Biden Launches His Campaign on a Toxic Slander

Former Vice President Joe Biden hooked his entire campaign launch this week on the hoax that President Trump called white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia “fine people.” “Charlottesville” is the first word out of Biden’s mouth, what he calls the defining moment for his campaign and for the country.

Biden’s presidential message is directly in line with Hillary Clinton’s “basket of deplorables” smear. Its main effect will be to energize Trump supporters. Biden can try to ride race-baiting to the White House, as his old boss did in 2012, but Biden is not the man to do it. Leading with the Charlottesville lie is a pathetic attempt to overcome the disability of being a white man in a Democrat party obsessed with skin color.

Biden can’t hide that he’s white by attacking President Trump as a racist. And he can’t use Charlottesville to define his campaign, because Charlottesville is a lie.

Did President Trump defend the neo-Nazis marching in Charlottesville and call them “very fine people.” No. This is not even ambiguous. It is as clear as two plus two. Watch the video of President Trump’s August 15, 2017 press conference yourself. Read the transcript. Biden’s video will go down as one of the most dishonest campaign launches in American political history.

The Democrats’ propaganda media, which includes not only print and TV but also social media and Google search algorithms, presents Biden’s launch video with gushing praise. Where are the fact checkers? The country is still reeling from Mueller’s revelation that the press was serving a stew of lies and frame-ups for two years. It was a stew cooked up by the Obama Administration and spread by our lying media, once respected as the “free press.” That press is now a wholly owned subsidiary of the Democratic Party.

Without missing a beat, we are back to another ugly lie about President Trump: that Trump supports and praised the white supremacists in Charlottesville. Democrats can’t let go of Charlottesville, even though it is such a provable lie, because it’s all they’ve got to support the propaganda that Trump likes neo-Nazis. They need their voters to hate and despise Republicans.

Social and mainstream media does not want the public to know the facts. One lone CNN journalist, Steve Cortes, had the integrity to call out his network for spreading this ugly lie about President Trump. He was rebuked on air for telling the truth, and CNN continues its false reports. This is all the more cynical, because CNN initially reported the incident accurately.

The truth is the opposite of Biden’s claims. As Cortes wrote for RealClearPolitics, you need only read Trump’s powerful statement from the White House following Charlottesville and the death of Heather Heyer. President Trump’s succinct and direct words: “Racism is evil, and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.”

Cortes scolds his fellow journalists in the corporate left-wing media for their “willful deception” of the public.

Democrats need to slander Americans as racist to win elections. Calling fellow citizens racist energizes their white liberal base like nothing else. They can’t win enough of the black vote without it.

Race-baiting gives cover to Democrat policies that are daily destroying the black community, the black family, and black men in particular. Democrats have robbed far too many black Americans of their independence, dignity, and hope. The Democrat kleptocracy feeds off the eternal “war on poverty” and affirmative action programs. Race-baiting is the Democrats’ big gift to the country.

The actual transcript of what President Trump said about Charlottesville is public, for all to see. Joel Pollack at Breitbart has debunked the Charlottesville hoax repeatedly, simply by citing President Trump’s actual words from his press conference. The president clearly distinguished between neo-Nazis, Antifa, and good, normal people protesting the destruction of historical statues. He clearly “condemned totally” the white nationalists.

TRUMP: . . . you had some very bad people in that group. But you also had people that were very fine people on both sides. You had people in that group – excuse me, excuse me. I saw the same pictures as you did. You had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down, of to them, a very, very important statue and the renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name.

REPORTER: George Washington and Robert E. Lee are not the same.

TRUMP: Oh no, George Washington was a slave owner. Was George Washington a slave owner? So will George Washington now lose his status? Are we going to take down—excuse me. Are we going to take down, are we going to take down statues to George Washington? How about Thomas Jefferson? What do you think of Thomas Jefferson? You like him? OK, good. Are we going to take down his statue? He was a major slave owner. Are we going to take down his statue? You know what? It’s fine, you’re changing history, you’re changing culture, and you had people—and I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally—but you had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists, OK? And the press has treated them absolutely unfairly. Now, in the other group also, you had some fine people, but you also had troublemakers and you see them come with the black outfits and with the helmets and with the baseball bats—you had a lot of bad people in the other group, too.

Do a Google search on the Biden launch video. Not a single conservative analysis comes up. Are we really to believe that Google’s listing of page after page of liberal outlets respects the order of hits on news websites, and that not even the Wall Street Journal or a Fox News host makes the grade?

First up is Politico: “Some hailed it as stroke of genius that distinguished Biden from the crowded Democratic field by announcing in stark terms his intention to take the fight to Trump in a way no one else has dared.” As a critic, Politico quotes Neil Sroka, an Obama campaign veteran and Sanders supporter: “The video is incredibly bizarre. It’s oppressively focused on Trump while raising the question: Why did it take until Charlottesville to tell you Trump was a nightmare?”

For the country, it is the Democrats’ reliance on race-baiting lies that is the nightmare.

One disgusted Trump supporter issued a hilarious corrected Biden launch video.

No Democrats will read the corrections. Biden will not be fact checked. No major media outlet will do an exposé on race-baiting and the cost it inflicts on our country.

With his campaign launch, Joe Biden has put himself at the head of a pack of slanderers, trying to claw their way to power by lying about the sufferings of blacks and Jews for political gain.

The correction will come in 2020, unless the Democrats find a way to scam the national vote more successfully than the attempted Russian collusion hoax. Pathetic lies like Charlottesville can only carry them so far. It will be a day of triumph for President Trump’s unifying message that patriotism knows no skin color, and we are all united by our love of America.
