And there's the second common ploy: "No, YOU are", as if "vermin... poisoning the blood of our nation" isn't a tacit confession. As if blaming January 6 on Black Lives Matter isn't a tacit confession. As if applauding "there were good people on both sides" isn't a tacit confession. As if fighting to keep up Confederate monuments to traitorous slaveholders isn't a tacit confession. As if blaming two black women in Georgia for an election loss isn't a tacit confession. Of course you will never hear donald trump explicitly confess "I am a racist and white supremacist", but his record as a landlord and employer, his history with the Central Park five, "hey look at my African American over here", and many other words in his speeches tell us what we already know... he has no appeal as a candidate and leader, WHATSOEVER, except that he's a blatantly obvious white supremacist.
