The trending “official narrative” in mainstream media/social media on Monday was that Donald Trump was directly responsible for Charlottesville. The city’s mayor, a life-long Democrat (Michael Signer) claimed that President Trump had nourished the movement (the white nationalist thingy) that finally led to violence and the alleged terrorist attack in Charlottesville (the car that plowed into a group of Antifa/BLM was driven by a “white supremacist”). Michael Signer has said earlier on Monday about the POTUS:
“Look at the campaign he ran. … Look at the intentional courting both, on the one hand, of all these white supremacists, white nationalist groups like that, anti-Semitic groups. And then look on the other hand, the repeated failure to step up, condemn, denounce, silence, you know, put to bed all those different efforts.”
Now, a little bit of history: let’s remember how back in 2016, a guy named Micah Xavier Johnson, a black radical and a BLM aficionado killed five police officers in Dallas and injured nine. This heinous terrorist act occurred in the aftermath of Barry Obama condemning the police shootings in Minnesota/Louisiana (read Philando Castile and Alton Sterling). Barack Obama claimed that the police killings were not isolated incidents, but, let me quote:
They are symptomatic of challenges within our criminal justice system, the racial disparities that appear across the system year after year, and the resulting lack of trust that exists between law enforcement and too many of the communities they serve.”
I don’t understand why President Trump did not condemn the white supremacists, BLM and ANTIFA by name. They are ALL hate groups and it would have given the left one less dishonest talking point.
The Democrats support every type of ethnic nationalism except that of white people… so the Ku Klux Klan and/or Neo-Nazi’s ( by the way, Nazi comes from National Sozialismus/Socialism, i.e. Nazis were left wing just like fascists in Italy, not far right) do not have a political party to belong to. The Democrats have made it clear that ‘the white guy is not invited to the multi-cultural picnic’.
They have portrayed the Republicans / Conservatives as the party for ‘white‘ folks and deliberately conflated Western Civilization itself and being white with being racist (unless you identify with progressive values which means you accept that Western civilization is evil and you acknowledge your ‘white privilege’). So basically they set up white folks to be the ‘bad guys’ and the unifying force for all other minority groups to unite and fight against as a common cause, which is a key Saul Alinksy tactic directly from his book Rules for Radicals.
Speaking of the POTUS declaration on Saturday, let’s remember how Barry Obama came out 5 minutes after a conflict and took sides (BLM’s side) but never reneged on his comments when we found out they were wrong . Donald Trump did the right thing by condemning all sides when we really don’t know EXACTLY what happened and why.
Lets be clear on this, there are roughly 5000 to 8000 KKK members, and maybe that same number of neo-Nazis in the country of (at least) 320,000,000 people.
The left is playing this up because they HAVE to play this up: they have no policies to run on, their ideas are old and tired, and the ONLY thing they have is race and identity politics; that’s why they are making a fuss about 0.0002% of the US population.
President Trump condemned the violence from all sides. Former President Barry Obama invited the Black Lives Matter to the White House. There is no comparison between the two. One threw gas on the fire and made things worse, while the other one condemned everyone involved.
