Here is a good question. Who said “If they can falsely portray me as a traitor then they can do it to anyone. You stand up against Hillary they will destroy you and discredit your message.”?
For years the left has been calling everything conservative a racist. Their other favorite go-to slur is calling everything conservative misogynistic and sexist. It did not take Democrats long to have it all backfire on them. We can all remember the multitude of big-name left elites in the Democratic Party falling into these categories, not simply by accusation but in reality.
Just off the top of my head on leftist sexual scandals, there was JFK, Lyndon Johnson, Bill Clinton, Gary Hart, Barney Frank, Gary Condit, Strom Thurmond, John Edwards, Anthony Weiner, Al Franken, John Conyers, Matt Lauer, Charlie Rose, Oliver Stone, Richard Dreyfuss, Louis C.K., Kevin Spacey, and of course we cannot forget Harvey Weinstein. Don’t even get me started on blackface! Why are they all liberals and Democrats? Maybe because the KKK were Democrats?
I’m not saying that Republicans or conservatives have no sexual scandals or involvement with racism. They have plenty of them. What I am saying is if Democrats continue down this road it will eventually come back to bite them in the ass, and it has.
So what is the New Racism? Of course, it is “Russian Asset” or “Putin Puppet”! Hillary Clinton saying that Jill Stein and fellow veteran Tulsi Gabbard are Russian Assets only deepens the disdain we feel for her and by extension the Democratic Party as a whole. It is now not simply a charge levied against Republicans and conservatives but against their own. Three years of calling Trump a Russian Asset wasted millions of dollars and an unknown amount of angst for some Americans. It is all phony.
Thinking people have to wonder why Hillary hasn’t brought that charge against Bernie Sanders. Bernie is the only candidate running for President that honeymooned in the Soviet Union (now Russia for you younger folks.) If anyone is a Russian Asset it would have to be Bernie. However, even I do not believe that. He may be a Socialist and failure at simple mathematics but not a Russian Asset.
I do not align with Tulsi Gabbard or Jill Stein on their policy issues. However, Tulsi strikes me as sincere in her beliefs, unlike most politicians.
So, who said “If they can falsely portray me as a traitor then they can do it to anyone. You stand up against Hillary they will destroy you and discredit your message.”? You guessed it. Tulsi Gabbard. Send that quote without this article to your liberal friends and I bet most say, Donald Trump. Proving once again the point made in the previous post on confirmation bias.
Racist, Misogynist or Russian Asset? How about we pretend to agree we are all these things and move on to the real issues! It seems to be the only way to remove their power.
