The establishment media, specifically NBC and Fake News CNN, are hopping up and down about the anniversary of last year’s Charlottesville riot, which Americans had largely forgotten.
Not many Americans actually give a rip, except a small number of neo-Nazis, and the so-called journalists who exaggerate them in the hopes of damaging the White House and helping Democrats in the midterms. But mostly to show their contempt for the rest of America who doesn’t buy into their fake news nonsense anymore.
August 11 of last year a group of extremists marched in Charlottesville to protest the removal of a Confederate statue, some of them just to spread racist ideology. The next day they marched again, only this time they were met by masked, violent left-wing extremists of Antifa.
Violence broke out from both sides, resulting in a woman named Heather Heyer being killed after a white nationalist drove his car into the Antifa protest.
According to the New York Times some protesters weren’t there to commit acts of violence, they just wanted to protest the removal of the statue.
After the violence, President Donald Trump said, among other things, that there were “very fine people on both sides,” as he condemned the violence on “many sides.” He simply stated the truth, but the leftist media jumped all over him, spreading the lie that Trump actually endorsed the white supremacists when he did no such thing. In fact, he said that the white supremacists should always be condemned, but the media, which has been out to get Trump since before his inauguration, didn’t care about the truth, the same way they didn’t care when they lied about Trump calling all Mexicans rapists.
Ever since then, the left has used Charlottesville as supposed evidence of Trump’s racism. It is rather thin, however, so this year the media are fawning over the new book by Omarosa Manigault, the former White House staffer and star of The Apprentice who has made sensational accusations about Trump using racial language. (None of these has been proven, and some have been debunked.)
Almost no one wants to remember the anniversary of Charlottesville, but the media — who are determined to destroy Trump — are milking it for all it’s worth, giving a platform to neo-Nazis and white supremacists who would otherwise be ignored.
NBC, which has highlighted the eight or so white nationalists running for office nationwide, is broadcasting a special program about the riot’s anniversary. CNN is running breathless coverage of the planned protests in Charlottesville and in Washington, DC — in between publishing racist screeds of its own, such as a bizarre article advising parents to instruct white children about racial differences.
These are the same news networks that have aroused racial animus and outrage for at least the last decade. When Trayvon Martin was killed, CNN reported that George Zimmerman, the man who shot and killed Martin, called him a “f**king coon,” but later on the 911 dispatcher tape his words were that it was “f**king cold” outside. NBC intentionally doctored a tape of the same 911 call to make it appear as though Zimmerman brought up Martin’s race, when the full tape reveals that the dispatcher asked Zimmerman what the suspect’s race was so that the dispatcher could relay that information to police for when they arrived on the scene. In fact, when the media discovered that Zimmerman was Hispanic, they created a whole new category for him, “white Hispanic,” because they couldn’t stir up racial tensions about the shooting without being able to report that the shooter was white.
The same sort of thing happened when the “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” story of the Michael Brown shooting turned out to be a lie, but launched the Black Lives Matter movement anyway, and CNN staged an on-air protest supporting the lie.
There is enough real racism that can be found in the world that news networks could get their jollies over, but to manufacture racial stories just to boost ratings, or to seriously want to cause racial tensions, is about as low as you can go. And these clowns wonder why they are referred to as Fake News.
Prior to the anniversary of Charlottesville, President Trump condemned racism, and again on Saturday saying, “The riots in Charlottesville a year ago resulted in senseless death and division. We must come together as a nation. I condemn all types of racism and acts of violence. Peace to ALL Americans!” Ivanka Trump, offered a more elaborate condemnation of racism and violence, and urged all Americans to come together.
But no one on the Left will listen, because they thrive on racial tension, and they have no intentions of doing anything to help stop it. In fact, they are helping a tiny group of neo-Nazis and other leftist losers turn the Charlottesville anniversary into a national event. If they really cared about overcoming racism they would at least talk about ways in which America has overcome racism in many ways already. Instead, they give mild platitudes as a gentle formality before lunging into statements designed to remind America of just how racist Donald Trump was on that day one year ago.
Here’s how blatantly ignorant these people are. Last year at the Charlottesville clash we saw Antifa, created by the Democrats, fighting the KKK, created by the Democrats, over the taking down of Confederate statues, which were created by the Democrats, and they expect you to believe it was all Donald Trump’s fault. Rather than talking about how black and Hispanic unemployment is at its lowest levels ever recorded thanks to the efforts of President Trump, these scumbags want to keep anger and hate and resentment alive, and they will do the very same thing next year on this very day. And it’s all being done to hurt Trump and help Democrats.
