That particular tactic shielded the Obama presidency from day one to day last from even legitimate criticism, as only racists would dare disagree with His Exaltedness, Emperor Barack I. And that is the landscape Democrats now occupy - all disagreement is because of 'ism, especially if the person being disagreed with is even remotely part of a "protected" class.

Thing is, now it isn't just old, white guy Republicans disagreeing with AOC and her Squad...it's the larger Democrat majority, who painted themselves into this deliciously ironic corner. As AntiFa points out, being insufficiently woke, even among the old guard protected classes (like a gay Asian journalist, checking off three different 'friendly to Dems' intersectionality boxes), gets you a beating in the public square, literally and/or figuratively.

Nancy's divisive identity politics chickens have come home to roost. The days of the Caucasion cisgendered Democrat are numbered, and the species itself looks endangered. But given the survival instincts and battle hardening of the folks like Pelosi, Schumer et al, any victories won by either the #WokeDem left or the mainstream wing of the party will be pyrrhic. That much is certain.

Since when has that ever stopped anyone though?

Go back to the McCarthy era, replace communist with racist.

Dems will unite(this time, in their rabid hatred for Trump), under their eventual nominee--they always do. And you won't see any "Never Bidens" or "Never Harrises," either.
Racism accusations did lasting damage to Hillary Clinton's presidential aspiration and created a malaise towards her with minority voters, quite possibly being enough to have cost her the election to Trump.

Let that sink in. It's an extremely uncomfortable scenario for many to acknowledge but the turnout numbers all show it was real, just questionable if it would have been enough to make a difference.

P.S. There are a lot of white people out there that hate Trump, but are tired of being attacked on a daily basis over their race\gender. They may hold their nose again.

An increasingly public, racially-charged rift in the Democratic party is widening after attacks are lobbed between Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's camp and the Democratic establishment
This is hilarious. Who did not see this coming?


One cannot foment left wing lunatic ideas and expect them just to remain as talking points. Sooner or later, there are going to be full fledged loons who will actually embrace and want to implement all the things on the democrat wish list.


Uh oh....................... didn't they know we were just pandering to get votes?


One can expect more and more lunatic reps like AOC and Omar among the dems. Their sentiments are rising, not falling in the dem party. The dems are taking a hard left turn and are abandoning anyone who is not in full lunatic mode.


Fracturing of the party? You bet- the "mainstream" dems are in far more agreement with the republicans than the extremists in their own party. They will receive the same lambasting they have been giving republicans for years.

Last week, pelosi was racist. Of course the msm didnt howl or cover it much. Week before, biden was the racist. Today, Trump is racist, and the msm is going balls out, hyperventilating, misrepresenting, promoting hateful twitter hashtags. They must think that people on the left are braindead zombie stupid.

The bots and trolls are going full bore today.

Trump is worried about his Epstein issue. The private party with Epstein is starting to gain traction.

The security pictures must be worth seeing.

You have a right to your opinion, I believe Republicans are far worse on this issue than Democrats ever have been.

Because you're a Democrat.

A Republican would believe the opposite.

As a purely neutral party, I can see how both are the same. Sorry, but the party of segregation, Jim Crow and the KKK doesn't get a pass on using division and discord as their political stock in trade.
