This riot kicked off what Michael Barbaro on his NYTimes The Daily podcast called “A Year of Reckoning in Charlottesville” which is worth a clickthrough if you like listening to the Left eat itself alive. The CSM came to the same conclusion that "For people of Charlottesville, a long year of reckoning" followed the August 2017 riots and part of that reckoning included:
In December, an independent report on the Charlottesville protests by a former US attorney for Western Virginia, Timothy Heaphy, found considerable fault with city government, particularly the Charlottesville Police Department.
“When violence was most prevalent, CPD commanders pulled officers back to a protected area of the park, where they remained for over an hour as people in the large crowd fought on Market Street,” the report said. It also quoted two close associates of Police Chief Al Thomas as hearing him say, “Let them fight.”
Chief Thomas, the first African-American appointed to the post, denied the comment but resigned.
When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didn’t work out. Good work by General Kelly for quickly firing that dog!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 14, 2018
Omarosa Manigault Newman released her tell-all memoir "Unhinged" to coincide with White Nationalist Anniversary and spent the weekend running down DJT by claiming that he's been recorded using the N-word on the set and stating that he's mentally and physically unfit to be POTUS. The same #FakeNews scum who had ridiculed Omarosa when she was working in the White House now gave her hours of air time and let her say some of the craziest things I've ever heard from a disgruntled ex-employee with no proof except a few clandestinely recorded work conversations. I don't know who Trump was referring to in his infamous tweet (perhaps it was Anthony Scaramucci) but the Democrats and their #FakeNews PR firm assumed the POTUS was calling Omarosa who's a long time friend, loyal supporter and Machiavellian throat cutter of the first order a dog. "Omarosa Was Reportedly Fired for Abusing the White House Car Service" in December of 2017 (5 months after the C-ville riots), and if you're gullible enough to believe that excuse then keep in mind that 'In Trump world everyone lies', then started writing her book which was given an August 13th release date. Perfect timing and just sitting there on the side of Rt. 29 South which leads to Charlottesville so Br'er Rabbit stopped the car, got out and started batting her around - and got stuck. Then le trebuchet started hurling stones and reduced the Charlottesville Anniversary story to rubble. Br'er Rabbit looked on in disbelief and started demanding to be tossed into the the brier patch so that he might once again make his escape. "Black Americans aren't buying Omarosa's turn against Trump" but that's because they're smart and are used to wearing the crown of thorns Br'er Rabbit fashions for them. Some of the media clowns got that sinking feeling that something had gone terribly wrong but they spoke up way too late to save themselves. Br'er Rabbit is glued to Omarosa and his long delayed day of reckoning has arrived.
My guess is that The Elvis from Queens and Omarosa will heal their ruptured relationship in about a year and she'll be out on the campaign trail in 2020 aiming to Keep America Great.
