I like it!
The charge of “racism” doesn’t carry the same stigma that it used to. What used to bring shame now brings indifference.
Plus whether the elites know it or not, white people are constantly stating sarcastically “well it’s only racism if a white person does it”. People know we (conservatives of all colors) are now the victims of unending racial programs and racial arguments, and we are getting sick of it.
It does have its uses... Being called a racist is a sure way to know you just won an argument.
If someone calls me racist, I’m pretty much... ‘yeah, so?’
“What are you going to do about it?”
Because it works every 4 years to get out the lib base voter.
Damn sure it works. You’d be surprised (or maybe you wouldn’t) at the numbers of people who identify as black or non-white on internet forums who insist that they can’t be racist “because I have no power.” That’s like saying they can’t be evil in other matters because they have no power. It’s almost impossible to dissuade them from their lunatic beliefs. And they swallow anything the Dem Party ladles out.
George displays his usual keen grasp of the obvious.
That is sort of a side issue.
Obama stirs up a lot of this type of animosity and jealously between groups because he and Dems are convinced that it will work up more Americans to go out and vote against Rs than it will other Americans to go out and vote against Ds.
The conventional wisdom is that those who would only vote D never R vastly outnumber those who will vote only R but never D.
