Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez offered her opinion on whether President Trump's supporters are racist during an interview with Crooked Media's Pod Save America podcast. "First of all, the biggest mistake that we have — and it's a trap that gets set by the Right, whether intentionally or unintentionally — is just the frame of asking, 'Is blank racist?'" the New York Democrat explained, arguing the conversation needs to be about racism itself, not the people who ascribe to it. "Like all winning political phenomena ... they rely on coalition building," she continued.

If you want to know what's on a leftist's mind, just listen to what they accuse a Republican of doing. This is nothing more than dimocrat projection.

This garbage has to STOP. I am not a racist and I don't really know any racists. They only people in my lifetime that could possibly be thought of as anti-anybody would have been a few older people I knew when I was a kid and some of them had good reason for fearing people for their actions rather than color. I NEVER heard the "N word" growing up. My parents worked with a group from our church who helped genuine "migrant workers" who came each year to pick vegetables at the soup factory. We played with the kids at the camps and thought they had a great life (from a kid's perspective) In our area we have all kinds of people. We get along, we open doors for each other, my completely color blind grandchildren come and play with our neighborhood kids just like any other kids. My thirty-something kids did the same as children. There is an element in society, within all races, that most people try to avoid and that goes right back to accepting or rejecting people based on "the content of their character." I will admit to being racist if loud mouthed, lying leftist Democrats are now considered a "RACE."

Don't you know? If you disagree with ANYTHING that the lefties say, do, or believe in you are a racist. It's a very simple way to ostracize and shut down any opposing viewpoint, factual or not. AOC is incredibly tiresome, and like all Communists/Socialists, she cannot fathom a different point of view. Thank God for President Trump and all of the "racists" who voted for him in 2016 and for those who will vote for him again in 2020! MAGA

#5, good post, and likely a strong sentiment by majority. #9, I agree, most of us don't agree on EVERYTHING our wife, husband, child, or sibling think, or believe. That just means you have a different opinion, or idea, and does not mean you HATE the other person. Only Democrats think like that, it seems.

The word racist and the national consensus against it are not empty vessels for the Democrats to fill up. The consensus is against despising people of different background. And if there is a group in this country guilty of that it is the Democratic base.
