The “of course” brigade appears

Now Trump’s people are dutifully lining up to say of course he condemned the Nazis in Charlottesville, it’s obvious that he did, he was unambiguous about it.

The White House said in a statement Sunday that when President Trump condemned “all forms of violence, bigotry and hatred” that were on display in Charlottesville this weekend “of course that includes white supremacists, KKK, Neo-Nazi and all extremist groups.”

Of course. Of coursey course.

But inclusion of Nazis wasn’t what was needed. That “and all extremist groups” at the end wasn’t and isn’t what was needed. “Everybody was to blame” isn’t what’s needed. A robust condemnation of racism and racist hatred and incitement of racist hatred is what’s needed. … Read the rest

The “patriarchs” thing was an accident – a typo for “patriots.” What he actually said:

The memories of those who perished in the Warsaw Uprising cry out across the decades, and few are clearer than the memories of those who died to build and defend the Jerusalem Avenue crossing.

The New York Times talked to Steve Bannon yesterday, and what he said is blood-chilling. He could be reading from a volume of collected rants by Goebbels. It would be gross if he were just the Breitbart guy, but he’s now at the center of the executive branch.

“The media should be embarrassed and humiliated and keep its mouth shut and just listen for awhile,” Mr. Bannon said during a telephone call.

“I want you to quote this,” Mr. Bannon added. “The media here is the opposition party. They don’t understand this country. They still do not understand why Donald Trump is

In what direction do we pray?

With his usual modesty, Trump declared himself our new object of “patriotic devotion.”

President Trump has officially declared the day of his inauguration a national day of patriotism.

Trump’s inaugural address on Friday frequently referred to patriotism as the salve that would heal the country’s divisions. “When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice,” Trump said from the steps of the Capitol after being sworn in as president.

Later that day, Trump’s press secretary, Sean Spicer, said that naming a national day of patriotism was among the executive actions that Trump took in his first few hours as president.

Ein Volk, ein Reich, ein Führer.

On Monday, the paperwork was filed with the federal
