    She was fat and it was hot. If you learned that while following the “alt-right” then they are right in this instance. Anyone who has seen a picture of her and can google can see these facts. Your alt left conspiracies don’t change that.

    I provided my source. It was a CBS news video of her mother.

    You show the maturity by admitting a mistake and then in the second sentence you pat yourself on the back for doing it while taking a pot shot at me.

    Tony's version can't be right. He said something happened when it doesn't even start until October. I didn't defend a white supremacist. I watched a video of something and typed out what happened. The problem here is you guys are convicting someone without trial on account of his beliefs. I am evaluating the evidence available. Our freedom in America is supposed to allow everyone freedom of expression even if they are bigoted. Being bigoted does not strip an American of their due process. Being aware of an individual's civil liberties doesn't mean I am defending a white supremacist. Someone professing that they think racism is bad doesn't make them a better person.

    Jesus H Christ is right. I am just confused. I am just confused because Tony said this was already ruled a murder and that he believes in due process but it seems this trial hasn't even started.

    How mad are you here? Look at my posts leading up. Look at the difference in our tones. I am calmly explaining what I see. Then I follow up with questions for you. You throw a fit here and ask me a bunch of rhetorical questions to set yourself up to condescend me. You, like a few others, really seem to be emboldened by the lack of individual accountability that comes with mob mentality. Psychology 101.

    Dude cmon haha. Her death wasn't a mystery where her body was left out in the forrest for weeks before being found. She was being treated very shortly after the crash. Where is the court case where it was ruled a homicide though? What was sentenced to? This is a very high profile case. Suprised is hasn't been all over the news.

    LOL. As much as I'd love to respond back to all of you - who have all chose to get personal towards me instead of address my points - I am going to let it go. The pettiness out here really is jarring though. Look at my post. It's all about the event at hand. All the responses are personal. Bringing up old topics. Jokes. Mocking. Snarl words. Over and over again. It's about ideas it's not about people and trying to tear them down. You guys can all trash me on my way out but I do hope one day you gain tolerance and learn to embrace diversity - in all forms of expression - in a way that extends past just saying you believe in it.

    Where's the court case article? I asked you for an update...haven't seen one. I know you don't believe in due process but this goes to court.

    1.) Again you're nitpicking. To what avail? I don't know. 20 is a legal adult and they can vote regardless of whether I call them a kid or not. Not sure why you bring up voting or guns for that matter as they have nothing to do with this. 2.) I don't have a "heart attack angle." I quoted the person's mother who is apparently an alt right person too now. Blunt chest trauma can lead to heart attacks. So that doesn't negate the person's mothers reveal of the heart attack death in any way. 3.) I find it weird that a moderator of a forum site would find it troubling that someone would spend 20 minutes on a forum site but that's your opinion. I guess partaking in a forum is only cool if you think exactly like the media raised you too. God forbid someone be able to express an original thought without being labeled troubling. I am not sure how your negative assessment of me relates to this topic, so I'll get back to the topic at hand since personal assessments of people that are not involved in this event wouldn't add anything to the topic at hand. The guys car was completely surround by violent people yelling, closing in on him and ultimately destructing his windows allowing outside access for the mob to enter his car. If you could take off your partisan glasses for a minute and evaluate the event for what actually happened, you will see the same. I'd like to see how you'd react in the situation. If these people want to put themselves in that position so be it but he reacted like anyone else would regardless of his hateful opinions. 4.) You can't take politics out of it because without politics your point is null. No one on this board is espousing white supremacist views. No one is disagreeing with you that bigotry is a bad thing. No one needs to hear it for the 50 millionth time. Why you feel the need to bring it up over and over again I don't know but it seems with most leftists, their engagement politically is just trying to inflate their own moral image and tear down anyone who disagrees with them in the slightest. We live in the best country in the world. No matter what race, religion or creed you are there is a wealth of opportunity here. It's pretty obvious that our country is being conned into a divide and conquer strategy. So keep hating and attacking people who think differently than you. That's exactly what the people holding us down want you to do. Don't focus on our government bombing civilians all over the world, don't focus on our campaign finance environment, don't focus on the consolidation of corporations, don't focus on the banks, don't focus on foreign countries buying our politicians. One day the partisan politics and identity politics are going to come to an end because there will be no more power for the government to usurp. That'll be a sad day.

