WASHINGTON, DC- Has Joe Biden denounced violent Antifa or Black Lives Matter protesters? Has he ever been asked?

Fox News’ Chris Wallace made sure to ask President Trump about denouncing white supremacists and right-wing extremists at the debate Tuesday night, while giving Joe Biden a complete pass on Antifa.

It was pretty much what was to be expected from Wallace, however. The only thing he was missing was a Biden-Harris button on his suit jacket.

Despite Wallace’s grandstanding, however, there are a number of times when President Trump has denounced white nationalism and white supremacy.

The Post Millennial noted at least twenty times when the President has done so in fact.

After Trump appeared to equivocate when asked the question, rightfully asking when Biden had condemned Antifa, “Trump is a Racist” started trending on Twitter, the home of mostly dysfunctional lunatics, including some who have “blue check marks” next to their names.

In our opinion, Parler is a much better choice and if you’re a conservative, you won’t get censored. And, there are a lot less lunatics on there. But we digress.

On Wednesday, a Twitter user named James Klug posted a video in which the president has publicly denounced white supremacy and white nationalism 17 times, including a number of times on nearly every major liberal news outlet, as follows:

In addressing the fantasy that the president referred to neo-Nazis and white supremacists as “very fine people,” even CNN’s Jake Tapper said of the president:

“Elsewhere in those remarks the President did condemn neo-Nazis and white supremacists. So, he’s not saying that the neo-Nazis and white supremacists are very fine people.”

On August 15, 2017, the president said, “I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists—because they should be condemned totally.”

On February 21, 2017, President Trump said:

 “The anti-Semitic threats targeting our Jewish community and community centers are horrible and painful and a very sad reminder of the work that still must be done to root out hate and prejudice and evil.”

 

April 11, 2017, the president said:

“Recent threats targeting Jewish community centers and vandalism of Jewish cemeteries as well as last week’s shooting in Kansas City remind us that while we may be a nation divided on policies, we are a country that stands united in condemning hate and evil in all of its very ugly forms.”

August 11, 2018:

“The riots in Charlottesville a year ago resulted in senseless death and division…I condemn all types of racism and acts of violence.”

 

On February 11, 2020, FactCheck.org said that Joe Biden’s assertion that President Trump had called the Charlottesville far-right protesters “very fine people,” which he said is what convinced him to run for president (again) was factually incorrect.

President Trump said, in fact: “…you had some very bad people in that group, but you also had people that were very fine people on both sides…you had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down of, to them, a very, very important statue and the renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name.”

Following are President Trump’s remarks on the date of the incident:

“We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence, on many sides. On many sides.”

The president noted he had spoken to then-Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, and “we agreed that the hate and the division must stop, and stop right now. We have to come together as Americans with love four our nation and true affection—really—and I say this so strongly—true affection for each other.”

Two days later, Aug. 14, 2017, the president issued a statement from the White House, referring to “KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.”

The next day, August 15, 2017 the president further clarified his remarks:

“You had a group on one side that was bad. And you had a group on the other side that was also very violent. I’ve condemned neo-Nazis. I’ve condemned many different groups, but not all of those people were neo-Nazis, believe me. Not all of those people were white supremacists, by any stretch.”

 

You see, context means everything. 

Some came to President Trump’s defense, with Kimberly Klacik, a black running for the 7th Congressional seat in Maryland as a Republican, writing in a tweet:

“The President disavowing white supremacy for the fifth time is like removing confederate monuments & painting “Black Lives Matter” on the street, it doesn’t do a thing to better black lives in any stretch of the imagination.”

Reuters said that last August, President Trump had responded to mass shootings in Texas and Ohio which left 29 people dead, saying:

“These sinister ideologies must be defeated,” adding, “hate has no place in America. Hatred warps the mind, ravages the heart, and devours the soul.”

So for all the caterwauling and selective outrage from the left-wing media, Hollywood clowns, and blue checkmark bozos on Twitter, President Trump has repeatedly and unequivocally denounced white supremacy. When will Biden denounce far-left extremists? We’ll wait.
