For the last few years, people on the left have come up with various crazy ways to prevent Trump from remaining president.
This one deserves an award for a special kind of crazy.
A writer named Noah Berlatsky suggests that voting for Trump is not only racist but somehow unconstitutional.
He published his insane theory at NBC News:
Trump voters motivated by racism may be violating the Constitution. Can they be stopped?
If the Trump era has taught us anything, it’s that large numbers of white people in the United States are motivated at least in part by racism in the voting booth. Donald Trump ran an openly racist campaign for president, calling Mexicans rapists and criminals, regularly retweeting white supremacists and at least initially balking at repudiating former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke.
Trump made it clear in his campaign that “Make America Great Again” meant that America was greater when white people’s power was more sweeping and more secure. White voters approved of that message by a whopping 58 percent to 37 percent.
Some politicians deny the evidence, no doubt because they don’t want to alienate white voters, including prejudiced ones. Other commentators try to parse whether Trump’s racism will be a winning strategy in 2020.
Terry Smith, a visiting professor at the University of Baltimore School of Law, offers a different response in his new book, “Whitelash: Unmasking White Grievance at the Ballot Box.” Rather than excuse racist voters or try to figure out how to live with their choices, he argues that racist voting is not just immoral, but illegal. The government, Smith says, has the ability, and the responsibility, to address it.
Do the folks at NBC have any idea how crazy this sounds? Apparently not.

They’re so close to just coming out and saying it. The mask is almost off and the American Left just wants to get it off their chests.
“Trump voters shouldn’t have jobs.”
“Trump voters are racists.”
“Actually, Trump voters should be….” https://t.co/INJ7dMN6E5

Oh, and the writer… Check out his background:
To be fair, the author of the NBC racist-voters-violated-Constitution-by-voting-for-Trump piece is a 'comics expert' and 'cultural critic' whose works include 'Wonder Woman: Bondage and Feminism in the Marston/Peter Comics, 1941-1948.' https://t.co/SMr4CkQOGS
