It's all political don't kid yourself. Everytime Trump says this stuff it's not in the name of racism it's to stir his base. Just like "lock her up" "lyin Ted" "low energy Jeb" "small hands Marco".


He uses these one liners to label and identify his enemies to accomplish his objective of dehumanize and minimizing their position. You can call Trump a racist but it goes far beyond that. You can call him stupid or a simpleton but you underestimate and discredit what he actually is doing. Unfortunately what I see him doing is far far worse than just the simple labels you would like to assign to him.

Yes, trump using racism is political. Thatís not what Iím saying, though. Anyone can disagree with Omar and the squad politically and thatís fine. What shouldnít have a middle is racism as a political tool.

Interesting find.

Maybe the IRS will show some interest. In the meantime, recharge the batteries in her bullhorn.

2009: Omar marries Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, according to a Hennepin County marriage certificate. Elmi, a British citizen, is the person some conservative media have alleged to be Omar’s brother as part of an immigration scheme. Omar has strongly denied this. Last year, the AP extensively looked into this allegation.

2011: Omar and Elmi end their relationship and divorce in their faith tradition, according to Omar, but they take no legal action to end the marriage until 2017.
Ewe.

No, he is not. The US isn't supposed to intrude in other countries' business. Wasn't that the lesson of the Vietnam, Iraq, etc., wars?

Yes of course Trump's use of racism is political.

But it still is racism.

Again, Trump isn't responsible for what the Saudis do. The US isn't supposed to intrude in other countries' business. Wasn't that the lesson of the Vietnam, Iraq, etc., wars?

But liberals will race to her defense. She has a winning hand - female, Muslim, and a POC. In liberals' eyes, she can do no wrong.
All 3 of those demographics arguably falls under privilege as well.

They already did. Omar committed campaign finance violations when she illegally used campaign funding to pay lawyers to "fix" her tax fraud problem. She had to pay thousands of dollars in back taxes plus penalties, and had to pay restitution plus fines for her campaign finance violations. She's just one fraud after another.

Eww.
Like I said, she's just one fraud after another.

It's America's business if a legal US resident living and working in DC for an American company who has children that are US citizens is kidnapped and murdered.
