When ISIS kills hundreds of people, we have sympathy for Islam because #NotAllMuslims. When a homosexual kills himself we say “it gets better.” When white nationalists peacefully gather, peacefully march, and are directly attacked by violent leftists, we punish the victims.
The Senate has approved a resolution condemning white supremacists, neo-Nazis and other hate groups following a white-nationalist rally in Virginia that descended into deadly violence.
Democratic Sens. Mark Warner and Tim Kaine of Virginia introduced the measure along with four colleagues from both parties. The resolution, approved unanimously Monday night, recognizes a woman who was killed Aug. 12 and 19 others who were injured after a car allegedly driven by a neo-Nazi slammed into a crowd of demonstrators protesting the rally in Charlottesville.
The resolution describes Heather Heyer’s death as a “domestic terrorist attack” and acknowledges two Virginia state troopers who died in a helicopter crash near the protests.
The resolution urges the Trump administration to “use all resources available to address the growing prevalence” of hate groups in America.
Careful there Senate, because soon the line of what you consider to be a white supremacist neo-Nazi hate group will become even more blurred. Soon the middle won’t exist anymore. Soon when even left leaning libertarians can fit into your vague description of white supremacy merely for pointing out fallacies in the left’s argument, there won’t be anyone who will see the Alt Right as their enemy. In fact, they will sympathize with them. We don’t need the masses to agree with every point of the Alt Right. We only need them to realize that we’re not the enemy. The swamp is. And behavior like this will only help our cause.
There might come a time when the Alt Right doesn’t have a choice. We’ll need our own Civil Right movement just to hold the beliefs we have legally.
