Claiming the phrase, Make America Great Again, is a racist statement is a tactic that preceded Donald Trump adopting it as a slogan. It’s being characterized as a microaggression in many colleges, most notably in the entire California university system by the head of the system, Janet Napolitano. The complaint is that America was never great for blacks, therefore, it can never be said.
There is something far more sinister behind it. The left wants to transform America and if it was great, that wouldn’t be helpful.
Replacing Americans with illegal immigrants and refugees won’t be acceptable if traditional America was great. Transforming our economy into some redistributive Marxist hell won’t work if it was great.
Listen to a leftist thought policeman explain why the phrase is racist if Trump says it. Words like “irrational” and “illogical” come to mind. He is responding to the fact that it was Bill Clinton’s slogan by now saying it wasn’t racist when Bill said it but it’s racist when Trump says it because of his motivations which this thought policeman apparently can discern using a mind meld perhaps.
Trump wants to stop illegal immigration and he is right in saying a lot of the people coming over now are criminals and terrorists. That has been confirmed many times by Border Patrol.
