““We must call evil by its name”: Republicans criticize Trump, Jeff Sessions for ignoring white supremacists in Charlottesville statements” Reply

“Donald Trump did not hesitate to compare U.S. intelligence officers to Nazis but after white nationalists waving the Nazi flag erupted in violent clashes throughout downtown Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday, the president failed to call out racists and chide white supremacists — even after a car plowed into a group of anti-racists protesters, killing at least one person.

A spokesperson for the University of Virginia Hospital cited one death and at least 35 injured on Saturday afternoon, the violent aftermath of a what appears to be a deliberate attack. White supremacists gathered near the college campus to protest the removal of a Confederate statute. Self-identified “alt-right” protesters —a key constituency of Trump’s base made up mostly of white men— marched through the campus carrying tiki torches Friday night.”  MORE

“Under President Barack Obama, the Department of Justice staunchly supported gay rights. Those days are long gone.

The Department of Justice filed an amicus brief on Wednesday, claiming that the 1964 Civil Rights Act does not extend to sexual orientation, according to a report by CNN. Title VII of the landmark legislation protects employees from discrimination based on color, national origin, race, religion and sex — but doesn’t actually include sexual orientation.”  MORE
