Are Chuck and Nancy overplaying their hand on political violence? By Paul Mirengoff.
In response to news that packages containing explosive devices were mailed to several high-profile Democrats, Trump condemned “these despicable acts” and called for national unity. “I want to say at these times we have to unify and send one very clear and strong message that acts of political violence of any kind have no place in the United States of America,” Trump declared.
How did Schumer respond? He issued a statement, along with Nancy Pelosi, essentially rejecting the president’s call. The two top congressional Democrats stated:
President Trump’s words ring hollow until he reverses his statements that condone acts of violence.
They then recited standard-issue Democrat talking points in a dishonest attempt to support of their assertion that Trump condones violence. They claimed, for example, that Trump “express[ed] support for the neo-Nazis who killed a young woman in Charlottesville.” This is a bald-faced lie.
You can only get way with such lies when the media is on your side. Otherwise the media would mercilessly expose the lie.
