President Trump held a controversial rally yesterday in North Carolina where attendees chanted “Send Her Back” in reference to Somali Congresswoman Ilhan Omar.
Trump singled her out for her record of anti-Semitic and anti-American remarks.
Immediately, the Left pounced to criticize these chants as racist.
In the same vein, counter-signalers on the establishment Right were quick to condemn these chants.
One of them was the notorious Never Trumper Ben Shapiro.
He tweeted in response to these chants, “Vile. Omar is awful. She is a radical anti-Semite with terrible views. She is also an American citizen and chanting for her deportation based on her exercise of the First Amendment is disgusting.”

The next day Trump actually disavowed these chants as well.
However, there’s a much bigger picture that Shapiro and company overlook.
First off, these chants were harmless in nature. At worst, they were WWE style chants.
There are no calls from Trump nor any Republicans to deport Omar for her comments.
Are these comments in bad taste? Maybe. However, suggesting that this will lead to any deportation of the Congresswoman is patently absurd.
Unless these chants manifest themselves into an actual movement to deport Representatives llhan Omar, this is much ado about nothing.
The same conservatives complaining about these chants are the same ones who chanted about the “WMD” and “imminent threat” narrative during the Iraq War. But in that case, it turned into concrete political action.
The fact remains that the modern-day Left is openly calling for the destruction of American culture. And they are ultimately acting on it. The politically correct agenda continues in full effect and will likely not stop anytime soon unless the Right confronts it head on. Shapiro and company can complain all they want, but the primary threat is coming from the radical Left, not those on the Right who make off-color remarks.
We can debate, whether or not some comments are in bad taste, but we should never forget that the Left is not only launching inflammatory comments, but they are following through with their tyrannical agenda.
It’s the follow-up action that truly counts.
The Attorney General on His Way Out?: Trump Mulls Firing Bill Barr, Advisers Trying to Dissuade Him
Trump is unhappy about more than just Barr’s recent voter fraud comments.
President Donald Trump is considering firing Attorney General William Barr, with the Washington Post reporting Wednesday evening that Trump “remained livid” at him.
On Tuesday Barr said that the Justice Department did not find evidence of “fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”
An unnamed senior administration official told the Post that although Trump is upset about Barr’s comments, he’s also unhappy with Barr about other matters, such as his previous lack of action on the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign and his handling of John Durham.
The president is pressuring Barr to release the “Durham report,” which could implicate officials in using the investigation to target Trump for political reasons. Trump also sees Barr’s secret appointment of Durham to DOJ special counsel as a “stall tactic.”
In the wake of Election Day Attorney General Barr authorized federal prosecutors to “investigate substantial allegations” of voter fraud. But in his comments Tuesday, Barr claimed that “most claims of fraud are very particularized to a particular set of circumstances or actors or conduct.”
“They are not systemic allegations,” said Barr.
Trump may want to fire Barr, but several advisers are trying to persuade him not to, according to the unnamed senior official.
Either way, it’s tough to see how Barr remains attorney general for much longer. If Joe Biden pulls off the steal and gets inaugurated, he will certainly replace Barr with his own AG. And if Trump hangs on for his second and final term, he may very well want to clean house and start afresh.
