At last night's debate, Joe Biden repeated his favorite lie about Donald Trump. It is also a favorite lie of the Democratic Party. Here is an excerpt from my article on the the Democratic Party Convention, where he also told the lie. You see and hear this lie repeated over and over again by Biden, Kamala Harris, many Democrats, and much of the mainstream media, so you need to know the whole truth.
Biden’s speech elaborated on a frequent lie that Biden and the left-leaning mainstream media keep repeating. This lie takes the form of omitting an important part of President Trump’s words following the violent protest events in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August 2017. The conflict was between legally authorized protesters rallying to prevent the statue of Robert E. Lee from being removed from the campus of the University of Virginia and bus-loads of organized courter-protesters, including Antifa and BLM. Here is the Biden transcript:
“Just a week ago yesterday was the third anniversary of the events in Charlottesville. Remember seeing those neo-Nazis and Klansmen and white supremacists coming out of the fields with lighted torches? Veins bulging? Spewing the same anti-Semitic 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?”
“Remember what the president said?”
“There were quote, ‘very fine people on both sides.”
“It was a wake-up call for us as a country. And for me, a call to action. At that moment, I knew I'd have to run. My father taught us that silence was complicity. And I could not remain silent or complicit. At the time, I said we were in a battle for the soul of this nation. And we are.”
But here is what President Trump actually said, noting in bold print what Biden and his liberal media accomplices omitted.
"You had some very bad people in that group, but you also had people that were very fine people, on both sides. ... I saw the same pictures as you did. You had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down of, to them, a very, very important statue and the renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name. ... So you know what, it's fine. You're changing history. You're changing culture. And you had people — and I'm not talking about the neo-Nazis and the White nationalists, because they should be condemned totally — but you had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and White nationalists. Okay? And the press has treated them absolutely unfairly. Now, in the other group also, you had some fine people. But you also had troublemakers, and you see them come with the black outfits and with the helmets and with the baseball bats. You had a lot of bad people in the other group."
A bit of background on the Charlottesville involvement of Black Lives Matter and Antifa is necessary to understand Trump’s perfectly accurate statement and Biden’s allegiance to the Leftist Party Line on Charlottesville, BLM, and Antifa. The Charlottesville violence was, in fact, the Marxist inspired and endowed work of Antifa and Black Lives Matter bully-squads who made a peaceful rally or any speeches impossible and turned the day into street brawling.
The political ideology that had captured Charlottesville government sheds important light on the Charlottesville tragedy. Earlier that year, Michael Signer, the Democrat Mayor of Charlottesville, declared that he wanted Charlottesville to be a center of resistance to Trump’s plan to enforce immigration law in sanctuary cities. The Vice-Mayor was a member of BLM.

By the way, in a debate, you cannot allow your opponent to get away without calling such a lie.
If you do not interrupt, you run a strong chance that a biased or uninformed moderator, will manipulate you out of a chance to challenge the lie and respond. The above lie is Biden's favorite, but his debate performance contained many outrageous lies that a poorly informed audience might accept unless strongly challenged.
