Rep. Rashida Tlaib, responding 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 in 2015, suggested 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 states 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 it as a ban on Muslims which A) was not true and B) never came to fruition despite their constant fretting that it would.
That didn’t stop Tlaib, who had just served six years in the Michigan House of Representatives, from responding hysterically.
Deport this asshole! https://t.co/pXTah0hTot

Oh, the irony.
Similar sentiments from President Trump – hyperbole for both, since neither, as citizens, could be deported – were painted by Tlaib, her Democrat colleagues, and the media as racist, bigoted, and xenophobic.
Oh my gosh. Look at this tweet from 2015. Tlaib did the worst thing anyone can possibly do which is to say an American citizen should be deported. CNN and MSNBC are going to be very upset. https://t.co/5kGpGwPPOx

Omar Also Wanted to Deport Opponents
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), another member of the so-called ‘Squad,’ has also been caught in past social media posts suggesting 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.”
EVIDENCE: @IlhanMN told an opponent “why don’t we deport you to where ever you came from” in 2012!!
You can’t make this stuff up!
Retweet so her duplicity is exposed for all to see! https://t.co/fGv0ECZaOJ

New York governor Andrew Cuomo, who called Trump’s ‘go back’ comments “super-heated” and a means to pander to his base, also once suggested that he’d 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.”
This is the same guy who told conservatives that they “have no place in the state of New York.”
These are all comments no different than what the President said. It’s just that only he is racist for saying such things. Only he incites violence. Only he inspires death threats.
As Trump said, we’re not exactly dealing with sane people here.
