Analysis/Opinion – We are fast becoming a nation transfixed by the term “racism.” The tactic of the radical left — liberal Democrats, Progressives, Socialists, and all of their sub-ideologues — is to label anyone racist who fails to, or refuses to, subscribe to their lockstep ideological beliefs, which is that government is the super authority over the political-social-economic agenda of our daily lives and individuals are only cogs in that machine mandated to do the bidding of a select elite of rulers..
By labeling someone racist, the left neutralizes opposition to their goals. Being accused of racism in the United States conjures up the specter of a collective national guilt among whites over the history of slavery, a guilt inculcated into generations of school children by the very same left that burrowed into academia in the latter half of the 20th Century with a goal of supplanting capitalism with socialism-communism and weaving political correctness into law..
We only need to observe the tactics of the Four Jennies of Doom — Democrat Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley, and Ilhan Omar — to understand the strategy. All statements, words, utterances that do not correspond to the politically-correct requirements of the Left are considered racist.
Thus, when President Donald Trump — he is the principal individual fixated in the politically correct gunsights of the radical Left — criticizes anyone for any number of activities, such as infanticide, environmental delusion, political beliefs, or open borders, he is considered a racist. In particular, Trump is deemed racist for criticizing the four Jennies because they are colored people, even though color has nothing to do with the accusations.
In that way, the label of racism becomes deeply embedded in the nation’s consciousness and the target of the epithet becomes a social outcast undeserving of any social graces and deprived of anything other than basic human sustenance.
That is the thrust of the Left and the point we have reached in the growth of the USA.
