And at the moment, they appear to be in denial about it. Peter Beinart on an outrageous Democratic attack on Nikki Haleyand why Democrats need to strongly denounce it.

Can be? CAN BE?
By definition, liberals ARE racist! It is baked into their philosophy of pandering, head-patting and sense of superiority!
Advocating the shotgun instead of the rifle like Biden does IS RACIST. IT is a means to avoid hurting bystanders when going after material targets that bothers them.
They do not want us to have this political ability in the showdown with the fascist state to win hearts and minds by going after their material targets instead of the humane ones they are going after to enslave in death camps.
In pre-WWI South Africa, the communists and radicals fought for the right of the (white) workers to continue to exclude black competitors from the mines and factories.

Apparently Alvin Greene was the smart guy in the SC Democratic Party.
LOL!!! Well done.
Thank you kindly.
Not all unions.

Can be racist? When aren’t they racist?
FReepers have this well in hand. No help needed here.
That article title mentions Democrats, plural. Turns out, it's just one RAT, one of South Carolina's biggest a$$holes, Dickie Boy.
