Biden Will Run On A Central Lie About Donald Trump

Rod Thomson

Joe Biden announced today and he is running on one of the core lies about President Trump. And it is a lie that is at once pervasive and really easy to reveal. It’s the lie about what Trump said after Charlottesville and represents everything wrong with the Democrat/media establishment.

Trump painfully clearly and obviously was talking about the debate over taking down confederate statues and monuments. His comments were not about Antifa and the neo-Nazis or some such. They were about the country’s history, which I’m not in favor of erasing because people don’t like it today.

This is about basic honesty. And the media, Joe Biden and virtually all Democrat leaders are blatantly lying about Trump’s Charlottesville comments. Most Americans don’t know it. Trump makes misstatements and sometimes lies. When he does, he gets called out by the media pretty quickly. Even when he doesn’t, he still does by hilariously named “fact-checkers.” But who calls out the media for lying? (Let’s not even start on Trump Russia collusion. This is just so easy.)

Recall that Trump’s comments came in the midst of tearing down confederate statues all over the South and so there was this rally planned in Charlottesville. It attracted some of the country’s worst elements, from alt righters and white supremacists to Antifa and BLM. That was where you get all of those pictures of violence. It also attracted people who wanted to preserve Southern and/or American history — the originators of the rally — people who were then generally shocked at what went on. One evil person drove his car into the crowd and killed a woman.

In the aftermath, Trump held a press conference, and this is where the big, fat lie comes in.

Here’s the full transcript of the presser from Politico. It’s right out here in the open. Everyone in the Democrat/media establishment knows this. And yet the lie continues.

Here’s the context for those who don’t have time to go through the transcript:

TRUMP: “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’d know it if you were honest reporters, which in many cases you’re not. Many of those people were there to protest the taking down of the statue of Robert E. Lee. So this week, it’s Robert E. Lee, I noticed that Stonewall Jackson’s 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?”

Trump is continually talking about the confederate statue controversy — not the so-called neo-Nazis — and asks where it all ends. A lot of Americans were asking the same question.

These press conferences are always a revelation as to how reporters just hound the President like they never, ever did Obama. No Democrat strategist could have done better than the press corps does in trying to trap the President.

Here’s the money line:

TRUMP: “Excuse me, they didn’t put themselves down as neo-Nazis, and you had some very bad people in that group. But you also had people that were very fine people on both sides. You had people in that group – excuse me, excuse me. I saw the same pictures as you did. You had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down, of to them, a very, very important statue and the renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name.”

Again, obviously talking about the confederate statues debate when he says “very fine people on both sides,” not the violence between Antifa and the alt right thugs.

But he went on to make it even more clear. I mean this is just crystal clear: “I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally.”

Right, he was talking about taking down confederate monuments or leaving them up.

The media has lied for a year and a half about this, playing ad infinitum “very fine people on both sides” and pretending — nay, lying — that he is talking about white nationalists and neo-Nazis, when he makes clear throughout the press conference his condemnation of them.

But for the next year and a half, they will continue endlessly playing his words wildly out of context. Nay, just lying. Democrats will repeat them and run them on ads. Lies.

Every Democrat leader, including Joe Biden and the whole Democrat field, is lying. The base believes the lie because they want to or are ignorant, trusting that CNN and NYT is telling them the truth.

No one else should. The sliming of an American President should be repudiated by all people of good will.

Antifa Leftists Truth

Educating Chris Cuomo On The Evil That Is Antifa

by Dr. Julio Gonzalez

Fascim:  a political philosophy, movement, or regime (such as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.

Last week, a heated argument ensued between CNN’s Chris Cuomo and market strategist and motivational speaker Steve Cortes over whether there was a moral equivalence between Antifa’s violence and the actions of white supremacists. Cuomo had previously argued that there was none, which Cortes claimed represented a defense of Antifa and its predatory tactics. 

As part of his defense, Cuomo challenged Cortes to look at his actual comments before deciding whether he really was defending Antifa.  
Well, I took him up on it, and as it turns out, Chris, you did defend Antifa, and you were wrong in doing so. 

