House Condemned President Trump for “Racist” Remarks
The House condemned President Trump for making “racist” remarks aimed at “The Squad” – the four freshmen Congresswomen we have all grown to…um…never mind. The remarks weren’t “racist” in any way shape or form, but they were truthful. So the House passed a resolution condemning the President 238-185.
H Res 489: Condemning President Trump’s racist comments directed at Members of Congress.
This resolution states that immigrants and their descendants have made America stronger and naturalized citizens are just as American as those whose families have been in the United States for generations. It also expresses a commitment to keep America open to those who lawfully seek refuge from violence and oppression and those willing to work hard to achieve the American Dream, regardless of race, ethnicity, faith, or country of origin.
The resolution strongly condemns the President’s racist comments and states that they have legitimized hatred of new Americans and people of color, including his reference to immigrants and asylum seekers as “invaders.”Congress Resolution 489
Here are the reasons the House condemned President Trump:
…..Congresswomen, who I truly believe, based on their actions, hate our Country. Get a list of the HORRIBLE things they have said. Omar is polling at 8%, Cortez at 21%. Nancy Pelosi tried to push them away, but now they are forever wedded to the Democrat Party. See you in 2020!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 16, 2019
Our Country is Free, Beautiful and Very Successful. If you hate our Country, or if you are not happy here, you can leave!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 16, 2019
…..shouting of the F…word, among many other terrible things, and the petrified Dems run for the hills. Why isn’t the House voting to rebuke the filthy and hate laced things they have said? Because they are the Radical Left, and the Democrats are afraid to take them on. Sad!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 16, 2019
The House condemned President Trump
It all started today with Nancy Pelosi throwing a fit on the floor of the House, calling President Trump a “racist.” It’s against the House rules to call the President a racist. Georgia Congressman, Doug Collins, immediately objected and demanded her remarks be removed. The spat delayed the proceedings by about 2 hours. Her remarks were listed as “out of order.”
Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.), a member of the Congressional Black Caucus who was sitting in the speaker’s chair for the dispute, didn’t want to be part of it when it became clear that Pelosi was going to lose a ruling by the House parliamentarian over whether her comments would be allowed.
While Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) urged Cleaver to ignore the parliamentarian’s ruling – a huge risk for a chamber that religiously follows precedent – the Missouri Democrat decided to “abandon the chair,” a shocking move that left it empty for a moment.
As Cleaver stormed off the floor, several Democratic members could be heard gasping. Others turned to each other with confused looks on their faces
“This whole day, we haven’t gotten anything for the American public,” Cleaver later told reporters. “And at the center of this is just one man, all this is based on one man’s words.”
Democrats then scrambled to find someone to take Cleaver’s place. Members of the Congressional Black Caucus, several of whom were on the floor for the debate, refused, not wanting be the one to strike the speaker’s comments. Rep. G.K. Butterfield (D-N.C.), a former CBC chairman, briefly stepped in for a moment, followed by House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), who read a parliamentary ruling when announcing that Pelosi’s comments were “out of order.”Politico
So in the end, the Democrats violated their own rules just so they could censure the President for tweeting what we all want to say: that the four Congresswomen should either love it or leave it. They hate Israel. They hate the Border Patrol. They hate Trump. They hate the American flag. They hate white men. They call the CBP and ICE nazis. They stand with terrorists. They simply hate America.
Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Ayanna Pressley are all technically (on paper anyway) Americans. Three were born here, one was not. But they continue to push their so-called progressive garbage- and not nicely, I might add. Tlaib has used profanity towards the President.
Which is more obnoxious? We’d vote that “The Squad” fits that description before President Trump.
