Trump rally crowd chants 'Send her back' about Omar

Trump rally crowd chants 'Send her back' about Omar Supporters at President Trump's campaign rally on Wednesday chanted "send her back" about Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) after the president launched into a diatribe against the first-term lawmaker and Somali refugee.Trump tore into Omar early on in his rally in Greenville, North Carolina, a continuation of his days-long attacks against her and three other progressive congresswomen. The crowd raucously booed Omar at the first mention of her name. The president went on to accuse Omar of demeaning U.S. servicemembers and minimizing the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

He’s right, this angry old man in melting bronzer shouting in the July heat: Those of us who don’t like what’s going on in this country should get the hell out. “Go back ,” as he said, to the “crime-infested places from which they came .”. A fine idea.

We trekked to the harvest on the prairies looking for ocean skies and fields to make a film about the search for youth, the loss of it and a need for something outside of It took 5 good friends, a van, dog, gun, mirror and many wheat fields until we looked no further and wheeled ourselves back to the Coast.

For me, as with more than 30 million other Americans with my hyphenate, that’s tiny Ireland, the country once so infested with crime, famine, disease and assorted horrors of foreignness that its British overlords said a merciful God was doing a favor by killing off the starving masses.

Trump Rally Chants of ‘Send Her Back’ at Ilhan Omar Roundly Condemned: ‘Flat Out Bigotry’

Trump Rally Chants of ‘Send Her Back’ at Ilhan Omar Roundly Condemned: ‘Flat Out Bigotry’ At President Donald Trump's North Carolina rally tonight, as POTUS tore into Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, the crowd erupted in chants of "send her back!"

In a series of racially charged tweets sent in quick succession, Trump suggested that the women "go back " to the countries "from which they came ." "So interesting to see 'Progressive' Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total

So back I went to have a look. This, mind you, was just before President Trump’s suggestion to his fellow citizens to get out. And also, generations after someone on my father’s side made the choice to flee for life itself, rather than fall into the cold Irish ground through the bottom of a reusable coffin.

What I found on that island where typhus once took entire families as they shivered on floors of mud, where, by one medical estimate, 50 percent of the children in Dublin once died before their first birthday, is now a land of universal health care.

Health care for all residents: It’s still a surprise to someone from a nation where the number of uninsured Americans has gone up by seven million under Trump. I had left a place where nearly one in seven people are left to fend for themselves when sick, to a fully covered country, the norm in most of the industrialized world.

‘Send Her Back’: The Bigoted Rallying Cry of Trump 2020

‘Send Her Back’: The Bigoted Rallying Cry of Trump 2020 The president’s supporters at a North Carolina rally showed contempt for naturalized citizens and the Constitution.

“Mr. President, the country I ‘ come from ,’ and the country we all swear to, is the United States,” Ocasio-Cortez, like Trump a native “When @realDonaldTrump tells four American Congresswomen to go back to their countries , he reaffirms his plan to ‘Make America Great Again’ has always been

I come / came from Italy. Should it be present tense or past tense? It's technically correct for you to say " I came from Italy", but that would sound like you're recounting the the journey. But if you are actually talking about your experience of arriving in America, then that would be correct

What I found in that place where barefooted, Gaelic-speaking hordes once could not read an English sign are colleges nearly free to its citizens — good colleges, at that. Imagine, a family not having to bankrupt itself to help a child off to a better life.

What I found is a republic where nearly one in eight people were born abroad, nearly as high a percentage as the foreign-born population of the United States. The prime minister, Leo Varadkar, is himself a son of an Indian immigrant. His father was born in Mumbai, while his mother hails from County Waterford, the home also of my mother’s distant family.

That 19th-century hellhole has become a 21st-century heaven. The Irish have become us — what we wanted and aspired to. They are living our national narrative, a country open to those fleeing oppressors and lack of opportunity. Its prime minister would never gloat over a “send her back” chant at a hatefest directed at new members of the republic.

Some in GOP chastise 'send her back' chant, but not Trump

Some in GOP chastise 'send her back' chant, but not Trump A few Republicans on Thursday criticized the chants of "send her back" by President Donald Trump's rally crowd after he assailed a young Democratic congresswoman who he's suggested should leave the U.S. 

