    The Party Stupid Enough to Call You a Racist...

    ...is too stupid to govern.

    The "insult them and shame them until they join us" strategy isn't going to work.

    Many people don't like Trump, but they like being smeared as a bunch of racists even less. They dislike and are repelled by the unfair and false rhetoric coming from the extreme left, which appears to be in control of the Democratic Party agenda.

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

    If Trump supporters don't like being called racists, then they shouldn't support a racist like Trump. Too bad so sad, move along.

    Precisely this. Then again, freedom of speech is a good thing for this particular reason; the public is thus informed of the hideous beliefs of a variety of people, and can shun them accordingly.

    PJ Media?

    Seriously?

    A right wing trash blog that has a long history of echoing Trump’s race baiting is lecturing people about calling out their own editorial policy?

    Nobody reads this trash other than Trumpsters, anyway.

    IMO anyone who tries to demonize their opponents instead of directly addressing an issue has lost whatever argument they think they are making.

    So while I might agree that labeling people racist, sexist, etc. is no argument, I have to point out that calling anyone "stupid" is also not an argument.
    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    I think the American people are wearying of "If you don't agree with me, you're a racist."

    From your source (and referring to a Beto O'Rourke remark):

    This is really, really stupid. Most Americans don't hate Trump as much as most liberal Democrats do. Most Americans see through the hysterical exaggerations about Trump and many appear bewildered by the vitriol. Even if they don't like Trump -- and there are many reasons not to -- the Democrats' rhetoric offends their sense of fair play. Thus, every time Democrats go off on Trump, accusing him of all sorts of perfidy and hateful things, Trump probably gets another 10,000 votes.

    Unlikely. Trump's 'popularity' has tanked.

    Or, everyday Americans can just view the propaganda the indoctrinated on the left are controlled with, and vote accordingly.

    The bolded section is a reasonable assessment, and posits an interesting point of discussion.

    That is negated when the target audience is labeled in such a way that they won't bother to consider it, so angered and focused are they on the labeling.

    This has been my problem with many conversations in this Forum. That many members revert to school-yard bullying tactics of labeling and denigrating rather than arguing and discussing.

    Once you've called someone "stupid," or "racist," or whatever, you have ended an argument and diverted to a personal dispute.

    I agree with the bolded section of this citation. I think the tactics being used by the Democrats are backfiring on them, but they can't see it because the MSM supports such narratives and bolsters them because it sells news/views.

    I pretty much expected the usual suspects to double down on the "you're all a bunch of racists" strategy. They should prepare themselves to be losers in 2020.
