"On many sides."— Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) August 12, 2017
Never forget that phrase.
Three words that protected violent bigotry.
"On many sides."
+ Many lawmakers from both sides of the aisle have condemned this terrorist attack from Orrin Hatch to Marco "twitter fingers" Rubio. They've mostly all called this a domestic terror attack because, yes, white people can do such things as well. While Urinator-in-Chief has spoken about the attack, he has yet to condemn the actual groups (his voter base) for the violence and blamed the "many sides". Trump has been dragged by nearly everyone for his lukewarm response. His responses afterwards have also been awful. The driver of the car has been identified by law enforcement and some of the names of the Neo-Nazi protestors from Friday are trickling out. It's a shame his pastor and family didn't report him after he was radicalized. The FBI and DOJ are also launching an investigation re: saturday's protest and terrorist attack.
We have nazi sympathizers and white nationalists in the White House. Condemn them too. They should not be receiving taxpayer money.— John Legend (@johnlegend) August 12, 2017

Even an outdated, homophobic, misogynist, racist politician should know at this point that "thoughts and prayers" do not cut it. https://t.co/SrNDIScN4g— billy eichner (@billyeichner) August 13, 2017
