the left is never racist, right?

Jon Miller is a black conservative, and like so many black conservatives, he has to put up with a ton of racist shit that spews from the left. Not only does he get the standard "nigger" and "Uncle Tom" slurs, but he also has to endure the subtextual racism that comes from the assumption that black people can't be conservative. I've subscribed to Miller's YouTube channel; he's yet another branch in the ever-ramifying tree that is the alt-media, and I wish him well. Here he is reading some of the hate mail he's recently gotten:

In Trump World, racism only exists when somebody disagrees with a black conservative.

That's all the left has is racism. Oh wait, maybe that's just my white privilege talking, let me check.

Oh, I don't know, Tony. I think that, for the inhabitants of Trump World, racism from the left exists in a much broader context than just that.

But I assume your use of the term "Trump World" implies that conservatives are somehow just hallucinating racism on the left. Maybe you should actually watch the video, then tell me whether all of that vitriol is a hallucination. And, while you're at it, look at how the left treats Antonia Okafor and Candace Owens.

If you've read my blog for any length of time, you know I've held the right's feet to the fire on this issue as well: I've commented several times on the rightie filth emanating from Gab, the site to which I switched after leaving Twitter. My point, in this particular post, is to criticize the left for its hypocrisy: it often tries to paint itself as the side calling for compassion, civility, and an end to bigotry. In truth, it's just as mud-covered as the other side of the aisle. Acknowledge that, and maybe a discussion can get somewhere.

Today, I was bombarded with NBC's breaking news that the dow was down 300 points, yet it finished above 260 points at the closing bell, and that 47% of the American public blames Trump for the government shutdown. It's rather sad that they aren't saying 53% of Americans don't agree with the biased hatred for the President that the supposed mainstream media is selling day after day. Instead, it's all wishful doom and gloom fear mongering about the President and his policies.

John from Daejeon,

I just saw this on Instapundit:

“I’ll just add that I can barely read the news these days (and I absolutely cannot watch it on TV). The negativity toward Trump is so relentless, cluttering up everything. It’s crying wolf times a thousand. If anything is worth taking seriously, I’m afraid I won’t be able to notice.”
