Wednesday, August 16, 2017

This morning, MSNBC reported that...

...President Trump stated on Tuesday, August 15, 2017, that some of the torch bearers in Charlottesville were good people. The MSNBC report included the word torches in quotation marks.

I went to YouTube and listened to the entire speech:


Did President Trump state what MSNBC reported as mentioned in the first paragraph of this blog post?

He did say (emphases mine):
TRUMP:...If you take a look at some of the groups, and you see – and you'd know it if you were honest reporters, which in many cases you're not – but many of those people were there to protest the taking down of the statue of Robert E. Lee. So this week it's Robert E. Lee. I noticed that Stonewall Jackson is coming down. I wonder, is it George Washington next week? And is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? You know, you really do have to ask yourself, where does it stop?

But they were there to protest -- excuse me, if you take a look, the night before they were there to protest the taking down of the statue of Robert E. Lee....

[...]

Reporter: Who are the good people? Sir, I just didn’t understand what you were saying. You were saying the press has treated white nationalists unfairly? I just don’t understand what you were saying.

TRUMP: No, no. There were people in that rally -- and I looked the night before -- if you look, there were people protesting very quietly the taking down of the statue of Robert E. Lee. I’m sure in that group there were some bad ones. The following day it looked like they had some rough, bad people -- neo-Nazis, white nationalists, whatever you want to call them. But you had a lot of people in that group that were there to innocently protest, and very legally protest -- because I don’t know if you know, they had a permit. The other group didn’t have a permit. So I only tell you this: There are two sides to a story. I thought what took place was a horrible moment for our country -- a horrible moment. But there are two sides to the country....
Read the entire transcript HERE at the Washington Post.

The words torch and torches were not included in any words uttered by President Trump.

Questions now arise in my mind....

1.  On Friday night, August 11, were there people quietly protesting the removal of the statue and not carrying torches, or was the only group there that evening the torch bearers a la the KKK?

2.  Does anyone here know the exact route of those carrying torches on Friday night?

3.  Does anyone here know if there were people surrounding the statue on Friday night so as to protect it from possible vandals?  I ask this because in 2006, I participated in a protective ring around the Vietnam Veterans Memorial when Code Pink came to Washington, D.C., in a stated attempt to vandalize the Wall.

I have no problem with what our POTUS said. He spoke some inconvenient truths.

Now if we want a narrative that slides us into a Bolshevik Revolution and then Marxism - where no man is free to speak, where all are spied on by their neighbors - condemn our POTUS.

I refuse to condemn his remarks. Read the link. What can be condemned?

Firmly, in his camp.

Oh, BTW. Since your local media didn't bother to cover this Story:

August 6, 2017

Memorial erected for Travis Frost.

"On July 23rd, at about 4:00 AM, two black males stormed a home near Piedmont, AL. Two white males, a grandfather, and his grandson were beaten and shot to death. A female hid and was not found by the attackers. A Nissan Altima was stolen and found burned a short distance away.

"The victims are Joshua Dylan Moody, 23, and Travis Frost, 73. The female victim is Frost’s wife and grandmother of Moody.

"Police have identified three suspects. Two black males and a black female. Their names are Jeffrey Jamall Briskey, Rhimington Otarivs Johnson, and Sicondria Michala Carter.

"Briskey and Carter were just captured at an Econo Lodge in Petersburg, VA. Rhimington Otarivs Johnson is still at large.

"The day after the murders, Calhoun County Sheriff Matthew Wade said: “we don’t think this is just a random act.” However, no more information has been provided.

"The victims had a Confederate flag on their porch. It can be seen in a video taken by WBRC Channel 6. Piedmont is 85% white and only 10% black. The suspects are all from Anniston, AL, which is 52% black. The actual location of the home is in the Rabbittown community, which is about 95% white.

"No local media outlets have shown pictures of the victims or stated their race. Friends of Frost erected a memorial near his favorite fishing spot. This was also not covered by local media. We believe that if the victims had been black, and the suspects had been white males with a Confederate flag, the same media would treat the double murder much differently."

True dat.

TLEP,
I understand your position.

Be prepared to be hunted down, vilified, and forced into the unemployment lines -- because, if things continue as they have been the past four days, all of those are going to happen to Trump supporters.
