Joe Biden recently doubled down on the fine-people hoax, which has been a cornerstone of his campaign:
Three years ago today, white supremacists descended on Charlottesville with torches in hand and hate in their hearts. Our president said they were "very fine people."
It was clear then, and it’s clear now: We are in a battle for the soul of our nation, and we must win.
Biden Twitter, August 12
In contrast to Biden’s claims, a transcript shows that Trump actually condemned the very people that Biden claims he called “fine people”:
. . .you had some very bad people in that group, but you also had people that were very fine people, on both sides . . .I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists – because they should be condemned totally.
For a full transcript see:
Jake Tapper at CNN even agreed:
Now, elsewhere in those remarks, Trump did condemn neo-Nazis and white supremacists. So he’s not saying that the neo-Nazis and white supremacists are very fine people.
Of course true believers in the fine-people hoax immediately discount the possibility that anyone could have attended the rally who was there to support keeping the statues but was unconnected to the Neo-Nazis and white nationalists. On the other hand, reports from the New York Times in August 2017 actually support Trump’s statements:
”Good people can go to Charlottesville,” said Michelle Piercy, a night shift worker at a Wichita, Kan., retirement home, who drove all night with a conservative group that opposed the planned removal of a statue of the Confederate general Robert E. Lee.
After listening to Mr. Trump on Tuesday, she said it was as if he had channeled her and her friends — all gun-loving defenders of free speech, she said, who had no interest in standing with Nazis or white supremacists . . .
Additional confirmation comes from Scott Adams who has similar interviews:
At this point the true believers usually come back that support of keeping Confederate monuments inherently supports white supremacy. The counterpoint comes from a PBS poll from the time that showed that 44% of African Americans believed that the statues should “remain as a historical symbol” compared to 40% who wanted them removed.
Were African Americans who supported keeping the statues really “white supremacists”?
The recent violent protests and riots further show the Democrats’ delusions. They have had a mantra about “mostly peaceful” BLM/Antifa protests that have frequently turned violent and resulted in looting, arson, and dozens of deaths. Yet Biden staff members have been sending money to the Minnesota Freedoms Fund to bail out violent BLM/Antifa extremists. Likewise Kamala Harris has actively raised money for the same fund. Here is a description of two of the people they helped to bail out:
According to attempted murder charges, Jaleel Stallings shot at members of a SWAT Team during the riots in May. Police recovered a modified pistol that looks like an AK-47. MFF paid $75,000 in cash to get Stallings out of jail. Darnika Floyd is charged with second degree murder, for stabbing a friend to death. MFF paid $100,000 cash for her release.
Has the Biden/Harris campaign been falsely accusing Trump of calling violent extremists “fine people”, while they are actually supporting and funding violent extremists?
Are the walls finally closing in on the infamous fine-people hoax?
Or are supporters of the hoax so blinded by their ideology that facts are irrelevant?
