Trump is right – they can (should?) leave

(Thursday blog)

Conservative cat amongst progressive pigeons

Oh dear, President Trump has really put the conservative cat amongst the progressive pigeons. And there has been a great deal of flapping, squawking and flying feathers from the progressive pigeons.

Trump, like many Americans, is fed up of people from foreign backgrounds constantly pissing on America and American values. And now he has singled out the ‘Squad’ – new congresswomen Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib.

Here’s what Trump said: 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.

There isn’t room here to list the invective and bile these four ladies have directed at America since their recent election in 2018.

Rashida Tlaib, for example, in one of her first speeches screamed “We’re going to impeach the motherfucker!” While Trump has been accused of lowering the tone of political discourse, he’s never fallen quite as low as the delightful Rashida Tlaib calling her own president amotherfucker’. But, of course nobody in the mainstream media criticised her as she’s a progressive lefty and the mainstream media hates Trump.

Then there’s the wonderful Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez (AOC). Her recent gem was to accuse the US immigration authorities of running “concentration camps” for illegal immigrants. That’s slightly offensive to the six million plus Germans, Gypsies, Russian POWs and Jews who were slaughtered in Hitler’s concentration camps. As far as I know, nobody has been slaughtered in America’s camps. Moreover, I believe the inmates are free to go back to their own countries whenever they want. That wasn’t an option offered to Hitler’s victims.

Moreover, a few days ago AOC called Nancy Pelosi (head of the Democrats) a “racist”. In fact, it seems that anyone who disagrees with AOC on anything is automatically a ‘racist’. AOC is also famous for destroying Amazon’s plans to build a new HQ in her New York district that would have created about 25,000 new jobs. The HQ will now be built somewhere else. But, of course nobody in the mainstream media criticised her as she’s a progressive lefty and the mainstream media hates Trump.

And now the progressive pigeons are flapping and squawking even more as Trump has doubled down on his comments about the Squad: “I’m appalled that so many of our Presidential candidates are falling all over themselves to try to agree with the four horsewomen of the apocalypse. I’m entitled to say that they’re Wack Jobs”.

I love it – “four horsewomen of the apocalypse” – what a brilliant insult, what a brilliant put-down.

Trump’s strategy

The mainstream media are using Trump’s latest outburst to claim he’s unhinged and a racist. But there is an alternative explanation. Trump intends fighting the 2020 presidential elections with two simple messages:

  1. Keep America Great: don’t let the Democrats destroy America’s economic resurgence with record levels of employment among all communities
  2. Democrats are America-hating socialists: by baiting the mouth-frothing Squad, Trump will either split the Democrats into moderates and swivel-eyed lunatics or else will push the Democrats further to the Left by making them circle the wagons around the (IMHO) demonically-insane four ladies of the Squad.

The next year looks like being a lot of fun.

Here’s Trump lambasting the (IMHO) America-loathing  four horsewomen of the apocalypse:

5 comments to Trump is right – they can (should?) leave

  • Julia Green

    Can’t wait to see Islamic groups in the US set up their own parties and walk away from the Democrats, which they will do when they have sufficient numbers. This is happened now in Europe, in Belgium the Lefties look a bit po-faced seeing votes they thought they had bought for life, evaporating. Labour and LibDems have been grovelling for/buying the Muslim vote for years in Britain, wait until that also changes.

  • loppoman

    I sincerely hope he gets in again, unfortunately it can only be one more time.
    The Republicans need to seriously look now for another “Trump” to take charge thereafter and keep the lunatics out.
    Otherwise, I fear conflict.

    I think it is a pity that this has become a racist issue rather than a political issue. It is the same here, everything is made to be about racism, inequality, sexist etc. Free speech has gone along with rational debates. Here we have the ridiculous teenager, Greta Thunburg, lecturing us again. Trump has certainly created jobs but it is at the cost of massive debt. State subsidies are not the way to go and they are effectively socialist policies. They are making the USA uncompetitive and increasing costs for businesses and the public. There is still concern about austerity here. We don’t have austerity, we have people who expect to have more than they can earn and they expect others to provide what they cannot. My theory is that democracy leads to socialism. It gives the voters the keys to the treasury and so every party has to hand out more benefits to get into power. The slow progress to socialism cannot be stopped. Thatcher made little progress. The only way to stop it is to cut down the size of the state and get rid of political parties. We must take responsibility for ourselves if we are to have a better future and we have to accept that we live in a global economy so we have to be competitive which means we will have to accept declines in our incomes at times to regain competitiveness. The idea that we have continually increasing standards of living is a recent concept and it cannot continue.

    ‘As far as I know, nobody has been slaughtered in America’s camps. Moreover.’ Actually, over a million German PoW’s  died in Eisenhower’s death camps due to deliberate starvation and neglect after the end of WW2 in Europe. Designating them Disarmed Enemy Forces, he effectively denied access to these camps by the Red Cross, the very rights enjoyed by prisoners in all the Nazi camps during the War. The victors write the histories and the one survey of conditions in Hitler’s camps which is almost unique in its honesty and objectivity can be found in the three volume Report of the International Committee of the Red Cross on its Activities during the Second World War, Geneva 1948.
    As for Trump, ’It’s the economy stupid.’ All rests on him getting re-elected before the inevitable collapse of the stock market boom and a worse recession than that of 2007, that’s why he keeps such a beady eye on he activities of the Fed. With over a year to go, it’s touch and go.

    I have heard it said that Trump is using the trade wars with China to force the fed to cut rates. It seems to be about to work with 50 bps baked in now. Maybe followed shortly afterwards with a couple of others.

    He will then early next year agree trade terms with China and sit back whilst the kettle boils and the stock market goes vertical.
