Democrat Media Are Horrified At Trump’s Plan To End Federal Racial Discrimination

Trump plans to reverse federal agencies’ practices of using antidiscrimination laws to discriminate against white people, Axios reported.

Sixty years after the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, Democrats have turned that law on its head, co-opting it as a license for reverse racial discrimination in the name of “equity.” And Democrat media are horrified at the news that former President Donald Trump plans to redirect the federal government to apply the law according to its initial, colorblind letter, should he win the White House.

Trump plans to reverse the government’s current interpretation of the Civil Rights Act that has permitted federal agencies to discriminate against white people, Axios reported.

“As President Trump has said, all staff, offices, and initiatives connected to Biden’s un-American policy will be immediately terminated,” Trump campaign spokesman Steven Cheung told Axios.

“President Trump is committed to weeding out discriminatory programs and racist ideology across the federal government,” Cheung said, according to Axios. Cheung did not respond to The Federalist’s request for comment by publication time.

Rolling Stone fretted that Trump’s reported plans would “protect white people” from discrimination. MSNBC derisively used the word “plot” to describe Trump’s efforts, inviting notorious race-baiter Al Sharpton on the air to claim Trump wants to “reverse” the civil rights movement.

The 1964 Civil Rights Act prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, or national origin. It was designed to end racial discrimination in America, but Democrats have instead twisted the law to justify such discrimination, excluding white Americans from opportunities while perpetuating their soft bigotry of low expectations for racial minorities.

As Axios’ Alex Thompson noted, a federal judge recently ruled that the Commerce Department’s Minority Business Development Agency program that was “dedicated exclusively to minority business enterprise” was discriminatory. Three white business owners were denied the chance to even apply for aid from the department because only so-called “disadvantaged” racial minorities were eligible. The business owners successfully argued the agency was discriminating on the basis of race or ethnicity.

Meanwhile a federal judge blocked the Biden administration in 2021 from making loan “forgiveness” payments to nonwhite farmers after a white farmer alleged in a lawsuit that the program violated the equal protection clause.

“[The program’s] rigid, categorical, race-based qualification for relief is the antithesis of flexibility,” Judge Marcia Morales Howard ruled. “The debt relief provision applies strictly on racial grounds irrespective of any other factor. Every person who identifies him or herself as falling within a socially disadvantaged group who has a qualifying farm loan with an outstanding balance as of January 1, 2021, receives up to 120 percent debt relief — and no one else receives any debt relief.”

Instead of looking at how deserving an individual and his specific set of circumstances may be, these programs prejudge a person’s eligibility based on skin color.

The Supreme Court found this type of discrimination unconstitutional last June when it ruled 6-3 that affirmative action policies violate the 14th Amendment. Students for Fair Admissions filed suit against Harvard and the University of North Carolina, alleging their race-based admissions policies violated the Civil Rights Act and the equal protection clause.

“Many universities have for too long wrongly concluded that the touchstone of an individual’s identity is not challenges bested, skills built, or lessons learned, but the color of their skin,” Chief Justice John Roberts wrote for the majority. “This Nation’s constitutional history does not tolerate that choice.”

That type of choosing based on race is how the Supreme Court ended up with Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson and how Kamala Harris ended up one 81-year-old heartbeat away from the presidency.

“I commit that if I’m elected President and I have an opportunity to appoint someone to the courts, I’ll appoint the first black woman to the Court,” then-candidate Joe Biden said during an interview. “If I’m elected President … I commit that I will in fact pick a woman to be Vice President.”

But skin color alone doesn’t make a person qualified. (Just ask anyone in Texas whether Border Czar Harris has helped stem the flow of illegal immigration.)

Americans should have the confidence that their political leaders are chosen based on their individual capabilities and merit, not based on secondary traits like race. And they should have confidence they themselves will be judged on their own merits, not skin color, too.
