She Persisted: Liz Cheney Puts AOC’s ‘Squad’ on Notice, Says the GOP Will Not Be Bullied Into Silence

When it comes to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and her so-called freshman “Squad” Reps. Ayanna Pressley (MA), Ilhan Omar (MN), and Rashida Tlaib (MI), Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) has made it clear she is unafraid to push back on both their false narratives and their dangerous policy proposals.

Such was the case on Tuesday, when Cheney listed out all the reasons why Republicans oppose “The Squad”, noting that it had nothing to do with their race, gender, or religion, contra to media reports that stated otherwise in the aftermath of the controversial tweets President Trump posted Sunday about them.

Real Clear Politics has the transcript:

I want to make absolutely clear that our opposition to our socialist colleagues has absolutely nothing to do with their gender, with their religion, or with their race. It has to do with the content of their policies. They’re wrong when they attempt to impose the fraud of socialism on the American people. They’re wrong when they pursue policies that would steal power from the American people and give that power to the government. They’re wrong when they espouse and enable, and their leadership refuses to condemn, vile anti-Semitism. They’re wrong when they rush to blame America first, when they fail to recognize that this is the greatest nation that has ever existed, the exceptional nation. And they’re wrong when they fail to recognize that no people has ever lived in greater freedom, and then they go on and fail to provide the resources our men and women in uniform need to defend that freedom.

Our colleagues, our socialist colleagues on the other side of the aisle, are wrong when they advocate abortion up until the moment of birth, including partial-term abortion, partial-birth abortion, late-term abortion, and when they refuse to mandate care for babies who are born alive. Our colleagues are wrong when they say that we should open America’s borders, abolish ICE, and abolish DHS. They’re wrong when they advocate policies that would eliminate all private health insurance in this country, destroy Medicare, and force the American people to pay for free healthcare for illegal immigrants. They are wrong when they pursue policies like the one we’re going to be voting on today that will destroy four million jobs for low-wage earners by mandating a federal $15 minimum wage. That is not compassion. That is callousness that’s born of ignorance. They’re wrong when they say that their programs help people at the lower end of the economic spectrum. Every one of their socialist programs would create massive new government dependency and end the very economic growth we need to ensure everyone can prosper.

Cheney also took off after Pressley in particular, who over the weekend at the Netroots Nation conference essentially accused rogue (read: contrarian) Hispanics, black people, and LGBTQ community members of being traitors to the liberal cause. Here’s what Cheney said about Pressley’s rant:

Our colleagues are wrong when they advocate packing the Supreme Court and abolishing the Electoral College. And our colleagues are wrong when they tell Americans, as Congresswoman Pressley did just last week, that any individual seat at the table is only valuable, only legitimate if that person espouses some pre-approved set of beliefs deemed appropriate based on their religion, or their gender, or their race. When they say that, that is racist.

Watch video of Cheney’s remarks below:

Cheney’s comments were on point, and come at a crucial time when Republicans need to seize back control of the national narrative, rather than being on defense. It shouldn’t be too difficult to do, considering The Squad continue to be their own worst enemies.

The Dead Tacoma Antifa Used AOC’s Motive and Ayanna Pressley’s Method In His Fatal Attack

Last weekend, an Antifa goober tried to firebomb the ICE detention facility in Tacoma, WA. As was to be expected, his technical skills were not up to the task, but the Tacoma police gave him what he so richly deserved. He left behind a “manifesto” that was the gibbering anarchist nonsense that you’d expect but, the more we look at it, the more it becomes obvious that the rhetoric of The Squad, that august brain trust consisting of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilnan “no I really didn’t have sex with my brother” Omar, and Ayanna Pressley, heavily influenced his thinking, such as it was, and his actions.

He relies on AOC’s “concentration camp” rhetoric and his method of attack seems to have been derived from another.

For someone who has twisted her panties in a tight little knot over a tweet by President Trump, Pressley seems to be fairly cavalier about inciting arson attacks or, taken at its most benign, mob violence against federal detention facilities. The left has a sordid history of inciting fatal attacks by using rhetoric that clearly calls for violence but which can be massaged by a willing press into mere hyperbole that some nutter misunderstood. It was the left that encouraged a nutter to try to shoot up the Family Research Council. It was the left that encouraged a nutter to shoot up a GOP congressional baseball team. It was the left that encouraged a nutter to try to burn an ICE facility. It is the left that is encouraging the violent street mobs of Antifa.

