Wait a minute. I’m not finished. I’m not finished, fake news. That was a horrible day.-Trump 8-15-2017
Courage under fire
Yesterday (8-15-2017) President Donald Trump courageously made it clear that both the violent fringes on the left and right have shared culpability for how Charlottesville, VA ended up going down. In case you aren’t paying attention that’s one dead citizen, 2 dead cops, mass injuries and a strike at the heart of our civility.
He noted clearly that their were two sides that are currently spewing hate and discord in our country. I believe there are many more that are just gravitating toward the two different sides. The left can’t seem to accept any responsibility at all or even comprehend what actually happened. Many Rino types in the GOP are trying to distance themselves from the hateful rhetoric the MSM is pushing. Others are trading insults against the president for airtime and faux celebrity status. Helping to distort and deflect attention away from the bare bones facts of what happened.
The facts: a group of violent mobs comprised of Antifa, BLM, and other assorted groups and regular individuals attacked a group of neo nazis, white supremacist, and regular individual people who had a permit to march that day in support of keeping civil war statues and possibly promoting some racist causes as well from what I can tell. These leftist mobs came to shut down the march and deny the marchers free speech. You may not like the people who were planning to march with their permit, I would not have been in attendance. But what we think of them is irrelevant, they have a right to march peacefully and a right to speak. Even if they are as dumb as F*#k and disgusting to behold. These groups have a right to assemble under our laws, free from violent attacks. The mobs that showed up with no permit and attacked the group as they dispersed are equal in blame for all that happened that day. These groups also attack crowds of conservatives who aren’t racists. These are the same groups that shut down speakers at campuses with violence. The reality is these are violent, fascist, sedition actors, who are committing federal crimes and are on the left. And Trump had the balls to point that fact out. Shining a light on all the guilty parties who actually want the violence to continue is the only just and prudent thing to do.
TRUMP: “What about the alt-left that came charging at — Excuse me — What about the alt-left that came charging at the, as you say, the alt-right? Do they have any semblance of guilt? [cross talk] Let me ask you this: What about the fact that they came charging, that they came charging with clubs in their hands swinging clubs? Do they have any problem? I think they do. So, you know, as far as I’m concerned, that was a horrible, horrible day.”
“Wait a minute. I’m not finished. I’m not finished, fake news. That was a horrible day.”
TRUMP: I will tell you something. I watched those very closely, much more closely than you people watched it. And you had a group on one side that was bad and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent. And nobody wants to say that. But I’ll say it right now.
You had a group on the other side that came charging in without a permit and they were very, very violent.
REPORTER: Do you think that what you call the alt-left is the same as neo-Nazis?
TRUMP: All of those people — Excuse me — I’ve condemned neo-Nazis. I’ve condemned many different groups. But not all of those people were neo-Nazis, believe me. Not all of those people were white supremacists by any stretch. Those people were also there because they wanted to protest the taking down of a statue, Robert E. Lee.
So — excuse me — and you take a look at some of the groups and you see and you would know it if you were honest reporters, which in many cases, you are not. But, many of those people were there to protest the taking down of the statue of Robert E. Lee. So this week, it is Robert E. Lee. I noticed that Stonewall Jackson is coming down. I wonder, is it George Washington next week? And is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? You know, you really do have to ask yourself, where does it stop?
More specifically and important about this statement and one reason the left had a meltdown is he highlighted the fact that the hate groups on the Left (BLM & Antifa) attacked the groups unlawfully as they were leaving. They were assembled without permits, armed and attacked immediately. The left lost it’s mind, “How dare he say we have no moral and legal right to punch nazis” stated one Antifa thug on talk radio yesterday in Northern CA. A BLM member saying on another show “We are different than these racist white people. Trump can’t compare us to these nazi scum racists. We are stomping evil out, they are the evil. Our violence….It’s justified. At all costs they will be snuffed out!” Who talks like that? Answer, political zealots. Once they have lost their minds.
Trump rightfully and correctly identified the hatred of the small sub groups on both sides and condemned them as a truly great leader should. But apparently you aren’t allowed to out violent groups on the left and point out that they are in fact terrorist organizations working within America promoting civil unrest. At the same time Trump also outed the attack on our American culture and asked the most important question “Where does it end?” This simple act took tremendous courage and a selfless approach to leadership to talk like this from our president. He is so smart and ahead of the game it’s a joy to watch. If only the left was paying attention to the facts, they would love him.
