We've reached the point in the timeline where the President is doubling down on being a racist

to take attention away from being a rapist

because being a racist isn't as bad as being a rapist. #RacistPresident

:blink:

And this comment reminds me of something my French teacher told me a long time ago.

But they're the same words in French as they are in English virtually.

Remember that something is not called funny when it's a bizarre or weird tragedy --

You have to use the word ironic.

JUST NOW: I asked @KellyannePolls, who’d just said @realDonaldTrump was not telling Omar/Tlaib/Pressley/AOC to go back to Somalia/Gaza/Puerto Rico/etc,

which countries he was referring to.

She responded by asking me where my ancestors came from,

thereby confirming what he meant

Here's the back-and-forth with Mitch McConnell today when asked about racism and the president's "go back" remarks,

in the context of his wife Elaine Chao, an American who immigrated from Taiwan.

.@senatemajldr asked a key question - if someone were to tell your own wife [Sec. of Transportation Elaine Chao] to "go back to her country,"

would you consider that racist?

 

McConnell declines to answer yes or no.<_<

trump seems to think that anyone who disagrees with him should be sent back to the country of their ethnicity or in Elaine chao's case, as well as Melania trump's case where they were born.

Speaking of Melania:

Melania was born in Slovenia and her real name is Melanija Knavs. I wonder if trump threatens to send her back there whenever they have a marital quarrel?????

How a Trojan Horse Project to Rewrite Our Constitution Could Actually Happen if Trump Wins in 2020

It’s looking more and more like the endgame here for Trump—and the right-wing billionaires who support him and the GOP—is not just to get reelected, but to actually rewrite our Constitution and end the American experiment

 

......

Turns out, there’s an actual project to rewrite our Constitution, turning America into a corporate-run oligarchy.

They’d end the income tax, eliminate federal regulatory agencies like the EPA, end all labor protections (including laws against child labor), let states ignore anti-discrimination and other federal regulations, and impose term limits so the only “institutional memory” for legislatures will be the corporate lobbyists.

All it needs to succeed—within just a few short years—is for Trump and the GOP to win big in 2020. And the prospects of that happening are going up every day. With a big Trump win will come a rewrite of our Constitution itself, if the billionaires funding it have their way.

 

But how could he win? With another $2 billion worth of free publicity, just like in 2016.

One example is how Trump’s reelection campaign got a great boost recently when the media, just like in 2016, went all-Trump-all-the-time around his ICE raids, and when he told four congresswomen of color to “go home”...

 

NBC trained Trump well; they spent millions teaching him how to do a reality show, from cliff-hangers to pitting “heroes” against “goats.” It’s one of the few things he’s actually good at. And instead of his old “Apprentice” weekly show, he’s now producing a daily show from the White House.

But to what end?

It’s looking more and more like the endgame here for Trump—and the right-wing billionaires who support him and the GOP—is not just to get reelected, but to actually rewrite our Constitution and end the American experiment.

The group leading this charge for the billionaires is called Citizens for Self-Governance (CSG), which SourceWatch.org says, “is a right-wing political organization ... that is campaigning for an Article V convention to amend the U.S. Constitution.”....

The simulated convention passed amendments relating to six topics, including requiring the states to approve any increase in the national debt, imposing term limits, restricting the scope of the Commerce Clause [to its original meaning], limiting the power of federal regulations, requiring a supermajority to impose federal taxes and repealing the 16th Amendment [end the income tax], and giving the states the power to abrogate any federal law, regulation, or executive order.” .........

 

If Trump is as successful in manipulating the media as he was in 2016, and the GOP can ride his coattails (along with hundreds of millions from right-wing billionaires) to sweep the Democratic-controlled states they’re targeting, they could hit the 38 states needed to replace the Constitution in the first year or two after his reelection (there are 40 states in the lists above).

A probably apocryphal quote often attributed to Arnold Toynbee says, “When the last man who remembers the horrors of the last great war dies, the next great war becomes inevitable.”

Similarly, when the last American who remembers how quickly democratic constitutions were replaced in Europe in the 1930s dies, the replacement of democracy in America becomes inevitable."

Trashing the Constitution would be a lot more convenient for trump than depending on John Roberts.

The crowd at Trump’s rally chanting “send her back” after the President viciously and dishonestly attacked Ilhan Omar is one of the most chilling and horrifying things I’ve ever seen in politics.

