I see the right has been reduced to employing the favorite wife beater defense of, "if you hadn't made me so angry I wouldn't have beaten you so badly." 

jfc, these people garbage.

But what Tapper didn't explain at any point was that the man who yelled "white power" was only taunting a man already yelling at him, over and over again, calling him a racist.

In the video, you see a line of golf carts like a mini-parade, and they have pro-Trump signs on them. On the sidelines are Trump detractors yelling "Racist!" at all of the carts passing by. And so one of them yells back, "Yeah? White power! White power!"


Um....so all better?

No, no, you misheard him. He was saying, "WHITE FLOUR!" Just another quarantine baker frustrated by the lack of King Arthur at the store, nothing to see here.

Pretty sure the guy was mocking saying it in response to the other protester calling him a white supremacist and mocking him over it. But whatever.

I know this isn't going to go down well here, but that was my take on the video. The guy was being sarcastic in response to being called a racist.

That said:
1) He supports Trump, so he is a racist.
2) It's still not a good look that Trump retweeted it.

I don't see the problem here: the guy is clearly just a big fan of the actor who played 'Urkle' on the sitcom 'Family Matters'.

Ah yes, because the best way to show you're NOT racist is to chant "White Power!" repeatedly. What, was it too difficult to shout, "I can't be racist, my best friend is black?"
 
6 days ago  
Yeah, that excuse might work if this was an isolated incident, if Trump was known for (Real) minority outreach, and for condemning the racists who support him. Instead, the closest he comes to denouncing the racist , white supremacist types who support him is to wait until nobody cares anymore, and then give a lukewarm denunciation that nobody in their right mind actually believes. It also doesn't help that his racist behavior goes back almost 50 years.

The author is correct in his analysis of the golf man's intent.

But to then make the argument that makes it ok for the president to retweet?

That's cuckoo bananas.

This really is a good time to make note of all the opinion writers who will simply write anything to fill space and defend "their side" without regard to reality. There are just so many instances where there really is only one answer but someone manages to come to a different conclusion.

Protip: Jokes are funny. If it wasn't funny it wasn't a joke. If I yell "you're racist" at a racist, and the racist yells back "white power" that's not funny and therefore not a joke.

God you libs just see racism in everything. Now you're saying "white power" is racist too?

Mocking someone calling you a white supremacist by proving them right is a bold strategy.

"It was obviously intended as a rejoinder to the man calling him a racist simply for supporting the president. It doesn't appear to be a declaration of his fealty to the Ku Klux Klan, ..."

Voting for trump is a declaration of fealty to the KKK.  You can always depend upon a republican to lie.

Yeah, White Power is a really funny and ironic rejoinder. Also really amusing is Heil Hitler, 14 words, and Arbeit Macht Frei.

Meh, i watched the video and it's a bunch of old people being really rude to each other. I could see him shouting back 'white power' as a taunt, and him not actually meaning it. I'm sure he's a detestable old conservative asshole, but there were people shouting 'fark trump' and people already calling them 'racists'. I can't say that the video is absolute proof that they're they were actual racists. "Stickin it to the Libs" takes many forms, so it's possible he felt shouting 'white power' was the shortest route to that goal, and it actually worked on a national level.

It doesn't matter how much we feel someone is actually racist if they themselves don't believe that they're racist. So calling someone "something they're not" feels hollow to them, because they don't think that's them, and no amount of shouting it is going to change that.

This is so true. The liberal media won't report it, but thankfully the Washington Examiner is on the case. The libs make me so angry. Why just the other day one of those scumbags called me a Nazi! I was livid! I was so upset that I put on the SS uniform I just happened to have hanging in my closet (for historical preservation reasons) and grabbed the Nazi flag I just happened to have hanging on my wall (also for historical preservation reasons). Then I went goose-stepping down the street while waving the flag and screaming "Heil HItler." Let me tell you, that gets tiring really quickly. AND I WOULD NEVER HAVE DONE IT IF THAT COMMIE PINKO LIB HADN'T CALLED ME A NAZI! When will libs start to take responsibility for their actions?

I do think the trash shouting "white power" was being sarcastic to taunt the anti-Trump people but I would not bet on it. It is however undeniable that Trump sharing that video shows he is not fit to manage a dollar store, much less be President of a nation.

What does it matter as to WHY he said it?  He said it, on camera, and didn't feel any hesitation in doing so.

Death camps are already open. If people don't die, they're tortured, deprived of basic needs, and sold into trafficking.

No. Those are the lies they tell decent people. They don't tell themselves those lies. They are openly proud of their bigotry within their own circles, which is why they get caught out in these rallys. They feel safe letting it out in their safe space.

A smart person would have yelled back "Black lives matter!" and taken the wind out of the counterprotesters' sails.

That they can't even say "Black lives matter" sarcastically is pretty darn telling.

Also, they're not smart.
