On Monday, Rep. Nancy Pelosi said the House planned to vote on a resolution to condemn Pres. Trump’s tweets in which he told four progressive congresswomen to “go back” to other countries, as racist. Mind you, Pres. Trump was not calling out immigrants he was calling out four congresswomen specifically who just last week called the House Speaker a racist.
Tomorrow the House will take up my resolution condemning the president's racist remarks. It will ask all members to choose: do we embrace President Reagan's vision of an America made stronger by immigrants and refugees, or President Trump's message of fear? https://t.co/xvT3Vxhjpq

In your House Resolution for condemnation of the president’s tweets and remarks, please include my name, and each and every name of all my deplorable friends that echo his sentiments. It’s refreshing to read or hear a politician be truthful and call these squad members what they are: extreme, dishonest, disloyal, divisive, and more often than not outwardly un-American! Proud and admire the company I keep– America, love it or leave it!
There are consequences to being this anti-American and Pelosi is stupid to try and protect them. These congresswomen swore an oath to our constitution and have zero intention of keeping it. It is deplorable that they are in positions of power to undermine the very country that gave them such a tremendous opportunity.
One more thing Nancy, since AOC called you a racist in so many words, will you be condemning her comments as well or will the House condemn you for calling out AOC and the #RadicalFour?
A vote on the resolution, which is sponsored by freshman Rep. Tom Malinowski (D-N.J.), could come as soon as Tuesday but has not been officially scheduled yet.
The text of the resolution obtained by The Hill “strongly condemns President Donald Trump’s racist comments that have legitimized and increased fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color by saying that our fellow Americans who are immigrants, and those who may look to the President like immigrants, should ‘go back’ to other countries.”
The resolution also states that the House “believes that immigrants and their descendants have made America stronger, and that those who take the oath of citizenship are every bit as American as those whose families have lived in the United States for many generations” and “is committed to keeping America open to those lawfully seeking refuge and asylum from violence and oppression, and those who are willing to work hard to live the American Dream, no matter their race, ethnicity, faith, or country of origin.” [The Hill]
One can either fight back and not worry about what the other side says or they can just sit back and take it even when it isn’t deserved. Of course no matter what Trump says or does they will call him a racist. Well, fighting back doesn’t guarantee victory, but sitting back and doing nothing guarantees defeat. I would rather our President and the rest of us go down swinging than give up. We are at a point where it isn’t just policy disagreement anymore, its a group people out to destroy America, elected officials are sworn to uphold the constitution makes it even worse, and it cant be tolerated.
In a different era, I would probably be critical of Trump’s comment, but this is all-out war (figuratively at least for now) so anything goes IMO.
Our president is playing a master game of chess. Hey Dems, this is what your party has become. A bunch of mental dwarfs making up stuff and enjoying the spotlight for their huge narcissistic egos. Tell me one thing these four ladies have accomplished besides running their mouths and being so sanctimonious, phony and preachy? Addendum: The Democrats I listen to are not recognizing their party. Even Uncle Joe capitulated during that debate.
For the life of me, I can’t figure out why these elected officials hate America. I think what they hate is the system that denies the power. Power and money are what they are after – nothing else – nothing less. At best, they are guilty of breaking their oath of office and should be recalled, if not removed from office.
Let this be a lesson to everyone here. Don’t ever go out on a limb for or defend leftist thinking you will soften their heart. This is what they will do to show their gratitude.
