Mainstream media has condemned President Donald Trump for criticizing the “display of hatred, violence, and bigotry on many sides” in reference to the violent riot that broke out during a “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend. A new video, however, has been released by NBC and is proving that Trump was actually right for saying this.
NBC confirms that in the video below “both sides” showed up to the riot looking for a fight, as reported by The Daily Caller.
Trump asked reporters on Tuesday night, “What about the alt-left that came charging at, as you say, the alt-right? Do they have any semblance of guilt?”
The reporter stated, “Police say both protesters and counter-protesters came to Charlottesville ready for a fight.”
Independent Journal Review reported, Corinne Geller released a statement defending Trump’s comments and admitting that violence was really taking place on “all sides.”
“We were hoping that it would not elevate to this level of the violence that we witnessed amongst the participants in the crowds, on all sides,” Geller said. “They were throwing bottles, they were throwing soda cans with cement in them. […]”
Also in defense of our President was former Governor Mike Huckabee:
“And so what is he supposed to say?” Huckabee questioned. “Is he supposed to do what Barack Obama used to do and jump to conclusion and make a decision like he did in Ferguson, Missouri, which turned out to be totally untrue?”
He continued, “The president has to be careful in taking steps. I thought what he condemned was what we all could immediately condemn and that was the violence, the car some coward in a car drove into innocent people to try and kill them. And he condemned that! What else is he supposed to do at that point?”
“I have got a special repulsion to white supremacists and it’s part because I’m white, it’s part because I have seen this evil and hateful attitude that elevates some people above others,” Huckabee concluded, “I don’t know of anyone who is doing anything other than condemning the violence and condemning the very spirit of white supremacy.”
