Problem is.....the optics are that these four people of color who are freshman politicians in the House with little power are being used as some kind of Anti-American symbol -- and the problem -- all four are of color.

Coincidence for sure -- but the message is people of color who criticize the govt. are anti-American.

It's not a good look.
It plays to the base and message boards.

But it is a tough sell to minority groups in the USA that already struggle to feel like they aren't seen as real Americans -- even though they are.

You have generations of folks of color who were born here.

The picture of four women of color being anti-American -- straight off -- just bad marketing.

Not a good message.

Leave the picture off -- attack the policy.

Though it was brief, I struggled with the “send her back” chant tonight referencing Rep. Omar. Her history, words & actions reveal her great disdain for both America & Israel. That should be our focus and not phrasing that’s painful to our friends in the minority communities.

Just let that sink in.

EVEN this die hard Republican doesn't think it's a good idea.......

Rally last night created a new simple chant for Trump fans at these rallies.

Problem with that. Not sure it is the look the Republican party should be going for.

Trump has started his campaign..

ANY person of color that criticizes the President or the country..... will be call un-American and should get out of the country.
Kapernick was just the start... colored people have NO right to complain.


But trump could run a 2 year campaign complaining that everything was bad and ruined in the US when Obama was President.



I hope most people see where this is going... and it aint pretty!

If you think that AOC and Omar are a favorable face for the dem party and will help their election chances in 2020, you need to lay off the sauce.

Both AOC and Omar are terrifying to the average American, as they represent far left extremism. Perhaps you have not heard, but extremism never plays well to the majority of voters.

"Her history, words & actions reveal her great disdain for both America & Israel."

That's not what America sees. What they see is that liberals want to give a pass to Congresspeople who hate this country if they are women of color and/or Muslim. Sorry, but I do not excuse the hate emanating from the left just because POC are the ones expressing it.

Yes. Omar was interviewed asking if she regretted calling Israel "evil," and she said she did NOT regret it. She also asked for leniency for young Americans in MN who were arrested for joining ISIS. I don't want immigrants who think this way in this country, let alone Congress.

I’m already sick of hearing “person of color”. I see it’s use quickly spreading to basically every person who isn’t lily white. Enough already.
