The Squad.......

Lucille(9a)

President Trump has apparently chosen four fairly new Democrats to be the face of the Democratic Party, and is characterizing them and the party itself as anti American. This is certainly a clever tactic, as it avoids factual info, not his strong suit, and plays on emotion.

The democats have chosen these four to be the face of the party.

They are intimidated by them and controlled by them.

Pelosi is a cornered rat and acts like it.

What a horrible way to end her career, controlled, intimidated and going along with these apparent narciccistic anarchists that do nothing but insult and tear down our country.

projecting heavily again, are we?


plus, throwing in some de-humanizing, calling Ms Pelosi nonchalantly "rat"


---


last time I looked, tRUMP and his dysfunctional attempt at government was doing the tearing down: laws protecting clean air, water ..., human rights, freedom of the press...


should I go on?

So true. This is his re-election strategy. Paint this group as the face of the Democratic Party, label us all as communists, and distract from the fact that he has done nothing positive for our country.

At least the Dems have independent thinkers with the guts to speak truth to power. The Pubs are all Trump Zombies.

Republicans continuously embarrass themselves.

Underestimating Pelosi and believing that the trump is able to determine the face of the Democrat Party. What a hoot!

This is shaping up to be a very entertaining day.

We are all "the squad"

Well, not Trump's racist supporters, but decent Americans ...............

President Trump has forced us all to take a position on what kind of America this is going to be — in essence, to define again what American “nationalism” means. Is it a white Christian nationalism (or if you’re Jewish and think you can wriggle yourself inside the Trumpian nationalist tent, you can call it Judeo-Christian), in which immigrants of color or other religions are not really Americans and can be told by the president to “go back” to their ancestral lands? Or is it the universalist nationalism of the Declaration of Independence, based on the liberal Enlightenment principles of equality before the law, the inviolable rights of the individual against the state and the conviction that all citizens — regardless of religion, ethnicity or ancestral roots and the timing of their arrival — are equally American?

"The democats have chosen these four to be the face of the party."

Yes! Although we must admit the MSM loves them too, so maybe generous TV coverage is helping to raise their profiles.

In any event, they've announced the tolerance and inclusion they demand of Americans who object to mass illegal immigration and fake asylees, is not something they're interested in practicing themselves.

Instead, they've decreed there's no room in the Party for certain "kinds" of people. People who might like to think for themselves, or are open to ideas outside what they're "supposed" to think. Thus, this warning:

"We don’t need any more brown faces that
don’t want to be a brown voice.“

"We don’t need
black faces that don’t want to be a black voice."

"We don’t need Muslims
that don’t want to be a Muslim voice."

"We don’t need queers that don’t
want to be a queer voice.”

I am pretty left leaning, and yet I find the tone of some of those Dems in that so-called squad distasteful. The language and vitriol is ugly. Trump has set such an ugly tone for the country. He is vulgar and people react to him with vulgarity. I hope his latest gambit fails, but I think it's probably a winner. To think we have Archie Bunker's favorite retort to Meathead coming straight out of the White House. How far we have fallen.

The "squad" is NOT the face of the Democratic Party. Not at all, that is totally fabricated . Almost all of the new Congress critters elected in the 2018 dump of Trump Republicans are moderates.

These four have very far left positions but that is no different than the Tea Party or Freedom Caucus who are very far right. Difference is these four have no significant influence, they don't carry enough weight to derail Pelosi's moderate left to light progressive leaning agenda. most Democrats think these four are "out there" with many of their comments.

Trump and the Trumpettes are going to try and paint the entire party using these four but it is only going to work for the base who are already there.....it won't convert anyone over to Trump which is what he needs. Solidifying the base and growing the base are two different things.

Re Naafta, the new Naafta, referred to as Naafta Light has not changed much from a Canadian perspective. Many of the new elements in the USMCA draw heavily on the Comprehensive and Progressive Trans-Pacific Partnership, the 11-country Asia-Pacific free trade deal abandoned by the Trump administration in 2016.

Trump wanted Canada to do away with Dairy Supply Management. This did not happen. Another goal was to ensure USA dairy farmers enter the Canadian dairy market. USA farmers were given the same deal as the Asia Pacific deal.

I highly doubt Jefferson had theology in mind when he wrote the DoI.

Only WaPOS could totally subvert the intention of the DoI. What an absolute rag.

"He [Trump] knows that a great number of Americans in both parties have little sympathy for the Squad, and for all kinds of reasons, ranging from simple racism, Islamophobia and misogyny, to genuine policy disagreements, to unhappiness with the bigotry and insensitivity that members of the Squad have themselves sometimes displayed."

PS: of course Kagan is thinking about those who identify as Pub or Dem. There are a lot of potential voters who don't.

There's no drama and accusations from the press for the wolfpacks words, they support them and demonize Trump when he responds. This is everyday occurance, the constant undermining of Trump, hoping to either impeach or gain power in 2020. This is how the left is transparent.

The four horsewomen of the Apocalypse love the limelight. They would trip Adam Schiff to get in front of a camera. And no one should try to stop them. The republicans won't even have to pay for ads, just air clips. The anti-Semitic tropes, the concentration camps, the Nazi border patrol agents, abolish ICE, the green new deal, the free everything,the racist rants. Pushing the 2020 candidates off a left cliff. Even moderate democrats cringe when they speak. We will certainly do our part to keep them front and center.

The only people those four have any power over is Trump and his supporters......they represent 4 districts...woopie ! If I was Trump I would concentrate on policy and the those running against him, that's where his vulnerability lies.

These four mean nothing....but they are easy targets who stir up the hatred in the base...but that's where it ends.

I noticed the new You Gov polls place healthcare at the top of the list of issues important to voters. Maybe Trump should talk up his healthcare policy........oh right, he hasn't got one to talk about.

The number one issue for 2020 and he has NO policy, NO answer ! Which is why he has to deflect to red meat. Just watch how hateful he will be tonight and watch the cheering crowd!