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hit back at President Donald Trump, saying the "corrupt" and "broken and crime infested" country he seemed to tell her to Ocasio-Cortez was born in the Bronx, a borough of New York City. Only Rep. Ilhan Omar was born outside the US, before she says came to the country

"Mr. President, the country I ' come from ' & the country we all swear to, is the United States. But given how you’ve destroyed our border with inhumane camps, all at a benefit The president basically told nonwhite progressive congresswomen to go back where they came from , which in the case of

Back home in America, the unimaginable is the new norm: a fully blossoming fascism. We’re stuck in a hideous loop of hate. But it’s also an idiocy loop.

Why are we arguing about something any second grader has already settled after looking around the classroom and realizing that nearly every other child is a descendant of someone from a foreign land?

Read the resolution the House of Representatives passed on Tuesday, citing Ronald Reagan, John F. Kennedy and Benjamin Franklin, and quoting Franklin Roosevelt’s call to “remember always, that all of us, and you and I especially, are descended from immigrants and revolutionists.” It’s the kind of immigrants-make-a-nation-stronger boilerplate that would normally pass the House with unanimous consent, but it drew only four Republican votes.

This is how low Trump has taken us. We are a debased nation fighting over the scraps of our former principles. Should someone offer a resolution saluting the “purple mountain majesties” of the United States, every Republican would vote against it if Trump tweeted against a color that is not orange. Senator Mitch McConnell, whose immigrant wife is indirectly a target of this sludge, would say, as he did about the “send-her-back chants,” that the president is “on to something.”

Ocasio-Cortez: Trump has 'put millions of Americans in danger' with attacks on minority lawmakers

Ocasio-Cortez: Trump has 'put millions of Americans in danger' with attacks on minority lawmakers Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Thursday said that President Trump put "millions of Americans in danger" after a "send her back" chant targeting Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) broke out at his rally in North Carolina. "The president put millions of Americans in danger last night. His rhetoric is endangering lots of people," Ocasio-Cortez told reporters on Capitol Hill. "It's not just about threats to individual members of Congress, but it is about creating a volatile environment in this country through violent rhetoric that puts anyone like Ilhan, anyone who believes in the rights of all people, in danger. He has a responsibility for that environment." Rep.

“Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came ?” Omar, who fled war-torn Somalia as a Ocasio-Cortez also responded to Trump on Twitter on Sunday afternoon, NBC reported, saying “ the country I ‘ come from ,’ & the country we all swear to

Then come back and show us how it is done.” Delivered on the day he had promised widespread immigration raids, Mr. Trump’s comments signaled a new And Ms. Ocasio-Cortez sent out a series of tweets addressing the president directly. “Mr. President,” she said in one, “ the country I ‘ come from ’

I’m against the dismissal of others with the pre-emptive pejorative of “white privilege.” It closes minds and ends conversations. But this is one case where white privilege applies. For Trump’s tweet wasn’t aimed at me. Nor was it directed at his vice president, the cipher and coward Mike Pence, himself an Irish-American.

Trump’s hate blast was directed solely at people of color.

His tweet was the textbook definition of racism. And I should add in the interest of full transparency, I disagree with much of the policy initiatives of the four left-wing congresswomen targeted by Trump. It was wrong and incorrect for them to make Nancy Pelosi’s disagreement with them about race. That episode was another textbook illustration of why the far left has trouble winning a majority.

But let’s leave that discussion for another day. Back in the country from which I came, the Irish appear genuinely perplexed at this American vomiting of principle. Writing in “Irish Times,” Oliver Sears, a British-born resident of Ireland and son of a Polish holocaust survivor, wondered how any immigrant could ever vote for Trump.

I heard a similar thing when I went back: How could Irish-Americans vote for this awful man without becoming traitors to their heritage? For this Ireland has become what America used to be. If only America could be more like this Ireland.

Trump attacks 'the Squad' as 'racist group of troublemakers'.
President Trump on Monday stepped up his attacks on a group of four freshman Democratic lawmakers, calling the group of minority women a "racist group of troublemakers." "The 'Squad' is a very Racist group of troublemakers who are young, inexperienced, and not very smart," Trump tweeted while en route to the Supreme Court to pay his respects to the late Justice John Paul Stevens. The "Squad" is a very Racist group of troublemakers who are young, inexperienced, and not very smart. They are pulling the once great Democrat Party far left, and were against humanitarian aid at the Border...
