    Democrats Have Always Called Republicans "Racists" and Other Vile Names

    Before Donald Trump The Left Accused Conservatives of Being "racist," "homophobe," "sexist," "mean-spirited," "insensitive" and much more.

    FDR was retroactively insinuating that Calvin Coolidge was a Nazi in 1944, and Walter Cronkite was doing the same to Barry Goldwater 20 years later. A lie repeated for three-quarters of a century...

    When the Newt Gingrich-led Republicans wanted to cut taxes and pursue welfare reform in the mid-nineties, the New York Times excoriated Gingrich for his "race-based, anger-charged politics" and compared him to southern segregationist George Wallace.

    Harlem's Democratic congressman Charles Rangel attacked Republican tax cuts as pure race hatred. "It's not 'spic' or 'nigger' anymore," Rangel growled. "They say, 'Let's cut taxes.' "

    Speaking on ABC's This Week, feminist and high-paid Gore consultant Naomi Wolf casually accused George W. Bush's "advisors" by whom she meant City Journal's editors of being "racist." Wolf's evidence? The truthful observation that some members of the underclass, because of their dysfunctional worldview, ignore the economic opportunities blossoming all around them.

    After the Republicans won the House in 1994 President Clinton said that "What [conservative Republicans] want to do," President Clinton said, "is make war on the kids of this country."

    Left-leaning host Bryant Gumbel asked liberal children's advocate Marian Wright Edelman a classic leading question: "In light of the new welfare-reform bill, do you think the children need more prayers than ever before?"

    Former Democratic New York governor Mario Cuomo evoked the image of "Republican storm-troopers."

    Another New York Democrat, Congressman Major Owens, went further: "These are the people," he thundered, "who are practicing genocide with a smile: they're worse than Hitler."

    A crazed nut-job attacked a practice of the congressional GOP baseball team. The hatred that drove 66-year-old James Hodgkinson to attempt a massacre of the Republican baseball team was that Republicans are sub-human haters. That hatred has been fermented by the Democratic Party...

    Democrats have portrayed their Republican opposition as sub-human, narcissistic, greedy, rich, fat-cat, corporate chieftains and/or hillbilly, gun-toting, women-hating, religious fanatics, and racist xenophobes who hate Jews and want to reinstitute slavery.

    Biden, speaking to a group of black supporters, told them that Republicans want to "put ya'll back in chains."

    I could go on with examples like this all day.

    This sort of rhetoric has not really changed since Pres. Trump was elected.

    If I don't answer your post it's because you lost the debate.

    Actually, today, it has nothing to do with party. We call racists racists. Honestly, it's not that difficult. For example, when someone is the leader of the racist Birther Movement, then they are a racist. And we will call them racists, because that's what they are.

    The reason it so often seems to be aimed at Republicans? Perhaps you are ignorant of some American history, so let me help you. This:

    Southern strategy - Wikipedia

    has led to virtually all the racists being gathered under the Republican banner. Take the time to learn about your own history, a Canadian shouldn't have to explain it to you.

    I don't understand why so many in Trump's base get upset when we point out people who are racists. Like Trump, the leader of the racist Birther Movement.

    Nobody wants to admit that they are a knuckle-dragger. It's easier to blame the messenger than to actually admit that they are garbage.

    You don't understand because you are incapable of being honest.

    It's a documented fact that Trump was the leader of the racist Birther Movement:

    Donald Trump Clung to ‘Birther’ Lie for Years, and Still Isn’t Apologetic - The New York Times

    Trump is still reportedly pushing his racist “birther” conspiracy theory about Obama - Vox

    Le phénomène Trump et la racialisation de la politique américaine
    (translation)
    Trump’s popularity is the outcome of the Republican Party’s longtime “Southern Strategy” that goes back to Nixon if not earlier, a coded appeal to white race prejudice and bigotry.6 The new White House incumbent is decidedly the GOP’s creature and the latest symptom of its crisis, a demagogue whose outspokenness made him the hero and mouthpiece of white nationalism and helped it morph into open militancy. There is grim irony in the fact that America’s first black President was “followed by the untitled leader of the Birther movement, a candidate slow to disavow support from the Ku Klux Klan7 and happy to receive the backing of white nationalists […]”; in that sense “Donald Trump can easily be portrayed as a personal repudiation and also proof of racial regression”.8

    They've provided all the links to reputable sources to support those statements. If you disagree, let me know which sources you disagree with and why.

    LOL!!

    Yep. All you have to do is attach the word "racist" to anything and that justifies your race card usage.
