What did Jack Brewer (and Trump) actually say?

THURSDAY, AUGUST 27, 2020

The essence of partisan warfare:
As you may have noticed, "cable news" has become almost wholly partisan.

This brings us to an amazingly tired old question—what did Donald J. Trump actually say about what happened in Charlottesville?

Before we address that question, we'll establish a more recent point. Here's what former NFL player Jack Brewer actually said last night, at the GOP convention:
BREWER (8/26/20): Are you going to allow the media to lie to you by falsely claiming that he said there are very fine white supremacists in Charlottesville? He didn't say that. It's a lie.
We're disinclined to regulate "lies." But according to Brewer, Donald J. Trump didn't say that there were "very fine white supremacists in Charlottesville."

Thanks to our own moral greatness, you can see the actual words Brewer actually said.

We didn't paraphrase what he said. We showed you what he actually said. Sadly, people on our corporate blue team hate it when people say things like that.

On MSNBC, Rachel, Joy and Nicolle immediately swung into action, seeming to contradict what the "journeyman" player had said. (We were watching live.)

MSNBC no longer transcribes its programs, and it has cut way back on video production. For those reason, we can't show you what these corporate hirelings said, though we'll characterize their comments below.

We can show you what Yamiche Alcindor instantly said.

Alcindor works for the PBS NewsHour, allegedly one of our brightest news orgs. She was at the New York Times before that.

Brewer had made a disallowed claim. Quickly, Alcindor tweeted this attempt at a rebuttal:
ALCINDOR (8/26/20): Jack Brewer, former NFL player, just said it was a lie that President Trump said "very fine people" go to Nazi rallies.

Trump after the events in Charlottesville where Nazis gathered and one killed a protester: "But you also had people that were very fine people on both sides."
That's what Alcindor said. Staff at New York magazine thought it deserved wider airing.

As you can see, Alcindor did a very poor job recording what Brewer had said.

That sort of thing is par for the course. She then provided the standard "blue tribe" clip from Trump's remarks about Charlottesville—the one statement on the subject we're allowed to hear.

(The rules: We aren't told what he seemed to be talking about when he made that statement. We aren't allowed to hear the various other things he said at that same press event.)

Alcindor provided the one line our sachems like to repeat. She didn't repeat the following comment, made in the same press event from which her clip was taken:
TRUMP (8/15/17): I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally.
Yes, that's what the commander said when he was asked to clarify his meaning that day. The commander said he wasn't talking about the neo-Nazis or the white nationalists. The commander said the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists "should be condemned totally."

That's what Brewer was talking about last night. In all likelihood, he was also referring to this statement, made at that same press event:
TRUMP: I’ve condemned neo-Nazis. I’ve condemned many different groups. But not all of those people were neo-Nazis, believe me. Not all of those people were white supremacists, by any stretch. Those people were also there because they wanted to protest the taking down of a statue, Robert E. Lee.
At that point, Trump was reminding reporters that he had already condemned neo-Nazis and white supremacists in an earlier statement about the events in Charlottesville.

At that same August 15 press event, he said this about his earlier (written) statement:
TRUMP: Saturday, we condemned in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence. It has no place in America.
The commander said that too! (In fairness, he may have been talking about the killing of Heather Heyer at that point.)

At another point, he referred to "neo-Nazis, white nationalists, whatever you want to call them," describing them as "rough, bad people." These are the things he said that day, the things you must never hear.

We aren't trying to tell you what was, or is, in Donald J. Trump's heart. Our own basic assumption is that Donald J. Trump is some version of a sociopath, though that's a point that corporate players like Alcindor have agreed they must never discuss.

We aren't telling you what was in his heart; we're simply showing you what he said at the press event from which Alcindor chose to repeat our failing, utterly hapless tribe's one favorite single sentence.

We liberals! We love that sentence with all our hearts. We love the way it makes us feel when we get to repeat it.

