One of the good things about living in this era is that racism is seen as one of the worst things you can call someone. I say this as someone born in 1953, a time if segregation, racism and bigotry were not just a badge of honor borne by some fringe wackos in the backwoods but was ingrained in the very fabric of law in some parts of the country. Racism is serious business and should nit be condoned or even tolerated in a heterogenous society such as ours. It will likely always exist but must always meet with universal condemnation no matter which side of the political aisle one is on.
More and more though it has been fashionable among the left to call anyone who disagrees with them a racist. It has long been a favorite tactic to cut off debate when an argument can’t be won. If you are a racist then nothing you have to say is worth listening to, a sentiment I agree with except that 99 percent of these accusations are simple character assassination. The more the accusations are made the more the term is cheapened and loses its teeth until real racism and real racists blend into the background with the falsely accused.
In an article on Fox News:
New York Post columnist Miranda Devine Friday blasted a columnist for The Washington Post, Marissa Brostoff, for accusing conservative J.D. Vance of being a “closet white supremacist” and linking the pro-life movement to white nationalism.
“If you’re a conservative, you’re automatically a racist,” Devine told “Fox & Friends.”
“[The left is] trying to demonize the pro-life movement and they are also trying to smear the entire conservative movement and, of course, any supporter of Donald Trump.”
Brostoff’s column, titled “How White Nationalists Aligned Themselves With The Anti-Abortion Movement”, argued pro-life conservatives oppose abortion because they fear it will accelerate the demographic “replacement” of white people by nonwhite immigrants, according to Devine.
Devine went on to say that “it makes no sense because black babies are aborted at five times the rate of white babies so how on Earth it could be a white nationalist thing to be against abortion.”
“The whole point about being against abortion is that you say every single life is equal and sacred. It’s not that white lives are better. I don’t know where this comes from, it’s insane,” she added.
Devine wrote a rebuttal op-ed aimed at Brostoff for using J.D. Vance as an example of white supremacist ideas being mainstream conservative thought.
