2020 Democratic candidate for president, Seth Moulton, took a rather unique approach to solicit votes at a town hall meeting on Sunday – telling Americans that they’re racist.
Moulton, the Representative from Massachusetts, was discussing the need for a Voting Rights Act when he painted the entire country as racist. He even went so far as to use failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, who lost her election by over 54,000 votes, as an example.
“We have a problem with racism in America today,” he claimed without evidence. “If this country wasn’t racist, Stacey Abrams would be governor.”
The absolute precision Moulton had in shooting himself in the foot is a thing to behold. Two sentences – two claims that America is racist, and one claim that the entire state of Georgia is a shining example of racism.

Many on the left will likely nod their head in approval – you can hear the cheers in the crowd at the CNN event – but we’re guessing a good portion of voters won’t take kindly to being painted with a broad brush of racism.
“People of color are being systemically denied the most basic right in a democracy, which is the right to vote,” Moulton added.
America Was Never That Great
Moulton than made a claim that, contrary to President Trump’s belief that America is the greatest country in the world, that it was never really that great to begin with.
“I think this is the most important election of our lifetimes,” he said, despite the 2016 election actually holding that status.
“It’s about who we are as a country, it’s about our values, it’s about what kind of future we’re going to build. It’s about whether we can get united around a common mission not to make America great again, looking backwards to some mythical version of the past that never really existed, but whether we can make America better than it’s ever been before,” Moulton added.

Saying America was never great is such a common stance in the Democrat party right now that we have to wonder if their internal polling is telling them that this is something their radical leftist base wants to hear.
Abrams Didn’t Lose Due to Racism
It should be noted that Abrams never lost her race due to racism, she lost her race due to her radical policies.
- She is open to allowing illegal immigrants the right to vote.
- She wanted Georgians to pay higher taxes, even saying it is necessary.
- She criticized the agricultural and hospitality industries, saying they weren’t worth working in as an employee.
- She wants President Trump impeached.
- She supports socialism.
Georgia voters rejected that line of thinking and delivered her a sizable defeat, despite Abrams best efforts to claim she secretly won.

