I am absolutely flabbergasted at the extent of the mainstream media bias — including at Fox News — and most of Twitter related to the riots in Charlottesville, Virginia yesterday.
All day and all night long TV commentators and Twitter left- wingers tried to turn the horrendous events that happened there to only be about the Unite the Right racist supremacists.
I mean, every guest Fox could get on in a hurry tried to blame President Trump for daring to say that both sides were wrong and full of hate. I mean, even some Republicans, like Marco Rubio, tried to tell the President, not only exactly what he should have said, word for word, but how he should have said it.
Well, the President was right. There were two sides in the wrong in Charlottesville. For proof, take a quick look at a few of the headings on this Google so-called news page:
- How a White Nationalist Rally Turned Violent,
- Man Charged With Murder at Neo-Nazi Rally, and
- White Nationalist Rally Sparks Violent Clashes.
All of it one-sided. Then, there is a video at Rebel Media with Faith Goldy that shows a very different narrative. In fact, I just happened to be watching her video on my cell phone using a LIVE App when it all happened.
Plus, today, I found a number of videos at this @polNewsForever Twitter account. The truth is in the videos. While I certainly don’t agree with the Alt-Right racists, they were marching peacefully. The real problem was when Alt-Right participants had to pass through BLM and the Alt-Left fascists Antifa.
Which begs the question: Why are the U.S. and Canadian media not condemning the Leftist Antifa as much as the Right Nationalists?
And where were the police in Charlottesville? Were they told to step down as the police were in Berkeley, California riot — only to then appear when the car went into the crowd and people were hurt?
Look, I am a Canadian, with American friends and relatives, who pays attention to what is going on in the U.S. So, I am aware that the U.S. is split down the middle politically. I can see clearly, from this distance, that a civil war is brewing because the media are only spinning one narrative. The crux of the matter is that such spinning gives the progressives the mistaken belief that they are in the majority. They are not.
Heather Heyer is the young woman who died from her injuries after a car deliberately ran into her and others in Charlotteville. At this point, it appears to have been one of the White Supremacists but we don’t know for sure as there were plenty of Antifa and BLM there as well. No matter who killed her and injured so many others, they are domestic terrorists. But, many of the comments on the Facebook and Twitter pages honouring Heyer do not actually honour her because they blame Trump for enabling all the hate in Charlotteville yesterday. Which is just as uncalled for as it would have been to blame President Obama when five police officers were gunned down in Texas last year by BLM protestors.
Unfortunately, as I said in my post above, all this divisiveness only confirms my concern that a civil war is brewing in the U.S. particularly when I hear certain Democratic congress members call for impeaching Trump. Just what would that do? To get a hint, they need only to look at the November 8th electoral map to see reality.
