To understand the current “racist” label in politics, you must uncover the overriding current philosophy on the far left. And that comes down to this: the United States has always been a patriarchy run by evil, corrupt white guys who delight in delivering pain to everyone else.
Put Donald Trump’s picture next to that definition.
The radical left is so extreme on this that even socialist bomb-thrower Bernie Sanders is now being shunned by some of his fellow travelers. Old white guys do not have it going on in 2019.
Recently, a tape was uncovered where Congresswoman Ilhan Omar from Illinois warned Americans that white men are the primary cause of violence in the USA and we had better watch them.
Similar “white guys are malignant” stuff appears in the media nearly every day with the subliminal message being women and minorities should be running the country, calling all the shots.
Of course, the aforementioned Donald Trump is the template for anti-white male sentiment. For more than three years, the President has been ruthlessly attacked by many leftwing women and minorities. But if Mr. Trump counterattacks, he is branded a racist and misogynist. So he can’t defend himself without bringing on further attacks.
It doesn’t help that the President often personalizes his verbal missiles as the recent “go back to where you came from” controversy clearly demonstrates. The personal attacks by the President often obscure his valid points, thereby giving his opponents cover and momentum.
The Elijah Cummings – Trump dust up illustrates this point. Congressman Cummings, head of the House Oversight Committee, is doing everything he can to wreck Trump’s presidency. No question about that. So the President is angry with Cummings and tweeted that he has not improved bad conditions in his own district. Then Mr. Trump gets personal and calls that area of Baltimore “rat and roach infested.” Presto! Trump’s a racist. Again.
The President should have remembered the firestorm over his “S-hole countries” remark. Whenever you denigrate places where people reside those folks are going to be offended. And since many blacks live in Baltimore, the reoccurring drumbeat strikes up: Trump’s a racist, an evil white man.
It doesn’t matter that Elijah Cummings and everyone else in Baltimore knows his district is in tough shape. The media will not allow non-minorities to state that. In America today, speech that criticizes “people of color” is racist speech. And don’t you forget it.
So far, the majority of Americans have not bought into the “white men are evil” campaign but the committed left media surely has.
Therefore, the political landscape now favors non-white men, at least in the Democratic Party precincts and that’s something of which Joe Biden should be acutely aware.
With the hugging attacks and the Kamala Harris busing thing, white guy Joe has taken two to the head.
One more and there could be a knock out. Another white guy bites the dust.
