From Liz Sheld at PJM:
Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), chairman of the House Oversight Committee said on a Sunday snuff show that Trump’s tweets telling The Squad to “go back to where they came from” reminded him of the time he was told to “go back from where he came from.” Cummings made his remarks to George Stephanopoulos, who also revealed that has been told to “go back to where he came from.” This is a new epidemic, so many Democrats have been told to “go back,” why are we only hearing about it until now?
I have to say that nobody has ever told me to go back to where I came from, but that may be because I’ve made every effort not to change the United States nation as I see it, but to preserve it — original intent of the Founders, traditional American values and traditions, strict Constitutional construction, reverence for the flag and all it stands for, unswerving loyalty to our Armed Forces, respect for law and order, paying taxes, serving on a jury, defending the United States against criticism when traveling overseas (okay, I’m not sure whether a drunken fistfight with a Scot constitutes actual defense, but hey)… and of course, I don’t think I have to prove my undying support for the Second Amendment (along with the nochschleppers in the Bill of Rights). Frankly, if someone were to tell me to go back, I’d have nowhere to go. I’m here, and I’m staying — to the utter dismay, I hope, of liberal assholes and socialists everywhere.
As for these fucking Socialist Congressweasels (we all know who they are), the same cannot be said.
I’m not setting myself up as some paragon of civic virtue, here; but at the same time, I would suggest that my version of civic virtue is more in line with mainstream America than theirs — and I suspect that there are far more like me than there are of them — even among “traditional” Democrat voters.
I guess we’ll just have to wait for the 2020 elections to see if what I say is true.
