People that watch this show or have ever seen the dumpster fire of my interview on Seth Meyers know I have been one of Ilhan Omar’s most vocal critics on her policy regarding Israel, regarding some of her comments I and others interpreted as anti-Semitic. But the problem right now is, you’re taking away my agency to criticize her policy because you’re making this so much about race, xenophobia, racism. I think any time you’re hitting in a territory where you’re telling any American citizen who is of a different color than you, to send them back, I too didn’t think this is something I would see in my country, especially when we’re going into 2020.
It is so hard to be a racist these days. For so long you were able to dogwhistle and keep your obvious xenophobia under wraps without having to blatantly come out and say you hate brown people.
And then racists elected Grand Wizard Trump who is straight up holding rallies leading ‘send her back’ chants directed at the one Muslim woman in congress and you either have to 1000% join in on the chants or act like you’re mad for making your racism more apparent.
Donald Trump just made Ilhan Omar’s life incredibly unsafe but who gives a shit about her? Meghan McCain is the true victim here.
How can she continue to complain about Omar for absolutely no reason now outside of the fact that she hates Muslims if the president is doing it?
Honestly, Trump owes McCain an apology. It is SO difficult now to just make up reasons to dislike anyone who was born from a different country now. The block is hot for racists.
I really hope Meghan McCain can recover from this. Maybe there’s another brown lady she can hate for no reason other than the fact that she was born in another country that her dad didn’t get the chance to ruin.
