The events in Charlottesville and the media-hyped aftermath of it are being used to destroy the Trump presidency. All mainstream media guns are being pointed at the president in an effort to paint him and his followers as racists and bigots, thereby proving their point that this man is not suited for the office of the presidency.
Give me a break.
Propaganda news like NBC and NPR have no interest in reporting the facts about Charlottesville. They have chosen their distorted narrative and are sticking to it. Interviews of politicians on both sides of the aisle but mostly on the left are being used to produce their concocted result that this was all Trump’s fault somehow.
So the story goes… It was Trump’s fault for stirring up this racist crowd during the campaign last year. His tagline to “Make America Great Again” and put “America First” empowered these individuals to come out of the woodwork and impose their bigotry on the world. However, this is not the case.
Putting America first means we are putting the interests of the American people before those of other nations. Mainstream media conflates this to mean we are only putting white Americans first. This is also false. Trump works for all Americans and he stirs up so much hatred because he is so effective. The left does not know what to do other than to demonize him and muddy his message. Which is why he goes around them and uses Twitter so much.
Paul Craig Roberts further clarifies the president’s message, “For example, how does the Bush/Cheney/Obama/neoconservative assertion that Americans are the ‘exceptional people’ whose country is the ‘indispensable country’ differ from Trump’s proclamation of ‘America first’?” It really does not. Both emphasize America’s greatness and point to elevating our country over others.
Is a political civil war imminent? Or are we already in the midst of it? As the progressive left continue to shove their white guilt propaganda down our throats and the mainstream media continue to parrot this divisive rhetoric, America is being divided into our respective politics as too many of us emphasize our identities. Long lost is the feeling that we are all united together in this great experiment called America.
Pat Buchanan asks the question what happens when we attempt to remove history and what do we become if we do that?
Many towns in the South have statues of Confederate soldiers looking toward the former Confederacy. Should we take them all down? The cry for taking down these statues and even monuments of our founding fathers are in danger of removal because they had slaves. Where does this stop? Five of the first seven presidents were slaveholders.
We can no longer commemorate our explosive and important history if people are offended by what certain folks did in the past. Things were quite different back then. And although the South was one of the last holdouts of slavery in the world, it was still not out of bounds during those days to profit off the backs of slaves. We must remember our history and improve ourselves in the future.
Today’s America treats everyone equally and the redistribution of wealth is the main tool in accomplishing this. Our culture is cracking today and becoming more tribal. Government solutions are championed far too often over free market alternatives. Homelessness is exploding. And we are separating ourselves into where we live based on a locale’s, which is no way to prosper as a nation.
We must learn to live with each other no matter our differences. There is nothing to gain from this rampant political violence that is now at a boiling point. Let people speak. Debate open and freely. Don’t bash people over the head unless you’re defending yourself. Disagree with their ideas, not their personality. We don’t have to all get along. We don’t have to destroy all memories of the past. We have to simply stop attacking each other.
This is the only way forward.
