If you were at this protest and you weren’t protesting against the neo nazi white supremacists, we know who you are. We know.

After the events in Charlottesville last week, there seems to be a little confusion about the difference between Neo-Nazi White Supremacists and those who showed up to protest them. So much so, the POTUS proclaimed “There are two sides to a story”.

Presumably what he meant by this is that some of those who appeared next to the Neo-Nazi White Supremacists were only guilty by association, because some of those very fine people only showed up to protest the rewriting of history. Even though the neo-Nazis White Supremacists who appeared under the auspices of protecting their culture and history in protest of Confederate statues being removed, made no mention of these reasons in any of their posters or flyers promoting their protest.

So predictably, there’s been a lot of accusations tossed back and forth about the counter-protesters who showed up armed with baseball bats, clubs, pipes and other weapons including rocks and even handy bags of piss and shit perfectly sized to hurl at the neo-Nazi White Supremacist scum.

This has led Trump and many on the right to accuse these counter protestors of being instigators, the ones who “threw the first punch”, so to speak. The ones who violated the rights of some of those “very fine people” who just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, denying them their God given right to exercise their freedom of speech.

To which I say, that’s some bullshit. Why? If you have the balls to play dress up in broad daylight in 2017 on U.S. soil as a Neo-Nazi White Supremacist with all the trimmings – you know waving Confederate flags, saluting Hitler while wearing swastikas, shouting, “Jews will not replace us”, you lit the spark that ignited the flame that started the fire just by showing up in the first place, you vile, pile of walking, breathing human excrement.

And that includes anyone who showed up to protest beside them. If you took part in their protest in any way, even if you were just there to preserve your history, you were and are guilty by association, just as if you were in a passenger with a bunch of bank robbers fleeing the scene of the crime in a getaway car, even if you were just along for the ride. You were attacking the land and way of life you claim to love so much, just as much as the Neo-Nazi White Supremacists were.

So, you were either on the side of America, life, liberty, justice and the pursuit of having none of that bullshit – or you were playing for the other team. For all of you who are still having a hard time understanding the point of this post, let me put it in terms you can understand: You’re either with US, or you’re against US.
