Why the Left Calls Good People Racist, by Denis Prager, a nationally syndicated radio talk-show host and columnist. After detailing various smears against him by left wing media like Newsweek — such as ‘he said slavery was not bad” in a speech, despite video evidence of the entire speech showing he said nothing remotely like that — Prager lets you know what he really thinks:
So, then, why do left-wing media do this?
There are two major reasons.
First, truth is not a left-wing value. As I have said and written ever since studying communism and the left in graduate school at the Columbia University Russian Institute, truth is a liberal value and a conservative value, but it is not a left-wing value. However, destroying opponents by destroying their reputations is a left-wing value — whether it’s charging Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh with multiple rapes, preoccupying the country with the fake charge that Donald Trump’s presidential campaign colluded with Russia to manipulate the 2016 election, or the charges such as those made against me.
Second, smearing opponents is not only a left-wing value; it is the left’s modus operandi. And the reason for that is: The left does not win through argument. It wins through smear. If you differ with the left, you are, by definition, sexist, racist, bigoted, intolerant, homophobic, Islamophobic, xenophobic, fascist and/or a hater. The proof? You cannot name a single opponent of the left who has not been so labeled.
Upon reflection, he’s probably correct.
The left call opponents “racist” because it works, and because there are no consequences. Though its power has been waning of late. If all whites are racist and no one else is racist, and the left discriminates blatantly on the basis of race, then what does it even mean to be called a racist? Like “fascist” before it, and “white supremacist” next.
