Tens of thousands of normal freedom loving Americans join together at Tea Party rallies in protest against a federal government that is too big, too expensive and too intrusive and what is the liberal response? They call these people racist, KKK without robes and hoods, tea baggers and every other insulting and disparaging names and insults they can think of.
In case some are new to making your voice publicly heard through your activism in the political process, you need to know something about how liberals operate in attempting to silence your voice. The use of insults and character assignation is the leading tool that liberals use to try to silence the opposition.
Calling you racist, dumb, stupid, ignorant and comparing you to the KKK is intended to intimidate you and silence your voice. This slander is conceived at the highest levels of the Democrat Party by far left liberals who have their willing minions filter this non-sense down throughout its ranks for the express purpose of ending debate. The far left corrupt liberal main stream media picks up the liberal talking points and only adds heat to the fire.
Calling you a racist is a gimmick the race baiters of the civil rights coalition have used for a long time. This tactic was then picked up by liberals and used against conservatives because it worked. Our first instinct when being called such names is to try to convince the other side you’re not a racist. That’s exactly where liberals want you because now you have stopped making the political argument in defense or promotion of your political ideology and now find yourself defending the charges you a racist. That’s how liberals operate and conservatives need to understand what liberals are doing and fight back against it.
I have a suggestion for conservatives to use against liberals when insulted. Simply say, I know in my heart that I am not a racist. I find it personally insulting and you should be ashamed of yourself for using such character assignations to deflect the fact that liberalism has failed wherever and whenever it is tried. This federal government is too big, too expensive and too intrusive and more government makes all of us less free and that’s the soul reason for my activism. In other words, briefly answer the charge, expose the tactic of liberals and state the reason for your activism. Don’t let liberals intimidate you.