It is getting harder and harder to believe that these incitements are accidental and not part of a desire, if not a design, to ratchet up political violence in the country. Too what end, we don’t know. But it is certain that we will find out in the coming years.

FBI Spreadsheet Showed Majority Of Dossier Claims ‘Were Either Wrong Or Unverifiable’

Westlake Legal Group comey-mueller-620x433 FBI Spreadsheet Showed Majority Of Dossier Claims ‘Were Either Wrong Or Unverifiable’ Steele dossier Special Counsel Mueller Investigation John Solomon Front Page Stories FISA Court FISA Featured Story FBI and DOJ Corruption FBI donald trump democrats collusion Christopher Steele Carter Page Allow Media Exception Abuse of Power 2020

FILE – In this Sept. 4, 2013, file photo, then-incoming FBI Director James Comey talks with outgoing FBI Director Robert Mueller before Comey was officially sworn in at the Justice Department in Washington. On May 17, 2017, the Justice Department said it is appointing Mueller as special counsel to oversee investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. (AP Photo/Susan Walsh, File)

Sources have told investigative reporter John Solomon that the vast majority of claims made in Christopher Steele’s infamous dossier were “either wrong, unverifiable or things that an intern could find on the internet.”

Solomon appeared on “Hannity” last night and here is what he had to say: (Segment begins at 38:05 in the video below.)

In early 2017, the FBI began on a significant effort to assess the credibility of the Steele dossier. They interviewed one of his primary sources, a Russian living in the west and they came to the assessment after the interview which I believe was in January or February in 2017, that he was either intentionally misleading Steele or exaggerating in ways that caused Steele’s report to be grossly inaccurate.

They then took every factual statement in the Steele dossier memos and put them in a spreadsheet and analyzed them and came to conclude that the vast majority of them were either wrong, unverifiable despite all the investigative tools the FBI had or things that an intern with a google search could find on the internet. Not actionable intelligence, but google garbage. That is the quality of what they had.

Why is that significant? At the time they were learning this, they were continuing to represent to the court that Christopher Steele was a reputable source, that his information might be reliable.

One thing they discovered that they learned early on was wrong, the seminal thing they shared with the FISA Court, they wrote in a verified FISA application that Christopher Steele had corroborated or verified that Carter Page had met with [Rosneft oil executive] Igor Sechin and [senior government official] Igor Divyekin, two senior Russians close to Putin, during a trip in July 2016. The FBI never verified that and ultimately concluded it did not happen. That is the sort of information they knew was wrong in 2017. It took us until 2019 to get the same answer.

Solomon wrote that Page had met with a lower level Rosneft official and had “shaken hands” with a Russian deputy prime minister. But that was the extent of it.

The dossier claimed that Sechin had offered Page “a 19 percent (privatized) stake in Rosneft if he could get Trump to help lift sanctions on Moscow.”

This was obviously never verified. Nor were the bulk of the other claims in the dossier ever verified. Yet, the FBI presented this information in their applications to the FISA Court as verified.

One source told Solomon that “the spreadsheet was a sea of blanks, meaning most claims couldn’t be corroborated, and those things that were found in classified intelligence suggested Steele’s intelligence was partly or totally inaccurate on several claims.”

The most memorable claim in the dossier was the “golden shower” incident. According to a footnote in the Mueller Report, the FBI had interviewed Georgian-American Giorgi Rtskhiladze who said he “had been told the tapes were fake. Rtskhiladze’s lawyer subsequently issued a letter taking issue with some of Mueller’s characterizations.”

Solomon’s report about the FBI’s spreadsheet corroborates the claim that top officials were well aware that the dossier had not been verified. Several months ago, Solomon reported that State Department official Kathleen Kavalec emailed the FBI following a meeting with Christopher Steele to express her doubts about his motives and the credibility of the dossier itself. She had actually debunked several of the claims herself.

And top DOJ official Bruce Ohr testified that, on July 30, 2016, the day he presented the dossier to the FBI, he had warned them that it had not been verified.

Last month, Christopher Steele sat for a lengthy interview with DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz. This led to speculation by left leaning media outlets, most notably Politico and The Washington Post, that the IG found his testimony and his debunked dossier to be credible.

Politico reported that “Investigators ultimately found Steele’s testimony credible and even surprising.”

The Washington Post’s Greg Sargent, in an article entitled, “William Barr’s shilling for Trump may have just hit a snag,” wrote that “Trumpworld’s alt-narrative” was wrong.