I’m in Georgia and Stacy Abrams lost the election not because of racism but because the people in Georgia were smart enough to see that it was her policies that we didn’t want. For instance, she wanted to destroy all the civil war statues including removing the largest carving on Stone Mountain, a memorial to three heroes of the Confederacy, Confederate President Jefferson Davis, and Generals Robert E. Lee and Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson. Who the heck did she think she was kidding? She’s the racist!
The reason liberal Democrats make everything a race issue is simple. They have nothing, so they jump immediately to ad hominem attacks. Their followers eat it up, and spew the same nonsense on every forum.
No, she didn’t get elected, because people did not forget what Obama did to the entire country! She was a stupid hack that never intended to be a governor, she wanted someone else to blame for her failing career!!!! Instead of good job, that was a tough battle, she says, I didn’t lose, my states racist and the election was rigged! Georgia people are dumb, let’s get ILLEGAL people to vote for me.
It is time for MAJOR voter ID laws. I mean IF, you want to vote, you go to your polling location, full out a form, they take your picture, they make a certified numbered ID and THEN you’re allowed to vote! If you can’t get to your polling stations, you make a phone call and they come to you and make your ID ON THE SPOT!!!! When it’s time to vote, every person entering is counted and at the end of the day, what’s on the Talley better match or the vote is contested!!! Also numbers are verified by 2 opposing people! NO cheating and No more of this fake crap anymore, MAKE IT IMPOSSIBLE!!!!
“WHY do the Dems have to make EVERYTHING a “race issue?”
Because that is ALL they have. Well, that and their INSANE HATRED of Pres. Trump. They have NO platform, NO policies to present, or ANY idea how electing THEM would make anything better for ANYBODY. (Indeed, it is a CERTAINTY it would make things a great deal worse for EVERYBODY!) So what else can they DO but constantly throw that dog-eared, worn-out, OVER-USED “race card?”
Note to Dems: OBAMA flat wore that thing OUT. Ya’ll need a new THANG! :D
@sethmoulton should know about this country’s racism problem, his party created it then revived it when we were almost over it in 1964 with LBJ’s Great Society. As this shows, until LBJ’s Democrat Party took the lead, we were doing a good job. MAGA, vote out Democratic Racism in 2020.
In that case thank the good lord for racism….
She didn’t win because she didn’t have the skill set. She only came close because she was black.
Seth Moulton doesn’t like America. Seth Moulton doesn’t like himself. Who the heck is Seth Moulton?
Stacy bag a doughnuts Abrams is whining away at voter fraud and being robbed of the Georgia election. Playing the Hillary card. The truth is that Georgia was flooded with out of state liberal money and voters in the continuing effort to change Georgia from red to blue. As per usual with socialists it is other people’s money that buys votes.
Abrams would not be elected to anything even if she herself wasn’t racist.
Most of the worst racists left are in the Democrat Party. They cynically use false accusations of racism to advance themselves politically. Racism is ignorance. Using race for personal advantage is far worse. Dems are keeping african Americans weak and dependent and convinced they can’t do things for themselves. That was Lyndon Johnson’s plan way back when.
If Stacey Abrams wasn’t a whiny racist, she still isn’t qualified for a Governors job !
The main reason this big loud mouth didn’t win is because there are more smart people in Georgia that there are dumb ones. Georgia don’t want to be under the Socialist program that the liberals are promoting any more than any reasonable state, not New York or Calif.
Having lived in GA at the time, Abrams’ loss was totally due to her platform that hurt every working American citizen in GA. higher taxes AND illegals voting! Everyone I know (all races, all working citizens) voted for Kemp…they would have voted for Mickey Mouse rather than Abrams. So, your baked that pie, Sister, now enjoy it!!
ROFLMAO!! She LOST because she wasn’t the person for the job.. just look at her agenda and see that she is NOT about America; but just about herself and HER racist ideology!
Gender or color doesn’t make any difference, but you are tragically misinformed if you think that is Communism. Have you ever read the history and how close the Plymouth Colony came to abject failure?
. . .to clarify for CW, the end result is the same!
No, that is what Communists CLAIM to believe, CyanWrench. But that is just a LIE designed to con people into voting them into power. Like Ayn Rand said, “Communism is imposed by FORCE. Socialism is imposed by vote. The only difference between them is the difference between MURDER and SUICIDE.”
What ever happened to the Idea,” The best person for the Position”? Not because of Gender or Race, that is Communism at its best!
Race relations in America were at their best, not perfect, but doing better until Obama who used every opportunity to divide the races. “Racism” will continue as long as people like this are in office.
All goes back to the dumocrats end game(RACE CARD).If the dumocrat is Black and you don’t vote for him or her,you are a racist??qualifications don’t count just race.Even if white people vote for a candidate who is white,they are branded racist. REALLY.DUMOCRATS BETTER GET THERE HEADS OUT FROM UP THERE RECTUMUSES? The American people vote for the best person,THE MOST QUALIFIED CANDIDATE.
Yes, I think he got a lot of those kinds of votes. Ironically, he’s the biggest racist of them all. Hates cops, hates white people, hates this country, for that matter!
Well, maybe, but I know a lot of people who voted for him and when I asked why, many say they wanted to prove to the world that the US was not a racist country.
MASSIVE voter fraud, Bruce A. Frank. They tried it AGAIN with Hillary, but she is SO corrupt, dishonest and UNLIKABLE that she could not even win an election that was RIGGED in her favor! She considers herself a VASTLY superior being, and has NOTHING but contempt for us “regular” people, and she is NOT very good at hiding that contempt behind that big, phony SMILE she had pasted on her face all through the campaign.You notice she did as LITTLE in-person campaigning as possible? That’s because, (a) She HATES having to mingle with us COMMON people and (b) us COMMON people can sense the CONTEMPT lurking just beneath that phony smile, when she has to deal with us in person. THAT is why she lost. NOT because Trump committed ANY crime, including “Russian collusion!”
There were many many illegals and homeless people that needed money so they voted how the Dem’s told them to. If the voting was not rigged then Ovomit would never been elected especially the 2nd time.
Because us dumb ass’s were stupid
Wow, I wonder how Obama EVER got elected. . .TWICE!
People of color are being systemically denied the most basic right in a democracy, which is the right to vote,” Moulton added.
In what state…is this true? The answer…not a single one. Blacks, Asians, Hispanics…and everyone in between all vote in our country…and have for a very, very long time.
This is the constant lies the democrats use to keep blacks ignorant of the truth… Upper-income whites, who act as if they are the savior to the black race…are so ignorant and racist…that they actually want this to be true…It is what they all teach their “woke” children.. Who cares if it is all lies…as long as democrats can use it to remain in office.
The only person that is racist is Abrams ,do we have to call the WAMBULANCE ? Let it go Hillary!
Just the color of their politics. Red…or the new Red, Green!
PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN!
And I am FREE to cast my vote without worrying about the color of the candidate’s skin.
