Democrats Are One Hundred
Percent Wrong about Racism

Original Article

Posted By: Pluperfect, 7/17/2019 5:09:34 AM

To say that the Democrats are obsessed with race these days is the equivalent of saying the sky is blue. I'm a racist. You're a racist. Donald Trump's a racist. Nancy Pelosi was a racist until she attacked Trump for racism. Your neighbor's a racist. Your insurance broker's a racist. Your dentist's a racist as well as your periodontist. All white males are racist. Some white females are racists, especially those married to white males. Everywhere a racist. Never mind that many of those people have no history of racism. It doesn't matter. Never mind that their families came here in 1923 to flee the Armenian Holocaust

Democrats all know that racism, the true definition of the word, no longer exists in the USA. What they actually mean when they accuse someone of "racism" is "Shut up! and kneel before your socialist masters!" That creative definition is not yet in Webster's Dictionary, but will probably make the 2020 edition.

What I like about this entire "racist" dustup is that it brings our utter racism-fatigue and disgust into the public forum in order to centrifuge the real racists to the edges of society where they can be revealed, debunked and disavowed, like Liz Cheney did. More of our people should do likewise, the cowards.

There are many people that are growing up with manipulated induced paranoia. They are learning to hate the police, who are there to support their communities and people because of their color. Much is based on anecdotal evidence because most of the systemic issues have been fixed. Expecting all people and institutions to be perfect all the time is a nice goal but impossible. Even the old guys that set this up wrote, "to form a 'more' perfect union."

Many people use slang to describe those of a different Race! Rude to say the least. Although most of those people don’t and never would take any action to prevent the other from getting a job, or prevent their Free Speech or their Pursuit of Happiness...The American Dream! Being Rude is not Racism!

The Chicken Littles of the world screaming "RACIST" at the top of their lungs anytime they're offended by something have completely diluted the true meaning of the word. I see it and scroll, which is a sad state for those who truly ARE victims of racism.

Why do black Americans go along with this? Ocasio-Cortez is as likely to be a victim of racism as J-Lo. Somalian is not a race. Neither is Muslim. And Trump never even identified these women or mentioned their race. Trump’s alleged racism is an invention of the Democrats and the corrupt media.

Racism is just another excuse claimed by those who somehow feel inferior or are ashamed of themselves but try to turn it into a Pride condition. We understand. Their accomplishments throughout history are not quite up there on a par with Whites. It's okay, people, we have given you every opportunity to thrive and excel. Those of you who have not used those opportunities and made something of yourselves can not rightfully blame anyone else. We will wait patiently for you to catch up. Meanwhile, stop expending all of your energy through your mouths and get to work.

Whatever you want to call it, PDT is forcing the Marxists to play their hands in full view so that even the Marxist voters can see what their Marxist leaders have been hiding for decades, AND they can witness the Marxist propagandists openly lie and obfuscate for the Marxist leaders 24/7/365. He is literally forcing them to marinate in their own nonsense in full, unedited view of everyone. He doesn't pretend like the rest of the GOP. He knows who and what these people are and they are not people who will ever change; BUT their voters might and I think it's really all he has. The GOP is terrified to pull back the curtain of the Wizards of Marx as demonstrated by "Buuuuh, buuuuuh, bipartisan, buuuh, turn down the buuuuhh temperature" McConnell and the rest of the GOP. Graham defended Trump because Graham is up for election and has to fool his voters into thinking he's a conservative (and they're buying it). Trump pulls back the curtain every day. The House didn't pass a resolution against Trump. They passed a resolution against anyone (the means you too Rio Lindans) who dares to disagree with their Marxist afterburn to full frontal Venezuela.

Nothing says it better than what AOC said: "Acknowledge the fact that we are women of color, so when you do single us out, be aware of that and what you're doing, especially because some of us are getting death threats, because some of us are being singled out in many ways because of our backgrounds, because of our experiences and so forth." A clear demonstration that in her mind people of color have special status in society special protection against being called out for what they say and do. To ":single them out" is like tackling Tom Brady in practice. In their rule book challenging anything a person of color says or does is "racism. " In our rule book their rule defining different standards based on color is in and of itself racism. (presuming one accepts the equivalence between color and race) My Italian wife's family can get darker than a significant proportion of the African American community in the summer. And they'd ask her to pony up for reparations in a heartbeat despite her parents arrival in the twentieth century. It's not about color, it's not about slavery, its not about race, its only about power control and money.

I don’t think there is any group more racist than the Left. They make you think they are so virtuous, but underneath it all, they are hateful of everybody. That great liberal, Bob Beckel (remember him?) got fired from Fox News for calling a maintenance man a N* in a probably alcohol hazed snit fit over changing a light bulb. I go along with No. 12. All you have to do is observe these groups in what they do and say and come to your own conclusions. I think it’s obvious.

Racist is a tiring word that is slung around like grandma's hash. The article is correct the word is applied to everything that someone may disagree with to the point of ridiculous. In Webster's 2020 edition "racist" - a word used to describe a person as being a 'big meanie' example like Donald Trump.

Subtract the Black violent crime rate from the equation and the US numbers are slightly better than Sweden. Further.....It's good to remember that "Cops", while often involved in gun related injuries, do not initiate these encounters....rather, they are duty bound to respond and go headlong into violent situations to protect the innocent and enforce the law. Blaming Cops for being involved in gun violence is like blaming heart surgeons for coronary disease. The only "Shots" of interest to the Left are "CHEAP SHOTS" !

Clearly President Trump, in his NY Queens vernacular, that is always misrepresented by the liberal media, was clearly responding to the leftist and liberal Democrat socialist based political agenda that is away out of the political mainstream as far as Republicans and most Americans who will actually vote in the upcoming election are concerned. If those four Democrat socialist congresswomen “of color” had instead been of Norwegian ancestry, chances are Trump would have created about the same tweets. As Trump is right, in that chances are, those four Democrat socialist congresswomen were elected in economically deprived low income districts with very high crime rates. So what is wrong with Trump admonishing those congresswomen to return to and fix those problems in the Congressional Districts where they were elected and stop trying to project those problems on the entire country? This is just another instance of the Democrats fraudulently playing the race card, as they have always done in the past against the Republicans during the modern era, which at times gained the Democrats some short term political success. As the wimpy establishment Republicans would usually run to hide under their mattresses until the smoke cleared. Apparently the Democrats have not yet figured out playing the race card will not work against Trump, and just gives Trump another opportunity to “out” the Democrats and their far left socialist political agenda with the American people who will actually vote in the 2020 election.

The older I get and, consequently, the more I learn, I am convinced that the dems lie about EVERYTHING. Did you know that as many whites as blacks were lynched? Did you know that in the south most were black because blacks voted republican? According to David Barton’s extensively well-documented book, "Setting the Record Straight: American History in Black & White," the original targets of the Ku Klux Klan were Republicans, both black and white. So many layers and layers of lies coming from the lynching party accusing others of being racist. It BLOWS my mind.

Watching the four-woman “squad” respond to President Trump’s already famous Tweets urging “progressive” Democrats to “go back” to their “original countries,” one wonders why Rep. Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts would want to be lumped in with the other three. Pressley’s remarks were standard-issue liberal, but restrained and dignified in the face of Trump's out-of-bounds comments. The other three Democrats handled the situation very differently, combining mendacity, smears, and radicalism in ways with which Pressley should not want to be associated. Pressley never even used the words “racist” or “racism.” Using the words correctly, she accused Trump of making remarks that were “xenophobic and bigoted.”
