Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, July 18, 2019

At an arena rally in Greenville, North Carolina, on Wednesday evening, President Donald Trump quadrupled down on his recent racist attacks on four female Democratic lawmakers. He also chastised one of them for using "the big, fat, vicious ... F-word" against him, alleging, "that's not somebody that loves our country." "She looks down with contempt on the hardworking American, saying that ignorance is pervasive in many parts of this country," the president said of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), to cheering from the crowd, many of whom began chanting, "Send her back!" -- enthusiastically joining in on the collective anti-Omar hate. Trump, of course, did nothing to object to the chant, and soon thereafter reiterated his position on the four congresswomen and like-minded Americans: "If they don't love [the country], tell them to leave it."

This is an increasing sentiment. People feel a legitimate response to pointing out wrongs is to say "stop talking about it", "it's hysteria to talk about it", "it's hateful to America/armed forces to talk about it", if you talk about it then they will vote against Dems", and other variations.

This isn't a surprise.

They only let his most rabid supporters into these things and remove anybody not enthusiastic enough.

I'll bet the average yearly wage in that place is barely above minimum wage and the average IQ well short of average. How else do you explain continued support from a working class individual?

Inciting violence against a legally elected member of Congress is probably illegal, and make no mistake, that is what he was doing. Trump is attempting to divide the nation to help himself in 2020. No Preident in my lifetime has ever tried so hard to turn Americans into factions that hate each other. This is how you destroy democracy which, IMHO, is his intention.

"If they don't love [the country], tell them to leave it."

That's how I feel about Trump supporters. They seem to be the ones so dissatisfied with America as it stands.

They've lost interest in America. They're waiting for Trump, or someone, to tell them what they want next.

Actually, this chant seems slightly less egregious than "Lock her up". Notice, though, how it seems to be women who they want to intimidate.

Waddya know?

No one could have anticipated...

SherpyDerpy advised that this would disappear if we just stopped talking about it and discussed policy agendas instead (forgetting that human rights is also a policy issue). Look where appeasement has gotten us.

But you haven't. Democrats have predictably responded to Trumps every word by flying into plate glass windows in a panic. The media is breathlessly denouncing everything Trump says, playing it in a loop, instead of educating the public on liberal policy.

The liberal talking heads are all talking about Trump, and "what Trump said". Not selling Medicare for All, and how it will be paid for.

But we have. Look at Warren and Bernie and Pete. Even the House made a polite move to officially censure.

It played out your way and you were wrong. Suck on that.

You must have missed the many talks about that. I knew you would, because you are a fake supporter.

Bernie wants medicare for all with a tax to pay for it. Biden wants a public option for whoever wants to buy it.

House Dems just passed $15 minimum wage too.

We could argue all day about the meaning of communism and socialism and get nowhere fast. Xi and Putin have joined the capitalists and it is disingenuous to still call them communists. Perhaps the strongest socialist policies persist in Cuba, which like China is also a dictatorship. But the USA has socialist policies even without these four women who now represent the Democrat party at its best, standing up for the working class.
