We read a lot of silly and stupid on Twitter. Heck, we cover both Chelsea Handler and Alyssa Milano on a fairly regular basis so you KNOW we’ve seen some exceptionally dense takes. That being said, Amy Siskind’s tweet about Trump ‘legitimizing’ neo-Nazis and their rallies is right up there.
A reminder: we didn't have neo-Nazi rallies until Trump took office – let alone in the light of day in our nation's capital! Their hate used to be unacceptable and hidden until Trump came along and legitimized them. https://t.co/ahQOpxnKkb

From USA Today:
Hundreds of white nationalists will gather in Lafayette Square on Sunday to mark the one-year anniversary of last August’s controversial Charlottesville rally.
Actually, it was like 25 … but whatever.
Wondering if she missed the protests over the weekend because the only people acting like a bunch of fascists were the Antifa idiots attacking cops and reporters. These people.
You’re an idiot.
History didn’t start with Barack Obama.

And history started the day your were born, dimwit. They were such an old joke they made fun of them in the Blues Brothers. How are you still employed with such a skewed view of history?

We HATE Illinois Nazis.
It's remarkable that you've managed to be so unaware of the racism just barely boiling under the surface of this country for the last 40 years. In fact it's totally unbelievable.

Nah, it’s all Trump’s fault.

Huh. Seems Amy has some strange history with Stephen Bannon.
You know, the guy who helped get Trump elected?

But you know, Nazis and stuff.
History won’t be kind to this tweet. As apparently you know zip on history.

Considering only 25 basement-dwelling, self-haters showed up to support white supremacy? Heh.
You seriously need to pull your head out of your ass. Not even remotely CLOSE to being true. Where exactly do you leftist idiots get your information?
