Now He Knows, Nazis Piss Us Off
August 15, 2017
So, Trump finally said the words! Finally conceded that neo-Nazis, white supremacist and KKK members should be held accountable. And it only took him a couple days to work it out.
While the rest of us figured swastika banners flown alongside of stars-and-bars flags and all those white guys carrying shields adorned with white-power symbols were a dead giveaway, apparently the Donald felt it more complicated. Ever the deep thinker, he thought the problem came from many sides and required study.
But after a few days of continuous critique for all sectors of America (except for the alt-right, of course), he conceded that, perhaps, neo-Nazis, white supremacist and the KKK may harbor blame. This is a big step forward for the Donald. What next, love beads and peace rallies?
While the Donald finally said the requisite words, even the alt-right doesn’t believe he meant it. David Duke, the racist’s racist, tweeted, “It’s amazing to see how the media is able to bully the President of the United States into going along with their FAKE NEWS narrative.” Yeah, he thinks poor Trump was bullied by the press.
In an anti-Semitic, racist Periscope video rant, Duke went on to say, “President Trump, please, for God’s sake, don’t feel like you need to say these things.” It should be mentioned that during the same rant Duke defended the Nazi who ran down counter-protesters, killing Heather Heyer. “When you’re under attack … you panic and you do things that are stupid and you do things that are wrong,” Duke said.
Nevertheless, on one point I must agree with Duke. While I don’t feel the Donald was bullied, I also don’t think he meant a word of his second statement. Trump simply responded to political pressure and read boilerplate words. Remarkably, he even stayed on message.
So, now Trump knows, when the republic sees Nazis attack and murder other Americans we get pissed off. While this notion may seem intuitively obvious to most of us, apparently, this is new territory for the Donald. After all, it’s only been two-hundred-eighty days since he used the alt-right to win the election, how could he know they would be so unpopular?
