Rubio attacked for not attacking 'Antifa'
The far right is angry with Sen. Marco Rubio for condemning white nationalist groups in Charlottesville -- and faulting President Trump for not doing so more clearly – while not pointing a finger at the far left Antifa.
“McCain, Romney and Rubio join the Republicans for Antifa Club,” reads a headline on Breitbart News.
Across social media, Rubio was excoriated for his remarks, which drew bipartisan, mainstream praise. Rubio said there was no equivalency between the two sides in Charlottesville.
"Mr. President, you can't allow #WhiteSupremacists to share only part of blame. They support idea which cost nation & world so much pain," Rubio wrote on Twitter. "The #WhiteSupremacy groups will see being assigned only 50% of blame as a win.W e can not allow this old evil to be resurrected."
Do you understand who #Antifa are? Google history. Look on YouTube. As a Cuban-American you should be the 1st to denounce publically!— The Real Sheralee™ (@Sheraleeable) August 21, 2017
Rubio is responsible now for any further violence used by antifa/democrats! And the dead cops in Florida tonight is on his head!— America First! (@pscully1812) August 19, 2017
