32% of Democrats Believe It's 'Racist' To Even Disagree with People of Color

Combined Shape

If I’ve written one thing on this site worth remembering it is this:

When members of the left don’t have a winning argument, they resort to identity politics and buzzwords.

It’s as certain as death and taxes.

The disease that elevates name-calling over substance and shade-throwing over policy discussions has infected the left so deeply that you cannot engage in a robust discussion with a political opponent if that political opponent is a person of color — unless you don’t care about being labeled a bigot, a racist, or a xenophobe.

And that’s not me guessing.

That’s actually how a substantial portion of Democrats answered a question posed to them in a recent poll.

The poll asked Democrat respondents, “is it racist for a white politician to criticize the political views of a politician of color?”

Almost one out of three answered in the affirmative. Rasmussen reports that 32% of Democrats believe it is racist to dare disagree with a political opponent if that opponent has a different skin color.

That explains the insanity of the language we see being propagated across the media these days.

One cannot discuss the merits of border reform without being called a xenophobe by the left.

As soon as somebody attempts to discuss the science of whether life begins at conception, the left pounces and labels them a woman-hater and misogynist.

If you want to have a civil discussion to address issues surrounding prison reform, minimum wage, or even social media censorship, the left will crucify you as a racist.

Do you think Democrats use the race card to stifle debate?

One of the fundamental virtues of free speech is that intellectual diversity makes America a greater place. The politically correct culture of leftism punishes that same diversity.

The left wants to silence all detractors. It cannot let opposition stand. Because its ideas are inferior, the left embraces censorship, bans and name-calling to suppress or even eliminate the voices that dare question it.

Only the left would see silence-by-duress as a paradigm for freedom.

But do not let fear stop you.

Regardless of your opponent’s skin color, pay him the dignity of civility and truth. Do not hold back. Truth will prevail.

G.S. Hair is the former executive editor of The Western Journal and vice president of digital content of Liftable Media.

After graduating law school from the Cecil C. Humphries School of Law, Mr. Hair spent a decade as an attorney practicing at the trial and appellate level in Arkansas and Tennessee. He represented clients in civil litigation, contractual disputes, criminal defense and domestic matters. He spent a significant amount of time representing indigent clients who could not afford private counsel in civil or criminal matters. A desire for justice and fairness was a driving force in Mr. Hair's philosophy of representation. Inspired by Christ’s role as an advocate on our behalf before God, he often represented clients who had no one else to fight on their behalf.

Mr. Hair has been a consultant for Republican political candidates and has crafted grassroots campaign strategies to help mobilize voters in staunchly Democrat regions of the Eastern United States.

In early 2015, he began writing for Conservative Tribune. After the site was acquired by Liftable Media, he shut down his law practice, moved to Arizona and transitioned into the position of site director. He then transitioned to vice president of content. In 2018, after Liftable Media folded all its brands into The Western Journal, he was named executive editor. His mission is to advance conservative principles and be a positive and truthful voice in the media.
