Charlottesville

Postby Old Fart » Sat Aug 12, 9:53 pm

I lived there 12 years and couldn't wait to get the fuck out. Racist scumbags everywhere. What I don't understand is why UVA students weren't out in force shouting them down.

Shocking scenes. Not sure I can agree with removing the statue though.

It's just a statue. Big deal.

Do you think early August had anything to do with it?

I quite agree, or renaming the park, utterly ridiculous.

True enough most students are off campus but many of them live local and there is still lots of activities during the summer. I worked there.

They're useless unattractive pigeon poop and graffiti covered statues and a reminder of Jim Crow. Not that it matters all that much if you melt them down, we don't have Hitler statues and we've a steady supply of home grown neo Nazi's just the same.

Trump said the street brawling is bipartisan carnage and he was wrong again. He rants all week about ego driven petty grievances and then tosses of a muted and completely insufficient response to Charlotte. He just can't say anything bad about his base of supporters, even if they're the most reprehensible bastards.

That makes two times I've agreed with Cat this year. I can't remember what the other one was though.

I have some interesting stories about Richmond, VA too...

In my experience, UVA students are usually privileged white kids who spend the summers at the lake house of their folks...

Why not get rid of the statue?!
smh to the idiots who say and think you are erasing history by removing the statue... gtfo nothing is being erased! It should be moved to a fucking civil war museum or memorial not left as a statue.

Why celebrate a Traitor?

Do you Brits have statues of Bennidict Arnold?

Trumps thoughts on:

Obama - disaster
Paris - shithole
White House - dump
Boy Scouts - liars
Neo-Nazi rally - many sides to issue.

Too bad about the violence, but I am somewhat relieved to see College students agitating and
protesting. The last thing we need now is to look the other way and tolerate one supreme group`s intolerance.
Too bad the fascist fuckers didn`t throw that party in Baltimore or Oakland...

I just read the next one is at Texas A&M scheduled for Sept. The Grand Wizard is calling for a much bigger crowd.

There is plenty of redneck support in Tejas for these bastards, and its a long trip for the northwestern anarchists.
Its up to blacks, hispanics and decent white citizens to protest these cunts.
Students and lefties will be fewer and quieter in the Lone Star state.

Sure, if he's perusing those porn sites, but what if he's doing those porn sites instead? You might be seeing more of him than you'd prefer!?

I'm clearly just a simple kiwi and the big wide world is just too much to understand

But I can't believe their are so many neo nazis in America in such numbers

Can't believe a president would be such a lame dick either

I reckon if your going to be a nutty organisation at least come up with your own new name rather than reusing some stupid death Germans

Please don't let Donald start firing missiles any where near down under

Do you think what the media shows you is an accurate representation of the 330 million people in the US?

Nah but I dont have much else to go on other than some pics and media reports and I guess social media stuff

I generally don't trust governments or media as a rule of thumb

Do these "neo nazis " exist ?

Is Donald Trump an accurate representation of 330 million people in the US?

They're small in number, but occasionally get significant media attention. They have won major 1st Amendment cases to uphold their right to march. Like in Skokie Ill. back in June 1977. The march didn't amount to much of anything but the case was a landmark ruling in the state Supreme Court.

I was always virulently anti fascist and anti racist, but in my youth we didn't have organized Antifa organizations to hook up with at the time. You were on your own if you wanted to confront white power goons and risk assault charges and jail time.

They do. You may want to check out the NZNF or the Western Front at the University of Auckland, they have a comparable level of support as similar groups in the states according to media reports.
