    t must be payback time for Trump's criticizing Hilary and the left for not saying Radical Islamists Terrorists. Trump's condemning hate groups in the Charlottesvile mess apparently is not enough. He must use their words and be more specific. Trump will never be able to do or say any thing that will meet their approval since the vendetta will continue.

    No, I don't think President Trump is being treated fairly by the press. I don't think he is being treated fairly by alot of people including even some who are working for him. I don't think it matters what he does, those same people and the Press are going to find something wrong with it as they did not want him elected President and they will continue to do all they can to let him and us know this.

    No, I don't think he's being treated fairly but he certainly doesn't help his cause with all his childish tweets.

    I'd rather see him continue to be his "real" self, childish outbursts and all...then see him become a "puppet" like the others.

    Why can't he do both? Being a puppet has nothing to do with wether someone tweets or not.

    No. Because he doesn't suck up to them. Since the advent of TV, the media have had politicians under their control. If they want to be elected, they have to kiss the medias ass. They can make you or break you. Trump doesn't do that. So they are determined to bring him down to size.

    I believe that if Nixon had sucked up to the media, Watergate would have been quietly swept under the rug. Nobody would have ever heard the word. Instead, he riled them. And they got even with him.

    He could do both if he wanted and I do find he has toned down a lot since he was running for President. I don't mind his "spice"...and I would rather know what someone is really thinking than not.

    I just think it distracts from his job as President and gives the media and his distracters ammunition.

    There were four radical racist groups in Charlottesville: the KKK, the Neo-Nazis, BLM, and Antifa. When they criticize Trump for not specifically pointing to only two of them, they are simply insisting that he take sides. I have no doubt that most of the people there weren't part of any of these groups, but were people who were lawfully protesting the elimination of history. I haven't seen any evidence indicating that the guy with the car was a member of any of them, and it seems as if he were simply a nut.

    Is this a joke ! ?
    Where has the media given 'anyone' a fair deal
    I have no interest in the media's 'views'
    As for Trump himself, listen to what he has to say, you either like or not
    He should have immediately condemned the riots, then nothing 'could' have been said about the fact that he didn't :rolleyes:

    The statement that they have been making a fuss over was made before anyone knew anything about the man who ran into the people. Unlike Obama, who was known to jump in with an opinion even before the facts were known, Trump didn't make assumptions, is all.

    Thanks - maybe I misunderstood
    I thought they meant the 'violence' that took place, not just the car incident

    On the news they showed the man who used the car as a weapon in the hate group with a shield that all of them had. I don't think BLM is a racist group. There are also white members of BLM.

    The fallacy began with your first three words: "On the news..."

    The "racist group" you are referring to was created in November of 2016, after Trump's election, by a man named Jason Kessler. As far back as 2011, Kessler was a far-left activist with the Occupy Movement. He was an Obama supporter and a Bernie Sanders supporter. This is a fact that even the Southern Poverty Law Center (a left-wing activist group) acknowledges, yet on which the mainstream media has been silent.

    In October of 2016, he's a left-wing Bernie Sanders supporter. In November, he's a white supremacist starting a white supremacist hate group, no doubt financed by the same people who have financed Occupy, BLM, and Antifa. Suddenly, after Trump's election, this left-wing activist Obama/Bernie supporter formed what "the news" would have us believe is a racist group. This faux white supremacist group handed out teeshirts and shields to whoever would take one, including the schizophrenic who later drove the car into some other cars, which hit woman who was killed. The whole thing was staged, but of course you won't hear this "on the news."

    I'm sure that you heard "on the news" that a former teacher of the racist driver of the car mentioned that he had had a fascination with Adolph Hitler when he was in school. She also told "the news" that he was being treated for schizophrenia, but that little tidbit didn't fit the narrative that "the news" wanted to tell, so you haven't heard that part "on the news."

    Why? Because it plays so much better to report that a white supremacist ran people down at a hate rally than to report that a mentally ill person ran his car into some other cars, which then hit the crowd, killing a woman. "The news" is agenda driven, not fact driven.

    At the moment, I can't think of anything that I could say that wouldn't be insulting, so I'll leave it for now.

    There were, by the way, Jewish members of the Nazi Party.

    There is a reason why the mainstream media is referred to as fake news. If you believe what you hear or see on the news, then there really isn't anything that anyone can say that would make any sense to you.

    This is being discussed elsewhere, but to tie it in with the subject of this thread, no Trump is certainly not being treated fairly by the media, as the media is conspiring with the Soros-funded left in order to manufacture stories rather than reporting them.

    I'm sorry but I do believe some news channels. There is freedom of speech and I believe what a lot of credible reporters say. Thanks for not going there into insults as you say. lol. I don't know why you'd want to insult me (if that is what you are saying). I am just being a part of this discussion with a differing opinion and a right to have one.

    I don't want to insult anyone, but it's hard to understand how anyone could, first of all, not believe that Black Lives Matter is racist or, secondly, that they couldn't be racist because they have white members.

    In one sense, I agree with part of it. The people who are calling the shots for BLM aren't racist. They are the same people who were responsible for Occupy and who are behind Antifa. The agenda is to prevent Trump from accomplishing anything during his presidency. However, the black people who they recruit for the BLM stuff are every bit as racist as the Klan.

    The people on the streets, whether we're talking about Occupy, BLM, Antifa, or whatever the next reincarnation might be, are mostly useful idiots, with a few paid agitators to control the action.

    When I see spokespeople for BLM or blacks rights in general, they are articulate and asking for peace
    Certainly non violent
    You will always get bad apples in the bunch but from what I've seen the blacks generally give a good and reasonable message
    maybe, when provoked - they're provoked

    These different groups are like cults fed and miss information by antagonists to believe so thing that are not necessarily true for example BLM the blacks in Africa enslaved the blacks sold them and the US white people finally free them. The same as the guys with the swastika on there shields don't know anything for what it stood for. The people behind those groups are only using them for an agenda and could care less on their ideology. These same people have control of media to get their agenda pushed. Anyone still believing the media need only remember which media told you the truth like Hillary is 85% of winning and we have pols to prove it.

    I agree with you. Yes, one bad apple doesn't spoil the whole bunch or do they? Yes, people get provoked as humans that are in some ways animalistic. It happens.

    BLM, in my opinion, is trying to show everyone that they matter too when so many police have been killing them. I think it's a just cause. We all have opinions and I agree to disagree with you sir. :)