Keep in mind it would have been easier for Trump politically to just be quiet and not rock the boat any more. North Korea backing down was taking over the news cycle. He could have kept the focus on his positive headlines, there were quite a few. If he was an ego maniac I’m sure he would. But he instead did what was best for America, he spoke the truth about what happened. He did some adulting in this situation. And the GOP turned on him for being that adult who told the harsh truth. There were two sides to the story. A lesson most people learn by kindergarten.
Oh how we need more adults in politics. People who have lived, succeeded, failed, rebuilt and survived. Not career politicians like Paul Ryan who have never had a real job outside of elected office. These no life dweebs sucking off millions off the teet of our tax dollars and then dares to stand in the way of our president and the will of the people who elected him? Deplorable!
To recap, to me Trump’s first statement was perfect. Covered it all. His second was unbalanced in blame regarding naming but still on the money. It just seemed he caved to the press a little bit.
However his third statement/press conference on the fly, was superbly perfect. He went right at the media and set them straight. Even addressing the attempt to attach the extreme wings of the very diverse alt-right movement to his administration as well as the entire conservative moment. If he had the support of the entire GOP they could shut all this #fakenews talk down easily. But sadly there are many traitors in the group.
REPORTER: Senator McCain said that the alt-right is behind these and he linked that same group to those that perpetrated the attack in Charlottesville.
TRUMP: Well, I don’t know. I can’t tell you. I’m sure Senator McCain must know what he is talking about. When you say the alt-right. Define alt-right to me. You define it. Go ahead. No, define it for me. Come on. Let’s go.
You see, the MSM has been pushing the narrative that conservative white men are the only real danger in the world for years now. They are pressing the idea that the entire alt-right is made up of neo-nazis and white supremacist. I have not found this to be true. The alt-right is a heavy mixture of varying backgrounds and races.A large number of millennials turned off by the Left and who are not really into the traditional Republican party but lean more to the right than left. The press is effective at pushing the idea that only the right has bigots and violent extremist wings leeching in on its party. This is a dangerous lie and has lead to an outbreak in violence against whites and conservatives in America.
But Trump repudiated that farce outright. Trump refocused us on the fact Americans should be treating each other with respect and kindness. That we are one country and everyone must be responsible for their actions. He made a call for us to show decorum and civility for all Americans in our country regardless of political and racial ties. This refocus infuriated the irrational left who need the social issues to exist or they have no political issues. It scared the fake Republicans who seek to destroy Trumps chances for re-election and hope to dethrone their best leader in decades. I commend President Trump for his bravery, clarity, and honesty. I detest the majority of the press who twist Trump’s words and lie outright to the public daily. It is such a disservice and waste of talent by these journalists.
TRUMP: No, no. There were people in that rally. I looked the night before. If you look, they were people protesting very quietly the taking down the statue of Robert E. Lee. I am sure in that group there were some bad ones. The following day, it looked like they had some rough, bad people, neo-nazis, white nationalists, whatever you want to call them. But you had a lot of people in that group that were there to innocently protest and very legally protest.
Because I don’t know if you know, they had a permit. The other group didn’t have a permit. So I only tell you this. There are two sides to a story. I thought what took place was a horrible moment for our country, a horrible moment. But there are two sides to the country.
#FakeGOP abandon principles of conservatism for airtime
Since Trump’s remarks yesterday many fake GOP members such as Anna Navarro, Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney and other political hacks went on talk shows from TV to radio bloggers keyboards humming away and pod-casters popping out commentary and they hit the airwaves and social media pushing the Lefts #fakenews narrative. These people are so happy to get some mainstream airtime and to be praised by the loony left wing conspiracy theorists. The limelight is alluring and can make you want to sell your soul I guess. They seem to forget they will only get this fake love until election time. Then they themselves will be devoured by these same MSM outlets. Trump made great statements yet the media story is Trump promotes racism. The logic doesn’t add up but the story continues. Makes you miss all the Russia talk. Trumps statements were elegant, straight forward and had healing potential for the country. But the press twisted and spun the narrative of negativity. Stole from us what a leader is supposed to be for us in times ot turmoil and national crisis. These grown children are so selfish they can’t just let the president do a good job and report it properly. These embarrassingly childish leftists who can’t accept that they lost the election and the reality is Trump isn’t the Devil, or a fool, or a criminal, just one damn fine president.