But this whole narrative may have taken a new hit…Post fact checker Salvador Rizzo has shown, that whole narrative is wildly exaggerated and largely false in multiple ways.

Solomon said those reports were “misguided.”

Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) echoed Solomon’s sentiments. Meadows had spoken with DOJ officials after hearing these reports. He told Solomon:

Based on my conversations with DOJ officials, recent reports which suggest Christopher Steele’s dossier and allegations are somehow deemed credible by DOJ, are simply false and not based on any confirmation from sources with direct knowledge of ongoing investigations.

It’s amazing the FBI didn’t shred this spreadsheet a long time ago! The consequences, if what Solomon alleges is true, and I have every reason to suspect it is, will be great. It would mean that not only did the FBI file at least the last two FISA Court applications after the dossier had been debunked, but that Rod Rosenstein appointed a Special Counsel to investigate allegations against the President the FBI knew to be false.

The deep state kept this farce going for two more years, and would have continued had Attorney General William Barr not taken the reins at the DOJ.

The investigation certainly had an effect on the midterms. Although we’ll never know for sure, it’s quite possible that if the FBI ended the investigation in early 2017, clearing President Trump, Democrats may not have taken back control of the House.

Moreover, the narrative pushed by the left for over two years would have been nipped in the bud.

We’ve been stuck in an information blackout for several months now as DOJ IG Horowitz and Prosecutor John Durham conduct their investigations and it’s been frustrating. But all signs point to an eventual win for the President.

House of Representatives Locks In Its Irrelevance By Passing a Toothless and Partisan Resolution Condemning President Trump

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of Calif., pauses as she speaks during a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, Jan. 17, 2019. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster)

The evening the US House of Representatives passed a resolution condemning tweets, yes, I said it, condemning tweets by President Trump. After some drama in which the House had to override the House Parliamentarian to let Nancy Pelosi introduce the resolution (see Bonchie’s BREAKING: Chaos Breaks Out On House Floor, Pelosi Shut Down for the Day) and a string of Whereases invoking people and principles the Democrats have long since denigrated and jettisoned (they referenced the notorious slave owner Thomas Jefferson) they come to this:

3) strongly condemns President Donald Trump’s racist comments that have legitimized and increased fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color by saying that our fellow Americans who are immigrants, and those who may look to the President like immigrants, should “go back” to other countries, by referring to immigrants and asylum seekers as “invaders,” and by saying that Members of Congress who are immigrants (or those of our colleagues who are wrongly assumed to be immigrants) do not belong in Congress or in the United States of America.

Four of the weakest and most craven Republicans you’ll ever hear of voted with the Democrats on what was otherwise a clean party-line vote: Reps. Fred Upton (MI), Susan Brooks (IN), Will Hurd (TX) and Brian Fitzpatrick (PA).

To what end?

The resolution is non-binding. The 100% partisan nature of the resolution makes it meaningless. No one, other than people who already hate Trump, is taking this bullsh** seriously. The clown show on the House floor as the House squabbled over its own rules made crystal clear just how un-serious the Democrats are.

When the dust settles from this, I don’t President Trump is going to be the one with the sucking chest wound and the “how did this happen” expression on his face.

CBP Commissioner: Anti-Border Enforcement Rhetoric from Dems is Partly Responsible for the Tacoma Terrorist Attack

Westlake Legal Group mark-morgan-laura-ingraham-SCREENSHOT-620x367 CBP Commissioner: Anti-Border Enforcement Rhetoric from Dems is Partly Responsible for the Tacoma Terrorist Attack washington D.C. Violence Uncategorized The Ingraham Angle Mark Morgan laura ingraham Immigration and Customs Enforcement immigration Ice Front Page Stories Featured Story Fascism donald trump democrats Congress AOC antifa Allow Media Exception Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

[Screenshot from Twitter, https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1151191430229983232?]

 

Appearing on Fox News program The Ingraham Angle, Acting Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan blamed rhetoric from the Democratic Party, in part, for the left-wing terrorist attack on an illegal-immigration detention center in Tacoma, Washington.

On Saturday morning, a rifle-toting 69-year-old assailant was killed by law enforcement after trying to ignite a large propane tank.

Reportedly, Willem Van Spronsen was an anarchist and member of the ironically-named fascistic group Antifa (here).

