The Prez declaring "hate on both sides" is an insult to the protesters wanting peace. He and his buddy Steve Bannon promote racism.

Standing against this kind of extreme nationalistic, Neo-Nazi white supremacy, ugly racist stuff is a non-partisan issue. We fought WWII for this reason. I'd like to see some GOP type orgs join this march. There is only one side of this issue. Where are the orgs on the other side of the aisle?

I am ready to fight white supremacy at any time of day. I am white and I don't know who these people think they are. We are all equal whether you like that or not or agree or disagree. This is supposed to be 2017 not 1934.

Isn't it interesting that the Chumash have never even hinted at removing statues or other memorials to Junipero Serra, and no NGOs that I know of have come boiling out of the woodwork`to support the tribe's effort to exercise land use rights that are guaranteed under federal law. Not sure why this situation is so different, especially after reviewing images of father Serra - I'd much rather look at a statue of Robert E. Lee than Serra, because that 'do the padre had on his head, was a crime all by itself;-)
