Right now, the left and its media are fuming over the chant in North Carolina that erupted during a Trump rally that saw attendees repeating “send her back” in reference to Rep. Ilhan Omar.
My social media feed is filthy with it, and claims that this is proof that the right is as racist as they’ve always claimed. They virtue signal that kicking Omar out of the country is a horrible thing to suggest and that this is, in fact, her country now.
The left is lighting torches and grabbing pitchforks over it. Or at least, they will. First, they have to get back from their #DeportGorka rally.
Yes, the left that is currently virtue signaling over the horrid concept of deporting an immigrant back to their birth country over things she said is also the same left that was willing to deport an immigrant back to their birth country over things he said.
Sebastion Gorka, deputy assistant to Trump in 2017 and now an outspoken right-leaning analyst who has become famous in his own right, seems to have the ability to drive the left absolutely insane. With that power, he’s actually caused members of the left to shout for his forced deportation back to the UK where he’s originally from.
In fact, the left created an entire hashtag around it with #DeportGorka all the way back in…this week.
#DeportGorka He literally came from somewhere else with an Interpol warrant behind him.

It’s not your country. You’re not from here and you lied on your citizenship paperwork.
You’re the dangerous foreigners we’ve been warned about. #DeportGorka

This goes on for pages, so feel free to check out the hashtag for yourself.
Gorka, like Trump, never said anything racist, yet they’re throwing accusations at him of Nazism. Meanwhile, Omar can’t seem to stop speaking badly about Jewish people, and is generally very antisemitic. In fact, Omar recently compared Israel to Nazi Germany, which is so out of the bounds of reality that it’s hard to understand why she’s not locked up in a padded room.
Still, the left continues pretending Omar is somewhere between an angel and an all-American hero who is having evil racist chants thrown at her at Trump rallies for no reason. To be clear, the chant has nothing to do with race, and everything to do with Omar’s apparent dislike of America and seeming appreciation of terrorist groups. Even so, Trump wasn’t a fan of the chant, and as I’ve written, neither was I, but I digress.
The hypocrisy here is entirely apparent. The left can encourage deportation of anyone on the right strictly for wrong-think without any blowback. In fact, they’ve tried to have Gorka deported officially back in 2017 under claims that he belonged to a Hungarian far-right group. However, if the right suggests deportation to a famous Democrat who refuses to condemn Al Qaeda and calls Trump supporters racist while spouting antisemitic rhetoric, that’s suddenly crossing the line.
