The left has been constantly attacking President Trump for what they're claiming is a "refusal" to denounce white supremacy.
The President did denounce it during the debate and he's done so numerous times in the past. How many times must he say it before it sticks?
Liberals are jumping on the narrative that Proud Boys is a white supremacist organization. Well, this prompted them to speak out about it themselves, and liberals are having a fit.
Thad, who is the leader of the Salt Lake City chapter of the organization went on TV to publicly denounce white supremacists. He's a black man by the way. This should be the first clue that they're not white supremacists.
"The Proud Boys as a whole, I will say this on behalf of the entire national organization, denounce white supremacy. We are in way, shape or form white supremacists. We have a vetting system that just gets those guys out of our hair."
“I will go out and say that the #ProudBoys as a whole, I will say this on behalf of the entire national organization, denounce white supremacy." - Thad, Chief of the Proud Boys Salt Lake Utah Chapter pic.twitter.com/WGlUEx3jeF

Just calling someone racist doesn't make them racist. It ABSOLUTELY BLOWS my mind that there are people that dumb out there who just can not be rational and reasoned with.
I was having a discussion earlier this week about the statement President Trump made and the Proud Boys organization with a liberal friend of mine.
He had initially said,
When asked if he would condemn white supremacist groups such as the Proud Boys, the president's message to them was, "Stand back and stand by."
This is not a condemnation. This is an order.
So he was calling Proud Boys a white supremacist organization, so I challenged him on it and gave him multiple opportunities to show some hard evidence that they are a white supremacist organization. I told him, in all seriousness, I'm prepared to be corrected and concede they're a white supremacist organization if you can provide me with some solid evidence showing that they are.
So he linked me to an article from the Washington Post in which they call them a white supremacist organization...
This is not evidence. Again, calling something one thing with no supporting evidence doesn't make it so. But I digress.
However, this is what liberals kept doing even following the statement from Thad. They said things like,
"Stop giving a platform to racists, thanks"
"Have you ever considered that maybe if you have to keep vetting your membership for white supremacists and keep disavowing white supremacy that maybe the problem is with the group itself somehow being so consistently prone to this specific type of confusion? Just a thought..."
