    Lads if you want to claim that white people are the master race, stop giving the spotlight to scrawny nerds who probably get laid once a decade.

    Yeah fascists on the rise because of a Pres who actively has white supremacists in his team, the same egotistical president so obsessed with his popularity that he knows the only things that give him a poll bounce is saying/doing warlike things, this'll end well clearly, but you know it would have been worse with Hilary obviously e-mails.

    Gorka will probably say it's a put-on liberal attack to make Nazi's look bad.

    Mentioned Ezekiel Kweku earlier, might as well plug one of his pieces about American history and the current moment. Puts in a good dig at Woodrow Wilson too.

    Just another POV mate, which they're entitled to. Sit down and have a chat with them for a minute to try to understand how they feel.

    After all, not *all* Nazis.....

    Well we can wait until it's confirmed but it appears it was a 'counter protester' who did the running over, thinking he was driving into Nazis when he was actually driving into the 'other team'

    Unconfirmed, so take it for what it is.

    Helicopter crash with two fatalities is apparently also "connected" to the rally. Not sure how yet.
