Although President Donald J. Trump never indicated that he supports racism, or the KKK, or white nationalists, the liberal community continues to push the narrative that Trump is part of the hatred that fuels those very small groups.
Actor Mark Ruffalo has included himself in an event that professes to aim for “sustained disobedience.” Ruffalo, along with a group of activists, is embarked on a 10-day march from Charlottesville to Washington, D.C.
The March, which began on Monday, Aug. 28, will arrive in D.C. on Wednesday, Sep. 6. The 111-mile “March to Confront White Supremacy” is another demand that the president is removed from office. It has been organized by activist groups who are using the violence between protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, earlier this month as an excuse to make the demand.
Ruffalo proudly stood among them and posted images of himself starting out on the trek to Twitter and Instagram.
“Marching into Trump Country to confront white supremacy,” he wrote on Twitter.
On Instagram, he proclaimed: “Marching with my brave brothers and sisters.”
In a statement, Ruffalo said he was marching in memory of Heather Heyer, the counter-protester who was tragically killed by a man who drove a vehicle into a crowd during the Charlottesville events.
Ruffalo continued in his statement:
“Now, we have a President who called participants in the neo-Nazi and white supremacist march in Charlottesville ‘some very fine people.’ Enough is enough. White supremacy must be called out for what it is and defeated. Its very existence is based on violence and is antithetical to American values.”
The march has been joined by “hundreds of people,” according to reports. Once the activists reach D.C, they plan to hold a rally calling for the end of white supremacy.

Ruffalo, a liberal actor who counts Michael Moore among his friends, has attended other protests, most recently in front of Trump Tower on Aug. 17 to decry President Trump’s response to Charlottesville. While at that event, Ruffalo and Moore patted each other on the back over their individual efforts. Ruffalo even thanked Moore for his “years of service and sacrifice,” making it sound as if Moore’s liberal agenda was akin to some kind of heroism, likening him to a soldier.
