Skip to comments.The Charlottesville Lie
Posted on 08/06/2019 8:28:11 AM PDT by Freeborn
Did President Trump call neo-Nazis very fine people during a famous press conference following the Charlottesville riots of August 2017? The major media reported that he did. But what if their reporting is wrong? Worse, what if their reporting is wrong and they know its wrong? A straight exploration of the facts should reveal the truth. Thats what CNN political analyst Steve Cortes does in this critically important video.
I have said myself many times: You will find mostly older Democrats who want to commemorate their history, with all its blemishes, and mostly younger Democrats who want to wipe the slate clean and forget that same past. I can see both points of view, there are good people on both sides of that argument.
What of course they should not be allowed to do is re-write that history. Granted, with that history, slavery, Jim Crow, lynch mobs, fire hoses, race oppression, race obsession, who can blame them for wanting to re-write it? But no, you don’t get to re-write it.
Lie? WTH? It’s a proven fact that PDJT ordered the white supremacists to start trouble. Or not. Genie/bottle.
Leftist will not be educated.
We are not worried about the leftists, we worry about the independents and a lot of republicans who need to know the truth. A lot of busy people get their news in small pieced.
The fact that it’s a CNN reporter doing this, if he is really doing an honest job, is earth shaking.
I am a Republican but somehow love Civil War history, proud my Confederate ancestors and their cause of state rights which lives on. This is not a Democrat/Republican issue.
Back at the height of the Confederate statue mania, I was conversing with people at work about it, and I made the case that a Confederate statue in a public park could be a real “teachable moment” for someone to pass on to say, a child or younger person who may not have been taught history appropriately. When the child asks, who is that? it’s a prefect opportunity to teach them about our past and how it is relevant today.
I believe I may have at least prompted someone who may not have the same opinion as I did to think about it differently.
He really did an honest job. Did CNN fire him?
The MSM creates and perpetuates the lies and deception. And the lazy accept it on face value. Change the MSM, change the outcome.
I understand, I just have very little faith in anyone that still gets their news from the networks. They are idiots and they will never learn. They are useless to our future as a nation.
Sheryl Attkisson sums it all up, in a nice neat little package, at her TED talk.
Saw more than one meme today about Dayton and El Paso. What was most interesting was how the folks who wrote the meme stated something about:
the shootings .... a rich pedophile and his many rich, well known, influential, powerful friends and visitors .... a failed coup to overthrow an election and how all the illegal sh*t that they tried is starting to come out....interesting
So many in America are getting played.
I think one can only call it being played when you truly dont know its snake oil. Most of those you are talking about, IMHO, know very well and are delighted by it.
july 23 1991 was the official date that Nelson Mandela died. They didn’t admit their mistake they scrub the news articles and claimed they never said it. Then they blame it on us claiming Mandela effect. Which means it’s a psychosis we have. Doubling down on their freaking BS
Problem this is what democrats point to as proving President Trump is a white supremacist.
No one in the media cares to correct the record
Funny you bring up Mandela. I work with South African’s. Mandela was in prison for being a terrorist and murdering folks, not for his political ambitions other than being a Communist and wanting to take over. Wasn’t until Carter and his Leftist pals in the UN, all of whom have helped in destroying the world, decided to reinvent who Mandela really was and convinced the world he was a political prisoner, did things change.
Anywho...take a look at this. Rather eye opening.
Legit point. But I do think the younger generation, millenial generation and these college ANTIFA types are drinking the snake oil with their puppet masters in the media, soros, etc, laughing at their useful idiots.
