I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like it. The media has lost its collective mind. Mass insanity reigns.CBS This Morning opened with their senior journalist Steven Colbert and followed up with legendary reporter Jimmy Kimmel, all in ridiculing Donald Trump.  The media has a full court press on for Trump and is utterly ignoring ethics, principle and the Constitution.

Let’s look at Trump’s initial reaction to Charlottesville, for which he was widely derided:

“But we’re closely following the terrible events unfolding in Charlottesville, Va.. We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides. It’s been going on for a long time in our country. Not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama. This has been going on for a long, long time. It has no place in America. What is vital now is a swift restoration of law and order and the protection of innocent lives. No citizen should ever fear for their safety and security in our society. And no child should ever be afraid to go outside and play or be with their parents and have a good time.

“I just got off the phone with the governor of Virginia, Terry Mcauliffe, and we agree that the hate and the division must stop, and must stop right now. We have to come together as Americans with love for our nation and true — really, I say this so strongly, true affection for each other.”

I am not seeing much wrong with it. But that wasn’t enough. Trump did not express the pure hate the left demanded. So they’ve decided to rain hatred down on him.

CBS News (again) ran an analysis. It determined that the two sides were not “equal.” Trump never said they were.

ABC News posts:

Trump blames counter-protesters for Charlottesville violence, hundreds protest in Loop

It’s a lie. An outright lie.

CNN, home of fake news, ran article citing the most shocking things coming from Trump’s conference.

2. On whether the attack that killed Heather Heyer in Charlottesville was ‘terrorism’

Ever see CNN get this bent when obama wouldn’t call killing 4 Marines and a sailor terrorism?

5. On how he viewed the weekend violence and who was responsible

Both sides bear responsibility. Who forced the counter protesters to get in the faces of the supremacists? Trump?

7. Echoing the right-wing argument against removing Confederate monuments

Trump asked- where does it stop? It is a fair question.

9. On who was to blame for the violence

Both sides bear responsibility. That is not in question. All these were found “shocking” by CNN without even attempting to include facts because it would interfere with the narrative. For a smattering of perspectives, you can read this article.

The Charlottesville police chief proved himself to be a fool  when defended his actions- or rather, his lack of action.

The most disturbing thing I’ve run into over the last couple of days is the willingness of the left to suspend the civil rights of those they find repugnant. I’ve been called a racist and a supporter of the Neo-Nazis- all the things you’d expect from the left- all because the one thing I support is the Constitution.

I am a Constitutionalist. I am principled. I was trying to debate this with liberals today. This is how it went down today:

Me: Do you agree that this violence could have been avoided if the two sides were kept separate?

Them: You’re a racist.

Me: Unite the Right had been given permission to hold a rally in Emancipation Park. The counter protesters did not.

Them: You’re a racist.

Them: Funny John, even in that photo seems one side is the clear aggressor and armed, the other just looking to keep from getting beaten.

Me:  If they’re looking to keep from being beaten, WTF are they there getting in the faces of the supremacists?

Them: John… I usually don’t ask people this straight out…. but are you a racist?

Me: No. I am a Constitutionalist. I am highly principled.

Them: Yes, the Nazis sure do think different than I do. I was just curious why you seem to be defending them as much as you are. Freedom of Speech is one thing, but this sickening racist bullshit with words of killing people, and yes, actually killing someone, is not my idea of something that should be protected under the constitution. Not here in America. Not in these “United States.”

Me:  I am not defending them. This is one colossally stupid ass canard. I am defending their rights under the Constitution- and yours as well.

Them: Holy cripes. Can you separate peaceful protests vs. those inciting riots? Talk about sad…

Me: One side had the legal right for a rally, the other did not. One side swooped in looking for confrontation with people they knew were also looking for a fight. That’s pretty stupid

Me again: Blocking the street to confront and taunt the supremacists was particularly unintelligent.

Me again:  I can’t get answer from anyone here on this. Let me try with you. Do you think it would have been a good idea to keep the two sides apart?

Them: Wow, John I’m done. You can play at the I’m just a constitutionalist thing but you aren’t kidding me. You’re true motives are obvious and pathetic. You’re equating the racists with people protesting hate. Sorry that doesn’t fly. If this is what you truly believe I’m sorry but it does tell me you have struggles with racism.

Me:  I would stand up for your rights under the Constitution as vociferously as anyone else’s. If that’s being a racist, then I am guilty.

Them: John there is no absolute right to free speech. Speech like what we saw Saturday by the racists was intended to incite violence. That’s not protected. So you can get off your pretend constitutional high horse and address the real issues. Do you side with Duke and Trump? Don’t seem to want to answer that one.

Me:  I side with the Constitution. You might want to consider it. BTW, hate speech is protected by the Constitution.

That’s how it went. No sensible debate- only the decerebrate rejoinder – you’re a racist. Because you don’t agree with them.

And Good God, the idiot Republicans- Ryan, Rubio and McCain- all looking to hide under Mother’s politically correct apron and avoid the facts. an the fact is- both sides were looking for a fight and they got one.

They all wanted to pin the blame- on Trump. All I wanted was to try to prevent the injuries and loss of life. It all was preventable. It was all really simple. Keep them apart- and Heather Heyer would be alive today. But that makes me a racist among the execrable liberals.

And then there was this:

Me: Wouldn’t it have been better to marginalize it and not give it all the attention it got?

Them: Nope. Letting it fester unchecked isn’t a good idea. This needs to be confronted and denounced.

Me: So M*** feels Heather Heyer dying is a good thing. That’s really f**ked up.

The argument about this has been bastardized beyond recognition. The left and the pussies in the GOP are turning this into a moral equivalency “who is more righteous” contest- but it’s not. It’s a matter of principle and law. Both sides share in the culpability for the violence. One group being more repugnant than the other (and they most certainly are) does not change the facts. Nor does it erode anyone’s Constitutional rights. And you simply cannot have a sensible discussion with a liberal.

Thing is, when you are willing to abridge the rights of those with whom you disagree or find repugnant, you are no better than them. Liberals are no better than the Neo-Nazi white supremacists they so deeply revile. Liberals are a**holes.
