Presidential candidate Julian Castro told BuzzFeed on Thursday that he applauded those media outlets which called Trump “racist,” saying he believes they must “call a spade a spade.”
“I applaud news organizations that have recognized the need to call a spade and spade and use the word ‘racist,’” Castro said. “I believe he is.” Naturally he does. Painting Trump as a white supremacist is essential to rally the Left’s race-obsessed base.
Relentless accusations of Trump’s racism have been an ongoing strategy for the Left from the moment he announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination for President — accusations that never arose in his previous decades of public life.
A prime example of media race-mongering: the New York Times recently was exposed over a meeting in which its editors declared they would be shifting their coverage from the false narrative of the Russian election collusion to the false narrative of Trump’s racism, in order to demonize him ahead of the 2020 election.
