Washington Post White House Bureau Chief Philip Rucker displayed a sizable amount of ignorance and prejudice by declaring the coronavirus quarantine protesters are President Donald Trump-supporting "neo-nazis."

Appearing on MSNBC with Brian Williams, Rucker compared the protesters to those who descended on Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017, describing them as "Trump's people."

The Washington Post reporter said:

Trump "sees his campaign banner. He knows that these are his supporters. They may not all be his supporters. We're not sure who they all are going to vote for in November. But many of them are Trump supporters, are waving Trump flags.”

He added:

“And Trump, the president, knows that he needs to show in solidarity with them. It's one of the reasons why, for example, after the Charlottesville attack, he showed solidarity with the neo-Nazi protesters there."

But Rucker's comparison between the quarantine protesters and actual white supremacists probably says more about his ignorance than anything else.

Moreover, the claim Trump was standing in solidarity with the neo-Nazis in Charlottesville is not even true and was debunked multiple times.

In 2017, the protest against the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee turned into a massive alt-right rally, which ultimately broke into violence and the murder of one counter-protestor.

Trump was asked several times about the deadly clashes during a press conference.

The President said there “very fine people, on both sides," but ultimately, the left-wing press took those words out of context and smeared Trump as a supporter of neo-nazis.

“I’ve condemned neo-Nazis,” Trump told reporters.

“I've condemned many different groups. But not all of [the people at the rally] were neo-Nazis, believe me. Not all of those people were white supremacists, by any stretch. Those people were also there because they wanted to protest the taking down of a statue, Robert E. Lee.”

What Trump meant was they were fine people there who didn't want the statue torn down, not neo-Nazis, who became the focus of the left-wing media.

“You had people, and I'm not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally," Trump said.

"But you had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists."

“If you look,” he added later.

“They were people protesting very quietly the taking down of the statue of Robert E. Lee. I'm sure in that group there were some bad ones.”

But Rucker's ignorant "neo-nazi" narrative ignores the fact that even law enforcement is pushing back against lockdown and stay at home orders.

As per a Breitbart Fact Check that Trump “showed solidarity with the neo-Nazi protesters” in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August 2017.

The VERDICT was False.

Trump said the neo-Nazis “should be condemned totally.”

This is the “very fine people” hoax.

Last week, a group of Michigan sheriffs rose up against their Democrat governor, declaring they will not strictly enforce Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s draconian stay-at-home order.

On Wednesday, Sheriffs from four different MI counties announced they are refusing to fully enforce Gov. Whitmer’s social-distancing restrictions that have been slammed by critics for going too far.

Leelanau County Sheriff Mike Borkovich, Benzie County Sheriff Ted Schendel, Manistee County Sheriff Ken Falk, and Mason County Sheriff Kim Cole made their position clear in a joint press release.

“While we understand her desire to protect the public, we question some restrictions that she has imposed as overstepping her executive authority,” the group said.
