Sorry, not Nazi but a member of the Ku Klux Klan.

"A New York Times article published 01 June 1927, related Donald Trump's father Fred Trump's role in a Ku Klux Klan brawl that pitted 1,000 klansmen against 100 New York City Police in Queens. Though he wasn't officially charged, Fred Trump was one of seven klansmen arrested during the incident. It probably wasn't very shocking at the time as America's racist practices were in full swing generations after Abe Lincoln freed the country's African-American slaves. In fact the mid-20's saw a peak in KKK activity. Donald Trump would later deny his father's involvement in the KKK brawl in spite of the fact that it happened two decades before he was born. Fred Trump's enthusiasm for racist practices never changed until he was forced to do so by the law."

bullshit. trump has not promoted any such thing and if you would actually open your easr you will hear him say over and over again that he has disavowed any and all white supremacist organization and people.

go look that up on youtube and you will see. but i guess its easier to just believe all the bullshit out there floating around

This is what your president has promoted and fostered throughout his campaign and up to this day.

It's hard to believe what I've watched.
This is not Nazi Germany which we fought a World War about.
This is sickening but this is what trump is leading us to.
If you watched him on his campaign trail, you know who and what he is and what he's all about. There is no defense of this parasite.

He condemned the KKK as far back as 1990. But you don't hear that on CNN.

In the 1990s

Trump eagerly denounced Duke on more than one occasion decades ago, according to Factcheck.org.

In 2000, Trump told NBC’s “Today” that he wouldn’t seek the Reform Party nomination because he said the party was “self-destructing.”

Matt LAUER: “When you say the party is self-destructing, what do you see as the biggest problem with the Reform Party right now?”

Trump: “Well, you’ve got David Duke just joined – a bigot, a racist, a problem. I mean, this is not exactly the people you want in your party.”

The New York Times also reported at the time that Trump issued a news release referring to Duke as “a Klansman” and not the “company I wish to keep.”

Trump also spoke out against Duke in 1991 – three days after Duke lost a race for governor in Louisiana.

CNN’s Larry KING: “Did the David Duke thing bother you? Fifty-five percent of the whites in Louisiana voted for him.”

Trump: “I hate seeing what it represents, but I guess it just shows there’s a lot of hostility in this country. There’s a tremendous amount of hostility in the United States.”

We cannot afford to have selective memories and selective outrage. We can’t be against hatred when it suits us. You can’t condemn Charlottesville but try to justify Ferguson. You can’t decry Neo-Nazis and the KKK and support Black Lives Matter. If you do, you are the worst kind of hypocrite. Hatred is hatred is hatred. Let’s stand together against all of it.

Yes I did watch the entire CR interview on charlierose.com. Sharpton expressed his personal opinion about public monuments not being supported by public funding based upon his families history as slaves in the South Carolina. He further said he had no personal issue with private funding supporting these monuments.

He did not represent THEY (who ever you are referencing) nor say anything about tearing down the Jefferson Memorial.

She should be aware that there are many people in our country that are out of patience. When their way of life and history is threatened, it could get very ugly for us all.
I hope soon that some of these people that are pushing these leftist views back up and start to think about thier actions. They aren't the the side capable of winning.
Everyday working class Americans who are watching from the sidelines are starting to get involved. We don't want or need that.

Really as was posted above by Rotor. Now is the time to condem all hatred and work as one.

MLK was against gay marriage. Should we take all of his statues and monuments down? Or just the Confederate monuments?

You need to stop regurgitating whatever daily kos/MSNBC tells you

Their definition of a hate group is defined by their viewpoint

Trump has no moral high ground. Nor morals, for that matter.
He defended white supremacists, neo Nazis, KKK.
THERE IS NO PLACE FOR THEM IN AMERICA.
He is racist and xenophobic.

Defending their RIGHTS is not the same as defending their ACTIONS.

We are a country of LAWS. You can change the laws, but you cannot apply them selectively.

I'm not happy about them either, I am not defending them.

So you are able to read Sharpton's mind?
