Liberals habitually call just about everything racist these days except for each other and with the hyper-sensitivity on college campuses and the demands for all white liberals to be guilt-ridden over their imaginary privilege, even that’s not a rock-solid defense anymore.
If everybody and everything is racist, then how do you define racism? If the KKK = Redskins fans = Donald Trump = people who believe in a colorblind world = Nazis = people that opposed Obamacare = anyone who flies a Gadsden flag — the word racism is meaningless.
Of course, racism does have a meaning outside of the “everything I don’t like is racist” way liberals define it. Per the Oxford dictionary, it’s “prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one’s own race is superior.”
With that in mind, let’s shine a spotlight on some of the nearly unlimited numbers of things liberals have taken to falsely calling racism in recent years:
1) The A-OK Sign: As a prank, 4Chan decided to claim that the A-OK symbol was racist. Liberals being liberals, humorlessly started accusing everyone using the OK symbol of being racist. Obviously, this was HILARIOUS, so people across the political spectrum started flashing the OK symbol to tweak them. It became so popular that even a few white supremacists got in on the act, which in the mind of liberals, justified their hysterical overreaction in the first place. Obviously, this is ludicrous. Keep on making the A-OK sign and laughing at the people with sticks up their behinds that claim it’s a racist symbol.
2) Voter ID: This may be the most bizarre one on the list not just because you need ID to do everything from renting an apartment, to getting on a plane, to buying alcohol, but because the argument is that black Americans are so poor/ignorant that they can’t possibly manage to get an ID. This argument is never made about Jews, Hispanics, whites or Indians, it’s always made about black Americans. I’m not sure why white liberals have concluded that black Americans are so uniquely stupid/incompetent that they can’t manage to get an ID, but it seems pretty insulting. Last but not least, it’s worth noting that we are talking mostly about white liberals here because 77% of non-white voters support voter ID.
