A black Republican candidate for U.S. Congress from Colorado said that he was called a vile name at a pro-ICE rally he attended Monday.

“I was at this ICE rally today with [Michelle Malkin] and was called Nigger by the Democrats protesting! They are very creative with names from their racist past!” Casper Stockham said.

Stockham is running for Congress in Colorado’s 6th District, currently held by Rep. Jason Crow (D). Malkin and former Republican Congressman Tom Tancredo rallied in support of ICE in Aurora, Colorado on Labor Day after the ICE facility there was subject to a terrorist attack at the hands of Antifa, including an anti-ICE rally in which the U.S. flag was taken down and replaced with a Mexican flag.

Stockham is a grassroots Republican candidate.

“The world of politics has devolved to the point where more often than not ONLY the rich and powerful have a voice. We will enact and monitor initiatives that give a voice, a platform and a remedy to those who have had no voice,” his campaign website says. ​

His top issues are reducing homelessness, ensuring veterans they have the services they need, and facilitating the creation of jobs in his district.

“I am running for Congress because I am tired of the lying, cheating, stealing and backroom deals that seem to always exclude the inner city and rural communities. I will listen to and serve all of CD6, not just the people who agree with or vote for me,” his site says.

The far-left, in its fervor and hatred for President Donald J. Trump and the causes Trump has championed – like closed borders – has turned into everything it claims to hate. They are avowedly “anti-racist,” at least according to them, but stories such as Stockham’s are common.

At an August rally in Portland, Oregon, Antifa “protestors” called black police officers “coon,” “Uncle Tom,” and “race-traitor.” That doesn’t sound like anti-racism. In fact, it sounds markedly like the racism of Jim Crow and segregationist America.

Former sports anchor turned political commentator (but really, what’s the difference these days) Jemele Hill, a black woman, has been slammed as “racist” over the past few days for a piece she wrote in The Atlantic instructing black athletes to leave what she called “white colleges.” Nothing says “anti-racism” like open support for segregation.

And that’s sort of the crux of the story. It’s a political tactic that has been employed by the political left for decades – part of the Saul Alinsky school of politics. “Accuse others of that which you are doing yourself” is a tried and true Democrat tactic.

So, rest assured that when they call you a racist, they are themselves likely engaging in racist behavior. All this to say, it’s unsurprising to see the political left engaged in such behavior.

They’re worse than racists.

To them, if you disagree, they will treat you as though you are subhuman – less worthy of life – simply because you might be slightly further right than them. The least of the punishments faced for that crime is being called a racist name, like Stockham was.

If you’re truly unlucky, they might punch you for being a “Nazi.”
