Racism is the default defense mechanism of the Left.
This is one reason that I did not want a Hillary Clinton Presidency. There would have been zero room for criticism of the Queen of Chaos.
If Hillary had been elected and caused World War III, any criticism leveled at Hillary would have been met with accusations of misogyny. It had already started during the Democratic Primaries. The “Bernie Bros” all hated women according to the Hillary Echo Chamber.
The Left cannot help themselves. They cannot take criticism. They believe themselves to be incapable of mistakes. Any and all criticism must most assuredly come from a place of hate for a persons race, gender or sex.
If the Democrats ran a Muslim for POTUS, he could enact an executive order mandating that all women wear the hijab. Anyone who objected would be branded an Islamophobe.
