Stop the hate, world.

It's crazy. Gallery of photos posted ... look at the anger (on both sides).

Trump also refuses to point the blame, don't you think that one side here has the right to be angry ?

Here's an interview with the mother. Something seems a little odd.

There is no 'both sides' here. This is a group that wants to erradicate people. The people they want to erradicate SHOULD be angry. Nah, they MUST be angry.

I was simply making an observation based on what I noticed in the photo gallery. Nothing more, nothing less.

We are about an hour down the road from Charlottesville, and have debates going on now on what to do with Monument Avenue (a whole multitude of confederate statues). The public hearings have not been pretty.

I have a real fear this mess is going to repeat itself here.

Horrific. No other word for it. Except maybe pitiful. Up here in Canuckistan, we are being kept busy absorbing hordes of Haitians who fear deportation if they stay in the States.

So why did America think it was such a great idea to give the position of most powerful person in the world to a well-known misogynistic, racist, homophobic, egocentric, megalomaniacal, lying billionaire with obvious sociopathic tendencies who openly claims to love the poorly educated and war? Well now that he's got one, a civil war no less, I hope he's f***in happy. The rest of you, I don't know about. Nor does the rest of the world.

Richmond? Hadn't thought about monument avenue...

Monuments don't bother me as much as the confederate flag flying over the state house in South Carolina (two years ago). Monuments just seem like outside museums: more history than current statements. The statue was commissioned 100 years ago and finished 94 years ago (from what I've read). Leaving history doesn't mean we agree with it. I think trying to erase any signs of history is more dangerous. I think that we can end up being so politically correct that we end up living in a completely sterile, empty environment.

But it's certainly not a straight forward, easy thing to answer.

It seems like there are a lot more important issues to tackle.
