Violence again rocks still another American city: Charlottesville, Virginia. At this writing complete details of the demonstration-turned-violent are still being shaped by law enforcement. But the deadly clash was between White Supremacists and the group of protestors comprised primarily of members of ANTIFA — the self proclaimed “anti” fascist group that has been involved in pretty much all of the recent riots in Portland, Berkeley, Los Angeles, and now Charlottesville. Who “cast the first stone” remains to be determined. But at this point 3 people are dead — one 32 year old woman run over in another terrorist car attack there and 2 police when their hovering police helicopter fell from the sky. Dozens are injured, many seriously.
Politicians from pretty much everywhere have weighed in on this highly charged political/racist/domestic terror travesty, even before facts are complete. Of course they all take sides blaming White Supremacists, White Nationalists, ANTIFA, neo-Nazis, and of course President Donald Trump:
Senator Marco Rubio tweeted: “Very important for the nation to hear @potus describe events in #Charlottesville for what they are, a terror attack by #whitesupremacists”
“The views fueling the spectacle in Charlottesville are repugnant,” Speaker Paul Ryan wrote on Twitter. “Let it only serve to unite Americans against this kind of vile bigotry.” Mitch McConnell, the Senate Majority Leader, said the “hate and bigotry” espoused by the march’s participants “does not reflect American values.”
Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D), who had declared a state of emergency in the morning, said at an evening news conference that he had a message for “all the white supremacists and the Nazis who came into Charlottesville today: Go home. You are not wanted in this great commonwealth.”
Political Correctness or Political Hypocrisy?
Remember those recent demonstrations-turned-riots in Portland, Berkeley, Los Angeles, and Gettysburg? Dozens of citizens and law enforcement officials were injured and some seriously. Millions of dollars of property damages resulted. The self-proclaimed anti-Fascist group ANTIFA was deeply involved in all, and in all participated in every way in the acts of violence. They were in full force in today’s terror in Charlottesville and also participated in acts of violence.
Here is the condemnation of the ANTIFA acts of violence from Senator Marco Rubio today along with his tweet criticizing President Trump: “—————————–” There was none.
Here is the condemnation of ANFITA’s acts of violence from Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe when he said they are not welcome in Virginia: —————————” There was none.
However, we know for certain the American media when reporting on the domestic terror horrors in Virginia pointed at The White Supremacists, Nazis, White Nationalists, and ANTIFA members as being guilty of major violence and crimes against others. Read below some of their story headlines:
“3 Dead After Violence Linked To White Nationalist Rally In Virginia”
“Car Hits Crowd After White Nationalist Rally in Charlottesville Ends in Violence”
“Virginia white supremacist rally turns violent, shut down by police”
“One dead and 19 injured as car strikes crowds along route of white Nationalist rally in Charlottesville”
Hmmm…..Maybe my assertion above is wrong: I don’t see news headlines blaming “every” group involved in the Virginia violence for their part in the violence. They give the Alt Left participants a pass….again!
I’m faking my surprise: there’s no surprise. Once again the Media use their one-sided, liberal, fake news reporting to paint White America as racist, violent, and all as terrorists. The truth is simple: “some” people are racists — people from multiple racial groups, ethnicities, religions, and political persuasions. Contrary Ms. Clinton’s “Deplorables” speech in New York during the 2016 Presidential campaign, not all Conservatives or Trump supports are racists or bear the other labels she asserted.
I’m a White Christian American. I am not a racist. And I’m tired of being labeled as a racist, just because I am a White American. I also am tired of the labels placed on pretty much all Americans for the purpose of either elevating or lowering their status in the minds of self appointed political elitists who in doing so are bigots and racists themselves which is proven just by their labeling of others!
President Trump today called out perpetrators of ALL violence — not just that of White Supremacists, KKK members, and members of ANTIFA who I in news video saw wielding deadly weapons and using them today in these Virginia demonstrations. It’s sad to see in the headlines above the Leftist news media as usual leveled their hypocritical vitriol in one direction only: at the “white folks.” It should go to ALL those involved in those illegal acts.
Just as did President Trump, I call out everyone guilty of violence of any kind. That includes the perpetrators of the Charlottesville violence today that has so far resulted in 3 deaths and several dozen serious injuries. I do not pick and choose against whom to level my anger for acts of violence as members of the Left have done. Violence in ALL forms against any others is not only morally wrong, it is illegal and carries serious criminal responsibility. I encourage members of applicable law enforcement agencies to find, arrest, and prosecute to the fullest extent of the law ALL lawbreakers from today’s Charlottesville demonstration. And with the high quality of today’s video equipment, it should be relatively simple to find and arrest those perpetrators and begin this applicable criminal prosecution.
To the Media: STOP INTERPRETING THE NEWS AND SIMPLY GIVE US THE NEWS! And include the details about EVERY issue and circumstance in this and any other associated incidents and STOP making your editorial interpretations. For a change, why not call out ALL those involved in violence instead of picking who you want to blame while ignoring the entire truth of this domestic terror incident? Why not put Americans ahead of your corporate and personal agendas?
To ALL politicians: STOP blasting the President for not condemning the violence the way you think he should. You in Congress are so caught up in your personal political agendas you simply ignore the simple truth of all this: people have died because of domestic terrorism on your watch! Seriously Senator Rubio? Is all you can find to say in all this is in your tweet that President Trump needs to condemn it the way you want him to do? Where’s the condemnation for the state of Virginia that obviously even knowing there was probable trouble ahead did not have the necessary law enforcement assets in place to keep Virginia citizens safe today? Where’s the condemnation for ANTIFA who showed up with bats and knives and shields not to protect themselves, but to do what they have proven to be so adept at: starting riots?
Know what? A thought just crossed my mind: I know why the Media and the politicians don’t attack the real culprit here which is racist terrorism. Why? Because calling for total abandonment of racism (which if ever achieved would totally eliminate such domestic terrorism incidents) would take away gory incidents that make good news stories and sell papers and newspaper, television, and radio advertisements. So just keep beating that dead horse. Don’t even suggest holding those responsible who broke the laws of Virginia and the U.S. today with their actions and prosecute them for their crimes. This is America! We don’t (at the federal level) prosecute “all” criminals. For the sake of political expediency, we let those that are politically correct walk away from their crimes facing no consequences.
For that opportunity and “get out of jail card,” it pays to be a Leftist.
