Who is Really Explicitly Demanding Deportations?
Now that the caravan has moved on perhaps we can profitably revisit the incident that appears to have kicked-off the new narrative that Donald Trump (and by association all 65 million of our fellow citizens who voted for him) is a “racist.” I’ve previously focused on how The Squad has turned the charge of racism back against their own party’s Speaker of the House. However, it is President Trump’s recent Tweet that initiated this particular conflagration. The key Tweet is again shown. Note that President Trump isn’t threatening to deport members of The Squad, but is rather suggesting that their lot has improved significantly through citizenship in the United States. Their suggested going back speaks to their free decision as opposed to a threat of government action. In my opinion this is a crude, callous and destructive way to criticize The Squad. It has pushed us a step further down the road to national perdition. But, it is only in a “thorough the looking glass” Progressive world that the President’s language can be found to be uniquely cruel, let alone racist.
As is so often the case, the Progressives are projecting their actual behavior onto their political opponent.
To become sickeningly specific, do you know dear reader that the Progressive Left has prior to the President’s Tweet explicitly proposed deportation for the President and people close to him? Are you surprised? Well, here’s the proof regarding President Trump (I apologize for the profanity, but you need to know what kind of people they actually are).
You may be thinking that Mr. Trump is fair game. However, the Progressive Left took steps to initiate deportation of a presidential advisor who also happened to be a naturalized citizen. None other than the Democratic Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee took practical, explicit actions to seek deportation of Sebastian Gorka.
Yet when Democrats spearheaded deportation efforts against former Trump adviser Sebastian Gorka, the media was silent. In 2017, Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) asked the White House to hand over Gorka’s immigration paperwork to the House Judiciary Committee. Gorka is a British-born Hungarian-American who was naturalized in 2012, five years before Nadler attempted to use state power to intimidate him.
Even the First Lady is included in the Progressive deportation mania.
Apparently, no one thought #DeportMelania was racist or deplorable when it was being used by verified Democrats and journalists (is there a difference?) on Twitter just a short time ago.
Apparently it’s racist to suggest that people critical of the United States choose to go back to their countries of origin to fix terrible problems but it’s just peachy-keen to explicitly demand deportation of the President, his wife and an advisor. In a sane world these powerful Progressives would be pilloried for their appalling hypocrisy.
But the most recent peak in Progressive hypocrisy was reached by Cory Booker in a statement contemplating physical violence against President Trump.
“Donald Trump is a guy who you understand- he hurts you and my testosterone sometimes makes me want to fee like punching him, which would be bad for this elderly, out-of-shape man that he is if I did that,” Booker laughed. “Physically weak specimen, but do you see what I’m talking about here? That’s his tactics and you don’t beat a bully like him, fighting him on his tactics, on his terms, using his turf. He’s the body shamer, he’s the guy that tries to drag people in the gutter.”
Just to be clear, Senator Booker due to his life-long experience of unaccountability accused President Trump of “body shaming” while he engaged in “body shaming.” This level of pathetic hypocrisy is the catastrophic consequence of decades-long Progressive immunity from accountability.
It will likely get worse than this as we experience the 2020 election season.
