@MaajidNawaz My thoughts:
1) Britain is about the least racist nation in Europe, studies confirm
2) We are right to be proud of that
3) We all know it was bad in the past: we have come a long way (cont)
@MaajidNawaz 4) How you feel is very understandable and I share how you feel
BUT (and there has to be a but)
5) America is NOT Britain and their situation very different to ours
6) Lawless borders have created major social pressures in America
7) An Injustice against all American citizens
@MaajidNawaz 8) President Trump was elected by the grassroots of central USA specifically to bring rule of law to the border
9) But he has faced entirely hostile Media who simply will not report fairly
10) he has counterd this by TROLLING the narrative, very effectively
@MaajidNawaz 11) He deliberately set off this storm, not because he is racist (I believe) but because it is very powerful: a minor hit from him, where people who call him racist all day long call him racist again
12) but major hit against the democrats by putting their hypocrisy in spotlight
@MaajidNawaz 13) Because these four women ARE racists, and they DO hate America
14) There associations and opinions are horrendous
15) and they weaponise their skin colour and the race card
16) Its ALL they do
@MaajidNawaz 17) While only Omar is a 1sr gen immigrant, the others are all 2nd gen
18) and they have NOT assimilated
19) That's not how many Americans including BAME immigrants think it should be
20) why should lawful immigrants see illegals get EVERYTHING on a plate?
@MaajidNawaz 21) A sentiment many Britons DO agree with: fairness justice rule of law
22) These radicals have effectively hijacked the democrat party
23) Pelosi has been folding before them: she tried standing up to them end of last week, they called HER racist
@MaajidNawaz 24) Whether we like it or not, Trump uses the methods he has because he IS denied the fairness or respect in media every other President has had
25) Because he is not a radical open borders globalist
26) I do appreciate the RISKS to way Trump plays the game
@MaajidNawaz 27) I do appreciate how disquieting we brits find that
28) But politically, its devastating, and Trumps base (which continues to expand especially with BAME americans) cheers him for breaking what they see as the tyranny the Globalist medias support for radical globalists
@MaajidNawaz ...has created, repressing debate free speech and weakening America for many years
29) I believe we should at least try to empathise
30) meanwhile our own media response has been absurd, facile, shallow, and hopelessly hypocritical
@MaajidNawaz 31) because this IS true: and its telling our media is only showing HALF of what is CLEARLY a two-part Tweet!
32) Which I have called the BBC to account over here:
@MaajidNawaz Tlaib: openly anti semitic backers and extremely aggressive
Omar: Al Qaeda sympathiser with war criminal dad hiding in US
@MaajidNawaz Acasio Cortez: racebaiting with dogwhistle lies over both cause and situation at US border, "all about the benjamins"
Pressley: demands mono culture thinking based on skin colour
etc etc the more one digs the worst it gets
@MaajidNawaz 32) Does Trump using the phrase he knows will trigger the media to highlight all of this and create the response where "the squad" repeat their tropes (they have nothing else) effectively ensuring Rep talking points justify what he said?
@MaajidNawaz 33) Ultimately, I find that a very hard call. This is not a normal situation and Trump is doing what he feels he needs to do to deliver on his election promises
@MaajidNawaz 34) Are we really in a position to judge?
35) And if NOT, should we not refrain from damaging our relationship?
36) If we ARE going to talk about it, we should talk about ALL of it
37) Objectivity absent UK media
