(Zero Hedge) On Facebook this morning, Mitt Romney posted a rather forceful plea for President Trump to pursue “extreme remedial actions” regarding his Charlottesville comments saying that “whether he intended to or not, what he communicated caused racists to rejoice, minorities to weep, and the vast heart of America to mourn.”
Adding in a dose of dramatics, Romney explains that absent a forceful apology from Trump “there may commence an unraveling of our national fabric.”
But what we heard is now the reality, and unless it is addressed by the president as such, with unprecedented candor and strength, there may commence an unraveling of our national fabric.
In homes across the nation, children are asking their parents what this means. Jews, blacks, Hispanics, Muslims are as much a part of America as whites and Protestants. But today they wonder. Where might this lead? To bitterness and tears, or perhaps to anger and violence?
This is a defining moment for President Trump. But much more than that, it is a moment that will define America in the hearts of our children. They are watching, our soldiers are watching, the world is watching. Mr. President, act now for the good of the country.
Of course, while Trump’s comments probably could have been somewhat more carefully worded, the point obviously was that Romney, the mainstream media and others didn’t seem to feel the need to issue statements when antifa thugs attacked police officers and destroyed private property on inauguration day earlier this year.
Do angry, masked thugs running around with hammers not make people feel “unsafe” and lead to folks questioning whether “there may commence an unraveling of our national fabric?”…
