Left’s ‘Big Lie’
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.” – Joseph Goebbels
Joe Biden finally launched his 2020 presidential campaign the other day, basing it on a bald-face lie.
The lie, promulgated and spread by the Left and its complicit pals in the media, took flight after a white nationalist in 2017 plowed his car into a Charlottesville, Va., crowd, killing one and injuring several others. Trump’s reaction was labeled as “racist,” with him supposedly saying there were “good white nationalists and bad white nationalists” or “good neo-Nazis and bad neo-Nazis” at the rally.
That oft-repeated lie – Biden even spread it in his announcement to run – has been a cornerstone of the Left’s unending drive to smear Trump.
What Trump did say in a news conference three days after Charlottesville was that there were “very fine people” on “both sides” of the issue of whether it is appropriate to display Confederate monuments in pubic locations.
Here is what Trump said: “Excuse me, they didn’t put themselves down as neo-Nazis, and 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.”
Responding to another question Trump said, “I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally.”
Trump never said there were “good white nationalists and bad white nationalists” or “good neo-Nazis and bad neo-Nazis” at the rally. That was made up and spread by the media.
It has become, simply, the Left’s Big Lie.
