    Look at the repeated mentions about false claims of racism from the linked article:

    I was one of those Democrats who considered anyone who voted for Trump a racist… But when I witnessed the amount of hate coming from the left in this small, niche knitting community, I started to question everything. I started making a proactive effort to break my echo chamber by listening to voices I thought I would disagree with… How is it possible that half the country is overtly racist? Is it possible that Trump derangement syndrome is a real thing, and had I been suffering from it for the past three years?… these were not bad people. They were not racists, nazis, or white supremacists… I’ve seen almost every Democratic candidate in person and noticed that their messages were almost universally one of doom and gloom… making sure to emphasize that the country is a horribly racist place

    And contrary to all the fears expressed, they were so nice. I was not harassed or intimidated, and I was never in fear of my safety even for a moment. These were average, everyday people. They were veterans, schoolteachers, and small business owners who had come from all over the place for the thrill of attending this rally.. the Democrats, they emphasized that the country was a racist place from top to bottom

    These false claims may have worked when there were one or two newspapers to read and three broadcast TV networks to watch. Fortunately this is not the case today.

    It turns out that Americans may not like to be lectured by the elites and told (falsely) that they and half the country are racist. Eventually these Americans might realize that if the elites are lying about racism, they may be lying about other things. Maybe President Trump isn’t that bad. Maybe the Second Amendment isn’t that bad. Etc.

    We should welcome the author, Karlyn Borysenko, to the dissident right.