4:46 PM - 17 Jul 2019

The Central Park 5/birther has finally found a Target that satisfies his racism, misogyny, and religious bigotry.

Plus he knows what his hateful base wants to hear.

Rep. @AOC: "The president put millions of Americans in danger last night.

His rhetoric is endangering lots of people, this is not just about threats to individual members of Congress,

but it is about creating a volatile environment in this country through violent rhetoric."

Abraham Lincoln was one of our greatest presidents because he kept the  Union together and brought back all Americans together again after the Civil War.

trump is our worst American president because he systematically and diabolically seeks to divide Americans and to pit them against each other with violent rhetoric and hateful tweets.

Trump, asked in the Oval why he didn't stop his supporters from chanting 'send her back', says:

"I think I did. I started speaking very quickly."

Here's the video: Trump let the chant go on for about 13 seconds. He never told the crowd to stop.

=======================================

Ted LieuVerified account @tedlieu 1h1 hour ago

 

.@realDonaldTrump is lying.

Watch as he waits for 13 seconds and at least 9 chants of "send her back" before speaking.

 

New Orwellian @GOP mantra: "The party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears.

It was their final, most essential command.”

Trump isn't going to tell the crowd to cut this out chant any more than he did during the campaign with "Lock Her Up."

Trump LOVES this stuff. Those white crowds and their chants are HIS people, in his demagogue mind, chanting, in their hatred of others, re-election to his mind.

Video of McCain shutting down supporter who called Obama "Arab" goes viral

after Trump fails to silence "send her back" rally chant

 

....The then-presidential candidate could be seen taking the microphone from the supporter while shaking his head before going on to say:

“No, ma’am. He’s a decent family man, citizen who I just happen to have disagreements with on fundamental issues.”

“And that’s what this campaign is all about,” he continued.

John McCain was a real American hero in war time and in peace time.

He showed that it took courage to be a hero no matter Where you were or what you were doing.

It takes courage to stand up for what's right in the face of loud opposition, but it's never been easy to follow moral principles.

American ideals are just ideas unless brave people stand up and fight for them.

And the late Senator McCain was one of those brave people.

Trump’s harsh words on ‘squad’ reinforce dark posts online

 

".... Racist, inflammatory and inaccurate content has circulated on far right blogs, news sites and social media accounts about Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and her three freshman colleagues since they ran for public office. With his tweets and harsh comments,

Trump has elevated that rhetoric, playing into a conspiratorial feedback loop that reared its head repeatedly during his campaign and presidency. ........

they were just an average day on Facebook or Twitter, where allegations that Omar was not legitimately elected, is not a U.S. citizen and committed immigration fraud have festered in far right chatrooms, blogs and social media sites since she was elected to the Minnesota House of Representatives in 2016.

“This is the agenda of white nationalists, whether it is happening in chat rooms or it’s happening on national TV,” Omar said this week. “And now it’s reached the White House garden.”.......

 

In the 2016 presidential election, Russians relied on a similar online playbook, deploying anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim rhetoric on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter in an effort to boost Trump’s prospects.

Racially divisive content was the biggest component of the Russian disinformation campaign, according to Ian Vandewalker, counsel for the Democracy Program....

“A lot of it was fearmongering that was intended to mobilize right-leaning voters,” Vandewalker said. “Some of it was similar to or echoed themes in Trump’s own campaign.”

He predicted Russians would revive racially fraught social media content in 2020.

Memes also have emerged calling the women “anti-American” and “enemies within.” One mock movie poster labels the women “The Jihad Squad” and includes the tagline: “Political Jihad is their game.”

The attacks are part of a pattern for Trump......

'Absolutely shameful': Trump slammed for asking Yazidi activist Nadia Murad 'You had the Nobel Prize?'

 

"President Donald Trump is under fire — this time, for video of an exchange with Yazidi activist and Nobel Peace Prize winner Nadia Murad, who visited the White House on Wednesday

to ask for America’s help in saving her people, an oppressed Iraqi ethnic minority group.

Critics online are slamming Trump for his seeming indifference to her pleas for help, and for only showing interest in why she won the Nobel Peace Prize.

“Nadia Murad tells the president of the United States her heartbreaking story of having to survive genocide and mass rape and violence but

Trump shows no compassion, interest or empathy, and only wants to know how and why she won a Nobel Prize. Sigh,” journalist Mendi Hasan tweeted........

