Most missed the awesome effect of Trump’s ‘racist’ Tweet

Why most are missing the real effect of Trumps racist Tweet

I’ve had the luxury of some unplanned downtime for the last couple of days, forcing me to read more than I can write. It’s prevented me from chiming in much about the “racist” Tweet the President posted yesterday in which he called on “The Squad” – Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib – to go back to their countries of origin and fix them, then report back on what worked.

Most conservative commentaries I’ve read on the subject have either been a defense of the President’s frustration, one shared by many, or a reminder that he ruined a wonderful moment for Republicans by diffusing the brewing Democratic civil war before it could really get started. One of our writers made that claim yesterday.

But here’s the real state of affairs. Unifying the Democrats is not a bad thing at this stage in the game. As we learned from an Axios poll, we don’t want less of “The Squad” attached to the Democratic Party. We want them to be the beloved representatives that Democrats turn to for guidance. Being the most radical progressives in a caucus that is lurching to the left right in front of our eyes makes them ideal as foils to proper conservatism.

In other words, we want Democrats unified because we want the entire party associated with AOC and her cronies.

For the record, I see Trump’s Tweet as not directly racist in its context. Rather, it’s something that a racist would say. Some might say there’s no difference, but blatant racism versus irresponsible use of language to voice frustrations are not the same thing. That’s not to defend the President; from a standpoint of representing America as strong, compassionate, and always holding the high ground, this Tweet does not behoove us to be on the President’s timeline. But from a political perspective, it was gold for the GOP even if most don’t even realize it.

The people who thought Trump was a racist before now have another reason to believe it. There may be a small number of people who didn’t think he was a racist before and now do, but most believe his sentient was simply a poorly worded expression of angst towards the anti-Americanism put on display regularly by these four Congresswomen.

I’m not defending the President, nor am I suggesting this was his goal all along. I’ve given up on determining whether the President is lucky or smart. It hasn’t really mattered so far. Whatever is driving his moments of unexpected political brilliance, such as refocusing the Democrats to unify against him, is less relevant than the fact that it keeps happening.

Trump has caused a distraction in the Democratic civil war, making it easier to tie Democrats as a whole to the radical ideologies espoused by “The Squad.” As long as AOC, Ilhan, Tlaib, and Pressley represent the Democrats, they all look ridiculous.

Update: A friend sent me a link noting I’m not the only one thinking this. Foolish of me to only check commentaries on conservative sites. Apparently, Jonathan Allen at NBC News saw what I saw.

How Trump flipped the script on Pelosi and The Squad

It doesn’t require anyone else to explain Trump’s thinking. He provided a road map after receiving a cascade of criticism from Democrats and independent commentators.

“So sad to see the Democrats sticking up for people who speak so badly of our Country and who, in addition, hate Israel with a true and unbridled passion. Whenever confronted, they call their adversaries, including Nancy Pelosi, ‘RACIST,'” Trump tweeted Sunday night.

Dianne Feinstein’s comment on Dayton shooter skipped one important point

Dianne Feinsteins comment on Dayton shooter skipped one important point

Gun control is the talk of the town as the week comes to a close. Well, that and Greenland. And Jeffrey Epstein. But the mass shootings two weeks ago has DC buzzing, media furiously reporting, and activists on both sides of the debate furiously Tweeting at each other. Senator Dianne Feinstein weighed in on the discussion by pointing out some important facts about the alleged Dayton shooter, Connor Betts.

Her facts are correct. Her analysis is off because it missed one important point. We’ll get to that in a minute, but let’s declare once and for all (though I’m sure I’ll have to repeat myself later) that the 2nd Amendment IS NOT ABOUT HUNTING OR HOME PROTECTION. Our right to keep and bear firearms was put into the Constitution by our founders because they recognized what could happen if the people had no recourse against an oppressive government. Just as Venezuelans didn’t realize they danger they were putting themselves into when they allowed their guns to be taken away, so too do many Americans put way too much trust in government.

The authoritarian left wants guns because they know they’ll never achieve their endgame as long as the people can defend themselves from tyranny.

Feinstein is correct that the Dayton shooter was able to cause an extreme amount of death and injury in a short period of time. Police were quick to respond, otherwise it could have been much worse. But as our EIC pointed out in a Tweet, Feinstein’s narrative is worthless when you look at it from the opposite perspective.

Gun control is not the solution to our mass shooting problem. If anything, gun control has enabled shooters to enact their crimes without fear of many “good guys with a gun” to stop them. We must never give up our 2nd Amendment rights.

President says AOC ‘fuming’ that Tlaib, Omar are becoming the faces of the party

President says AOC fuming that Tlaib Omar are becoming the faces of the party

President Trump took to Twitter to make fun of the opposition party as two of its most outspoken members, Representatives Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar, continue making headlines and stirring up controversy. He even threw in an accusation against Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for good measure.

There are no indications that this is accurate, but that’s not the point. This isn’t hard policy or thoughtful analysis. It’s a petty jab, and while many Americans, including some of his fans, are against him taking shots at the opposition in such a manner, this is the society we live in and it includes a President who takes jabs on Twitter. You can stress over it or sit back and enjoy it. I choose the latter.

For AOC’s part, she took the jab with a chuckle.

Beyond the diversion this offers ahead of a weekend, reality is probably more closely reflected by the President’s Tweet than Democrats are comfortable admitting, at least the part about them being the face of the party. “The Squad” makes more headlines among the four of them than the rest of the Democrats combined, and this includes the powerful heads of committees who are actively investigating President Trump ahead of a possible impeachment.

Both Democrats and Republicans have different degrees of infatuation with “The Squad.” Are they a real threat to our republic, as many on both sides claim, or are they merely a diversion from real decisions being made in DC?

Kirsten Gillibrand wants to confiscate guns

Kirsten Gillibrand wants to confiscate guns

Senator and failing Democratic candidate for president Kirsten Gillibrand wants to confiscate your guns. The former “conservative” when it was politically expedient to be one in upstate New York has now gone the way of most her new party. She’s a radical progressive who wants your guns.

For someone who used to have an “A” rating with the NRA, she’s come a long way to hit rock bottom by calling for “assault weapons” bans and mandatory buybacks, AKA confiscations. Oh, but she won’t actually SAY they’re mandatory buybacks. She danced around that question like a pop star.

Gun activist Colion Noir broke down a recent interview she did with CNN. It was clear, as Noir pointed out, that CNN has already weighed Gillibrand in the balance and found her wanting. They went after her to corner her on her old gun rights support and tried to get her to admit what she wants to do as president with gun confiscations.

It’s funny watching Democrats flail around trying to get attention for themselves. There are only a handful of candidates leaving a mark, and Kirsten Gillibrand isn’t one of them. But she’s still trying to do damage to the 2nd Amendment on her way out.
