Media: Condemning White Supremacy Makes Trump A White Supremacist

After two mass shootings over the weekend, one of which appears to have included racial motivations, President Trump publicly condemned white supremacy, saying “hate has no place in our country.” Regardless, major media figures are still blaming him for the mass shootings that occurred in Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas.

In a tweet posted at 2:43 a.m. on August 5, “The View” co-host Ana Navarro dinged the president for not having at that point publicly condemned white supremacy in the early wake of an El Paso, Texas shooting.

At ten o’clock that same day, Trump publicly condemned white supremacy. However, Navarro then decided to lambaste Trump for doing what she had demanded he do.

“I don’t give a d-mn what Trumps says in a scripted speech,” Navarro tweeted. “He’s already shown us who he is. He’s demonized immigrants, stoked fear, peddled racism his whole presidency and before that. Latinos were hunted down like vermin. Trump has contribute to this climate. Vote him OUT, coño!”

When Trump says nothing, his words are insufficient and he’s a white supremacist. When Trump condemns white supremacy, his words are insufficient and he’s a still a white supremacist. Looks like he could say and do just about anything and still be called a racist by the left.

The New York Times employed a similar anti-Trump Catch-22 in a report today headlined, “Trump Condemns White Supremacy but Doesn’t Propose Gun Laws After Shootings.”

On Twitter, Ben Shapiro pointed out that The New York Times article that claims to be a news report is instead advocacy journalism that demands certain policy outcomes, all while ignoring what Trump actually said in his address.

The El Paso shooter reportedly wrote a manifesto about how he disliked races intermixing, and that he targeted the Texas border city because of the large influx of Mexican citizens there. Local and federal authorities have confirmed that there is so far no evidence of a political or racial motivation behind the Dayton shooter. In fact, he had tweeted to endorse Democrats Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders.

Regardless, the media and social media coverage has overwhelmingly targeted Trump as to blame for these shootings. Both shooting were absolutely horrific, and using them to emphasize a political message instead of reporting the facts only proves that the media has an openly partisan agenda.
