“Go back to where you came from” isn’t a “dogwhistle.” It’s been a core feature of racism in America for centuries

Remember when they tried to pretend he wasn’t really calling other countries “shitholes?” When the real racism was Democrats and independents agreeing that’s he’s actually a racist, and not just an old guy accidentally wandering too close to racist rhetoric? And when calling a fellow American “deplorable” because they said things EXACTLY like this was therefore beyond the pale?

Good times

Our president is a racist. He looks at Americans of color and says to the world “they should go back to where they came from.” Because to him, they aren’t Americans at all. Because racism.