Willem left a manifesto, and its claims suffered, as noted by Laura, under the influence of far-Left Democrats’ stunning excoriation of America’s system of border enforcement:

“[The attacker’s] manifesto repeatedly referred to ICE and the holding centers as ‘concentration camps,’ a comparison pushed by AOC. Not one 2020 Dem or mainstream media organization thought to mention that link, that same verbiage, none of it.”

Mark is perplexed by the DNC’s move against law:

“Why is this happening? We know why it’s happening. The rhetoric that’s out there from our own elected leaders, the vile rhetoric — they’re attacking the men and women of ICE, they’re attacking the men and women of CBP. It’s unjust, it’s unfair, it’s misinformed and outright — sometimes — they’re just lying to the American people. And it’s undoubtedly fueling this.”

He has a point — if Democrats are stirring the pot of paranoia with a perpetual characterization of immigration law and border agents as evil, it should be no surprise when the nuttiest among us rise to fight the monster.

And it isn’t only true with regard to immigration: The same, it seems to me, has occurred in various ways since the advent of Donald Trump. It’s how we end up with violent, black-masked terrorists — just see this incredible spectacle:

WATCH IN AWE: You Won’t Believe CNN’s Spotlight On A Violent Antifa Member & Its Vulgar Message To A Conservative Media Figure

You can’t stoke the coals of fear and expect no one to lash out.

Laura did make it clear, however, that she wasn’t claiming Alexandria “Concentration Camp” Ocasio-Cortez directly caused the attack (here and here).

But, as noted by Laura:

“If you actually think a concentration camp is happening in America, what wouldn’t you do to stop it?”

Mark agreed. What many fail to understand, he insisted, is that our border agents are, in fact, heroes:

“What makes me so frustrated, Laura, is the men and women of CBP…this year alone, they’ve rescued almost 4,000 individuals. Individuals trying to illegally enter this country.”

What do you think of Laura’s and Mark’s allegations? Was the Tacoma attack the natural conclusion to Dems’ war against the border, which is to say — perhaps more accurately — their war against Trump?

Some Have Winced at Trump’s Recent Democrat-Degrading Tweets. But Was it Actually a Genius Move?

There’s a particular tiny herd animal about which, if two of the cute little critters aren’t not getting along upon first meeting, standing them in just a tiny bit of harmless water — the conventional wisdom goes — will cause them unite. When faced with adversity, the foes will bond in order to form a stronger defense.

The same can happen, it may be assumed, with Democrats.

Recently, we’ve seen striking infighting across the aisle — Mama Bird Nancy stuck it to Baby Bird AOC, and a bunch of feathers flew.

During the melee, as RedState’s Bonchie put it, The Donald “[stripped] naked and [ran] onto the battlefield.”

Rather than let them continue to destroy themselves, Trump interrupted with his own pecking, turning their attention — and the audience’s — toward him.

A number of Republicans gave him an A for…well, just pick your A word for “not good.”

But could it have been smarter than perceived?

Some think so — perhaps he was making a genius move to make the Dems define themselves by the most extreme among them:

Interesting idea.

Consider Rush Limbaugh’s Monday statements on the matter:

“I think Trump sees this rift developing between Pelosi and the Democrat leadership and these new communists on the left led by Cortez, and I think he wants them back together again. I think Trump wants the Democrat Party to become known as the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Green New Deal socialism party. I think he wants to hang that label around all of them, and for that to happen they have to be unified.”

So the President galvanizes toward the goofy a party intent upon taking him out in 2020. And at a time, no less, when a poll indicates that swing voters are down on the socialist squad of new left-wing representatives.

It’s an eyebrow-raiser.

Is it accurate?

“The Squad” Just Handed Trump 2020

Westlake Legal Group tlaib-omar-aoc-pressley-620x317 “The Squad” Just Handed Trump 2020 The Squad republicans rashida tlaib Politics Ilhan Omar Front Page Stories Featured Story elections donald trump democrats Allow Media Exception Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez 2020

In this combination image from left; Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., July 10, 2019, Washington, Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., March 12, 2019, in Washington, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY., July 12, 2019, in Washington, and Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., July 10, 2019, in Washington. In tweets Sunday, President Donald Trump portrays the lawmakers as foreign-born troublemakers who should go back to their home countries. In fact, the lawmakers, except one, were born in the U.S. (AP Photo)

It was already looking bad for Democrats as they inched ever closer to 2020, but if there was any doubt that the Democrats are not the party that America wants to lead it into the next decade, then the mainstream media revered “#TheSquad” just closed the door tight.

