Umm ... I don't think you understand. One is a compliment.

Anyone surprised that the Grand Old Party is a bunch of old racist white men?

Seems like it has been that way forever.
Trump never mentioned anything about race. You would have to assume immigrants, both legal and illegal, and their descendants are only of certain races to perceive Trump's tweets as racist. What this has actually done is to expose Dems and the MSM for the racists many of us already knew they are.

Oh! There is propaganda. That is politics. What the poster means is that not all Trump supporters blindly believe everything he says and that they aren't stupid. They know he is doing it primarily for HIS best interests.

So, "Typical White Person" is a compliment? Obama meant that she had the typical PREJUDICES a White person has. That was in no way a compliment.

Well ... I think we need some clarity. If it wasn't targeted against African Americans, Latino Americans etc. then which group was he referring to with his remark? Italian Americans? Irish Americans? German Americans? British Americans?

What a load of crap! They're openly and publicly anti-Semitic bigots. There's no room in Congress for those hateful bigots.

Not sure which is worse: allowing to be played for an idiot who believes the propaganda, or knowing they are being lied to and condone/embrace/repeat it.

Its a choice between being an idiot or dishonest.

Apparently you don't realize that most Americans are tired of these constant accusations of "racism". Polls show that AOC and Omar are universally hated by Americans.


Now the dem party has, as its leaders, two congresswomen who are hated by most Americans.


Pelosi, before this most recent event, was trying to distance the party from "The Squad" as much as possible, as she know how damaging they have been. Now Trump has forced them to not only abandon that effort, but embrace "The Squad" as the new voice of the dem party.


Talk about a turd in the punchbowl!

The Democrat Party is OPENLY anti-Semitic and anti-Israel. Even their "woke" secular, progressive Jewish members.
