'Proud Boys - Stand back, stand by' Trump sidesteps white supremacist condemnation

Source: AP

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump danced around a question from moderator Chris Wallace about whether he was willing to condemn white supremacists and military groups.

“I would say almost everything I see is from the left wing, not the right wing,” Trump responded. “I’m willing to do anything. I want to see peace.”

When pressed further, Trump said, “What do you want to call them? Give me a name. Give me a name?”

Finally he said, “Proud Boys — Stand back, stand by, but I’ll tell you what, somebody’s got to do something about Antifa and the left because this is not right-wing problem..... This is a left wing problem." /snip

I stand corrected!

5. Trump is fully aware that his most reliable core of support is among white supremacists and fascists

And he has known this since before he pretended not to understand a question about David Duke years ago.

6. Rallying the Brownshirts (or, Hawaiianshirts..whatever) on national TV.


My passport expires Thursday, and you bet your ass I am immediately applying for a renewal.

I don't want to end up like one of those Germans who didn't get out in time, if that fascist piece of shit steals the election.

22. Dogwhistle? No, he revealed that he's the leader of a terrorist organization.

Explicitly issuing orders to the terrorists is not a dogwhistle.

24. Agreed

If questioned again he would probably say he was being "sarcastic"--his excuse for when he called out to Russia in 2016.

27. No Kidding.........

Every time I hear the RepubliCONs spewing their right wing BS I can't help but think of Charles Manson and his
"Helter Skelter" rampage.

Trump has these Proud Boys and White Supremacists are deluded in their thinking they are like the MINUTEMEN in the Revolutionary War.

Insurrection......an act of revolting against civil authority or an established government......

Sedition............incitement of resistance to or insurrection against lawful authority.

This is BY FAR the most thoroughly corrupt political party in the history of our nation. RepubliCONs have become a
truly Fascist Party, with absolutely NO respect for rules or laws, or the Constitution.......

And, Fox news is nothing more than Putin's Pravda/state owned media in Russia.........live and well in America......

19. The question was a favor to Trump.

It was a chance to defuse the "he's s a racist" criticism, even with a lie. What does it tell you that a serial liar didn't dare take the escape route with a lie on this issue alone?

21. more over, if you watch the clip, before he utters those words...

he pauses.

it's that pause that got me.

there is no need to pause, he was choosing his words.

he knew exactly what he was going to say.

the right wing nazi racists are his only voters and he didn't want to piss them off.

he's a fucking psychopath.
