Before getting everyone irate at me, I want to make it perfectly clear that I condemn all forms of extremism ? black, white, Hispanic, Asian, Islamic, Christian, Jewish, etc. However, after listening to so many whining and ignorant liberals in the media, Democrats and even Republicans, about this weekend?s violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, I had to vent my frustration and anger over the one-sided hypocrisy that is running rampant.

First of all, everyone began condemning President Donald Trump for not condemning white supremacists in his first address on Saturday after the Charlottesville violence. Even Republicans condemned Trump for not denouncing white supremacists in that first statement. Do any of them realize that at the time Trump spoke out, law enforcement had not yet identified or released the identity of the driver of the car that plowed into the crowd of protesters? If it hadn?t been released who the driver was and what he stood for, then how was Trump supposed to condemn one group?

Secondly, I want to take everyone back three years to August 2014 in Ferguson, Missouri. On the 9th, Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson responded to a call about a store robbery and assault. He saw two youths who matched the description and he stopped to question them. One of the youths, Michael Brown, refused to comply with Officer Wilson and physically attacked the policeman while he was still sitting in his patrol car. Brown was a BIG kid, over 6-foot-tall, over 300 pounds and his punches to Wilson?s face were so severe that Wilson?s eye socket was fractured. Wilson feared for his life and went for his gun. Brown tried to take the gun away from Wilson, who ended up shooting Brown in the head in self-defense. Both a grand jury and a Department of Justice investigation cleared Wilson of any wrong doing.

However, black activists descended upon Ferguson and destroyed entire blocks of cars and businesses. Store windows were broken, many thousands of dollars of merchandise were stolen. Cars were over turned and set on fire. Some businesses were also set afire.

Yet, Barack Obama never condemned the black activists responsible for the violence. Instead, both Obama and then US Attorney General Eric Holder publicly condemned Officer Wilson and the Ferguson Police Department. The two leaders sided with the rioters and those who committed the destruction of Ferguson. Among those activists was Black Lives Matter, who received the full support of Obama and Holder.

Worse yet, the liberal mainstream media also blamed Wilson for supposedly cold-bloodedly murdering Brown, when all of the evidence proved otherwise. The more the media supported the violent black activists, the bolder the activists got. Groups of blacks in many cities began physically attacking whites for no apparent reason. They claimed it was justice for Brown and Trayvon Martin (who was killed by George Zimmerman, a Hispanic, not white).

The media never condemned Obama for failing to speak out and condemn the violent black activists. Yet the same media is busy trying to nail President Donald Trump for not being strong enough in his condemnation of the violence and for not naming white supremacy groups as being responsible.

This is typical liberal hypocrisy of Democrats and the mainstream media, but to hear it from a number of Republicans is beyond excusable. Where were these Republicans when black activists were destroying Ferguson and attacking white people? Where was the media when Obama sided with black activists and failed to condemn them?

I don?t know about you, but I?m sick and tired of the double-standard, one-sided hypocrisy that is ripping America apart. The people guiltiest of the hypocrisy are the same ones that cry out for equality, but they are the ones who refuse to give equality to others. Those condemning Trump for doing more than Obama ever did are the worst racist hypocrites of all.

Good article. The hysterics on the far far left will never be satisfied until this country is in the dustbin of history.

Daniel, I assume that you can define exactly what the "far left" is.

Or is it simply a symbol of what you dislike???

Far left: antifa, BLM....... 2 that come to mind

Texas A & M white supremacist rally was canceled. Must add to your frustration.

Bernie Sanders. What soup listed. I have plenty more, zap. But do you care to debate, or bicker? 

kingwood resident --- 4 years ago -

Thank you "watcamacallit" for telling like it is. No one came down on Obama when he made those incendiary statements. The Black community became so destructive they should have all been arrested and charged. Listen those of you that call whites racists need to remember you are biting the hand that feeds you. They have done so much for you, yet you never give back. I am so sick and tired of you claiming to be affected by slavery, racism, poverty and on and on. You have been treated equally under the law for a very long time so quit with your allegations.

These ramped up demonstrations by white supremacists are the result of the left and their effort to remake America. All the constant protests, riots and violence on the left is stirring them up.

Although there are many whites that are sick of being cast as evil simply because of the color of their skin, most won't rise up and fight, until they really have to. These "supremacists" thrive on and enjoy hate and anger and everything that BLM, ATIFA, etc. do. They are just the flip-side of the same coin. Both sides are the lowest of their kind.

This environment of blaming everything on whites is what is stirring up the supremacist, as they are the least civilized portion of the white population and the most willing to take fighting into the streets.

How long did you think it was going to take for supremacists to respond to blacks and other minorities trashing and targeting whites and even protesting white peoples existence?

If something doesn't change soon, I will not be surprised if we have an all out racial civil war here...if it hasn't started already.

Evil has reared it's ugly head in response to the ignorant, lopsided world view that is being forced on America. Opportunists abound!

