Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe joined Black Lives Matter activist DeRay McKesson for his podcast and blatantly lied about caches of Nazi weapons found throughout the city of Charlottesville.
Just a few days ago, McAuliffe told the media the VA State Police were outgunned during Saturday’s violent protests, only to have a representative respond otherwise. McAuliffe is trying to sensationalize things that never happened to secure either terror and fear in the hearts of Virginians.
Telling McKesson these lies to ramp up an already hostile group, will result in the podcaster spreading the story the Governor said to him, which could net some horrific results. McAuliffe should be held accountable for telling this lie to a potential fire starter.
McKesson and his Black Lives Matter crew have been cited and jailed for causing disturbances and rioting for the past couple of years now. Many think Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, who is friends with McKesson help get him released a few times while other though George Soros had a hand in this.
Either way, McAuliffe’s actions have to be questioned now that another representative had rebuffed his claims.

I just got comment back from Virginia State Police. They say, contra McAuliffe, no caches of weapons were recovered. https://t.co/rCNtEBlPsn

Contradicting statements by Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, the Virginia State Police say they did not find caches of weapons stashed around Charlottesville in advance of last Saturday’s deadly white nationalist rally.
In an interview Monday on the Pod Save the People podcast, hosted by Black Lives Matter activist DeRay Mckesson, McAuliffe claimed the white nationalists who streamed into Charlottesville that weekend hid weapons throughout the town.
“They had battering rams and we had picked up different weapons that they had stashed around the city,” McAuliffe told Mckesson.
McAuliffe’s comments were picked up by other news outlets and spread through social media. But Corinne Geller, a spokesperson for the Virginia State Police, says that no such stashes were found.
“The governor was referring to the briefing provided him in advance of Saturday’s rally and the extra security measures being taken by local and state police,” Geller tells Reason. “As a safety precaution in advance of August 12, such searches were conducted in and around Emancipation and McIntire Parks. No weapons were located as a result of those searches.“

BTW, VA State Police say McAuliffe was wrong about both "weapons caches" and about cops being out-armed by Cville marchers. https://t.co/CvqvIYpgqv

Unbelievable! He’s a sitting governor stoking fires of retaliation and racism. I was reading that he doesn’t want Trump visiting Virginia. How can he even come to say that after promoting a lie?
