Herman Cain Exposes BIG LIE About Charlottesville Violence

By

Former presidential candidate Herman Cain has no doubt followed the events in Charlottesville very closely.

As a proud black politician, a white supremacist rally in modern-day America was certainly troubling to him. And Cain, like so many others, was anxious to see how President Trump would respond.

The only problem was that what the mainstream media reported about Trump’s response and what the president actually said seemed to be two different things entirely.

To listen to the likes of CNN, Trump had failed almost entirely to condemn the neo-Nazi rally and the resulting violence that claimed the life of one person and left many others wounded.

But Trump did make a statement, a very firm statement, in fact. And it did indeed condemn what took place in Charlottesville.

Here’s what the president had to say:

“We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence that’s on many sides. On many sides. It’s been going on for a long time in our country.”

And now perhaps you begin to understand why Trump’s response has failed to satisfy the mainstream media.

It goes beyond their demonstrated hatred for the president. Liberals are unhappy that Trump condemned EVERYONE involved in Charlottesville, not just the alt-right white supremacists.

You see, many of the media reports floating around out there have failed to sufficiently inform readers that there were two sides of violent agitators involved in Charlottesville, the other being liberal groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter.

And Trump called them ALL out.

Still, many, including many on the Right, were upset that Trump didn’t specifically name the Ku Klux Klan and other white supremacists in his response.

Writing on Herman Cain’s official website, author Dan Calabrese argued that Trump did do so, in a manner of speaking:

…he completely assailed their way of thinking when he said this: “Above all else we must remember this truth: no matter our color, creed, religion, or political party, we are all Americans first. We love our country, we love our God, we love our flag, we’re proud of our country, we’re proud of who we are.” That sentence assails everything neo-Nazis and white supremacists believe.

And finally, he condemns their worldview again when he says this: “We must love each other, respect each other, and cherish our history an our future together. So important. We have to respect each other, ideally we have to love each other.”

You cannot seriously argue, when you read these passages, that Trump didn’t condemn these people. He condemned what they did in Charlottesville. And he condemned how they think. Case closed.

It’s almost as if the liberal mainstream media didn’t even bother to read or listen to Trump’s full statement before launching into yet another bashing of the president.
