It's Not a Sin to Go to Church, Unless You're Donald Trump

There is no conclusion so biased and unfair that the Opposition Media, leftists, and weak Republicans won’t jump to if it can possibly damage President Donald J. Trump.

You saw the headlines last week. The welfare mothers at NPR wrote, "Park Police Tear Gas Peaceful Protesters To Clear Way For Trump Church Photo-Op."

The "failing" New York Times chimed in with, "Protesters Dispersed With Tear Gas So Trump Could Pose at Church."

And those two political carrion-feasters, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., wailed, "Across our country, Americans are protesting for an end to the pattern of racial injustice and brutality we saw most recently in the murder of George Floyd. Yet, at a time when our country cries out for unification, this President is ripping it apart.

"Tear-gassing peaceful protestors without provocation just so that the President could pose for photos outside a church dishonors every value that faith teaches us."

Adults who depend on Pelosi and Schumer to inform them what "faith" teaches have bigger problems than this column can address today. Republicans who followed their lead and elbowed their way on the Teargas Trump bandwagon should have known better, but they prove over and over again that they don’t.

WTOP radio (Washington, D.C.) reports internal U.S. Park Police sources told it the OpMedia narrative on Trump’s visit was false. "A source says tear gas was never used —instead smoke canisters were deployed, which don't have an uncomfortable irritant in them. And, the source says Park Police didn't know President Trump would be walking across the park several minutes later."

And it seems the OpMedia’s beloved "peaceful protesters" weren’t so peaceful after all.

As Fox News summed up the situation, "U.S. Park Police reportedly say protesters near the White House were pushed back by riot police on Monday evening because they were attacking police officers, not because of a visit by President Trump to a nearby church that had been set alight the night before."

Here are the facts. Trump did visit a church across the street from the White House that had been burned by "peaceful protesters" the night before. And he visited about the same time "peaceful protesters" were pushed out of Lafayette Square. However, there was no connection — other than time of day — between the two events.

For the Opposition Media and the left the facts are never allowed to get in the way of a good anti-Trump story.
