Last night at Trump’s townhall event in Miami, he was, as expected, treated to a full-on debate with the “moderator,” NBC’s Savannah Guthrie, a very angry, very liberal woman who, in typical angry-liberal-woman-on-a-powertrip fashion, seized her opportunity to scold and hector Trump for an hour-plus.
First, she hectored him about his supposed “refusal” to condemn White Supremacists, and then, when he set her straight on that, she seamlessly pivoted to QAnon, another group that Trump Must Condemn Or Else He’s Literally Hitler:
Savannah Guthrie was not pleasant, to say the least. She’s one of those angry, liberal white women who thinks she knows everything and literally can’t EVEN 24/7. The worst part of the exchange was when she said:
“QAnon is this theory that Democrats are satanic pedophile ring and that you are the savior of that. Now can you just, once and for all, state that that is completely not true, and disavow Qanon in its entirety?”
(Anytime a woman beings a sentence with, “Can you just…?” you know you’re in for an earful. “Can you just…?” it sounds like a question, but in reality it’s a demand.)
Then Trump goes, “I know nothing about QAnon.”
And the way she snapped at him: “I just told you.” She was straight scolding him like she probably lectures every beta male she’s ever dated. “Hey, honey, what time are we supposed to be at your parents’ place again?” “I JUST TOLD YOU!!!!!!”
And she said it like her word is more credible than the Holy Gospel. “I JUST TOLD YOU WHAT QANON WAS, YOU STUPID WHITE MALE!” No one can dispute her characterization of QAnon, because she is an empowered female journalist, and therefore the most reliable and objective source of information on the planet.
I loved Trump’s answer: “What you tell me doesn’t necessarily make it fact, I hate to tell you.”
He has clearly dealt with bossy, know-it-all women like Savannah Guthrie before. And I’m sure that made her blood boil. It probably took every ounce of restraint she had to not start barking at him, “TOXIC MASCULINITY! Don’t Mansplain to me! Men have HAD their time! THE FUTURE IS FEMALE!!!”
But the funniest part was that she accepted Trump’s claim that he didn’t know about QAnon, and yet still demanded he denounce it anyway based solely on her explaining it to him literally 10 seconds ago. “I DEMAND you denounce something you only just found out about 10 seconds ago!!!!”
Anyone else think it’s a little funny that the media takes “Antifa” at their word that they are merely against fascism, but doesn’t take QAnon at their word that they’re against Satanic pedophiles? We’re supposed to think Antifa is awesome despite all the evidence to the contrary because they say they’re Against Fascism. In fact, some in the media go to extraordinary lengths to defend Antifa, like CNN’s Chris Cuomo who tweeted this out in 2017:
No matter how much violence and crime Antifa commits, the media will always play dumb. “Hey, they’re just people who don’t like fascism. There’s nothing wrong with Antifa. But QAnon on the other hand, are a violent, dangerous terrorist organization worse than Al Qaeda and we must spend every waking minute talking about them.”
But you know the drill here: as always, everything the media says is a lie, and not only that but the complete opposite is true. No different here with Antifa/QAnon.
I tried to look into the whole Q stuff and a lot of it was just way too outlandish to really wrap my arms around. For instance, the belief that JFK Jr. is still alive more 20 years after the plane crash, that there’s going to be a nationwide blackout in which every corrupt politician, celebrity and official is rounded up and arrested.
And as much as I like Trump, I think it’s weird that some of the more hardcore Q people treat him like he’s Jesus or something. He is, at the end of the day, a mortal man, and thereby imperfect and liable to disappoint you. Your salvation will not come from Trump. But I’m sure most QAnon adherents are not that hardcore into it. From what I’ve seen on social media, most of them are just patriots who love their country and hate to see bad people in power getting away with the things they get away with.
But most importantly: QAnon people are not rioting and burning down major cities. They are not violently assaulting people. They are not smashing up stores and government buildings. They are not “occupying” whole city neighborhoods and turning them into lawless thunderdomes.
QAnon has not caused even a fraction of a percent of the mayhem and chaos that Antifa/BLM have.
But the media knows the chaos caused by Antifa/BLM has really hurt Biden’s chances in the election, so they’re desperately trying to make it seem like there are groups just like Antifa/BLM on the right and they’re causing just as much–if not more–violence and chaos. At first it was the Proud Boys, now it’s QAnon that the media is trying to convince the “low information voters” are equally as responsible for all the mayhem we saw this summer. They’re trying to create a false equivalence so they can say, “Hey, both sides were equally responsible for the violence and chaos.” Because this muddies the waters and neutralizes a very strong Republican selling point this year, which is simply that it’s the Democrats who are behind all the looting and rioting and anarchy.
And it’s a strong Republican talking point because it’s the truth. But the media is trying to cancel it out by building up this narrative that, “Well, yeah, Antifa and BLM are bad, but the Proud Boys and QAnon are equally as bad.”
But they’re not. They’re nowhere close to as bad. In fact, again, most QAnon supporters are flag-waving patriots who do little more than share spicy memes on social media.
Trump was 100% correct to turn the tables on Guthrie by asking when the media will hold Biden’s feet to the fire and demand he given an unequivocal condemnation of Antifa. Democrats should not be allowed to continue existing in their fantasy world. At some point they’re going to have to face the real world, where Antifa is the real problem.
Finally, my favorite meme from last night:
