"Make America Great Again" Is Not Racist

   Not the Big Dog too...
   Jesus, it's like liberals just can't go five minutes without making up some fake charge of racism.
   There is absolutely nothing about "make America great again" that entails or suggests racism. It's a fairly standard kind of gesture at the supposed greatness of the past, and it's also an anti-Obama anti-Democrat thing. It's a way of feigning a positive message but really bashing Obama. The real message is: America sucks now, and its Obama's fault. But: not every criticism of Obama is racist.
   This has become a real embarrassment for liberals. For years conservatives have accused them of playing the race card at the drop of a hat...but IMHO that has rarely been true. It tends to become true when the PC left rears its ugly head and drags liberalism in that direction, as it has over the last couple of years.
   Irresponsible accusations of racism are morally wrong. They also fan the flames on the right...but, as bad as that is, it's of secondary importance. Liberals just have to stop it with this bullshit.

I would guess Bill Clinton knows full well it's not racist. This is a cold political move to keep up the pressure. Many have commented (in media and the blogs) that Trump goes out of his way to try to alleviate the concerns of minorities (his 'outreach' to the Africa American Community) but what he's really doing is telling everyone it's okay, you're not racist if you vote for him.

I hope that made sense, I'm a bit brain dead after four classes.

The Trump camp is saying "you're not racist if you vote for us", while the Big Dog is insinuating "Yes, you are". Trying to peel off independents?

Damn, made perfect sense.

Very interesting, too.

I never think like's an important kind of thought about politics.

It's wrong, though, right? What Clinton is doing? You can't say stuff like that if it isn't true...

Yes, I think it's wrong. You should not say things if it isn't true and you know it isn't true. But the reality is this type of stuff happens all the time and I would say Trump's bullshitting is far worse than a calculated lie. I just wish it would all stop.

Yeah, I feel ya.

OTOH, I expect better from our side. In a way, I don't blame Trump. He knows not what he does...

And I understand the inclination to fight fire with fire.
