This is the story the progressive left and mainstream media would have everyone believe: Donald Trump got elected president and brought in with him the return of wanton White Nationalism.
“White Nationalism”, aka the Fake News-created “alt-right”, was kept in sleep mode for the past seven months but suddenly returned in vengeance in a rage of stunning violence yesterday in Charlottesville, Virginia.
So-called ‘White nationalists’ bearing torches, some of them decked out in KKK costume who brought about violence will find zero tolerance from civil society. Ditto for so-called ‘anti-fascists’ who insist that only black lives matter.
The Street Protest that has become the signature of the era left three dead, an innocent woman trying to cross a street, two police officers whose job it was to monitor the mob from a helicopter that crashed and burned in a field not far from the protest and left scores of others injured in Charlottesville.
Blowhards from both sides of the protest battle who take to the streets in protest should be held accountable for these tragic deaths. Warning: Just saying that will get you attacked, just as it is true that the closer anyone gets to the truth, the bigger the trouble they’ll find.
These are the trending headlines that will carry the day since the violence punctuated the Charlottesville tragedy:
- ‘Trump is widely condemned after he fails to specifically denounce white nationalism’ (The Blaze, Aug. 12, 2017);
- ‘Make America Hate Again’ (Drudge Report, Aug. 12, 2017)
These are the headlines that will endure until Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel proves the Trump-Russia collusion conspiracy.
The ‘white nationals’ who set out on their march to protest taking down Robert E. Lee’s statue became part of the left’s agenda.
This should be a lesson for all blowhards on the march.
In the horrific carnage the protest left, everyone from Senator Marco Rubio to the MSM and Black Lives Matter are blaming Trump:
“President Donald Trump was widely condemned Saturday after he failed to specifically denounce the white nationalism driving Saturday’s protests in Charlottesville, Virginia. (The Blaze, August 12, 2017)
“During a press conference earlier in the day, Trump blamed “many sides” for the violence and urged Americans to love one another.
“However, the statement didn’t go far enough for most, considering that members of the “Alt-Right” and white nationalists are responsible for the demonstrations that led to Saturday’s deadly protests.
“National leaders, prominent Americans and media members on both sides of the political spectrum were quick to urge Trump to go further with his comments:
Unsurprisingly CNN came out on the attack against Trump for the way he described the horrific event that left three dead, and 19 injured after the car cash near the “Unite the Right” rally.
“We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides,” Trump said during a short statement from his private golf club in New Jersey. “It has been going on for a long time in our country—not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama. It has been going on for a long, long time. It has no place in America.” (Dan Merica, CNN, Aug. 12, 2017)
“The President did not mention white nationalists and the alt-right movement in his remarks, and later called for a “study” of the “situation.”
“At least one person was killed and 19 injured when a speeding car slammed into another car that was navigating through a throng of counterprotesters, according to a statement released on the City of Charlottesville’s verified Twitter account.”
With the country still reeling in shock at the Charlottesville news, CNN took swipes at Trump for billing the event as a press conference without taking any questions, and for purportedly “touting” economic improvements.
“Trump billed the event as a press conference but failed to take any questions on Saturday. Reporters attempted to ask the President whether he condemns white nationalists or if he considers the car slamming into counterprotesters terrorism. Trump, in the past, has been quick to label foreign events terrorism and has slammed fellow politicians for not quickly labeling attacks as terrorism. (CNN)
“At one point the President also touted economic improvements, saying the nation’s unemployment rate was the lowest in 17 years. Trump said he was dismayed by the violence: “we have so many incredible things happening in our country, so when I watch Charlottesville, to me it is very, very sad.”
“Trump closed his remarks on Charlottesville urging people to remember “no matter our color, creed, religion or political party, we are all Americans first.
“We love our country, we love our God, we love our flag, we are proud of our country, we are proud of who we are,” he said. “So, we want to get this situation straightened out in Charlottesville and we want to study it, and we want to see what we are doing wrong as a country where things like this can happen.”
CNN and the mainstream media were antagonized by Trump stating that “this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides” has “no place in America”.
Their narrative leaves no room for anyone other than the “white nationalists” and “alt-right”.
That’s been their story all along and they’re sticking to it.
“Asked what Trump meant by saying “on many sides,” a White House official also pointed a finger at the counterprotesters. (CNN)
“The President was condemning hatred, bigotry and violence from all sources and all sides. There was violence between protesters and counterprotesters today,” the official said.
“Demonstrators clashed on the streets of Charlottesville on Saturday morning ahead of a white nationalist rally, with counter-protesters and right-wing nationalist groups converging on the college town in the latest chapter in the United States’ debate over race and identity.
“The protests were precipitated by the city’s government deciding to remove symbols of its confederate past, including a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. Similar protests happened in May when New Orleans officials decided to remove confederate statues.
“The White House said Saturday that it was in touch with Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s office and that White House homeland security adviser Thomas Bossert’s team has been in touch with local authorities.
“Earlier Saturday, Trump, who is on his 17-day vacation in New Jersey, urged people to “come together as one” in response to the protests but did not explicitly mention the white nationalist origins of the conflict.
“We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for,” he wrote on Twitter. “There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come together as one!”
“Trump, who also signed a Veterans Affairs health care bill Saturday afternoon, later tweeted: “Am in Bedminster for meetings & press conference on V.A. & all that we have done, and are doing, to make it better-but Charlottesville sad!”
Over the next few weeks count on Trump being blamed for not calling the Charlottesville violence a terrorist attack. Count on the progressive left claiming that Robert E. Lee returned from the grave for ‘America’s Civil War, Part 11’.
Rumors abound that Trump will be physically ‘taken out ‘before Christmas. But the assassination bullet, the one that will see him accused of touting white nationalism, was fired off yesterday.
Meanwhile, the progressive left’s narrative has come full circle.
But by and large, the masses remain totally unaware that the clang of steel bars imprisoning Western society slammed down on the same day.
