The Distinction Between President Trump’s response and citizen Barack Obama’s Response to Charlottesville
Obama’s duty to represent ALL Americans was concluded with Trump’s Inauguration. He is a civilian and can condemn freely who he chooses, American or not. Trump as president has a duty to uphold the law. To condemn ANY American individual could be considered unconstitutional if it leads to a deprivation of rights protected under the Constitution. In some ways, it could have the same affect as a Bill of Attainder, prohibited under the Constitution under Article I.
Trump is being tested and baited by his detractors. They want to find him unfit to serve or have him impeached.
Trump upheld the Constitution, per his oath, with his initial response to the violence that occurred in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday, August 12. The detractors are wasting everyone’s time. And if you doubt the whole Charlottesville fracas was staged, read the court filings leading up to the event. The hate groups were intentionally diverted to confront counter-protestors. Until you read the facts, you spout propaganda.
See for yourself; read the supporting court filings linked on the bottom:
Misunderstanding and ‘intellectual cowardice’ are to blame for this Trump-Charlottesville debacle. The problem with free speech now a days is that some key messages (the entire story, all facts) are being muffled by a crowd of too many voices, as astutely stated by a guest on NPR a few years back regarding the current state of the free speech movement.
Apolitical people attended the protest for reasons in no way related to race-related politics. Historic preservation of the struggles of this nation, good and bad, is essential so we as Americans of all races can take stock of how far we’ve come and how far we have yet to go to achieve national unity. Censorship comes in many forms; silence can be achieved in many ways.
