Charlottesville Shows Racists In U.S. Are Getting Bolder
On Friday night, and again on Saturday morning, hundreds of KKK members, White Supremacists, militia members, and other racists gathered in Charlottesville, Virginia. It was the largest gathering of racists in decades -- and shows that perverse movement is still large and is getting bolder.
Why are they now coming out from under their rocks and are no longer ashamed to openly spread their hate? It's because they believe they have a friend in the White House -- and that his election means a lot of Americans agree with them. They are wrong, and it's time for decent Americans to stand up and say so.
Perhaps the best article on the sick racists that showed up to spread hate in Virginia was written by John Pavlovitz on his own blog. I believe what he has written deserves as wide a readership as possible, so I repost it below.
