It’s almost the Fourth of July.

Have you been called a racist yet?

Chances are you will be branded by that disgusting word sooner or later.

Progressive politicians have made “racist” the old/new hot word.

When they want to add a cherry to the top of the slur, aggressive progressives accuse someone of “systemic” racism.

“Systemic” being a word that many people use but few really understand.

Let me put it this way.

You’ll be called a racist if you ever voted for a Republican.

If you ever voted as an Independent.

If you ever failed to vote for a Democrat in any election.

If you like to laugh and reject political correctness and your favorite movie is “Blazing Saddles.”

If you, or someone you know, voted for Donald Trump.

If you ever said anything positive about your local police force.

If you respect the Supreme Court.

If you don’t want every statue of every general or politician in our nation’s history taken down by morons who have never opened a history book.

If, through no fault of yours, your skin is white, yellow, olive etc. etc.

You’ll also be called a racist if your skin is black but for your own protection you want gun-carrying thugs in your neighborhood stopped and frisked.

Branding all people with a label like racist is particularly dumb because the real bad guys, the real racists, get lost in the crowd and the word “racist” loses its power and meaning.

This not the first time a word has been thrown around carelessly.

In the 1950s the word that was thrown around to brand people was “communist.” Senator Joseph McCarthy, a truly evil man, found he could win political votes and power by branding just about everyone a communist.

For a while it worked and he destroyed a lot of innocent lives.

I fully expect the new Joe McCarthy of our time, the queen of the progressives, dopey Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, to stand up in Congress and say, “Speaker Pelosi, I have here in my hand a list of members of this Congress who are racists.”

Does that sound ridiculous?

From the news wires:

Progressive Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez suggested Thursday that all bipartisan deals in Washington, D.C. are inherently racist.

AOC suggests $1.2 trillion Biden plan is racist because the “bipartisan coalition” is all white.

AOC, who spends more time trying to rewrite history than trying to learn from it, should check out the historic legislation record of President Lyndon Johnson who, utilizing bipartisan Republican cooperation while fighting off the opposition of southern Democrats, forged the greatest civil rights legislation in our nation’s history.

On July 2, 1964, the Civil Rights Act – a landmark civil rights and labor law in the United States that outlaws discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin and, later, sexual orientation and gender identity – was signed into law. The final law passed with the votes of Republicans and northern Democrats.

My problem with progressives is that when they call for defunding police they are listened to by weak, stupid politicians like Bill de Blasio.

De Blasio is a true progressive who other progressive never talk about because he is such a dunce and such a failure. He’s ruined New York City.

When George Floyd was murdered by that disgusting monster cop Derek Chauvin in Minneapolis, there were calls for defunding police in every city in the United States.

De Blasio immediately disbanded the 600-member police department anticrime unit, an elite force aimed at disarming criminals in the city’s most violent areas, created with the mission of ridding the streets of illegal guns and stopping violent crimes.

The result: The guns came back on the streets. Punks who don’t care who gets hit by the bullets they fire are running wild. Not a day goes by without a shooting and some innocent person being killed.

Thanks to progressives the new bail system is so low that a punk could shoot up a place, get caught and be back out on the street the next day to shoot some more.

Sadly, some of the victims of these killers are black infants who should have been protected by the police, not abandoned by the hopeless mayor.

According to the NYPD’s latest statistics, shooting victims are up more than 78% – 552 this this year compared to 309 at this time in 2020. That’s an increase of more than 118% compared to two years ago.

To put a name to those cold statistics:

One-year-old Davell Gardner Jr. was killed when shots rang out at a barbecue in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. Gardner Jr. was sitting in his stroller when he was fatally struck by the stray bullet.

Tell me why progressives should not be named as accessories in the murder of Davell Gardner Jr.?

It’s not just New York. It’s every city where progressives have pushed to defund police and weak stupid politicians have complied.

Bullets are flying and stray bullets are killing children in Chicago, Philadelphia, Minneapolis, Portland, St. Louis, Los Angeles, San Francisco.

Shootings are out of control. And yet the progressives like AOC are still calling for the police to be defunded.

Want to know the irony? AOC pays for a private security force. Her choice for mayor of New York City, Maya Wiley, a wacko who wanted to decimate the New York police, has her own security force. They want security protection for their families and themselves but not for you and me.

They pay no attention to the majority of blacks who want more of a police presence. A recent Gallop poll shows 81% of blacks want more police protection in their areas, not less. A huge black vote gave Eric Adams the lead in a primary for the next mayor of New York City. Adams is a clear law-and-order candidate.

But progressives aren’t listening to anything but the sound of their own voices.

Defunding police forces around this country has caused more crime and death, but the defund-the-police morons are still preaching against law and order.

I’m sure as a result of this article I will be called a racist by AOC-loving progressives.

I guess I go back to my Brooklyn roots when I say “fuck them.” I hope they’re haunted every night by the memory of the innocent babies their insane ideas have killed.
