Fox & Friends host Pete Hegseth defended President Trump when he got attacked for condemning violence by ALL SIDES following the Charlottesville, Virginia, incident.
“I think the president nailed it,” Hegseth said (video below). “He condemned in the strongest possible terms hatred and bigotry on all sides, as opposed to immediately picking a side out the gate.”
Amazingly, liberal media then trashed Hegseth — a Bronze star Army vet who risked his life for his country from 2003 to 2014 — as a white supremacist for defending the president of the United States.
It’s safe to assume that few of Hegseth’s critics have done even a fraction of what he has to protect the rights of crybaby liberals to virtue-signal and whine from behind the safety of their keyboards.
Here’s how the lunacy unfolded: Liberal media and their moonbat sheeple slammed Trump for not immediately condemning white supremacists by name when he called for an end to ALL violence, by both the right and the left.
Keep in mind that former president Obama still refuses to utter the phrase “radical Islamic terrorism” and the media say nothing.
President Trump has repeatedly disavowed and condemned the alt-right, neo-Nazis, and white supremacists. He has also repeatedly condemned the KKK — the racist hate group started by the Democratic Party.
At the time the president made his initial statement, the facts were still not in about who had started the fighting at Charlottesville. Numerous reports suggest the rally — which was held Friday night — was peaceful until the alt-left antifa came on Saturday morning and started throwing fists.
Hegseth said President Trump did the right thing by condemning ALL violence and urging EVERYONE, no matter what your color, to stop the violence and hatred.
Because of inane leftist outrage, the White House issued another statement pointing out the obvious (since liberals have mental disorders and are slow): “Of course that includes white supremacists, KKK, neo-Nazis and all extremist groups.”
As BizPac Review previously reported, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee also agreed the president did the right thing by not jumping to conclusions before releasing a statement, the way Obama did with the Ferguson shooting.
Hegseth said he was heartened that Trump condemned violence by the left with his blanket anti-violence statement because the antifa has beaten up Trump supporters, censored free speech, and caused hundreds of millions of dollars in property damage.
The Democrats and liberals STILL have not condemned or disavowed the violence of the alt-left antifa after eight months of rioting and looting.
“Antifa also ought be called out, just like the violent aspects of Black Lives Matter ought be called out,” Pete Hegseth said. “We should never live in such a politically correct culture that we can’t at least have a conversation. There’s a reason those people were out there. Some of it is outright racism and needs to be condemned. A lot of it, though, is ‘I feel like my country is slipping away.”
Dr. Carol Swain, an attorney and professor at Vanderbilt University, said liberals need to stop labeling ALL white people as racists and white supremacists because that’s obviously untrue and sounds crazy. By doing so, the left loses whatever shred of credibility it has left.

Here’s some reaction on social media laughing at leftist stupidity in conflating the fringe white-supremacist movement with all white people and with Trump supporters. Liberalism really is a mental disorder.

Can someone please compile the full list of groups in need of disavowal so President Trump can do them all at once, in badness order?

"Why isn't anyone on the right denouncing white supremacists?"
Said by the same people who openly support Antifa and anarchist violence.

Remember who the real Nazi is: Democratic mega-donor George Soros, who’s bankrolling the violent antifa riots around the world. In his youth, Soros actually worked for the Nazi party. Let that sink in.
