Everything About Charlottesville Is Divisive And Wastes Our Time

By , in Exposing MSM Lies Rants on .

I’ve been hesitant to write about this weekend’s events in Charlottesville, Virginia, since we’d all be better served by not giving more attention to two groups of people whose congregations always end in violence, riots, arrests, and the like.  The BBC aptly described both groups below:

The alt-right – a disparate group of pro-Donald Trump provocateurs who critics say are bigoted white nationalists – has a reputation for trolling and online bullying. Now some believe they may have met their match in the form of a group of left-wing anarchists whose tactics are arguably more extreme.

They’re called “antifa”, short for “anti-fascist”. The movement has its roots in 1930s Europe, but has had a low profile for much of the intervening period. Now the recent surge in nationalist movements across the globe has given it a new enemy to fight.

Antifa activists say they are committed to fighting fascism and racism in all its forms. Some aren’t averse to violence, and the movement wasted little time in making its presence felt. Protests held during Donald Trump’s inauguration turned violent. Restaurant windows were smashed, a car was set on fire and objects were thrown at the police. More than 200 arrests were made.

Everyone who shows up to these gatherings expects some sort of “counter-protest” from the other side to materialize near them, which is why they come prepared with weapons of all sorts, including bats and other blunt objects, and sometimes firearms, often carried openly.  In the case of Antifa, they will sport face coverings/masks, so their identities aren’t “doxxed” to the public.  Indeed this is something they should be afraid of, as their employers (assuming they have jobs, of course) would likely not continue to employ them if they knew their employee voluntarily attended a protest they knew would turn violent.  Which is why I state the following, in the clearest of terms:

Those who do attend these rallies expecting to participate in some form of violence, regardless of which side they’re on, are a part of the country’s problem.

This should be more than obvious, as many in the alt-right don’t even support Trump, some of which don’t think he even furthers their goals.  Trump himself went out of his way to denounce everyone involved…

…but it doesn’t matter, because for the left, nothing Trump does has, is, or will ever be enough to get them to stop calling Trump a racist, sexist, misognyist:

“In my book, his lack of empathy, his lack of leadership, his lack of courage–he’s unfit to be human,” Navarro stated.

Yes, it’s not enough that President Trump went out of his way to denounce white supremacists as he was demanded by the left, he is still “unfit to be a human.”  Even though Obama never denounced Antifa or BLM, for the left, anything Trump does will just never be enough.  (Note: Democratic Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe condemded the Alt-Right in Charlottesville, but refused to condemn Antifa.  Go figure.)

Yet, the worst is the mainstream media response to the death of Heather Heyer, who was cowardly run over by Alt-Right supporter James Fields.  CNN went out of their way to put her on a pedestal:

“She would never back down from what she believed in. And that’s what she died doing, she died fighting for what she believed in. Heather was a sweet, sweet soul and she’ll never be replaced, she’ll never be forgotten.”

…and (plenty of others) quickly followed suit:

Take a close look at what occurred:

Let’s not mince any other words; I have absolutely no sympathy for the neo-Nazi wannabe who does his best Muslim terrorist impersonation and plows his car into a group of Antifa goons.  Trump is correct; he needs to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, which means a long jail sentence.

But the left is deliberately ignoring the obvious; Heyer showed up looking for a fight, just like everyone else in that crowd.  She is anything but a “hero.”  She stood shoulder-to-shoulder with her fellow protesters, waving Antifa flags, clad in hoods and carrying weapons, in a group of people that is known to block traffic for the sake of assaulting motorists:

You want to know who the real heroes are, besides the previously-mentioned officers that died in the Charlottesville helicopter crash?  The U.S. servicemembers who were killed and wounded in Iraq around the same time this all took place…

…and in spite of the fact that the previous four US Presidents have engaged our military in an unending conflict in Iraq…

…the left still found a way to blame their deaths on Trump.  He’s been in office for less than eight months; what is he supposed to do, pull all the troops out of Iraq his first day on the job and leave the country in a power vacuum?  It all makes my head hurt, but I guess at this point, I shouldn’t be stunned or surprised by any of it.

The only thing that needs to be “owned” is that instead of giving hero status to the troops and the officers that deserve it for losing their lives in the line of duty, the left has chosen instead to deify Heyer as their “hero”; an Antifa activist who showed up looking for a brawl, and instead got run down by an even more violent and cowardly person on the other side.

What should we all do, as Americans?  I’ll have to quote Jon Hall from earlier today, who said it best:

We’d do best to remember: we’re all Americans and – unless we unite under that common banner – I’m afraid our society may truly be terminally ill.

I am sick to death of the hate, violence, and chaos reaped by the mainstream media, but only we can decide when it changes.

If you want to make a difference, do yourself a favor and choose any other form of activism besides partaking in these violent protests.  Because you are only hurting your cause by participating, no matter what side you choose to stand on. Oh, one other thing…

…like me, the authorities don’t care if you’re Antifa or Alt-Right; if they catch you, prepare to face the consequences.
