Ilhan Omar on same shit, different decade...



Where have we seen this before? Remember Freedom Fries...

The worrying thing is how many people will fall for it? Unless you are truly politically engaged (I would go as far to say nerds like us) People have short memories. A week is a long time in politics never mind 20 years in the average citizens life.

I know you remember all of this in the early noughties…

“I think things have gotten so bad inside Iraq, from the standpoint of the Iraqi people, my belief is we will, in fact, be greeted as liberators. - Cheney (Pompeo?!?!)

“It’s my responsibility to provide the American people with a candid assessment on the way forward ... Absolutely, we’re winning.” – Bush (Trump?!?!).

“I want to say something about these anti-war demonstrators. No, let’s not mince words, let’s call them what they are: anti-American demonstrators.” – Limbaugh

These leftist stooges for anti-American causes are always given a free pass. Isn’t it time to make them stand up and be counted for their views, which could hurt American troop morale? – Scarborough

“It’s not a laughing matter when we have influential idiots like this reducing troop morale, confusing the American people and emboldening our enemies. They are absolutely committing sedition or treason as far as I’m concerned.” – Savage

Well, you shouldn’t listen to these protests because they’re obviously helping Saddam Hussein…. It is worth noting, however, that Saddam was much encouraged by these protests.” – Bennett

I can hear them now...

And that was nearly 20 years ago, where although it would have been hard to believe at the time, in comparison to today, they were much more centre right and 'reasonable'. Good grief at that thought!!!

Ground hog fucking day in 3...2...1...if we let them get away with it. It needs to challenged at every turn.



Or, the sensible people listen, but unfortunately our leaders are the opposite of sensible. They actively want us to forget history so they can get away with their nasty in perpetuity.

1. Trump knows nothing about war

He is a draft dodger, his own grandfather was a draft dodger, that is why he was kicked out of his own country. The cowards always manage to send other peoples kids to war.
Perhaps someone should ask the two idiot Trump sons if they will be joining the service.

3. Yep.

It's up to us to remind the non-sensible people what happened the last time we heard this kind of talk. Make sure you remind them of all the dead troops, and the ones that came back permanently maimed physically, or psychologically damaged from it, too. Also, be sure to point out that its going to be many, many times worse if twe go into Iran.

5. As more comes out exposing trump lies for doing this

Even more people will run away from him and their corrupt party , and Putin and trumps ploy will backfire as others who are in positions to know the truth are now exposing there was no eminent threat, and this was a staged pre planned event for trump for redirection away from impeachment news, for profits, and to drive the deficit higher to weaken our economy by Putin. Did trump and family members profit knowing this ahead of time , like Eric claimed? They should open up an investigation into the family exposing them if they profited while manipulating the markets with this.

10. When officials resigned not long ago , and now others in the Pentagon expose trumps lies

How long before its learned trump is going after who in the Pentagon exposed him, and those that resigned and speak out against their lies, and plans to manipulate this strike for trumps political gains gets exposed ? I would bet he's really wanting their names now for his revenge. against them , and to encourage others against doing this in the future by making an example out of them. That's again how you'll know he lied to justify this all along.

11. I'm all for family privacy

But WHO was that American contractor that was killed?
Why was this person so important to start WW3?
Why hasn’t their name been released?
Liars, all of them.
