When President Donald Trump says he wants to secure the border to protect Americans, the Left calls that a “dog whistle.” When they say, “dog whistle,” what they mean is that you are an animal — an obedient animal who has been waiting for permission from your “master” to participate in something cruel, something subhuman. In this case, they are calling you the dog of a racist.
This is the perfect example of the kind of thing conservatives should have made a MUCH bigger deal out of when the Left first started doing it. They are calling us bloody-minded, obedient animals while at the same time making the most bad-faith interpretation of a claim. But rather than stand up for ourselves, we just repeat “we’re not racist.”
They know we are not racist, and they don’t care. This is all about fighting for the votes of the ill-informed CNN viewer. No. Conservatives think for themselves. We are individualist-minded, liberty-loving protectors of free speech, the right to self-preservation, and respect for the fact that the individual is made in the image of God.
The Left are the real bloody-minded animals. Theirs is the political movement that has killed hundreds of millions and it includes communism as well as fascism. They are the party of MORE government and more government always kills more people. We are the party of less government and less government always kills less.
So if you want to talk about dog whistles, let’s talk about Leftist talking points.
