President Donald Trump and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) took Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) to the woodshed over their perceived (though probable) anti-Americanism and their left-wing agenda, the latter of which veers into extremism. Omar refuses to condemn terrorists, Tlaib wrote a post for Nation of Islam leader and rabid anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan’s blog, Pressley said those black and Hispanic lawmakers of color who side with House Speaker Pelosi are pretty much race traitors, and AOC has a green new deal that will all but wreck the economy. And we haven’t even discussed Omar’s anti-Semitic antics.
“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 as doing it for the Benjamin’s,....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 15, 2019
....they are Anti-Semitic, they are Anti-America, we don’t need to know anything about them personally, 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......— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 15, 2019
....What does it mean for America to have free Healthcare for Illegal Immigrants, no criminalization of coming into our Country - See how that works for controlling Immigration! They talk about Israel like they’re a bunch of thugs, not victims of the entire region. They wanted...— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 15, 2019
.....to impeach President Trump on DAY ONE. Make them the face of the future of the Democrat Party, you will destroy the Democrat Party. Their policies will destroy our Country!” @LindseyGrahamSC Need I say more?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 15, 2019
Well, apparently, calling this crew a bunch of communists is a huge dog whistle. Enter activist Bree Newsome Bass, who detailed the new rules here. It seems this has been code for the n-word since the 1950s or something. Bass gained national attention when she scaled the flagpole at the South Carolina Capitol building to take down the Confederate flag in 2015 [Note: the tweets have been edited]:
Since at least the 1950s, "communist" has become a popular coded word for n**ger. Let's be real.— Bree Newsome Bass (@BreeNewsome) July 15, 2019
Anybody Black advocating equal rights is a "communist" [read: no good n**ger] who is a threat to the American way of life [read: white man's country]. They called MLK communist when they weren't calling him Martin Luther Coon.— Bree Newsome Bass (@BreeNewsome) July 15, 2019
Do people flipping out about this tweet have any awareness of the long history of white racists using the terms "communist" & "socialist" to refer to people who aren't actually either but are simply Black, like Obama??? LOL https://t.co/68BVmSgP7w— Bree Newsome Bass (@BreeNewsome) July 16, 2019

Yeah, socialized medicine via Obamacare is a left-wing economic action item. Medicare for all is a socialist economic priority. And it’s not just these four women peddling this trash; the Democratic Party has rapidly swung to the far left. Did anyone watch the first debates? Tax increases of up to 70 percent of your income, gun control policies that amount to confiscation, open borders, health care for illegal aliens, and abortion virtually up to the moment of birth and taxpayer-funded. It’s a toxic cocktail of Marxism and infanticide. For Medicare for all to work, private health insurance has to be destroyed, something that these clowns don’t say because the overwhelming majority of Americans would turn against it. Yeah, shocker—most Americans actually like their employer-based plans. The tab for socialism is also something that is politically unpalatable when all is revealed.
Also, enough with the history lessons, left-wingers. You have zero grasp of it and every time you try to play professor, you come off as complete idiots. In principle, I don’t mind lessons in this subject, but don’t lecture me on concentration camps while you quote Nazi sympathizers and have a chief of staff who peddles the same trash—looking at you, AOC. Also, we don’t have Nazi concentration camps on the southern border and please don’t pass it off as something else. AOC tried to say she was correct because she was referring to the ICE detention facilities as a mass detention of people held without a trial, hence concentration camp. No, she invoked “never again,” we all know what she meant and what comparison she was drawing: we have Nazi camps housing illegal aliens and the Border Patrol agents guarding them are well, you can probably finish the perverse line of thought there. Oh, and former Japanese internment camps are being used to detain illegals and there are cages apparently. You know, Obama also utilized former Japanese internment camps and built cages, for lack of a better term, for detained illegal aliens, but you know—the philosopher kings of history must have just accidentally glossed over that part, huh? My eyes cannot roll hard enough.
For a party that likes to call their opponents Nazis because they hate them and say they know history, they know astonishingly little about either subject. It’s so little that, again, they quote Nazi sympathizers while lecturing us about concentration camps. Now that’s just rich.
