Of all of the things the “Resistance” is trying to do to unseat President Trump, this is the most puzzling and let’s face it, they own a trademark on harebrained schemes. I have detected a plan by the left to portray Donald Trump as an anti-Irish racist. Sure, “Irish” isn’t even close to being a race, but that ain’t stopping liberals in their latest bit of lunacy.
I came across this story on Newsweek designed to instill rage at the President’s blatant bigotry:
Holy shit! The President is so racist he’s even deporting the Irish? Does his hatred of diversity know no bounds? Apparently not:
…the debate around immigration has intensified between President Donald Trump, Democrats and Republicans. While the current debate has largely focused on undocumented immigrants from Mexico brought to the United States as children, Irish immigrants, too, have become increasingly fearful of being deported by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
“It’s really indiscriminate. ICE, in their aggressive tactics of detention, are going after the Irish as much as they’re going after any other nationality,” said director of the Irish International Immigrant CenterRonnie Millar.
In case you aren’t already mortified, check out these “racist” numbers:
ICE deported just 34 Irish immigrants in 2017, compared to the128,765 from Mexico removed from the U.S.
Trump deported 34 people from Ireland? Why is this even a story? Oh yeah, it’s Newsweek and they have a quota for anti-Trump stories, so everything must be related to him in some way that attacks him.
Taken by itself, this Newsweek story is just another ridiculous smear on Trump, but there’s actually more. Last year the President used the common term “paddy wagon” to describe the police vehicle which takes suspects to jail. Naturally Al Sharpton went into a full-on race rage:
Rev. Al Sharpton is protesting President Trump for using what he says is an anti-Irish racial slur in a speech on Friday, the civil rights leaders announced.
“Paddy wagon” is the term that offends Sharpton, a former Democratic presidential candidate. Trump used the term — which refers to a police van — during his remarks at an event honoring police officers in Brentwood, N.Y.
Yup, Al Sharpton was furious with Trump for using an anti-Irish “slur” but he wasn’t alone in his insanity. Before he retired and then unretired from political commentary, super-kook Keith Olberman freaked out because Trump was deporting an illegal alien from Ireland who was busted stealing.
“ICE has nabbed and jailed an undocumented American from…Ireland. After 18 years here. This is madness,” said Olbermann.
Madness? For enforcing our immigration laws? Also, what the fuck is an “undocumented American” from Ireland?
Plus, last St Patrick’s Day The Huffington Post, Salon, The Washington Post, and Time lost their collective shit over a whole slew of Trump’s “crimes” against the Irish.
Clearly the left has put together a plan to paint President Trump as an anti-Irish racist, but the question is: why? The Irish are generally white and Trump is half Scottish, which is close enough.
My guess is that some liberal logic went into this plan: According to liberals America is full of racists who are having a hard time understanding why we should flood the country with black and brown people from “shithole” countries. But, if the liberals can convince the American bigots that Trump is going after white Irish people, maybe they will be outraged into accepting a horrible immigration policy that will open up the borders and grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens.
Or maybe I’m giving liberals too much credit and they are pushing this because they are all crazy. Either way, they really are all crazy.
