But you’ve got nowhere to go, do you? So learn how to live with people that you don’t like, even if it’s based on fantastic nonsense like the stuff you’re spewing about Omar.
I hope she does stay. She's a moron and an albatross around the neck of the democratic party. But if there are irregularities or downright lies in her immigration application, I want action taken to revoke her citizenship. If you get in on false pretenses, you've got to go. You don't hire a lawyer to fix immigration issues if you don't have immigration issues.

By the way, I have everywhere to go. I choose to be here.

The only lies are the ones spread by Trump. I haven't seen any evidence that she has done anything wrong. Contrary to wishful thinking.

Out of all the other outrages that Trump has imposed on this country and all of his misdeeds and crimes, this "Send them back" incident may be the one thing that sinks him. He has revealed an un-American attitude that can't be denied and the fallout from it will keep growing.

hahaha ... pretty much the other way around. Are you a communist too? Have the courage of your convictions and let people know. Stop acting like you can divine what others believe and come out of your Lenin closet.

Next piece,

In Omar's “vision” for America, which is spelled out on her campaign website, she wants to abandon the “capitalist system” in favor of a “fair and just economy” in which the federal government guarantees everyone jobs, housing, health care and free abortions.

She is a communist. And you probably are too.
Ha! You're really getting a roll with the hostility and the insults. Must give you some kind of thrill or something.

In the section of her "Vision" where she addresses capitalism, titled "Establish Economic Justice for Working Families," the word capitalism appears once:
The capitalist system has led to a concentration of wealth in a small handful of elites while working people suffer. We must stop the exploitation of working people to create a fair and just economy.
Again, you made the rest up.

I did see the phrase on her Twitter feed, though, but it was a citizen responding to one of her tweets. Here it is in context:
@Ilhan
While wages are low, more students rely on multiple jobs, loans and credit cards to afford college tuition and necessary expenses.
9:08 AM - 6 Jun 2019

@socialAk47
Jun 6
Replying to @Ilhan
Capitalism never solves the problem of low wages. Instead it extends high rate credit to low wage workers, further ensnaring them into debt and misery. The capitalist system itself needs to be abolished and replaced with a true working class democracy

@brt24982424
Jun 6
This is the dumbest tweet i’ve read so far today.

Bye!

Omar pleaded for a lighter sentence for an ISIS recruit: https://abcstlouis.com/news/nation-w...r-isis-recruit
Is this what your so concerned about?


She wrote to the judge: “Incarcerating 20-year-old men for 30 or 40 years is essentially a life sentence. Society will have no expectations of the to be 50 or 60-year-old released prisoners; it will view them with distrust and revulsion. Such punitive measures not only lack efficacy, they inevitably create an environment in which extremism can flourish, aligning with the presupposition of terrorist recruitment.”

I see where she’s coming from to some extent but it committed the crime and now he’s locked up for it.
End of story.

What are you’re thoughts on Trump the reporter Jamal Khashoggi being killed by the Saudis?
Trump turned a blind eye to that so so we could sell them $110 billion dollars in weapons.

Trump looked reminiscent of Mussolini as he smirked and remained silent for 13 seconds as they chanted.

What do you think a "fair and just" economy means? Everything in her vision statement is designed to replace capitalism. She's not a fan.

And I know you're a communist. You had a whole thread called "We need communism now!"
