Send Her Back

by | Jul 23, 2019 | Opinion

You know, it’s funny. We’ve watched racist moment after racist moment be excused by sycophants of the Orange Fuhrer.

We’ve watched the Republican Party betray all of it’s supposed ‘values’ for a reality television star who sold them an image of who he wanted them to believe he was.

I laid in bed last night, iPad in hand, watching Twitter erupt.

I watched *some* Republicans say “That’s IT! This has gone too far!”. I watched a Libertarian page with a large following tweet something to the effect of “As you know, I hate Ilhan Omar, but we can not tolerate this! This is not America!”.

Of course, the only thing that was zeroed in on was him saying he ‘hates’ Omar, rather than focusing on the fact that even a guy who despises her recognizes that we just witnessed the darkest moment in modern American history and it can’t be accepted.

But hey…such is Twitter.

I’m not as shocked by ‘Send Her Back!’ as I think I’m supposed to be, because I realized long ago that ‘Trumpism’ was the start of something much more insidious and ugly, and that each excusal was just permission to escalate.

If you have ANY delusions that there could ever be a watershed moment that would suddenly wake people up to how far Trump is willing to go, you’re a fool.

You don’t understand who they are.

You’re looking at them as plainly as they can present themselves.
The way they want you to see them.
The way that they are entirely unembarrassed representing themselves.

And at this point, anyone who can still find allegiance with this madness for any reason is just as complicit in my mind.

There’s really just nothing left to say on that front with me, so please don’t bother defending yourself.

Let’s just say we’re on different sides of the aisle in a big way, and I’m not talking about politics.

This group has spent the last several years professing that they don’t hate immigrants…just illegal ones.

“Just come here the right way!”.

Well, now what?

I don’t agree with a lot of Omar’s politics.

But here’s reality…

Ilhan Omar emigrated here with her family, excelled in her studies, has a fellowship, became a citizen of this country in 2000, and has worked her way to the House of Representatives.

Donald Trump dodged the draft, inherited his daddy’s money, had Michael Cohen threatened to sue any school that released his grades, speaks with the most limited vocabulary of the last 15 Presidents, and won’t allow anyone to see what his *real* financial status is, because he’s still trying to sell everyone on the ‘billionaire’ label that was created for him.

Which one of these two do you think a ‘shining city on a hill’ would be filled with?
If that city were to continue shining, that is?

Last night, as I watched the video of this racist madness that has swept our nation, I couldn’t help but think back to John McCain during a campaign rally correcting a woman who called Barack Obama an untrustworthy Arab.

McCain responded “No, ma’am. No, ma’am. He’s a decent family man…citizen…that I just happen to have disagreements with on fundamental issues.”

But that was John McCain.
For this group….he’s a traitor.
He isn’t ‘American’ enough.

For this group, hatred, classlessness, and deceit are the order of the day.

That’s their ‘Great America’.