It helps define us as the very good people, arrayed against those who are very bad. As with tribal justice warriors dating to the dawn of time, we love the way it makes us feel when we get to define ourselves like that.

It's pathetic and sad that this manifest bullshit is still a point of dispute. The fact that it is helps us see the essence of tribalized warfare, as conducted since the dawn of time among us war-inclined "rational animals."

If we were Alcindor's employer, we'd be embarrassed today. Employers of Rachel, Joy and Nicolle have proven the fact that they're beyond any embarrassment.

(For reasons no one has explained, they stopped transcribing their programs back on July 13. In fairness, if we were producing the type of program they produce, we'd want to make it harder to critique our corporate dreckwork too.

Last night, Joy started by telling the world that Brewer had been a"journeyman" NFL player. In tribal warfare, the other guy must always be denigrated.

The ladies proceeded to recite our tribe's one favorite quote, while disappearing all the clarifications Trump offered at that same event. Might we quote the commander again?
TRUMP (8/15/17): I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally.
Yes, that's what he actually said. Compare that, if you will, to Alcindor's pseudo-report.

Our pitiful corporate tribe is badly fallen. They live to pleasure themselves, and to pleasure us.

That said, all our news orgs are corrupted now. It's pathetic that this low-IQ gong-show keeps arising, but it always will.

Final repetition:

We aren't telling you what Trump really believed that day, or what he feels today. We're just telling you what he said on the day in question.

Alcindor and The Cable News Three pretended to do that very same thing. Instead of making a real attempt, they fed you the treat they knew you would like.

This is the work of a failing nation. It's a nation in which things are visibly falling apart.

  3. Trump said: "I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally."

    If he believes this, then why didn't he condemn them? And why does he retweet them? And why does he appoint them to positions in his administration? And why do his tweets contain dog whistles and shout outs to them? And why does he surround himself with them at his rallies (back when there were rallies)? These are not the actions of someone who believes that white supremacists should be condemned. They are the actions of someone who longs to come out of the closet as a white supremacist himself, like his daddy Fred did.

  4. That paraphrase is a straw man. People in the media have been quoting Trump, not putting those words in his mouth. This is the right pretending that Trump is a victim of unfair quoting, just as Somerby is doing again, when he says they cropped off the part where Trump was just supporting bigots who celebrate the loss of the Civil War.

  5. "Our pitiful corporate tribe is badly fallen. They live to pleasure themselves, and to pleasure us."

    This is a crude statement in which Somerby implies that the media exists to masturbate, much like when he talked about Rachel stuffing cash in her pants. This isn't cute or funny, just ugly language from an ugly man.

    Somerby, this isn't how you find your better self.

    2. I don't like being told that I am masturbating when I watch the cable news I like. It implies that the only reason I like it is because I feel good watching what I agree with. That is Somerby's whole premise and he sells everyone here short and is wrong about why people watch what they choose. His assertion is insulting. And there is nothing subtle about it.

  7. “Those people were also there because they wanted to protest the taking down of a statue, Robert E. Lee.”

    Well, Trump was correct here at least. From Wikipedia:

    “The Unite the Right rally was a white supremacist and neo-Nazi rally that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia, from August 11 to 12, 2017. Protesters were members of the far-right and included self-identified members of the alt-right, neo-Confederates, neo-fascists, white nationalists, neo-Nazis, Klansmen, and various right-wing militias. The marchers chanted racist and antisemitic slogans and carried weapons, Nazi and neo-Nazi symbols, the Valknut, Confederate battle flags, Deus Vult crosses, flags, and other symbols of various past and present anti-Muslim and antisemitic groups. The organizers' stated goals included unifying the American white nationalist movement and opposing the proposed removal of the statue of General Robert E. Lee from Charlottesville's former Lee Park.”

    But here’s the thing: the rally was specifically a rally of neo-Nazis, etc. It existed for no other purpose. And yes, they also “wanted to protest the taking down of a statue, Robert E. Lee.”

