The Left has long said that racism against white people is impossible. Anyone who suggests that such a thing exist is subjected to ridicule. It’s a kind of third rail in politics, so don’t touch it.
Such rules don’t apply to provocateurs such as Stephen Miller, whose legal advocacy group released a radio ad on the subject.
“When did racism against white people become okay?” asks the narrator, over ominous music. “Joe Biden put white people last in line for Covid relief funds. Kamala Harris said disaster aid should go to non-white citizens first. Liberal politicians block access to medicine based on skin color. Progressive corporations, airlines, universities all openly discriminate against white Americans. Racism is always wrong. The left’s anti-white bigotry must stop. We are all entitled to equal treatment under the law.”
The spot ends with the disclosure that it is paid for by America First Legal, Miller’s organization. On the board of that group are some staunch Trump allies, including former chief of staff Mark Meadows and former acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker.
On the main page of AFL’s website is the following statement:
“America First Legal is the long-awaited answer to the ACLU. We are committed to an unwavering defense of true equality under law, national borders and sovereignty, freedom of speech and religion, classical values and virtues, the sanctity of life and centrality of family, and our timeless legal and constitutional heritage. Through relentless litigation and oversight we will protect America First, Last, and Always.”
Leftist website Politico took exception to the ad. Meredith McGraw wrote that it is “one of the most openly race-based spots of the cycle, amplifying tropes that have historically been used to generate backlash to minority groups.”
They sure love the word ‘trope’, don’t they? They must think it makes them sound smart. But the Left’s contention that racism against whites is impossible is itself a toxic trope.
In addition to the ‘trope’ dismissal, Politico also sought to debunk the ad’s claims by citing fact checks. Does anyone think that these so-called ‘fact checks’ are performed by nonpartisan referees who dispassionately evaluate political claims against real facts? Everyone knows what ‘fact checks’ are.
The ad is not America First Legal’s first foray into the subject of racism against white people. The group filed a lawsuit earlier this year in New York against the Department of Health’s guideline for Covid-19 treatment, which stated, incredibly, that “Non-white race or Hispanic/Latino ethnicity should be considered a risk factor, as longstanding systemic health and social inequities have contributed to an increased risk of severe illness and death from COVID-19.”
AFL also filed FOIA lawsuits that forced the release of the administration’s Equity Action Plans for the pandemic.
The group further produced political mailers that stated: “Joe Biden and left-wing officials are engaged in widespread racial discrimination against white and Asian Americans … even though it’s against the law.”
Audio of the America First Legal ad was obtained by Politico and made available online.
