I’m still confused.

 

What has this to do with Trump telling them to ‘go home if they don’t like it’?

Standard obfuscating tactic, as used by JamesR123 yesterday: make up a strawman with the aim of accusing the poster objecting to the latest hard right dog whistle (Trump's tweet, here), of being a racist because (according to the strawman argument-) they're using or condoning a racist term.

Don't perpetuate racial stereotypes and bleat about racism.

I didn't strawman you at all.  I was getting straw manned constantly (not particularly by you).

 

I said that I would have no issue telling a foreign criminal to go back to their country.  Most people wouldn't.

 

You read that and saw all migrants are criminals.  This was a leap your mind made, not mine.  I suggested that this was revealing of your prejudices and asked you to do some research on crime rates of immigrants vs natives.

Your posts and mine about this are plain and clear, only a couple of pages back: you equated social nuisance with crimes in the specific case of foreign-born people (rather than limiting yourself to foreign-born criminals), as justification for telling them to go back to their country. I called you out about it. You've been trying to distance yourself from your opinion ever since, just like in this latest post of yours.

 

As for my "prejudices", even if your joining date did not feature under your user name, it's quite clear you've not been here long. Bless.

My post clearly said that I would happily ask foreign born people to leave if they commited a crime.  I made no such equivalence as the one you are accusing me of.  You made the equivalence and I called you out.

 

You revealed your own prejudice.  I am the son of an immigrant.

 

I am unsure as to the relevance of my joining date tbh.

Nope initially you did not use the context of them having committed a crime. That was one of the most striking things about your argument. Now you’re backtracking.

OK then. Let’s clear this up once and for all.

 

What crimes did the four democratic congresswomen commit?

I'm very happy to let thread readers be the judge of that. Your own Post 3546:

Not at all.  Have any party you are aware of made it policy that people can't suggest that foreign born  people go back home?

 

I would do it if someone was committing serious crimes, or being a social nuisance.

Your own post, your own opinion, your equivalence of social nuisance with serious crimes in the specific context of foreign-born people (highlighted for convenience). Own your <removed>.

What does your parentage have to do with it? Let me guess: you're trying to claim the moral high ground with it?

 

I am an immigrant myself, it is a very well-known fact to older posters, whence the relevance of your joining date.
