So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly......

....and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run. Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how....

....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

Finally he shows his colors.  Anyway I am sure his base thinks the same way even though I believe only one of those Progressive Democratic Congresswomen wasn't born in the US.

And he just called the people who chanted "Send her back!!" at his rallies "incredible patriots".

Might as well make this the new American flag.



Some days I just blow up.

"Why does it matter whether or not he used their name?"

>Because the accusation is that he used the race of the supposed four congresswomen (which he never named in his tweets btw) to determined they didn't come from the US. I see Tlaib and I see Ilhan and I think "hmm, I wonder if they were born here in the states?"

Nothing racist about it, it's simple logic.

"It is equally bad to use a person´s name as a measurement of whether or not the person is an equal citizens to you or not."

>I don't recall Trump making any such measurement in his tweets. He said "go back, fix those problems, then return to the US."

Actually he did mention them in his tweets

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1151451067437191168?s=19

The fact that you don't even know that is very telling, especially since it can be easily researched.

More like others just get ahead of themselves.

"-You can't assume someone was from somewhere else."

>Sure you can: at the risk of being wrong.

"-You can't suggest they go back there."

>Why the hell not? It's a suggestion, not a command. No one is forcing anyone to go somewhere against their will.

The fact that at one of his recent rallies his supporters shouted "SEND HER BACK!" regarding Omar and Trump did nothing to stop them shows that it basically has the same meaning to him and his supporters. "Send her back" is definitely not a suggestion, it is a command.

"Trump is the president of the United States"

>And does that give him the power to remove someone from office or a citizen from the country?

probably not but that the country's most powerful man toying with the idea, is still problematic.

"there are people who seriously want to revoke the citizenship of people like Ilhan Omar"

>I think you need to meet special criteria to achieve that, it doesn't just happen.

yeah you would probably need a majority among the people, mighty supporters are needed to achieve that.

"there were times where certain groups(blacks and women) didn't have full citizen rights in the US"

>Well it's 2019. Let's talk 2019.

It's 2019 and Alabama made abortions basically illegal, something many people couldn't imagine happening in the 21st century. Don't take any of your rights for granted.

"Do you think it is ok to threaten political enemies in such a way?"

>No. What threat are you talking about?

A threat is a threat even if there isn't a immediate action to it.

"Would it be ok for you if what Trump said becomes reality?"

>That "progressive" congresswomen go to some country and help fix its problems? And then come back and "show how it's done"? That doesn't sound that bad. That actually sounds kinda cool.

These four women are elected for the US Congress, all they should care about are their voters and America. Why do they have to pass such an unrealistic test? If every american politician also have to be an successfull politician in a nother country than non of your politicians would be in office.

It doesn't sound that cool anymore if you think about it.

"It's 2019 and Alabama made abortions basically illegal, something many people couldn't imagine happening in the 21st century. Don't take any of your rights for granted."

>No one is saying they HAVE to pass any such test. Do you not know what a suggestion is?

The irony of MAGA.

Trump recently said to 4 congresswomen that if they don't like current American policy, politics and circumstances they can go back to their country of origin (I'm paraphrasing, of course).

But is not the phrase Make America Great Again a statement of unhappiness with current American policy, politics and circumstances?

Related:

Conservatives to conservatives: if you don't like it, we will make it great again.  

Conservatives to liberals: if you don't like it, leave.

Conservatives to undocumented immigrants: why wouldn't you try fixing your country, instead of leaving it?

Out of curiosity (aka because I want to see something other than Trump's tweets discussed here), who are you supporting in the democratic primary and why?

Trump: "So great to see how unified the Republican Party was on today’s vote concerning statements I made about four Democrat Congresswomen."

Can you give a single plausible scenario where Trump isn't confirming that his previous statements were about the four democrat congresswomen everyone knows it's about?

Again, this is pretty much America's flag now.

1 big swastika indicates it applies to all of America. Maybe it should stick with 50 but the Republican states should be swastika's and Democrat states should be stars. On the other hand, that surely could be interpreted as division somehow, so maybe not?



The Canadian National Anthem According To Justin Trudeau

 

Oh planet Earth! The home of native lands, 
True social law, in all of us demand.
With cattle farts, we view sea rise,
Our North sinking slowly.
From far and snide, oh planet Earth, 
Our healthcare is yours free!
Science save our land, harnessing the breeze,
Oh planet Earth, smoke weed and ferment yeast.
Oh planet Earth, ell gee bee queue and tee.

What a cringe thing to tweet.

I know.  The state of bigotry, racism and hatred in this country with the umbrella of indifference turning a blind eye to it is absolutely cringe worthy of the highest levels.

1/3rd - Don't like it, leave.
1/3rd - I just want to make a better life for me, my children and everyone else.
1/3rd - I don't care.  I got a tax break.

...I guess it's apropos to just pile on with more cringe.

I couldn't find a version like that.

Also, he's not just a racist, he's very likely or at least has been a rapist.

What do you mean you couldn't find something on the net? How can this be? One can only hope there's a meme hero out there who's up to the task.

Not sure how touching a woman is rape, especially since he's surrounded by a few of them in close proximity at some kind of party, and none of those woman seem to look uncomfortable in the situation they've put themselves in.

Where is the rest of the vid showing the woman getting upset and turning around and giving him a slap? Or was she ok with it?
