Skip to comments.America Is Drowning in the Left's Lies About Trump: He never said Nazis or KKK had "Fine People"

The president of the United States, Donald Trump, never said there were "fine" Nazis or Ku Klux Klansmen.
The major news media need to understand these are important reasons that half of America considers them frauds. And we get no pleasure from this fact. The reason we don't recoil when the president labels the mainstream media "fake news" is that we know the charge is true. Has one major media news outlet yet apologized to the American people for preoccupying them for nearly two years with the lie of "Trump collusion" with Russia? Has one Democrat? Of course not. Because with regard to the Trump-Russia collusion issue, the news media were never driven by a pursuit of truth; they were driven by a pursuit of Trump.
In my last column, I offered a way of proving Trump supporters are not racists. The timing was, unfortunately, perfect. I could not anticipate how two horrific mass shootings would enable the left the press, the Democrats, academics and Hollywood to scream even louder than before that Trump and his supporters are racists and that their racism is why such shootings are taking place.
This is all predicated on what may be the most glaring lie of all: that, after the Charlottesville demonstrations, President Trump said Nazis are "fine people."
The president never said there were fine Nazis. The left-wing assertion that the president of the United States said there were fine Nazis will long endure as an example of something that has been true since Lenin: Truth is not a left-wing value. Truth is a liberal value, and it is a conservative value. But it is not left-wing value. A leftist says whatever is necessary to gain power.
By remarkable coincidence, this week's PragerU video is titled "The Charlottesville Lie." It proves the president never said Nazis were fine people. When Trump said there were "very fine people on both sides," he was referring to people demonstrating in Charlottesville for and against tearing down a statue of Confederate general Robert E. Lee, not to Nazis and Antifa.
The video is presented by CNN political commentator Steve Cortes, a voice of courage in the herd known as the mainstream American media. At this moment, of PragerU's 325 videos, Cortes's "The Charlottesville Lie" is the one I most want Americans to watch. The harm that the media and others on the left have done and continue to do to this country by charging the president with praising Nazis and other white supremacists is incalculable. It has only served to inflame and divide Americans: the tens of millions who believe the lie and the tens of millions who know the truth.
Typical of the former is author Wajahat Ali, whose attack on supporters of the president recently appeared in The Atlantic, which identifies Ali as "the lead author of ... Fear Inc.: The Roots of the Islamophobia Network in America." Ali has the audacity to write: "I feel compelled to ask Trump supporters: Is it worth it? How many have to suffer for you to feel great again?" The Atlantic is proud to publish such hate-inducing mendacity.
And the Left accuses conservatives of hate.
Aside from the clear evidence that the president never called Nazis "very fine people," isn't the very idea preposterous? Trump has a Jewish daughter, a Jewish son-in-law and Jewish grandchildren. Nazis want Jews dead. How do all the New York Times columnists, CNN anchors and correspondents and Democratic officeholders who say the president called Nazis fine people and who believe the president is a white supremacist reconcile those two facts?
They don't because they can't, and because they can get away with saying anything they want. When a nation's media and one of the two dominant parties are in lockstep, they can lie all they want.
New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand said, referring to El Paso: "(Trump) has created a national emergency of rampant white nationalism across the country. ... I think we need to blame President Trump and the rhetoric he's used since he got elected."
Beto O'Rourke, in an obscenity-laced statement against the president the day after El Paso:
"He's not tolerating racism, he's promoting racism. He's not tolerating violence, he's inciting racism and violence in this country. We shouldn't be asking if ... he's responsible for this when we know the answer."
Meanwhile, half a day later, there was another mass shooting at a popular nightspot in Dayton, Ohio, resulting in nine deaths, including the shooter's sister. Not much political hay against the president is being made of that one because, according to early reports, the shooter was a leftist, antifa-supporting Democrat who said he'd be happy to vote for Elizabeth Warren.
It is worth recalling that after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the American media blamed the assassination on right-wing bigotry that, they said, permeated Dallas. That Kennedy was murdered by a communist quickly disappeared from media descriptions of the assassination. Today, it is all but unknown to the American people.
Lee Harvey Oswald was a communist. And President Trump is not a white supremacist. No matter what the press says.
P.S. I just learned that within hours of PragerU posting "The Charlottesville Lie," Google placed it on YouTube's restricted list just two weeks after a Senate hearing at which a Google representative swore under oath that Google doesn't censor on the basis of political views. The ease with which the Left lies is breathtaking.
