Alt-Left Bought and Paid For by Mainstream Media

August 18, 2017 - 12:45pm

Enough already.

Moderate-Republican elected officials, calm down and take a lude.

Mainstream Media, you’ve run the storyline into the ground now for four days.

Give it a break.

I’ve not been President Donald Trump’s biggest fan. I supported Jeb Bush first, then Marco Rubio. I was even willing to give Ted Cruz a try.

But, Trump won the nomination.

It wasn’t pretty and I sure as hell never expected him to win.

But he did, and yet the Democratic Communist Party, a/k/a “The Resistance,” has taken hold and the MSM is doing everything they can every day to make them look good, and the president look bad.

Get over it, he won.

Now, let’s talk about what happened in Charlottesville.

All sane, intelligent, normal people (did I get all of us in there?), know and understand and rightfully condemn the Neo-Nazi/White Supremacists' vulgar, racist, disgusting, violent diatribes.

No one I know has anything good to say about David Duke.

But, just because Duke likes Trump, doesn’t make Trump a racist.

It’s no different than Black Lives Matter supporting Obama.  

Did Obama condemn BLM when they were looting, lighting fires, pillaging, injuring people?

No.

But the MSM didn’t utter a word.

Not a challenge.

Not a peep.

How dare the MSM now try to tie Trump with the neo-Nazis when they treated Obama with kid gloves because they were of the same ideological stripe.

How convenient.

Since when must Trump satisfy the alt-left, the intelligentsia, the Hollywood elite, Kareem Abdul Jabar, the New York liberal crowd with his comments?

One thing you have to say about Trump is that he uses words inarticulately.  

That’s especially dangerous in diplomacy (that’s another column!).

But you know what?

The average American knows what Trump is saying.

He may not be a smooth-talking politician, but aren’t we all tired of that -- which is part of the reason Trump got elected?

He talks and thinks like us.

Oh, I know. It’s not good to be off-the-cuff, and the media have fun with it because they expect Trump to meet the mold of every other politician, many of whom, quite honestly, said one thing and did another.

At least with Trump we know what we got.

Trump got it right the first time.  He said what he needed to say.

Was it what we would expect from a president?

No, because we expect presidents to let their speech writers draft a statement, rehearse their lines, then come out and speak to America.

Don’t you get it, MSM?

That’s not Trump's modus operandi.

He’s going to say what he thinks.  

Indeed, that can be concerning, but I don’t mind him doing that if he’s honest in what he says.

And Lord knows, he’s honest -- just too honest for the MSM who wants a prototype politician who will say all the right things whether he means them or not.

MSM: If an outright condemnation wasn’t good enough for you initially, then just go to your safe space, little snowflakes, because he’s not going to do what you want him to do, he’s going to say what he wants in a way that the average American will understand.

And in plain English, just liked he talked to Kim Sam Dung.

Trust me, we understood what Trump was saying and so did that little, chubby dictator with the neo-Nazi haircut!

What the MSM reports that Trump said about Charlottesville is not what he really said.

Enter, fake news.

The president initially condemned what happened in Virginia.

And he condemned both sides, because it takes two sides to have a fight.

The president was right from the beginning.

Did the neo-Nazis/White Supremacists start the fight? Sure they did. They were looking for a fight.

But the alt-left was there and they were only too happy to oblige.

He didn’t even try to draw a moral equivalency between the right and the left, that’s what the MSM interpreted because they want to put Trump in the worst light.

And when he said there were good people, average Americans KNOW he wasn’t talking about the Nazis, he was talking about average citizens who are rightfully concerned about losing a part of our history that is intertwined with our culture here in the South.

But when the alt-left vandalized and tore down the confederate statute in Durham, N.C., other than showing the picture, there has not been a word uttered on television or in print about those instigators who, once again, became violent, broke the law and damaged a statute.

To Nancy Pelosi: Shut up!

We’re not the Soviet Union, China or Cuba.

We don’t allow revisionism history in our society as the commies do because, while we may not be proud of our forefathers, we don’t use 21st Century standards and apply them to 18th Century America.

The confederate statutes and plaques are a “teachable” lesson about the good, the bad, and the ugly of American history.

When we elected Trump, we dismissed political correctness.

Nancy, I know you and your ilk didn’t get the message, but it’s true.

Americans are fed up with this PC crap.

You’re not going to make us think like y’all, even though you control the print media, television, schools and higher education, Hollywood and those pathetic sports figures who refuse to stand up for America during our national anthem.

We all know America isn’t perfect. But you rich, stuck-up, snooty, puff bags can go to Russia, Europe or any other country anytime you want.

You won’t, because you won’t continue to make your money.

We Americans aren’t going to let you trash our history, make us feel guilty, or rob us of our heritage, regardless of how hard you might try.

