From the Independent , an English newspaper.

Source-https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/trump-rally-ilhan-omar-chants-racism-white-supremacy-a9010681.html


snip-"In many nations where white supremacy (sometimes politely referred to as “populism”) is on the rise, there tends to be one constant: an Ilhan Omar. A woman of colour the nation can rally around to vilify, mock, pour scorn on and, horrifyingly, sometimes even worse."


snip-"Though slightly more polite than “N***** go home”, the chant “Send her back” serves the exact same purpose. Such chants make it abundantly clear that you – ungrateful ethnic that you are – should humble yourself and be a little more thankful for being here.

It should be noted that the mother of “Send her back”, the cesspool from which it emerged, is decades of alarmingly racist and anti-immigrant normalised narratives and media coverage. "

Scary times
