CNN’s Wolf Blitzer was anchoring the network’s breaking news coverage Thursday afternoon on the possible radical Islamic terror attack in Barcelona, Spain when he made the inartful and arguably pathetic assertion that the truck attack could be “a copycat” of the neo-Nazi car attack on Saturday in Charlottesville, Virginia. 


Political reporters sounded like they were headed for fainting couches after President Trump’s press event at Trump Tower. Reporters professed incredulity that Trump would continue to criticize “anti-fascist” violence, as if those events mattered. The president's declaration that there were fine people on “both sides” of Saturday’s events sounded like people marching with Nazi flags were fine. But the media protected Barack Obama when he sounded tone-deaf after Americans died.


Ordinarily, this is a mostly fun column to point out how extremely whacky the alt-left is in America. We’ll get to that, but first, it’s important to know that the alt-left is also violent and dangerous.

The media have gone berserk, angry that President Trump dared call out the left for its own violent lunatics. “I do think there's blame on both sides. You look at both sides. I think there's blame on both sides and I have no doubt about it and you don't have any doubt about it either and- and- and- and if you reported it accurately, you would say it,” explained the president.


As the left mobilizes mobs to tear down confederate statues (and peace monuments) from city-to-city, it was only a matter of time before they would be going after our Founding Fathers. On CNN Thursday morning, liberal analyst Angela Rye argued that our nation’s first president was as detestable as Robert E. Lee because he was a slave owner. “To me, I don't care if it's a George Washington statue or Thomas Jefferson, they all need to come down,” she said before ranting about America’s “very violent past.”


In the aftermath of Charlottesville, when the term “hate group” is used, images of the KKK and neo-nazis immediately come to mind.

However, according to CNN, the real hate groups to watch out for are the conservative organizations, specifically Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), the Family Research Council (FRC), American Family Association and ACT for America.

 


Media Research Center President Brent Bozell on Thursday chastised Donald Trump for allowing himself to be baited by liberal journalists out to get him. Talking to FBN’s Stuart Varney about the events in Charlottesville and the press conference that followed, Bozell marveled, “They know they can bait him."


Republicans are doomed, once again, this time on the front of Thursday’s New York Times: Split in Party After Remarks on Racial Past -- Political Class Recoils; Voter Base Cheers.” The online headline is blunter: “Trump’s Embrace of Racially Charged Past Puts Republicans in Crisis,” reported by Jeremy Peters, Jonathan Martin, and Jack Healy. None of those reporters are renowned for giving Republicans an even break, and they take glee in shoveling dirt on a party that their paper has consigned to the ashbin so many times before (including before the last election), using some of the same Republican voices that were wrong then to do the work.


After Wednesday’s NBC Nightly News devoted an entire report to elevating the racist views of a white nationalist, on Thursday’s Today, correspondent Gabe Gutierrez claimed the network wanted to avoid promoting such offensive extremists: “Experts who track these groups say that they feel emboldened and are not going away. And while we don’t want to provide a platform for these fringe voices, it’s important to understand who they are.”
 


Lost amidst all the mainstream media furor over what President Trump said about the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, when he said it, and who he condemned is any real analysis on their part about why that violence occurred in the first place. Specifically why were the state and local police ordered to stand down, allowing the white nationalists and Antifa groups to clash.

Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe claimed that the state police were ordered to stand down because of stashed weapons caches around Charlottesville and because militiamen on the scene were better armed than the police. An investigation (something the MSM has failed to do) by Reason magazine reveals that not only were these flat out falsehoods but that the New York Times actually edited out some McAuliffe quotes on this after initially publishing them.


President Trump drew tremendous criticism from the liberal media when he noted that there was violence in Charlottesville, Virginia “on all sides.” But despite its own hammering of the President, MSNBC brought on a staunch supporter of Antifa during MTP Daily to champion their violent approach to stopping opponents, as they displayed in Charlottesville. Host Chuck Todd, a self-proclaimed political referee, offered little to no push back against his violently radical guest.


Oprah’s OWN Network premiered the latest season of its mega-church drama Greenleaf, which centers around Calvary World Ministries and the Greenleaf family who runs it, on Tuesday, August 15. The show picked back up where it left off…with a newly-divorced Christian father struggling with his gay desires.


It’s no secret that Hollywood takes joy in bashing Christianity. Syfy’s new show Blood Drive, which takes place in a dystopian world destroyed by fracking, just joined the slew of liberal TV shows with anti-Christian plotlines. Wednesday’s episode “Scar Tissue,” had lead characters Arthur (Alan Ritchson) and Grace (Christina Ochoa) held captive in a town where everyone is drugged into believing they live in a Utopia. Grace discovers that the town supposedly filled with beautiful and happy individuals is actually a wasteland full of disfigured, sore-covered people due to the trickery of the Reverend. When she tries to reveal the truth to Arthur, the Reverend stops her, saying, “Beloved, ‘charm is deceitful. And beauty is vanity. But the woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.’ Proverbs 30:31.


If you can pull from the wall-to-wall coverage of President Trump’s press coverage for the third day in a row, you will find that NBC recently premiered its latest sitcom Marlon on August 26. Marlon focuses Marlon Williams (Marlon Wayans) keeping up a cordial relationship with his ex-wife Ashley (Essence Atkins) as they raise their kids together. In contrast with the racially-charged and often hostile voices in the media, the show comes off as surprisingly harmless. But even in one episode, that feeling can’t last.


In the wake of President Trump’s wild press conference in the lobby of Trump Tower, the Big Three Networks put extra focus on Trump, along with questions about how he views race in the United States. So come Wednesday, NBC Nightly News aired a report where they sat down with a self-described white nationalist to hear him sing the praises of the President. In contrast, CBS Evening News held a small focus group where they spoke with three Republican women, two black and one white, who defended Trump.


The political violence in Charlottesville and President Trump's repudiation of it have been covered in the most widely divergent ways by two national Spanish-language television networks, one based in Los Angeles and the other in Miami.
