The mainstream media was in an uproar over President Trump’s statement, claiming that he was creating a false equivalence between right-wing extremists and those counter-protesting. However, Trump’s statement is consistent with local police reports “We were hoping that it would not elevate to this level of the violence that we witnessed amongst the participants in the crowds, on all sides. They were throwing bottles, they were throwing soda cans with cement in them,” said a Virginia police spokesperson.”
The Virginia police spokesperson, went on to explain that protesters “were launching chemicals into the crowd,”. Videos capturing the clash make it very clear that both sides arrived at Emancipation Park looking for a fight.
White nationalists and Ku Klux Klan stood on one side, with Black Lives Matter and Antifa protesters on the other. Both had come to the protest armed with makeshift shields and bats. Even left-wing New York Times reporter Sheryl Gay Stolberg called out left-wing violence. “The hard Left seemed as hate-filled as alt-right. I saw club-wielding ‘antifa’ beating white nationalists being led out of the park,”. White supremacy is a horrid and backward ideology they had a permit to legally protest and parade. Regardless of what you may think, white supremacists enjoy the same rights as Black Lives Matter and all other Americans.
It is easy to defend speech that one agrees with, but freedom of expression is truly tested when even despicable speech must be defended. That is America’s gift to all … Americans should not settle disagreements with violence. We tried that once, and lost thousands of Americans on “The Civil War Battlefield.”
The Left, and the main stream media are making this bad situation worse. They are deliberately refusing to acknowledge that the Antifa and Black Lives Matter protesters are just as guilty as the white supremacists for bringing violence to the street.
As the Left continues to muddy the water, referring to moderate Republicans as alt-right extremists, it becomes increasingly easy for moderates to embrace extremist views. The more the mainstream media refers to President Trump as a racist, (knowing full well he is not) ,the more they stir the pot of emotions. But then again that is their goal anyway.
The truth is, very few people in this country agree with neo-Nazis, the alt-right or Black Lives Matter and other self centered groups. . But it’s awfully convenient to pretend many people do so their indignant cries that the country is racist, they’re victimized, and the government must protect them.
No! The government does not need to protect them. The government needs to arrest them on either side that incite violence.
