Do You Know or Have You Ever Known a White Supremacist?

I get what the peerless Jen Palmieri was getting at a week ago. She was doing the liberal thing, hurling a liberal pejorative at Kellyanne Conway, breaker of the glass ceiling. She was playing the liberal race card. And if “raaaciss” doesn’t immediately come to mind, “white supremacist” will do the job.

Do liberals actually go to school to learn how to do this?

But still, I wonder. What exactly does “white supremacist” mean? Let us repair to the teachable moment of In the Heat of the Night when a black policeman arrives in a southern town to investigate a murder. The message is unmistakable. We liberals can send a black policeman down to the Deep South and you losers will like it. But still, there is a question. Is the marquee white supremacist the southern landowner icily showing Sidney Poitier around his orchid conservatory? Or is the real white supremacist the Rod Steiger police chief? Or the pathetic twitching soda jerk who actually dunnit?

Asking the question is the tactic offered by conservative criminology professor Mike Adams in advising a student who was told by his instructor that saying “all lives matter” is racist. You ask your liberal pejorative hurler three questions, writes Adams, and the first question is: “What do you mean by racism?”

It’s easy for Mike to say. He’s the tenured professor that won his suit against his university for denying him promotion to full professor. A student can’t afford to go up against the system, because the system has the power to wipe out the student’s investment in a college education.

At some point, we typical Americans have to stop doing the Cringe, and get right back in the liberal faces.

What do you mean by “white supremacist,” Jen? Do you mean that Donald Trump appealed to the white working class that was abandoned forty years ago by liberals as they cuddled up to the nice fresh meat of new black and female little darlings?

Or do you refer to the alt-white trollers that sent the liberal fake media to their fainting couches with a Hitler salute at their conference in Washington DC?

Or do you refer to the awful threat of David Duke and the menacing KKK that any moment could burst onto the street like Black Lives Matter even though they are completely unfinanced by globalist billionaires and unsupported by fawning media and never get an invitation to the White House during Republican administrations?

The fact is that the Trump people choked on the Steve Bannon affair when Trump had to deny any connection with the evil alt-right, as I wrote three weeks ago. And Kellyanne Conway choked when she responded to Jen Palmieri’s white supremacist accusation with the women’s Kaffee Klatsch “I can’t believe she said that” response, as in: “Do you think I ran a campaign where white supremacists had a platform? Are you going to look me in the face and tell me that?”

Somewhere, somehow, some political entrepreneur needs to start a seminar on how to respond to the liberal pejorative attack and its vile accusation, “do you now or have you ever known a white supremacist?”

In the case of Kellyanne Conway the response would go something like this: “Are you saying that giving a voice to workers whose jobs have been outsourced to China is white supremacist? Are you saying that supporting miners whose jobs have been snuffed out by the bicoastal conceit of saving the planet is white supremacist? Because you know what I think? I think that America’s biggest problem right now is that anyone that disagrees with a liberal on race is called a racist; anyone that disagrees with a liberal on gender is called a sexist; anyone that disagrees with the LGBT mafia is called a hater and a homophobe; anyone that disagrees with a liberal on immigration is called a xenophobe. There is no way we can bring America together while you liberals are running around calling people names and getting away with it. Meanwhile president-elect Trump and his whole team are dedicated to one thing, and one thing only. We want to bring Americans together and Make America Great Again. And we say to you naysayers and name-callers and speech curators that you can take your vile pejoratives and put them where the sun don’t shine.”

Someone has to come up with the 21st century version of the line made immortal by Joseph N. Welch: “Have you no sense of decency sir, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency?”

Who will be the one to bell the cat, and Bork the Borkers?
