Dude, you know very well that there Were regular citizens there simply trying to support protecting the historical value of the statues. They were not
nazis...they were regular Jane and John Does who simply did want to preserve history...good and bad, as it is perceived. There was those who were
offended by the statues and protesting. They were not nazis either.
Trump was acknowledging those folks. There were good people on both sides of the issue...irregardless of the nazi march occurring at the same time.
This isn't the right battle to fight.
I'm not a fan of Trump but even I can see how unfair this has become, and that the MSM / left has been spreading lies to make Trump look like a
Neo-Nazi supremacist when he just simply isn't speaking that type of rhetoric at all.
In fact, he keeps condemning the Nazis and racists. Outright and directly. And the vast majority 95%+ of the Trump supporters condemn them too, and I
simply am not seeing any type of Neo-Nazi speech here at ATS either - and ATS is full of Trump's most ardent hardliners.
Can you openly admit that Trump has been condemning the "Racist extremists" and that the MSM is twisting this into something that simply isn't
supported by the evidence?
The first 30 seconds of that video Xuenchen posted is sufficient evidence about the MSM mis-portrayal and twisting:
Will you please be reasonable here? This is not a battle worth fighting (it adds to the already assumed position from Trump's fanbase that his
detractors are denying reality and purposely twisting things to unfairly make him look like a Neo-Nazi supremacist thug). It is a major strategic
error politically to do this, and most reasonable people who are in the middle ground (like me) have no choice but to admit reality here - that
Trump's been condemning the extremists this whole time.
In fact, Trump's condemned the Neo-Nazi supremacists more than any other extremist group since he's been elected. I don't really even hear
about Islamic terrorists much anymore this has taken center stage to such an extent. Are you capable of admitting that the MSM unfairly twisted this
to make him look worse than he actually is to the uninformed people who get their entire opinion from the network agencies on daytime TV?
Avoiding the reality of this subject has been the biggest blunder of the MSM and Democratic party since Trump took office. Attempting to paint him as
something all of his actions/statements do not align with has only hurt the credibility of his detractors.
I cannot even criticize Trump directly right now because of this. If I post a thread criticizing any policy of his I will need to preface it with a
long list of "I'm not a MSM sheeple, I recognize Trump did x y and z and that he's not this or that" simply to head off all these people who will
automatically think I'm one of these guys who calls him a racist Nazi all the time.
Do you recognize how troubling this is? That means it's almost impossible to voice legitimate criticism right now because of the right v left paradigm
and the misinformation and disinformation permeating the landscape.
I'm writing this as strategic advice so that you can salvage your political position. You must recognize how this has become a losing battle at this
point (it's not your fault) because the MSM straight up lied and cheated.
