Just Plain Racist

In response to ...


Race is not a scientific concept. It is just something we made up.
We lived in the most racially harmonious period of our history. That was about 10 years ago. We elected a black President and people didn't care about race. Since then, the left has tried to call almost everyone racist and tell people that they are victims who are defined by their "race". Some school children in my state were taught that "chess" is racist because White moves first. (I am an Expert rated chess player.) The left has accused almost every Republican of being a racist, but nothing could be further from the truth. The Republicans don't care diddly squat about race. They tried separately to convince Collin Powell and Condoleeza Rice to run for President. And the Tea Party is not, as is sometimes defined on this channel, a bunch of extreme redneck alt-right racists. The Tea Party was a response to excessive government spending. The Tea Party's favorite candidate (and mine) was Herman Cain. Instead, it is the political left that is constantly trying to divide and define people by race. 

To show how the left distorts things, they have called both Ben Shapiro and Dennis Prager, both Jewish men, nazis. 

This channel tried to claim that southern racists switched over to the Republican party and that standard Republican limited government positions are dog whistles for racism. This is an appalling incorrect bias and insulting to all the non-racists who believe in the Republican platform. What few members of racists groups that are left in this country, even if on the Republican side, are in the extreme fringe that nobody likes. 

Donald Trump is frequently misinterpreted, often by people who find it convenient to misinterpret Trump. They always talk about Charlottesville. When the protest started, the news reported that the protest consisted of some protestors plus White Supremacists. President Trump opposed taking down the statues for the same reason I did, which is that you should not try to erase your history. (However, the video makes a good point about this.) When he said that there were good people on both sides, I thought that this was correct because this is what I heard in the news. Trump went on to clarify his remarks to say that he wasn't talking about the White Supremacists and that those were bad people.  

Seriously, you should know better.

Best wishes,

John Coffey
