Washington Post Decides To Write What Trump Should Have Said About Charlottesville

The Washington Post Editorial Board is in its normal snit fit mode, having decided to make the Charlottesville riot all about President Trump. Because #Resist. They’ve decided that what Trump said wasn’t presidential, so, they decided to create their own version of what a presidential president would say about the incident, because what Trump said just doesn’t fit in. I guess they’d prefer that he came off the golf course to make a speech, then head back for a few more holes. Which, BTW, I cannot find any condemnation of what Obama did regarding James Foley from the WPEB in the immediate few days.

What a presidential president would have said about Charlottesville

HERE IS what President Trump said Saturday about the violence in Charlottesville sparked by a demonstration of white nationalists, neo-Nazis and Ku Klux Klan members:

We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides. On many sides.

Here is what a presidential president would have said:

“The violence Friday and Saturday in Charlottesville, Va., is a tragedy and an unacceptable, impermissible assault on American values. It is an assault, specifically, on the ideals we cherish most in a pluralistic democracy — tolerance, peaceable coexistence and diversity.

Of course, it’s easy for the WPEB, who wrote this hours and hours after the event, rather than as it was happening. Of course, no matter what Trump said, La Resistance would find fault. Had Trump said the exact words the WPEB manufactured, they would have found fault.

What is vital now is a swift restoration of law and order and the protection of innocent lives. No citizen should ever fear for their safety and security in our society. And no child should ever be afraid to go outside and play or be with their parents and have a good time.

And we are here to provide whatever other assistance is needed. We are ready, willing and able. Above all else, we must remember this truth: No matter our color, creed, religion or political party, we are all Americans first. We love our country. We love our god.

We love our flag. We’re proud of our country. We’re proud of who we are, so we want to get the situation straightened out in Charlottesville, and we want to study it. And we want to see what we’re doing wrong as a country where things like this can happen. My administration is restoring the sacred bonds of loyalty between this nation and its citizens, but our citizens must also restore the bonds of trust and loyalty between one another. We must love each other, respect each other and cherish our history and our future together. So important. We have to respect each other. Ideally, we have to love each other.

Man, Trump just can’t get a …… oh, wait, that’s from his actual comments, made in the moment. In fact, the media, like the WPEB, are running with just tiny excerpts from Trump’s speech, which can put them out of context.

They actually would. Now, here’s something interesting from the made up WPEB “speech”

“To wink at racism or to condone it through silence, or false moral equivalence, or elision, as some do, is no better and no more acceptable than racism itself. Just as we can justly identify radical Islamic terrorism when we see it, and call it out, so can we all see the racists in Charlottesville, and understand that they are anathema in our society, which depends so centrally on mutual respect.

Um, what? Folks like the WPEB tell us that they aren’t Islamic. They have conniption fits when people condemn Islamic terrorism as being Islamophobes. They do all they can to avoid mentioning that the terrorists are Muslims. They have meltdowns over wanting to slow the flow of Muslims coming from hotbeds of Islamic extremism to make sure they aren’t Islamic extremists. Has anyone seen any big stories or opinion pieces emanating from the WP about female genital mutilation in the United States, which occurs in Muslim communities? No? How about the honor killings?

And the WP has barely ever touched on denouncing the racist Black Lives Matter movement, nor the violence that has occurred in their marches, nor their racist and violent rhetoric. Nor do they condemn the violence and horrific rhetoric from the #Resist folks. They want it both ways.

Moving on

“We may all have pressing and legitimate questions about how the violence in Charlottesville unfolded — and whether it could have been prevented. There will be time in coming days to delve further into those matters, and demand answers. In the meantime, I stand ready to provide any and all resources from the federal government to ensure there will be no recurrence of such violence in Virginia or elsewhere. Let us keep the victims of this terrible tragedy in our thoughts and prayers, and keep faith that the values enshrined in our Constitution and laws will prevail against those who would desecrate our democracy.”

Um, Trump did rather say something similar. Of course, if you think about it, the folks who actually look to desecrate our democracy (yes, yes, it’s a Republic) and violate our Constitution are a large chunk of those who vote Democrat. We could surely go into all the why’s and how’s and what’s, however, most are aware, and there are too many instances to delve into.

Regardless, the left is freaking out, and would no matter what. The NY Times says Trump’s comments were insufficient

If Trump said that flu shots are wonder and beautiful and everyone should get one, Democrats, led by the Washington Post and NY Times, would denounce getting flu shots.
