Led by Rep. Steve Cohen, the left seeks to send the alt-right to concentration camps
Rep. Steve Cohen of
Tennessee announced Thursday he is introducing articles of impeachment against
President Trump following
the violence in Virginia.
Mr. Cohen, a
Democrat, said Mr. Trump failed
the “presidential test of moral leadership” in the wake of the bloody clashes
between white nationalist groups and rival protesters in Charlottesville.
“I have expressed great concerns
about President Trump’s ability
to lead our country in the Resolution of No Confidence (H.Res. 456) that I
introduced in July with 29 of my colleagues; however, after the President’s
comments on Saturday, August 12 and again on Tuesday, August 15 in response to
the horrific events in Charlottesville,
I believe the President should be impeached and removed from office,” Mr. Cohen said
in a release.
“Instead of unequivocally condemning
hateful actions by neo-Nazis, white nationalists and Klansmen following a
national tragedy, the President said ‘there were very fine people on both
sides,’” he said. “There are no good Nazis. There are no good Klansmen.”
That of course is hyperbolic, highly
inflammatory and outright false. We have already
shown that there were people not Neo-Nazis or Klansmen who were in
Charlottesville to protest the removal of statuary. From the NY Times, no less.
His words of “moral leadership” are hollow and vapid. Cohen asserts that Trump cannot
discern the difference between a Nazi and a protester.
He added, “What happened in
Charlottesville showed that the president can’t discern the difference between
a domestic terrorist and a protester. He can’t distinguish between citizens,
Americans who are objecting to abhorrent behavior of Klansmen and Nazis and
Nazis and Nazis and Klansmen. That demonstration in
Charlottesville reminded me
of Kristallnacht in 1938 in Germany. It reminded me of Klan rallies with
the torches. Those people were yelling, ‘Jews will not take our jobs.’ They do
not like African-Americans. They don’t like Jews. They don’t like America.”
Not liking someone is not the same as
killing them. I am no apologist for the alt-right but wow this is over the top
rhetoric. The Neo-Nazis have yet to start killing any religious group en
masse and the Klan wouldn’t get very far trying to lynch anyone today. The
last time it did happen the Klan paid dearly for
The murder of Michael Donald in Mobile,
Alabama in 1981 was the last recorded lynching in the United States. Several Ku Klux
Klan (KKK) members beat and killed Michael Donald, a young
African-American man, and hung his body from a tree. One perpetrator, Henry
Hays, was sentenced to death and executed in 1997, while another, James
Knowles, was sentenced to life in prison after pleading guilty and testifying
against Hays. A third man was convicted as an accomplice, and a fourth indicted
but he died before his case could be completed at trial.
The execution of Hays was the first
in Alabama since
1913 for a white-on-black crime. It was the only execution of a KKK member
during the 20th century for the murder of
an African-American. Donald’s
mother brought a civil suit for wrongful
death against the United Klans of America (UKA), to
which the attackers belonged. In 1987 a jury awarded her damages of $7 million,
which bankrupted the organization. This set a precedent for civil legal action
for damages against other racisthate groups.
The irony is that it is Cohen who
lost his grip. The media would have you believe that the protesters in
Charlottesville were all clergy members and peaceful students. Nothing could be
farther from the truth.
And do not be distracted from the
accusation that Trump considers both the alt-right and the counter protesters
to be “equal.” They clearly are not but short of committing a crime, they are
equal under the law. It is irritating but not surprising that the media is not
in the least interested in this concept. The President did condemn the violence
but the truth is that both sides were involved in the violence and it was the
counter protesters who sparked the violence when they attempted to physically
block the alt-right from lawfully entering the park. I have yet to see this
mentioned anywhere in the media. There were twoearlier
protests in Charlottesville that went on without any major conflict.
What was different this time?
If you look at the pictures of the
earlier rallies, you’ll see something you didn’t see in this latest event-
police presence in the middle of the event. The police in the most recent
episode are absent. They were on the sidelines watching. They were not
proactive. They were barely even active. The National Guard had been mobilized
but they were also held back.
That’s because Gov. Terry McAuliffe
and Mayor Michael Signer wanted conflict. Heather Heyer paid for that with her
life. Now the blame is being placed on the alt-right and Donald Trump and don’t
you dare try to argue with facts. Cohen and the left now want to exact revenge
for the loss of the election. The way this is going, they won’t be satisfied
until all of the alt-right are interned in concentration camps. After all,
democrats are no strangers
You might notice that Cohen has more
than a passing resemblance to Heinrich Himmler. The irony abounds.
