It’s like the ‘easy button of left-wing politics’, quipped Don Jr. But they don’t stop to think of the damage it does.
That’s what happens when cheap-shot artists — including politicians and media — sling baseless smears in hopes of gaining some political advantage for their team.
But who does it hurt?
It slanders the people being unjustly called racists — but they don’t care about that. In fact, that’s exactly the goal.
Who ELSE does it hurt?
At the Ohio Rally, Don Jr. made the same point we’ve been making here at ClashDaily. It dilutes the word ‘racist’ and makes us take the real instances less seriously:
“It’s sad that using ‘racism’ has become the easy button of left-wing politics,” the president’s eldest son told the crowd overspilling the nearly 18,000-capacity U.S. Bank Arena Thursday. “…Because guess what? It still is an issue … But by making a mockery of it by saying every time you can’t win a fight — ‘Oh! We’re just gonna push the button! It’s racist’ —you hurt those that are actually afflicted by it. People hear it, they roll their eyes, and they walk on. And that’s a disgrace, and that’s what you’ve been given in the identity politics of the Left.”
It’s also a deflection from the REAL issues.
Instead of asking what is really happening in Baltimore when Trump tweets about it … circle the wagons and point the finger at ‘racist’ Trump. Even people allegedly on his own team fall into that trap.
How bad is the left’s broad-brushing of everyone as racist for everything?
The Blue-check crowd, naturally has been spinning overtime:
Stop telling me that EVERY Trump supporter is not racist. YES THEY ARE!
The word for someone who stands with, supports, votes for justifies, disseminates and Co-signs on an avowed racist is…. RACIST!

Next, the token ‘Republicans’. Even in denouncing this, she has to take a poke at Trump:
Worse than doing verbal acrobatics to avoid admitting Trump is a racist, is doing verbal acrobatics to avoid admitting Assad is a murderer.
Put Harris aside. Put debate aside. On its own, this is not a hard question.
For God’s sake, Assad gassed Syrian children to death. https://t.co/kLXY8KWQD8

Joe Walsh, knee-jerk NeverTrumper:
Nikki, do you agree with Trump that Rep Cummings is racist? Do you agree with Trump that 4 American Congresswomen should go back to where they came from?
Nikki, take a stand here. Don’t go all Mitt Romney on me. https://t.co/T4DLNgehYu

And of course, the ‘objective’ news itself brought it into the Dem Debates:
The debate was surprisingly going pretty good, quite fair and objective, until CNN's favorite propagandist began doing what he does best — push propaganda.
Don Lemon is TRASH. #DemDebate

So, why wouldn’t the ‘little people’ do the same?
Creepy people don’t want to be associated with Trump supporters. (And we’ve blacked out the name because we don’t want to support creepy people, see how that works?)
This ‘mom’ would rather her kid engage in felony assault with Antifa than vote Republican. Great job, ‘mom’!
I'm sorry. My son is a Trump supporter. We stopped arguing about it. He recently posted this on FB. I was so happy! Today I looked & it's gone. I guess his racist friends did not approve. 🙄 I'm not giving up on him. I raised him to be better. It's in there. pic.twitter.com/J44Xqu5nzJ

(Ps: keep bail money ready.)
It’s gotten to the point we’ve started mocking the cry of racism.

You know a slur is losing its sting when it becomes the butt of a joke. A badge ironically worn by those who’ve been tagged with it.
You know, like ‘bitter clinger’ and ‘deplorable’ did before it.
But when CNN starts inviting a White Supremacist on their program just so he can dump on Trump, you see the point we’re making: Race-Baiting CNN Invites Richard Spencer As Guest On Their Network
We’ve all seen the dishonest games the left have played with the power they’re entrusted with, they’re obviously unworthy of that trust.
But what about 2020? Could a moral person pull a lever for Trump with their integrity intact? Would Jesus himself vote for Trump? We’re glad you asked. There’s a brand new book that covers precisely that question:
“Would Jesus Vote For Trump?” by Doug Giles and Brandon Vallorani.
Would Jesus ever choose someone, with a less than stellar past, to be a leader? Would Jesus be cool with how Trump blasts CNN, The Left, and his feckless ‘compadres’ on The Right? What about Health Care? Would the Great Physician give Trump’s opposition to ObamaCare the ‘two thumbs up?’ Find out in this BEST-SELLER!
