Grieving Mother of Charlottesville Victim Responds to President Trump

Heather Heyer

Susan Bro, the mother of the 32-year old woman killed on Saturday by a possible domestic terrorist in Charlottesville, Virginia thanked President Donald Trump for his words of comfort and for denouncing those who promote violence and hate. It was a very classy statement.

The media could learn from her.

She also offered condolences to the families of the two state troopers. “My condolences, also, to the grieving families of the two state troopers and quick recovering for those injured,” she added.

People aren’t talking about the troopers.

After the media denigrated President Trump’s first message to the public about the events in Charlottesville, the White House issued a stronger written statement Sunday. He spoke personally and passionately Monday.

“Racism is evil and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to what we hold dear as Americans,” Trump said in a statement from the Diplomatic Reception Room.

On Monday, the president also spoke about Heather Heyer, saying, “Her death fills us with grief, and we send her and her family our thoughts, our prayers and our love.”

Jim Acosta, hoping to re-ignite the media-generated controversy, asked the President,

“Can you explain why you did not condemn those hate groups by name over the weekend?”

“They’ve been condemned,” Trump said with a slightly sarcastic smile. “They have been condemned.”

Acosta tried to grill him, but Trump wasn’t buying it. “I like real news not fake news,” Trump said. “You’re fake news.”

On his way out, Acosta asked Trump if he hasn’t spread fake news himself.

Meanwhile, others are not looking to reconciliation. In Durham, protesters toppled a confederate statue.

Crazy Bernie is accusing President Trump of telling the world neo-Nazis and racism are okay.

  1. For quite some time I have wondered why anyone is “required” to make some statement of condemnation when an action takes place. The typical response is “I condemn in the strongest possible terms”. Really? Was one of that person associates guilty in some way. And so it’s been since Saturday with an onslaught of complaints that words weren’t to the liking of “some people” by the President.

    This is undoubtedly one of the most asinine requirements people have hoisted on another. It is more about control. When media itself is going non-stop with demands that someone say specific words, otherwise they are ostracized, that in itself is a form of control that is inflicted on a person.

    Control is a method to enhance one’s own moral superiority and virtually everything in this societal conflict today can be traced to that morality play. Each person and each group are attempting to reach a higher rung of moral superiority than another. This was on full display with the speeches in Seattle by different sides. Each one attempted to climb one rung higher. THIS is the epitome of racism and it is evident that ALL who are protesting are filled with the disease. Some are too immature or unstable to realize it.

    The media are worst of all, as they are only able to grasp the most superficial of arguments as shown by the demands of “condemnation”. In their superficial minds it is MORE important the words the President says than the violence and death in the streets. THAT is the obsessive focus.

    • very corrupt…when Obama had said of the rioters looters who caused millions of dollars of damage and beat up people in Ferguson that they were right to be angry, the media never asked Obama to take it back.

      The main stream media is paid by the left to act the way it does.

  2. Maybe we should start calling them “corporate supremacists”, or maybe “corporate separatists”, or we could just call them corporate Nazis. CNN = Corporate Neo Nazis. I’ll have to think a while for the others.

  3. The media today promotes the idea that President Trump is responsible for rioting that George Soros paid for. This follows eight years of promoting the idea that Obama, undoubtedly the worst and the most divisive President in our history, could do no wrong. The media definitely promotes fake news. Actually, it is closer to unadulterated bullshit.

    • …The media today promotes the idea that President Trump is responsible for rioting that George Soros paid for …

      Exactly.

      Unfortunately at least half the population will buy it and hate Trump a little more than they already do.
