Early Sunday morning, the left-wing media went into hysterical overdrive again after President Donald Trump tweeted his belief that the infamous “squad” of radical Democrat women are incapable “of loving our Country.”
I don’t believe the four Congresswomen are capable of loving our Country. They should apologize to America (and Israel) for the horrible (hateful) things they have said. They are destroying the Democrat Party, but are weak & insecure people who can never destroy our great Nation!

After several responses from Ron Johnson that “everybody” should tone down their rhetoric, he ultimately tells @DanaBashCNN about this tweet that the congresswomen aren’t “capable” of loving the US: “That’s his opinion, I don’t agree with it.” https://t.co/YsB8iUPBXu

What the partisan media missed was that, only mere hours earlier, one of those “squad” members — anti-Semitic Muslim Congresswoman Ilhan Omar — had tweeted things that, one could easily argue, had preemptively proved the president’s very point.
One tweet falsely accused him of wanting to deport every black/brown person. Her basis for this tweet? The president’s widely supported immigration policies.
You all should end this charade and accept that this racist president wants every black/brown person deported and Muslims banned ??♀️
His immigration policies say this much! https://t.co/B6czPntRn4

The second tweet contained a quote from an attached article from the “The Progressive,” a far-left magazine. Written by a far-left commentator, the piece defended the congresswoman’s war on “American imperial power,” i.e., America’s foreign policy decisions.
“It’s not, of course, an accident that the rightwing imagination obsesses over the woman who, embodies much of what Barack Obama was accused of being by the “birthers”—including Donald Trump, now Birther-In-Chief. She’s Muslim.”
It’s full on madness! https://t.co/kvhCcGvUpC
— Ilhan Omar (@IlhanMN) July 20, 2019
Writing about the disgraceful moment back in February when Omar berated an American Jewish diplomat, commentator Sarah Jaffe described it as “the bluntest confrontation I’ve seen of American imperial power—and she did it with a tiny, confident smile on her face, shutting down Abrams’s bluster with a simple ‘That was not a question.'”
Sure it wasn’t a question. It was a “beyond disgraceful” attack on a well-reknowed Jewish-American hero, Elliott Abrams — an attack that included Omar repeatedly misstating his name, repeatedly cutting him off whenever he tried to reply and repeatedly suggesting he’s a genocidal maniac.
Here’s a reminder of what that looked and sounded like:
At the time, this was cited as one of the most clear-cut pieces of evidence thus far of the congresswoman’s anti-Americanism and anti-Semitism.

The fact that “Congresswoman” Omar, who can barely speak English and is blatantly anti-Semitic/anti-American, is allowed to question Elliott Abrams in the manner in which she did is appalling.
She should be forced out of Congress.#DemocratsAreDestroyingAmerica

And now, months later, she’s proudly linked to and shared a quote from an article that praises her for her stunning, disrespectful behavior toward Abrams.
But there’s more.
The piece also praised the congresswoman for her blatant anti-Semitism.
“Accused of anti-Semitism over her tweets criticizing the American Israel Public Affairs Committee by not only Trumpists but by Chelsea Clinton—whose pious ‘as an American’ pearl-clutching handed ammunition to the right—Omar has not backed down,” it reads …
After Omar posted an anti-Semitic tweet in February, former President Bill Clinton’s daughter Chelsea Clinton joined the congresswoman’s critics by duly noting that anti-Semitism shouldn’t be tolerated from anybody, “regardless of party.”
Why shouldn’t it be tolerated? Because, one, it’s a form of bigotry, and two, because Israel is, has been and will likely forever remain America’s closest ally.
Co-signed as an American. We should expect all elected officials, regardless of party, and all public figures to not traffic in anti-Semitism.

In concluding her piece for The Progressive, Jaffe claimed that the president hates Omar (that’s an unsubstantiated allegation) — and that he does so in part “because she has been one of the loudest voices challenging the hegemony of U.S. power, which has always relied on brute force to say who’s in and who’s out, both inside and outside of its borders.”
“She is unwilling to accept the bipartisan consensus that has ruled in Washington for too long, that says some people count and the lives—and deaths—of others do not. And that makes her dangerous.”
In other words, the president dislikes the Muslim congresswoman because, it would seem, she doesn’t like it that America is the world’s number one superpower …
Now contrast this stunning piece that Omar shared with what the president wrote.
“I don’t believe the four Congresswomen are capable of loving our Country,” he’d tweeted. “They should apologize to America (and Israel) for the horrible (hateful) things they have said. They are destroying the Democrat Party, but are weak & insecure people who can never destroy our great Nation!”
Omar couldn’t have better proved his point if she’d tried …
