Yesterday, the four progressive congresswomen aka the Squad – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib held a press conference and fought back against the racist attacks from the occupant of the White House.

Trump is just a symptom of the racist agenda of the GOP and their base

You’ve probably heard/read by now about the racist attacks the occupant unleashed against the freshmen lawmakers who are 1) non-white and 2) women. If you haven’t, below is what happened.

3 of the 4 congresswomen were actually born in the US but that didn’t stop Trump from tweeting last Sunday that they should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime-infested places from which they came” – so those horrible places the occupant spoke about, going by facts, are actually the US.

Trump doubled down his racist attacks yesterday, tripled down today, and continued to lie his ass off about how Ilhan Omar hates Israel and that she’s a supporter of the Al Qaeda which is total BS.

We been knowing Trump’s always been racist but what/who put the battery in his back to be this openly and utterly racist? The GOP, Fox News and the Republican base. Check out the bullet points below:

You get the idea.

The appalling inaction of Dem establishment

“We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the hateful words and actions of the bad people but for the appalling silence of the good people.” – Martin Luther King Jr.

So what have the Dem leaders been doing thus far to fight back against the agenda? Not much. House leader Nancy Pelosi has 1) been against impeaching Trump, saying he’s “not worth it”, 2) failed to protect the newly elected congresswomen from the attacks by the Republicans and instead chosen to belittle and diminish their influence.

Were Trump’s latest remarks a wake-up call to the Dem leadership then? Nah, they kindly invited the Republicans to join them to “condemn” Trump’s remarks together – which of course got laughed off by the GOP.

“It’s easy to see when you look at me, if you look closely 50 don’t back down” – 50 cent

The Squad didn’t back down, tho. The progressive congresswomen, knowing they can’t depend on the leadership to be their reliable ally, chose to stand up against Trump, called out his BS, and made a compelling case for his impeachment. Perhaps the vets should learn a thing or two from the rooks.
