Let's make a Google comparison of Bush and Trump being accused of racism:

Bush having completed 8 years in office, if you google his name with "racism": 9,800,000 hits

Trump, after a mere 3 years in office, if you google his name with "racism": 253,000,000 hits.

So I think that supports my feeling that Bush did not have a comparable level of accusations.

have you stop beating your wife yet?


that is a question that cannot be defended either yes you have stop or no you still


nazi, racist are labels that cannot be defended, if anything is said that you dont agree with, you are a nazi, racist, white supremacy, homophobia and you hate cats in the house.


it doesnt matter if it true or not, it cant be defended. so all this is brought to you by those that lost the hillary election. It been like this for the last two years, attack, attack, attack but still he wins every battle


so I could say all democratic are racist, its kinda true since they invented the kkk 150 years ago, but reallity it just cant be defended

I wonder if liberals do (or can) think about anything else. Such preoccupation with "racism" makes them uniquely boring and tiresome.
The bright side is just like the horse in the Mall, you get to ride them liberals and can put in more nickels if you want more time !!! Another advantage to the horse in the Mall is you don't have to clean up its poop !!!

So you are comparing it based on social media from at least 11 years ago? How many more sites are there today compared to 11 years ago? Don't you think that has something to do with the number of Google hits?

Racism has been the go to argument for the Democrats for a long time now. It has been used so much that the word is becoming meaningless.

We forgive Kanye for calling Bush a racist because he is now our new black hero after his praise of Trump.

Yeah, I remember a widespread meme that W Bush went to Iraq in order to kill 'brown people.' I also remember the widespread meme that the W. Bush campaign arranged for racist robo-calls in the South Carolina 2000 primary.

And plenty of other memes from the time. You have to be either too young, or oblivious to the news, not to remember.

Seriously?

The internet was still in relative infancy in 2000. Now everyone has internet in their shirt pocket. I bet you won't get very many hits for "Woodrow Wilson racist" either. Even though Wilson was a died in the wool racist who segregated the federal workforce in the early 20th century.
