So you're saying some/all of this group of 31 was in Charlottesville? I was under the impression that Charlottesville was a whole different crew, and a lot of these Patriot Fronters were still in school.

What were you doing when they were teaching English comprehension in grade school!!?

"These are some of the same people who committed terrorism in Charlottesville without using automatic weapons!"

In this sentence, Carlotta is referring to "the people in Charlottesville" as being those who committed terrorism without using automatic weapons

To read it that way you are reading it takes some next level lack of comprehension....


Now go help your uncle Jack off his horse!!
