We’ve said it before but it bears repeating — notice how no one’s talking about the Mueller report anymore, or about the “concentration camps” along the southern border? It’s all white supremacy all the time now that the Russian collusion hoax has finally been put out of its misery. The Democrats and the mainstream media (same thing) need some angle of attack against President Trump, and they’ve decided white supremacy is going to be it.
A couple of weeks back we told you about D.C.-area therapists who were having a difficult time hearing their clients’ “Trump trauma” while trying to disguise and deal with their own Trump trauma. But now the shoe’s on the other foot, and Trump supporters are having “cultural anxiety” over being called racist all day, every day.
It’s expanded, of course. People who used to claim that Trump is racist are now claiming that all his supporters are racist. Gee, why would being called a racist make you angry if you really were a racist? It would seem more likely to upset you if the claim were false and slanderous.
For what it’s worth, The Washington Post has published its analysis of this phenomenon.

…in response to lies of white supremacy. The honest truth is the left is looking for a new hoax since their Russia collusion hoax collapsed.

Trump was unapologetic in stoking the fears of many white Americans when he launched his presidential campaign in 2016. In his opening campaign speech, he articulated his hard-line immigration ideas in response to fears about the impact of Mexican immigrants on America’s cultural fabric.
As a result, the neophyte politician rose to the top of the polls ahead of former governors, senators and other veteran politicos rather quickly. All of this led to claims of racism, largely from people of color on the left who saw a familiarity in Trump’s words — claims that were not boldly embraced by those on the left but that have since become more mainstream.
But fear of being accused of backing a white supremacist worldview caused many Trump fans to remain silent about their support for the real estate developer or to publicly express support for someone else while privately backing Trump.
Today, on the second anniversary of the Charlottesville violence that led the president to call neo-Nazis “very good people,” and as the president’s overall approval ratings remain relatively low, many of those who brought him to the dance appear to be dancing more closely than ever. And they are blaming their critics for their faithfulness to a man whom writer Ta-Nehisi Coates called “America’s first white president.”
Seriously, the president should follow Sarah Palin’s lead and sue newspapers that continue to push the myth that he called neo-Nazis in Charlottesville “very good people.” That’s been debunked so many times, even by CNN’s Jake Tapper, who obviously took the time to watch the video.
No, half of the “very fine people” Trump was referring to were those being called racist for believing Confederate statues and monuments should not be taken down or destroyed or covered with tarps.
This too is going to backfire when they overplay their hand, and they’re very close to doing that already.
Today I learned cultural anxiety is a real thing, but Trump Derangement syndrome is an imaginary condition.

1) Have always been highly amused at being labeled racist.
2) Have always found that those who do so are openly racist and/or bigoted themselves.
3) Find that this holds true across racial lines.

How dare you complain that we falsely labeled you racist. I guess we're supposed to pounce now.

The words and accusations from liberals means nothing to me. I've dealt with the libel and slander since I first voted for Reagan in 1980.

Hey WAPO we are over it. Lol, we learned in kindergarten that sticks and stones will break our bones but words will never harm me. Btw, this name calling started the first time I opposed Obama Care. When everything is racist nothing is racist.

The word has been devalued thanks to the left. It’s what happens when used incorrectly.

How are you still pushing the “very fine people” lie? Seriously? How many times does that have to be debunked? It’s on video FFS.
— Chad Dawkins (@chad_dawkins) August 12, 2019
It’s on video, the transcript is widely available online, these are supposed journalists — it’s almost as though watching the video would destroy their narrative they’ve worked so hard to build.
And here, one more time, is Carpe Donktum’s video on the subject … see if you can spot the racist:
The "Fine People" Hoax remains one of the most pervasive, yet easily debunked lies told every single day by politicians and pundits, and happily amplified by the MSM
