Go Back To Africa!! – Trump’s Racist Remarks At 4 Congresswomen Set Tongues Wagging

For over 60 years, a country called Malaysia was divided along racial lines between ethnic Malays and non-Malays. And for as long as one could remember, the Malays from UMNO, the political party that dominated the previous government before they were defeated in the last May general election, have been treating the ethic Chinese and Indian as punching bags.

 

Whenever the UMNO-Malay likes, they would tell the Chinese to go back to China and the Indians to go back to India – despite them being born as third generations, or even earlier, in the country they called their motherland. However, when the UMNO-Malay was told to go back to Indonesia, the non-Malay would be charged for seditious and thrown into prison.

 

People thought perhaps such deplorable racism only existed in Malaysia. But over the weekend, President Donald Trump, the most powerful man on planet Earth, has taken the United States to a new level when the world leader performed exactly the same stunt as UMNO-Malay – telling four non-white congresswomen leave the U.S. and “go back to Africa!!”

Donald Trump Bragging Face

Trump tweeted – “So interesting to see ‘Progressive’ Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run.”

 

“Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!” – Trump happily unleashed his attacks against the women.

 

Calling them “the squad”, the four Democratic congresswomen targeted are Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan. Ocasio-Cortez, who is of Puerto Rican descent, was born in the Bronx, New York, and raised in suburban Westchester County.

Pressley, the first African American woman elected to the House from Massachusetts, on the other hand, was born in Cincinnati. Born to Palestinian immigrants, Rashida Tlaib was previously slammed by Trump and Republicans for twisting facts and being anti-Semitic – boasting that she was humbled by her ancestors for providing safe haven for Jews after the Holocaust.

 

Only Omar, who is from Somalia, was not born in America. A Muslim, she was born in Mogadishu, Somalia on October 4, 1982 and came to the US at the age of 12 after a spell in a refugee camp. Senator Elizabeth Warren, a Democratic presidential candidate, said – “Let’s be clear about what this vile comment is: A racist and xenophobic attack on Democratic congresswomen.”

 

Shortly after the tweets, Trump left the White House to go golfing at his Virginia club. However, this is not the first time that he has been accused of holding racist views. In his campaign kickoff in June 2015, Trump regarded many Mexican immigrants “rapists.” Last year, Trump wondered why the U.S. was admitting so many immigrants from “shithole countries” like African nations.

While most of the Republicans have chosen to hold their tongues over Trump’s repetitive mocking of arriving immigrants as an “infestation”, his racist remarks have set tongues wagging among the Democrats. Trump’s latest nuclear attack appeared to be defending rival Democratic Speaker Pelosi, who has been seeking to minimize Ocasio-Cortez’s influence.

 

Ocasio-Cortez has accused Pelosi of trying to marginalize women of color. Apparently, the old guard Pelosi could not see eye to eye with the 29-year-old Ocasio-Cortez, who together with Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley and Ilhan Omar formed a squad so daring they refused to give face to veterans like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

 

The so-called four women-immigrants, as Trump would like to call them, labelled Pelosi a racist when the Speaker criticised them for opposing a border spending bill they said failed to protect migrant children from President Donald Trump’s policies. As proof that Pelosi was not a racist, she came to the defence of the four women in the wake of Trump’s latest attack.

Donald Trump - Point Finger - Go Back To Africa

On Friday, Trump told reporters that the four women had been “very disrespectful” to Pelosi, saying – “I don’t think that Nancy can let that go on” – suggesting that that four congresswomen have gone too far left. According to Sophia A. Nelson, an MSNBC commentator, Black women are deemed “angry”; while Latina women are deemed “fiery” and Muslim women are “radical.”

 

However, it’s also true that Trump’s latest racist remarks could be a strategic move to further divides the Democrat caucus, already strained over internal debates on liberal policies and on whether to proceed with impeachment proceedings against Trump. Perhaps it’s true when Nancy Pelosi said – “Trump wants to make America white again”. For that, perhaps Trump will win the 2020 Presidential Election again.