It’s important to remember that despite the ranting, wailing, and gnashing of teeth from the hard-left and its mainstream press, America is till pretty pro-America. They don’t, for the most part, like social justice. It’s one of the reasons Trump was elected. Yet, despite his victory, the left is fully convinced that it needed to lean harder left. As they do, Trump only becomes more popular, and oddly, the left leans more on people like the girls from “The Squad.”

This is why it’s a safe bet that Trump will away with the 2020 election with ease.

It’s important to first take into account that this “squad” consists of highly unpopular congresswomen. According to an Axios poll, Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar both have high recognition with voters but take away a dismal 22 and 9 percent approval respectively. AOC attempted to write this off as an illusion created by President Donald Trump, but unless Trump manipulated the poll somehow, AOC’s claim holds no water.

It’s more of an AOC delusion than a Trump illusion, but with that out of the way, let’s take a look at some recent behavior from this “squad.”

The recent firebombing of an ICE facility was carried out by a member of Antifa and his “manifesto” was filthy with language used specifically by AOC. Despite the fact that this happened, Ocasio-Cortez would not denounce the attack.

Let’s be clear. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez would not denounce a terrorist attack against American officers from a man who has openly and radically violent, and encouraged others to be violent. According to AOC, this means she endorses this terrorism, seeing as how she said that the GOP is racist for not denouncing Trump’s “racist tweet” about her and her “squad.”

It may even be a worse case with Omar, who is warmer toward Al Qaeda than she is America, as one woman pointed out in a thread on Twitter by GOP spokeswoman Elizabeth Harrington.

The same thing can be said of Rep. Rashida Tlaib, who seems to get comfortable feelings from the suffering and death of Jewish people.

These women even refuse to denounce dictators.

These women seem to be good with our enemies, and consistently denounce America and its allies. In fact, Omar retweeted an article on Monday that blanket labeled Trump supporters as racist. At a time when radical leftists are looking for reasons to become violent with “they’re racist” being on the list, this kind of communication from an elected official is irresponsible.

Between the pipe dream level legislation like the Green New Deal, to infantile attacks on a daily basis, to the fact that these women celebrate whenever they prevent people from getting jobs, they are not exactly a voter’s best friend. Failing to condemn terrorist attacks or terrorist organizations, including those that caused the death of 3,000 people on 9/11, isn’t going to win you too many American fans.

As Erick Erickson put it, while Trump isn’t perfect, he’s far and away more of a trustworthy and proven individual than “The Squad”:

Many, many of the concerns I had about President Trump in 2016 have been addressed by him and his administration through sound public policy. No candidate and no administration is perfect and I will continue to speak up when I disagree. But President Trump offers a vision for the United States with a strong economic record to back it up. The Democrats offer attempted mass assassinations of Republicans, fire bombings of immigration facilities, Mexican flags replacing American flags, the harvesting and selling of chidren’s body parts, the continued destruction of our healthcare system, the championing of lawlessness, and open persecution of people of faith by government bureaucrats.

While Trump is presenting an America that is positive and strong, we have a Democrat party that is willing to literally stay silent while terrorism and economic stupidity is carried out using battle cries developed from Democratic official’s rhetoric.

Because of these congresswomen, the Democrat party now absolutely reeks of irresponsibility and radicalism. The mainstream media might be trying to play it off by talking about how horrible Trump is all the time, but they are being vastly overshadowed by the insanity of a Democrat party trying too hard to be like it’s darling “squad.” Between the 2020 candidates proclaiming America is a white supremacist nation and promises of dictatorial action on America’s rights, the 2020 Democratic candidates have adopted the same aforementioned asininity.

Trump isn’t going anywhere.

Is Trump Still Wrong? Nearly Two Dozen MS-13 Members Arrested in the San Fernando Valley for a Series of Machete Murders

Westlake Legal Group urban-youth-paint-graffiti-criminal-streets-872333-pxhere.com_-620x415 Is Trump Still Wrong?

Donald Trump seems to be, more than any other president in recent history, opposed solely for the sake of opposition.

He says it’s up? Indignant Dems demand it’s down. He says black? They freak out and insist white.

And all of this absurdity tends toward making politics look wholly worthless.

What of the things the President says that are important?

How about his expressed concern over the El Salvadoran gang MS-13? Is that just racist nonsense, as it appears to be portrayed by the opposition?