    So when trump says there were fine people on the “Unite the Right” side, he is saying there were fine people in this collection of exclusively alt-right Nazi, white supremacist folks.

    And that is the inconvenient fact that Trump and Brewer and Somerby don’t want you to know.

    Trump and maybe Brewer I understand.

    But Somerby?

    1. So there was no possibly that locals with a lineage of Confederate antecedents, or merely of picnics in the park, might have wanted to keep that space as it has been since their birth? People who weren’t members of the tiki torch crowd?

      Actually, there were locals who are active in community groups that were debating such changes. As big media gets wind and becomes involved they are drowned out by incoming political activists, extremist groups, and media hyperbole.

      It wouldn’t kill you to make such distinctions even when it isn’t politically expedient. You can tell these locals that you think that it’s time to move on from their lore into a broader horizon.

      You may be surprised how eager they are to relinquish the past with the right approach.

      It won’t gain political talking points or media ratings, but that’s Bob’s point.

    2. Cecelia, no, no possibility at all. This was a unite the right, white supremacist rally, not a save the statue rally, not that someone couldn't be a member of both categories.

      That's adorable! Or it would be if you weren't a living, commenting example of it's exact opposite.

      You think that 150 years after a bunch of traitors and slavers decided to form a more perfecter union in the name of white supremacy, their ancestors just want to picnic in the park only-incidentally in the shadow of monuments to treason and slavery? That all anyone has to do is tell this crowd that it's time to move on from their "lore" that they and their family going back generations may be losers but at least they're white losers?

      Yeah, I'd be surprised if they "relinquished the past" in the face of sweet reason because opposition to the beliefs they cling to produces nothing but a harder clutching of those beliefs. A trail of lynching, bombing, discrimination, and voter suppression from then to now is littered with the evidence.

      You know that it's still called the Edmund Pettus Bridge, proudly named for the man who spent a decade in the US Senate representing Alabama, right?. A brief search in the google reveals that Pettus spent four years fighting for the Lost Cause and rising to the rank of general, despite having a talent for being captured. After the Civil War, he became an ardent supporter of racial equality and civil rights.

      I'm just fuckin' with ya. After the Civil War, Pettus served as the Grand Dragon of the Alabama KKK. I'm sure he was in White Supremacist Heaven smiling down at his eponymous bridge during the Civil War era re-enactment on March 7, 1965. It'll take the concurrence of the Alabama legislature to change the name of the bridge.

      The 2020 session of the legislature adjourned sine die last May 18, but they're scheduled to return in February or March of next year. Assuming they're all not dead of COVID-19, how about you and I head on down to Montgomery (capital of 'Bama now, and of the Confederacy then) and lobby them to change the name? I'm sure they'll be eager to relinquish the past with the right approach.

      The Facts

      The Charlottesville City Council in February 2017 had voted to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee that had stood in the city since 1924, but opponents quickly sued in court to block the decision. In June 2017, the City Council voted to give Lee Park, where the statue stood, a new name — Emancipation Park. (In 2018, the park was renamed yet again to Market Street Park.)

      The city’s actions inspired a group of neo-Nazis, white supremacists and related groups to schedule the “Unite the Right” rally for the weekend of Aug. 12, 2017, in Charlottesville. There is little dispute over the makeup of the groups associated with the rally. A well-known white nationalist, Richard Spencer, was involved; former Ku Klux Klan head David Duke was a scheduled speaker. “Charlottesville prepares for a white nationalist rally on Saturday,” a Washington Post headline read.



      Suddenly, a militia group associated with the Patriot movement announced it was also going to hold an event called 1Team1Fight Unity in Charlottesville on Saturday, Aug. 12, rescheduling an event that has been planned for Greenville, S.C., 370 miles away. Other militia groups also made plans to attend.

