Even worse, the Hartford Courant is also claiming that “you can’t support Trump without supporting the racism that forms the bedrock of his political persona.”
The Blaze Alas, moving on from their misleading portrait of Trump as a bonafide racist, the Hartford Courant editors insisted that all those who support him are racists, too.
“Politics is always about compromise,” they acknowledged. “But Trump’s racism isn’t the same, not even close.”
“The difference now, in 2020, is that Donald Trump doesn’t just exploit racism, he revels in it,” they claimed. “Trump wears his whiteness like a badge of honor and plays his affinity for groups like the Proud Boys and other agents of racial hatred for applause. Trump doesn’t simply mine the racial divide for political advantage, he treats it like a worldview to be celebrated and adored.”
As such, whoever votes for Trump is not an innocent party but a guilty participant in the proliferation of racist practices.
“You can’t support Trump without supporting the racism that forms the bedrock of his political persona,” the editorial stated. “You may not think of yourself as promoting racism if you vote for Trump, but you are giving comfort and aid to the hateful among us.”
Bet you didn’t know that, Trump supporters. You’ll likely change your vote now.
Bet you won’t.