Makes for a wonderful story doesn't it. And yet you guys keep getting it wrong time after time because it does not fit into your version of events.

The truth is President Obama not only condemned the violence but he also called the activity criminal and called out those responsible for the looting.

Get your facts straight. You cannot make up history. You cannot re-write what has been so extensively covered.

Liars. Cowards. Tell the truth. Tell it now.

This is an exact quote from Pres Obama's speech concerning Ferguson:

"Now, second, I want to address something that?s been in the news over the last couple of days, and that?s the last situation in Ferguson, Missouri. I know that many Americans have been deeply disturbed by the images we?ve seen in the heartland of our country as police have clashed with people protesting, today I?d like us all to take a step back and think about how we?re going to be moving forward.

This morning, I received a thorough update on the situation from Attorney General Eric Holder, who?s been following and been in communication with his team. I?ve already tasked the Department of Justice and the FBI to independently investigate the death of Michael Brown, along with local officials on the ground. The Department of Justice is also consulting with local authorities about ways that they can maintain public safety without restricting the right of peaceful protest and while avoiding unnecessary escalation. I made clear to the attorney general that we should do what is necessary to help determine exactly what happened and to see that justice is done.

I also just spoke with Governor Jay Nixon of Missouri. I expressed my concern over the violent turn that events have taken on the ground, and underscored that now?s the time for all of us to reflect on what?s happened and to find a way to come together going forward. He is going to be traveling to Ferguson. He is a good man and a fine governor, and I?m confident that working together, he?s going to be able to communicate his desire to make sure that justice is done and his desire to make sure that public safety is maintained in an appropriate way.

Of course, it?s important to remember how this started. We lost a young man, Michael Brown, in heartbreaking and tragic circumstances. He was 18 years old, and his family will never hold Michael in their arms again. And when something like this happens, the local authorities, including the police, have a responsibility to be open and transparent about how they are investigating that death and how they are protecting the people in their communities. There is never an excuse for violence against police or for those who would use this tragedy as a cover for vandalism or looting. There?s also no excuse for police to use excessive force against peaceful protests or to throw protesters in jail for lawfully exercising their First Amendment rights. And here in the United States of America, police should not be bullying or arresting journalists who are just trying to do their jobs and report to the American people on what they see on the ground.

Put simply, we all need to hold ourselves to a high standard, particularly those of us in positions of authority. I know that emotions are raw right now in Ferguson and there are certainly passionate differences about what has happened. There are going to be different accounts of how this tragedy occurred. There are going to be differences in terms of what needs to happen going forward. That?s part of our democracy. But let?s remember that we?re all part of one American family. We are united in common values, and that includes belief in equality under the law, basic respect for public order and the right to peaceful public protest, a reverence for the dignity of every single man, woman and child among us, and the need for accountability when it comes to our government.

So now is the time for healing. Now is the time for peace and calm on the streets of Ferguson. Now is the time for an open and transparent process to see that justice is done. And I?ve asked that the attorney general and the U.S. attorney on the scene continue to work with local officials to move that process forward. They will be reporting to me in the coming days about what?s being done to make sure that happens.

Thanks very much, everybody."

These are his exact words. This should stop any arguments. (I did not put the first half of his speech in because it did not concern Ferguson.)

Compare that to trumps words where he said there were good people in the white supremacist rally

You are right. Pres Trump is not a politician and is not even close to being politically correct. 

fuzz81 --- 4 years ago -

"Politically correct" is a layman's buzzword

"Politically correct" is a layman's buzzword

No. Mostly used in academic circles.
Previously used extensively by socialists. Modified by feminists and the New Left in the 70's. 

fuzz81 --- 4 years ago -

Lol. You should never use the word academic, handyman. 

sdanielmcev --- 4 years ago -

What does my profession have to do with it? Or, does it bother you so much that a lowly handyman is much more learned than you?

President Barack Obama today scolded those responsible for the riots in Ferguson on Monday night, saying, ?Burning buildings, torching cars, destroying property, putting people at risk ? that?s destructive, and there?s no excuse for it. Those are criminal acts, and people should be prosecuted for it.? Speaking to an audience in Chicago, Mr Obama added, ?Nothing of significance, nothing of benefit results from destructive acts.?
?The frustrations that people have? are rooted in hard truths that need to be addressed,? Mr Obama said. ?The problem is not just a Ferguson problem; it?s an American problem.? He also welcomed the less dramatic, peaceful protests that occurred on Monday night in response to the grand jury?s decision, in cities including New York and Washington, DC. Of the rioters in Ferguson, he added: ?I have no sympathy at all for destroying your own communities.?

This is what he said as well. How can it get clearer than that? 

sdanielmcev --- 4 years ago -

Intelligent people do not attempt to legitimize nazis

Nowhere have I tried to legitimize Nazis. Correcting nincompoops on history in no way legitimizes them.
