If you hate America, why not leave? THAT'S UNAMERICAN, YOU RACIST! Political Cartoon by A.F. Branco
Trump insults the fab-4 of Anti-Americanism: the far left progressive caucus that's going to get him re-elected. His quip against their (freshmen Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley) constant dishonest rants about how bad America is, and how great everywhere else is, is the age old comment, "you should go fix there first", only he added "and then come back and show us how it's done". Idiots like AOC pretended that this was about race and that Trump didn't know where they were from and was telling all people of her kind to get out. It was more personal/targeted than that. FakeNews outlets like CNN propagated the lie in their headline and omitted key context. But anyone who read his tweets knew better, which is why CNN intentionally didn't link to the source. CNN's pundits made the same claim about Melania, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio (before and after Trump): proving either CNN is racist, or this kind of attack is normal fare in politics and on CNN. Only when Republicans do it, it's racist. Pelosi escalated to try to create a resolution condemning these xenophobic tweets (rolls eyes), this is all to cover for the anti-American sentiments of the freshman democrats.


❝(1) So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who ORIGINALLY came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly...

(2) ...and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run. Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how....

(3) ...it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!❞
President Donal Trump

A few basic facts:

  • It's not racist to say if you don't like it here, leave:
    • My grandfather used to say that all the time to my gay card-carrying-communist uncle during Holiday arguments, "any time you want Roger, I'll buy you a one-way ticket to the Soviet Fucking Union"... . (And he knew he was from here). It is a traditional claim against anti-American marxists, whether they were born here or not.
    • I've said it to people who talked about how great it was somewhere else, or who couldn't see the balances here... I said, "great, go there and tell us how it is". Change your life for the better. Either you'll grow and come back, or it is a better fit for you. Either way, we'll both be happier.
    • When Peirs Morgan was being particularly annoying, 110,000 people signed a petition saying "send him back". No one called it racist. [1]
    • Senator Dick Durbin (D) tried to do the same with an immigration investigation into Sebastian Gorka.[2]
    • The left is using their condescending double standards of either (a) It's different because she's not white/male (b) it's different because she has a (D) after her name. But either way it is condescending hypocrisy.
  • The left is trying to re-invent the language and make it mean things it does not. Racism is saying that you think one race is superior to another, or there should be separate laws for each -- it's not saying that one (or four) anti-American assholes are assholes, and saying they should go back to where their families are from and "prove it" that they can make a country better (and then come back). That's racially insensitive and jerky behavior but it isn't racism. Those repeating that it is are ignorant or dishonest.
  • If you read what he actually said, he's attacking their anti-American philosophy (not their race). He's not saying that all of their ilk should get out -- he's saying they should prove that they can make a country better on easier targets for improvement. And he says once they do that, they can come back and show us how it's done here. Again, racists attack groups, they don't marry and hire and partner outside their race (multiple times), and they don't say once you've proven you know what you're doing, you can come back.
  • "the people that have called you racist, sexist, homophobic Nazis for 3 yrs are concerned about a harsh comment"? and "Same media fanning themselves right now can’t seem to get worked up about words like Fascist, white supremacy, and Nazi getting thrown around regularly. Show me some consistency and fairness in your reporting and we’ll talk." ~ Carl Gustav on twitter
  • Ilhan Omar and Pelosi went to Ghana (on America's dime), to commemorate the 400 years anniversary of the slave trade (never mind that it predates this by 10,000 years), and Omar tried to mock trump about "send her back". Only it felt like a giant fail. Was him suggesting she go visit racist or not? Why are the two doing selfie smiley and duck lip photos at what's the equivalent of visiting black Auschwitz? And the math/history challenged might not notice that 400 > 240 years (when our country was founded). I think the left is trying to wallow in how bad America is, and bind us to the slave trade, but the historically literate know that one of the first things our country did (in 1807) when gaining independence, was end the slave trade that we had inherited from the Europeans, Muslims and Africans. So it existed for 272 years (or thousands of years) before the U.S. Constitution, and we abolished the slave trade within 16 years of our Constitution. Not that bad. [3]

So Trump's behavior might be boorish, but it isn't racist. Those in the Press that are saying it is are either ignorant, illiterate, or dishonest.

Read the tweets and think to yourself, why would he say "originally" came from, if he didn't know they were born here?

Why would a racist say, "Then come back and show us how it is done"? That's not racism, that's trash talk. Which is why FakeNews outlet CNN omitted it from their commentary.


Married Immigrants, dated black women, employed minorities, has Jewish grandchildren. If he's racist, I'm the tooth fairy.

Others can disagree. Tweets don't give you a lot of room for nuance and Trump doesn't have much of that to begin with. Maybe someone who refuses to read the context can assume that Trump didn't know that 3 of the 4 were born here, but I find it unlikely, and I'm just sharing my view. This won't stick because that's not racist, that's a standard asshole's response of, "if you don't like it here, leave", and, "If your life sucks, then change it". Why shouldn't you tell a coven of ignorant twats (British usage of that term) to go discover the flaws of the places they seem to idolize, and come back when they know what the fuck they're talking about? Not nice. But not racist either.

How do I know it isn't racist? Because he didn't say all Somali's should leave, he said one could (and come back). That's a personal attack, not an attack against a whole race of people -- try to keep up.

  1. Do you think he would bed or hire a hot Somali that wasn't anti-American? Where did Kara Young's Mom's family come from? Real racist germaphobes aren't dating brown chicks or buying Miss Universe Pageants to give them jobs: they want to distance themselves from them.

  2. Do you believe he would have said that to a German, Chinese, Japanese, Arab, South American, Briton, Swede, Pole, Russian, and so on? If you don't, then you haven't been paying attention to his, "attack those who attack him first" style. And if you know he would, then this isn't about color or race, it's about something else. That something else was they were attacking America, and he said, "then go show us how it's done"... and come back if it works.

So sure, he's a dick... but not all dicks are racists. But all people that falsely accuse others of being racists, are dicks.

The Master Baiter
Trump is either a communications genius, or the media/left are complete idiots to be outclassed by a self gratifying dolt. Look at the basics of the latest histrionics over (1) the Racist attack on fab-four: Trump shit-tweets how radical the most fanatical 4 in the far left party, "The Squad" are. The left has to defend them (defining themselves as like them), or admit he was right. (2) The next week it is about Baltimore: Trump shit-tweets the truth about how bad Elijah Cummings district is. The left and the media can admit truth, or make fools of themselves calling him a racist and denying reality: they choose the latter.

The far-left and their media keeps going with "anything Trump says is wrong".... so he keeps saying, "the sun is bright" and they keep saying, "no it is NOT, that's racist!" And the sane public remembers the abrasive truth of Trump, and the foolish dishonesty of the media/left. And the Democrats think they're winning? Either he’s intentionally baiting them, as part of his plan, or they’re so incompetent that they can’t beat a bumbling buffoon and his shit tweets. So if Trump's an idiot, they are dumber. Or he's been using the left's constant under-estimation of him, to bait them into shooting themselves in the foot. (They win the little fight, by losing the bigger one). And the #resistance can't stop falling for it. Either doesn’t bode well for the left.
