Trump Denounces Racism, Media Ignore

It seems that even some members of the media are starting to tire of the mainstream media’s constant attempts to undermine President Trump.

In a recent conversation about the fallout from the Carlottesville protests, riots, and terrorist attack, Mollie Hemingway wondered why the media was ignoring what the President actually said about the horrible day.

Speaking on Fox News Hemingway opined that Trump’s response was appropriate, and that the media simply chose to ignore the content of the President’s message.

It’s like we are living in an alternate reality here.

People are not listening to what Donald Trump actually said on Saturday and they are not reading the actual full comments that he gave where he was explicitly denouncing bigotry and violence, where he called on people to come together.

And the fact is there actually is a violence problem on both the left and right.

In recent years, Americans have seen violent protests in everywhere from Portland, Berkeley, Ferguson, Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul, Brooklyn, Baltimore.

All throughout the country people have experienced violent protests, there was an assassination attempt against Republicans by a totally mainstream progressive leftist activist. And there is a problem on all sides.

People need to come together to denounce all of those things, and not tar the entire Democratic party as being part of the leftist violence or the entire Republican party as being part of the rightist violence.

Amen. She’s exactly right, spot on. I would have liked to have heard the President react more viscerally against racism on Saturday, but that doesn’t mean he didn’t react to it.

He condemned it. He condemned all hate. He condemned all bigotry. He condemned all of the political violence. He said all of the right things and he shouldn’t be attacked for not being more strenuous in his condemnation of one side or the other.

Also, he has condemned the alt-right, white nationalist, white supremacist racists in the past as well. (See here and here.)

Let’s all make a commitment to standing against hatred, racism, and violence wherever it rears it’s ugly head.
