Charlottesville: Battle Between Left and Left, Not Left and Right

It is left v. left. In addition to this article, let me recommend my review of Jonah Goldberg’s book Liberal Fascism which starts here.

Here is Bryan Fischer writing at BarbWire:

The one thing that almost everybody is getting wrong about the riot in Charlottesville is that the confrontation was not a matter of left versus right, but left versus left. Both sides in this tragic showdown grew in the soil of regressive American liberalism.

As Dinesh D’Souza has pointed out, white nationalism is a leftwing creation. The KKK is the creation of the Democrat Party, which was also the party of Jim Crow legislation. It was the party that used sheriffs, police dogs, and firehoses to block school house doors to black children and to prevent marchers from crossing the bridge in Selma.

The media is relentlessly pounding the phrase “white nationalism” because it has the word “nationalism” in it. Donald Trump does not stand for white nationalism, but for American nationalism, but the media is conditioning the American people to think “racism” every time they hear the word “nationalism,” which is why 76% of Democrats, according to a Suffolk poll, believe, with absolutely zero evidence, that the president is a racist.

It was the Democrat Party whose white senators filibustered the 1964 Civil Rights Act and fought against the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Both of those bills only became law because they had more Republican than Democrat support.

Democrat Senator Robert Byrd (when will they get around to destroying his statues, or insisting that every road and building in West Virginia named after him be rechristened?) has the distinction of being the only senator to vote against the two black nominees to the Supreme Court, Thurgood Marshall and Clarence Thomas. He personally led the 52-day filibuster against the Civil Rights Act, and once created a chapter of the KKK along with 150 of his buddies.
