David Axelrod: Trump Not #Racist ~ Shame on Both Trump & Clinton Campaigns For Using Race To Get Votes! | Blog#42 | Blog #42 – If Trump “merely” exploited this nation’s original sin of racism by saying what he needed to say in order to garner votes, what does it say about the Democrats who were successful in getting journalists and academics to publish articles about Senator Bernie Sanders’ Jewish background and lack of religiosity in this nation’s major newspapers? What does it say about the Clinton campaign that Black Lives Matter was never even acknowledged or supported? What does it say that former House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, emailed Democratic members of Congress, urging them not to support Black Lives Matter policies? What does it say about the Clinton campaign and the DNC that they actively promoted the narrative whereby former white middle class and blue collar workers who voted for Trump or abstained from voting at all, did so out of racism and not out of disagreement with Hillary Clinton’s neoliberalism? This narrative was what the entirety of the news media hammered its audience with day in, day out.
