David Horowitz: Charlottesville Is Biggest ‘Fake News’ Story of Summer

PictureNewsmax: The tragedy in Charlottesville could have been an occasion to stop and consider how the tolerance for politically correct violence and politically correct hatred is leading the nation towards civil war. Instead, the media and the political left have turned this incident into the biggest fake news story of the summer, transforming its real lessons into a morality play that justifies war against the political right, and against white people generally.

The organizers of the “Unite the Right” demonstration in Charlottesville were repellent racists. But they came to defend a historic monument honoring a complex man and cause, and not to attack it or presumably anyone else. They applied for a permit and were denied.They re-applied successfully in a petition supported by the local ACLU. If they had come to precipitate violence, why would they have gone to the tedious trouble of applying for a permit? Who knows what – if anything – would have happened if that had been the end of the story and no one had shown up to oppose them.

What “Unite the Right” actually demonstrated was that the assortment of neo-Nazis, pro-Confederates, and assorted yahoos gathered under the banner of the “Alt-Right” is actually a negligible group.

Yet “white supremacy” and its evils became the centerpiece of all the fake news reporting on the event, including all the ludicrous attacks on the president for not condemning enough a bogeyman the whole nation condemns, and that no one but a risible fringe supports.  more …

Opinion: I don’t know about you but I needed to get some definitions:

Antifa (Antifascist) is a far-left, anarchist political movement of autonomous, self-described anti-fascist groups in the United States.The term is loosely used with anti-racism, anti-sexism, anti-homophobia, as well as anarchism and anti-capitalism.

Unite the Right is a gathering of far-right groups.  Those assembled at the Charlottesville rally included members of white supremacist, white nationalist, neo-Confederate, neo-Nazi, and militia movements.

Black Lives Matter was born out of the not-guilty verdict in the killing of Trayvon Martin, and translated to the streets after the killing of Michael Brown, #BlackLivesMatter is an organization, a movement, and a rallying cry for racial justice.

Black Lives Matter was given legitimacy with an invitation to the White House:

In short, there were two demonstrations in Charlottesville – a legal protest by “Unite the Right” and an illegal protest by the vigilantes of Antifa and Black Lives Matter.

While the Unite the Right anarchists are a negligible group in terms of numbers, Antifa and BLM can attract tens of thousands quickly. Mr. Trump, in his sometimes hard to listen to way, actually got this right; all three are at fault, and all three groups acted out tribal warfare through social upheaval, all in the name of racial justice.

In checking God’s word on the subject of racism, I went to “AnswersinGenesis.org” here:

“The Bible does not even use the word race in reference to people, but it does describe all human beings as being of “one blood” (Acts 17:26). This of course emphasizes that we are all related, as all humans are descendants of the first man, Adam (1 Corinthians 15:45), who was created in the image of God (Genesis 1:26-27). The last Adam, Jesus Christ, also became a descendant of Adam. Any descendant of Adam can be saved, because our mutual relative by blood (Jesus), died and rose again. This is why the gospel can (and should) be preached to all tribes and nations.”

And this is why we need a Savior:

“Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, And in sin my mother conceived me.” Ps. 51:5

“The wicked are estranged from the womb; These who speak lies go astray from birth. Ps. 58:3

“Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned” Romans 5:12

 Racism is not only a Biblically incorrect term, it is a sin against God’s creation. We are one race, the human race: “Now the whole earth had one language and one speech.” Gen. 11:1

  1. Philippians 3:20 ESV
    “But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ,”

    I grew up in a time when family values were highlighted by Bill Cosby on Thursday nights, reruns of Baretta showed me a character played by Robert Blake as someone with a measured disposition, and Liberace was nothing more than a piano player who liked sequins. America is so different now.

    1 Thessalonians 5 ESV
    5 Now concerning the times and the seasons, brothers, you have no need to have anything written to you. 2 For you yourselves are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. 3 While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. 4 But you are not in darkness, brothers, for that day to surprise you like a thief. 5 For you are all children of light, children of the day. We are not of the night or of the darkness. 6 So then let us not sleep, as others do, but let us keep awake and be sober. 7 For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, are drunk at night. 8 But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, having put on the breastplate of faith and love, and for a helmet the hope of salvation. 9 For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, 10 who died for us so that whether we are awake or asleep we might live with him. 11 Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.

    Sorry to go long but I felt it necessary to post all of that from 1 Thessalonians 5 ESV. With all the darkness around us, let us reflect the light of Jesus Matthew 5:16 ESV and conduct ourselves accordingly Philippians 1:27 ESV.

    I didn’t think it was possible but we may have collectively reached a higher level of anger than what American experienced during the LA riots of the early 90’s. So now this presents an opportunity for us to model what it means to be a Christian.

  2. While I disagree with certain things having to do with the white supremacists, I do agree with nationalism. I have been in friendly debates with other Christians with regards to immigration. It started back in Genesis, with the Tower of Babel and Nimrod. God split the people up, sending them off to different lands and confusing their languages. He did that for several good reasons. And not once did God put a time limit on when it would be undone. Not once did God say that after seventy and seven years or generations would this end and the people would be re-united.

    Many bad things have happened due to immigration. And that is what happens when people proudly disobey God. Bad things begin to happen. Multiple foreign deadly diseases, extremely high crime rates, religious hatred within our own country between foreign religions. And the list goes on.

    People have also debated that white people are the immigrants in North America. Not true. North America was founded by northern European (Scandinavian, aka Vikings) settlers. They were here almost 500 years before the Indians came. As time goes by, we have discovered that Vikings have had a very rich history in North America. Therefore, it is not actual immigration when modern Europeans come to a land that was founded by European ancestors. It is like when Danish people choose to move to Greenland. It is just an extension of their people’s land.

    God never wanted immigration. Speaking from a sound Biblical and Christian point of view, it makes no sense. Nothing good comes from it. However, a lot of very bad things have happened because of it.
