The America First Caucus makes it clear what they’re about by stressing Anglo Saxons and Anglo Saxon heritage. Using the phrase non-Aryans by Rep. Lieu is particularly acceptable as a result of Reps. Taylor Greene and Gosar’s language may have been taken straight from how the Third Reich framed its racism.
It might be attention-grabbing for Taylor Inexperienced to reply Ted Lieu.
A wise politician would have by no means had the concept for an “America First” white energy caucus, however nobody has accused the founders of this caucus of being good.
The caucus is supposed to pander to Trump’s supporters, however it additionally confirms an essential level. A bedrock of Donald Trump’s assist was racism, not financial nervousness, and Rep. Lieu put Greene and Gosar’s racism to the check.
