    Trump Is not the One Dividing Us By Race

    Long before the El Paso massacre, President Trumps political opponents accused him of sowing >division< with his >racist language.< Mr. Trump >exploits race,< >uses race for his gain,< is engaged in a >racially divisive reprise< of his 2016 campaign, stokes >racial resentments,< and puts >race at the fore,< the New York Times has reported over the past several months.
    Of course, this is all a bunch of lies.

    Mr. Trump rarely uses racial categories in his speech or his tweets. It is the media and Democratic leaders who routinely demonize individuals and groups by race and issue race-based denunciations of large parts of the American polity.

    Some examples: As race dominates the political conversation, 10 white Democratic candidates will take the stage (the Washington Post); Mr. Trumps rally audiences are overwhelmingly white (multiple sources); your sons whiteness is what protects him from not [sic] being shot by the police ( Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand ); white candidates need to be conscious of white privilege (South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg ); white supremacy manifests itself in the criminal-justice, immigration and health-care systems ( Sen. Cory Booker ); Michael Brown was murdered by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri ( Sen. Elizabeth Warren ); whiteness is the very core of Mr. Trumps power, whereas his predecessors made their way to high office through the passive power of whiteness (Ta-Nehisi Coates in the Atlantic).

    Liberal opinion deems such rhetoric fair comment, even obvious truth, not racially divisive.
    What a toxic double standard. It is manifestly divisive, and it is evil.

    I see the people throwing out the race card as the most prejudice out there.
    We are the Democrats. Resistance is Futile.

    We live in an extractive state, in which a ruling elite extracts wealth from the rest.

    Trump is the source of all that is wrong in this country. Didn't you see the perfect harmony that existed the entire time Obama was President?

    If these leftist idiots want to constantly demonize the 73% of the population, I say let them continue.

    He's fanning the flame, but I would say right wingers have been racist long before Trump.

    Yeah, right wingers have been hateful, racist a holes for a long time.

    We were united after 9/11, but Bush and the right had to ruin it (along with all the world's support) by invading Iraq. Suddenly not wanting to invade a country that had nothing to do with attacking us made us terrorist sympathizers and not real patriots who should leave the country.

    Right wingers have always divided the country, because they are such hateful, ignorant assholes hell bent on stifling progress

    Didn't you already post two similar topics? What is your end goal? Blame liberals for everything wrong in your life?

    What's Scaring People Isn't Trump's Rhetoric

    Parallels Between Today's SJWs and the Chinese Red Guard
    When this is all over, nobody will admit to ever having supported it. -- David Frum

    Trump does the things that Trump supporters hate and claim not to support, but they don't realize Trump and his people are the ones doing them.
