Dear Mr. Preston Mitchum: Be Precise In Your Speech

Wonderfully expressed, reprehensible words from Preston D. Mitchum: “I won’t empathize with, support, forgive, understand, make amends for, reconcile with Trump supporters. Not a single one,” tweeted Preston Mitchum, a liberal community organizer in Washington, D.C. “He was a proud white nationalist who proudly raised up many white supremacists. That’s who supported him. And I make no apologies for saying this.”

First, this man desires to play group identity politics by categorizing all Trump supporters as racists, and it wasn’t because we voted for pro life and against the tyrannical reign of the radical left and the ideology that possesses them, among other things.

This same group identity politics can be used against Mr. Mitchum by stating that all Biden supporters are baby killers and Marxists. And yet, anyone with any common sense and that is not possessed by corrupted ideology, can properly conclude that this statement is inaccurate, as so is the statement that all Trump supporters are racists.

Second, when stating that you will never forgive nor reconcile with a Trump supporter due to their views is not only hate speech in and of itself, but is also racist, as the comment is specifically addressed to white supporters. From a so called believer in inclusiveness, this man is so far from his “belief” that I am not sure he knows what he actually believes in. My advice for him and everyone alike-be precise in your speech.
