For years, the liberal media has played along with Democrats accusing people, usually Republicans, of racism. It has become so commonplace that it has lost its meaning.
In short, when everyone is a racist, no one is a racist.
Joe Concha is a media critic who writes at The Hill:
Media cried wolf: Calling every Republican a racist lost its bite
Once upon a time in the world of cable news, a guest or host or anchor calling anyone a racist would have considerable impact.
From what we’ve seen this week, when it comes to that word, those days are long gone. A person simply can’t turn on the news or scroll Twitterfor even more than a minute before hearing the word “racist” or “racism.”
For example, CNN and MSNBC said the word “racist” more than 1,100 times from Sunday to Tuesday, according to a tally conducted by Grabien Media, an online media production and news prep service.
The count, which doesn’t include on-screen graphics commonly known as chyrons, came two days after President Trump in a Sunday tweet said four Democratic congresswomen should “go back” to their home countries. All four congresswomen are U.S. citizens, members of minority groups and three were born in the U.S.
The president, and his GOP allies on Capitol Hill, have underscored that his argument is simply an ideological one based on the four congresswomen, dubbed “the squad.” What he argues is their collective embrace of pro-socialism and therefore anti-American, anti-Israeli anti-Semitic polices.
Concha goes on to point out other examples of the media crying racism over pretty much anything.
Like the moon landing:
America may have put the first man on the moon, but the Soviet Union sent the first woman, the first Asian man, and the first black man into orbit — all years before the U.S. would follow suit https://t.co/DrTZYxvbD7

The culture that put men on the moon was intense, fun, family-unfriendly, and mostly white and male https://t.co/x5vQBuU4IN

People are tired of this.
The media is going to figure that out eventually, but perhaps too late for them.
