“He said there were very fine people on both sides of the deadly protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017 against white supremacists”
It turns out that the supposed leader of the “white supremacists” there, was up until a few weeks before, a well known leftist organizer. Did AP report that? Wouldn’t that be important to the story? This is “guilt by association”, a classic propaganda technique.
Without regard to that, the President was not talking about “white supremacists”. Here is some actual nuance, that our lefty friends like to pay homage to. What he was pointing out - was that there are indeed very fine people who don’t wish to see civil war monuments and statues torn down.
Does AP acknowledge that it is possible for anyone to hold this view without being a “white supremacist”? Apparently not, because they are purposefully mischaracterizing what he said in the worst possible light.
Scott Adams did a great Tweet series debunking the fine people hoax the Left has pushed.
