Dale Gohr of Clarkdale to Mitt Romney : Your on-line criticism of President Trump comments about the Charlottesville fiasco is beyond reprehensible. You are a blatant disaster and I voted for you twice. The major differences between voting for you and for Trump are substantial. You have always been a “Rockefeller Republican” aka known as a “RINO (Republican In Name Only)” or apt to side with the Liberals; thus, my voting for you in both cases was the poorest excuse known for voting for anyone. I voted for, and solidly stand with Donald J. Trump; because I firmly believe his ‘Ideology and Core Beliefs’ are aligned closely with mine and that what is claimed by you, the media and all the rest of his detractors is essentially, uninformed hogwash. Where is there any real evidence of Donald Trump’s racism, sexism, xenophobia or foreign government collusion? Who actually started the violence in Charlotteville? Was it the So-called Rally Organizers? Or ] the counter protesters? Trump denounced all forms of bigotry and violence, but it doesn’t matter what he says; the Hate Trump media and political factions will spin it to vilify Trump.I believe you are more closely aligned with the snakes like John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Jeff Flake and the flamboyant financial and media manipulators,like George Soros, Mark Zuckerberg et;al; than weasels like Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, Susan Collins Chuck. You make a lot of meaningless noise, but I your opinions of Trump are worthless. You may want to hold religiously to the status quo; those are the Ideas that are destroying the moral and financial fiber of our nation. Go Soak Your Head, you have apparently ceased to use it for anything productive.Trump called it right when he said, “Where does the removal of historical icons end?” I remember studying history and after the Civil War; I believe President Abraham Lincoln and General Grant held out an Olive Branch to the Confederate States and duly honored the patriotism, bravery and sacrifice of the Confederate Military. Are we expected to Forget and/or Change History? The intellectual honesty of the protesters tearing down a statue was on display; if there is anything more childish, senseless and dimwitted than this behavior, I’ve never seen. This performance would just be funny; if it weren’t so “Stupid”.

Marc Jeremiason LD26: It is not by extremists. It is by paid rioters. It matters. It means things are not as bad as the news makes it out to be. All we have to do is follow the money. Thanks for caring and sharing. Jeremiason refers to the Nation Has Watched In Disgust
