Let's be clear. There is no "both sides" to Charlottesville.
Yes, we have free speech in this country and while it's specifically to stop the government from stopping us from saying whatever we want, let's not get in the weeds on that one like we always do.
Let's look at it like this: A group of people whose main tenet is that whites are superior and the earth should be "cleansed" of everyone who isn't white were marching around chanting "Jews will not replace us" as well as "blood and soil" (yes, a Nazi thing, just FYI) all while rallying around a statue of a confederate general.
Many things the president said about Charlottesville were incorrect, from who had permits, to the implication that you need them to protest to begin with. He even lied about the winery, which his son owns and isn't anywhere near the largest in the country.
But "both sides" were at fault?
Just think it through from a moral perspective.
