Patriotism versus Racism in the 2020 Elections

USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Who are the real American patriots? Who are the real racists?

These two questions will play a big role in the 2020 election.

The Left is desperate to turn any traditional patriotic appeal into an act of racism. The Left is desperate to smear Republicans and moderate Democrats as racists.

This past week, between Sunday and Tuesday, CNN and MSNBC used the word “racist” more than 1,100 times.

Part of this desperation is in the Left’s inability to debate the facts and their hope that strong smears can shame their opponents out of broaching the argument.

Part of this desperation is in the Left’s growing realization that President Trump and the Republicans are beginning to attract minority support in a serious way.

The 2018 election was a watershed in the shift of minority voters toward Republicans.

Consider the example of the very left-wing African American female candidate for governor in Georgia. She alienated enough African American males with her radicalized platforms that the Republican candidate got a significant percentage of African American male votes.

In Florida, a left-wing African American candidate for governor lost almost one out of five African American female votes because of his opposition to school choice.

John James for the Senate in Michigan
Vote John James for the Senate in Michigan

In Michigan, a charismatic Republican African American veteran and businessman,John James, received more votes for the Senate in Michigan than any Republican since the year 2000. James is running again, and if he wins, the historic monopoly that the Left has on the African American vote will collapse.

All around the country, President Trump is attracting Latinos to his rallies in record numbers. There is strong support in the Latino community for job creation, income growth, small business prosperity, and enforcing the law.

The Left’s reaction to these threats has been hysteria. Screaming “racist” – which the left-wing propaganda machine did relentlessly this week – is their most common effort to shut up conservatives in general and President Trump in particular.

Defending the flag is racist in this left-wing world. Defending George Washington and Thomas Jefferson is racist according to the Left. Again and again they seek to shame today’s patriots into silence.

Yet the real racists are on the Left.

Consider Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley saying, “We don’t need any more brown faces that don’t want to be a brown voice. We don’t need black faces that don’t want to be a black voice. We don’t need Muslims that don’t want to be a Muslim voice. We don’t need queers that don’t want to be a queer voice.”

Consider both the racism and the fascist arrogance in that statement.

  • First, Pressley asserts the right to define the authenticity of voices.
  • Second, she defines each voice by skin color, religion, or sexual orientation rather than the content of their character.
  • Third, she dismisses or dehumanizes everyone who fails to meet her standard.

Consider her arrogance just in regard to the African American community. By her standard, Secretary Colin Powell isn't authentically black. Neither is Secretary Condoleezza Rice, Secretary Ben Carson, Justice Clarence Thomas, Senator Tim Scott, or senatorial candidate John James.

You can go through each of Pressley’s defined subgroups and find people who deeply disagree with her.

One of the keys to the 2020 campaign will be who the American people conclude are authentically patriotic and what views are actually racist. President Trump and Republicans will be defined as genuinely patriotic. The Left will grow hysterical as it loses its ability to dominate the public narrative with name calling.

The election of 2020 will be one of the most defining elections in American history.

If the Left succeeds in making its “racist” charge stick, it could seal off minority voters from even considering voting for President Trump and other candidates on the Republican ticket.

On the other hand, if Republicans successfully answer the racist attack and then prove that the Democrats have become the party of radical proposals that would destroy America as we know it, then the Democrats could find themselves losing everywhere except on college campuses and in some radical neighborhoods.

Patriotism and racism will be key arguments over the next 15 months.

Your Friend,
Newt

    This group acts like they are still in high school, not in the business of making laws for the most powerful country in the world. They have no business calling our rightfully elected president names or berating him as they are. About the only proper action that could be done at this time would to be to force their resignation and shame them for what they have run their mouths about. They have no right to do what they have done. The president, and we know he won’t back down from a fight, has the new nickname of racist plastered… Read more »

    Knowing that I’m a conservative as well as a Trump supporter, a black coworker, in front of others, asked if I had burned any crosses lately. Rather than explode and rightly knock him on his ass, I calmly explained that I was a registered Republican, not a Democrat. While there some loons on the right, the vast amount of racial animus is promulgated by Democrats. If you’re in the Klan, I guarantee that you have a D behind your name. Equal, voting and civil rights have always been championed by the Republicans while being opposed by the Democratic party. Told… Read more »

    Democrats are like locust, they destroy everything in their path and then blame the very victims they claim to help. Calling someone a racist doesn’t make it so but what if they were? Then what? Conversely, what if they aren’t? The fact that these morons keep using the same message is proof: If they truly had dirt on someone they’d use it. Name calling shows how truly shallow these people are and true Americans have gotten the message.

    Those on the left and vote left are nothing more or less than political pawns for an agenda bigger than they think. Nothing but pawns, and they play their parts well, as far as being pawns goes.
    Once the global elite get what they want the pawns will be cast into the gutter and forgotten. These four will just be back where they came from.

    @Vern, Good observations. We also have rinos in sheep’s clothing, too. This just in: The launch of a “republican” political challenger in NY-14 to challenge Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Sherie Murray, follows a very familiar political ploy…. A fake candidate intended to protect AOC in 2020. In June of 2018 Sherie Murray was an avid AOC supporter. In the last 36 hours you may have seen “republican” candidate Sherie Murray promoted, seemingly out of nowhere, by a variety of media platforms (social media and traditional). However, when there is an obviously coordinated effort to push a rapid high visibility roll-out; and that… Read more »

    These four bimbos should live up to their oath or go back where they came from. If from Somalia–get there , if Illinois–get there, if new York– get there. There is absolutely nothing raciest in my statement. Do what your oath says you should do! Socialism has failed in every nation who was foolish enough to try it. Before it bankrupted each nation, communism demanded that all the subjects turn in their weapons. This is not done for the subject’s betterment, it is done so the subjects have no means of changing out a bad, corrupt government for a righteous… Read more »

    These four scumbags just say what Americans already know. They expect to be agreed with or you’re a racist. Just like most blacks expect the same. Spineless Republicans will debate anyone who is white,but if you are black,brown they will either remain silent or shower will false praise,adulation,because they don’t want to be called a racist. They want to be treated equally ? Really ? How many Republicans called out the African born Muslim during his treasonous years ? I didn’t happen because Obama is black,period ! As long as whites and politicians continue to mollycoddle this racism crap will… Read more »

    The Squad of Four as these four are known should be unseated from office for what they have said about this country. They are not elected to do what a person elected to the one of the highest political office of this country would do. They are against what this country stands for. I read recently where a person in AOC’s district wants to un seat her. I don’t that person’s background or stance on issues, which wasn’t mentioned in the article. The Squad of Four needs to be removed. if they think that socialism, communism or anything else resembling… Read more »

    We are so fortunate that the Commie Squad were not in office during the 30’s and 40’s instead of now. They certainly would have taken great pleasure in hindering our government trying to stop Fritz Kuhn and his American Nazi Bund. They probably would have said that Kuhn was being persecuted . They certainly would have fought to free all of the Nazi spies that were arrested . Team them along with Harris , Warren , Sanders , to name a few . They are Communists and proud of it . How do they think their beloved Josef Stalin would… Read more »

    I don’t think these four c*nts want to know how Stalin would had treated them. It sure as hell wouldn’t had been with respect and dignity. They would had been around Sunday and gone Monday !

    I haven’t the time nor patience to argue with the Communist Left,nor the Communist squad. None of the mentioned things are racist .The USA is not a democracy but rather a republic and also not a socialist/Communist union.
