FoxNews.com reports that
Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar alleged Thursday that President Trump is steering the country toward fascism, as they ramped up their criticism of the president in the wake of a fiery rally where he repeatedly blasted the freshman lawmakers.
Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., speaking to reporters on Capitol Hill, reacted to the president’s recent comments — as well as the rally crowd’s reaction — by saying it shows they’re “not in politics anymore.”
“We are not in politics anymore. We are in racism… we are in a fascistic government,” she said.
Trump, however, sought Thursday to distance himself from the rally audience’s chant of “send her back,” which had been directed at Omar.
Ocasio-Cortez also said the rhetoric used in recent days could pose “personal security issues,” not just for lawmakers like herself, but other persons of color. The New Yorker added she trusts Capitol security officials will take care of security but is fearful more for immigrant communities and other persons of color.
“People who are going to be targeted because of this rhetoric… that is our main concern,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
Moments later, Omar also weighed in on Capitol Hill, saying: “I want to make sure that every single person who is in this country, who is aspiring to become part of the American fabric, understands nothing this president says should be taken to heart.
“We are Americans as much as anyone else, this is our country, and we are where we belong. I told people on my election night in the great state of Minnesota, we don’t just welcome refugees, we send them to represent us.
“And as much as he is spewing his fascist ideology on stage, telling U.S. citizens to go back because they do not agree with his detrimental policies for our country, we tell people that here in the United States, dissent is patriotic. Here in the United States, disagreement is welcomed, debate is welcomed – especially in the people’s House.”
Omar then referenced a group of women she was with, including one who she said recently became a citizen, saying: “This president does not speak for them, and we are going to make sure we get a president they can be proud of.”
During the “Make America Great Again” rally in North Carolina, the crowd broke out in a striking chant of “send her back” while the president criticized Omar and other members of the so-called progressive Democrat “squad.”
The three-word chant, which Trump did not respond to, referred to the president’s tweet on Sunday in which he asked why unnamed “Democrat Congresswomen” don’t “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.”
The president later affirmed he was referring to Omar, as well as Reps. Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley — all of whom, except Omar, were born in the United States. After a historic and bizarre floor fight, the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives formally condemned Trump’s comments as “racist” on Tuesday.
As the president criticized Omar, shouts of “traitor” could then be heard in the crowd.
“And at a press conference just this week, when asked whether she supported Al Qaeda — that’s our enemy, they are a very serious problem, that we take care of, but they always seem to come along somewhere — she refused to answer,” Trump then said.
“Omar blamed the United States for the crisis in Venezuela. I mean, think of that one. And she looks down with contempt on the hardworking Americans, saying that ignorance is pervasive in many parts of this country.”
As a handful of people began yelling, “Send her back,” Trump added: “And obviously and importantly, Omar has a history of launching vicious anti-Semitic screeds.”
The “send her back” chant escalated as Trump stepped away briefly from the podium.
The president did not acknowledge the crowd’s chant, and returned after a pause to continue on with his remarks.
On Thursday, however, Trump condemned the chant.
“I was not happy when I heard that chant,” he told reporters, saying he disagrees with it and noting he did not say it.
Prior to the rally, Fox News exclusively reported House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie G. Thompson, D-Miss., was seeking extra protection for members of Congress on Monday after Trump’s tweets and remarks about the progressive “squad.”
In the letter for House Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving and Senate Sergeant at Arms Michael Stenger, Thompson argued that the Capitol Police Board should meet to “analyze the current threat environment and set thresholds for enhanced safety of Members.”
Thompson said security officials should set “thresholds for enhanced security for certain targeted Members, and evaluate threat streams with law enforcement partners in Member districts. Being proactive in this instance is vital to the safety of not only these targeted Members, but all Members of Congress.”
Fox News has been told that despite Thompson’s pleas, other lawmakers have faced more serious threats than members of the squad ahead of Trump’s tweets.
“A fascistic government”? Are you kidding me?
Look in the mirror, genius.
For years now, I have referred to the intolerant political ideology of Modern American Liberals as “The New Fascism” because of their intolerance toward traditional Americans Faith and Values, including our relationship with our closest ally, since their birth as a country in 1948.
What we are seeing now, as regards the “Four Horsewomen of the Apocalypse” and the growing radical movement to the Left of the Political Spectrum, which includes anti-Semitism, of the Democratic Party, which began under Former President Barack Hussein Obama, is a result of an amalgamation of the political philosophies of the special interest groups who have replaced average Americans as the Democrats’ Voting Base.
Anti-Semitism is the norm in Marxism in all of its forms, fascism, and, of course, Islam.
All of these political philosophies are the anti-thesis of who the Far Left Democrats claim to be.
Ladies and gentlemen, I firmly believe that America is in the middle of fighting a new war against fascism.
It’s not a war that is being fought with guns and bullets, But instead, it is being fought with superfluous Congressional Hearings attacking President Trump, anonymous sources, unproven baseless accusations, and the Vanguard of the Modern Democratic Party, the Main Stream Media.
It’s not our Brightest and Best who are dying on this field of battle, but rather, it is our Constitutional Freedoms and our form of government, including our System of Checks and Balances, which are dying an ignoble death, pierced by the arrows of socialism and political correctness.
A form of government unique to America, a Constitutional Republic, which the clueless Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, in a deflective move, identified as “fascistic”.
By now, there’s some out there in the audience saying, “Oh Lord, the crazy old cracker’s overreacting again.”
No, Skippy, I’m not.
If you try to talk to a Liberal about this New Fascism, they will deny that there is any fascism going on at all. In fact, they will tell you that their radicalism “the will of the people” and they will site Democratically stacked push polls in order to back their opinion up.
Liberals can not legitimately defend their positions, such as the suppression of the Second Amendment Rights of average Americans, the Silent Coup began by those members of the DOJ and FBI during the Obama Administration against now-President Trump, the “Caining” of Judge Kavanaugh, and now, the taking over of the Democratic Party by a bunch of wild-eyed anti-American radicals.
Fascism, in any form, remains indefensible.
All of this political unethical behavior by the Far Left Democrats is reminiscent of both the Russian Revolution and Hitler and his Brown Shirts’ “Beer Hall Putsch” which probably should have been expected, given the “New Bolsheviks” track record of Liberal Intolerance and aversion to opposing viewpoints.
Ronald Reagan, during an interview with Mike Wallace on 12/14/75, quipped…
“You know, someone very profoundly once said many years ago that if fascism ever comes to America, it will come in the name of liberalism.”
The man was a prophet.
Until He Comes,
