We would immediately assume he or she is a bad person. To hate the manifestly good is a sure sign of being bad.</p> <p>Such is the case regarding the left's hatred of The Salvation Army. You don't have to be a Christian &#8212; I am not &#8212; to appreciate the goodness of the people who run and work for The Salvation Army. They devote their lives to helping the poorest, the saddest, the loneliest and the most troubled among us &#8212; completely irrespective of race, gender, transgender identity, faith or no faith. And they do it for almost no money. They do it because of their Christian faith. <p>Updated: Tue Dec 03, 2019</p> 716d6c47cc31badbfb9c7111da35bc55 Fiona Hill Should Be Condemned by Jewish Groups.

Leftists don't only label the half of the country that supports the president "racist," they label all whites and America itself "racist." If your son or daughter attends or recently attended an American university, it is close to certain he or she was repeatedly told that America and all whites are racist.
