I've heard all of the arguments from both sides, and am convinced that the "abominable tweet" was, in fact, undeniably xenophobic, yet the racism interpretation is entirely a fabrication of the propaganda apparatus of the legacy political structure. President Trump mentioned no names in his tweet; he simply mentioned that certain Congresswomen should go back to where they came from and fix their own homelands before they tell the USA how to run itself. Now, it is true that the "Four Congresswomen of the Apocalypse" are all US citizens, and that only one was actually born abroad. However, there are several other facts operating here:

1) I would judge two of the four Congresswomen whom the legacy media assumes to be the referents of the tweet to be, in fact, white; specifically Alexandria Octasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib. Their "non-white" status appears to spring from a politically expedient desire to confuse cultural differences with biological race in order to delegitimize genuine intercultural debate as racial intolerance.

2). The legacy media have fiercely criticized President Trump's characterization of the migrants' homelands as "shithole countries", and yet they condemn any attempt to send them back to their homelands as being indicative of the basest form of inhumanity.

3). Had anyone questioned President Obama's policy of mass deportation of illegal immigrants, they would have been condemned as racists, whereas anyone who supports President Trump's policies along the same lines is now styled a racist.

4) Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, in response to questions as to whether or not she condemns al-Qaeda, has responded to the effect that it is long past time for Moslems to be called upon to condemn terrorism committed in the name of Islam. And I do, in fact, slightly agree with her as a German-American who still finds himself questioned as to whether or not he is a Nazi, fully seventy-four years following the destruction of Nazi Germany (to a significant extent at the hands of United States forces which consisted of German-Americans to the extent of one-third of their manpower (including the Supreme Commander, General Eisenhower)).

I have no problem whatsoever in condemning the National Socialist German Workers' Party in that her ideology degraded the value of human life to the extent of conditioning the very continuance of the lives of individual human beings upon arbitrary criteria determined by the party's ideology. What is it about Congresswomen Omar that makes her so unwilling to condemn al Qaida less than eighteen years following 9/11?
