Have you ever been called a racist? I have. I’ve been called a racist by a member of my own family. She’s known me since infancy. She’s never heard me express a racist thought in her entire life. It’s one of the ugliest personal labels imaginable against another human being. She knows I’m not a racist. But I support President Trump so she called me a racist.
At least I’m not alone. Anyone who voted for or supports Donald Trump is a racist. That’s what she and the rest of the hard line leftists among us believe. Anyone who disagrees with any part of their irrational politics is a racist. They see racists behind every tree. Those who criticized President Obama, for example, are racists. Conservatives are racists. Republicans are racists. Libertarians are racists. Nationalists are racists. All white people are racists. Every political or social motive is racist.
It’s racist mania.
Farmer’s markets are racist. Did you know that? Yes, it’s because farmers’ markets cause “environmental gentrification” in which “habits of white people are normalized.” Farmer’s markets are “white spaces” oppressing minorities. They’re “exclusionary” because locals cannot “afford the food and/or feel excluded from these new spaces.” Obviously then, all farmers, including minorities, who sell their crops at farmer’s markets are racists.
Many of the trees that racists are hiding behind are racist themselves. That’s right. A row of trees separating a golf course from a “black” neighborhood have been deemed “racist” and must be chopped down. The mayor of Palm Springs and other city officials promised residents they would remove the tamarisk trees and a chain link fence along the property line as soon as possible because the trees were planted for racist reasons in the 1960s, and remained a lasting remnant of the history of segregation in the city.
People who object to federal spending have a racist motive, according to a study published in the American Politics Research journal. Despite benefitting the most from taxes, people in many of the United States’ poorest regions appear to oppose federal spending due to bigotry. “As one might have guessed from the racial undertones often present in public discussions on fiscal politics, greater racial resentment was associated with lower support for spending,” the report noted.
The list goes on and on. Leftists think that they can have their way politically if they call all their opponents racists.
It’s racist mania.
