The left’s insistence that our Commander in Chief is the universe’s supreme bigot was only emboldened by Donald Trump’s carefully timed response to the Charlottesville, Virginia weekend war.
As the President of the United States, Trump’s foray into the hate-filled and vitriolic reactions of America to the 48 hour battle of Charlottesville deserved a poignant and well-calculated response. Immediately following the tragic death of Heather Hayer, who was targeted and struck by a vehicle during the violence, President Trump reached out to the nation with a swift response that was predictably lambasted by the radical left:
“We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence, on many sides. On many sides. It’s been going on for a long time in our country. Not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama. This has been going on for a long, long time.”
The left took umbrage to the likely ad-libbed addition of “on many sides”, with armchair psychologists taking to social media to issue diagnoses of the President has a Nazi himself due to these three words.
Of course, we have come to expect such divisive rhetoric from the radical left, who are hellbent on destroying the President in any way possible. The President clearly condemned these actions in his statement, yet the media continued with the narrative that he hadn’t, causing a farcical dichotomy of headlines from news site to news site.
Now, after the dust has settled, the President has released a more complete statement on the subject, likely allowing time for grief and ongoing investigations to take their course before diving in head first. While this latest statement is extremely thorough in its condemnation, calling out certain hate groups by name, (a requirement created by the leftist media), now the President is taking heat for waiting until Monday to speak on the subject…as the left continues to ignore Trump’s first condemnation.
“President Trump unequivocally denounced white nationalism in an unannounced address following the violence at a white nationalist event in Charlottesville over the weekend.
“’Racism is evil and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans,’ Trump said. ‘We are equal in the eyes of our Creator. We are equal under the law and under our Constitution.’
“’To anyone who acted criminally at this weekend’s racist violence: you will be held fully accountable. Justice will be fully delivered. As I said on Saturday, we condemn this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence. It has no place in America and as I’ve said many times before no matter the color of our skin, we all live under the same laws. We all salute the same great flag and we are all made by the same almighty God,’ Trump continued.“’We must love each other, show affection for each other, and unite together in condemnation of hatred, bigotry and violence,’ Trump continued. ‘We must rediscover the bonds of love and loyalty that bring us together as Americans.’”
It is quite likely that the left will find a way to ignore or lambast these latest statements by the President in an effort to align Donald Trump with the White Nationalist movement or paint the Commander in Chief as a proponent of Nazism.
This is simply another tactic of the radical left in their campaign to delegitimize the conservative movement in America. Conservative are not racists, by definition. Our nation was founded on principles of equality; something that conservatives and libertarians both take extremely seriously. Those who would believe that equality isn’t deserved by any other American have no claim to the conservative world and are being outed as such.
We mustn’t allow the mainstream media to continue pushing this false narrative that groups republicans and conservatives with fascists and white supremacists.
