Joe Biden Faces Backlash From Both Sides After He Perpetuates Charlottesville Smear Against Trump

Joe Biden Faces Backlash From Both Sides After He Perpetuates Charlottesville Smear Against Trump

With their refusal to correct the record on this lie, the mainstream media has effectively sided with Democrats in the 2020 presidential race.

As Mary wrote earlier today, Joe Biden officially launched his 2020 presidential campaign with a video and tweet evoking the August 2017 Charlottesville riots.

On Trump’s remarks in the aftermath of Charlottesville, Biden said:

“He said there were, quote, ‘Some very fine people on both sides.’ Very fine people on both sides? With those words the president of the United States assigned a moral equivalence between those spreading hate and those with the courage to stand against it. And in that moment I knew the threat to this nation was unlike any other I’d seen in my lifetime.”

This just. did. not. happen.

Trump did not equate “those spreading hate” to “those with the courage to stand against it.” This lie has been debunked numerous times, and was done so again today by Scott Adams:


In spite of all the evidence to the contrary, Democrats continue to get away with saying it.

Many on social media called out Biden’s use of Charlottesville as the primary motivator for his presidential campaign:

It had been rumored for a few days that Biden was going to make his announcement in Charlottesville. At the time, some Virginia residents expressed disbelief:

Others, including UVA alums, did not find the video amusing:

On a related note, the Democratic party’s emerging socialist wing made it official today that Biden is not their choice:

So Biden’s clearly lying, Virginia activists are aghast that he would use Charlottesville as a prop, and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) Justice Dems have drawn a line in the (primary) sand against Biden.

Where is the mainstream media in the middle of all this? Dutifully (and gleefully) reporting on Biden’s much-anticipated announcement while again failing to call out his dishonest use of the out of context “fine people” quote. Their fact checkers, too, are out to lunch on this issue.

With their refusal to correct the record on this lie, the mainstream media has effectively sided with Democrats in the 2020 presidential race.

“You don’t need an AR-15 to defend yourself. Just buy a shotgun!”

    One warning shot off the balcony and one shot through the front door.

    I think “Shotgun Joe” makes a really good nickname.
    Trump should use it!
    It would really rile up the dems.

      I like lying-sleepy Joe or Hypocrite Joe. Rolling out your campaign with a vicious lie while pretending to be concerned about the moral direction of the country.

      Gropin’ Joe BiteMe. He remembers when President Roosevelt went on TV in 1929. Campaign season is going to be a barrel of laughs with this gaffe machine.

        You are assuming his gaffes get reported. Fox News didn’t cover the vicious Charlottesville lie tonight on The Special Report Panel.

          With the exception of its prime time line-up FNC isn’t much different from CNN. It hired two leftists (Juan Williams and Donna Brazile) that even the MSM won’t touch.

    It seems that too many people do not understand the difference between an AR15 and a M15 and agree that a 12ga shotgun may be a better choice for close quarter self defense. That said, that choice is solely ours.

This isn’t really surprising coming from “Grope and Chains” (aka Plugs) Biden.

This guy has a history of telling bald-faced lies to still up racial animosity.

Biden does not really know the difference between truth and lies. He bizarrely changes history every time. The most egregious was claiming the truck driver who was in the accident that killed his first wife was drunk. In fact the truck driver was cleared of any wrong in the accident by a very thorough investigation. But Biden always tosses himself in the mix and this was a necessary fiction so it became truth to him.

Agitprop! Murmurs from Stalin , Lenin and Geobbles applaud.

Come on, kids. You can’t be surprised or taken aback by this. Why would you expect anything else?

As long s the Dems and the media are in cahoots, garbage like this will continue. Not much we can do. Same old s*_t.

    Perhaps because he’s been working so bloody long on his debut. One might expect a serious professional, even a Democrat, to come out with a better theme. But he gives us a clumsy, tired old slander instead.

    I certainly didn’t expect much. But I still expected better. Not “better” as in “real” or “honest”, but “better” as in “adequate for the job”. This guy just isn’t very good. But in that case I’d expect him to hire somebody who is. He’s too stupid to do even that.

    Terence G. Gain in reply to tiger66. | April 25, 2019 at 5:08 pm

    Yes. He wouldn’t tell such a vicious and provable lie if he wasn’t sure the media would cover his back.

      LOL, “…the mainstream media has effectively sided with Democrats in the 2020 presidential race.” Hey, Rip van Winkle, you just waking up?

      The mainstream media has been a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Democrat party for a long, long time now. Instapundit calls the media “Democrats with bylines,” which is both cutting and true! Any gaffe or lie that Biden says will be covered over or not covered at all.

      Similarly, President Trump calls the outlets that push lies as part of their propaganda effort “Fake News,” but he’s not referring to media as a whole (another frequent lie from that self-same “fake news media”) but only the ones spreading the lies: unfortunately for us, that’s most of the MSM.

      It amazes me that anyone believes anything at all that comes from our lying media. They literally know nothing, and are simply distributing propaganda most of the time; sadly this extends to events as well as politics.

      “Is this true, or did you get it from the media?” should be the question we’re all asking!

This is what the Dims and the msm did to Sarah Palin about “You can see Russia from my state to “You can see Russia from my front porch”. They all knew it was a lie but they hated her as much as they hate Trump. The msm will never point out one of Joe’s many lies but they cannot wait to jump on any Trump misstatement. They all are truly unethical people and power is all that matters.

Public sector unions are a Democrat funding system which funnels tax dollars into Democrat campaign accounts while also creating a paid Democrat voter base. The entire system is a method of fraud and should be illegal. This is funding corrupt government officials working against the interests of the people. The Unions pay campaign contributions to Democrats then when the Democrats get elected they approve pay raises to union workers who vote for the Democrats in order to get them in office to approve more pay raises. This needs to end!

Joe also said “our democracy is at stake”. He’s not qualified to be president. He doesn’t even know we’re a Constitutional Republic.

    murkyv in reply to lc. | April 25, 2019 at 6:57 pm

    It’s been going on for a long time, but this year it really jumps out at me that every single candidate and Liberal talking head is referring to our “Democracy” as often as they can fit it into a comment.

    Obviously a planned strategery to make their Lunatic and mostly ignorant base think Democrats would be the only and the obvious choice to lead a Democracy

notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital | April 25, 2019 at 5:55 pm

Why do the current photographs of ol’ Joe
make him look so…..oh…..

Well DEAD????????

Sounds as though Joe is gonna run his campaign like Hillary did hers. Nothing to offer, but Trump is a really bad man and I’m not!

fore long people will be reminded that Biden sought the Dems presidential nomination for more than 20 years and never rose above 3%. The only reason Biden didn’t screw up as VP is because Obama never game him anything to do.
