“Not all Republicans are racists, but all racists are Republicans”

"Not all Republicans are racists, but all racists are Republicans” is an anti-Republican political line said by some Democrats. “Not all Republicans are racists, but nearly all racists are Republicans” was cited in print in December 2005.

The line came into frequent use during the presidency of Barack Obama. “Not all Republicans are racists, but if you are racist, you are likely a Republican” was said in May 2010 by political comedian Bill Maher.

“Not all Democrats are felons, but most felons are Democrats” is a similar saying.

Your right Noah-JayDee didn’t work out his Venn diagrams well enough and hence fell for the fallacy of the undistributed middle.

In a word, Yes. That is, NOT all Republicans are racists, but ALL racists ARE Republicans.

Hate to break your pinata but I do know some Democrats who are racist.
Yes, there surely are racist Republicans but not every one of us fits that description

I have held that this statement is true: “Not all Republicans are racists, but pretty much all racists are Republicans.” It would be really hard to argue that, even a republican. And PLEASE spare me with the radical left-wing bullshit—it’s a fact that 99% of all modern-day, redneck racists, with confederate sympathies vote fucking republican. OK.

Maher: ‘If you are racist, you’re probably a Republican’

Not all Republicans are racists, but racists are more than likely to be Republicans, according to comedian Bill Maher.

“Government intrusion, you know government power, is something that really bothers conservatives unless it’s directed at people that are not white. It seems like there is something like that going on there,” Maher said on ABC Sunday.
