As much as Trump supporters love to throw around the word “terrorism,” they sure have been acting like, well, terrorists in the city of Charlottesville, Virginia.
A gathering of “alt-right” people (the current rebranding effort for Nazis and other white supremacists) turned violent Friday when a mob of Trump supporters carrying torches surrounded and attacked counter-protesters.
The violence from the Right continued Saturday until the city was forced to declare an unlawful assembly and kick the Nazis out.
During the chaos, one of the Nazis was caught on camera running over about 12 people (according to witnesses) with a car.

This needs to end. So far, Donald Trump has been silent on what is happening in Virginia – and with good reason. This is his base. These are his most enthusiastic supporters. He has some of them in his White House.
It’s time to end the madness.
