I see this forum's first thoughts following a rally in which Nazis took to the streets shouting "Jews will not replace us" and rammed a car into protesters, killing at least one person, are "well, at least it's not Obama" and "be a bit more specific about the location please"

This is breaking news and a massive issue - people are being killed - can we have a proper discussion and not discuss the location or who posted the thread?!

I can't believe that This can still happen in America - a country which is so diverse and supposedly forward has people shouting "burn the Fags" and attacking black people and they are allowed to do it! So ****ed up

The man HATES democracy.

The real problem Trump and the majority of other Obama haters had was the colour of his skin.

If you don't like or support a president who is a black man it must be because of the colour of his skin. It couldn't possibly be for any other reason. Agenda driven rubbish.

Trump was just putting emphasis on peace for everyone and that everyone needs to be respectful etc
Failed to point out that the issue here is the white supremacist
If the issue was the BLM movement he would've pointed that out and talked about how awful they are like he does with Muslims

I'd be interested in reading/hearing about what actually happened in a nonbiased way. I don't trust Twitter, not after a free speech event which was crashed by violent leftists turned into "Nazi Trump rally attendants attack anti-racists"

Multiple Republican senators are now tweeting things along the lines of "this is domestic terrorism", "we need to combat white supremacy" etc (even Farage is in disbelief that there are people doing Nazi salutes in 2017, as if he's totally innocent of fuelling stuff like this). The President, on the other hand? Not only makes sure to emphasise that there's violence "on both sides", but stops mid-speech to talk about what a good job he's doing at reducing unemployment. Prick.

Er, what do you want to read about if it isn't the truth? Hundreds of people are taking to the streets with torches chanting stuff like "Jews will not replace us" and "**** the ******s" and, er, running people over and killing them. Wake up.

He also did not denounce the Nazi element.

This is probably coming from the same people who defend police when they shoot unarmed black men so it's gonna be impossible to get our point across
Even though they are literally killing people
