Did God create right and wrong, and whether He did, is he bound by it?
The famous " Is something good because God says it is, or is it good because it is good" question.

God is good, or more correct: God is goodness.
The embodiment of good because in Him there is no lacking and bad or evil or wrong is not a thing as much as it is an absence of good/ right.

What is right is a byproduct of God being existence, what is wrong is an absence of that good. ie: an absence of God.

Here is an interesting independent news blip that mentions the actual person who applied for the Nazi's to protest in Charlotteville VA and who he is linked too... shortly after the beginning segment

I don't know that the video blogger's narrative is, at this point, much more than speculation being spun. Read what people who knew him well say - he sounds like a nut in search of a movement to raise hell with:

But never underestimate political operatives - and those who would use whoever/however for their secret motives.
