Obama reacts to Charlottesville violence. Who cares?

I'm sitting at work watching CNN and they're talking about Obama's response to the violence in Charleston.

My question is does anybody remember them ever asking Bush what he thought about the violence in Ferguson?

Why is Obama's opinion of what happened in Charleston of any concern? He's not the president anymore he's never going to be again unless they're just trying to undermine Trump.

1. It's Charlottesville, genius.

And apparently YOU care enough to post about it, even if you're unable to get your geography straight.
But now that I think about it, shit, you only missed by two states. That qualifies you as a deep-thinker at DI.

18. In the interest of full disclosure.

The autocorrect on my phone decided Charlottesville was Charleston. The original title said Charleston.

Having said that he/she/they/it was totally deflecting

16. The KKK supports the GOP now

Here are some facts for the conservatives to ignore http://www.vox.com/2014/12/10/7372495/ku-klux-klan-republican

The researchers wanted to capture the role that the Klan organizations themselves played, which is a tricky methodological problem to solve. There are a lot of other reasons why some counties might have seen more growth in support for Republicans, some of which could also explain the presence of a Klan chapter. For example, maybe a county that's just particularly racist both was fertile ground for the Klan and was less likely to vote for Democrats when they started backing civil rights — both had the same cause, but the Klan chapter didn't cause the increase in Republican support.

To take into account underlying racial animus, McVeigh et al controlled for the counties' levels of support for George Wallace, who made an explicitly segregationist third-party presidential bid in 1968. They also controlled for the level of support for Goldwater; his run galvanized Southern support for Republicans before the 1964-66 growth in Klan chapters and so is another factor that needs to be taken into account. Finally, the study controlled for changes in counties' racial makeup (counties whose black populations grew presumably saw less growth in Republican support), their level of economic prosperity and education (since Republican support is positively correlated with income and education), and whether the county had an NAACP chapter (which could have provoked the KKK to launch a branch in response).

They conclude that having a Klan chapter present was associated with a 2 percent bigger increase in Republican support from 1960 to 1972, a 3.7 percent bigger increase from 1960 to 1980, a 4.9 percent bigger increase from 1960 to 1992, and a 3.4 percent bigger increase from 1960 to 2000.How could this have worked?
The GOP is dominant in the South due to the KKK. The GOP is the party that the KKK is currently supporting according to this study

One of their leaders recently served in congress until the day he died.
If you want to pull up stuff from 75 years ago then you have to face the inconvenient facts that go with it.
A real lawyer would know something like that.
