Let us take it as read that Trump is racist, and every Republican legislator is racist, and every Republican voter is racist. That's still not enough. Insufficiently Woke Democrats have to be racist, too.
The Trump of their fevers is a transphobe who wants to shove granny off a cliff, and that's who they're running against.
The Trump of their fevers is a transphobe who wants to shove granny off a cliff, and that’s who they’re running against.

A few months ago I observed to Tucker Carlson that the difference between “Bush Derangement Syndrome” and “Trump Derangement Syndrome” was that the former was largely contained to a visceral loathing for the President himself, whereas the latter has been extended to anyone who voted for him – ie, the half of the electorate comprised of “racists”, “fascists” and “white supremacists”. Now TDS rampages on, to consume half the Democrats, too.

Say what you like about Nancy Pelosi, but she took back the House by running the Dems as a “moderate” party that talked about things like voter concern over health care. A year on, and most of what the party’s presidential candidates are yakking about – busing, the needs of trans-African-Americans, open borders to all six-and-a-half billion Undocumented-Americans around the world – is bonkers. The Democrat platform is a twitchy reflex that, whatever Trump is for, they’re against. So he wakes up every morning, tweets his rubber hammer at their kneecaps, and they respond accordingly. He doesn’t even have to hold any particular position: The actual Trump is utterly indifferent on the matter of “gender fluidity” and, from his experience as a businessman in Canada and Scotland, is not ill-disposed toward socialized health care. But the Trump of their fevers is a transphobe who wants to shove granny off a cliff, and that’s who they’re running against.

So the party of Big Government will no longer cooperate with the biggest government of all. Behold Eric Garcetti, mayor of a city the middle class is fleeing, where less and less works, where traffic is at a standstill, and you can’t get out and walk because the sidewalks are full of tent cities, human feces and flesh-eating viruses. And his priority is non-cooperation with ICE. And notice his artful pitch: Democrats have long abolished the distinction between “immigrants” and the millions who just walked into the country, which is why the Mayor sells his position to “Angelenos” as simply that of being a “good neighbor”. Are Mexico and Guatemala “good neighbors” to the United States? Does a “good neighbor” just move into the house next door and then demand you support him in his lawlessness?

The entire “Social Justice” movement is a repudiation of Martin Luther King’s dream. You are NEVER judged on your character or demeanor, but exclusive on race, gender, religion, political belief and the “intersectionality” whatever next grievance group comes to prominence. Cultural Marxism: YOU do not exist; you are merely an extension or avatar of whatever oppressor or suppressed group to whom you belong. And, of course, it’s never your decision which group you belong to.

If that isn’t racist to the core, I don’t what is.

Probably an irrelevant observation on my part … but why are AOC and her colleague Rashida Tlaib referred to as “women of colour”? Unless my failing eyesight is worse than I think it is … of the three women pictured in the photo above, AOC is the lightest-skinned. I even heard one of our current federal ministers, Maryam Monsef, once refer to herself as a “woman of colour”. I guess these women have repudiated Martin Luther King’s “I have a Dream” speech, where he said:
“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
