(JustPatriots.com)- Republican South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham really upset Democrats during his Fox News interview On Sunday with Chris Wallace, when he simply stated that systemic racism doesn’t exist in the United States.
Pointing out this simple fact is enough to get you canceled and hounded these days.
“No, not in my opinion,” he said about the existence of so-called “systemic racism.”
“We just elected a two-term African-American president; the vice president is of Africa-American and Indian descent. So our systems are not racist,” he said. “America is not a racist country. Within every society, you have bad actors. The Chauvin trial was a just result.”
Graham offered a sensible solution for police reform, adding that “qualified immunity is a very big deal.”
“If you want to destroy policing in America make sure every cop can be sued when they leave the house,” he said. “So there’s a way to find qualified immunity reform, take the cop out of it. You sue the department rather than the officer if there’s an allegation of civil rights abuse or constitutional rights abuse.”
Graham said that the problem could be solved if both parties were willing to discuss it.
And soon after making these perfectly sensible recommendations, Graham was attacked by far-left activists and commentators online.
Novelist Paul Rudnick went as far as suggesting that Graham is a member of the Ku Klux Klan, which is not true and has never been true.
“Lindsey Graham says there’s no racism in America because Barack Obama and Kamala Harris were elected,” he wrongly claimed, confusing Graham’s suggestion that systemic racism doesn’t exist.
Graham explicitly said that racism does exist in America by noting that there are bad actors in every society.
So Rudnick was wrong there.
“He’s also said that POC wouldn’t have any problems if they behaved like white Republican men. But sometimes it’s hard to hear him through the white good,” Rudnick claimed.

Vox reporter Aaron Rupar complained about Graham, too.

But what exactly did he say wrong?
Graham offered a sensible solution and admitted that racism does exist, but systemic racism does not.
Go against the far-left grain, and expect to be called a member of the KKK…
