(National Sentinel) Left-wing Nazis: If anyone still believes that conservatives and Trump supporters are ‘the problem’ in America, they need to turn off CNN and MSNBC for a few weeks and explore different avenues of information.
Because with each passing day it becomes increasingly obvious that the American Left is not only creating an environment of hypocrisy and intolerance, they are destroying civility in the process.
This was all on display again in recent days at the University of Georgia, where the dean of the institution’s school of journalism was forced to apologize because he dared to congratulate a Republican friend.
Campus Reform reported:
A University of Georgia professor issued an apology to those he had “offended” when he congratulated an old friend on becoming the state’s Republican candidate for governor.
Charles Davis, dean of the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication at UGA, sent the offending tweet shortly after Brian Kemp won the GOP primary Tuesday night, noting that he had been friends with Kemp since childhood and considers him a “nice guy.”
“I went to high school with GOP guv candidate @BrianKempGA. We played YMCA ball from childhood. Politics be damned. He is a nice guy, always was. Kind to a fault,” Davis tweeted. “He’s a friend, always has been, and will be when we’re old(er) and grey(er). That’s how all this should work, people.”
Rather than embracing Davis’ call for civility, liberals quickly denounced him for having something nice to say about a Republican, declaring that Kemp is a “racist” who “spews bigoted and dangerous rhetoric,” and insinuating that Davis must therefore be no different.
“You’re a straight white man. Of course he was nice and kind to you. Racists are generally nice to their own kind,” one user replied. “Why don’t you say what you really mean. Politics be damned. You’d never vote for a black woman and would much rather vote for the white racist.”
“It’s the definition of privilege,” another user remarked caustically. “~the dean~ has the luxury of damning politics because no politician is threatening his rights, safety, or survival; he is willing to empower those who would threaten the same of others on account of the candidate being ‘nice’ to him personally.”
And of course, Davis instantly apologized. “I’d like to apologize to anyone offended by my tweet shout out to Brian Kemp…I’ve read and learned so much from you all and will endeavor to be more thoughtful,” he tweeted.
See how that works? Without a shred of proof or evidence of any kind, because Kemp is white and he happens to be running against a black woman (who’s broke, by the way, yet she wants to run the state’s budget), he must be racist and so are all his friends.
But also notice how it doesn’t work in reverse? These same lunatics would never jump to the conclusion, based on a skewed stereotype, that Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams, Kemp’s opponent who is black, could be racist.
As a society, we cannot continue to reward this mindless incivility with apologies and cowardice. People need to be called out to justify their remarks with evidence and substance. They can’t just be allowed to make such inane statements without ever being challenged.
