There are not “many sides” to hate, Mr. President.

In the wake of the violence during Saturday’s “Unite the Right” rally in Charolottesville, Virginia, President Trump gave a statement in which he condemned “in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides.”

But there are not “many sides” to hate, as Governor Andrew Cuomo says in his statement…

I and my fellow New Yorkers reject the hateful and ugly rhetoric and violence taking place in Charlottesville last night and into today. We condemn the language of white supremacy and ugly racist hate speech and stand appalled at the violence that has resulted in injury and death. There are not many sides to the violence of last night and today – these actions and this speech are a poison and serve to bring us all down to the lowest and most un-American of moments. I stand united with the many voices who call this out for what it is – hate, ignorance and bigotry and I join all who loudly speak out in truth and condemnation.
