WaPo Poll: Americans OVERWHELMINGLY Disapprove of Trump’s Charlottesville Response Blaming Both Sides

TRUMP CATCHES THE ECLIPSE THROUGH SAFETY GLASSES.

In school, decades ago, we learned that “There are lies, damned lies, and statistics.”

Polls could fit in there too. Recall all the polls that predicted a landslide victory for Hillary Clinton.

The poll that’s the focus of this post could be as inaccurate as the polls that predicted a Hillary win.

On the other hand, the incessant fake media message that holding the violent, anti-American leftist thugs that attacked the Charlottesville patriots accountable for their actions makes you a Nazi, may have taken root in the American psyche.

The press ignored the patriots to zero in on a few people (infiltrators?) displaying swastikas. The talking heads on the TV news incessantly referred to the Unite the Right patriots as being allied with “Nazis.” Every American schoolchild is taught to hate Nazis, without any of the true history of that tragic era in history ever being told.

We have a big job in getting normies to understand the truth about the Antifa, Communism, anarchism, and history. That’s long term. In the short term we have to keep pushing the message that the Antifa are NOT friendly social justice warriors fighting for safe spaces, but rather thugs fighting because they love hurting and killing people.

Excerpt from the Washington Post Through NOLA

By The Washington Post

Twice as many Americans disapprove than approve of President Donald Trump’s response to the deadly Charlottesville, Virginia, protests led by white supremacists that ignited widespread political backlash against the White House, although a majority of Republicans offer at least tepid support in a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

Trump’s handling of the racially charged clashes at the Unite the Right rally Aug. 12 erupted into a major flashpoint in his administration and earned him rebukes from members of Congress, military leaders and major business executives. The president equivocated in denouncing the hate groups and cast blame on “both sides” for the deadly violence, prompting criticism that he was fanning racial tensions.

The Post-ABC survey finds overwhelming majorities across party lines saying it is unacceptable to hold white supremacist views, while 9 percent say such views are acceptable.

The public is less united on a central criticism of Trump’s remarks following the protests, with 42 percent saying he is putting white supremacists on equal standing with those who oppose these groups. Thirty-five percent say Trump is not equating the two, while the rest of those in the survey – 23 percent – offer no opinion.

The poll underscores the degree to which Trump’s base has largely stuck with him during the most tumultuous week of his presidency, in which few Republicans in Washington defended his response to the protests and many criticized him for not pinning blame clearly on the white supremacist and neo-Nazi groups.

Trump’s overall approval rating of 37 percent in the latest survey is little different from his 36 percent mark in July and other polling prior to the protests, although it is still lower than for his recent predecessors in the White House this early in their tenures.

To quote from Jewamongyou’s latest post on his site: (bolded by me)

We already knew that the media would paint a biased picture of what transpired. We knew that Antifa would use violence to advance their agenda. We knew that some on the right would display Nazi symbols – and that the Left would take full advantage of it.

Don’t give up. Don’t curl up in the fetal position and say, “I’ll just keep a low profile and stay out of the fray. It’s not worth speaking my mind under such circumstances.”

On the contrary, we’re in a struggle and we must keep fighting. If not for that, we’d be a bunch of useless eaters – just like so many other Americans. What’s the point of living if you’re not willing to fight for what is right?

3 Dead in Allegedly Racially Motivated Shooting at Great Lakes Dragaway

While there is no information on the identities of the three dead shot to death in Wisconsin last night, let’s speculate that they are white. The shooter is positively identified as black.

Now, assuming the victims are white, how much media coverage of black violence and racism toward whites do you think the story will get?

Crickets.

KARE11

KENOSHA COUNTY, Wis. – Three people were shot and killed at Great Lakes Dragaway in Paris, Wisconsin, Sunday evening, according to the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department.

The sheriff’s department responded to the shots fired call at the track on Highway KR at 6:59 p.m., during an event called “Larry’s Fun Fest.” Sheriff David Beth held a press conference Sunday night confirming that three male victims were fatally shot at the event.

He said the three victims were standing by a food vendor of some sort and the suspect walked up and shot them “point blank.” Beth said two of the men were pronounced dead at the scene, and a third was brought to the hospital and died while en route.

Beth said friends of the victims had “no idea” why they were shot. He said initial reports were that the victims were from Aurora, Ill.

Beth said they do not have a suspect in custody. The suspect is described as a black man with blue jean shorts, a black hoodie, in his mid-20s, with a black car. Beth said he did not know if the suspect was still on the scene or had left.

Investigators were on scene Sunday night trying to find out if there was any surveillance video and talking with witnesses, according to Beth.

Three dead compared to one dead in Charlottesville. Shouldn’t there be equal or greater coverage of shooting murders?

Watch how carefully local TV news covered the story.

And how about Black Lives Matter threatening to kill whites across the USA. More crickets.

Harvard Study Reveals Huge Extent Of Anti-Trump Media Bias

Professors reinvent the wheel could be the headline on this story.

A study shows what everybody already knows–press coverage of President Donald Trump has been overwhelmingly negative, with the exception of coverage of his cruise missile attack on Syria.

Which goes to show that if the Israeli dog wags the American tail, the press will jump for joy in showing its approval.

Excerpt from Zerohedge

A major new study out of Harvard University has revealed the true extent of the mainstream media’s bias against Donald Trump.

Academics at the Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy analyzed coverage from Trump’s first 100 days in office across 10 major TV and print outlets.

