Violence erupted in Charlottesville, Virginia, after counter-protesters attempted to quell an alt-right event protesting the city’s plan to remove a statue of US Civil War General Robert E. Lee. The event turned deadly after one of the alt-right protestors drove a vehicle through a crowd of anti-protestors, killing a 33-year-old woman.
Charlottesville Mayor Michael Signer turned to the press in the immediate aftermath of the tragic event to blame President Trump for the violence in his own backyard. He has his own dark ties that he’s kept hidden. According to The Telegraph, Signer worked closely with John Podesta on Obama’s transition team, and at the Center for American Progress funded by billionaire George Soros–who happens to also fund Leftist protests.
Signer, a former aide to John Edwards, worked closely with John Podesta on Obama’s State Department transition team, as well as for the Soros-backed Center for American Progress. He also works with “centrist” think tank, Third Way, which is funded by various Democrat organizations. He has a deep history in the Democrat corruption machine, and the ensuing opposition of everything American or conservatism stands for.
Digging deeper into the facts of the Charlottesville event reveals that someone actively allowed the violence to escalate. According to The Daily Caller, police officers from the scene say they were told to “not intervene until given the command to do so.” Normally, it’s up to an officer and his or her superiors to decide at the moment when intervention is necessary.
Multiple scuffles broke out before the death, but police officers did not step in to de-escalate tensions and break up the fights. Any police officer left to their own decision making would have certainly intervened in such heightening violence–that’s their job.
A counter-protester and minister-in-training, Brittany Caine-Conley, saw that the police held themselves back. She said, “We were watching people punch each other; people were bleeding all the while police were inside of barricades at the park, watching. It was essentially just brawling on the street and community members trying to protect each other.”
One of the few people who would be able to order the police to ignore acting on the violence would be Mayor Signer. Yet, he roundly blamed the violence on President Trump.
There were also allegations that the Mayor of Berkeley, California, made a similar order to police after the “Battle of Berkeley” in April, which took place during what was supposed to be a talk by right-wing British commentator Milo Yiannopoulos. The Berkeley Mayor has gotten off completely scot-free for this potential abuse of power and failure to protect his own citizens.
But, in the case of Charlottesville, the Mayor’s likely order left one person dead. The mayor chose money and support from George Soros over saving the life of his own citizens. The protesters, also paid by Soros, chose violence too. Now, the chaos Soros has instigated in many countries has arrived in America.
The cultural divide in the United States has grown to frightening levels with people in disagreement acting violently against each other. Do you believe leftist political actors are ginning up the divide in our nation?
While the Mayor condemns President Trump, he fails to acknowledge that our President has condemned the violence, from every side. President Trump said, “We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence on many sides – on many sides,” as reported by Fox News.
True to his position on law and order, and on supporting our police officers, President Trump added that law and order must be re-established quickly and protection must be extended to protecting the innocent. This is precisely the protection of the innocent the Charlottesville Mayor denied.
It’s clear that it is not the President who to blame here, but a weak-willed Mayor who is willing to play into Soros’ progressive agenda.