    **President Trump 2018 Thread**

    First off, your link didn't discover that at all. Your link projected that. Unfortunately, it's your reading comprehension that "doesn't stand up to fact based scrutiny." Furthermore, the third paragraph says "In addition to traveling in order to save money, some medical tourists plan trips because they want to have a treatment that’s not approved in the United States or because they’ll have a shorter wait by going abroad." Yesterday, I was asked why Americans would go to Europe for procedures, I said it was because of... "Regulation. FDA doesn't allow certain procedures." So your article is backing my point. I went on to say it's great that we have global options for our healthcare. I am in no way opposed of American's using every option they have medically or cosmetically. I am all for free will whether it's local or international. However, let's pretend your mischaracterized and baseless argument was true (which it isn't, as you say, "anyway you cut it"). Statistics alone don't provide any clear cut evidence on a subject that is very nuanced on account of our economic climate being so hyper litigious and over regulated and with our society being the way it is. But regardless, if you're going to try and use statistics to try and confirm your beliefs, at least understand the absolute basics of statistics. America has ~340 million people and we are the most advanced culture in the world. Canada has ~35 million people and ~20% of them live in the Artic circle. Comparing any outcome on an aggregate basis (as opposed to rate or per capita basis) when the population sizes aren't even slightly comparable in size or demographic is absolutely ridiculous. Your use of statistics here applied to baseball: Adam Engel has 68 hits in 2017 & 2018. Adam Eaton Eaton has 37 hits in 2017 & 2018. Therefore, Adam Engel is the better hitter.

    In this corner of the internet, everything that goes wrong in this country is Trump by way of white supremacists and/or Russia. There's a difference between "defend" as you put and calling a spade a spade. Just because I disagree with the left wings spin on something doesn't mean I support the subject of their ire. It means I disagree with their narrative and media orchestrated reality. Nothing more. The man driving the car was 20-years-old. He is a kid. He drove across the country to meet with a white supremacist group. I am not sure why you nitpicked me calling him lonely, but I think it's fair to classify him as lonely given he drove hours and hours to be with a white supremacist group. He's pretty clearly a demented kid who didn't fit in growing up. Anyways, can we please slow down and look at the evidence? Preferably without trying to call independent thinkers names or racist if they can make their own conclusions without the media spoonfeeding them. Let's look at it without the political biases coming in because from a legal standpoint an individual 's beliefs or shortcomings would not be in consideration. Only the actual event would matter. For this event, there is a lot of video. So let's use those videos. If you try and watch the video without considering who any of the people involved are, this is what you will see. 1.) 3 cars are driving through tight alley/road. An angry crowd with bats and masks are surrounding them and chanting "our streets." 2.) The cars are moving slowly but as they near intersection, the congestion in the street slows them even more as there is very little room for the cars with the crowd dominating the street. 3.) The trailing car is then attacked by a man with a club of sorts from the drivers back side as the driver reaches the blockage. The driver breaks in response. 4.) After the first attacker hits the car, the car becomes completely surrounded by the crowd and the mob starts to break the windows of the driver. The driver is clearly in danger. The driver drives straight ahead into the car in an effort to leave the commotion where he is the target of an angry group that outnumbers him 50 to 1 at least. 5.) In the chaos and commotion, someone died and others were hurt. As far as the women who died, she died of a heart attack. That is really awful. Here is her mother talking about her dying of a heart attack: https://www.nbcnews.com/video/heather-heyer-s-mom-delivers-message-about-karma-to-white-nationalists-1028340803735 Sticking to the facts, let's start a narrative of the story based on the facts. An obese person was taking part in mob action in the middle of the afternoon on a day that the temperature topped at 102. She is over weight - People who are fat are more susceptible to heart attacks. It is 100 degrees out - heat is hard on the heart. Taking part in a mob (ie - criminal behavior) will heighten someone's anxiety. A verbal altercation can even trigger a cardiac attack when someone is already a candidate for coronary failure. Looking at this situation with the facts that are available doesn't make you racist. It doesn't make you alt right. It doesn't make you anything other than someone using their free will to diagnose a siutation. I personally think both sides were despicable but I am looking at this without consideration for the background of the people. For instance, when I drive home work tonight, if I hit a registered sex offender on the highway, he wouldn't be in the wrong because he is documented as scum of the earth, I would be in the wrong. Because despite his sick actions/thoughts, I was in the wrong. People's hateful beliefs do not determine the outcome of a legal situation. The actual occurrence is what matters. Side note - what happened to the driver of this vehicle? Can anyone provide a link that has an update on his court case? It seems he was arrested and there has been no reporting since. I can't imagine there has been no update since January.

    Republicans who aren't in office in all of the major cities are suppose to be the ones stopping it? One person died in Charlottesville and the person was attacking someone's car. It's not a tragedy. It's scumbag on criminal death. No one cares about these white surpremacists. They wield no power whatsoever and are virtually nonexistent. The only reason people know about them is because left wingers are obsessed with bringing them because it fits there "everyone is racist" narrative. Watch the video. Some chubby, lonely and demented kid is driving his car in an alley when a bunch of protesters started attacking his car. He gets scared and a protester died. This isn't exactly the Nice attack. Now do you states are the best sample here? I never said anything about states. Check out cities and come back.
