None Dare Call It Racism
But really, I don't know what else to call it:
“I don't want to be melodramatic but I do want to be truthful,” the evangelical Christian [Michelle Bachman] said in an interview on the Christian Broadcasting Network’s “Brody File.” “I believe without a shadow of a doubt this is the last election. This is it. This is the last election.”
“It's a math problem of demographics and a changing United States,” she said. “If you look at the numbers of people who vote and who lives in the country and who Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton want to bring in to the country, this is the last election when we even have a chance to vote for somebody who will stand up for godly moral principles. This is it.”
I suppose it's not "hate speech," and Bachman is not from the "Jim Crow South;" but still, the linkage of the "wrong" kind of voters being brought "in to the country" and "somebody who will stand up for godly moral principles" couldn't be much clearer.
You don't have to be a dog to hear that whistle blow. And you know she'd disavow any racial animus, and be truly insulted by the mention.
And to prove there is always an Uncle Ruckus to be found among us:
Latinos for Trump founder Marco Gutierrez's comments came while he was defending Donald Trump's immigration position to MSNBC's Joy-Ann Reid.No, I don't know what the problem with taco trucks is, either. Nor did I realize his culture was so dominant and imposing. Curiously, most people are proud to make that statement.
"My culture is a very dominant culture. And it's imposing, and it's causing problems. If you don't do something about it, you're going to have taco trucks on every corner," Gutierrez said.
