SALON: Trump Supporters Who Reject Political Correctness Are Like WHITE SUPREMACISTS
A writer at Salon would like you to know that if you reject political correctness, like Donald Trump, or in any other way resemble a Republican, you’re pretty much a racist.

The shocking new right-wing revolt: How conservatives, anti-choicers and white supremacists turned on “political correctness”
If you want to know why congressional Republicans are falling apart, look no further the latest comments from Rep. Richard Hanna, a Republican from New York, about the endless Benghazi hearings. Speaking to radio host Bill Keller, Hanna conceded that Rep. Kevin McCarthy was speaking the truth when he admitted that the hearings are about driving down Hillary Clinton’s poll numbers, despite all the disingenuous posturing about truth and justice that is generally used to justify what has now gone on longer than the Watergate hearings while producing nothing of importance.
“This may not be politically correct, but I think that there was a big part of this investigation that was designed to go after people and an individual, Hillary Clinton,” Hanna said.
It was a strange choice of words. “Politically correct” is a phrase conservatives use to demonize liberal efforts to stigmatize open expressions of bigotry. “It may not be politically correct to say so” is the phrase you usually hear right before someone says something overtly racist, sexist, or homophobic. It’s not usually used to refer to Republican efforts to hide the partisan nature of the fake scandals they generate to tarnish the reputations of Democrats and liberals…
It’s clear why Republican leadership might not want people to hear that the anti-choice movement, at its core, is about trying to end the practice of sex for pleasure. But this is the Donald Trump screw-it era, so it’s no surprise to see people like Miller let the truth leak out. It must feel like a real moment of unburdening yourself.
A similar thing is going on with race, as white supremacists are increasingly pushing back against conservative efforts to silence them.
