    If you actually read his tweets, it’s not really bad. In nutshell he’s saying these folks came here from dumps and are trying to tell the US how to improve and they should go fix those places first and only then tell us how to fix the US.

      As always, Trump could have said "it" better. But the gist of his statement reflects that truth about people from lesser countries coming to change America to their way, when the country they should be helping is their country of origin.
      It's just odd to have a Somalian telling us how to be best Americans.

        Tucker Carlson explained it more clearly and didn't hold back on his program this past week. He was speaking expressly about Ilhan Omar who is an immigrant.

        Like many of you, we’ve been watching with amazement and alarm as the leaders of the Democratic Party, day after day, attack the country they say they want to govern.

        It’s remarkable, and a very new development. Just a few years ago, even the most liberal Democrats in Congress felt obligated to say patriotic things about America. They may not have felt it, but they said it. Now, it’s routine to hear Democratic presidential candidates question the basic legitimacy of the United States.

        Even supposed moderates, like Joe Biden, join in.

        That should worry you. No country can survive being ruled by people who hate it. We deserve better. For all of our country’s flaws, this is still the best place in the world. Most immigrants know that and that is why they come here. It's also why we've always been glad to have them here.

        But now, there are signs that some people who move here from abroad don't like this country at all. As we told you last night, one of those people now serves in our Congress.

        She scolded us, called us names, showered us with contempt. It's infuriating. More than that, it is also ominous. The United States admits more immigrants more than any other country on Earth, more than a million every year. The Democratic Party demand we increase that by and admit far more. OK, Americans like immigrants, but immigrants have got to like us back.

        That's the key, it's essential. Otherwise, the country falls apart.

        REP. ILHAN OMAR CALLS FOR END TO CUSTOMS AND BORDER PROTECTION

        We made that point last night. We will continue to make that point because it's true and it's important to say it out loud even if no one else is willing to.

        Needless to say, the left went berserk.

        No country can survive being ruled by people who hate it. We deserve better. For all of our country’s flaws, this is still the best place in the world. Most immigrants know that and that is why they come here. It's also why we've always been glad to have them here.

        — Tucker Carlson

        Think about that for a minute. Our country rescued Ilhan Omar from the single poorest place on Earth. We didn't do it for the money, we did it because we are kind people. How did she respond to the remarkable gift we gave her?

        They hate it when you say true things. Ilhan Omar and her allies in Congress immediately demanded that this show be pulled off the air. They didn't rebut what we said, any of our points, or even acknowledge them. They just try to silence us.

        That is how they operate.

        Of course, they called us racist. On one level that is amusing given how absurd the charges. This show, more than any other show on television, has taken an aggressive position in favor of color-blind equality and against racism, particularly the casual racism of the modern left.

        We despise the current habit of judging people on the basis of their skin color. It's wrong. We see that virtually every night. Racist? Now, we are against racism adamantly. Omar consistently puts her own race at the center of the conversation, but to us, it's irrelevant.

        [​IMG]Video
        Ayaan Hirsi Ali would, by the standard of identity politics, seem to have everything in common with Ilhan Omar. She was born in Somalia, moved to Kenya and eventually came to this country. Unlike Omar, she loves and cares about the United States. She believes this country is superior to the country she came from.

        For saying that, the left despises her. Two Somali immigrants, one among the most impressive people in America. The other, among the least.

        ILHAN OMAR ADMITS SHE MAY HAVE FLUBBED FACTS IN DRAMATIC STORY SHE TOLD HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS

        It's not about race. But, of course, Omar and her friends already know that. Nothing they say on the subject of race is sincere. It's all the hustle designed to get them what they want. Omar has made a career of denouncing anyone and anything in her way as racist. That would include virtually all of her political and personal opponents. It includes even inanimate objects like the border wall, that's racist. So was the Congress, so is the entire state of North Dakota, she once tweeted.

        Omar may be from another country but she learned young that crying racism pays. The bigger question is, who taught her that? She didn't arrive from a Kenyan refugee camp announcing people as bigots for a political campaign. She wasn't always a professional victim. That is learned behavior.

        Importantly, she learned it here. In some ways, the real villain in the Ilhan Omar story isn't Omar, it is a group of our fellow Americans. Our cultural gatekeepers who stoke the resentment of new arrivals and turn them into grievance mongers like Ilhan Omar. The left did that to her, and to us.

        Blame them first.

          Mccain was born in Panama. Did that make him Panamian?

          You are who your loyalties are with. Two of these are loyal to Al Shabaab and Hamas.

          It is often not the first generation, the ones that fled a shythole, who love the US, bc they know hiw much better we are than the rest of the world.

          That second generation often gets radicalized in education and others trying to prove that they arent an Uncle Tom who is steppin and fetchin (/avatard).

                Three of the four Trump targeted are from the US - they were born and raised here. Only Omar was born in another country but is now a US citizen.



                So where are they supposed to “go back to” and fix? The US?

                Is Osasio-Cortez supposed to go back to Westchester County, where she was raised, and “fix” crime there?

                  Citizenship is ultimately a privilege, and privileges are not unconditional. People that hate this country have no business immigrating here, much less becoming citizens or holding elected office, and eventually people will realize that.

                    Targeting? Those tweets were a response. AOC is an actor hired by the Justice Democrats. Rashida Tlaib is a Hamas puppet. Omar is an immigrant that openly hates the country that gave her refuge. The Squad is doing everything in their power (which as a person in Congress is substantial) to change the culture in our country among other things by trying to force the opening of our borders to an unlimited supply of foreign nationals by leaning on public sentiment with their constant lies.

                      Tlaib literally draped herself in the Palestinian flag when she was elected.

                      Think about that - where do her priorities and loyalties lie?

                        Here's my take.

                        These "new" Dems (AOC) were infighting with the establishment Dems (Pelosi) with the tenacity of a starved cannibal. It revealed a rare instance when the Dems weren't in perfect goose-stepping form with the latest narrative.

                        Then, Trump hijacks the news cycle and ends all the limited amount of media about that with this latest tweet barrage. It's as if the narcissist is jealous of their media coverage.

                        I understand the point Trump was trying to make, and I agree with the fact that the targets of his latest antics have checkered pasts and motives.

                        Exhibit #42,000 of when Trump should have kept his twitter account silent.

                          Trump's ability to never apologize for even the most flagrant Kinsley-gaffe is what sets him apart from pikers like Biden.

                              Or just worded it little better to not come off as an idiot.

                              Personally I like when he forces the Democraps to say stupid ****. In this case it doesn’t need to be a give and take.

                              Not every 2nd gen hates America.

                              My guess? Your parents and then your decisions and then your religion.

                              The management works very hard to make sure the community is running the best software, best designs, and all the other bells and whistles. Care to buy us a non-alcoholic Zima? We'd really appreciate it! Just click the "Donate" tab at the top of the page.