The argument centered on a “Closing Argument” Cuomo delivered in his show, Cuomo Prime Time.  In it, Cuomo asserts that there is no moral equivalence between the actions of Nazis and white supremacists, and those of Antifa. In defending Antifa, Cuomo argued, “all punches are not equal.” He explained, “when someone comes to call out bigots and it gets hot, even physical, are they equally as wrong as the bigots they are fighting?”

For Cuomo the answer was no. But, of course, that presupposes that the fighter is coming to the fight with noble intentions.  

Clearly, Nazism is evil. This point ought to be a slam-dunk in light of the overwhelming documentation of its history. From the dissemination of hatred throughout Europe, to its unforgivable slaughter of over six million Jews, to its unjustified attempts at land acquisition for the expansion of its dictatorship during World War II, the Nazis have demonstrated themselves to represent the pinnacle of evil and the quintessential example of human indecency and immorality.  

Thankfully, Cuomo agrees with that premise, although he is mistaken in characterizing neo-Nazis and white supremacists as being part of the right; alternative or otherwise.  Like communism, socialism, and yes, fascism, Nazism and racism is a leftist concept. It does not come from the right.

The political right in America is that sub segment of the population professing the supremacy of natural law, which is a universal law based on the immutable relationship between each man and the Creator. As such, there is no room for collectivism on the right, and whatever power yielded to society is done solely for the purpose of promoting the peaceful coexistence of men.

Alternatively, the aforementioned political philosophies are based on some form of collectivism. In short, they believe that a group, economic class, nationalistic collection of people, or overarching political organization or government is the supreme authority in societal interaction and societal design. For them, laws and government are not created to protect the individual and his or her liberties, but rather they are created to promote the wellbeing of the group.  In these leftist political views, the needs of the group will supersede the rights of the individual. 

Not so with groups from the right. So, when Cuomo and other left-leaning political observers call a political group that professes the supremacy of a subclass of individuals, in this case whites, as being part of the political right; alternative right or otherwise, they are absolutely wrong, and I suspect are doing so with the intent of demonizing their conservative political foes. 

The fact is that white supremacists, neo-Nazis, or racists are manifestations of leftist political thought akin to fascism, and any other form of collectivist political philosophy. 

Now to Antifa.

The problem with Antifa in terms of defining the moral standing of its positions is that it does not share a long-standing pattern of behavior demonstrating the evil behind it. In the United States, Antifa is a loose conglomeration of militant groups claiming to be fighting fascism. Tracing its roots to leftist organizations in Germany, Italy, and Spain during the early to mid-twentieth century, the movement withered as the dominant European fascists regimes met their demise. 

But with the increase in neo-nazism in Europe, European Antifa has seen its own resurgence.  

In the United States, Antifa is made up of hate-filled, radical leftists and anarchists who have adopted the view that their positions are so correct, so above reproach, that they cannot be restrained by appeals to reason. For them, in a civil society, in a society designed for civil discourse, in a society where the precept is a search for the truth through dialogue and debate, violence is not only acceptable — it is encouraged.

With their large anarchist demographic, the members of these groups have no faith in organized society or representative government. Disruption is their mantra if not the end to their means. In accomplishing these aims, they themselves are the sole arbiters of who is right and who is wrong, of who gets to speak and who does not, and of who gets to walk safely by and who must bleed.

No, Chris, Antifa is not a noble punch thrower. It is violent, anonymous thugs attracting more of the same.

Here’s the bottom line.

If I’m walking down the street, and I see a man wearing a swastika beating up an African-American elderly lady, woe to me if I don’t intercede on her behalf. In that scenario, my punches would be morally superior to those of the assailant and, hopefully, more effective. There, my punches as well as my intervention would be moral, righteous, and just.  

But if I establish a group of hateful youngsters, and under the false guise of protecting all the African-American elderly ladies of the world, disrupt otherwise peaceful assemblies, assault individuals at my choosing, target police officers for violence, and generally attempt to disrupt the greatest societal miracle mankind has ever seen merely to promote my own, selfish, narcissistic, and anarchist agenda, I am no longer justified. I become just another thug in line with the people I am trying to fool you into believing that I am fighting. 

And based on your performance on your show, Chris, it appears that the thugs are winning.
