The Racist Card
By Michael J. Lewinski
One must ask, are persons of color completely exempt from being called out for their bad policies? The public reaction to President Trump’s tweets about Congressman Cummings and the four horses of the apocalypse were labeled as racist. Can these people be held accountable for the harm they inflict upon their constituents?
Because Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a person of color, should her Green New deal not be criticized? Should we not point out eliminating the internal combustion engine in 10 years is looney tunes just because of her ethnicity? Should we not criticize Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib for their anti-semitic attitudes and comments? Does the color of their skin give them the right to be bigoted? Of course not.
Leftist Progressives employ the racist card to silence anyone with whom they disagree or whose message they want to block. It cannot be claimed that Baltimore is not a dirty city or rat-infested. It cannot be claimed that Baltimore is a crime-infested hell hole or that their inner-city schools fail their students in giving them a decent education. The cry of racism is meant to obscure these facts.
The racist card has the same objective as does “politically correct speech.” They are both designed to eliminate speech which these people want to be crushed. No, no, no, you can’t bring up inconvenient topics. They are ostensibly offensive.
Are you going to go along with their efforts to shut down free speech? Are you going to allow them to censor your thoughts and feelings? Where will it end? Will it end before you can be sentenced to jail for committing the crime of hate speech? In the Socialist state they seek, people have been put to death for wrong think.
It will only end when we the people say enough is enough. Don’t listen to them and vote the Progressive Democrats out of office. They do not play the race card. They encourage freedom of thought and freedom of speech.
