In addition to the sheer absurdity of the statement, it must be legitimately asked, why do leftists, liberals, and Democrats get away with such blatant and unfiltered bigotry and discrimination?
The answer is this: These are the real racists and bigots in the country, responsible for any racial divide. It is every person’s right to agree or disagree with a given political candidate. It is no one’s right to use prejudice, bigotry, and discrimination to do so. Racist ad hominem attacks implying that people of a certain race have no business holding unapproved opinions should have no place in the country’s political sphere. Logically analyze and criticize a candidate’s policies. Show why a certain candidate is inferior to another candidate. But don’t resort to blatant racism to attempt to sway public opinion.
