The narrative is that the Republicans are racist, and that the RNC is a platform for ‘dog whistle’ demonstrations of that racism. But the reality has a decidedly different look:
Watch her speech by clicking on this link:
Now, personally, I’m tired of the partisan fighting, so I’m not going to opine in an overtly partisan way. All I know is that what I see in the Republican Party are intelligent, well spoken, seemingly well respected men and women of color rising to prominent positions in the Party. What’s more, were I to judge by the way the rank-and-file Republican seems to respond to these men and women, they are not only well respected, they are loved.
Now, I suppose it is possible that this is actually racism, but it isn’t the racism by any definition I ever learned. I have never seen racism defined this way in a dictionary, and encyclopedia or even in any of my sociology texts. So, if it is racism as the Progressives would have us believe, then racism must have some definition other than that which most Americans would understand. What’s more, it must be a definition known only to them, because, try as I may, I can’t find their definition anywhere but in their words.
And that brings me to my last observation. The Progressives keep accusing the RNC of using ‘dog whistle’ or ‘code’ language to exhibit their racial tendencies. Since reality seems to be the opposite of these assertions, I am reminded of something that is in the dictionary, encyclopedia and sociology and psychiatry text books:
Psychological projection or projection bias is a psychological defense mechanism where a person unconsciously denies their own attributes, thoughts, and emotions, which are then ascribed to the outside world, such as to the weather, or to other people. Thus, it involves imagining or projecting that others have those feelings.
