How could Charlottesville have been handled differently by the Blompf administration? Charlottesville Survivor at VDARE has a worthy take for the two year anniversary. The Republican donor class and worthless conservative grifters have ruined this administration.
“America is in the midst of another Ruling Class-orchestrated Moral Panicafter El Paso, this time aimed at suppressing all debate on immigration, two years after the Democrat mugging of the August 11-12 2017 Unite the Right rallies in Charlottesville VA. (Dayton, of course, has gone down the Memory Hole). But we would not be in this mess if the GOP, with the partial and, let it be said, honorable exception of President Trump (who unfortunately has not shown the same instincts about El Paso), had not fallen into a characteristic defensive crouch since August 2017. Hence this Alternative History.
Personally, I find it interesting—and infuriating—to have seen with my own eyes something that will go down in the history books and know those books will be full of deliberate lies. Thus leading Democrat presidential contender Joe Biden literally began his campaign by invoking the Charlottesville rally in 2017, showing the extent to which this event has turned into mythology, at least for the Leftist hysterics who now dominate his party.
Yet it didn’t have to be this way. Since we’re dealing with mythology, let’s think about what President Trump could have done. …
The investigation is focused on whether Mayor Signer or Governor McAuliffe conspired with the police chief to shut down the rally in advance. Spokesmen for both denied comment. “We believe the police followed specific orders to let the situation escalate to a point where the rally could be shut down because of violence,” said a DOJ spokesperson. “The question now is—who gave those orders?”
In response to questions from reporters about whether he is targeting Democrats, the president said he simply wants “the independent investigation to proceed without any interference.” …
Since the ill-fated 2017 rally, the federal government has also investigated so-called “anti-fascist” groups, or “anti-fa.” Since President Donald Trump’s inauguration, these groups have been increasingly active throughout the country and until recently, relatively unchallenged by federal law enforcement. The DOJ’s efforts were mostly condemned by progressives, but many were silenced following the widely videotaped attack on journalist Andy Ngo in Portland, Oregon. Video shows Ngo set upon by masked attackers while local police did nothing.
President Trump immediately announced a federal investigation into the Portland city government. “Can you imagine if people in red hats did this?” the president asked reporters. “Can you imagine if this happened to a Democrat in any red state? It would be the biggest story in the world. It would be the biggest crime since what happened to that actor, what’s his name, on that show. But seriously, Chicago is really MAGA country, believe me.”
The President was especially angered by the alleged attack on members of the United States Marine Corps by supposed Antifa in Philadelphia. “Where are the Democrats on this?” asked the president. “Where’s Keith Ellison? Where’s Nancy Pelosi? Where’s Maxine Waters? Where’s CNN—you know CNN loves these guys.” [Liberals cheer as Antifa violence escalates, by Andy Ngo, New York Post, July 17, 2019].
The Department of Justice also announced that 69-year-old Willem Van Spronsen, a Dutch immigrant, was peaceably detained on charges of planning to attack on Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility. Department of Homeland Security officials claim they found a manifesto, incendiaries, and a semiautomatic, unregistered “ghost” AR15. Gun control groups have refused comment. …”
Blompf has had countless opportunities to go on offense:
He could have came out swinging on Willem van Spronsen launching a terrorist attack on an ICE facility in Washington and declared Antifa domestic terrorist organization.
He could have had the DOJ investigate Portland over chronic Antifa violence.
He could have demonized and gone after Terry McAullife over Charlottesville.
He could have hammered Elizabeth Warren over the Dayton mass shooter supporting her campaign, but he let it drop off the radar screen like it never even happened.
There is no reason why he has to endorse Charlie Kirk and every piece of shit cuckservative running for Congress.
Instead of being neutered by Mitch McConnell and embracing Paul Ryan’s agenda, he could have continued the campaign against them.
Why on earth has he put Jared Kushner in charge of immigration policy?
The list of missed opportunities is endless.
