Trumpís push to amplify racism unnerves Republicans who have long enabled him (barf)
Washington Post ^ | July 4, 2020 | Robert Costa, Philip Rucker

President Trump’s unyielding push to preserve Confederate symbols and the legacy of white domination, crystallized by his harsh denunciation of the racial justice movement Friday night at Mount Rushmore, has unnerved Republicans who have long enabled him but now fear losing power and forever associating their party with his racial animus.

Although amplifying racism and stoking culture wars have been mainstays of Trump’s public identity for decades, they have been particularly pronounced this summer as the president has reacted to the national reckoning over systemic discrimination by seeking to weaponize the anger and resentment of some white Americans for his own political gain.

Trump has left little doubt through his utterances the past few weeks that he sees himself not only as the Republican standard-bearer but as leader of a modern grievance movement animated by civic strife and marked by calls for “white power,” the phrase chanted by one of his supporters in a video the president shared last weekend on Twitter. He later deleted the video but did not disavow its message.

The entire purpose of the Charlottesville play staged by Terry McAwful was to set the narrative that anyone wanting to preserve American history was a racist bigot.

I’m not giving the compost clicks but from the excerpt it is obvious the author thinks he’s super eloquent. Not. Word salad.

One quote from the open borders guy at the US Chamber of Commerce and a “quote” from an unnamed official. The rest is standard communist boilerplate. So that constitutes “unnerving Republicans”? They don’t even lie well anymore.

Which Republicans? You mean like Bill Kristol, Mitt Romney, Linda Graham, George & Jeb Bush and some of those two-face cowards in the GOP Senate. I hope they’re unnerved. They should be. Those dummies haven’t figured out yet that when Trump goes, they’re right behind him. Instead of helping the POTUS, they stab him in the back every chance they get.
