Graham Unleashed: AOC and Her Friends are Anti-America Commies

Katie Pavlich, July 18, 2019

The feud between President Trump and the most radical members of the Democrat freshman class continues to rage and Senator Lindsey Graham has a few things to say about the situation.

"We all know that AOC and this crowd are a bunch of communists. They hate Israel. They hate our own country. They're calling the guards along our border, the Border Patrol agents, concentration camp guards. They accuse people who support Israel of doing it 'for the Benjamins.' They're anti-Semitic. They're anti-America," Graham said. 

He then went on to urge President Trump not to get in the dirt with them. 

"Don't get down...aim higher, we don't need to know anything about them personally," Graham said. "Talk about their policies. I think they are American citizens who are duly elected that are running on an agenda that is disgusting that the American people will reject. Talk about what it means for America to have free healthcare for illegal immigrants and no criminalization of coming into the country. See how that works for controlling immigration." 

"Make them face of the future of the Democrat Party. They will destroy the Democrat Party," he continued.

During an event at the White House earlier today, President Trump tripled down on comments made through Twitter over the weekend and told those who hate America they are free to leave.

If you’re not happy here, then you can leave.  As far as I’m concerned, if you hate our country, if you’re not happy here you can leave. That’s what I say all the time. That’s what I said in a tweet that I guess some people think is controversial. A lot of people love it, by the way. A lot of people love it. But if you’re not happy in the U.S., if you’re complaining all the time, very simply you can leave. You can leave right now. You can come back if you want, don’t come back, that’s okay too,” Trump said.

Democrats Are Eating Their Own: Let Them Feast Undistracted, Mr. President, and 2020 Is in the Bag

Michele Blood, July 18,2019

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) suggested the president “knock it down a notch” and “aim higher” with his comments on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and other progressive members of her squad in a Monday morning interview on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends.”

Aim higher. We don’t need to know anything about them personally. Talk about their policies,” Graham implored.

Graham’s right, and the president would be well-advised to heed his counsel.

Democrats have begun eating their own. Allow them to feast undistracted, and a 2020 win is in the bag for the Republican Party. Democrats’ natural, politically cannibalistic impulses will be their undoing, but only if they’re permitted to maintain focus on wresting power from their party comrades rather than their ideological foes.

We all know that AOC and this crowd are a bunch of communists. They hate Israel. They hate our own country. They’re calling the guards along our border, the border patrol agents, concentration camp guards. They accuse people of who support Israel of doing it ‘for the benjamins.’ They’re anti-Semitic. They’re anti-America,” Graham acknowledged.

Asked if he thought the president went too far with his recent tweets admonishing the “squad,” Graham said, “They are American citizens. They won an election. Take on their policies."

If President Trump tempers his tweets and embraces the sentiments expressed by Sen. Graham this morning, he will enjoy an additional term in office. If he does not, his re-election chances may dim significantly, and along with it, our chance to repair the damage done by Democrat-initiated policies and our chances to reclaim our Constitutionally-defined roots.

Over the weekend, the president tweeted a series of attacks on the “The Squad.” “The Squad” is a quartet of House freshman, all of whom are young women of color. They include Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.), and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.).

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 and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run.

"These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!” Trump tweeted on Sunday, emphasis added.

The predictable firestorm that followed re-focused the whole of the Democratic Party on lobbing accusations of racism at the president, rather than at one another. And they were doing a pretty good job of tearing each other apart on this very issue prior to the president weighing in.

Nancy Pelosi is now reportedly planning to introduce a resolution condemning President Trump’s remarks. That will likely command an entire news cycle, at least on legacy media.

How could they not? Though he likely did not mean it as it sounded, the president served that opportunity up to them on a silver platter. “Go back to where you came from” is an undeniably racist trope, and Trump’s use of it—even if wielded without racist intent—puts him in a position of having to defend himself for using it.

Only one of the four members of The Squad was born in a foreign country, and all are American citizens who were duly elected to Congress.

As loathsome as their policies, words, and actions may be—and some are utterly heinous—these Congresswomen arrived at their current positions of political power in the same way the president did—by a vote of the people.

Later on Sunday, to his credit, President Trump ratcheted down the rhetoric somewhat.

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.’

"Their disgusting language and the many terrible things they say about the United States must not be allowed to go unchallenged. If the Democrat Party wants to continue to condone such disgraceful behavior, then we look even more forward to seeing you at the ballot box in 2020!” he said in a two-part tweet.

Monday morning, the president again tweeted a series of remarks about the Democrats in general and the Squad in particular. He called out the party for “unit[ing] around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen.”

In addition, he asked when an apology to the country, to the people of Israel, and to his office might be forthcoming from the Squad for the “foul language” and “terrible things they have said.”

The chances of that are about equal to a snowball’s chance in Hades.

Interestingly, the president also indicated in the tweet that comments from the anti-Semitic “Radical Left Congresswomen” had “made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.”

A bit later Monday morning, the president quoted Graham in his appearance on Fox & Friends in a trio of tweets.

With 2020 election campaigning in full swing, the president would do himself, the Party, and the country a great service by embracing Graham’s advice.

Make [The Squad] the face of the future of the Democratic Party—you’ll destroy the Democratic Party,” said Graham, but with the following caveat. “Make it about their policy, not about them.”

Look for bulldozers to ascend on the corner of South Central Avenue and Elm Street in coming weeks as they raze the old row of yellow buildings across from West Fire Department preparing the way for another restaurant in Locust. There are other things in the pipe line coming to Locust as our population continues grow. I've been told that there is a waiting list of new home owners awaiting a new phase of new homes in the Locust Town Center. The city is actively looking for funds for a new road between the LTC and the Food Lion shopping center.
