Shortly after violence erupted in Charlottesville, Va., on Saturday, where white supremacists and Left-wing anarchists battled one another over the fate of a Civil War monument, President Donald J. Trump tweeted out this message:
“We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for. There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come together as one!”
To the disgustingly dishonest establishment media that wasn’t good enough. They insisted — no, demanded — that the president call out only the white supremacist organizations by name who reportedly had attended the Charlottesville protest in some capacity.
So, bending to the request Trump took time on Monday to address specifically that racial hate espoused by the KKK and other white nationalist organizations would not be tolerated.
We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for. There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come together as one!

Not good enough.
Oh, Trump didn’t condemn those groups quickly enough, the chattering Left-wing commentariat in the media complained. And when he finally did, ‘it was only because we forced him to — he didn’t really mean it and we don’t believe him!’
Like former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Monday in an interview with Fox News, no matter what this president says or does, the haters are gonna hate and the Alt-Left is gonna riot.
“…[C]learly there was a hunger for him to use the specific phrases about white supremacists and about the KKK and about Nazis. He came back today (Monday afternoon), he said every single thing that his critics on the left want. So now you have crowds that are saying ‘well, he didn’t say it soon enough.’ I just want to suggest to you – there’s an anti-Trump movement in this country that will never, ever be satisfied as long as he’s president,” Gingrich said.
Absolutely right. But the former speaker reminded viewers of this nugget, too: “By the way, remember, it’s Donald Trump who, last year, in the campaign, repudiated David Duke, he repudiated the KKK and in his inaugural, he said ‘all of us bleed the same color’ and ‘to be racist is to be un-American.”
Again, not good enough. It’s Trump, after all, so the false narratives — that’s he’s racist, bigoted, homophobic — will endure no matter what.
I want to be clear about something: Yes, I’m part of “the media,” but not part of the establishment media that is responsible for ginning up and then perpetuating so much vile hatred of Trump that it’s literally making people on the Left insane.
Consider this: As reported by The Daily Caller, Left-wing extremists “doxxed” a University of Arkansas professor, Kyle Quinn, and began calling him out on social media because they believe he was one of the right-wing extremists marching in favor of white supremacy in Charlottesville.
Only, as The New York Times reported, Quinn was nowhere near the city on Friday night; he was 1,000 miles away in Bentonville, Ark., having dinner with his wife and viewing an art exhibit.
The Times noted:
Mr. Quinn, who runs a laboratory dedicated to wound-healing research, was quickly flooded with vulgar messages on Twitter and Instagram, he said in an interview on Monday. Countless people he had never met demanded he lose his job, accused him of racism and posted his home address on social networks.
He had been misidentified.
The right-wing protest marcher carrying a tiki torch Friday night that Quinn was mistaken for sported an “Arkansas Engineering” t-shirt; Quinn teaches at the facility. The marcher had a beard and similar build to Quinn as well.
But it wasn’t him.
“You have celebrities and hundreds of people doing no research online, not checking facts,” Quinn told Times, “I’ve dedicated my life to helping all people, trying to improve health care and train the next generation of scientists, and this is potentially throwing a wrench in that.”
This is the establishment media’s fault. They are responsible for creating and then enabling an outsized hatred for Trump because it empowers them and advances their anti-American political objectives. (Related: The real goal of the intolerant Left is the outright extermination of conservative White culture (and elimination of the First Amendment.)
It’s time someone held them responsible.
