  2. The leftist interpretation of reality, their true goals, and the necessary implications of all that they do are such that require obfuscation and swift punishment for those thinkers who dissent from them.

He said if you (opponent) want to accuse me of racism and I then have to spend the rest of the interview proving that I'm not a racist, well then, we're not going to have that conversation. But if you want to talk about substance . . . .