“As I said on Saturday, we condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence – it has no place in America. And as I have said many times before, no matter the color of our skin, we all live under the same laws. We all salute the same great flag, and we are all made by the same almighty God. We must love each other, show affection for each other and unite together in condemnation of hatred, bigotry and violence. We must rediscover the bonds of love and loyalty that bring us together as Americans.”-Trump
These GOP traitors who collude with the left and betray their own party, voters, and country are unforgivable. Keeping in mind the alternative to Trump was Hillary Clinton, nothing Trump has done makes voting and supporting him any less honorable considering what would have been with Hillary as president. There is no reason to not be happy with what we have gotten from president Trump. He actually is a great president. He’s well spoken, a strong leader, respected around the world and getting a lot done on trimming the regulatory costs and budgets of bloated bureaucracies. The reality is he has been more of a conservative in practice than any other Republican in my lifetime. SCOTUS picks, defense, policies, inclusiveness. A fighter. He isn’t a wimp like Romney who backs down when a liar comes in with the MSM bullhorn. You can’t shout Trump down, bully him, or shame him into your box of guilt. But these fake GOP relics who speak against Trump cling to some notion that we should still quietly take our lumps so that the MSM just might possibly say nice things about the Right. This is the party that invented the KKK to kill Republicans, black and white. These are the same Democrats who fought against the rights for Americans to have guns so that the KKK could kill unarmed Republicans, Black and White. I will give them nothing. The MSM will never be nice to Republicans they are too busy hiding their evil racist history and rewriting what actually happened (fake southern strategy theory). An honest media, it’s a pipe dream! Time for everyone to learn or master gleaning information from various bias and slants. Diverse thoughts are more intriguing and entertaining to the intellect anyhow. There is no such thing as “unbiased” news.
So get off your soapbox, high horse or whatever ego trip you are on fake conservatives, fight back, our country is at stake! America needs us and you. But if you won’t do your job, you can go bye bye.
The GOP doesn’t deserve the blessing that Trump is for our country. These fools are wasting a golden opportunity to truly advance American conservatism. Why aren’t they? America asked them too correct?. But these politicians seem to be on the take and have other agendas. If these politicians won’t do what they were elected for. Then I say it is time to replace these fake conservative politicians. Replace them with real conservatives, who have morals, and a genuine love for American culture; but also possess a spine. We need to start a movement to get these complacent pretenders out of office. Essentially, if you are accomplices with the MSM, you are the enemy and must go. This isn’t about having legit criticism of policy and administrative decisions. Ideas like that are extremely welcome. Political sabotage against our president however, is not welcome at all. Example, if these Republicans are on the #RussiaGate bandwagon, worked against healthcare/tax reform or are helping push this “Race Baiting” train of stupidity down the track, they must go now.
As a party we can no longer allow fake conservatives to work as double agents against our own parties agenda. If Mitt Romney and John McCain had fought to win the presidency as hard as they fight against Trump, Obama would never have had 8 years in office.
Let that sink in.
I’d like to say thanks to President Trump for doing the right thing and calling out all sides for their stupidity and violence. Hate speech is allowed in our country, hate violence is not and God willing never will be. Thank you for not being a coward and a political hack. I know how hard it is to make real change when the entire system is against you. We the people will not abandon reason, we know what is at stake. Thank you for caring for our country and sacrificing so much to serve as our President. I am proud to have you as our POTUS.
Thanks also to all the other Americans who actually listen to what Trump says and watches what he does and makes informed decisions as opposed to letting the #fakenews narratives be your opinion vault.
I hope our gratitude for our country and our president can be shown by working relentlessly against the #Fakenews narratives pushed by the MSM and GOP fakers. May we all as conservatives ban together and support our lawfully elected President and stop being wimps and show true courage under fire. We know we aren’t racists, bigots, fascists, or whatever horrible label of the day the left has for the Right. Don;t let these punks call our black members “Uncle Toms” and be down on them. Throw them more support. Don’t let these lefties pin their history of hate and violent garbage on us. We love honest diversity on the right, hell, we invented it. Fight to keep our freedom.
Trump has already led the way by example, we only need to follow along.
