Pence Refutes Fine People Hoax – as Biden Keeps Repeating the Lie
Finally, the American people got to hear a refutation to the Fine People Hoax. That’s where President Trump supposedly said, after the 2017 Charlottesville Unite the Right Rally, there were “fine people” on both sides – meaning the white supremacists, KKKers and neo-Nazis supposedly were “fine people.”
In fact, the “fine people” he talked about were in a far distant location in the park, and were there to take different sides, civilly, of the Confederate statues controversy. And Trump immediately, and without prompting, renounced the white supremacists and the other Unite the Right marchers.
Joe Biden has based his whole campaign on the Fine People Hoax. He said from the beginning that Trump’s words were what sparked the Biden juggernaut. And he has said it every time he can. At the first debate, “moderator” Chris Wallace brought it up for Biden, showing Wallace’s left-bias and absorption into the Democratic Party.
Unfortunately, when Trump was asked if he renounced the white supremacists, he said, “Sure.” That was pretty weak. Maybe he already was suffering from the COVID. Or maybe, having already renounced them more than 20 times, he thought that was enough. Of course, the Left then kept insisting, “HE DIDN’T RENOUNCE THE WHITE SUPREMACISTS!!!!!!”
Enter Pence. When the subject came up from Kamala Harris – is that all the Left thinks we should talk about? – he gave a great debunking:
“You know, I think this is one of the things that makes people dislike the media so much in this country, Susan, is that you selectively edit – just like Senator Harris did – the comments that President Trump and I and others on our side of the aisle make. I mean – Senator Harris conveniently omitted, after the president made comments about people on either side of the debate over monuments, he condemned the KKK, neo-Nazis and white supremacists, and has done so repeatedly. You’re concerned that he ‘doesn’t condemn neo-Nazis’? President Trump has Jewish grandchildren. His daughter and son-in-law are Jewish. This is a president who respects and cherishes all of the American people.”
The Left-media, of course, did not reform themselves and stop repeating the Fine People Hoax. But over on the other side of the Atlantic, a BBC “fact check” surprisingly did so (boldface in original):
“Harris: ‘Trump said 'there were fine people on both sides' in far-right protests.’
“Verdict: The quote is correct, but President Trump said in the same press conference that he wasn't referring to neo-Nazis or white nationalists.
“Kamala Harris brought up President Trump's controversial comments following far-right protests in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017. Violent clashes left one of the counter-protesters dead.
“According to a transcript of a press conference on 15 August, President Trump did say – when asked about the presence of neo-Nazis at the rally – ‘you had some very bad people in that group, but you also had people that were very fine people, on both sides.’
“However, at the same press conference, Mr Trump went on to say, ‘I'm not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally.’”
Of course, none of that has stopped Biden from lying and lying and lying. He lies so much he makes Bill Clinton look like George Washington.
After the debate, Biden tweeted: “Time and time again, President Trump has refused to condemn white supremacy and stoked the flames of hate for political gain. It’s a pattern – and America deserves better.” The tweet included a video from the debate of the words, above, from Kamala – but entirely omitted Pence’s refutation!
By making the Fine People Hoax the center of his campaign, Biden has turned Americans against one another on race, at a time when what’s needed is reconciliation. He has fomented the hate that has ripped up and burned down our cities.
If he is elected, he will impose policies that will split this country apart.
If Joe Biden is elected, America might not survive.