They found that the tone of some outlets was negative in as many as 98% of reports [5], significantly more hostile than the first 100 days of the three previous administrations:

The academics based their study on seven US outlets and three European ones.

In America they analyzed CNN, NBC, CBS, Fox News, the New York Times, the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal.

They also took into account the BBC, the UK’s Financial Times and the German public broadcaster ARD.

Every outlet was negative more often than positive.

Only Fox News, which features some of Trump’s most enthusiastic supporters and is often given special access to the President, even came close to positivity.

Fox was ranked 52% negative and 48% positive. – “Fair and Balanced” indeed.

The study also divided news items across topics. On immigration, healthcare, and Russia, more than 85% of reports were negative.

On the economy, the proportion was more balanced – 54% negative to 46% positive:

The study highlighted one exception: Trump got overwhelmingly positive coverage for launching a cruise missile attack on Syria.

Around 80% of all reports were positive about that.

The picture was very different for other recent administrations. The study found that President Obama’s first 100 days got a good write-up overall – with 59% of reports positive.

I remember the press coverage of Obama as nearly 100 percent positive, much higher than this study purports to find.

Mountain Resort Community of Gatlinburg, Tennessee Evacuated as Wildfire Threatens

It’s going to be a rough Christmas for some good mountain folks in Tennessee this year. I’ve pieced together sources that reveal the extent of the emergency for this post.

USA Today

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Motorists fleeing wildfires in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge packed roads in and out of the resort towns Monday night as flames and choking smoke driven by wind swept across the area.

The Gatlinburg Fire Department ordered the mandatory evacuation of downtown Gatlinburg as wind conditions worsened and several fires grew increasingly unpredictable and dangerous.

As fires threaten homes and businesses in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, the area’s largest theme park was watching the situation closely.

Pete Owens, spokesperson for Dollywood, said late Monday that no structures inside the park had been damaged. Fire crews in the park were standing by if needed to protect the buildings.

Owens said the fire has reached the Upper Middle Creek ridge near the park, and staff evacuated 19 occupied cabins in the park’s cabin resort area. In addition, they evacuated guests from 50 rooms in Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort.

Some areas of Pigeon Forge also were being evacuated, according to fire spokeswoman Trish McGee.

“Three county school buses are available for emergency transport and are being dispatched as needed to transport those who need to evacuate,” according to a statement from McGee.

“We were just told by the Gatlinburg Fire Department that they had told everybody in Gatlinburg to get out,” said Judy Tucker, director of Sevier County’s E-911 call center, around 9 p.m. “… No one’s getting through to anyone. Phones are ringing and not being answered anywhere. It’s chaos.”

Around 6 p.m., Gatlinburg fire officials declared an immediate mandatory evacuation of the Mynatt Park neighborhood, East Foothills Road, Turkey Nest Road, Davenport Road and Savage Gardens areas. At that point, average wind speeds were recorded at 40 mph, with gusts clocking in as high as 74 mph, according to a news release from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Even in time of emergency, there are nice people thinking about the pets who reside in the fire area:

More photos posted on Twitter:

Locals complained that the bigoted anti-white national media ignored their story. The town is 98.5 percent white.

If Gatlinburg were 98.5 percent nonwhite, it would be a national crisis, with wall-to-wall media coverage. Liberals would be falling all over themselves to send billions of dollars in aid to the little town. You know I speak the truth.

Brother Nathanael Jumps on Board the Trump Train

One thing we deplorables who’ve been red pilled must never forget is that Ivanka Trump converted to Judaism when she married. Donald Trump is not as far as is know at this time a critic of Jews or of Israel. So, let’s be realistic on what we on the alt-right get from Trump.

Brother Nathanael left this in the comments section:

On the “Electoral College” of December 19

Trump was ALREADY voted in by electoral votes. It’s a done deal. Clinton is history, and BAD history at that.

I, like many others, am taking a “wait and see” attitude. Actions speak louder than words.

We’ll know the first 100 days into Trump’s presidency. +bn

Another Media Smear Job: The SPLC Calls it “The Trump Effect”

THE TRUMP FREEDOM KIDS DON’T LOOK SCARED.

The sh*ts at the (((SPLC))) are at it again. The very fact of Donald Trump’s candidacy has brought horror to the innocent minds of American school children. According to them.

Commentary after the story.

Donald Trump’s insurgent campaign is causing turmoil in America.

He has peddled fear, anger, outrage and contempt from a national stage.

The Republican presidential nominee has challenged accepted standards in public life – defying convention, decorum and at times, decency.

But the fallout from all of this is being felt well beyond politics.

In Mr Trump, millions have found a voice, and his popularity is shaking and shaping what this nation believes about itself.

Across the United States – on the streets, in schools, mosques, churches and communities – ordinary life is transforming.

It is “The Trump Effect”.

Newt Gingrich Shows How to Argue with Aggressive Megyn Kelly (Video)

I’m going to look at the this clip from The Kelly File more than once. It offers an example of a man who won’t roll over and play dead for a feminist news analyst who has an unpleasant, obnoxious demeanor.

Megyn Kelly has lost a huge part of her audience because of her attacks on Donald Trump, and her meanness.

She’s even losing in the ratings war to Rachel Maddow. Maddow may be a mannish looking lesbian feminist, but her demeanor in making her case for whatever liberal cause she’s promoting is enjoyable to see. In a word, she’s not mean and aggressive like Kelly.
