I am shocked and I am saddened. Most of all, I am sickened by the ugly, heartless and brutal actions that occurred in Charlottesville.
This isn’t some peaceful protest on a far-away continent that somehow went horribly wrong.
This was right here in our own backyard.
White supremacy, bigotry, hatred, violence, murder. People dressed up in riot gear, faces covered lest they be identified – too chicken to stand unmasked for what they believe in – and with sheep mentalities – spoiling for a fight and beating on an innocent man because of the color of his skin. You disgust me. And let me tell you – you disgust a lot of America. You are NOT who we are or who we have become.
We fought this fight before – in the violence of the South that was prevalent in the 1950’s – and again – in the 1960’s when three civil rights activists in Mississippi were murdered and a prominent NAACP leader died in a fire bombing.
We did not rest until we avenged those deaths and brought those responsible, forward to face the consequences of their actions – and we will do so again.
And what do we say about Mr. Trump who cannot call it for what it is? Did anyone hear the words “white supremacy” in his comments?
No, I didn’t think so. And you may wonder why that is.
Are there people of power who really believe that this is a country only for white men? Of course there are. Look around. They aren’t hard to find. The real question is whether The Donald is one of them. What was it that Scare-A-Moochi said? Oh, yeah … A fish sinks – from the head down.
The defense rests, Your Honor.
