Click https://pancocojams.blogspot.com/2019/07/article-excerpts-comments-videos-tweets.html for a companion pancocojams post about this subject that is entitled "Article Excerpts About The "Send Her Back" Chant (Trump Rally July 17, 2019)". That post includes a July 20, 2019 article excerpt about Trump's reversal of his "criticisms" about this "Send her back" chant.

I divided these posts up because I think that together they were too long to read on mobile phones.

PANCOCOJAMS EDITOR'S NOTE
This blog post departs from my decision not to focus on politics in this cultural blog. I have published other posts on this blog on African American protest chants (click the African American protest chant tag for those posts). However, I've mostly stayed away from focusing current American politics (or even mentioning) Trump's name. But reading articles, tweets, and comments about the "Send her home" chant, and afterwards, watching videos of that rally, I feel compelled to document this historical, political, and cultural point.

To be very clear, I'm not being neutral in this post. Instead, the article excerpts, tweets, and the majority of the selected comments were selected which reflect my position as a person who considers the "Send her back" chant to be abhorrent for a number of reasons, and not just I believe that the chant is racist.

The crowd at Trump’s rally chanting “send her back” after the President viciously and dishonestly attacked Ilhan Omar is one of the most chilling and horrifying things I’ve ever seen in politics."

“Though Trump claimed on Thursday that he ‘was not happy’ with the chants and that he tried to stop the chants by ‘speaking very quickly,’ in reality the President stood silently and let the chants continue…”

"Preach, young lady. Preach! This year is the 150th anniversary of Gandhi’s birth. It’s about time speaking truth unabashedly to power came back into vogue."

"Trump is a fascist.
True.

Definition of fascist: a person who is extremely right-wing or authoritarian: fascists made death threats against immigrants and asylum seekers.

Definition of fascism: an authoritarian and nationalistic right-wing system of government and social organization.
• (in general use) extreme right-wing, authoritarian, or intolerant views or practice.

Racist is just such a loaded word with a long history of being distorted etc.
But fascist is really what Trump is.
They call democrats socialists and communist for having the audacity to stand up to fascism."

[quoting hornblower]
Trump has actually said he tried to stop the chant. Even he is embarrassed. That itself is pretty amazing.

"Uh, no. He said he sped up talking while it was going on, not that he tried to stop it. That would have required something along the lines of raising one arms to quell the crowd and saying “There’s no room for that kind of talk here. Let’s not have that, okay?” Which. He. Did. Not. Do."

Trump has actually said he tried to stop the chant. Even he is embarrassed. That itself is pretty amazing.

“He says a lot of things, and most of them aren’t true. Standing back and basking in the glow of his adorers chanting isn’t “trying to stop” anything. He truly thinks that if he didn’t chant along with them, he can claim he’s completely blameless, even though the world at large can see his orchestration.”

"Follow the link to her twitter and read the replies to her tweets. It is sickening."
-snip-
“Sickening” here almost certainly has the standard negative definition of disgusting (something that makes you sick) and not the positive meaning from African American Vernacular English (something that is or someone who does something very well).

Here's the address for Rep. Omar's twitter account: https://twitter.com/IlhanMN

"And he let them continue for 13 seconds, according to the New York Times, not 10 seconds, as the article here says. And he when he resumed speaking, he said nothing to indicate that he did not agree with what the crowd was chanting.

One of his toadies said something about it being “just a normal rally chant.” But I guess Goebbels said the same thing about “Sieg Heil!”

Example #2:Donald Trump supporters chant 'send her back' at rally - BBC News


BBC News, Published on Jul 18, 2019
US Democratic congresswoman, Ilhan Omar, has responded via Twitter after crowds at a presidential rally chanted "send her back."

Donald Trump was cheered at the rally in North Carolina after continuing his attacks on the four non-white Democrat congresswomen, known as "the squad". The chanting resembled those Mr Trump's supporters had chanted against Hillary Clinton during his presidential campaign in 2016.

"When I started watching, I thought for a second they colorized old footage from a Nuremberg Rally"

3. robert m.
"Why do I get a sinking feeling that this would be the same type of crowd that would've attended the lynching of a black man in the early 20th century. America has sunk to an all time low politically."

4. Wolfie Smith
"OMG. Am a student of History. This just reminds me of the Nuremberg Rallies of Nazi Germany from 1923 to 1938."

**
5. ElfHighMage
"Gives one a fright that so many "American Patriotic Citizens" actually support this level of hate. That's what it is: racism = hate. I can only hope the world watches this and learns from their own hate that America is presenting like a poster child."
