What is racism? Well, the definition according to some far Left politicians is quite shocking. And that is how AOC called Nancy Pelosi a racist.
Have people like AOC really sunk so low as to openly say that anyone who disagrees with them is a racist? Last time I checked, the definition of racism was “prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one’s own race is superior.” Did the definition get changed? Does it now mean that anyone who disagrees with my opinion is a racist? According to AOC and some on the far Left, apparently yes.
Undermining REAL Racism
Calling someone a racist for disagreeing with your views is not only offensive, but it undermines what racism actually is. Overusing the term when it is completely irrelevant and untrue belittles real racism. It even encourages it. But AOC did not think about that, did she?
Ben Shapiro points out how hilariously ironic it is that the Democrats own identity politics came back to bite them. Maybe they should have thought about that ahead of time. But for now, they have some strife within their own party that they have to sort out. Otherwise, AOC might even go as far as to call Pelosi a Conservative!
