No good deed goes unpunished.
Following the horrific events in Charlottesville, President Trump released follow-up statements to his Saturday remarks, which read as follows:
“Racism is evil and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans. Those who spread violence in the name of bigotry strike at the very core of America.”
Charlottesville and Trump’s Previous Statements
On Saturday, Nazis, KKK members, and other white supremacists joined forces in Charlottesville, Virginia. These people carried lit torches, screamed expletives at LGBT people, and fought with AntiFa and Black Lives Matter folks. When the President learned of such, he released a public statement condemning ALL forms of racism and bigotry.
However, this was not enough for the mainstream media and others. Following the President’s remarks, they bashed him for not being specific enough. Mr. Trump’s critics wanted to hear him use the words “Nazis,” “KKK members,” and “white supremacists.” The President condemned these exact groups mere hours ago and liberals are still complaining.
Trump Critics Will Never Be Satisfied
What President Trump says or does not say really is immaterial, at this point. When he criticized all hate groups as a whole, his critics whined. When he specifically called out “Nazis,” “KKK members,” and “white supremacists” by name, as requested, it still was not enough. As the old saying goes, you cannot please everyone.
If President Trump’s critics want to believe he is racist, they will do so, no matter what. Charlottesville aside, the President has repeatedly disavowed racists, but that does not matter to the Left. Democrats are unnaturally obsessed with tarnishing President Trump’s character.
Since President Trump’s earlier, aforementioned remarks, the Left is now complaining, stating that he wasn’t timely enough. This feedback shows that some folks will never be satisfied. If people dislike a particular individual, they will always find a reason to complain. Over the years, President Trump has repeatedly condemned racial hate groups. If people choose not to acknowledge it, that’s their problem, not the President’s.
Since the unfortunate events which took place on Saturday, there are rumors of similar upcoming events. The decision to reenact Charlottesville occurrences is unwise. As President Trump stated earlier, the Charlottesville lawbreakers will be held accountable. Additional consequences will likely be harsher if a second breach occurs. Anyone foolish enough to engage in a repeat of Saturday better be ready to bear the brunt of all that will follow.
