I’ve had the “Southern Strategy” thrown in my face I don’t know how many times. Finally, a video that helps me counter it.
** Some years ago I predicted, often, that we could have eye-witnesses (and even video/audio) of Islamic attackers screaming “Allahu ackbar!” in America, and people would deny it. This is one of those times where I think “Man, do I hate being right all the time!” Related to being right:
** Similarly, I have said for years that PC is going to get people killed. This. Is. Insane.

** Quote (italics / not italics / bolding preserved):
Let me interpret that for you, you low IQ dunce. These signs are to let you know, you hateful lover of law and order and restraint and decorum, that you are not welcome here. Contrary to "all are welcome," you will notice that one group is decidedly missing. You. You think abortion is murder, so you don't "stand with women," even though half of those babies being killed are girls. You favor legal immigration, so you don't "stand with immigrants," which means allowing anyone including ISIS to just sally over the border willy-nilly as they please. You believe in traditional marriage and that children should not be denied a mother and father and so you do not "stand with the LGBTQWTF" crowd, even if you have no ill will toward them. Just the fact that you believe children have a right to their biological parents makes you a "hater." You believe in biology and know that chromosomes don't change because you want them to. This makes you "anti-science."
>> My Synagogue has a similar sign; not as obnoxious but same theme. I wonder what they’d say if some Jihadist came in… hold up the sign, say “See, no hate here!”, just before he opens fire. Unfortunately, the local Chabad (much more stringent and likely to be more politically Conservative) is farther enough to be painful to attend. Another take on the same thing:
Don’t let the “all are welcome here” fool you. They don’t mean conservatives. But what’s really telling is how the sign is phrased, as if Republicans don’t value women, or the lives of minorities, etc. The implication, here, is that if you don’t think like leftists, you must hate everyone. And before you’ve even walked into the place for an overpriced coffee, you have been judged not by the content of your character, but by a figment of their imagination. And that goes against everything the civil rights movement taught us.

Powerline - Trump at the U.N. (2)
There is much that could be said, but I think the single most important point to make is that Trump sought to impress on his audience that under his leadership the United States has moved on from the Obama era. He is the unObama. He unashamedly asserts American national sovereignty. He expresses pride in the United States and its Constitution, without qualification or apology.

So the Earth’s temperature “record” has been subjected to endless adjustments and alleged corrections by the very people who are trying to use that record to justify billions of dollars in payments to themselves. In any other context I know of, this is considered corrupt and perhaps felonious.
>> And another quote:
Observation trumps theory. What is extraordinary about our current situation is that the people who created the self-interested and politically-motivated models also control the temperature record, and they have been changing it to make their models, and their entitlement to billions in government grants, look better.
This is, in my opinion, the greatest scandal in the history of science.
** I’ve seen multiple videos where they are open in their long-game plan to demographically swamp the natives, whether in England, Germany, or wherever. Yet the natives are so PC-crippled they don’t – CAN’T – acknowledge it. It’s as if they don’t really think that “little brown people” are as capable and clever, or have even a sliver of a chance of outwitting them. In other words, they’re racists.

Patriot Post - Trump Condemns Racism, but Here's the Real Problem
The reality is that most Americans aren’t racists. Like a scab, the more it’s picked at the more it bleeds and the longer it takes to heal. We’ve been picking at this scab for so long now, one would think that slavery is still happening today in America.
>> The problem is that there is money and political power in continuing the fear of racism. And it’s only in one direction, which means it’s clearly used as a cudgel by one side:

American Spectator - The Pain of the Contemporary American Orthodox Jew
** The more Orthodox a Jew is, the more likely they are to be on the Right – i.e., natural allies with those who love freedom, want smaller government, etc. And yet, who is the target of blog posts from people on the Right? Jews… there was one – I won’t link to it – making fun of an Orthodox Jew wearing a phylactery, a sign of their deep faith in G-d. As I noted in AMERICA STANDS ON THE EDGE OF A KNIFE:
Find allies – even an ally that agrees with you 80% is better than a Communist wannabe who wants to see you dead; put aside petty differences because survival is at stake. There are politically conservative Jews, and Catholics, and Muslims, and Hindus, and so on. Conservatism spans across from whitest-white to darkest-black. There are gay Conservatives, and lots of women Conservatives. Have bad feelings towards anyone like that? GET OVER IT. PUT THOSE FEELINGS ASIDE. The Left understands that if we group based on that 80% criteria, if we set aside our few differences to unite against them, they will lose. And so they practice divide and conquer, setting racial groups against each other, dividing the sexes, hyping intolerance of gays, splitting based on religion… they want us fractured.

These kind of media games can’t be separated from the Antifa streetfighters bent on silencing free speech. Their tactics might differ, but their logic—and their ultimate goal—is the same: to redefine the boundaries of acceptable disagreement in the public square. It goes like this: if Trump is trying to undo Obama-era policies, then he is attacking progressive social values. If he’s attacking progressive social values, he’s basically advocating white supremacy. Therefore, supporting Trump means supporting white supremacy, and it’s okay to attack those white supremacists in Berkeley, or wherever they might gather.
This twisted logic is more widespread on the Left than most people realize. Countering it is the duty of all Americans who think it’s still possible to disagree and yet maintain a functioning republic. That’s why it’s important to insist on free speech and keep staging rallies, even—perhaps especially—in Berkeley.
>> It’s the “Othering” of anyone not of the Hard Left.
