When questioned if she condemned actions by ANTIFA type like this terrorist incident Presely just clammed up and walked away with a smug look on her face. So what's your point here?
Nope, sorry I won't bite, that's absolute nonsense. Antifa is not part of the Democratic Party, Democrats do not support anarchists. However, the GOP definitely has a white supremacist problem.

Anyone who doesn't think so is ignorant, in my opinion. Not worth arguing the point if you don't comprehend - it's like arguing with White Supremacists. Their minds can't ever be changed to the day they die.

I agree, I guess a racist justifies in there mind they are not raciest. The latest Trump Rally clearly shows the Hate the audience has, the crowd Chanting "Send them back!" Send them back were? Three of the congress people in the "squad" were born in United States. Unfortunately Trump can't have a civil debate. Your either for him and the greatest person on the world, or don't support him then your an evil liberal communist bent on destroying this country. There no middle ground with Trump and apparently Trump supporters.

They avoided a big train wreck, IMO. The dems will not be so lucky.

The Democrats are the ones doing that, and the Party defends them.

So you live in denial. We knew that.


All the members of the squad were asked if they condemned Antifa's recent violence. All 4 refused to answer.

Why did they fail to condemn Omar's racist statements, which were real?

What "radical things" has President Trump done?

Laughable that you compare President Trump to a dictator after eight years of one who was nearly a dictator, Barack Hussein Obama, with all the illegal, unconstitutional actions he took, such as implementing DACA by Executive Order after Congress failed to pass it. That's only ONE example.
Really? From the EEOC website:

"Examples of potentially unlawful conduct include insults, taunting, or ethnic epithets, such as making fun of a person's foreign accent or comments like, 'Go back to where you came from,' whether made by supervisors or by co-workers,”

That phrase has been used against people of different races and ethnicity's for a very long time. To pretend that is is somehow an innocent comment makes it seem that you are being intentionally obtuse

IF YOU DON'T LOVE AND OBEY TRUMP YOU ARE A DEMON-RAT! I CAST YOU OUT DEMON! GET THE HELL OUT OF AMERICA. REAL AMERICANS LOVE TRUMP MORE THAN ANYTHING OR ANYONE EVER!!!!!

Trump Derangement Syndrome on full display.

Reality= Nationality and Race are totally separate things. Telling someone that if they dislike America as much as it sounds like they do, then go back to where you came from (home country), is not remotely connected to racism. Thats just common sense.

Unsurprisingly, this is the typical response from the left whenever anyone criticizes a leftist position. Its always the “race card”, rather than what its really about .... which is the lunacy of their position.

This group of nitwits are just juvenile morons stirring the pot and spewing inflammatory rhetoric. That they are non-white is immaterial .... if they were blonde haired, blue eyed expats from Sweden would change nothing .... they’d still be idiots.
