    The outrage about Trump’s comments on Charlottesville has been somewhat surprising for most sane conservatives. He condemned all violence. Who could object? Two groups of haters attacked each other; it was like the Soviets fighting the Nazis -- sane people wanted both sides to lose. But the voices from the Bubble are telling us that only one side was bad and that condemning all violence, like saying all lives matter, is evil. The liberal and media response was expected since if Trump were to say that the sky was blue or that the sun rises in the east they’d attack...

Appearing on Katz’s 1140 AM WRVA radio program, Moran explained the rapidly moving sequence of events that began at 11:22 a.m. when he phoned Governor McAuliffe from the City of Charlottesville Command Center located on the sixth floor of the Wells Fargo building in downtown Charlottesville, just a few blocks from Emancipation Park. “In light of the escalating violence we had...

    A Facebook post for a protest dubbed “Destroy the Confederacy” at Sam Houston Park in Houston on Saturday warns “*Do NOT bring children.” A group “committed to protecting Texas and Texas History,” “This Is Texas Freedom Force” (TITFF), says demonstrators plan to tear down a Confederate statue. They also warn there will be violence. The promoters of the protest tell potential attendees: “We will meet at Sam Houston Park (right in front of Houston City hall) to demand that the City of Houston ERASE THE CONFEDERACY! It is a STAIN IN THE FABRIC of our history that needs to be...

    A top Republican Party official in New Mexico’s second-most populous county stepped down Tuesday, two days after making social media comments about “violent, leftist protesters” that sparked outrage. The Doña Ana County Republican Party announced on Facebook that it has accepted the resignation of its former chairman, Roman Jimenez, who had previously said the comments were taken out of context. The county party’s new interim chairman, Victor Contreras, said Tuesday that he and other county party officials stand in opposition to acts of violence and racism that occurred in Charlottesville, Va., when a large group of white nationalists gathered to...

    When it comes to political violence such as we witnessed in Charlottesville, Virginia last weekend, there are no partisan “sides” to the issue. In an enlightened society, you either believe violence is an acceptable means to an end, or you do not. In this parity, there is no room for equivocation, where the perceived nobleness or virtue of one’s agenda can excuse it. Initiating force against any group or individual for the sake of achieving a political goal or simply making a political statement, is morally and legally wrong. Full stop. Last weekend was a national embarrassment in every sense...

    Extremism: It wasn't long ago that Americans were being told repeatedly not to overreact to Islamic terrorism, because that would only serve as a terrorist recruiting tool. That's worth remembering now, in the wake of the white supremacist attack in Charlottesville, Va. Harsh language, bitter attacks, backlash against attacks, accusing whole groups of being in bed with terrorists, were all, we were told again and again, "just what ISIS wants." "The Islamic State wants the West to overreact," was a typical comment over the years. One commentator complained after the Manchester bombing in England this summer that saturation coverage of...

    A rally in Virginia on Saturday intended to “Unite the Right” ended in chaos and bloodshed. The way events unfolded suggests that the main battle plan for the powers that be in America has nothing to do with illusions such as “left” and “right”—nah, instead, their primary goal appears to be Dividing the White.

Officers said glass bottles were thrown at them. Publicly available videos on social media show the teens surrounding officers in their vehicles, hopping on top of cars and generally taunting police.
