killed in WWII to fight Nazis as many other nations in that war, «45» is insulting us as well by putting in the same level ultra right white suprematists and ultra left ones.

    I think that some in USA are very outdated and living in OLD ideas from the 19th century.

    This is very sad and hope this insane president will be fired soon.

    USA's reputation is at stake.
