Denouncing white supremacy is not “political correctness”

You’ve probably heard about the events in Charlottesville where white supremacy groups were protesting..and the next day one of those racist thugs ran over counter protesters with a car, killing one and injuring several others.

Please make this as simple as possible. White supremacy groups are to be condemned, period. No “ifs”, “ands”, “buts”, “butwhatabout”, etc. It really isn’t that difficult and no, 45 has not issued such a straight forward condemnation whereas many other top Republicans have.

Yes, white politicians will go to black groups and to black churches and tell them how terrible racism is. Guess what: they need to do this in WHITE churches, especially conservative white churches. (UCC, UU churches do not count). Frankly, that probably will not happen, at least in any large numbers anyway.

This is about white supremacy and text book racism.

This is not about principled debates over: tax structure, what sort of social safety nets to have and how to implement them, affirmative action (what type, if any and how it is done), crime (declining, but still an issue) etc.

Dear conservative reader (if there are any): I am not trying to turn you into a liberal. I couldn’t even if I tried.

This is about condemning this. It is a very low bar to clear.
