Poll shows Dems say ‘to criticize the political views of a politician of color’ is racist
32 percent of Democrats believe that it is “racist” to disagree with “the political views of a politician of color,” according to a new Rasmussen Poll.
The national survey of 1,000 U.S. likely voters was conducted July 15-16, 2019 by Rasmussen Reports.
The results show a worryingly high number of Democratic voters see criticism from a white politician as racism when the views they are criticizing are those of a person of color, no matter the subject of debate.
The poll asked; “is it racist for a white politician to criticize the political views of a politician of color?”
Almost a third of all Democrat respondents said they believe this constitutes as racism.
Rasmussen reports that 32% of Democrats believe it is racist to dare disagree with a political opponent if that opponent has a different skin color.
Thirty-two percent (32%) of Democrats, however, say it’s racist for any white politician to criticize the political views of a politician of color. That’s a view shared by just 16% of both GOP and unaffiliated voters… https://t.co/JF76g6rvXe pic.twitter.com/fnswKOZOoJ

According to the Western Journal, the poll explains the insanity of the language we see being propagated across the media these days.
One cannot discuss the merits of border reform without being called a xenophobe by the left.
As soon as somebody attempts to discuss the science of whether life begins at conception, the left pounces and labels them a woman-hater and misogynist.
If you want to have a civil discussion to address issues surrounding prison reform, minimum wage, or even social media censorship, the left will crucify you as a racist.
One of the fundamental virtues of free speech is that intellectual diversity makes America a greater place.
The politically correct culture of leftism punishes that same diversity.
The left wants to silence all detractors.
It cannot let opposition stand.
Because its ideas are inferior, the left embraces censorship, bans, and name-calling to suppress or even eliminate the voices that dare question it.
Only the left would see silence-by-duress as a paradigm for freedom.
But do not let fear stop you.
Regardless of your opponent’s skin color, pay him the dignity of civility and truth.
Do not hold back.
Truth will prevail.
