Although Black Lives Matter are the ones rioting and burning down buildings, leftists are harping on President Donald Trump’s comments during the debate about a so-called white supremacist group.
“You have repeatedly criticized the vice president for not specifically calling out antifa and other extremist groups,” moderator Chris Wallace said. “Are you willing to condemn white supremacists and militia groups and say they need to stand down and not to add to the violence in these cities as we saw in Kenosha and in Portland?”
In response, President Trump said he’s willing to do that but added that the violence he’s seen has been from the left, not the right. After Joe Biden demanded that the president denounce the Proud Boys, a group that directly challenges Antifa face-to-face when they gather to cause destruction in cities, President Trump said: “Proud Boys, stand back and stand by. But I’ll tell you what, somebody has to do something about antifa and the Left.”
The media and other leftists have jumped on this comment, deflecting from Joe Biden’s lack of substance during the debate.
When the right forms activist groups, they’re labeled “racist” and “white supremacist.” When the left does it, they’re always about “justice’ and “anti-bigotry.”
The present leader of the Proud Boys is Enrique Tarrio, who is half-black, half-Hispanic.

Well that complicates the Narrative. https://t.co/ZhrDRqkUCS
