As I watch the Main Stream Media (MSM) coverage of the events that happened last weekend in Charlottesville I am dumbfounded!
The MSM, Democrats, RINO Republicans and everyone else that hates President Trump are all screaming that it was a “white extremist” event and somehow President Trump is to blame for it? They are also screaming that President Trump and his racist supporters are responsible for the rampart racism in America? The MSM and all the other Trump haters went even crazier when President Trump stated that there were bad people on both sides in Charlottesville!
If you watch any video or photos of the violence in Charlottesville you will clearly see that Antifa and BLM organized and paid protesters incited the violence, yet no one in the MSM or any of the Trump haters will acknowledge that.
The Charlottesville rally was a legal organized event to protest the removal of a Civil war statue. They had a rally permit, which they had to go to court to get. It was originally referred to as a “white lives matter” rally but immediately began to be called a white supremacist or extremist rally by the MSM. The protesters did not have a permit but were allowed to congregate and attack the people in the legal rally with clubs, urine, feces and chemical filled balloons, bottles and pepper spray, while the police initially stood by and let it happen. I saw one photo of a man using an aerosol spray can and cigarette lighter to create an improvised flame thrower to try and burn rally participants. When a “reporter”(?) asked him about it he claimed that he found the can on the ground and was just using it to defend himself, and that is what the “reporter”(?) published!
Antifa and BLM have been carrying out this kind of organized and paid for violence since their inception when Obama was President, with the MSM completely ignoring it and very few people being arrested and prosecuted. When the Mayor of Portland demanded to know why the Portland police handled a protest like they did in June the Portland Police Chief responded by posting an open letter to the Mayor detailing how they and a small legal rally were attacked by Antifa and BLM protesters, including using sling shots to launch feces, urine and chemical filled balloons and poison rodent bombs into their ranks plus using pepper spray, throwing water bottles and bricks and using clubs. Antifa and BLM violent protesters obviously come to protest events well prepared to be violent. Many of them wear all black clothes, mask and protective gear like motorcycle helmets.
The police could have prevented the violence in Charlottesville, or at least reduced it to some degree if they had tried to keep the two groups apart and forced the violent protesters to disperse. But, somehow, according to the MSM and all the Trump haters it is still President Trump and his racist supporters who are responsible for all the violence.
Every day this week MSM outlets have been giving air time to anyone who will verbally attack President Trump (and his alleged racist white supporters). This included the cofounder of the national BLM organization who said that “white speech” is hate speech and therefore is not protected by the Constitution. But blocking freeways and chanting about killing police officers is OK?
Now even some FOX NEWS hosts are angrily pilling on! Without Eric Bolling “The Specialist” at 5:00 is the latest “cannot watch” FOX show!
Clearly some people are living in a parallel universe?