The left lives by the motto that if you just repeat a lie, people will eventually believe it.
But in the age of the internet, all it gets you is people repeatedly exposing it as a lie. It makes you look bad. :)
Thanks for posting - long term bookmark on this one. I can’t tell you how many people I have had to set straight on the Charlottesville narrative.
Thi is part of why there is a frantic push to get firearms out of the general public. Some of the “elite” just may be crafty enough to know that there will be a reaction.
Thank you. I have been looking for the original quote. Strange. It’s hard to find. /sarcasm
The KKK were Democrats, anyway. No reason for Trump to praise Democrats (unless they happen to be on uncharacteristically super good behavior).
In any case, a more accurate title for this article would be "America Is Drowning in the Left's Lies." No further modification is necessary.
How this president can remain sane and alive under this constant hateful bombardment by the MSM and the RATS, is a mystery to me.
May God protect him from all harm and may God confound all of DJT’s enemies.
The Left is undertaking a slow assassination attempt on the President’s life and there seems to be no law to stop it.
There were 4 groups at Charlottesville. Neo-Nazi Antifa - black outfits faces covered - and White Supremacists.
And 2 other groups supporting/protesting the removal of the Robert E. Lee statue from a city park - there to peacefully demonstrate & air differences of opinion - whom Trump called fine people on both sides.
Trump clearly said, "I'm not talking about the Neo-Nazis and White Nationalists because they should be condemned totally." The Big Lie by the media has become an urban myth. Those who believe it - because the media have repeated it nonstop - are being played.

This is a great, normie-friendly resource to share with your normie friends when they promote the "Very Fine People" hoax. When Chillin' - wait for the right moment - it's 5 minutes - very doable. Exactly what is needed exactly now. Prager University Youtube link.
This is from the fb page of Save the Robert E Lee Statue group, which had originally sponsored the rally because the city council had been debating and discussing removing the statue:
It has come to our attention that several out-of-town groups associated with white supremacy and identarian beliefs conducted events and protests in both Lee and Jackson Parks today. Neither Save the Robert E. Lee Statue nor The Monument Fund were in any way involved in these events and only learned of them though media reports.
We remain committed to preserving the Robert E. Lee Monument in its park through the legal process in the courts because of its historic and artistic value. We soundly and completely reject racism, white supremacy, and any other identity based groups that preach division and hate no matter which side of the issue they happen to support.
Hands up; dont shoot!
Dennis Prager “gets it”....
People like me object to mobs tearing down statues - destroying history - without any nod to due process...
I felt the same way when Buddha statues were blown up in the Middle East by radical Islamic mobs...
Folks....the current Democrat Party is crumbling internally...political death by its own hands..period. There is article after article in the Media, countrywide of the escape of over burdened taxpayers fleeing Democrat Blue states like California, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Illinois, etc., headed to the low tax states of Texas, Florida, Nevada, Arizona, etc. Palm Beach county in Florida thinks it has died and gone on to “Heaven” as it receives hungry and grateful thousands of people fleeing from the Northeast states that are dying on the vine!!!
Just follow the newspapers...they are telling the whole story!!! The democrat Party has killed the goose that lays the golden egg and that goose has flown off to Florida and Texas, (Trump Country) etc.
I think that was Biden who said that...
They know that, but liberals believe that if you just repeat something enough, it becomes true.
Excellent post. This will be quite useful. Thanks for posting.
Sorry, my lost post should have been to you.
During the Charlottesville event I was listening to a radio broadcast with an on-scene reporter who did a good job describing what he was and the lead-up. He is what I know from the on the scene report:
1. The city granted a permit for a gathering at the confederate statue in a park. Because of the threat to the confederate statue, people who supported keeping the statue as it was, began to gather. There was one or some who identified as “white supremacist.” Others were just people who didn’t want anything to happen to the statue, probably some towns people and university students - just everyday folks. None of these people were armed or wore protective gear.
2. The”Antifa” troops arrive, armed with clubs, with protective clothing, and they are on the street. And this group starts to cause a ruckus.
3. Then the police rescind the park permit and order the group in the park to leave. The police were forcing them to leave the park. There is no way out except on the street where Antifa is waiting for them.
4. The group who had been at the statue were unprepared for the violence and took a beating.
5. The group who had been at the statue stand accused of causing the riot.
That is how I understood the on-the-scene radio report.
