From Prager University, below is a 5 minute video of how the media tells vicious and divisive lies about Trump with regard to his entirely appropriate response to the Charlottesville protests. The media wants you to believe that Trump said that the Neo-Nazi's present at that protest were "fine people." It's not true at all. It's a lie. He said just the opposite and every Media outlet went with that very fake news (and continue to this day).
The Left-wing media complex and Democrats ALL continue to be so desperate to cast Trump as a racist, that they CONTINUE to tell bald-face lies all the time! Despicable and shameful.
Every Trump supporter knows that the media outlets have lied constantly from the very beginning of Trump's candidacy. They continue to lie and mislead, misinform, mis-characterize and omit facts or the correct context of anything related to Donald Trump. Not only do they lie, they lie by omission. They will report lies while ignoring real and usually positive news -- news that would be favorable to the president that happens to be true. They don't want you to hear good news and suppress it mightily. Got it?
If you're a Democrat, please understand that every member of the Democratic Party, the DNC, the Democratic-friendly Media outlets and every Dem. candidate is in on this non-stop propaganda and lies: That includes Nadler, Schiff, Hillary, Schumer, Pelosi, Feinstein, and everyone running for President. They are all big time liars.
Here's the PragerU video here. Below is the transcript:
"Politicians lie. We all know that.
That is not an indictment of all politicians—it’s simply part of
It’s our job, as informed citizens, to figure out the truth. And that’s where journalists and the
media come in. They are supposed to help us ferret out fact from fiction. So when they get a
fact wrong, that’s bad. When they get a fact wrong, know it’s wrong, and don’t correct it, that’s
worse. That’s not getting a fact wrong; that’s a lie. And that’s journalistic malfeasance.
The best (or maybe worst) example of this followed a presidential press conference at Trump
Tower on Tuesday, August 15, 2017.
You remember what happened that previous weekend: A group of white supremacists held a
“white pride” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. The ostensible reason was to protest the removal
of a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee.
An Antifa group showed up to counter-protest. The mayor and the police were totally unprepared
to deal with the violence that ensued. Tragically, a young woman, Heather Heyer, was run over
and killed by a neo-Nazi.
The press conference itself was raucous. The media was antagonistic. The president was
combative. Out of it all, one phrase eclipsed the thousands of words exchanged: The media
reported that President Trump described neo-Nazis as “very fine people.”
Only, he didn’t. In fact, he didn’t even hint at it. Just the opposite: he condemned the neoNazis in no uncertain terms.
So then, who were the “fine people” he mentioned?
The answer: He was referring to another group of Charlottesville demonstrators who came out
that weekend—protestors who wanted the Robert E. Lee statue removed and protestors who
wanted to keep the statue and restore the park’s original name.
This is what President Trump said about those peaceful protestors: “You also had some very
fine people on both sides. . . . You had people in that group that were there to protest the
taking down of—to them—a very, very important statue and the renaming of a park from Robert
E. Lee to another name.”
A few moments later, in case there would be any misunderstanding, he makes his meaning
even more explicit. “…I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists. They
should be condemned totally.”
Lest you have any doubts that good people were in Charlottesville to protest the removal of
the Robert E Lee statue, the New York Times confirmed it in a story they published the next
day, August 16.
“’Good people can go to Charlottesville,’ said Michelle Piercy, a night shift worker at a Wichita,
Kansas retirement home, who drove all night with a conservative group that opposed the
planned removal of a statue of the Confederate general Robert E. Lee. After listening to Mr.
Trump on Tuesday, she said it was as if he had channeled her and her friends… who had no
interest in standing with Nazis or white supremacists…”
There’s another simple test that we can employ to prove that the president was not referring
to the neo-Nazis as “fine people.” It’s so obvious, it’s painful to mention: The president’s
daughter and son-in-law are Orthodox Jews. His grandchildren are Jewish.
And if that is still not enough to convince you, how about this: Does anyone believe that
Donald Trump thinks there are “good” Antifa, the leftist thugs who were counter-protesting the
neo-Nazi thugs? After all, if those two groups were the only ones involved, and there were “fine
people on both sides,” that means the president believed that there were fine Antifa people.
Even MSNBC should have found that hard to swallow.
Again, the “very fine people on both sides” President Trump described at the press conference
were the people who wanted to remove the Robert E. Lee statue and the people who wanted
to keep it. Both of these groups were non-violent protesters—fine people with very different
The scandal of Charlottesville is not what President Trump said about neo-Nazis. It’s what the
media said President Trump said about neo-Nazis. It’s a scandal because news reporting is
supposed to be about gathering facts, not promoting an agenda. In Charlottesville, they got it
exactly backwards. We have been living with the consequences ever since.
Plainly put: ABC, CBS, NBC, NPR, the New York Times, the Washington Post and the others
spread a malicious lie that has poisoned our national dialogue.
They should apologize to the American people for what they have done.
Don’t hold your breath.
Actually, I have a better idea. Let out a big sigh of relief.
Because now you know the truth.