He is a Picasso of pettiness; a Shakespeare of shit.

Ha Ha Ha…read more what one Brit guy wrote so eloquently here about the Donald tRump :

Quote:
“A few things spring to mind…

Trump lacks certain qualities which the British traditionally esteem.

For instance, he has no class, no charm, no coolness, no credibility, no compassion, no wit, no warmth, no wisdom, no subtlety, no sensitivity, no self-awareness, no humility, no honour and no grace – all qualities, funnily enough, with which his predecessor Mr. Obama was generously blessed.

So for us, the stark contrast does rather throw Trump’s limitations into embarrassingly sharp relief.

Plus, we like a laugh. And while Trump may be laughable, he has never once said anything wry, witty or even faintly amusing – not once, ever.

I don’t say that rhetorically, I mean it quite literally: not once, not ever. And that fact is particularly disturbing to the British sensibility – for us, to lack humour is almost inhuman.

But with Trump, it’s a fact. He doesn’t even seem to understand what a joke is – his idea of a joke is a crass comment, an illiterate insult, a casual act of cruelty.

Trump is a troll.

And like all trolls, he is never funny and he never laughs; he only crows or jeers.

And scarily, he doesn’t just talk in crude, witless insults – he actually thinks in them. His mind is a simple bot-like algorithm of petty prejudices and knee-jerk nastiness.

There is never any under-layer of irony, complexity, nuance or depth. It’s all surface.

Some Americans might see this as refreshingly upfront.

Well, we don’t. We see it as having no inner world, no soul.

And in Britain we traditionally side with David, not Goliath. All our heroes are plucky underdogs: Robin Hood, Dick Whittington, Oliver Twist.

rump is neither plucky, nor an underdog. He is the exact opposite of that.

He’s not even a spoiled rich-boy, or a greedy fat-cat.
He’s more a fat white slug. A Jabba the Hutt of privilege.

And worse, he is that most unforgivable of all things to the British: a bully.

That is, except when he is among bullies; then he suddenly transforms into a snivelling sidekick instead.

There are unspoken rules to this stuff – the Queensberry rules of basic decency – and he breaks them all. He punches downwards – which a gentleman should, would, could never do – and every blow he aims is below the belt. He particularly likes to kick the vulnerable or voiceless – and he kicks them when they are down.

So the fact that a significant minority – perhaps a third – of Americans look at what he does, listen to what he says, and then think

‘Yeah, he seems like my kind of guy’

is a matter of some confusion and no little distress to British people, given that:

Americans are supposed to be nicer than us, and mostly are.

You don’t need a particularly keen eye for detail to spot a few flaws in the man.

This last point is what especially confuses and dismays British people, and many other people too; his faults seem pretty bloody hard to miss.

After all, it’s impossible to read a single tweet, or hear him speak a sentence or two, without staring deep into the abyss. He turns being artless into an art form; He is a Picasso of pettiness; a Shakespeare of shit.

His faults are fractal: even his flaws have flaws, and so on ad infinitum.

God knows there have always been stupid people in the world, and plenty of nasty people too. But rarely has stupidity been so nasty, or nastiness so stupid.
He makes Nixon look trustworthy and George W look smart.

In fact, if Frankenstein decided to make a monster assembled entirely from human flaws – he would make a Trump.

And a remorseful Doctor Frankenstein would clutch out big clumpfuls of hair and scream in anguish:
‘My God… what… have… I… created?

If being a twat was a TV show, Trump would be the boxed set.”

Twisted story. He did not say go back to Africa. He said go back to your own country.
Well, he may be right, he may be wrong but we know one thing for sure, not all immigrants respect or appreciate US culture and not all have adopted US as their country so there are racist and anti-US elements in immigrants as well.
Hope that all those representing the immigrants can admit this.

twisted? CNN, Times, ABC, USAToday, etc reported Trump said so …
