Trump, racism & the shrinking GOP tent.

This has been irking me for weeks now.
Actually, that word is not even strong enough, it’s really been pissing me off!!
In fact, if it were not for the fact that it’s Sunday, I’d probably use an even stronger word.
What is this ‘this’ that has so annoyed me?
Annoyed me to the point where I’m seriously considering not even voting!?
[..because voting for the current day Democrats is a complete non starter!]
It’s this baseless, ignorant charge of racism being used by CONSERVATIVES to take down someone they don’t like, & for damn sure, don’t personally know.
What makes me so angry is a multitude of things.
The first one, is that THIS is the same bullsh*t tactic the left has been using for decades which conservatives so rightfully complain about!
‘They don’t know me, so how can they call me a racist!?’
‘I’m not a racist, I just disagree with that person!’
‘Just because some conservative is racist, doesn’t make ME a racist!’
Welllll, with just a few word changes, we have the SAME argument that can be made in defense of Trump!
Yet these hypocritical jackasses [my insult, bad language count is rising when I swore I wouldn’t!] are doing the same thing simply because they want to stop Donald Trump.
‘..but Trump would be bad for America!’ is the normal tired, weak, pathetic, morally convenient excuse I get.
To me, it sounds like THEY are the real people who are bad for America.
The other thing that REALLY makes my anger rise is that *most* of the conservatives leveling this VERY SERIOUS charge are white.
No offense, but many of them have no idea what REAL racism feels like!
Many of these people have NEVER been in a place where they were the only person of their race, felt very unwelcomed, been threatened, called highly charged names, pulled over for being in the wrong neighborhood, driving ‘too nice of a car’, etc etc.
I’m not talking about ‘that one time, when…’, no, I’m talking about experiences you’ve had for years, decades, since you can remember.
Now, the black conservatives who use this charge annoy me too, only slightly less.
In my opinion, they’re weak.
Since when did WORDS, online, from some clown hurt?
Hell, I’ve had to hold my temper when someone from a visiting college (Texas aTm … which is why I STILL don’t like that school/town!) called me a ‘NIGGER!’ to my face, sooo I’m pretty sure some online buffoon isn’t gonna get me upset in the slightest.
Also, I’m pretty sure all those lynched, burned, bitten & hosed black people from generations past would have loved to have just been attacked by words from some online coward.

So, next time you conservatives go around labeling someone a racist, you should actually get some PROOF that the person is such a heinous being.
