    It's not enough to say Donnie is racist.

    In fact, it might be helping him.



    Too often, we correctly identify something he says as racist, and stop there. We rely on reasonable people being horrified at racism and rejecting it and those who push it.

    What we forget is that his hardcore 40% of supporters already know this and like it about him. They don't care for the *word* racist, because it has a negative connotation. But they fully believe everything the word stands for -- that the mere whiteness of their skin conveys some superiority over everyone else.

    Calling Donnie out on racism merely helps enter white supremacy into the national debate. It helps normalize the question -- a question that should have been put to rest in 1865.


    Instead, we must go further and condemn racism as morally bankrupt, un-American, dangerous, something that could lead to civil war, insulting to a majority of Americans, etc.

    We must press the point that his speech is *harmful* and *damaging to anerica* and not merely something we're casually offended by.
    And the more they claim he is 'racist' the more Republicans/conservatives will support him because they will see the accusations as political hate and weaponization of something that is abhorrent.

    Criticizing or confronting someone for their actions and beliefs is not racist just because their skin happens to be brown or black.

    Expecting our immigration LAWS to be followed and enforced is not racist just because a number of illegal immigrants happen to have black or brown skin.

    Defining EVERYONE by their skin color IS RACIST. Claiming your skin color gives you superiority such that no one can disagree with you IS RACISM. Claiming that Black people are to dumb, ignorant and lazy to get an ID that everyone needs for multiple activities every week IS RACISM. ALL of which DEMOCRATS embrace and encourage.

    1. Trump needs his base to

    believe that he is strong, but in fact bullies are weak. However, he could easily be humiliated by constantly repeating that he is a weak bully! I don't think he minds being called a racist - that feeds his base and they love it...but calling him a bully may hit a nerve.
    RIIIGHT. Answering back to liberal BULLIES is Bullying. /s

    They're beside themselves because what has happened in the past - their ability to brand a Republican as racist, dumb, etc - without him/her answering back is gone, and they don't know what to do because getting more and more extreme isn't working.
    Liberals are divorced from reality and they think it's great. When you live in la la land you're never wrong, it's always the other person/groups fault and you can believe what you want to believe and call it 'truth'.

    Unless they have proof of a racist-statement or action, they're just typing online... yearning for a girlfriend.

    Funny how this racist president is trying to get a black rapper out of jail in Sweden.
    Progressivism is a bottomless pit of absurdity.

    It is helping President Trump because you have completely worn out the meaning of the word.

    All you Libtards do is scream 'RRRRACIST'
    when you don't like someone. Tell ya what
    DUmmies, it's not going to work anymore.

    Scream it all you want, it's just starting to
    make you all look stupid. Keep it up, a
    regular Repub would have caved by now.

    The President laughs at you. So do I.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    DU-Moron unblock should have stopped with his/her first sentence and finished with, "We need to prove it with evidence." But no, (s)he had to plunge into Hillary's "Basket of Deplorables" shtick.

    This real-life Trump voter has helped drive a Stormfronter off a discussion forum. This real-life Trump voter banned real racists and antisemites from a discussion forum. This real-life Trump voter left a discussion forum when one of the Mods stated that posting racial epithets would be tolerated as long as the target was not a member. This real-life Trump voter taught his children that racism is wrong and stupid, after having first shown this for years through our lives.

    This real-life Trump voter hates racism and false accusations alike.
    Facts don't matter to DUpipo.
