Huge news generating a ton of headlines....... Trump tweeted and the liberal establishment media and Democrats lost their collective minds. Big surprise huh? Like that hasn't been happening since the first day the then-candidate Trump rode down the golden escalator with his beautiful wife Melania and announced his candidacy for presidency.
In Sunday's Part one of "Pelosi Loses Control' ANP detailed the all-out war that has broken out between the socialist "Squad" of four newly elected Democrat House members, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and basically the rest of the Democrat party, including the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, and the Congressional Black Caucus, some of whom Ocasio-Cortez aligned groups are targeting for primaries in the 2020 elections.
Honestly conservatives were finding the whole cannibalistic nature of Democrats eating their own popcorn worthy entertainment, but the downside to the internal war was that normal Americans, and moderate Democrat voters that are not politically active online, were being given the misleading idea that Pelosi, formerly the most liberal member of the House, when compared to the socialist "Squad" of four, was actually sounding minimally sane.
President Trump, fully aware that socialism does not poll well with the majority of Americans, for the purposes of upping his re-election odds, would much prefer if the "face" of the Democrat party be the "Squad" of socialists, rather than the more moderate members elected in Republican-leaning districts, many of whom sided with Pelosi in the intraparty war, so he waded in with his infamous, guaranteed to unite Democrats behind the socialists, series of tweets.
Tweet One: "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......"
Tweet Two: "....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...."
Tweet Three: "....it is done. 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!"
Predictably the media went completely nuts blaring headlines claiming "racist," for a tweet that never once mentioned race at all.
NYT: Trump Fans the Flames of a Racial Fire NYT: Trump's Tweets Prove That He Is a Raging Racist WAPO: Republicans are quiet as Trump urges minority congresswomen to leave the country WAPO: Trump just denied his attacks are racist. He only confirmed the worst. CNN: Graham declines to condemn racist Trump tweets and calls Democratic congresswomen ‘a bunch of communists’ CNN: Trump denies racist tweets were racist CNN: How news outlets are dealing with the ‘moral dimension’ of covering Trump and his racist tweets Daily Beast: Trump Is a Racist. If You Still Support Him, So Are You.
Ever notice that the only ones actually obsessed over "race" are the ones screaming racism at someone else, who usually hasn't mentioned race at all?
PELOSI AND HOUSE DEMS CIRCLE THE WAGONS TO PROTECT THE DEM SOCIALIST 'SQUAD'
Even more predictably, Nancy Pelosi was forced to then circle the wagons around the socialist Squad of four, by publicly castigating Trump and standing up for the socialists in question, putting the focus back on them, once again making them the face of the Democrat party.
Not only did he force Nancy Pelosi to stand up for a group of socialists on social media, she then proclaimed she would be passing a meaningless resolution condemning his tweets, while the House Democats, most of which were at war with the "Squad" of socialists also condemned his tweets, thereby putting all of them squarely behind the most divisive voices in the party that have spent months threatening them, setting them up to be primaried in for 2020 elections and criticizing them ever time they disagree with the "Squad."
Think about that for a second.....House Democrats, even the so-called "moderates," and Pelosi, all of which are in a very public, bitter battle against Ocasio-Cortez and her merry band of socialists, are now having to publicly stand behind them. People that just days ago they were publicly ripping, sending "Goomba" puppet images to reporters claiming that Ocaso-Cortez was a puppet, and running to media outlets to criticize them anonymously, all now have to publicly support the very troublemakers that have made their lives hell, all because the President tweeted something.
Anyone that doubts that President Trump set the trap, put the bait in it, then pounced once San Fran Nan and House Democrats were caught in it, all they have to do is look at what he Tweeted after they walked right into the trap:
THE IMPORTANCE OF MAKING THESE SOCIALISTS THE 'FACE' OF THE DEMOCRAT PARTY
Over at the Spectator, writer Freddy Gray called Trump's tweets "stupid smart," expressing a dislike for the tweet itself but pointing out the brilliance of the trap he laid, stating "But Trump’s strategy doesn’t need to split the Democrats. He just needs to keep pushing them to the left of the American mainstream, where the Squad are. The more he can keep Omar and co in the public eye, the more he wins. Like all things Trump, it is stupid and smart at the same time."
