(Liberty Bell) – You know, everything these days, according to the radical left, is racist. Therefore, nothing is racist. Everything cannot simply be racist because then the word is completely devoid of its meaning. This is something the progressive movement today does not seem to grasp. They like the notion of words having a fluid meaning, believing that terms can hold the same power no matter how ill-used they are.
That’s not how reality works. When you misapply a term like “racist” over and over again, it results in that term losing its actual, legitimate meaning. Folks tend to start ignoring it when they hear it, which isn’t a good thing at all.
Hence, why calling someone a “racist” in 2020 doesn’t really seem to be an insult that has much of a sting to it. Most folks shrug it off, taking it to mean that whatever said person must have expressed was not what the other individual believed to be true, therefore, said person was called a pointless name.
A great example is the continual tossing around of the word “racist” in regard to President Trump.
Joe Biden, the current Democratic presidential nominee, recently attacked the president by calling him the first “racist” president. Katrina Pierson, a senior advisers for Trump’s current campaign, completely annihilated him for this statement.
Here’s more from BizPacReview:
Pierson reminded “You Ain’t Black” Biden that he’s in no position to lecture anyone about racial justice, given his decades-long history of racist slurs and anti-black policies.
In a scathing statement, Pierson said Biden is hoping black voters will forget his extensive history of racist gaffes and the fact that he was close friends with former KKK bigwig Robert Byrd, a Democrat senator for 51 years.
Pierson — who is black — remarked: This is an insult to the intelligence of Black voters and is really rich coming from a guy who proudly:
- Befriended segregationists
- Touted an award from George Wallace
- Honored a former Exalted Cyclops of the Ku Klux Klan
- Worried his kids would grow up in a ‘racial jungle’
- Marveled that Barack Obama was ‘articulate’ and ‘clean’
- Bragged about being from a slave state, and
- Repeatedly used the N-word.
Pierson added: “President Trump loves all people, works hard to empower all Americans, and is supported by more Black voters than any Republican presidential candidate in modern history. No one should take lectures on racial justice from Joe Biden.”
So much brutal carnage in those statements, as Pierson wields the sword of truth like a warrior princess destined to shred all enemies who get in her way. It’s pure poetry.
Biden is a man who has quite a history of standing up for racist principles and policies in his past as we can clearly see, which definitely strips him of any right to lecture folks on who is and isn’t racist. Add to this the fact that Biden also has a well known reputation for being a little “handsy” with his lady friends and you have plenty of reasons, aside from his bad policies, to not vote for him in November.
The brouhaha erupted after Biden said this during a virtual town hall from his basement:
“The way [Trump] deals with people based on the color of their skin, their national origin, where they’re from, is absolutely sickening. No sitting president has ever done this. Never, never, never. No Republican president has done this. No Democratic president.
Biden says Trump is America’s first racist president: “We’ve had racists, and they’ve existed, they’ve tried to get elected president. He’s the first one that has.”

For the record, the United States has had presidents who were openly racist — much more so than Biden falsely claims President Trump is.
- 12 presidents owned slaves, including Andrew Johnson, a Democrat who was virulently racist against blacks.
- From 1942 to 1945, Democrat president Franklin Roosevelt imprisoned Japanese-Americans in internment camps.
- For decades, the Democrat Party supported the Ku Klux Klan and opposed desegregation.
Then there’s Democrat Woodrow Wilson.
12 presidents owned slaves. Andrew Jackson’s political movement was based on the westward spread of white supremacy over the continent. Woodrow Wilson segregated the executive branch and blurbed Birth of a Nation. https://t.co/8qYteliscD

Setting aside the presidents who owned slaves and presided over segregation, Woodrow Wilson *resegregated* federal agencies in the 20th century. https://t.co/51RxSrh8kU

In May, Biden ignited volcanic backlash when he arrogantly told black Americans that “You Ain’t Black!” if you don’t vote for him.
Black commentators said Biden’s entitled statements underscore that Democrats think they own the black vote. Biden’s laughable use of ebonics was also dripping with racist condescension.
In June, street preacher Bevelyn Beatty trashed Joe Biden as a racist and said “Democrats hate black people.”
“These Democrats…they hate black people!” Beatty said. “These are the same people who fought to keep slavery in. These are the same people who built the KKK. The Republican Party is the party of the blacks.”
Guys, there are plenty of reasons that Biden shouldn’t be president, as noted above, but the fact that he is lying about Trump being racist and has a history of racism himself, it’s safe to say this isn’t the man for the White House. The last thing we need is someone like him increasing the tension between folks based on color, as we know already that it is at a boiling point.
Trump hasn’t done anything that is racist. He’s been fair and balanced during his time in office, working with black Americans to help further their communities and provide opportunities that the left was cheating them out of.
Let’s hope that kind of mentality spreads around.
