Virginia Governor Refuses To Condemn Antifa Violence, Condemns “Both Sides” Instead

When asked if he would condemn Antifa’s violence in Berkeley yesterday, Virginia’s Democratic Governor Terry McAuliffe chose to do what he, not even one month prior, shamed Trump for doing – he slammed ‘both sides.’

“I disavow anyone – we won’t tolerate violence of any kind,” The Independent Journal Review quotes McAuliffe as stating. “You’re entitled to protest. First Amendment certainly protected. As I’ve said after Charlottesville, anyone who came to our state, anyone who committed violence, on any side, will be arrested.”

When pointedly asked again if he would condemn Antifa’s actions on Monday night, he reportedly doubled down, declaring, “here’s what I do as governor, I denounce any individual who commits a crime, who commits violence on our citizens. We will get you, and we will arrest you, plain and simple. I don’t care what that group is.”

Of course, McAuliffe’s stance is quite interesting given his condemnation of President Donald Trump for expressing the exact same sentiment following this month’s chaos in Charlottesville, Virginia.

“I disagree strongly with the President,” McAuliffe told CBS at the time, in response to Trump’s claim that “you had a group on one side that was bad and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent.”

“One group came, and they wanted to harm people. On the other side were the folks who were protesting hatred and bias and bigotry. They are two, entirely separate groups.”

“Those remarks are dividing people,” he also stated. “We cannot be dividing people.”

McAuliffe also held nothing back while condemning those among the far-right who were violent at the Charlottesville event.

It appears McAuliffe is willing, however, to hop on the “both sides” train when it comes to violence that footage evidence suggests was largely carried out by one side – the left.

It’ll be interesting to see how those in the mainstream media will respond to Mr. McAuliffe’s remarks about two sides being responsible for yesterday’s violence – especially considering that the likes of The Washington Post have already reported that Antifa was the instigator.

Here’s a clip of CNN’s Don Lemon attacking President Trump’s ‘both sides’ comments.

Here’s Anderson Cooper doing the same thing.

Van Jones got in on the action too.

By the left’s logic, should we assume that McAuliffe supports Antifa until he caves and disavows them specifically?

INTERNET REACTS: Mike Cernovich Breaks Bombshell John Conyers Sex Abuse Story

Published

on

The internet is exploding at the sensational breaking news by Mike Cernovich about Democrat Rep. John Conyers’ repeated sexual abuse of female staffers and use of taxpayer funds for settlements related to that abuse.

Buzzfeed recognizes Mike Cernovich gave them the story, stating:

“Cernovich said he gave the documents to BuzzFeed News for vetting and further reporting, and because he said if he published them himself, Democrats and congressional leaders would “try to discredit the story by attacking the messenger.” He provided them without conditions. BuzzFeed News independently confirmed the authenticity of the documents with four people directly involved with the case, including the accuser.”

BuzzFeed’s article continues:

“Documents from the complaint obtained by BuzzFeed News include four signed affidavits, three of which are notarized, from former staff members who allege that Conyers, the ranking Democrat on the powerful House Judiciary Committee, repeatedly made sexual advances to female staff that included requests for sexual favors, contacting and transporting other women with whom they believed Conyers was having affairs, caressing their hands sexually, and rubbing their legs and backs in public. Four people involved with the case verified the documents are authentic.”

Over on Twitter, reaction to the news of Cernovich’s involvement in the story has been swift and sometimes salty:

Vice, Newsweek Silent After Journalist Accused Of Robbing, Injuring A Woman At Cernovich Event

Published

on

Vice, Newsweek and The Guardian remain silent after a journalist claiming to work for the media outlets was accused of robbing a woman and injuring her in the process outside Mike Cernovich’s Columbia University event in New York on Monday evening.

As New York Daily News reports, police arrested 30-year-old Arvind Dilawar – who now faces robbery and possession of stolen property charges – outside the event after he allegedly ripped a cellphone out of a 34-year-old woman’s hands and ran off.

As Mike Cernovich reported earlier today via Twitter, that woman is believed to be a journalist who was covering the protest outside Mike Cernovich’s event.

As of earlier this afternoon, Dilawar’s website – which is currently password protected – lists him as a writer for The Guardian, Vice and Newsweek.

Those outlets have not responded to requests for comment from Cernovich Media related to the incident.

Specifically, Cernovich Media wanted to know how those outlets were handling the serious allegations aimed at Dilawar. The writer himself has also not responded to a request from Cernovich Media for comment.

The circumstances surrounding Dilawar’s alleged theft remain unclear but an account from at least one other journalist covering last night’s protest outside Columbia University indicates that alt-leftists were less than welcoming towards journalists.

The hostility appears to have been rooted in a fear of having their faces exposed to the public – probably not an unfounded fear considering the infamous tale of one Eric Clanton.

Despite attempts by the alt-left to disrupt Mike Cernovich’s event at Columbia yesterday, the Gorilla Mindset author’s speech went more or less smoothly. Catch the full speech below.
