Why hasn't one of the conservatives on this forum started demanding Trump call it terrorism?

The NHL's Detroit Red Wings released a statement denouncing the use of their logo at the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, and saying they are considering legal action to stop it.
link
The team says it "vehemently" disagrees with and is not associated with the event. The Red Wings add they are "exploring every possible legal action as it pertains to the misuse of our logo in this disturbing demonstration."

...
Men dressed in militia uniforms were carrying shields and openly carrying long guns.

Right-wing blogger Jason Kessler planned what he called a "pro-white" rally to protest Charlottesville's decision to remove a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee from a city park. ...

There were also fights Friday night, when hundreds of white nationalists marched through the University of Virginia campus carrying torches.

I see nothing here but left wing protesters of a right wing event.

They should have stayed home the idiots. Instead they got hurt, or worse.

Why were they there? To interrupt the rights of a Right wing group who's rights they intended to deny. In other words they had no right to be there. Of course the left wing idiot who wrote this piece of stench would rename and vilify the right wing group out of hate for the right. To bad the author was not one of the ones ran over..

So who to the payments from Soros to fund the left wingers here anyway?

Maybe you should find that mountain of stupidity.

Regards, Kirk

And there goes Kirk wishing people harm and trying to insinuate that it's not a white nationalist rally.

I guess David Duke was lost and somehow wound up there.

(1) To tear down the statue seems like a symbolic attempt to eradicate southern history; and many of us are thoroughly opposed to that.

(2) It is my understanding that the counter-protestors--i.e. the "progressives"--were troublemakers bused in from Washington, DC.

(3) That said, the original protestors were apparently infused with members of the KKK and American Nazis--which are hardly representative of those of us who adhere to mainline conservatism.

All in all, it is a clash that some of us wish that both sides could (somehow) lose...