Bingo....and a point many "conservatives" and/or moderates online just aren't getting. A divided Democrat party is fun for conservatives to watch as they continuously attack each other and eat their own, but it also takes the focus off how far to the left the 2020 Dem presidential candidates are moving as to not be targeted by the Squad of four Dem socialists that are getting all the attention.
For example, look at the immigration debate raging, where most of the candidates want open borders, want to decriminalize illegal border crossings and want to provide free healthcare to all illegal aliens.
Sounds good to the online radical liberal activists, but those are people that would never vote for President Trump anyway and will most likely vote for whatever Democrat candidate wins the nomination, but the swing voters, are not at all happy with those positions.
Axios reported on a focus group of 12 specific swing voters, nine people that voted for Obama in 2012, then Trump in 2016 and three people that were Mitt Romney supports and yet voted for Hillary Clinton.
• And the room got really animated when discussing their opposition to 2020 Democrats proposing to give health care to undocumented immigrants. "Why would you want to give it to another person from a different country for free?" Larry S. asked.
• "Give them free benefits, this that and the other thing. That is ridiculous," said Rhonda H. "They’ll come from anywhere and get a house and a car, too."
What they're saying: "We need to focus on Americans and not the immigrants," said Paul T.
• "We shouldn’t give away our birthright like candy," said Shawn M. "Meaning that all they have to do is cross the border illegally, pop out a kid, and they’re a U.S. citizen. Two illegals do not a citizen make," she added.
• "I don’t want to be a jerk," said Rhonda H. "I feel terrible for these people, but there are people in this country who are struggling to survive. We need to focus on the United States." Others mentioned veterans or homeless people in the U.S. who they thought she be prioritized over immigrants. "Veterans ... need more help. So that kind of, that doesn't make me happy that they really haven't done more" for them, said Kathleen R.
• A few others bemoaned the "endless supply" of migrants who make their way to the U.S. "There’s no end in sight," said Patricia B., a Romney-Clinton voter. "It’s just a frustrating, endless amount of people."
• Larry S., an Obama-Trump voter, said he's noticed an increase in "foreigners" among Michigan's population. "We’re helping everybody else, so they’re coming here for free and we're babying them," he said. "It’s time that we stop. We gotta think about us first."
• Even those who disagree with the president's way of handling it found agreement. "His stance on immigration is a little too far for me, but I tend to agree with it," said Anthony O. "His grandparents came from Italy 'the right way,' so to see people not following the rules … I have a problem with that."
As I pointed out on Sunday, another reason the President wants to force House Democrats to stand firmly with Ocasio-Cortez, and her sidekicks Omar, Tlaib and Pressley, comes from an internal poll document that has been making the rounds within influencial Democrats in America, which shows that 74 percent of voters that the Democrat party needs to beat President Trump in 2020, recognize Ocasio-Cortez, yet only 22 percent have a favorable view of her. As to Omar, 53 percent recognized her and only 9 percent has a favorable view.
Socialism was viewed favorably by 18% of the voters and unfavorably by 69%.
Capitalism was 56% favorable; 32% unfavorable.
"Socialism is toxic to these voters," said the top Democrat.
All the aforementioned points shows the importance to president Trump to force Pelosi & Crew to get staunchly behind the more divisive "Squad" of socialists, no matter how much their rhetoric and antics distract from Pelosi's agenda.
The knee-jerk reactions by the liberal media and Democrats every time President Trump tweets something they don't like is to be expected and to a lesser extent the same type of knee-jerk reaction from certain segments of the Republican party as well, but what they all forget is that these have been his tactics since the day he announced his candidacy.
He knows exactly how they will react and he uses that knowledge to get the exact reaction he wants. He also knows that the media and Dems are like the boy who cried wolf, they have been screaming racism at anyone that dares have a differing opinion for years and by now the public is numb to the word because it has become meaningless, overused and abused.
Anyone that still thinks President Trump didn't do this all on purpose, listen to him below, at around the 2:40 minute mark, he says "If Democrats want to wrap their bows around these four people........" before going on to detail some of their antics. He wants Democrats to embrace, surround and protect these four socialists, guaranteeing they are the face of the party.