One last note:

MSM, you’re making the alt-right so famous. You’re making their day.

You’re allowing Duke to spread his venom.

You’re giving them a podium to speak to America.

Get hold of yourselves. No wonder they’re emboldened, with your stupid, daily drumbeat.

Remember, you did the same thing with Trump when he first started running and then you couldn’t stop him.

Instead, why don’t all you libs in the media look at the REAL problems that Americans have with a lack of jobs, good, affordable and meaningful health care, a tax plan that will lift our country and an infrastructure plan that will Make America Great Again.

That’s what we care about.

By reading the comments we all can see how divided this country really is. Yes, President Trump is not very "presidential", but was elected because the people wanted change. The MSM should stop blaming him for everything which only fans the flames of thr country's division!

Barney, thank you so much for saying what needed to be said in a simple, articulate way. You are a true Patriot - whether you are right, left or whatever. You are an American, as I also am. I voted for Trump because I knew he was the only Republican who had the ability to pull our country back from the brink of disaster. Those wimps that were on the stage with this man during the Primaries would have all caved to the leftest path we've been on for at least my lifetime and I'm 74 years old. I know there are good Dems out there who like you are outraged at what we are seeing. What happened to facts??? There are many ways to get to a good solution for all of our problems. But, we'll never get there if we allow anarchy to flourish and take over news cycles. Spreading fake history is all part of the fake news. I worry for our children who are being fed propaganda by those who want to see our country destroyed beyond repair. We need a two party system in this country. Where are the Democrats who loved our country and respected opinions different from their own? Where are the Democrats who were sad that the Bush family won those elections but managed to go on with their lives to fight another day? That is the way it works in this country. I didn't think I'd survive Obama; but, I did! We need to help Trump succeed. Who doesn't want what he is trying to do for this country? Once we are economically sound once again, we can get back to working on social issues. A broke country is Venezuela. Does the far left want that for the U.S.? I fear they do.

Trump might think and act like you as an American, but not as me, and thankfully, not like a lot of Americans, and not like an example for Americans everywhere, especially children should act. He is a disgrace to the office. You are a disgrace to journalism. To somehow say it takes two to tango, when a young woman lost her life due to hate and violence on display is not only stupid, but shameful... You and people like you are part of the problem, instead of being part of the solution...

Be careful Barney, don't get caught in the roiling, circular current that's steadily washing the corrupted Democrat Political Party swiftly down the drain into oblivion (going the way of the old "Whig Party")... Indictments and prosecutions to follow (beginning with the compulsive liar, Debbie Wasserman..., and hopefully continuing and including Al Sharpton and the people he visited in the "White House" on more than eighty occasions from 2008 thru 2016... JUSTICE MUST BE SERVED ! signed:// "a recovering Democrat"

Here! Here! ~Another Recovering Life Long Democrat and Native Tallahassean

Is there a misprint? It says that you are a Democrat. You sir, are no Democrat. I have never read such an unintelligent piece of scribble and the amount of people who agree with you is terrifying. I do like the technique of double spacing after each blurb. It makes your fourth grade reading ability follower able to digest the garbage you spew. No one is trying to erase anyone's history. People are calling for the statues to be put in museums. There is a difference between remembering and memorializing. Replace them with statues of heroes who fought for freedom for all Americans.

Great article Barney, haven't seen a reference to "ludes" in a long time. Hey even with all his warts and stupid comments he's still a thousand times better than the criminal in a pantsuit.

You petulant old man!! Where were you when Mitch McConnell declared Obama would be a one-term president. Where you you when the Republican Congress obstructed nearly every initiative Obama championed? Where were you when McConnell and his Republican thugs stole a Supreme Court justice from a president that was elected twice by the American people. We have had to endure eight years of absolute bull from the Obama haters and now it's us who should "get over it"? Take a hike.

Disgusted: Wow, you are so far LEFT that the Flat Earth Society would have seen you fall off! Would you consider yourself a Socialist or a Communist? D.C. is a "Swamp" mostly because you Lefties LOVE Big Government and think this is a "Democracy". FLASH! America is a "REPUBLIC", but with your intelligence, we might have to add "Banana" in front of "Republic" if things go YOUR way.

Tampaguy - its your GOP that has turned this country into a Banana Republic, with trying to "control" this country on the Cheap. - No one on the left is advocating to nationalize any industry, no one on the left wants to regulate a woman's overies, no one on the left is trying to stop people from loving who they want. Yet all you guys think that all we lefties want is big government. Big government for the sake of being big is not right either. But! Government where a society is managed and not control has really never been tried. Maybe if the "Right Slanted" Liberal Media start informing instead of scaring, just maybe things will turn to the better. WHY IS THE RIGHT SO AFRAID OF EQUALITY?

