In Accepting Democrat Nomination, Joe Biden Parrots the Charlottesville Lie
On Thursday night, when accepting his party’s nomination for president, Joe Biden repeated an often told Leftist lie that President Trump called the neo-Nazis that marched in Charlottesville, Virginia, “very fine people.”
Biden speech claimed that:
“Remember seeing those neo-Nazis and white supremacists, coming out of fields spewing the same antisemitic bile heard across Europe in the ’30s. Remember the violent clash that ensued between those spreading hate and those with the courage to stand against it. And remember what the president said when asked? He said there were, quote, very fine people on both sides. That was a wake up call for us as a country and for me a call to action.”
The Charlottesville bit begins 19 minutes and 36 seconds into the speech:
Except Biden is lying, because Trump actually said the exact opposite when speaking in the aftermath of the terrible event.
As Breitbart explains:
[Trump] 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
Sadly, Biden culminated his campaign to become the Democrat nominee in the same way he began it—on the foundation of an absolute lie.
