If everything is racist, nothing is racist

We live in a society that is obsessed with two things:

1. Talking about race.
2. Pretending we never talk about race

The media and Democrats love to call people racist. Sometimes people are racist, but in 2018 they almost always have to make it up.

Allow me to present the upcoming 2018 election in two clips:

1. Antifa is viewed as a black organization, so the president is being racist for criticizing them:

No one truly believes this.

2. “monkey this up” is a racist phrase:

In order to believe this as it is being described, we have to believe that Florida’s GOP gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis went on television and said in the worst secret code ever, “Don’t vote for the black guy!”

The problem here is quite obvious. Racism is real and racism exists. But calling every Republican you can find racist for things that are obviously not racist doesn’t help anyone.

Last week, the head of the Alabama Democrat Party said Sen. Doug Jones (R-Mountain Brook) was showing a “tiny bit of racism” for opposing her. It was absurd.

These two examples are equally absurd. If we are truly going to combat the last vestiges of racism that are operating in the dark corners of our society we have to understand that falsely calling people racist doesn’t help one bit.

The media spent a lot of time playing clips of John McCain calling out a woman maligning Obama as an “Arab,” and will now malign DeSantis for purely partisan reasons.
