The Republican racism quiz

This past week, we’ve seen the amazing redefinition of racism to mean “criticism of Trump by four Congresswomen of color.” On the heels of his infamous rally in which the crowd chanted “SEND HER BACK!” about Ilhan Omar, Trump tweeted “The ‘Squad’ is a very Racist group of troublemakers who are young, inexperienced, and not very smart.”  So now we have two contradictory arguments from Republicans when they commit acts of bigotry. There is no racism and progressives throw around that word too much — and when they do, they are being racist. (Not only that, but “Racist” with a random capital “R” as is Trump’s wont). It’s illogical, but we are post-logic now, so it’s all good.

For a discussion of the difference between Obama’s questionable immigration policies and Trump’s despicable immigration policies, see this Vox article.
