Media while rightly criticizing the white nationalist violence, of course, failed to mention the violence from Antifa, Black Lives Matter and other far left groups who were there. Because the neo-nazis are wrong doesn’t make the violent leftists right. They’re both violent and wrong. But to mainstream media, the Antifa were ‘anti-racists’ or ‘counter-protesters,’ as opposed to violent communists there to bash the Neo-nazis and fight the police.
Via NY Post:
President Trump on Saturday blamed the unrest in Charlottesville on the “egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides.’’
Speaking at his golf club in Bedminster, NJ, he added, “it has been going on for a long time in our country.’’
Without naming any person or group, he called for a “study’’ of the “situation.’’
Trump said he spoke with Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe and they agreed “the hate and division must stop and must stop right now.’’
Several politicians from both parties criticized Trump for what he left unsaid.
