I’m going to say it again: in no way, shape, or form did President Trump defend the white nationalists in Charlottesville. And neither has anyone on the right–if anything we have been falling all over ourselves and accidentally praising the Antifa twits who want to set us all on fire in our rush to condemn the sig-heiling morons. President Trump said, quite correctly, that there was blame for both sides when the alt-left comes charging towards a rally they don’t agree with swinging clubs and throwing fireworks.
More details keep coming out about the police response in Charlottesville, which is to say, there was none until it was too late. Over and over in leftist enclaves, this is the way the story goes, the police are ordered to search and disarm anyone on the right and allow the left to run amok. Of course this creates a win-win scenario for the Antifa thugs, they either get to go “bash the fasc” with baseball bats and bike locks and any other blunt or sharp objects they can get their hands on and do so with impunity, or, more ominously, they can provoke the right into hitting back. In Berkeley the left tried to gin up outrage when a free speech protester decked a female Antifa attacker (whom the internet dubbed “Moldylocks”) who was coming at him along with a mob of other domestic terrorists, but that effort fizzled out pretty quickly for a lot of reasons. The whole mess in Berkeley was quickly forgotten about because the right’s response was measured and the left not only looked bad but they lost. They picked a fight against an unarmed crowd and they got sent packing.
Well this time they managed to draw the foul they’ve been gunning for. They piled on top of the pattern of police inaction (due to orders from above, not the willful dereliction of the police) and created yet another scenario where the rules of modern society were put on hold for their purposes and the law of the jungle took over. And seriously, if you don’t think a useful idiot or two are a price these people are willing to pay to advance their narrative, then you haven’t been paying attention. Someone on their own side got killed and they are gleeful about it. Listen to any reporter with the dinosaur media parrot the spin on President Trump’s statements and their excitement is not only unmistakable, it’s barely contained. It doesn’t matter that the person responsible has nothing to do with President Trump or the Republican party, they have their chimera white male alt-right killer and they are ecstatic.
Meanwhile it seems that every last Republican out there is doing what every last Republican did during the campaign and is loudly putting as much distance between himself and President Trump as possible. Of course this is more the image that we are meant to see by the establishment and the dinosaur media, but nonetheless the names are all too familiar. Add Marco Rubio to the list of names that is jumping on this nonsensical bandwagon and buying wholesale into the media lie–I officially take back every good thing I’ve ever said about him and it’s apparent he learned absolutely nothing from the whole Gang of Eight debacle. With leaders like these we hardly need enemies. Our own supposed team captains are running the goalie ragged kicking the ball into our own net (yeah, I hate using soccer imagery but it’s the only sport insane enough to really capture politics).
So let’s get a couple things straight. No one but no one is defending white nationalists, Nazis, the KKK, David Duke, Richard Spencer, or any other group that President Trump is supposedly sticking up for. All of those morons have as much right to go out and speak their minds and protest for what they believe in as any other group of mobilized retards out there does. This is precisely what we mean when we say there is no “hate speech exception” to the First Amendment. Look people, we have to put up with it when Black Lives Matter wants to call for cops to “fry like bacon,” or when the left wants to scream about your SUV destroying the planet, or a mullah wants to preach death to all the Jews and America (funny how Islamic antiSemitism is somehow ok isn’t it?), or the feminists want to wail about the evils of the patriarchy, or some “edgy” atheist wants to dunk a picture of Jesus Christ in a jar of pee, or the baby murderers want to go out and chant about how a baby is just a lump of undifferentiated cells, or any one of hundreds more hate-laden leftist lies and slanders gets paraded about as some kind of legitimate discourse. So that means that it doesn’t matter how repugnant you find their message, you either stand for the right of the Nazis to march through Skokie or you don’t stand for free speech at all, and right now the Republican Party is loudly screaming that they don’t stand for free speech at all.
This situation would be far different had the Antifa thugs not shown up not merely carrying weapons but swinging and throwing them. This is the escalation I predicted months ago and it is exactly according to plan. I’m pleased that our President has the courage to call this by its true name and not cower before the PC police despite practically all of Washington turning against him.
And I’ll say it again, and keep saying it: nobody, not me, not President Trump, is defending the white nationalist nimrods, other than to defend their right to speak their minds, hold their rallies, and show just what kind of dimwitted fools they really are. If you can’t come up with a better response to their kind of idiocy than a baseball bat or an M-80 or a rock, then you really need to go home and rethink your life.
