Disagree With Me?? You’re A Racist

the-race-card

Yesterday I was engaged in a “discussion” with some folks on Facebook. Why I continue to do this is beyond me. As you can well imagine, the discussion drifted back to Obama and his policies and because I supported Trump and didn’t support Obama the race card came flying out and….You got it!!! I am a racist!

Whatever happened to just being able to disagree with your political opposites?

Playing the race card as soon as you say, “I disagree with you” is at the very least intellectually and morally dishonest.  It is the weakest response instead of actually debating your position on an issue. When you play the race card, you are saying that you have no legitimate argument.

You want to know why I didn’t like Obama? Because his progressive policies sucked. Not because he was black, but because his policies sucked. Do I need to spell that one out a little more? His policies were for shit.

So why do they keep playing it? Why can’t the left engage in an honest debate of ideas without immediately crawling into the gutter?

Here’s why. The overall tenet of the left is “Do as I say, not as I do” If you disagree with me, you are a racist. Bullshit. Come up with something new, like a real argument.

As always, if you are offended or don’t like what I have written, I don’t care.
