It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to grasp that the media’s relentless attacks at President Trump over supposed “racist” tweets aren’t actually aimed at him.
Even the dimwitted, ideologically-driven cranks on CNN know that the barrage of venom hurled at our President slides off of him like rain on a duck’s back.
Nothing they say, nothing they do throws him off course.
But he isn’t their target here.
These guys aren’t particularly original. Since 2015, the media have been using smears like “racist” and “Nazi” in order to intimidate us into abandoning Trump.
In short, it’s a voter intimidation campaign.
Democrats can’t win in the arena of ideas.
So the media hopes to put its thumb on the scale by intimidating Trump voters with accusations of racism.
Here’s how they think it will work: Relentlessly accuse Trump of being a frothing-at-the-mouth racist so that normal folks like you and I are too afraid to vote for him — for fear that we, too, will be labeled as racists.
We are the target of “racist” TweetGate, not Trump.
If you agree with or refuse to condemn racist Trump’s racist tweets you yourself are a racist.
It’s ham-handed to be sure and completely unoriginal. They did the same thing in 2016.
It didn’t work then and it won’t work now.
Last night on Anderson Cooper’s show, CNN’s Randi Kaye sat down with a group of Republican women and tried to badger them into denouncing the President and calling his tweets (and him) racist [hat tip the Daily Wire].
The women didn’t take the bait.
Not that Randi didn’t move heaven and earth to force the answer she wanted out of them. She gave it the old CNN try.
But they’ve overused this particular weapon in their quiver. The “Racist” smear now rolls off of us like rain on a duck’s back — just as it does Trump.
Well, I don’t know if they’ll ever stop using it. But it will stop working.
Democrats and MSM journos spent years calling everyone and everything they politically opposed “racist” and you’ll never guess what happened next https://t.co/Oy0ZxdHmmW— Will (@Oil_Guns_Merica) July 17, 2019
Notice how the Daily Beast words this tweet. “After his racist tweets” – as if it is universally accepted that what President Trump tweeted was solely prompted by the skin color of these four America-hating women.
But even that isn’t aimed at Trump; we are the target.
The subtext of this tweet is clear “Republicans support the President even more now that he’s ‘proved’ to be a racist. Ergo, Republican voters are racists too.”
The hope here is that swing voters will be intimidated enough by the “racist” label to avoid voting Republican in 2020. But not just swing voters; they hope it works on Republicans as well.
Agree with us that Trump is a racist or we’ll call you a racist too.
Vote the way we want or we’ll call you a racist.
Like I said, it’s ham-handed.
And what the idiots in the media fail to grasp is we don’t trust them enough to permit them to label us.
It’s Operation Backfire all over again.
They are pushing too hard and too far. It isn’t enough just to target Donald Trump. They also push it to the point where they target us.
And when you push too hard it backfires on you.
We will push back.
That Twitter poll is from a former Hillary campaign staffer. I did a screen capture because I’m thinking he’ll delete this.
We don’t like to be slandered and vilified. We’re ornery that way.
Of course it doesn’t help that the same media calling us racists are the ones running interference for the four Anti-American bigots from the House.
For the last several days, media outlets have defended them, shielded them and promoted them while vilifying the American people for supporting the President.
Rep. AOC thought her opponent was too white.— Alex Bruesewitz (@alexbruesewitz) July 17, 2019
Rep. Omar suggested Jews controlled the world.
Rep Tlaib believes Israel has no right to exist.
Rep. Pressley said the only legitimate black Americans are black liberals.
Please remind me who are the real racists and hateful ones?
And for some reason they really believe this time it’ll work.
What’s the definition of insanity — doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results?
Hillary Clinton lost 2016 when she decided to turn her vitriol away from Trump and target his supporters instead. What’s worse, the news media actually defended Hillary’s “Deplorable” comment. Remember?
Boy, did that backfire.
And yet the media is doing it all over again — defending the Anti-American bigots while smearing the American people as the racists.
This is going to backfire just as spectacularly as it did in 2016.
You don’t target the American people – unless of course you are the Enemy of the People.
We rally behind Trump because unlike these chuds, he doesn’t slander and smear us.
We rally behind Trump because he fights for us.
How do they not comprehend that?! This has been the case since 2015.
Doubling down on attacking us isn’t going to change that. It’s only going to strengthen our resolve.
If you come after the American people, you will only make President Trump — and the American people — more determined to fight back.
