Evening "news" abuzz about Barcelona, and, as usual, ran all their stock footage of other truck attacks in France, Germany and England....but not the vehicle attack in Charlottesville. Why is a vehicle attack by a white, Christian, bigot, treated differently than the same sort of attack by Muslims?

Meanwhile, Trump complains about the removal of statues honoring traitors who took up arms against the United States:

"Sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our beautiful statues and monuments," Trump said in a series of tweets.

As I recall, when the Soviet Union fell, statues of Lenin were torn down, to the applause of the US. Statues of Ceausescu were torn down when his regime fell. How many statues of Nazis hold places of honor in Germany? Yet USian traitors are supposed to be honored as exemplars of USian culture?
