Charlottesville has been filling up the headlines around the country today. There is so much going on that we do not even know where to start. It seems like there are some very big problems going on in this country right now and it is about time we find a solution. With the help of President Donald Trump that should be pretty easy.
The march in Charlottesville has garnered a lot of attention. Some good and some bad. Liberals and conservatives alike have condemned the people marching for their twisted views on race. But that still gave no right to police to start attacking them for no reason. They have every right to protest, no matter what they were saying.
But now a name that has been heard a lot lately has come out with a statement. John McCain has come out of the woods once again.
“Our Founders fought a revolution for the idea that all men are created equal. The heirs of that revolution fought a Civil War to save our nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to that revolutionary proposition.”
That is just the beginning. He makes some good points here. Violence should not lead to violence. That is not what out country was founded on.
“Nothing less is at stake on the streets of Charlottesville, Virginia, where a violent attack has taken at least one American life and injured many others in a confrontation between our better angels and our worst demons.”
This is true once again. But a person lost their life. No matter their beliefs, that is, by definition, a tragedy. Not very many people are talking about the fact that someone died today during the march.
“White supremacists and neo-Nazis are, by definition, opposed to American patriotism and the ideals that define us as a people and make our nation special.”
Our nation is very special. People need to be able to protest whatever they want, no matter how others feel about it.
“As we mourn the tragedy that has occurred in Charlottesville, American patriots of all colors and creeds must come together to defy those who raise the flag of hatred and bigotry.”
