President Donald Trump is generally treated like a piñata by the mainstream press, but this is getting ridiculous.
Anything the commander-in-chief has said about the horrific events in Charlottesville has been twisted into oblivion to make it appear as if he’s coming out in favor of white nationalists.
Beyond the fact that it opens up serious questions about the comprehension level of members of the mainstream media, it’s incredibly frightening how the narrative is being pushed and left completely unchecked.
We’ve seen that on full display in the past as well via the never-ending Russia saga, but it’s even worse this time around.
One of Trump’s crystal clear points was on the fact that the alt-Left has been behind more than it’s fair share of violent incidents. That was met with condemnation as well, and the media has generally presented it as if there’s no such thing as an alt-Left.
That’s scary. While informed folks know otherwise, what about the folks that take what the evening news tells them at face value? There’s damage being done alright, but the media remains stunningly oblivious to the consequences of that.
The Daily Wire passes along some more details on the alt-Left to further bolster Trump’s argument.
After calling out reporters for being upset about how long it took him to call racists“repugnant,” Trump brought up the alt-left.
The president said:
“What about the alt-left that came charging at, as you say, at the alt-right? Do they have any assemblage of guilt? What about the fact that they came charging with clubs in their hands swinging clubs? Do they have any problem? I think they do. That was a horrible, horrible day.”
Trump took some questions at Trump Tower yesterday, and the press pounced. It didn’t matter what Trump had to say, as the press already had their minds made up on what the story of the day was going to be.
But Trump’s assessment about the alt-left isn’t a laughing matter at all.
In fact, on Tuesday a clash broke out between police and members of Antifa in Illinois, who reportedly wouldn’t get out of an intersection.

The media picked up the proverbial ball and ran with it, and Trump’s crystal clear denouncements of white nationalists were completely disregarded.
The press heard what they wanted to hear, and they proceeded to spin that tale on broadcasts and in print.
Here’s a fact: the alt-Left does exist, and they’re being allowed to go around unchecked.
The irresponsible behavior from the press is both shameful and mind-blowing, and it’s high time for the curtain to be pulled back once and for all.
