‘False narrative links racism and GOP’

J. Peder Zane writes in today’s News & Observer:

Why do Democrats relentlessly accuse President Trump of being a racist?

For the same reason dogs bark, ducks quack and little boys cry wolf – it’s what they do.

Before Trump, Democrats leveled the same despicable smear against Mitt Romney – Vice President Joe Biden warned African-Americans that Romney “would put y’all back in chains!”

They launched similar attacks against John McCain, whom Rep. John Lewis compared to George Wallace, and the Bushes. Back in 2000 the NAACP ran an ad blaming George the younger for the murder of James Byrd, an African-American chained to a truck and dragged to his death by white supremacists.

And so it goes with most every Republican back to Richard Nixon.

In case you’ve missed it, Democrats are continually doubling down and tripling down on racism, with some of them (The Squad) not realizing the corner you paint yourself in when everybody but you is racist. With that in mind, tonight Democratic presidential debate with Sleepy Joe and Kamala front and center wlll be most interesting.
