“President Trump told U.S. Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib — known collectively as ‘The Squad’ — to go back where they originally came from and to fix the broken, corrupt governments in those places before they try to fix America. What did he mean by this, and why does he continue to go after a handful of rookie lawmakers as part of his effort to get re-elected? Bill Whittle explains.”
What does it mean to be an American, which I guess is the question for this piece, if you don’t want to concentrate on just the pure fascism ( if not racism of ) of President Donald Trump’s tweets about those four leftist Democratic Representatives last Sunday.
If you were born in the United States even if both of your biological parents weren’t, or emigrated illegally, you’re an American citizen. If you emigrate to America legally, ( like Representative Ilhan Omar ) you’re an American citizen. What if any of these female Reps. told Donald Trump to go back to Germany or Scotland, ( where his ancestors are from ) he’s second generation on his father’s side with his paternal grandparents coming from Germany: how would The Donald and his 60 million supporters handle a Far-Left, minority Democratic woman asking him that question? Of course they would accuse her of being a racist. so how is President Trump telling these Reps. to go home, ( as if they’re from any other country ) any different?
Americans are Americans regardless of their political ideology. You can always question their patriotism and how much they may love or hate America, depending on how they talk about America. But similar to what state someone lives in, it doesn’t matter how much they love or hate their state that determines how much they love their state, but what state they live in that determines their residency. In Donald Trump’s small, Pluto size mind and world the only real Americans are the people who agree with him on everything. And everyone else are the Un-Americans who should go away. And that’s just not the real America and what makes us the great liberal democracy that we are. But instead some Russian or Saudi fascist state that Donald Trump wants us to be.