      On the night of Aug. 11, the neo-Nazi and white-supremacist groups marched on the campus of the University of Virginia, carrying flaming torches and chanting anti-Semitic slogans.

  10. Alcindor criticized Madison Cawthorn, a paralyzed young man, because he struggled to stand for the flag. I personally found his act kind of schmaltzy. It was a takeoff on something FDR did, and not a particularly good one IMHO.

    Alcindor had a different criticism. She saw Cawthorn's act as a criticism of blackw who kneel for the flag. She tweeted, ‘It was a direct rebuke of actions by ppl - including black athletes who are currently sitting out games - protesting police brutality.’

  11. "Not all of those people were white supremacists, by any stretch. Those people were also there because they wanted to protest the taking down of a statue, Robert E. Lee."

    So "those people" were divided between white supremacists and neo-Nazis and people who really like statues of Robert E Lee, which includes Trump by his own admission.

    If you know the facts, there is no distinction between those two groups regarding white-supremacy.

    By Lee's own words, Robert E. Lee was a self-confessed white-supremacist. He was also a slaver and traitor to his country. Trump is a admitted admirer of Robert E. Lee, a white-supremacist, and wants him to be honored.

  12. Brewer states that the “liberal media” falsely claimed that Trump stated that there are very fine white supremacists. A lazy reader would assume that this piece of propaganda is an accurate quote lifted from the monolithic liberal media. Of course it is not. And of course instead of exposing this garbage talk for what it is, Somerby accepts it to make his tired point. And given that Brewer’s statement is false, Somerby’s criticism is baseless, without any foundation.

    "In case you weren’t already aware of the Trump strategy for November:

    “The more chaos and anarchy and vandalism and violence reigns, the better it is for the very clear choice on who’s best on public safety and law and order.” — Kellyanne Conway

    The fact that the man who is already in the White House is fomenting violence as she speaks is supposed to go unnoticed by the American people, I guess.

    Basically, Trump is ginning up violence in order to scare people into voting for him to … stop the violence? Ok."

    2. A Right-winger asking what's so bad about white supremacy is too on brand.

  14. Polls released today show a 14-15% lead for Biden over Trump. Questions were asked as recently as yesterday. These two polls show a convention bounce for Biden (up from 9% lead) but no bounce so far for Trump. They also show no effect of recent rioting, at least nationwide.

    There is no basis for the hair-pulling of concern trolls.

  17. I have been suffering from a deadly disease (Hsv) for the past 3 years now, I had spent a lot of money going from one places to another, from churches to churches, hospitals have been my home every day residence. Constant checks up have been my hobby not until this faithful day, I was searching through the internet, I saw a testimony on how Dr Onokun helped someone in curing his (Hsv) herpes disease, quickly I copied his email which is Dronokunherbalcure@gmail.com just to give him a test I spoke to him, he asked me to do some certain things which I did, he told me that he is going to provide the herbal cure to me, which he did, then he asked me to go for medical checkup after some days after using the herbal cure, behold I was free from the deadly disease, he only asked me to post the testimony through the whole world, faithfully am doing it now, please brothers and sisters, he is great, I owe him in return. if you are having a similar problem just email him on : Dronokunherbalcure@gmail.com

  19. I just got my ex husband back through the help of Dr OSOFO love spells Experts!..My husband left me for another woman, This was just 2 years of our marriage. The most painful thing is that I was pregnant with our second baby. I wanted him back. I did everything within my reach to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so badly because of the love I had for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back , I had no choice than to try it. I messaged the spell caster call Dr OSOFO and he assured me there was no problem and that everything will be okay before 11 hours. He cast the spell and surprisingly 9 hours later my husband called me. I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that had happened He wanted me to return to him. He also said he loved me so much. I was so happy andent to him that was how we started living together happily again.thanks to man, do not cry anymore, contact Dr.OSOFO for help now..Here his contact, WhatsApp him: +2349065749952 {or} Email him at: ( osofo.48hoursolutioncenter@gmail.com )
