You may have heard it before: America has a racism problem.
In particular, it seems the Klan has made a comeback.
And Hitler’s here all over again.
That appears to be the word on the street.
Or at least on TV.
To hear many in politics tell it, if white supremacy were a stock, it’d be shootin’ through the roof.
Do you know some of these people — those who believe the Aryan race is exceptional?
They’re reportedly hiding in plain sight.
And on Sunday, Republican New Rep. York Lee Zeldin said they’re going to keep being spotlighted.
At least every two years.
According to Lee, allegations of racism have become the electoral approach of choice for Democrats.
Speaking on Fox News program Sunday Morning Futures, he indicated Democrats are — as of late — laying it on thick.
They’re making moves in a variety of ways — and with a flare for the dramatic.
For example, Lee has a theory: The Donkey Party’s keeping fences at the Capitol as an arrow pointing to the treachery of Trump:
“They have no problem with that labeling, and here they want people to ask themselves, ‘Why is there still barbed wire around the Capitol?’ And they say, ‘Well, let me tell you about all the people that voted for Donald Trump. And what happened inside the Capitol on January 6th.’ That’s what I think it’s about.”
Your actions call for the title, America agrees.

He even called the National Guard — still stationed in Washington — a “prop”:
“At this point, it feels like it’s about props, politics, and power. There’s a narrative that Democrats want to push about Jan. 6, and it representing 75 million voters of Donald Trump.”
Democrats certainly aren’t displaying particular restraint.
As you know, on January 13th, the House voted to impeach Trump for a second time.
The last one involved stealing the election on behalf of Russia; this time around, it’s insurrection.
Meanwhile, Nancy Pelosi told reporters last week Congress is currently threatened by an “enemy within.”
She wasn’t likely referring to the House Democratic Caucus.
The Speaker said there’s great need for supplemental security, given “members of Congress that want to bring guns on the floor and have threatened violence on other members of Congress.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said lawmakers would likely need more funding for security to protect them not just from outside threats, but also potentially from their own colleagues, whom she described as ‘the enemy within’ https://t.co/aPSyvvEMfO pic.twitter.com/jRYqHMekdz

If she’s right, something certainly needs to be done.
As for racism, Lee seems sure America will continue to get informed — each election cycle
“Every two years when there’s House races, they’ll call opponents white supremacists, extremists, Nazis.”
