Trump just put a spotlight on America Hate. It is NOT OK, and most citizens don't like the position of these four loons, which is anti American and pro Illegal Foreigners. He forced the Democrats to endorse the America Hate of these four, and others in the party. It IS the Democrat Party.

Can someone please tell me if I am a POC? I've been told that Jews aren't white, so now I am having an identity crisis.

If it gives you any hints, I am a very fair-skinned Jew with light brown hair and blue eyes. I use SPF 30 on the beach. But now I'm wondering if I'm a POC. I need to know so I can fill out the census correctly.

The arrogant, defiant Omar is now introducing anti-Israel legislation in Congress. I need to start a thread on this alone - her attempt to destroy Israel through economic pressure, right on the heels of being called out for antisemitism.

(I'll start the thread later. I'm going to be out all morning and not able to participate.)

Well the way I see it, a Jew is as Middle Eastern as a Palestinian, so if Rashida Tlaib can call herself a POC, so can you.

Im Hawaiian, darker than most people I know, but I consider myself white. I got no time for this identity crap.

Thanks. I'm hoping you know I was being sarcastic. But hey.....maybe I should start claiming POC to get advantages. If Warren did it, so can I.

That issue alone will put Trump back in office, but liberals are so arrogant that they refuse to see that Americans don't want what they're pushing.

And don't get me started on giving reparations and/or house downpayments to black families.
Then why do Republicans gerrymander people out of their districts who don't look like them?
And why did Trump try to use the census to map out the way people look, not how they vote?

Yes, I picked up your sarcasm. Funny how progressives call people white when it serves their numbers game, yet formerly-white Hispanics like AOC suddenly become POC when it can be used as a weapon against Trump.

Let me ask you-who has gotten more "air time" in the last week? The 4 bigoted idiots that make up the "squad"-or the 24 candidates running for the nomination? Who do you think the average person has a better chance of recognizing-AOC or Klochubar? Omar or Gillibrand?

Very few "moderates" have even heard of most of the Dem candidates (Gropey Joe, Screech Sanders and Fauxahauntas being possible exceptions). But very few haven't heard of the squad. Who knows about the policies much of the field is running on? Vs who has heard of the "Green New Deal"? Heck, even the candidates are picking up on this idiotic policy. They may be stupid. They may be a bunch of racists. They may hate this nation. But they are known...as the new face of the Dem party. And sadly-they really seem to be a caricature or conglomeration of the entire field of candidates in this cycle.

yep!

Even my liberal friends have said that the Democratic party must keep these four women there because they must play the race card.

"You attack these women, you must hate minorities and you must be a racist."

So yes, they are the face of the dem party.
