UN secretary-general joins heads of US army and marines in condemning Donald Trump's Charlottesville response

Added: 17.08.2017 3:48 | 17 views | 0 comments


Donald Trump sparked outrage on Tuesday by saying "both sides" were to blame for the unrest in Charlottesville at the weekend, while prominent far-right figures praised him for his "honesty". The secretary-general of the United Nations tweeted in reproach, and the heads of the US army and marines all issued statements distancing themselves from the rhetoric of the commander in chief. The Army doesn't tolerate racism, extremism, or hatred in our ranks. It's against our Values and everything we've stood for since 1775.— GEN Mark A. Milley (@ArmyChiefStaff) August 16, 2017 No place for racial hatred or extremism in @USMC. Our core values of Honor, Courage, and Commitment frame the way Marines live and act.— Robert B. Neller (@GenRobertNeller) August 15, 2017 Racism, xenophobia, anti-Semitism & Islamophobia are poisoning our societies. We must stand up against them. Every time. Everywhere.— António Guterres (@antonioguterres) August 15, 2017 By doubling down on his original statement on Saturday in which he equated the actions of white supremacist groups and those protesting them, the president effectively wiped away his statement a day earlier when he branded members of the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis and white supremacists as "criminals and thugs." During a press conference in the lobby of  Trump Tower in New York, he angrily blamed liberal groups, calling them the "alt-left", in addition to white supremacist for the violence. Some of those protesting the rally to save a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee were "also very violent," he said. Former KKK leader David Duke was delighted with the president's comments.   "Thank you President Trump for your honesty & courage to tell the truth about Charlottesville & condemn the leftist terrorists in BLM/Antifa," he tweeted, referring to the Black Lives Matter movement and an anti-fascist group. Thank you President Trump for your honesty & courage to tell the truth about #Charlottesville & condemn the leftist terrorists in BLM/Antifa https://t.co/tTESdV4LP0— David Duke (@DrDavidDuke) August 15, 2017 Richard Spencer,  a prominent "alt-right" activist who was at the Charlottesville rally, praised Mr Trump and blamed police for failing to prevent the violence. "Trump's statement was fair and down to earth. #Charlottesville could have been peaceful, if police did its job," he tweeted. The Daily Stormer, a neo-Nazi website which moved to the so-called Dark Web on Tuesday because its registration to use the open internet was revoked, posted an article entitled: "Trump Defends Charlottesville Nazis Against Jew Media Lies, Condemns Antifa Terrorists."  The real Trump has stood up... again. It was one of the most surreal and depressing presidential press conferences: https://t.co/ptbctZmF0E— Dan Rather (@DanRather) August 15, 2017 But the overwhelming reaction was one of outrage.  "By saying he is not taking sides, Donald Trump clearly is. When David Duke and white supremacists cheer, you're doing it very very wrong," said Chuck Schumer, the Democrat leader of the Senate.  Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, in whose state the violence occurred, said "this was not both sides".  "Our Commonwealth and nation are still reeling from one of the largest outpourings of hatred and violence we have experienced in recent history. We need real leadership, starting with our President." .@realDonaldTrump: This was not "both sides" pic.twitter.com/NC05csEFd9— Terry McAuliffe (@TerryMcAuliffe) August 15, 2017 Virginia Senator Tim Kaine said on Twitter that the Charlottesville violence "was fuelled by one side: white supremacists spreading racism, intolerance & intimidation. Those are the facts." Senator Brian Schatz of Hawaii said on Twitter that he no longer views Trump as his president. "As a Jew, as an American, as a human, words cannot express my disgust and disappointment," Mr Schatz said. "This is not my president." There has to be room for people of all political stripes among the coalition of the sane. We all need to take our country back together.— Brian Schatz (@brianschatz) August 15, 2017 Republicans were also quick to criticise Mr Trump's comments. "We must be clear. White supremacy is repulsive. This bigotry is counter to all this country stands for. There can be no moral ambiguity," House Speaker Paul Ryan said. Florida Senator Marco Rubio, who had already condemned Mr Trump's initial response to the violence, issued a series of tweets denouncing the white supremacist groups. "Mr. President, you can't allow #WhiteSupremacists to share only part of blame. They support idea which cost nation & world so much pain ," he said.  Mr. President,you can't allow #WhiteSupremacists to share only part of blame.They support idea which cost nation & world so much pain 5/6— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) August 15, 2017 Congressman Will Hurd, who has a black father and white mother, told CNN about how his dad had experienced racism while growing up in Texas. Noting Mr Duke's praise of the president, he said: “I don't think anybody should be looking at getting props from a Grand Dragon of the KKK as any kind of sign of success." Do you think @realDonaldTrump@POTUS saying "both sides are to blame" in #Charlottesville makes him a racist supporter? Yes or no?— xoxo, Gaga (@ladygaga) August 15, 2017 Outside the political arena,  NBA superstar LeBron James tweeted: "Hate has always existed in America. Yes we know that but Donald Trump just made it fashionable again!" That press conference kinda just blew up my brain. Everyone should watch that entire thing from beginning to end. It's truly shocking.— Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) August 15, 2017 Talk show host Jimmy Kimmel tweeted: "I haven't seen anything that crazy since Tyson bit Holyfield." Hollywood actor Don Cheadle called Mr Trump "dangerous and demented" and needed "to be removed" from office. Others noted the expressions of his aides during the press conference, including new chief-of-staff John Kelly.

Sony's E3 2017 Was Pretty Much E3 2016 Version 2.0

Added: 14.06.2017 5:04 | 16 views | 0 comments

It was Don Cheadle in Ocean's Thirteen who said it best. "You don't do the same gag twice, you do the next gag." Sony tried to capture the magic of E3 2016 again this year and they failed. Sony is earning the reputation of a publisher that can tease games great, but can't deliver in a timely fashion. Say what you want about Microsoft's press conference, but at least they came prepared with release dates for their big Xbox One games. Sony came with trailers and a lack of dates.
