"...the filth, the scum, the inhuman alt-right core of Trumpism..."
PM Carpenter on the alt-right Nazi filth that marched in Charlotteville, Va., today:
Welcome to Donald Trump's America
"We’re going to fulfill the promises of Donald Trump [to] take our country back," said white supremacist and all-too-typical Trump-voter David Duke to reporters today — words meant to be heard by the sick, ignorant white working class, which put the sick, ignorant Donald Trump in office.
"Many of the white nationalist protesters carried campaign signs for Mr. Trump," reports the NY Times.
In an insult to everyone with any appreciation for abysmal vileness of Trump, the president denounced "in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides" — the most egregious display having been a vote for this most wretched of presidents, who of course thrives on hatred, bigotry and violence. (You will note he condemned the counterprotesters with equal rhetorical force, because he is sick, ignorant, hateful and so on.)
Beginning last night and extending well into today, his supporters in Charlottesville, Va. have been seen "waving Confederate flags, chanting Nazi-era slogans, wearing helmets and carrying shields … [and] chanting phrases like 'You will not replace us,' and 'Jew will not replace us.'"
These are the filth, the scum, the inhuman alt-right core of Trumpism, in whose ninth circle there reigns the satanic toddler himself.
