The Left’s big lie, and a complicit media

THE ANCHORAGE DAILY PLANET

If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.” – Joseph Goebbels

Joe Biden finally launched his 2020 presidential campaign the other day, basing it on a bald-face lie.

The lie, promulgated and spread by the Left and its complicit pals in the media, took flight after a white nationalist in 2017 plowed his car into a Charlottesville, Va., crowd, killing one and injuring several others. Trump’s reaction was labeled as “racist,” with him supposedly saying there were “good white nationalists and bad white nationalists” or “good neo-Nazis and bad neo-Nazis” at the rally.

That oft-repeated lie – Biden even spread it in his announcement to run – has been a cornerstone of the Left’s unending drive to smear Trump.

What Trump did say in a news conference three days after Charlottesville was that there were “very fine people” on “both sides” of the issue of whether it is appropriate to display Confederate monuments in pubic locations.

  • It seems like dims/libs have the same game plan in D.C. and Juneau. Say any and everything. Promise the world (free) and deliver nothing but hate, anger, confusion and socialism. Winston Churchill: “Socialism is the Philosophy of Failure, The Creed of Ignorance, and the Gospel of Envy.” It’s inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery”. Smart man, ole Winston.
