Look at the crime rates
Friday, August 16, 2019
At President Trump’s rally for re-election in Greenville on July 17, he stepped on the toes of the “Squad.” Upon calling out Rep. Ilhan Omar, some folks at the rally started chanting “Send her back.” As I reflected on the event for which my hometown took a beating from the mainstream media, I reviewed statements made by the Squad and out of curiosity looked at crime rates in the cities they represent.
Omar on the 9-11 terror attacks: “Some people did something.” Speaker Pelosi grants Omar a seat on the Foreign Affairs committee. Fact: Members of Congress are exempt from the security clearance process. This committee will expose her to classified national security information. Minnesota’s 5th District is safer than 3 percent of U.S. cities.
Rashida Tlaib retweeted a supporter’s tweet who declared that her “first fight was for Palestine, always Palestine.” Also, Tlaib shouts, "We’re gonna go in and impeach the mother*****!" Michigan’s 13th district is safer than 2 percent of U.S. cities.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez presents a Green New Deal that is more about replacing America’s capitalist economy with a socialist one than a path to green energy. She was indirectly responsible for losing an Amazon expansion in the works for Queens. How many thousand jobs did she drive away? New York’s 14th District is safer than 52 percent of U.S. cities.
Ayanna Pressley, “We don’t need any more brown faces that don’t want to be a brown voice.” Massachusetts 7th District is safer than 18 percent of U.S. cities.
The Squad sit on various House committees. They have access to sensitive data. All four are women of color. I don’t have a problem with their skin color, but strongly disagree with their policies. My disagreement with their policies doesn’t make me racist. I’ll add that two of these Representatives need to go back to their districts and work on crime.
