Republican Senator Susan Collins recently got in trouble with the Cancel America media for defending the people of Maine as not racist. “ I do not believe systemic racism is a problem in the state of Maine,” she said, adding that “we are very fortunate in the state of Maine because we have terrific members of law enforcement.”
Her statements sparked a response from her challenger, Democratic Senate nominee Sara Gideon. “It doesn’t matter how white our state is — [systemic racism] still exists,” she said, ignoring how insulting this is to the people of Maine.
It’s sad that America has become a place where Senator Collins defending her constituents as not racist is a national news controversy among those who want to Cancel America – even though she tried to appear moderate by conceding other points in their favor. But the Cancel America crowd “brutally punishes apostates” as AmericaIsGood.us founder Tom Klingenstein said, if they step even the slightest bit out of line.
This Cancel America crowd wants to convince us that America is racist at its core. People who believe America is Good object to this notion. “The divide is between those who think America is bad, or systemically racist, and those who think America is Good…[or] systemically just,” said Klingenstein. The Cancel America crowd wants to convince us that America was founded on slavery and discrimination. But people who believe America is Good know it was founded on race-blind principles of equality, and slavery was a human corruption of those principles.
Klingenstein urges Americans to recognize the Cancel America movement for what it really is, praising such moves as Trump’s Executive Order against racist “white privilege” trainings. As he told PJ Media yesterday, “The President deserves credit for standing up against this deeply entrenched industry and for standing up for America’s systemically just traditions of race-blind equality of opportunity and individual liberty — that all Americans are equal under the law.”
