We knew we'd heard Trump's slogan somewhere before

After someone crashed a car into a crowd protesting a neo-Nazi march in Charlottesville, Virginia, killing one and injuring 10, Donald Trump offered a strong condemnation of "this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence on many sides -- on many sides." At no point in the comments did the man who insisted that we can't fight terrorism without saying "Islam" a lot actually mention white nationalists, neo-Nazis, or the KKK, because you wouldn't want to start pointing fingers or anything.

There's just a lot of hatred in the world, and, as Our President said,

It's been going on for a long time in our country. Not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama, it's been going on for a long, long time. It has no place in America. What is vital now is a swift restoration of law and order and the protection of innocent lives. No citizen should ever fear for their safety and security in our society, and no child should ever be afraid to go outside and play or be with their parents and have a good time.

Yep, won't someone think about the children at risk from violence that had nothing to do with what happened in Charlottesville? We'll assume Trump was talking about children being shot down in the streets of Chicago, for balance. Because there's a lot of anger and hate on many sides, you know. Law and order is what we need.

Say, should anyone in particular be condemned for this? Certainly: those on all sides who hate. Not the organizers of the "Unite the Right" rally or even the murderer who smashed at high speed into a crowd of people there to condemn hatred, because after all, as David Duke reminded his president earlier today, he owes a good part of his victory to them:

Trump said he'd spoken to Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, and that the two of them agreed that the "hate and division must stop, and must stop right now." We'll go out on a limb and guess that perhaps McAuliffe might have said something a little more specific about the source of the hatred on display in Charlottesville, maybe.

Trump continued, "We have to come together as Americans with love for our nation, and really I say this so strongly, true affection for each other."

And then he was pretty much done with Charlottesville, and on to what a great place America is now that he's president:

Our country is doing well in so many ways. We have record employment, we have unemployment the lowest it's been in almost 17 years; we have companies pouring into our country, Foxconn and car companies and so many others, they're coming back. We're renegotiating trade deals to make them great for our country and great for the American worker. We have so many incredible things happening in our country, so when i watch Charlottesville, to me it's very, very sad.

How can there be such division and hatred when America is the most prosperous it's ever been, thanks to bribing a company to open a factory in Wisconsin that will maybe make up its tax incentives in 25 years?

Still, when it comes right down to it, we're all Americans, whether we're trying to preserve a Confederate statue, driving a car into a crowd, or flying off the hood of a Dodge Charger Challenger driven by someone who finally gets to run over some protesters just like the meme said:

No matter our color, creed, religion or political party, we are all Americans first. We love our country, we love our God, we love our flag, we're proud of our country, we're proud of who we are, so we want to get this situation straightened out in Charlottesville, and we want to study it and we want to see what we're doing wrong as a country where things like this can happen.

Of course, some people love different flags, like the ones of Nazi Germany and the Army of Northern Virginia. They're Americans too, and Donald Trump certainly wasn't going to say anything unkind about them.

Trump then got on to the important business of doing his Veterans Administration bill thing; after saying he wants to heal the wounds of Charlottesville (whoever might have inflicted them, no need to say that) he signed the bill and completely ignored questions from reporters asking him whether he'd condemn white supremacists or call the vehicular attack "terrorism." Don't be silly, the car wasn't driven by a Muslim.

You know who actually did condemn the white supremacists? Mike Idiot Huckabee:

And Marco Rubio, too, who named the problem:

Update: A little later, Rubio followed up with a call for the president to call the Charlottesville attack what it really was:

And no, neither Huckabee nor Rubio would ever concede their party has a long history of dog whistles intended to inflame those very racists and get their votes. But at least they had a small thimbleful more honesty than the president, who just loves all Americans.

In conclusion, the President sure does wish people would stop being so hateful and violent, for whatever reason. Next, we'll look for a statement condemning the property damage done to that nice Dodge Charger Challenger by the flying bodies of protesters getting in its way.