Right on Barney! It still takes two to tango. The Altleft came to fight and were obliged by the Altright. Neithet side can claim the moral high ground.

I agree entirely, any ideology which utilizes violence to make a statement is a flawed and/or corrupt. This matter should be settled in a courthouse, not in a street fight.

Well said Barney Hillary and Obama can lie right to the face of parents who they let their sons get killed and that's ok.

Major Bad - be specific what are those lies? Have those "lies" caused 4000 troops to lose their lives (remember Iraq?) Just one example as to who's been lying but its OK - to spend 4 plus trillion dollars on a lie and then call out Barney, Hillary and Obama. Sadly the Right Slanted Liberal Media doesn't call guys like you out.

Good Article....I appreciate it.

Barney - This from Mitt Romney. You are now discrediting yourself. "I will dispense for now from discussion of the moral character of the president's Charlottesville statements. Whether he intended to or not, what he communicated caused racists to rejoice, minorities to weep, and the vast heart of America to mourn. His apologists strain to explain that he didn't mean what we heard. But what we heard is now the reality, and unless it is addressed by the president as such, with unprecedented candor and strength, there may commence an unraveling of our national fabric. The leaders of our branches of military service have spoken immediately and forcefully, repudiating the implications of the president's words. Why? In part because the morale and commitment of our forces--made up and sustained by men and women of all races--could be in the balance. Our allies around the world are stunned and our enemies celebrate; America's ability to help secure a peaceful and prosperous world is diminished. And who would want to come to the aid of a country they perceive as racist if ever the need were to arise, as it did after 9/11? In homes across the nation, children are asking their parents what this means. Jews, blacks, Hispanics, Muslims are as much a part of America as whites and Protestants. But today they wonder. Where might this lead? To bitterness and tears, or perhaps to anger and violence? The potential consequences are severe in the extreme. Accordingly, the president must take remedial action in the extreme. He should address the American people, acknowledge that he was wrong, apologize. State forcefully and unequivocally that racists are 100% to blame for the murder and violence in Charlottesville. Testify that there is no conceivable comparison or moral equivalency between the Nazis--who brutally murdered millions of Jews and who hundreds of thousands of Americans gave their lives to defeat--and the counter-protestors who were outraged to see fools parading the Nazi flag, Nazi armband and Nazi salute. And once and for all, he must definitively repudiate the support of David Duke and his ilk and call for every American to banish racists and haters from any and every association. This is a defining moment for President Trump. But much more than that, it is a moment that will define America in the hearts of our children. They are watching, our soldiers are watching, the world is watching. Mr. President, act now for the good of the country."

You have made "misconstrue" into the MONSTER that describes your mistaken attitude so eloquently. You are a pretty good orator, but you have chosen the wrong side to follow --- considering that Obama "set things up" during his 8-year tenure as POTUS. I'll bet that the AGENDA-21, New World Order, and the Dark Government absolutely LOVE you.

You need to leave the dark side, Barney. Blue Dogs, are no longer welcomed, in the democrap party. Just read all the comments.

Great article - written by an old southern white man.

I wish President Trump said that he condemns those who fight to overturn the American Revolution. That includes white racists, black racists, Nazis, and Antifa.

Do you have any idea what Antifa is Rodney? If you did you wouldn't have it on this list. You would be grateful that there are some human beings on this planet that fight fascism - unlike Heil Trump!

There's more going on in the left that reprents Hitler's agenda than anywhere else. Abortion at a high rate, propping up the league's to think they are fighting for their cause. It's only noise. Lots of noise so that only half the population sees what's happening. The other is knitting pink caps or tye-dying tu-tus or deciding what black hoody matches what black facemask to see the fat white men above pulling all the strings. Even those who see it are too weak to break out of the crazy trenches to do anything about it.

Don't you mean "Heil" Stalin! or "Heil" Mao!? These two murdered more people than the Fascists...All In all, Communists killed far more people in the 20th century than Fascists! Joe Stalin, Chairman Mao, Pol Pot, Castro and your Hero Che.........

Bish it is a shame that you can bring so many of their horses to water but you can't make them drink. More ludes maybe.

Landslide? Losing by almost 3 million votes is a landslide WIN? Take your pills and go back to sleep.

Most of Hillary's 3 million vote margin came from one state - California. Trump won in the arena that counts, The Electoral College, and it wasn't even close.

Uh huh, Tell us, WHO is President NOW, and Who is licking her wounds?

Typical liberal. The popular vote is meaningless.

...another moron, ignorant of history, speaks (or rather "squeeks")..!

Great post, Barney. Trump says exactly what most of us are thinking. That's why he got elected in a landslide
