John McCain, Mitt Romney side with far-left Antifa against Trump on Twitter

It seems that both Mitt Romney and Sen. John McCain, the alleged “Republican” from Arizona, have bought into the false media narrative surrounding the Charlottesville, Virginia, melee and are now supporting the far-left Antifa against President Trump.

In tweets posted on Tuesday, both men claimed that one side — meaning Antifa and their allies — opposes hate and bigotry.

“No, not the same. One side is racist, bigoted, Nazi. The other opposes racism and bigotry. Morally different universes,” Romney said.

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

“There’s no moral equivalency between racists & Americans standing up to defy hate& bigotry. The President of the United States should say so,” McCain added, obviously ignorant of Trump’s repeated statements castigating both sides in the incident.

This didn’t sit too well with quite a few people on social media:



Apparently, they’re now McCain’s heroes as well.

Good point.  In fact, it’s this kind of waffling and pandering to the left that cost both men their runs for the White House.



Bingo.  And that’s the message President Trump has been trying to get out, but propagandists in the media continue to push the lie that only one side was violent in Charlottesville.

“I think there is blame on both sides,” Trump said in a contentious back-and-forth with reporters on Tuesday. “You look at both sides, I think there is blame on both sides. I have no doubt about it; you don’t have doubt about it either. If you reported it accurately, you would say that.”

“You had a group on one side and the other and they came at each other with clubs and it was vicious and horrible. It was a horrible thing to watch. There is another side. There was a group on this side, you can call them the left…that came violently attacking the other group,” he added.

One person reminded McCain of what he’s now supporting:


Let’s be clear — there were no “good guys” in Charlottesville last Saturday.  On one side were white supremacists with violent radical leftists on the other.  Average Americans were caught somewhere in between, and it cost one woman her life.  President Trump has made that clear multiple times.

One person tried to educate Romney:

This kind of nonsense is precisely the reason that Michael Snyder, a GOP candidate for Idaho’s 1st Congressional District, said that all RINOs — Republicans in name only — need to go.

Will the two men take note?  Somehow, we doubt it.
