Yesterday, Trump wound up a crowd of his followers, encouraging them to chant “Send her back! Send her back!” against Somali-born Muslim Ilhan Omar. He spoke as president of the US in the demagogic style of Adolph Hitler. He places her in extreme danger, inciting the psychotics among his followers to violence.
In response she tweeted a poem of Maya Angelou: “You may shoot me with your words. You may cut me with your eyes. You may kill me with your hatefulness. But still, like air, I’ll rise.” Omar is tough & uncompromising. But she should not have to work as a congresswoman under such racist & Islamophobic harassment.
There must be some way to take legal action, including impeachment proceedings, against the orange lump of lard inciting violence against a Black Muslim woman.
