The Left is piling on President Donald Trump for what happened in Charlottesville, Virginia. They criticize the president for not doing enough or saying enough while shouting that it is Trump’s fault for what happened. Where was that same outrage against Obama?
As black lives matter was killing police officers across the country, where was Obama’s outrage? Why didn’t the press attack him for failing to call out the black nationalist organization? As police departments across the country geared up for more Black Lives Matter demonstrations, the White House called the street protests “a good thing.”
I also remember the group yelling, “What do we want?” Dead cops, “When do we want them?” Now, and to Obama, that’s a good thing? The Lame Stream Media said nothing; as a matter of fact, they seemed to be on the side of BLM.
After the demonstrations turned violent Trump made the following statement: “We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence on many sides, on many sides.”
Was he wrong? Both sides committed violence, as a matter of fact when violence does occur 99% of the time it is the Left that causes it. A White House official later said: “The President was condemning hatred, bigotry, and violence from all sources and all sides. There was violence between protesters and counter protesters today.”
A White House spokesman said: “The President said very strongly in his statement yesterday that he condemns all forms of violence, bigotry and hatred, and, of course, that includes white supremacists, KKK, neo-Nazi and all extremist groups.”
For the next seven and a half years we can expect President Trump to be roasted, toasted and sliced up every time something happens. The LSM are condemning Trump for not calling out white nationalists but were silent when Obama wouldn’t say Islamic Terrorism. Trump will always be the Lame Stream Medias piñata.
This is one man’s opinion.
