(Tea Party PAC) – Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden delivered a message to Jews in celebration of the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah, on Thursday, posted to YouTube, in which he essentially tells some very big whoppers concerning President Trump and his reaction to the neo-Nazis in Charlottesville, Virginia, back in the hot, sticky month of August 2017.
Biden apparently told Jews that Trump called neo-Nazis “very fine people,” something that has been proven time and time again to be a complete and total hoax. This is a statement that he has used over and over again in his campaign, despite the fact it’s known to not be true. It’s been in numerous speeches and even in debates.
You’d think by now, with even some mainstream media outlets clarifying that this whole “very fine people” think isn’t true that Biden would give it up. Perhaps he would if he were thinking clearly. But again, this is a man who seems to be suffering from some serious mental issues so who knows?
Here’s more from Breitbart:
Together, we can stamp out bigotry and antisemitism. One of the things that got me involved in this race — we, I had not planned on running — was when those folks came out of the fields down in Charlottesville, chanting the same anti- — carrying torches, their veins bulging, close your eyes, remember the picture on television, chanting the same antisemitic bile that was heard in the streets of Germany in the thirties, Nazi flags, accompanied by white supremacists, and then when the president was asked, when a young woman was killed, what did he think, he said, quote there are very fine people on both sides. That’s not who we are.
As Breitbart News noted in a recent fact check:
President Trump repeatedly condemned the neo-Nazis in Charlottesville in August 2017 — “totally.”
As to “very fine people,” Trump had been referring to peaceful protests both for and against the removal of a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee.
He completely condemned the extremists — as the timeline and transcript confirm:
- Aug. 12, 2017: Trump condemned “violence “on many sides” in Charlottesville, after neo-Nazi and Antifa clashes
- Aug. 14, 2017: Trump condemned “neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups” in White House statement
- Aug. 15, 2017: Trump condemned neo-Nazis “totally,” praised non-violent protesters “on both sides” of statue debate
Biden launched his campaign with the Charlottesville hoax, and persisted in doing so, even after Breitbart News confronted him last August with the fact that he was misquoting the president.
Trump went on to clearly condemn the murder of the woman in Charlottesville, calling it an act of “terrorism.” Somehow or another, the script for Biden’s little spiel seems to have forgotten the woman’s name, Heather Heyer, as it never seems to appear in any of the scripts for his chats.
Biden has persisted in telling the same lie, despite numerous fact checks:
- April 2019: Jake Tapper of CNN noted that “Trump did condemn neo-Nazis and white supremacists. So he’s not saying that the neo-Nazis and white supremacists are very fine people.”
- August 2020: The BBC fact-checked Biden, noting that Trump had said: “I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally.”
- September 2020: ABC News fact-checked Biden, noting: “Two days after violent clashes in Charlottesville … Trump said, ‘Racism is evil and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups.’”
In his Rosh Hashanah message, Biden followed up his lie by promising to remain a “steadfast ally of Israel” if elected.
Folks, it’s time for the Biden campaign to have a serious chat with their great leader and remind him — put it on a dang cue card if necessary — that this is a lie. It’s something that has been proven to be false time and time again by many different sources. Stop repeating this slander and talk about the issues.
Seems easy enough, right?
Unless, of course, they don’t have any facts to use to back up their position on the issues.
