“Identity politics”, aka civil rights.
Go back to where you came from, Lisa Benson. Go back to Stepford.
The only “identity” which republicans accept as “American” is lily white with orange over-tones.
Even conservative Steve Kelley rose above the president’s racism, whereas Lisa Benson is going to be his enabler and defender. Lisa has made it clear that she is as racist as her Orange idol.
Congressional Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley all came to fight for health care, education, environmental and climate reform, social justice and economic fairness.
And they are making great strides in standing up for those things.
But Lisa Benson has a lot of nerve — a lot of BLAME THE VICTIM nerve — to be piling on the victims of a vicious racist attack by a bullying bigot. AOC, Omar, Tlaib and Pressley are not the ones who told minorities to “go back where you came from.”
They could have directed that same epithet back to Trump regarding his mother, his first wife and his current wife, since all of them except Omar were BORN IN THE UNITED STATES, and even Omar has BEEN A U.S. CITIZEN LONGER THAN MELANIA.
But they did not stoop to Trump’s racist level.
They did not crawl down into Trump’s sewer.
So, is there a bottom to your tolerance of racism and sexism, Ms. Benson?
This is Lisa’s version of “Im not the Racist You’re the racist”
Trumps isn’t believable and neither is Benson
And yet the Republic Party wants to return to 1949!
Headline! Donald Trump Makes True Statement! “I don’t have a Racist bone in my body!” He has, in fact, 206 racist bones in his body, plus bone spurs!
LOL! Great cartoon, Lisa!! :D
Lisa’s bubble seems to get smaller and smaller as times passes and there is little effort made to look objectively at what is going on outside that bubble.
And where does Lisa have to go back to?
That’s where they belong
Republicans identify with rich racists.
Love it! Spot on
Isn’t it interesting how Ms Benson completely ignores trump’s close personal relationship with a child molester and his clearly bigoted behavior in order to blame 4 congresswomen?
So you are running with the “Trump doesn’t have a racist bone in his body” lie?
Tell me, is he a jellyfish? Or some other boneless invertebrate?
It’s perfectly apparent to any rational person that Trump’s heart is racist, and I really don’t see what his bones have to do with it.
Liberty, Freedom of speech and EQUALITY really scares the snot out of conservatives like you, Lisa.
Tis the republicans that need to turn the party around to go forward, not the democrats.
Lisa has been drinking more than just the Kool Ade.
Benson meeting the ‘needs’ of her ‘Valley View’ readership?
If this is your interpretation of what happened… then you are so lost that I doubt you will ever see the light.
It is depressing that someone could be this blind to the world around them.
Gee, maybe SOME of us are NOT racist but just are tired of the identity politics. I can disagree with a white male just as quickly as with a black female, but get called a racist if I do the latter. Some people hear dog whistles when there are no whistles, just their own tinnitus.
Identity politics is a term mostly used by the right to try to delegitimize the fight for the rights of anyone who is not a white male.
Identity politics? Trump tweeted the racist tweets. His whole ideology is identity politics.
And combed over fake blonde hair….
You’re gonna have to try harder, Lisa, to prove to us that it isn’t the GOP that is playing ‘Identity Politics’ cause who is it that spends more time saying there is a war on Christians, Christmas, police, White people, White men, straight people, all Muslims are terrorists, all Central American immigrants are gangs, unarmed Black people are threats, and to criticize the Israeli government is to criticize the Jewish people across the world.Yeah tell us all about ‘Identity Politics’.
I look at this cartoon, and I wonder if Mrs. Benson has ever been told to “go back where you came from?” How can someone like her, a white citizen who has never had her legitimacy questioned, possibly understand the pain of people who have been made to feel like strangers in their own land because of something that is beyond their control?
I’ve had this question put to me before, and every time it was said it made me feel less like a man and more like some animal that needed to be put away. No amount of success in life or refrain of “don’t let it get to you” could ever make me forget that feeling, especially not now that people keep saying it, bolder and louder each time, egged on by this man who is supposed to be the leader for all of us, but treats half of us with disdain, if not outright hatred.
They finally found some women to attack to rile up the base. And this time they have a black woman, a latino woman, and 2 muslim women … one being an immigrant… its like a racist misogynistic dream. But 45 was right about one thing… Those women do need to fix the totally corrupt and crime infested governments of the countries they came from… which is exactly what they got elected to do.
Hi Lisa. Nice job of finding something unimportant to drivel about while trying to make Dems look bad. (PS: it was a failure)
Well done. You’ve got the anti-semites front and center.
Lisa Benson. You are accusing Democrats of Identity politics? The GOP uses Brietbart as it’s playbook. Every time Trump speaks, he flashes the ‘white power’ sign. Yeah. That ‘OK’ sign he always holds up. Three fingers up = W. Forefinger and thumb together = P. W P
Please don’t take my word for it. Check news clips of white ‘supremacist’.
Send her back, illegal alien Melania, her anchor baby Barron, and chain migration family members.
It appears we have another sad little troll on the board by the name of washatkc. This one isn’t as smart as the others. He needs English lessons.
Ok, now for another English lesson for the sad little illiterate troll that goes by the name of washatkc.
It should be “Oh LIsa, you’re just so mean”.
Do you have to be instructed on the differences between “your” and “you’re”? Are you still in grade school?