 

When explaining the mass genocide of the Yazidi people, including the murder of her own mother and six brothers, Trump interrupts her yet again to ask where her family members are now. Incredulous, Murad replies, “They killed them. They are in the mass grave in Sinjar.”

Trump then turns away from Murad as she once again pleads for American aid, “I’m still fighting just to live in safety. Please do something.”

After the president says he will “look into it very strongly,” he then asks her to explain how she got the Nobel Prize in the first place — an honor he believes he deserves for his work on North Korea and Syria.........

Virginia Democrats vow to boycott event if Trump attends, invoke 'send her back' chants

"Democrats in Virginia's state legislature are vowing to boycott a ceremony in Jamestown later this month celebrating the 400th anniversary of representative government in the country if President Trump attends the event.

The leaders of the Virginia House and Senate Democratic caucuses issued a statement Friday night slamming Trump and maintaining they may not note show up amid reports that the president was expected to attend the commemorative session.

"We will not be attending any part of the commemorative session where Donald Trump is in attendance. The current President does not represent the values that we would celebrate at the 400th anniversary of the oldest democratic body in the western world," the Democrats said.

“We offer just three words of advice  to the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation:

‘Send Him Back,’” added the statement .......

* Send trump back to Germany?

-- That's where his paternal grandfather came from.

    And when Mr drumpf wanted to go back to Germany,

    the Germans sent him back to the United States because he had not fulfilled his military requirements! Does that sound familiar?

 

** Send trump back to Scotland?

Mary-anne MacLeod, trump's mother came to the United States from Scotland in 1930 to be a domestic servant.

Today trump owns a golf Club / hotel resort in Scotland and has angered the Scottish by not respecting their traditions. So I don't think he'd be welcome in his mother's Homeland.

If we had to send trump back somewhere, he may have to seek some kind of political Asylum to find some country which would take him.( I wouldn't suggest France, Germany, the United Kingdom, Canada or Mexico. LOL)

And that might take him a long time considering how long he could be locked in a cage waiting for it.

Probably trump's best bet would be to go back to his wife's home country, Slovenia.

Melanija Knavs, trump's 3rd wife,  would be welcomed there because they even erected a statue in honor of her.

But trump might not like it there because he's made some comments about ****hole countries and Slovenia maybe one of those kind of places.

But if all else fails, trump can always count on his buddy Putin to take him in and house him at the Kremlin.

 

 

 

Somebody asked me yesterday if I would sign a petition

to send 2 United States senators:

Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio back to Cuba.

It looks like trump's really started something here.

Unfortunately, the majority of voters in the swing states for 2020 probably do not.  There be the rub.

Another excellent column by Cokie and Steve Roberts.  Basically his attacks on the four Democrat Congresswomen is intentional, planned and well thought out (for him) by Trump.  It replicates his tactics from the 2016 election which won him the presidency.  He is appealing to the "aging white men who lack a college education."  The very ones who voted for him in 2016 in the swing states than swung the election.

The Dems are taking a risk by defending the "Squad," but it is one they must take.  The risk is that Trump is using the Squad to represent all Dems and tying them to the far left agenda of them and other far left Dems (Sanders, Warren, Harris, et. al.).

The Dems "must energize minority voters, particularly young ones, while not alienating moderates - especially in the critical Midwestern states that gave Trump his victory."  These voters will be "pivotal again next year."  

If the Squad does not "cool their jets and curb their egos,"they will hand Trump a second term.  IMO, they will also hand other Republicans in Senate, House and State governments victories.

For a member of Congress I define 'real' based mostly on their voting record.    Talk from a politician is cheap and largely meaningless.    Omar,  like all the other newbie members of Congress, doesn't have enough of a voting record for me to judge.    (but Omar did vote contrary to what Pelosi advised fellow House Dems on the border bill and impeachment).

Takes to long to establish a voting record of any singularity.  Although, the Squad did vote against the Dems and the immigrants on the immigration bill.  Which to me showed placing themselves above the needs of the immigrants.  Not a good bill, but the only one that would get through.

But, the main thing is what they have been saying and continue to say.  While it may be meaningless in that it might not get passed, it is meaningful in that it lets you know how that person thinks.

OK, I can see that is part of how some would see her.  But on the other hand, she has identified herself as a far-left Democrat.  She is opposed to things that many Americans support and supports  things to which many Americans are opposed.  Without her religion being an issue.
