Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, February 23, 2018

NPR's Code Switch discusses whether or not it's appropriate to label Donald Trump's statements, such as allegedly referring to certain countries as "s---holes", calling Mexicans rapists and supporting a Muslim ban, as racist.

Interesting discussion, but they missed a couple of obvious points, such as the difference between racism and xenophobia, and the fact that Trump deliberately uses ambiguous language to goad people into calling him racist because that word has been misused and abused so much and he's proven that it will backfire on those who take the bait.

I actually thought it funny when Trump said that he thought Mid-Westerners where devolving. Seriously, guys, for your entertainment dollar, would you have rather had Hillery? Ewww.

What you're doing is evil. The devil really exists in the actions of you two.

Sentinel is implying that saying the word "racist" has become watered down ... but after quick scan of his link, they're basically saying, in very clear terms, that what Trump is saying is racist and that Trump's words appeal to racists.

Watch for snakes, and Lenin's Teeth. If you like anagrams...

#4, they present both sides of the argument. Look for the comments by (Mark) MEMMOTT, NPR's standards and practices editor who argues against using that label against Trump.

But like I said, they missed two important points, and did slant toward the viewpoint you mentioned toward the end, which is why I'm critical of the piece.
