“If you look, they were people protesting very quietly the taking down the statue of Robert E. Lee. I am sure in that group there were some bad ones. The following day, it looked like they had some rough, bad people, neo-Nazis, white nationalists, whatever you want to call them. But you had a lot of people in that group that were there to innocently protest and very legally protest.
Because I don’t know if you know, they had a permit. The other group didn’t have a permit. So I only tell you this. There are two sides to a story.”
The innocent protesters on Friday night were chanting “Seig heil,” “blood and soil,” “Jews will not replace us,” and “white lives matter.”
The president said yesterday “you also had people that were very fine people on both sides.” White supremacist Christopher Cantwell says that more people are going to die in this fight. Do Rep. Cramer and Sen. Hoeven agree with the president that some of the white supremacists who marched on Friday were very fine people? Do they believe that Americans need to speak up and fight white supremacy and Nazism when they see it, as the counter-protesters were doing?
