Little surprise that anyone associated with the Clintons and the Democrat Party would blatantly lie to the public to further an agenda.

In an pandering session Monday on the Pod Save the People podcast, hosted by Black Lives Matter activist DeRay Mckesson, McAuliffe claimed the white nationalists who streamed into Charlottesville that weekend hid weapons throughout the town.

"They had battering rams and we had picked up different weapons that they had stashed around the city," McAuliffe told Mckesson.

McAuliffe's comments were picked up by other news outlets and spread through social media. But Corinne Geller, a spokesperson for the Virginia State Police, says that no such stashes were found.

"The governor was referring to the briefing provided him in advance of Saturday's rally and the extra security measures being taken by local and state police," Geller tells Reason. "As a safety precaution in advance of August 12, such searches were conducted in and around Emancipation and McIntire Parks. No weapons were located as a result of those searches."


Liars gotta lie.

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) reports that Jason Kessler, the organizer of last Saturday’s white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, is rumored to be a former Occupy Wall Street activist and supporter of Barack Obama. The left-wing SPLC is often partisan and overzealous in targeting right wing hate groups, lumping legitimate conservative organizations together with actual extremists. While I’ve been very distrustful of the SPLC over the years, for the SPLC’s identification of Kessler’s left-wing roots is significant. So folks, we've got Soros people on both sides of that protest..........73s

Given the hate-filled speech and the ensuing physical violence, it is remarkable that no shots were fired. We were a trigger-pull away from a bloody shootout with semi-automatic weapons.


Time magazine has jumped on the bandwagon. Even though guns weren't used, it's the topic of discussion. :banghead:
