Trump’s “racist” tweets cement the Democrats’ congressional leadership to its least-viable radical fringe.
Tucker Carlson: By singling out these four members of Congress, the president also highlighted their prominence in the Democratic Party. Six months ago, these were just four young lefties in a sea of 235 House Democrats. Now, they are the Democratic Party.
By making the attack in this manner, he more or less ensured that every Democrat would be forced to defend AOC, Omar, et al. And that future criticisms of them—from any side—could be dismissed as just more bigotry. This was a political masterstroke.
It will be fascinating to see if President Trump wins his dice roll against four radical congresswomen. Mr. Trump is gambling that Americans have had enough of the radical left and is using his vast power to demonize Ms. Ocasio-Cortez and the others.
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) said on Monday that Muslims shouldn't be asked to "condemn terrorists.:…Omar said she doesn't expect white Americans to condemn white people who commit crimes such as mass shootings.
Pressley never even used the words “racist” or “racism.” Using the words correctly, she accused Trump of making remarks that were “xenophobic and bigoted.” That’s a far cry from, and much more defensible than, Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota accusing Trump of “white supremacy” and of an agenda of a “white nationalist.”
MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow conducted a congratulatory interview with Minnesota Democrat congresswoman Ilhan Omar Monday, asserting Omar’s visible position as the new face of the Democrat Party.
Among Democrats these days, it’s a Hobbesian war of all against all. No, that’s not quite right. It’s more of a Seinfeldian war of imagined slights and peevish insults, a slap-fight of grievance and innuendo, a “you-started-it-no-you-started it” toddlers’ rodeo. It’s Mad Max beyond Blunderdome.
Observing the clash between Trump and these women, the rank and file of the Democratic Party are being forced to take sides. Many will inevitably side with the fighters, as Democratic moderates appear timid and tepid.
This is a president that loves supporters of all races, and goes after critics of all races. His battles are about politics, policy and core beliefs. Those who support him could not care less about the sloppy assertion that these particular critics came from other countries (true of only Omar).
Stelter attacked his liberal colleagues at the broadcast networks for sounding more disinterested: "many" or "Democrats" were "calling it racist." He was pressuring people to bend to the notion that Trump's racism was a fact, and not an opinion.
Jesse Lee Peterson: Establishment Democrats are being forced to take far-left positions. As the Democrats are cannibalizing their own and pushing for open borders, we need to shore up support for President Trump and conservative Republicans. If we stay united behind the president, we will defeat these radical Democrats and Keep America Great!
Amid an outpouring of cries of bigotry and racism from the perpetually aggrieved left, President Donald Trump isn’t backing down from a series of tweets on Sunday calling out a group of radical, hard-left freshman Democrats known as “the squad.”…The manufactured outrage over Trump’s earlier tweets prompted him to come back to the issue, but make no mistake, he wasn’t backing down.
Over the weekend, the Democratic Civil War spilled out into the open, consuming social media and setting a blaze on Twitter that could be seen rising to the sky all the way from barren wasteland of MySpace.
Kurt Schlichter: The pain of your enemy should be your joy, and we conservatives are pegging the joymeter right about now watching the political sepsis that is CongressKid AOC and her merry band of idiots running rampant within the flabby body of the Democrat Party. There’s only one solution to the gangrene caused by her and that brother-marrying weirdo who cheers for the wrong side in Black Hawk Down…
