Just a day after the Senate unanimously passed a joint resolution condemning the acts violence and domestic terrorism by white supremacists and neo-Nazis over the weekend of August 11 in Charlottesville, Virginia, the House of Representatives unanimously passed it by a voice vote Tuesday evening.

Now it is up to President Donald Trump to officially condemn the actions of white supremacists by signing the joint resolution when it reaches his desk. The White House, however, will not immediately commit to signing it.

10. Just like when T gave his "apology" for his birtherism the base knew he was lying.

Racist on racist love bonds can not be severed.

2. It's a rather easy test really

Ask yourself "Do I support anything Nazis* support?". Obviously the answer should be NO. If you find yourself answering YES go look in the mirror and say 10 times "I support Nazis". If you don't reassess yourself or your worldview doesn't change, you are a Nazi.

*Nazi collectively covers all right wing extremist groups. Hey, WE did ask to dumb everything down.

If any person has to stop for a second to ponder if they should condemn nazis and the KKK or not, there is a damn problem!

"No announcements at this time."

9. Ya beat me to it. *SHAME* that a President would have this against him. He calls

everybody else "disgraceful" - well, except said hate groups & PUTIN - at the drop of the hat but has to be prodded for *this*!


That said, does the Resolution need to be *SIGNED* since it's Congress's own thing?!

11. If he does sign it, he will have a off the rails rally

explaining why he signed it and complain that all kinds of groups should be on this resolution. Or he won't sign it stating the same thing. or he will come up with his own resolution

14. White supremacists are all Dump has left

And he's terrified of them. He knows damn well they're violence-prone; he even encouraged them at campaign rallies. Now, he doesn't want to be their target.

He didn't create the monster, but he enabled it.

This is one of those "no brainer" pieces that shouldn't be a problem. Just as "terrorism is bad" - you don't want to be the person who's all "well...some terrorism is good..."

21. Since when does Trumpy hold true to a contract?

Why would Congress EVER assume that what Trumpy signs has any bearing on what he does? This is a silly exercise. Sure, Trumpy will pay homage to Nazis by dragging his feet before shuffling up to the signing table. And yes, he'll sign the resolution, which is not legally binding. And then he'll go about his business as if the signing never happened. He does what he wants, and NO ONE has stopped him.

29. It is true that in the TOS of Star Trek was never the line "Beam me up Scotty"... but...

There was one line that was close, and even better: "Scotty, beam us up!"
Not since the blatant racism I observed as a child in the late 1960's have I wanted all of the more enlightened sort to be able to warp out of orbit enroute a more perfect union.
Excuse my sentiment here, but I honestly thought we as a nation had gotten far past all this shit.
