Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, November 22, 2021

In Louisiana, law enforcement agencies have been accused of targeting Hispanic drivers in traffic stops and identifying them as white on tickets. Misidentification makes it impossible to track racial bias, experts say.

Is this the thread where the right wing geniuses will once again tell us that 'White Privilege' does not really exist? I still am blown away by the stupidity and/or dishonesty of anyone who tries to make that claim.

Reminds me of the section of the book The Lathe of Heaven by Ursula LeGuin where the main character makes everybody in the world the same skin color to solve the issue of inter-racial strife.

Nothing gets right-wingers leveling accusations of racism more than the chance to conflate personal bigotry with systemic racism.

About the only time you'll ever hear them say an institution is racist... is when it's Harvard putting a quota on Jews and Asians.

Tell me if this is correct:
Harriet Beecher Stowe is racist, because she created the literary character Uncle Tom.

Or is she not racist, but anyone who makes an allusion to Uncle Tom becomes racist, by citing a non-racist work.

I'm not sure about these racist attacks.
I mean, if you are referring to bigoted comments, sure.

But to cry "racism!" would require these black conservatives being frozen out of mainstream society for their political views.
Hey look, there's black Supreme Court Justice and Coca-Cola Enthusiast Clarence Thomas. He sure seems the opposite of frozen out of mainstream society for his politics.

Only if you're desperate to find a "you're racist too!" argument.

Anyone with a brain knows the attack would be over their political position not their skin color.

There are certain skin colors that make certain political positions more ridiculous, like a black person who supports a white supremacist party, but insulting that person is an attack on their stupidity, not their race.

Well if they're being attacked for their statements and thinking then that's not racism. It's anti stupidism.

Racism is unfair because you are attacking someone over how they are born, something they can't change.

You COULD leave your cult and learn reality and no longer be a moron. A black person can't leave their race.

The attack is their skin color because of their political position. From the left, black people are expected to be 100% liberal/Democrat and any time one strays they are branded as a race-traitor. In the nastiest terms possible.

The attack is because they joined the cult of a fascist con man, no matter what race they are.

Some races will suffer more if that fascist cult gets their way, so some races are dumber for supporting that cult.

It's not racist to say a black person is dumb for supporting trump. It's racist to say they're dumb because they're black. One is insulting how they're born, one is insulting what they choose to do. Is that simple enough for you stupid?

Racism is more like "Hey this district is full of black people, lets reduce the number of voting places so they have to wait in line a long time, and redraw their district lines so they'll have no power in local politics."

I don't know how old you are, boy but I'll be you aren't aware that what you're accusing Trump of is no different that what every GOP president has been labeled with since Reagan.

The Southern Strategy preceded Reagan but it really started with regards to him in 1980...and it's never changed.

It fades in the rear view mirror but it was always there....and it will fade with Trump....eventually.

You're that young.

I remember the same versions of youth like yourself when Reagan was President. Then GWB.....that was something.

Racist, rapists, mean-spirited, pushing grannies over cliffs, starving children, hates the poor, handicap...and the gays. Traitorous and treasonous criminals...all of them.

Of course the heat has been turned up by Trump but the present day always feels like it's hotter than before. It's normal

But there is literally nothing Trump is being accused of that wasn't thrown at GWB, his dad, nor Reagan.

Nothing in terms of the seriousness of the charge.

Really? I don't seem to remember HW Bush claiming the election was a fraud when he lost, mounting a violent insurrection to stop the election, and then launching a propaganda war against democracy itself in a nationwide attempt to replace it with fascism, and installing cult members into election jobs who would rig the next election for him.

But I'm so young and dumb maybe that happened and I just don't remember it. Could you provide a link to those stories?

HW is treated with the least amount of vitriol probably because he was a 1-termer.

But that Iran Contra thing earned him the gas chamber. The rape club he was accused of being a member of...and the nasty society he was a member of at Yale.

What "list?"

Your case for HW bush being just as controversial as trump was his college secret society and iran contra. Plus "other dastardly deeds" which as as much credibility as trump saying "lots of evidence. Piles. Giant mountains of evidence....people are saying..."

HW Bush wasn't as controversial as trump because he wasn't a white supremacist fascist like trump. He wasn't a horrible example for the nation's children like trump. He didn't ---- porn stars without a condom while his wife was nursing his newborn like trump. He didn't collude with enemy nations to get elected like trump. He didn't get half a million americans killed with lies and incompetence like trump. He didn't destroy the concept of facts like trump, and turn every bad fact into "fake news" like trump.

Trump was inevitable with the way rupert murdoch, the nra, and rush limbaugh pushed your party for years, but none of you had the brains, courage, or patriotism to push back. So you ended up with trump. Cant wait to see what you fascist lunatics do next. 1/6 didn't make you regain your sanity, so obviously nothing will.

So predictable.

Start losing an argument, then the insults start. Acting superior while demonstrating the intellectual inability to argue your position. Then you'll switch to feminine insults since you think those are worse. Then you start begging for personal info about my life so you can memorize them and try and find new personal attacks.

It's all because you say something you can't back up, and you start flailing. It's always your own fault that you get pinned into corners like this. Today it was because you took the moronic position that the republican party wasn't any better before trump. No one made you take that obviously stupid and wrong position. You have no one to be angry at but yourself. So flail away.
