Troll Level: Epic
Yesterday morning Donald Trump sent out a series of tweets that, according to some, appeared to target 4 recently elected Democrat Congresswomen. My good friend and colleague Bonchie reported on this here. I also did a hot take on it, here. My response to Bonchie yesterday, was meant to convey the idea that Trump’s tweets weren’t a bad thing but were likely a good thing.
Given a night to reflect, I’ve decided to “revise and extend my remarks,” so to speak. I now believe that the President has indeed reached Troll Level: Epic. As expected, the left went nuts over yesterday’s series of tweets. As also expected, the epithet they immediately started screeching was, “Racist!” Of course, that’s just hogwash. As Neil Boortz used to opine, “It’s not the color, it’s the culture.” What sane person wants to import the culture of Mogadishu to Detroit? Wait. Never mind.
Trump’s comments had nothing to do with racism. Except for the few fringe idiots up in the hills, there really are very few Americans who hate blacks or other minorities. However, the vast majority of Americans are getting well nigh tired of being called racists at every turn, merely for standing up to leftists and their destruction of America agenda.
I have some news for the left. Most Americans, including traditionally Democrat union members in Detroit, agree with Trump’s tweets and here’s why. Let’s walk through how this played out. The President tweeted out a series of tweets not naming anyone in particular, though most of us could guess the identity of at least one of his implied targets. That was the bait and the left took it.
Immediately excoriating the President, House Speaker Pelosi decided to officially put names on the President’s targets. Stay with me here. These four women have a history that ranges from saying merely stupid things, all the way to profanity-laced racism. Rep. Cortez says so many idiotic things, that there are entire Facebook memes with her face on them. Rep. Omar was castigated by her own party for anti-Semitic remarks. Rep. Tlaib is well known for her profanity when discussing the President.
The fourth (heretofore unknown) member of the Cortez “posse” provides the best example, especially since the left is working so hard to make the President out to be a racist. During a round table regarding black opportunities and supposedly referring to members of the Congressional Black Caucus, Ayanna Pressley said, “We don’t need black faces that don’t want to be a black voice. We don’t need Muslims that don’t want to be a Muslim voice.” That sounds pretty racist to me.
Here is the result. President Trump has once again baited the left into showing America just how insane they really are. He has baited Nancy Pelosi into coming out in public support of one idiot and three racists. All of them advance the interests of foreigners over that of Americans they are supposed to be representing, but clearly despise. Blue collar Democrats in Detroit aren’t going to forget this. The icing on the cake, is that these four won’t show her one iota of loyalty for defending them.
Troll Level: EPIC.
