Left panics that Trump could undo systemic racism against Whites

The former president’s plan to tackle “the only current accepted racism in America” triggered institutional alarm bells while supporters suggested it was “About damn time.”

After denying at length that Marxist ideologies like critical race theory were being pushed in government-run schools and had rooted themselves throughout all levels of American corporations, narrative nudgers appeared troubled by a threat to their preferred discriminatory frameworks.

Monday, Axios national political correspondent Alex Thompson, who’d previously been contracted for a book about President Joe Biden’s term, explored the intent and current efforts of former President Donald Trump and allies to do away with policies considered discriminatory against white people.

Framed as a shift from the intent of Civil Rights, Axios contended if Trump were re-elected, he and “close allies want to dramatically change the government’s interpretation of Civil Rights-era laws to focus on ‘anti-white racism’ rather than discrimination against people of color.”

“President Trump is committed to weeding out discriminatory programs and racist ideology across the federal government,” Trump spokesperson Steven Cheung had said. “By contrast, Joe Biden has continued to push unlawful civil rights abuses by weaponizing every tool of the government to advance Marxism and Communism. As President Trump has said, all staff, offices and initiatives connected to Biden’s un-American policy will be immediately terminated.”

In drumming up the doom for DEI proponents, the report looked at former White House senior advisor Stephen Miller’s America First Legal (AFL), which focuses on using the legal system to “defend our citizens from unconstitutional executive overreach” and “from attacks by anyone, in any party, who would seek to attack their freedom, their dignity, and their equal rights under the law.”

Thompson cited cases from AFL where the Civil Rights Act of 1964 had been referenced in showing how corporations like CBS, Paramount Global and the NFL had allegedly discriminated against white people, like the football leagues “Rooney Rule” which mandated teams interview two minority candidates when filling a vacancy in leadership positions.

Also called out was the Heritage Foundation’s “Project 2025,” a plan proposed in part by former Trump Justice Department official Gene Hamilton, AFL’s general counsel Thomspon detailed, that sought to end “affirmative discrimination.”

MSNBC’s Joy Reid had previously blown her top over the advancement of the plan as she contended it would “give [Trump] all sorts of dictatorial powers” before denigrating Miller as “the white nationalist Dracula behind draconian and cruel Trump immigration policies like the Muslim ban and separating immigrant children from their families and putting them in cages. That Stephen Miller has even more disgusting, racist immigration plans for a second Trump term.”

Author Bruce Bartlett piled on and shared his own writing from 2016 where he had argued in part, “Reverse racism’ is a phenomenon where whites believe that they are as discriminated against or even more discriminated against because of their race than blacks or other racial minorities.”

Meanwhile, others clearly saw that breaking down a system that allowed for the picking of winners and losers as opposed to a meritocracy was long overdue.
