Was reminded by The Outsiders today – during which they gave our very own Alan Moran twenty minutes to discuss the multi-billion dollar cost of green energy to Australian consumers – but also discussed the outright lies of the media and the American left over what Donald Trump had said about the demonstrators in Charlottesville in 2017. No lie ever grows old and cold on the left since they are utterly closed to reason and debate. Joe McCarthy in the early 1950s was absolutely right about communist infiltrators in the American State Department, which has been proven beyond any possibility of refutation – see <a href=”https://www.c-span.org/video/?201983-1/blacklisted-history”>Blacklisted by History</a> by N. Stanton Evans if you are still in any doubt.
That the left lies without impunity – counting on the ignorance and will to disbelieve of their voting sub-class – is perfectly demonstrated by the distortions and outright lies that have been embedded within their communal mythology. They will still be saying the same in fifty years from now and will be being repeated by the same clueless clowns then as are repeating it now.
Here is the actual press conference:
There were a lot of lessons learnt by the President about the media he was dealing with on that day. I just wish more people appreciated that if you read it in the mainstream press or hear it on the mainstream media, you must assume an anti-Trump bias that will be evident at least 90% of the time if you do any research yourself, and obviously research that is outside what has been reported by the mainstream media itself.
<strong>AND FROM OF ALL PLACES:</strong> <a href=”https://www.breitbart.com/the-media/2020/08/23/bbc-fact-checks-joe-biden-for-charlottesville-very-fine-people-hoax/”>BBC Fact-checks Joe Biden for Charlottesville ‘Very Fine People’ Hoax</a>.
<blockquote>In <a href=”https://www.breitbart.com/2020-election/2020/08/20/fact-check-joe-biden-repeats-the-very-fine-people-hoax-at-dnc/”>reality</a>, Trump said the neo-Nazis should be “condemned totally,” a fact that was <a href=”https://www.breitbart.com/2020-election/2019/08/08/watch-breitbart-news-confronts-joe-biden-about-misquoting-trump-on-charlottesville/”>brought directly to Biden’s attention</a> more than a year ago.
Biden persists in making the false claim, and the U.S. media did not fact-check it Thursday. But the BBC <a class=”x5l” href=”https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-53858940″ target=”_blank” rel=”noopener external noreferrer”>did</a> (original emphasis):
<blockquote><strong>Claim 3: President Trump said there were “very fine people on both sides”, when asked about a far-right rally in 2017.</strong>
Mr Biden said one of his goals would be to “wipe out the stain of racism” and he recalled the far-right protests in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017 which led to violent clashes and left one counter-protester dead.
He said: “Remember what the President said when asked, he said there were, quote, very fine people on both sides”.
Mr Biden said that after this moment “I knew I had to run” for president.
According to a <a class=”story-body__link-external x5l” href=”https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefings-statements/remarks-president-trump-infrastructure/” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener external noreferrer”>transcript of a press conference</a> on 15 August, President Trump did say – when asked about the presence of neo-Nazis at the rally – “you had some very bad people in that group, but you also had people that were very fine people, on both sides.”
During the same press conference, Mr Trump went on to say “I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally.”</blockquote>
Most major media outlets — including Fox News — failed to point out that Biden was lying Thursday.</blockquote>
The left never forgets, especially the things that never happened.
