Trump lit the torches of white supremacy in Charlottesville. We must extinguish them. - The Washington Post
Trump tries to take naming out of debate. The conservatives make it the center of debate - by declaring the name is not open for debate.

> But this abomination that happened in Charlottesville over the weekend is not up for debate. It’s not a cultural take or a political platform. Racism, bigotry and terrorism in the name of white nationalism isn’t a “side.” It’s a poison.

Glad I cleared up that problem.

Commonplace Books -- Old Wine in New Bottles
