(Politico)   Trump shows off his "triple threat" ability by managing to combine racism, misogyny AND xenophobia in a single sentence attacking Rep Omar: "She's telling us how to run our country. How did you do where you came from..how's your country doing? "   (politico.com) divider line

Ok, I don't wanna say this but ... Trump has a point.

Rep Omar's country is being run by an insane dictator who is driving it into the ground, destroying centuries of democratic tradition and appears to be freely able to break the law without any consequences.
Fascist gangs loyal to this madman roam the streets, weapons in hand, ready to mete out punishment to anyone who them deem disloyal.
The rights of it's citizens are being swiftly eroded, those deemed as intruders are locked up without trial, subjected to mistreatment and unethical medical procedures.
Ethnic minorities are murdered in the streets by an out of control police force and the highest court of the land is soon to have a majority of members loyal to the monster in charge.
Ilhan Omar is American.

If she grew up in a city since she was a child and didn't move there of her own volition, who are you to say where she's from. Trump's statement is racist and xenophobic because he assumes she doesn't belong here because of how she looks. I guarantee she's worked harder to be American than you have.

I was born in America. My parents were born in America, as were theirs. And I'm a white guy, so maybe my opinion will matter a little more to people like you, despite Omar being better qualified in every actual way.
If America actually stood for the ideals it preaches (liberty, democracy, equality, etc.) we'd be pretty damn good. Until we do that? Fark America. There's a farkton of shiat we, as a nation, need to make amends for, going back to our very founding, because that shiat is still affecting society and farking people over to this day. And we refuse to do so because of arrogant, ignorant nationalist pigfarkers who refuse to accept that America could ever have done anything wrong, or that it continues to do so.

Okay. Today we all believe the Congresswoman from Minnesota is allowed to criticize the way her/our country is being run. Those things she said to the NYT about how she exists to start fires and Democrats are running scared from their own shadow are... okay? Valid? Not a product of a few isolated fake progressives on the internet whom we are duty-bound to ignore?

Or do we believe her views should be ignored, but NOT on the basis of being a Somalian refugee? It's okay as long as we swear her race, gender and religion are nothing to do with it!

Truly, Donald Trump is a great uniter. I've never seen Democrats fall in line so fast. It's a shame he lacks all capacity to focus and we'll all be united about some other thing he hates tomorrow, or in a couple hours.

Either it's okay to criticize or it's not. I know Donald Trump is wrong, like, 99% of the time, but please don't wait for him to say something to work out how you feel about it. And don't run screaming away from your own well-reasoned (?) viewpoints just because he happened to agree with you. Do the work or you're never going to figure out where you went wrong or if you went wrong.

Second, you think you have made anything sound better?   Everything you have just said makes you a terrible American.  Honestly Trump's crap sounds like his usual thoughtless cruel bully routine.  You.  You sounds like a really racist piece of crap that REALLY sits down and owns it.   Listen to yourself.  Look what kind of crap you hear in your own head.
