Yesterday I wrote a post titled, “The Supreme Court Nomination Debate Will Consist of Republicans Being Called Racists.”
I got it in a few hours before the live show actually began.
“Right-wing commentators spread hate — and hypocrisy — on Biden’s upcoming Supreme Court pick,” Media Matters for America shrieked. One blog went even better with, “THE SUPREME COURT NOMINEE IS A NI[CLANG]!”
At PJ Media, Matt Margolis satirically wrote, “Biden’s Supreme Court Pick Sexually Assaulted Me 25 Years Ago.”
“I can tell you right now, whoever Biden picks, they sexually assaulted me 25 years ago at a high school party.”
These days, reality always beats satire over the head and leaves it bleeding in a ditch. That’s why I hardly bother writing it anymore.
The real-world takeaway is accusing Republicans of racism against a nominee who hasn’t even been picked yet.
Why bother waiting until there’s an actual nominee to churn out the usual Republicans are Racist clickbait that we’ll be hearing for the worse part of a month, when you can jump the gun and declare that Republicans are already racially discriminating against a racially selected nominee.
