At a townhall on immigration in Queens this weekend, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told her constituents that Trump’s border policies had nothing to do with enforcing U.S. law or saving our country from an invasion. No, it’s just about racism.
“All you need to do is hear what the President did this week to know this is not about immigration at all. Because once you start telling American citizens to quote ‘go back to your own countries,’ this tells you that this President’s policies are not about immigration, it’s about ethnicity and racism,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
Of course, this accusation gets harder to swallow when you realize that Ocasio-Cortez and her Squad cry racism at the drop of a hat. After all, they’ve insinuated that Speaker Nancy Pelosi is also racist for “singling out women of color” for criticism. They seem to believe that because they are minorities, they are somehow above critique. So it doesn’t really matter if Trump tells them to “go back” or if he makes fun of their IQ or if he simply states, in measured terms, that he disagrees with their politics. If you talk bad about Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley, or Ilhan Omar, you’re a racist.
So, when that’s the case, why even bother listening to what these kooks say?
On Saturday, AOC said that Trump’s “biggest mistake was that he said the quiet part out loud.”
“Because we know that he’s been thinking this the entire time. But he’s been keeping it in here. And this week, it went out here. When he started telling American citizens — where are we going to go? We’re going to stay right here, that’s where we’re going to go. We’re not going anywhere,” she said.
Yeah, no one thought for a second you were going anywhere. No one cares if you go anywhere. No one cares about any of this except you and your media pals.
What we very much care about is how you and your progressive friends are quickly taking over the Democratic Party. We very much want voters to see that, to understand that, and to process what that means. We want them to know that a vote for the Democratic Party in 2020 is a vote for YOU, even if the nominee turns out to be a moderate like Biden. Your oversized presence in the party is an omen of things to come, and it’s why we can’t afford to let Democrats back into the White House. There’s too much at stake.
So fine. Stay. But if you think screaming “the world is racist” every time you hear something you don’t like is going to move the needle in this country, you may soon learn otherwise.
Then again, if your only desire is to get your face on television whenever possible, you may not actually care.
