Writing as an anti Trump democrat.

Slowly with this R accusation...

The racists that cry "racism" (the phenomenon after exposing some of Bari Weiss' former colleages at New York Times).

We do not all know these former colleague personally. Yet, it is about the phenomenon in and of itself.

Let's take specifically Bari Weiss' accusation (in her resignation letter: July -2020). Excerpt:

'My own forays into Wrongthink have made me the subject of constant bullying by colleagues who disagree with my views. They have called me a Nazi and a racist; I have learned to brush off comments about how I'm "writing about the Jews again." Several colleagues perceived to be friendly with me were badgered by coworkers. My work and my character are openly demeaned on company-wide Slack channels where masthead editors regularly weigh in. There, some coworkers insist I need to be rooted out if this company is to be a truly "inclusive" one, while others post ax emojis next to my name. Still other New York Times employees publicly smear me as a liar and a bigot on Twitter with no fear that harassing me will be met with appropriate action. They never are...
But there is still none appended to Cheryl Strayed's fawning interview with the writer Alice Walker, a proud anti-Semite who believes in lizard Illuminati.'

It reminds how Racists cry "racism". [ https://www.wnd.com/2001/09/10776/ ] .

It goes back to the first on record true hater who began this slippery slope of using this as epithet only to hurt while being THE racist.

It was Issa Nakhleh who made sure to throw it in the face of survivors of the Holocaust in the US in his first of a kind June 17, 1949 "worst than nazis" memo.

This cruel human being couldn't hold himself back in November 14, 1972 [ https://books.google.com/books?id=wk0oAQAAMAAJ&q=issa+nakhleh+hitler ] to expose himself as he uttered that Hitler never killed Jews and denied the Holocaust ever happened. All the millions are alive... He said that it was all invented By J... He repeated it 6 years later to disturb the peace of Camp David between Sadat and Begin Historic peace summit. [ https://books.google.com/books?id=dUz4AAAAQBAJ&pg=PA120 ]

Imagine the maliciousness of only less than 3 decades after WW2, stating this as those who lost so many and went through so much, revictimized all over again.

This non-white brown Arab linked with most true neo nazis "aryans," since the 1960's [ https://books.google.com/books?id=zdc3AQAAIAAJ&q=issa+nakhleh+hitler ], published "articles," for them, spoke at holocaust denial convention representing Muslim Congress [ https://books.google.com/books?id=hPUSAQAAMAAJ&q=nakhleh+hitler ], and defended holocaust-denier Ditlieb [ https://books.google.com/books?id=2PCQBgAAQBAJ&pg=PT339 ].

Again, turning back the clock, remember his accusation of Nazism in 1949?

(Unrelated to this. Though we could go on for days to show the raw racism in how Arab militants' violence linked to Gaza government or "moderate" Ramallah government or helped by Arabs inside Israel target specifically only Jews (I refer to civilians) and not Arabs. Or Racist dehumanization in Palestine [ https://www.google.com/search?q=pa+apes+pigs ] .
... annexation would be a mistake. Yet, slowly with this R accusation , that became but a knife so often).
