It doesn't happen every time = it doesn't happen at all? Surely that's not what you're getting at is it? Otherwise why create a thread to call out something you already know most folks would probably agree with isn't happening 100% of the time?

You've been involved with or have seen discussions over the border wall or voter IDs that ended up with a liberal calling a conservative a racist because they see both subjects differently haven't you?
Hmmm, you really want to go there? Ok. Let's discuss how all the right-wingers on this thread are essentially arguing the same thing. Shall we? Basically, liberals always end up calling them racist because they disagree. No I don't see that happening at all. And what about accusations of racism coming from conservatives against liberals? How is it so many right-wingers manage to ignore that? Let's talk about that for a while. Shall we?

People who dislike being called out as racists shouldn't act like racists in the first place.
"People who dislike being called out as socialists shouldn't act like socialists in the first place".

Do you see how stupid that sounds? I've been called a racist for disagreeing with Affirmative Action and reparations. I explained my reasoning, but it didn't matter to those labeling me a racist. Sorry, but you are wrong.

You think a political outlook equates to discrimination and hate? 'Bye.

Trump's a racist. His supporters just deny it to somehow make themselves feel better. It's hard to debate a Trump supporter without it coming up. Especially when they condone his racist statements and bigoted behavior. My view is that if you support this racist President then why would you question someone accusing you of racism. If you make the statement that nothing is wrong with dumping brown people in sanctuary cities then you are most likely a racist.
If you start nodding your head when you hear Trump talking about 'shit-hole countries', you're probably a racist. If you liked it when you heard him call Mexicans 'rapists', you're likely a racist. If you thought it was swell when he said there were "some very fine people" marching with the neo-Nazis at Charlottesville, you're almost certainly a racist. If you thought it was funny when Trump questioned the ability of a judge of Hispanic heritage to be impartial in a case involving Trump, then yes, you're probably tainted with racism. At some point, the evidence just starts to pile up.

I’d be inclined to believe some accusations if they didn’t make these accusations no matter what.

I'm afraid I don't comprehend your post. Sorry. I think it is manifestly clear that Donald Trump himself is a racist. At least a subset of his supporters are. Those of his supporters who are not are simply averting their eyes to the plentiful evidence of his racism. Shrug.

So again . . . you don't see it happening = it never happens? Pfffft. Surely you're better than that.

Are you seriously whining about conservatives complaining about being called a racists by liberals by invoking whataboutism?

For real?

I think the sky is falling and a lot of chicken littles are out there.
