    https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/18/opinion/trump-rally-send-her-back.html

    According to the demons who were assigned to write at the NYT editorial board, the “real meaning” of Trump’s presidency is captured in a quote they know he never made, reflecting his status as a “race warrior” who foments “racial hatred” for daring to send out tweets which PC doctrine demands that we all gasp at regardless of accuracy. You don’t need to read the article, because my summary of their summary should tell you about how many neurons were actually required to fire to get this piece written. One per letter, perhaps.

    I suppose the assumption is that since Trump told these four congresswomen to leave the US until they can make their ideas work in the failed socialist dictatorships from which they come, he’s in effect telling them to leave forever, because everyone knows that their ideas will never work as intended. I’m just kidding, of course. They don’t really think that. But they know *he* thinks that.

    No one can say that Trump’s tweets were necessarily motivated by racism. Given his style, by now well-established by many tweets of a similar nature, these tweets can only be rationally explained as an effort to be *rhetorically compelling*. It just so happens that he could use this particular rhetorical device against only these minority congresswomen. Of course, one could say that it was racially insensitive to send out tweets like those, but Trump’s smart enough to know that in these PC times pushing buttons is one of the only tools we have to fight back.

    The truth, of course, is that Trump’s tweets didn’t go nearly far enough, but we can’t say that’s his fault. As president of Communist USA, there are many truths that even he can’t speak. Let’s just say that if by some tragic miracle *I* were elected president, I don’t think I could stop myself from sending out tweets like these:

    “The fed up citizens in this country should grab their guns, show up on every college campus throughout this country, and begin firing in the direction of the professors of America until they’re waving their gay rainbow flags and consent to trade places with all the white South Africans whose plight they’ve been ignoring all this time. Then, once they’ve been shipped to their new homeland, they can begin demolishing all those costly and ineffective walls and learn to live in peace with the starving but smiling Africans. Or not. SAD!” 

    They wouldn’t really be able to accuse me of anything of which they haven’t already accused Trump. They would just get louder, crazier and more sweaty because they’d know I was being serious.

    If I'm not mistaken Donald Trump never actually said "send her back".  He's disavowed the chant, which was probably partially inspired by leftwing propaganda.

    It was merely hypothetical. No need to get pedantic about it.

    …The one Trump rally where he has to show some class.   I find his brand of demagoguery repulsive, not sure why people get so excited hearing a guy brag and rant about ugly politics for an hour.

    Trump classy? I have never heard of such thing.

    Me neither but almost half the country voted for him.

    Nothing says class like a solid gold toilet, and getting a beer thrown in your face shortly before getting a stunner from Stone Cold Steve Austin.

    As an abstract his style of campaigning is reminiscent of Hitler and I wouldn't be surprised if he's taken notes.  I'm cautious to point towards 1930's Germany since the bulwark of the traditional American establishment is still quite different, but the democratic party is dealing with a socialist infiltration right now which is paving an inroad to fascism in the future.  His ideology seems more so inline with someone who would have campaigned as a democrat in the 1980's up till this point.

    Socialism and Fascism are diametrically oposed. The indoctrinated American belief concerning Socialism is as close to socialism is a veganism is to carnivorism.
    Americans are afraid of freedom, they need to be told what to do and how to think and they have a great fascist leader now to do it.

    I think Americans associate populism with what you refer to as socialism.  Americans associate socialism with what you refer to as American indoctrination.

    I suppose, He did tweet that they should go back though, don’t think his comments were racist though

    The tweets are almost certainly aimed at picking a fight with convenient scape goats on the road to 2020.  Joe Biden may be a bit soft at this time (or maybe that is the impression Trump is striving for) on some of the older families with a connection to the "working class".  The politics could be multifaceted, and I'm still casually working out a brief analysis.  The idea behind what the honest folk without racial insecurities would be attempting to point out is called nativism.
