This. Trump nails it. In a past article I said that the Klan and Neo-Nazis were vile and to be condemned … but the Klan and the Nazis are a tiny minority of weirdos. They would have had their little protest and left. The alt-left however are a violent group who arrived looking for a fight. Through out our society the left seek to silence other voices and excuse themselves from civility on the basis that the other side are “evil”. Since we are talking about Nazis anyway, was that not their argument for the genocides they committed?
Trump is absolutely right to condemn the Nazis but right to condemn the thugs who riled the situation up. Anyone involved in political violence must be charged, convicted and punished.
Trump also raises valid questions about a revisionist approach to history.
