To be sure, Schossburg (like Trump) is a racist…but if he really, truly believes that he’s not, then he’s not lying, but is ‘only’ very, very wrong, and neither recognizes his ignorance nor sees any real need to reflect on his own beliefs.
One second, Glenn. This isn’t a pile-on, but … [chuckle] … look at his actions (know them by their fruit). A lie is the practical opposite of the truth, regardless of what the person thinks of their own actions. If I kill someone, that makes me a murderer by definition, and that’s not contingent upon circumstance (which greatly affects how that killing is perceived), but it’s still a murder.
Schossburg’s actions are racist and he’s not only wrong, but deluded about his own actions. Let’s be real. No one pops off like that in public unless that’s what’s really in their heart.
