When all that’s left is fear and hate

Since news broke a few days ago that the President’s former personal attorney had pled guilty to numerous felonies, naming the President himself as a co-conspirator, things haven’t been looking so good for the Trump administration.

Is it possible that our local white supremacists don’t realize that not all Civil War memorials celebrate the Confederacy?
