Well, it's been a couple weeks since the nasty Racist-in-Chief (sarcasm implied) sent the horrifically mean spirited tweet that just had to be targeting "The Squad." I mean, it was obviously about them, like, you know, like...
In the time since, I dissected the tweet. I read it backwards and forwards. I wrote it in the sand on a windy day. I even attempted to translate it into several languages to look for even subliminal racism.
But I remembered something today. When I engaged my friend and political nemesis Thom Hartmann in a debate last week, I made a point that, however muted by Thom's incessant yelling, made a lot of sense.
What if America was infiltrated with naturalized white Legislators who came from Nordic countries and wanted to institute socialist policies in America? Would a tweet from Trump, that stated some of the elements of the infamous "Squad" tweets like, '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....,' be seen as racist?
I believe Trump's tweet spoke directly to ideological differences and the incompatibility of the so-called "Squad" with the ways of our Constitutional Republic. It had nothing to do with skin color, religion or sex. In fact, as of March of this year, Trump had appointed more women as senior advisers than former presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush, and Bill Clinton did at the similar points in their presidencies.
Trump has also worked with the likes of Dr. Ben Carson, his choice for Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. Alex Acosta, who Trump appointed as Labor Secretary, is the son of Cuban immigrants. There has been Omarosa Manigault, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, Administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Seema Verma and one of my personal favorites Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai.
If it isn't really racist, then why did the Democrats lose their minds? Easy. They weren't up for the challenge posed in the Tweet. That's why I hereby propose "The Democrat Foreign Exchange Program."
Hate America? Hate Capitalism? Hate the 2nd Amendment? Hate the fact that taxes have been lowered across the board? Then you can leave.
Send Nancy Pelosi and her 29 million dollar net worth along with Bernie Sanders and his 2 million dollars to Denmark where the top tax rate is 50% higher than the US. Lets see how they like it when their new government seizes a sizable portion of their personal fortunes, just as it has seized most of the means of production.
Send Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar to one of the many Middle Eastern countries that violate the human rights of women on a daily basis. If their non stop bellyaching is any indicator, they seem primed to make a real difference for the truly disenfranchised. Lets see if they can even get a word in edgewise.
If a program like this was to ever be executed, it would put a spotlight on one of the truly beautiful things about America: Freedom of Speech.
Imagine a country so free that you are allowed to say the stupidest things you can think of. Don't have to imagine it, you're living here baby...
