News That Should Shock Nobody

A majority of U.S. voters say President Trump has emboldened racists to express their beliefs openly, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll.

Fifty-five percent of voters said Trump has made it easier for those with racist beliefs to share those views publicly. Thirty-nine percent disagreed.

The Quinnipiac poll took the country’s pulse on issues such as civility, immigration and President Trump’s character.

Forty-nine percent of voters polled also said Trump is racist while 47 said he is not.
I respectfully submit that those 47% who think Trump isn't racist are (a) purposefully ignorant; (b) willfully blind, or (c) have mush for brains.

I suspect 'bots make up a good portion of the 47% nots.

And I would note that anyone acting in any manner perceived as racist is excoriated immediately these days....unlike years ago, where it was ignored.

In addition, I would ask if they had asked this question during the previous 8 years?

And, really where were these reporters during that administration when (anti-white) black racism was so prevalent?

I doubt the impartial veracity of this poll. I smell an agenda.

B, I thought the White Génocide started in 2009.

And B. wins the race to ”Whataboutism”. For someone prone to argue others aren’t thinking, he’s quite dependable with the same.

I would like to posit a (d) harbor racist thoughts of their own which tend to normalize Fergus' behavior in their eyes.
I'm still hoping this group is smaller than it probably is, even after the 2016 reality check I got on that score, so I guess it works in both directions...
