To the Editor: The claims that the famous presidential tweets are racist show that the Left continues to tear words from their meanings. The Left has redefined the term “fascist” from one who is an adherent of the political and economic philosophy of Benito Mussolini to “a person we don’t like.”

Similarly, the term “racist” means someone who denigrates another because of the person’s racial or ethnic status. The Left is now attempting to redefine “racist” to mean: “someone we don’t like.”

As I understand it, the presidential tweets did not refer to the race or ethnicity of anyone. Nor did the tweets even refer to anyone by name; rather, the tweets referred to those who insulted our country or who claimed that America was evil. The Left’s linkage of the tweets to several Congresswomen shows that even the Left admits that those Congresswomen have repeatedly denigrated our country.

As the President’s tweets are based on the political content of those he attacks, the tweets are proper political comment, not racism.
