After a long day at the resistance,
While I wait, I do not raid her fridge for a sustainable snack of a few celery sticks with spicy hummus. And I suppress the urge to turn on her garbage disposal to see if it's as terrifying as she found it to be in that video she posted a while back.
In this completely made-up scenario, I am simply in her home illegally. She knows this as she comes in. On my blue blazer I've pinned a name tag that says, "Hello my name is John. Hate Has No Home Here."
It doesn't have to be AOC's home. You might fashion your own nightmare dream sequence and put yourself in
So, no criminal penalty for crossing. And if you make it here, you get free stuff at taxpayer expense. Sounds like a great deal to me.
Does it apply to the kitchen table?
"Who ARE you," asks AOC. "WHY are you HERE? Do you belong in my house?"
These are simple, reasonable questions any homeowner might ask of a stranger at her or his kitchen table.
So why can't Americans ask it of people in our country? Why can't we ask people in this country -- on the 2020 census -- if they are citizens of
But if you dare ask it, or support the idea that it's a reasonable question, you'll be denounced by the Democratic left as a racist, a tool of Trump, and you'll be exiled for your sins.
Is it racist and evil for a nation to ask if its residents are citizens of that nation?

Republican politicians danced for chamber of commerce types who wanted cheap labor.
Trump pushed to have a question of citizenship on the census. The
"This is about keeping -- you know his hat -- make America white again," Pelosi sniffed at an event in
"They want to make sure that people, certain people, are counted," Pelosi said. "It's really disgraceful. And it's not what our founders had in mind. What they want to do is put a chilling effect so certain populations will not answer the form."
It is an issue that Pelosi's
Citizenship has nothing to do with race. We are all races here.
And citizens should have the right to dare ask who is in their country. What is disgraceful is that Pelosi would play the race card to protect her power.
What is equally disgraceful is that she's not roundly condemned for such talk by a media so enamored of the Democratic "resistance" against Trump that they willfully ignore danger signs in the culture. And this is a clear danger sign. But what else is new?

It is deplorable, and it is precisely this kind of thing that will drive independents toward Trump in 2020.
