This quite possibly could be seen as the first battle of the New Civil War, except for one thing: The fighting factions were both extremists who have decided that violence is the best way to change the world, at least, the world they live in. It is in no way a “government” sanctioned conflict, at least not yet.
Unfortunately, it spills out into the lives of true American’s, innocent people who are caught in the “collateral damage.”
But the major media is portraying the entire incident as a result of right-wing violence. They choose to ignore the fact, portrayed on video from their own news stations, that both groups are attacking each other with ball bats, 2x4s, and ax handles.
Now we have the designations of “alt-right” and “alt-left.” But the blame is never placed anywhere but on the right.
“And, while there is no evidence of a growing right-wing extremist movement, even left-leaning journalists have found abundant evidence of a rapidly growing violent left-wing movement, as well as signs of it going mainstream, along with an increasing normalization of political violence.”
We can thank the major news media for normalizing violent protests.
President Trump stood his ground when reporters tried to accuse him of not casting the blame where it belongs. He said:
“But you also had people that were very fine people, on both sides … 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.”
“Not all of those people were neo-Nazis, believe me. Not all of those people were white supremacists, by any stretch,” declared the president.
Trump had stated a demonstrable truth, recorded by cameras, that there was violence from both sides. But, for some reason, that assertion enraged the press, which responded by trying to portray the president as defending the Nazis.
“Do you think what you call the alt-left is the same as neo-Nazis?” asked one reporter.
“Mr. President, are you putting what you’re calling the alt-left and white supremacists on the same moral plane?” asked another.
“I’m not putting anybody on a moral plane,” shot back the president. “What I’m saying is this: You had a group on one side and you had a group on the other and they came at each other with clubs. And it was vicious and it was horrible and it was a horrible thing to watch. But there is another side… but you had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists, OK? And the press has treated them absolutely unfairly.”
The Washington Post ridiculed the president for saying there were two sides to the story, and called it a “false moral equivalency.”
The thing is, there is no moral ground with these groups. There is no such thing as a moral base that guides their actions. They are going to get their way even if they have to beat and murder people to do it.
The national media has no more moral base than any “alt-right” or “alt-left” group in America. You don’t see reporters swinging ball bats and 2X4s, but they use the invasiveness of television to promote the same agenda and seek the same results–without actually being the ones who beat and murder.
President Trump is going against the most influential organization in the world: The American Media, and they are out to ruin him.
And here is a perfect example that tells what a reporter will try to make the president look bad. At the press conference Tuesday at the Trump Tower, one reporter asked the president “Are you against the Confederacy?”
