The violence in Charlottesville protesting the removal of Robert E. Lee's Monument (protected from being removed or damaged by Virginia law) is another example of the self-ordained activist, ultra-liberal media and self-righteous politicians creating a false narrative that anyone opposed to removing Confederate monuments is a white supremacist, neo-Nazi or member of the KKK.

Charlottesville is a "welcoming/sanctuary city" whose mayor, Mike Signer, declared it "the capital of resistance" against the Trump administration. Vice Mayor Wes Bellany called for Lee's monument to be removed and the local NAACP head Rick Turner called Gen. Lee a "terrorist." In response, the Unite the Right rally was scheduled. Some sensible officials realized there would be trouble with counterprotestors and asked federal judge Glen Conrad to move the white nationalists protests to McIntire Park for better separation, but the judge refused.

The responsbility for this tragedy is arrogant liberal Democrats who believe they have the right to decide who is expunged from history by taking down Confederate monuments of Virginians who fought and died in the Civil War. A judge too stupid to realize white nationalist/KKK/neo-Nazis confronting Antifa, predominantly communist, socialist and anarchist counterprotestors "might" become violent. Police inaction escalated the violence on "both sides" documented by the ACLU. A Democratic mayor more concerned with resisting Trump than protecting citizens.

For 10 months, the Russian collusion fantasy went no where. Now the Democrats and the Hate Trump media are engaging in another ideological conspiracy using this tragedy to implicate President Trump as a racist bigot and blame him for racial unrest.

Trump is right when he asked who's next? Two years ago it was the Confederate flag; today the monuments; tomorrow the Founding Fathers? Nancy Pelosi, Diana Feinstein and liberal Democrats consider the U.S. Constitution a "living document" designed to be rewritten as "they" see fit. They can achieve this by delegitimizing the dead authors of the Constitution, rewriting history and destroying anyone who opposes them. Sound familiar? This is the two-faced liberal ideology. They preach tolerance and diversity but intimidate and silence their opposition by calling them racists and bigots. They are what they preach against! Tearing down nouments, renaming public parks/institutions and rewriting history to satisfy their ideology while trying to destroy the freely elected President of the U.S. is extreme intolerance! You are witnessing the liberal Democrats destroy our Democracy.
