On Tuesday, House Democrats held a vote on a resolution to condemn President Trump’s tweets as racist and inciting fear. The resolution, which a draft copy can be found linked in this article, pulls in a lot of things like the Statue of Liberty, Ronald Reagan, John F Kennedy and more. The goal was to force Republicans to choose between the “racist” President and the Democrats.
Unfortunately, it’s rather tough to prove President Trump is a racist from these tweets. His tweets certainly have the implications of xenophobia behind them, but far from anything regarding race. The Democrats were quick to jump on President Trump, but where were they in calling out their own?
The Democrats have refused to call out Representative Ilhan Omar when she made anti-Semitic comments, instead voting to pass a resolution against “all forms of hate.” Where were the Democrats yesterday when Representative Omar refused to speak out against Al Qaida?
Then there is Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who has been in the headlines for some time now. Where were the Democrats when she began this lie of concentration camps? Where was the outcry from Democrats with her refusal to condemn antifa? AOC’s language was used in the antifa member’s manifesto before his attack on an ICE facility.
Where were the Democrats when Representative Ayanna Pressley refused to acknowledge the office of President of the United States, simply referring to President Trump as “the occupant of the White House.” Even after Nancy Pelosi came out and claimed she respected the White House and office of President, but apparently it’s not required of anyone else.
Let’s not forget about Representative Rashida Tlaib, who has made many famous comments. We can start first with how the Holocaust gives her such a calm feeling and her other anti-Semitic statements. Democrats certainly did not call her out for that. Where were the Democrats when in her first week in office she disrespected the President and said that she was going to go in and “impeach the motherf*****.”
Democratic leadership is full of nothing but egotism and condescension towards American citizens and President Trump. They want to make the focus on racism, but the focus is on the fact that they do not support America or American values. Polls show that these freshmen representatives are not supported by the American people. They may be called “the squad” but they are some of the worst representatives ever elected in US history.
Democrats can attempt to force the Republicans to take a stand on President Trump’s tweets, but Republicans should not fall for it. Republicans should also argue that all forms of hate have already been included in a resolution, why is a specific one needed against President Trump? The only reason is because to Democrats, he’s public enemy number one. AOC cannot accomplish anything in Congress for her hatred of President Trump, as can be seen in her tweet on Tuesday.
It’s great to see that not only is AOC an economic genius, climate change scientist, but also a psychiatrist. She’s worked her magic on Trump and knows his mind and his heart. It’s unfortunate that the only solutions she can ever come up with are foolishness.
