the changes were made law months ago
an alt right blogger got the protest going and most of the are kkk and white nationalist

The south lost the war. many many men loyal to our country died to reserve the Republic. The reason I have a problem with the confederacy having statues and flags still honoring them is...THEY ****IN LOST, I don't approve of an enemy the US having honorary happiness, they were trying to secede from the union. Screw them. But it has nothing to do with race from either side.

People who call themselves Republicans should go out of their way to denounce this kind of activity. It almost always leads to violence.

he said We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for. There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come together as one!
and later
We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides.

That is about as generic a pass as you can give.
When a muslim or person of color does something he calls em out.

The Left couldn't have asked for a better gift...

The ONE instance of Rightwing idiots now nullifies the HUNDREDS of instances of Leftwing idiots that have rioted and they've never had to denounce...or even pretend it exists...
