It is insidious to watch the left do its dirty work of demonization. It starts with a narrative constructed on false accusations and misleading innuendos. Then, the narrative is repeated enough until it becomes accepted truth. Finally, wider conclusions are drawn from it, casting ugly aspersions on the innocent.

In the current iteration, the narrative began with accusations that President Trump was a white supremacist and racist, fueled by selective quotes from his Charlottesville press conference. (See now the Prager U video, “The Charlottesville Lie.”) Then, that narrative was repeated day and night by news pundits and politicians and educators and social media influencers.

This results in the feeling that, “It must be true, because it is everywhere.”

Now, in the final stage, the accusation is broadened: Anyone who votes for Trump is a racist, specifically, a white supremacist.

This is what we are up against.

This is not to say that President Trump has done nothing to play into racist stereotypes (such as his “Go back” tweets). And this is not to deny that the president has exacerbated racial tensions in America, adding to the damage done by the identity politics of President Obama. And this is not to say that those on the right are always fair, balanced and blameless.

But it is to say that what the left is doing is insidious. It is character assassination on a massive scale. And it is utterly destructive.
