In light of the recent controversy surrounding President Trump’s tweets regarding the group of far-left Congresswomen known as “The Squad,” the left has gone into overdrive trying to assert that Trump’s comments were “racist.”
“Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came?” asked Trump, suggesting the lawmakers could “Then come back and show us how it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough.”
The president’s remarks ignited a firestorm from the left-leaning press, who quickly deemed his comments “racist,” however, two members of the infamous group of radical representatives have, themselves, been found to have made similar remarks.
In 2012, during an argument on Twitter, Ilhan Omar asked another user, “why don’t we deport you to wherever you came from?”
EVIDENCE: @IlhanMN told an opponent “why don’t we deport you to where ever you came from” in 2012!!
You can’t make this stuff up!
Retweet so her duplicity is exposed for all to see! https://t.co/fGv0ECZaOJ

Additionally, in 2015, Omar’s fellow “Squad” colleague, Rep. Rashida Tlaib, also suggesting deporting an American with whom she disagreed, none other than Donald Trump, himself.
Deport this asshole! https://t.co/pXTah0hTot

As the press focused on Trump’s recent comments, Tlaib and Omar’s own similar remarks re-surfaced, gaining the attention of conservatives who flocked to social media to point out what they saw as blatant hypocrisy.
Any minute now…

Oh this is funny. This is much more pungent than ” Why don’t they go back..” And she has to swear again and call names too.

“… why don’t we deport you to where ever you came from!” @IlhanMN
Does this not make her racist, sexist, and bigoted in general based upon her own words and assertions?