In LA — which has a host of problems (here and here)– this week, nearly two dozen alleged gang members from the San Fernando Valley were arrested in what prosecutors say was a string of “medieveal-style” murders.

As per to the claims, the group committed seven ghastly killings involving torture and dismemberment around Malibu, North Hollywood, and the Angeles National Forest.

The atrocities were frequently carried out with knives, baseball bats, and the gang’s trademark machetes.

Hacked-to-death victims were often those suspected of having cooperated with the police.

One was a purportedly a homeless man living in an area controlled by the gang.

Consider one of the crimes, perpetrated by six people with a machete, according to federal prosecutors:

“The victim was dismembered, and his body parts were thrown into a canyon after one of the defendants allegedly cut the heart out of the victim’s body.”

The arrests came courtesy of the Los Angeles Metropolitan Task Force on Violent Gangs, which includes the Los Angeles Police Department, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, and the FBI.

Paul Delecourt, Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI’s LA Field Office, explained that they’re sending a message:

“Taking violent offenders off the street should send a message to MS-13 members and their associates that medieval-style violence and senseless murder will not be tolerated in Los Angeles. Working with our local partners, we expect to impact MS-13’s influence in gang-occupied communities.”

The “heinous, cruel [and] depraved” murders were committed by those hoping to rise in rank.

President Trump decried the threat of MS-13. And despite the fact that he mentored Def Jam founder Russell Simmons, those on the blue side of the aisle simply accused him of hating non-whites. They downplayed the threat.

Seven people in Los Angeles, if they were still able to speak, might disagree.

BREAKING: Chaos Breaks Out On House Floor, Pelosi Shut Down for the Day

This is all fluid, but there’s apparently full blown chaos breaking out on the House floor.

The House was in the middle of debating a resolution to condemn Trump’s tweet storm from this past weekend. Nancy Pelosi pointedly said Trump’s comments were racist on the House floor. Not only is that highly debatable, it turns out to be a violation of House rules.

This led to a 30 minute debate between Democratic staffers and the House Parliamentarian and that led to Steny Hoyer ruling Peloi’s comments out of order.

It should be pointed out that Pelosi and Democrats could never muster up the courage to call Ilhan Omar’s plainly anti-Semitic comments what they were, instead choosing to whitewash a generalized resolution that Omar actually got to claim as a victory against “Islamophobia.”

In the end, I’m sure the House Democrats will get their pointless resolution, but Pelosi’s antics here are going to open the flood games for other Congressional members to break the rules.

It should also be pointed out that House Republicans really played their A game here by objecting at the right time and running circles around Pelosi. Meanwhile, a debate over Trump has now turned into an embarrassment on the floor for Democrats. “The Squad” strikes again.

McConnell to the Media: Your Race Card Is Maxed Out

Unless you’ve been in a coma for the past three days you know the story.

On Sunday, President Trump took to Twitter to tell The Squad that if they didn’t like it here in America (and it is blatantly obvious that at least three of them loathe America and its way of life), then perhaps they should decamp to the Third World sh** hole of their choice.

Let’s pause for a musical interlude (h/t to Archer01 for the reminder) and recall that telling people to get the hell out of here if they don’t like it is not something that is particularly new to American politics.

Immediately, Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the NeverTrumpers and assorted weak and fearful Republicans were finding the tweets racist (I’m not really sure which race they are referring to, you only have five). There are things you can criticize the tweets for, but, in my view, it isn’t racist to tell someone that if you don’t like it here, find an place more amenable to your aesthetic. Perhaps someplace with no water and flyblown corpses festooning the landscape.

Just a short while ago, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was button-holed by some media types and they asked him about the brouhaha:

This reminds me of the old Jon Stewart skit

We have gotten to a point where you can’t disagree or mock anyone on the left without being accused of some form of -ism or -phobia against which all right thinking people should unite. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the little Maduro fan girl, actually hinted that Nancy freakin Pelosi was racist for saying she wasn’t all that. The good thing about that is that most America seems to have wised up to the game and recognize that calling someone racist (or sexist or homophobic or whatever) is simply a cheap attempt to shut down a conversation that the listener doesn’t want to take place.

There are very real questions about the degree to which Tlaib and Omar and Ocasio-Cortez are actually loyal to this country and whether they will operate in this country’s best interests/ Pressley, it seems to me, is more of a garden variety racebaiter who doesn’t fit in all that well with the other three but who is tagging along for the press clippings. You may not like what Trump said but not liking it does not make it racist.
