    I think one main point about that is they tend to define racism differently. They only accept racism as a white problem. So they can, without conscience or compunction, call someone else a racist without regarding their own hypocrisy. I'm not even sure most of them know what hypocrisy means.

    hypocrisy-

    noun

    1. the practice of claiming to have moral standards or beliefs to which one's own behavior does not conform; pretense.

    That's how they can virtue signal so freely, and defend the Democrats without any sort of self-correction.

    Yes, they were.

    That is when the racists packed their gear and went to take over the republican party instead.

    Poor Lincoln is still spinning in his grave.

    They don't even think it is racist to consider some people inferior and in need of their special care.

    No, probably not. Conservatives always deny racism despite how apparent it is.
