Philadelphia Inquirer fashion writer: Melania Trump’s white dress racist

Melania Trump's white dress called racistFor liberals, everything is racist.  Last Tuesday, Elizabeth Wellington, fashion writer for the Philadelphia Inquirer, actually claimed that Melania Trump’s white dress was — wait for it — racist.

After praising the dress and noting that Mrs. Trump looked “absolutely stunning,” she wrote:

So while Trump appeared flawless on the Cleveland stage Monday night, whether she intended it or not, her all-white ensemble displayed the kind of foreignness that is accepted by her husband’s political party. To many, that outfit could be another reminder that in the G.O.P. white is always right.

Say what?

She wasn’t finished:

Four years ago, Republicans fretted about trying to diversify their base, in the wake of Barack Obama’s clear voter mandate. This time around, with Trump at the top of the ticket, it’s obvious that ship has sailed. On Monday night, Melania Trump was a not-so-subliminal billboard for what’s looking like the Trumpian view of an ideal America.

And if that’s the fashion statement she intended to make, it’s a very scary one.

What’s really scary is that this writer actually tried to tie Melania Trump’s dress to racism.  Scarier still, a lot of low-information liberals will buy it.

Jeff Dunetz wondered:  “Allow me to ask an important question,’what the hell is this lady taking about?'”

Good question.  He added:

First, the GOP has never been about “White is always right.” In fact, it is the Democratic Party with a history of fighting against every advancement in civil rights since slavery. Ms. Wellington shouldn’t make charges without offering evidence, although she would not be able to prove her case because it’s false.

Apparently, he observed, Michelle Obama was also celebrating racism when she wore this at the 2009 inaugural ball:

I did a quick search and found a few other things that could be considered racist.

Like this photo of snow in Southern California:

More stupidity from liberals on Orlando. Now they want to ban white Americans from America.Liberals — ya gotta love ’em…
