‘Go back’? Tlaib in re Trump in 2015: ‘Deport this a**hole’

In 2015, then-state Rep. Rashida Tlaib responded to an article about then-candidate Donald Trump’s proposal to close borders in an effort to stop radical Islamic terrorists from entering the country by suggesting he should be deported.

Which, of course, playing by their own rules today, is a super-racist and bigoted thing to say.

In a column shared by Tlaib, Trump stated his wish to close the borders in the wake of the San Bernardino terrorist attack until better vetting can be implemented.

“Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in Jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life,” he said.

Liberals were outraged, viewing the propoal as a ban on Muslims which a) was not true and b) never came to fruition despite their constant gnashing of teeth that it would.

That didn’t stop Tlaib, who had just served six years in the Michigan House of Representatives, from responding hysterically (not to mention with her now-signature potty mouth).

Oh, the humanity!

Similar sentiments from Trump directed at Tlaib and her fellow “Squad” members were painted by Tlaib, her Democrat colleagues, and the media as racist, bigoted, and xenophobic.

Omar Also Wanted to Deport Opponents

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), another member of the so-called “Squad,” has also been caught in past social media posts suggesting that ideological opponents be deported.

Former Democratic New York Assemblyman Dov Hikind, picked up on a tweet from 2012 in which Omar told an opponent “why don’t we deport you to where ever you came from.”

More Hypocrisy

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who called Trump’s “go back” comments “super-heated” and a means to pander to his base, once suggested that he’d also like to deport the future president. In an interview with race-baiter Al Sharpton in 2015, Cuomo said “Well, if I believed in deportation, he’d have a real problem if he’s a resident of the state of New York.”

Cuomo told conservatives that they “have no place in the state of New York.”
