    Poll question for group - Is Mr Trump responsible for the attack in Charlottesville?

    I've seen on news feeds the push to claim Mr Trump is ultimately responsible for the attack yesterday and I was curious how many of you agree with that current narrative?

    Yes. He ran on aggression and included hate groups in his staff and the terrorist watch listed KKK by another name credit him as their inspiration.

    I think Trump is responsible for making these White Nationalists or White Supremacists Comfortable enough to march in the open with no masks no disguises because they think the head of the federal gov't has their back.

    The editor Andrew Anglin of the Daily Stormer said:

    "People saying he cucked are shills and kikes. He did the opposite of cuck. He refused to even mention anything to do with us.

    When reporters were screaming at him about White Nationalism he just walked out of the room."

    Please note what the Daily Stormer said about Trump's lack of response to condemning them. It should send chills down your spine.

    PS this is how the Daily Stormer described the VICTIM of the attack that was killed, "Heather Heyer: Woman Killed in Road Rage Incident was a Fat, Childless 32-Year-Old Slut"

    These are Trump supporters that are White Nationalists/White Supremacists. You LIKE? I spit to anybody that supporters them or Trump after this if Trump doesn't denounce White Nationalists/Supremacists after this.

    Trump certainly ushered in a white-nationalist administration, and now Nazis are marching on our streets.

    Trump has certainly emboldened Neo-Nazis and white supremacists by his rhetoric. Plus, some changes in the government that tells racists the Trump administration will turn a blind eye to them.

    While Sessions' new approach on immigration and crime have taken center stage thus far, the Justice Department's reversal of the federal government's position in a key voting rights case earlier this year did not go unnoticed.

    During the Obama administration, DOJ had joined efforts to block a strict voter ID law in Texas, arguing the law was aimed at suppressing the state's minority voters.
    But the Justice Department under Sessions asked a federal district court in February to dismiss its claim that the ID law was enacted with an intent to discriminate against minorities, noting that the Republican-led Texas legislature was working on a new law.

    The Trump administration wants to revamp and rename a U.S. government program designed to counter all violent ideologies so that it focuses solely on Islamist extremism, five people briefed on the matter told Reuters.

    The program, "Countering Violent Extremism," or CVE, would be changed to "Countering Islamic Extremism" or "Countering Radical Islamic Extremism," the sources said, and would no longer target groups such as white supremacists who have also carried out bombings and shootings in the United States.

    Does he bear sole responsibility? Of course not.

    But the miscreants responsible for the violence are staunch Trump supporters, and therefore, it's Trump's responsibility to address them unequivocally.

    Not enough evidence to say at this point. However, other white supremacists have claimed in the media and in various court proceedings that Trump inspired them to violence, and they offer fairly convincing arguments for this assertion. Furthermore, it would appear the killer told his mother in Ohio that he was headed to Virginia for a pro-Trump rally, or at least led her to believe that he was. Was that merely a tactic to mollify his mother that he knew to be false, or did he see Trump as an inspiration? We may learn the truth as the case unfolds.
