If President Trump were to stop his motorcade and have carrion removed from the roadway, Trump haters and craven, progressive Republicans would accuse him of decreasing the food supply for animals that feast upon same.
My analogy is reference to the caustic feigned moral outrage that is tantamount to acts of moral turpitude being directed against President Trump in the aftermath of the mess in Charlottesville, Virginia.
My friend and colleague John Brinson explained it succinctly in his response to a Wall Street Journal article on the melee in Charlottesville. John said: “In Charlottesville, armed racist whites were met by anti-racist whites wearing masks and carrying various weapons. The racist whites had a permit to rally; the anti-racist crowd did not. Soon, the two sides clashed, resulting in … injuries. There is no way to blame the racist whites for the violence. They had a legal right to be there – their opponents did not. If it had not been for the action of one racist white driving his car into the crowd, killing one, this ugly incident would not have resulted in the media and the Democrats blaming Trump for failing to list all the racist white groups involved. Trump did call for an end to ‘bigotry and hatred,’ which sums up the white racist movement. No, this incident cannot be blamed on Trump, but the left-wing news media use any excuse to attack Trump.”
President Trump spoke clearly and plainly, and he made the correct point that there is/was a moral equivalence between the two groups in Charlottesville.
It must also be stated that the American Civil Liberties Union, the premiere leftist legal group, came to the legal defense of the “mislabeled” white nationalist, neo-Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan, when the city of Charlottesville tried to revoke the protest permit it had initially rendered. U.S. District Court Judge Glen Conrad agreed with the ACLU defense argument that the decision to revoke the permit infringed upon free speech. Why aren’t the Trump haters and craven Republicans attacking the ACLU and Judge Conrad?
Said groups are “mislabeled.” They are racists hate groups, but they are not part of any right-wing ideology you and I identify with. We must “resist” the pernicious lies of the neo-Leninist media. They knowingly adopt the verbiage of George Soros-funded groups in attempt to discredit conservatives by fallaciously claiming the conservative movement is comprised of the racist hate groups that gathered in Charlottesville.
You don’t have to like the words of another person or group, but that dislike alone does not permit those you disagree with from espousing their views – no matter how untoward.
Consider the history of repulsive public rhetoric made by the likes of Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton, Charles Schumer, Michelle Obama, Karl Rove, et al, and ad nauseum.
On Aug. 12, Obama tweeted: “No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion.” The sense of his tweet was that people were taught to hate blacks and Muslims. Of course he was given a pass in the media and by politicos for his thinly veiled bigotry.
By extolling the words of Obama, the media further showcased their absence of credibility and the fact their predisposition is to lies and deceit. Their shameful dishonesty and Obama’s raw racism is revealed for all to see in an article I wrote in 2013:
“Obama believes, ‘If [black] nationalism could create a strong and effective insularity, deliver on its promise of self respect, then the hurt it might cause well-meaning whites, of the inner turmoil it caused people like me, would be of little consequence.’ (‘Dreams From My Father: A Story of Race And Inheritance’; Pg. 284) For those who miss the exact point he was making, he was saying that he would sacrifice his white mother and white grandparents on the altar of Black Nationalism.” (See: “Obama Boasts His Irish Ancestry But Hates Whites and Catholics,” Aug. 13,2013.)
I continued: “There resides within Obama a hatred of white people that explains in part why he is so conflicted. In his book ‘Dreams,’ he opines that, as was the case with Malcolm X, if he were able ‘he would purge the white blood from my veins.'” (Pgs. 101-102 paperback edition) Obama by his own admission, referred to blacks who dated whites and blacks who spoke without slang as ‘Uncle Toms.’ He by his own admission, called black students who associated with white students ‘half-breeds.'”
Imagine if President Trump had made such hateful remarks in one of his books. Therein lies the duplicitous double standards and selective moral outrage.
President Trump called evil what it is – evil. He properly identified both groups executing violence as moral equivalents. But in the mindset and parlance of those predisposed to castigate him, President Trump committed political apostasy by not attacking white protesters legally assembled as singularly evil racists – and the group carrying weapons, including the white Clinton supporter who drove his vehicle into the permitted group, murdering a young woman, as the social conscience of goodwill and anti-bigotry.
