The Washington Post's Fake News On Trump's Alleged Racism

It is clear to us that it is not President Trump’s choice of the word “dog” to describe a disloyal staffer that is driving this latest example of "Trump is a racist" yellow journalism, it is Trump’s rising popularity among black voters that has the determinedly Leftwing Washington Post in a panic.

There’s Nothing “Right” Or Conservative About Neo-Nazis

Just as they did in Nazi Germany, Neo-Nazis are fighting for the allegiance of working-class voters by blaming the loss of their upward mobility and quality of life on racial grievance, this only serves the interests of Leftwing politicians bent on dividing America along racial and ethnic lines.

Overused Cries of Racism Make It Harder for Us to Unite

John Fund, National Review

If we wonder why our conversation has become so stilted and so unable to incorporate language that helps us solve problems, let’s acknowledge that crying racism in today’s political theater is sure to create both more smoke and more fire. Before it gets any worse, let’s have as many people of good will as possible declare that, for at least a bit, we should stick to the dictionary definition of racism.

Trump's Not a Racist; He's a 'Scorch'

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Our scorch-in-chief, being constantly under attack for matters large and small, almost always fights back in the grand tradition of all scorches. Called a racist ad infinitum, he struck back the other day with some interesting facts on that greatest of playing fields for the modern scorch -- Twitter. "Unemployment for Black Americans is the lowest ever recorded. Trump approval ratings with Black Americans has doubled. Thank you, and it will get even (much) better!"

What’s the Point of Labeling Trump a Racist?

Ben Shapiro, National Review

None of this excuses Trump’s idiotic and obscene statements. And none of it means that the media are wrong to criticize those statements. But applying the “racist” tag to Trump as a human being isn’t journalism. It’s laziness and opportunism masquerading as bravery. And it only alienates Americans who would prefer to analyze events and statements with clear eyes, rather than through the prism of Trump’s supposed bigotry.

The Reflexive Racism of the American Left

Jeffrey Lord, The American Spectator

We are indeed at a moral crossroads. And those of us who believe in Dr. King’s dream of a colorblind America where all Americans are judged not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character understand that the “bigotry and racist vitriol” in this country is not coming from President Trump or his supporters but rather from the American Left and the Democratic Party.

GOP Nice Guys Will Finish Last In 2018

Republicans running in 2018 should expect the same kind of anti-Trump ads and attacks from Democrat-affiliated race-baiters that Ed Gillespie was subjected to, so the time to start thinking about how to get ahead of them is now.

What Truly Imperils A Free Society?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

The Justice Department should report on hate crimes by white racists. But from the stats, anti-white racism is far more common and far more manifest in crimes of violence. Who reports that truth? The left has been marinated in an ideology where the enemy is always to the right. People blinded by ideology, unable to see the true enemies of their civilization, end up losing it, and their lives as well.

The Knock-Down, Drag-Out Society

William Murchison, The American Spectator

The age — our age — the age of the instant accusation, the flat, declarative dismissal of the other side’s case for anything — has a style that works fine for winning elections. And pulling down other people’s memorials. For uniting, moving to a better place, fixing things, affirming life at other than the knock-down, drag-out level — well, that’s another matter. Obviously.

The startling reality facing America in wake of Virginia white power rally

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

The coercive demand for purity, enforced by violence, often feels staged for political effect aimed at Trump. The surge of sensitivity seems especially odd given that the issue was not as prominent during the tenure of Barack Obama, America’s only black president.

If We Erase Our History, Who Are We?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Our new America is to be a land where all races, tribes, creeds and cultures congregate, all are treated equally, and all move ever closer to an equality of results through the regular redistribution of opportunity, wealth and power. We are going to become “the first universal nation.” “All men are created equal” is an ideological statement. Where is the scientific or historic proof for it? Are we building our utopia on a sandpile of ideology and hope?

Is Charlottesville What's Really Going On in the USA?

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

What happened in Charlottesville isn't us. It's just a small group of real bad people. Indict them, convict them, and lock them up for a long as possible. The rest of us should move on. We have a lot better things to do.

The Most Asinine Claim About the AHCA

David Catron, The American Spectator

We have a consensus: Partisan academics, biased journalists, unemployed Obama administration hacks, and clueless comediennes agree that there can be but one reason to repeal Obamacare — and it has nothing to do with the failure of the “reform” law to accomplish any of its ostensible goals. It’s all about racism. This is certainly not the only spurious pretext concocted by the left to denounce AHCA, but it is easily the most asinine.

Today’s Blood Libel: A Democrat Specialty

Ross Kaminsky, The American Spectator

If Barack Obama or John Lewis or Cory Booker or Hillary “Who?” Clinton are going to imply that any of those people, or any other Republicans, or you, or I are racists — the only card they have left to play in a country that has witnessed so many years of the failure of “progressive” policies — we, and especially you Republicans, must push back.

At Sessions’ hearing, Dems live up to the party’s tradition of racism

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Every single Democrat on the committee, in some way or another, attacked Mr. Sessions from the standpoint of race or religion or sex, accusing him of not embracing physical diversity as lustily as they would like. Which is pretty amazing considering the Senate Judiciary Committee is 90 percent white, more than 90 percent male and 100 percent ancient. We should start a campaign demanding that some of these guys voluntarily give up their seat on the committee to a minority. According to some of their own definitions, they must be racist!

Democrats honed the dog whistle of racism on Sessions

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Now, Mr. Sessions will once again face the United States Senate to be President Donald Trump’s attorney general. The same liberal special interest groups in Washington who thwarted him 30 years ago have declared that they aim to do the same to him this time.

The Exhausted Epithets of the Left

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The Left’s trivialization of the charge of racism only made it easier for Trump to win. Previous GOP candidates lived in dread fear of the media’s PC mau-mauing. Trump didn’t and ended up getting a higher percentage of the Black and Hispanic vote than Romney.

The Media is Showing Peak Trump Hatred

Erick Erickson, The Resurgent

Conservatives often note that when everything is “racist” according to the left, it becomes really hard to identify when something actually is really racist. The message gets diluted. In the same way, the over the top, overwrought coverage of Donald Trump is starting to become white noise and the really absurd and also the not too shabby aspects of Team Trump are fading into the white noise.

Hillary Clinton and Establishment GOP Join Forces Against the Alt-Right

The reason why Brexit resonated and Trump resonated isn’t that people are racists or too stupid to understand the arguments. The reason they resonated is that people have been so screwed by the prevailing order in such deep and fundamental and enduring ways that they can't imagine that anything is worse than preservation of the status quo.

Steve Scalise Must Go As House Republican Whip

Steve Scalise is either too dumb to be Republican Whip, or just plain lying about his association with David Duke's despicable racist organization, because none of what he has said about his association with Kenneth Knight, a leader of Duke's racist group has made the least bit of sense to anyone with even a low voltage BS detector.
