Politics is a messy, complicated business. So thank goodness we’ve got the luminaries at Salon to put it all in such simple, straightforward perspective:
Republicans will never say that racism is "racism." Basically it's because they're racist https://t.co/hZ5V1sCaJK

Why didn’t we think of that?
This is a real headline. https://t.co/OefY2zL37x

And this is a real take. Amanda Marcotte (because of course it’s Amanda Marcotte) concludes:
Trump’s opponents need to understand what they’re up against. This is not a matter of a bunch of confused or stupid people who are bamboozled by Trump and can be gently educated into being better people. (Of course there are a few conservatives at the margins who feel qualms about Trump, and they can be appealed to.) For the most part, these are hardened bigots who love what Trump is doing and cannot be shamed or browbeaten out of it. The only realistic option is for the left to out-organize the right and make sure that the majority of Americans, who reject Trump’s agenda, show up to the polls to stop him.
So generous of her to acknowledge that there are “a few conservatives” who can be saved from a life of being racist.
Or maybe they aren’t racist

Oh nice. Lefties frivolously throwing around charges of racism. What an interesting and unique development.

Who could’ve seen it coming?
Yea, how dare they not think everything is racist? That must mean they are racist, and not that they aren’t looking for racism around every corner! Great reporting Salon!! ??

Salon’s known for their top-quality journalism:
Still trying to convince people pedophilia is normal?
— Rick Swift (now on Parler) (@rickswift) July 17, 2019
Shouldn't you be advocating pedophilia again or something?
— Physics Geek (@physicsgeek) July 17, 2019
I always take moral direction from magazines that advocate for paedophilia. Its the smart thing to do.

Salon’s got a real knack for getting trampled by their high horse.
This is how ridiculous the left has become. https://t.co/g3wyTUsdhK

Is this really the game they want to play? Because two can play it.
Democrats will never say that anti semitism is "anti semitism". Basically it's because they're anti semites.
This game is fun.

Salon will never say that they suck. Basically it’s because they suck.
