Everything to Democrats is about racism and bigotry. Everything. It doesn’t matter what Republicans, especially President Trump, say. If the person they’re talking to or about is a minority, then Democrats like Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi instantly pull out the race card.
Here’s the Tweet in question. As you read it, ask yourself this: If you didn’t know Elijah Cummings’s race, would you be able to determine that from these Tweets:
….As proven last week during a Congressional tour, the Border is clean, efficient & well run, just very crowded. Cumming District is a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess. If he spent more time in Baltimore, maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous & filthy place

There is absolutely, positively zero reference to race in this Tweet. If the representative for Baltimore was a white male, the President could have Tweeted the exact words and replaced the name and nothing would change from the sentiment. But according to Pelosi, this is racist. It’s not racist because of anything the President actually said. She considers it racist because the person being criticized is African-American.
.@RepCummings is a champion in the Congress and the country for civil rights and economic justice, a beloved leader in Baltimore, and deeply valued colleague. We all reject racist attacks against him and support his steadfast leadership. #ElijahCummingsIsAPatriot https://t.co/2LG8AuQrHh

There have been plenty of people from both sides of the political aisle who have come forward to declare that the President’s comments are accurate. Cummings’s district in Baltimore is, in fact, a very dangerous and literally rat-infested place. There is nothing racist about the President’s Tweet. In fact, the issue of race itself must be inserted by Democrats like Pelosi in order to make her failed colleague seem like the victim.
The people of Baltimore are the real victims of decades of Democratic policies that have harmed them more than anything proposed by Republicans. That’s not a racist statement. Again, it’s just a fact. But all Pelosi has going for her is the false notion that her party isn’t racist. They fight against voter IDs, but that’s not racist in their opinion. They promote Planned Parenthood, an organization with its roots in depleting the African-American population, but that’s not racist in their opinion. The history of racism in the Democratic Party hasn’t changed. It’s simply been institutionalized into an industry that propagates falsehoods in order to allow them to continue in their racist ways.
Pelosi believes substantive criticism of an individual is to be considered racist simply because the individual is a minority. This is the latest horrid stance the Democrats have embraced, one that serves to widen the racial divide in America.