Once upon a time... about ten years ago, a group of entirely ridiculous men burst onto the scene wearing stupid hats and telling men that wearing stupid hats and telling men that walking up to women in bars and insulting ("negging") them would get them laid. This did not last long, as women also had televisions and computers and were completely aware of these tricks as well, so when some ass came up to us in a bar and said "Hey, nice nails, are they real?" we would laugh and laugh and loudly announce "Oh my god, this guy just tried to neg me! Can you believe that shit? HEY EVERYONE, THIS GUY JUST TRIED TO NEG ME!" and then refer to him as "Mystery" the whole night.

Most of the men who tried that shit only did so a few times before realizing that it wasn't going to work, and thus moved on to other things. Perhaps things that did not involve furry hats and coming off as a huge creep. We may never know, because I would assume that those who tried it are now extremely embarrassed and would never, ever admit to this to us.

Still, there were a few men willing to eat that shit up, as well as some grifters willing to take advantage of that. Said grifters tended to be extremely misogynistic and seemed more like they were teaching men how to be as despised by women as they were than teaching them how to actually be liked by women.

Some of them, like Roosh V, a creepy weirdo who actually does live in his mom's basement, actively encouraged men to rape women who were intoxicated to the point of being obviously unable to consent.

However, even that branch of the PUA tree is wilting away. Many "self-help" style PUA forums like Nextasf and RSDnation are shutting down or have already shut down. In March, Chateau Heartiste, a batshit crazy PUA turned White Nationalist/Alt-Right blog was shut down by Wordpress. This week, rape advocate Roosh V (whom you may recall once called yours truly a "Wonkette typist/clown face, would not bang") announced that he was renouncing his PUA ways and devoting himself to Jesus. He explained to the forum he manages that he would no longer be allowing anyone to discuss premarital "fornication."

'Baby Geniuses' star Jon Voight took to Twitter early this morning to proclaim his undying love for Donald Trump, probably because there is no one left in his life who will listen to him talk about this, or anything else, in person. In this video rant, Voight encouraged members of the Republican Party, whom he apparently thinks are the only real citizens of the United States, to stand by Donald Trump and "acknowledge the truth" that he is the best President since Abraham Lincoln.

Part ONE:

People of the Republican Party, I know you will agree with me when I say our president has our utmost respect and our love. This job is not easy. For he's battling the left and their absurd words of destruction. I've said this once and I'll say this again. That our nation has been built on the solid ground from our forefathers, and there is a moral code of duty that has been passed on from President Lincoln. I'm here today to acknowledge the truth, and I'm here today to tell you my fellow Americans that our country…

Oh no, not our absurd words of destruction!

Part DEUX:

is stronger, safer, and with more jobs because our President has made his every move correct. Don't be fooled by the political left, because we are the people of this nation that is witnessing triumph. So let us stand with our president. Let us stand up for this truth, that President Trump is the greatest president since President Lincoln.

Does Jon Voight not know there have been... other presidents? Can he name them? Because really, it does not sound like it. Does he also not know that a very big chunk of the Republican Party actually does not care very much for Abraham Lincoln? Namely those defenders of Confederate statues that Trump called "very fine people?" Also, did he intentionally diss their beloved Ronald Reagan?

Who can know? Who can even tell what he is trying to say or why he is trying to say it. He doesn't appear to have tweeted much since 2016, so I'm guessing whoever's job it was to keep him from tanking his career quit. Either that... or after filming the seventh season of Ray Donovan, he found out it's going to be canceled or his character is getting killed off or something and he is now free to be a jackass? I don't know, I haven't watched the show, although my parents are very into it and mad that I haven't watched it. Literally all I know about it is that it has something to do with Boston, because they keep mentioning that to me like it's a selling point.

It seems useless at this point to note that the people who scream their faces off about how bad it is for Hollywood celebs to support liberal causes, and how they should keep their politics to themselves, etc. etc. make a way bigger deal than normal people do whenever a Big Time Hollywood Celebrity like Jon Voight or, uh, Scott Baio, supports their cause. Mostly because they're the only ones who have elected a reality TV star and the star of Bedtime for Bonzo (who by the way, also once practically ruined a perfectly good Bette Davis movie with his bad acting. Which is not to say that Dark Victory is not fantastic and probably the best thing to watch if you want to sob your face off, but he was very bad in it.) to run the country.

But we might as well do that anyway, because it actually never stops being funny.
