Occasi-Cortez Channeling the Rent's too damn high guy

FTA:

 

It was not so long ago that we expected people who came to America as immigrants to (a) recognize that they were invited guests, rather than entitled squatters; and (b) not to bad mouth their new country. All of these immigrants, without exception, came here legally with some, such as my father, a Polish citizen, waiting years before they were allowed in thanks to national quotas. All of these immigrants, without exception, either had to bring money with them or have someone sponsor them so that they did not become a charge on the public.

 

And all of these immigrants, without exception, worked hard. Some made it financially; some, like my father, never did. But all of them recognized that their being in America was a rare privilege. Even though many missed their home country (the food, familiar customs, etc.) or, in the case of the Europeans, looked longingly at the cradle-to-grave care Europeans could afford in the 1970s thanks to America paying their defense costs, they still understood that they were lucky to have been invited into an extraordinary country. They recognized that, even though it might have been hard to leave their familiar world behind, they had made it possible for their children to have a much better life than anything they could have done in the old country. There were no exceptions to these values in my world of immigrants.

 

The viewpoint I’ve just described was Overton window on the subject of immigration for centuries: America is an incredible land of opportunity and, thankfully, a generous country. We Americans want to continue as we have done by inviting into our country hard workers and creative people who will be appropriately grateful for the opportunity given to themselves and their children. We recognize that new immigrants will inevitably suffer from homesickness and that they may view some of the things they left behind as more virtuous or better run than America, but we expect that, having freely volunteered to come here, they will treat their new home with love and respect. Moreover, that wasn’t just the American point of view; the immigrants came in with the same attitude.

 

Within the last decade or so, the Leftists changed this immigration Overton window. Pretty much ever since Obama hit the White House, Leftists have insulted America and then doubled-down on insulting America, and than increased their insults to America. Even as people from around the world have illegally stormed America’s borders, the Left has told us — and instructed these new immigrants to believe — that America is a stinking pile of poop country, filled with evil plutocrats and redneck racists. To the Left and the new immigrants they indoctrinate, America is a country to be loathed, not to be admired.

Moreover, immigrants are told to believe that whether we graciously invited them in or they voluntarily broke in to our country like common criminals.

 

You know that and I know that this is what the Leftists have done. Moreover, the millions of Americans who aren’t as political as we are know that this is what Leftists have done. They intuitively recognize that the new Overton window is as unrelated to reality as the current gender madness, but because of the Leftist Overton window shift, they are cowed into silence. The silent, sane majority in of Americans know that they can lose their jobs, get doxed, be socially humiliated, or be subject to brutal attacks if they suggest that people who were living in dirt poor, war torn, corrupt countries were blessed to come here. It would be even worse were these silenced Americans to state the obvious conclusion: If these new immigrants cannot show gratitude for the country that took them in, but insist that it’s the most evil country in the world and that their dirt poor, war torn, corrupt homeland is better, they should stop taking up space in America and return to their natal lands.

 

In other words, Trump stated the obvious. And by his willingness to state the obvious, he has returned the obvious to the realm of public discourse. He has shifted the Overton window back to a more normal, common sense debate. It wasn’t a mistake of epic proportions. It was a brilliant insistence on having public debate occur in reality world, not in the Leftist’s dystopian fantasy world.

Was what Trump tweeted more or less racist than his tweets regarding Elizabeth Warren's race?

Only one woman was not from America.

 

And he didn't say she should go back to where she's from because of her race.  You did.

 

Again, it goes back to the first thing I said in this response:  it's about ideology.

 

You're correct in that he was attacking their ideology.  Why he just didn't say if you don't like our country feel free to leave is beyond me.

 

However, his tweet clearly states that he thinks more than one progressive Congresswomen is from another country.  I'm assuming he thought at least two of them weren't from America because of what they look like.  That's the most generous interpretation.  I'd point to him being ignorant (a consistency with Trump) over racist/xenophobic.

They called him "the occupant", all pushed for impeachment, said he was credibly accused of serious crimes including Russian collusion, says he's making women drink from toilets, Omar repeated the "grab them by the *****" and "***** hole countries" lines (on live TV). They looked spoiled and out of touch. 

 

In other words, it will make them the story for the week -- not any of the candidates running for office. It'll make Nancy Pelosi have to go back into trying to prevent an impeachment push. That will deepen the civil war going on with the prog-left and establishment DNC. 

 

And more.

 

Here's a highlight -- 

 

 

 

 

And AOC also said 'we don't run away from a land we love' which inadvertently says Omar doesn't love Somalia as she sure as heck got out of there.  Might that be because it is a ###hole?

he has said every one of those things..every single one . I agree it was not about 4 random people, it was about women of color who ancestry is either African or Middle Eastern..it was targeted , on that we agree

what cha waitin for?

Thank you for the thoughful reply

 

1) we will disagree that one must mention race to write/speak a racist idea. "Go back where they came from" breeding concept" are  statements most would say are racist statements, no mention of color.Have you ever heard anyone else say "breed" about humans having children. I see you said they they come here to have children, not they come here to breed.

 

2) And i must apologize to @leh-nerd skin-erd and you, and the board as it does seem i was wrong and it was Tucker Carlson who said the immigrants were "dirty"..nit Trump. That is my mistake

Issue #1. The ladies in question are politicians, and say inflammatory things that most people would not say to friends and neighbors.  As I stated earlier, these are not ladies at a Dairy Queen eating Peanut Buster Parfaits singled out for random commentary.  They are politicians skilled in the art of rhetoric.  We agree on this?

 

2.  As for your apology, it has been said that all white men look alike, and Tucker Carlson & Donald J. Trump are white men, so I can see where the confusion arises. I accept your apology though none was necessary.

Yes...but doesn't the constant outrage get tiresome?  I mean, how do you sustain the immaturity?  Don't you have to stop your temper tantrums and take a breath sometimes?

One thing we’re apparently not going to get is a condemnation of either Antifa or the attack on the ICE facility in Tacoma. Just like squad member Omar, Ocasio-Cortez just kept on walking:

You don't have principles or integrity, you have histrionic reactions to a candied yam.  I pity you.

Considering who it was, I thought it was an honest question. Or, at least it didn't seem like an unreasonable question - I wouldn't have put it past her. 🙂
