The Political Hate Word – Racist

by Michael Lodge

The word Racist is no longer a word to correctly describe an individual on their point of view against a race.  The word has been corrupted by a politician to incorrectly describe a whole group of americans who do not beleive in a liberal or socialist political belief.  It now boils down to if you dont believe as I do – your a racist.

This morning I was having a debate on taxation and the economy with a liberal.  His response was, “most everyone is a racist like you”.  He went to a political response, one he has heard from Clinton that Conservatives are lumped into being racist and deplorable.  The word racist is now a liberal term to throw hard at people who do not believe politically as they do, it is a word of hate against fellow Americans.

The word is no longer meaningful to describe a real racist individual correctly, it now descibes a political belief and is meaningless.  It doesnt describe a hate for a race, instead it describes a hate for a political view.  

Politicians have a way to corrupt the meaning of words and views.  Lets watch our words carefully.

 Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.
