That's the best you've got? From the article."If you are politically on the left, racism is what you accuse people who don't agree with you.
Horse manure for the hyperbolic broad brush. I don't know about the left, but my whole life I've only used it against racists, you know, like the racist-in-chief. I agree with this basic principle: If you support and defend a racist, like the racist-in-chief, and make light of his bigotry then yeah, you're a racist.
I agree that the word is being overused. That said, if the shoe fits, as it does with Donnie Dickhead, .... ,
Exactly, of course it's being overused, the word "awesome" is overused, but somethings are awesome (ie total eclipse of the sun) and some people racists. No opinion piece in the WSJ can change that.
