Social media erupted with criticism on Wednesday evening after some in the crowd at a campaign rally for Donald Trump in Greenville, North Carolina, chanted “Send her back!” after the president criticized Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN).
The chant was short-lived, and began as President Trump began criticizing Omar for her history of antisemitic comments. Trump did not appear to anticipate the chant, or to encourage it, and did not react to it in real time.
The article goes on to state the following:
Reaction to the chant sent “#TrumpRally” to the top of Twitter trends in the United States. Democrats were aghast…
2020 presidential candidate Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) responded with a scathing tweet that included a threat.
“Whether it’s ‘send her back’ or ‘lock her up,’ ‘there has to be some form of punishment’ or ‘grab her by the p***y’—the throughline is contempt for women and anyone who threatens this president’s fragile ego,” Gillibrand tweeted. “He should be afraid. We are his worst nightmare. And we will beat him.”
Whether it’s “send her back” or “lock her up,” “there has to be some form of punishment” or “grab her by the p***y”—the throughline is contempt for women and anyone who threatens this president’s fragile ego.
He should be afraid. We are his worst nightmare. And we will beat him.

Other Democrats and some conservatives found the chant offensive, while some shrugged it off. Examples follow.
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.

SEND HER BACK was chanted at the #TrumpRally and I agree!
It wasn’t Racist! No matter what color you are YOU can go back home or move if you don’t like America.

Trump and his crowd are perfectly aware that “Send her back” is not describing voluntary emigration https://t.co/wFqgFnOSiA

“Send her back” is an appalling chant. Omar is a US citizen.
My less-catchy chant would be: “Condemn her bigotry, combat her radicalism, and investigate her seriously alleged fraud!”

My grade school history teacher asked us what we would have done if we’d been alive during the rise of a dangerous dictator. Would we cower? Would we fight?
It’s time for all of us to become the heroes we hope we would have been back then.

I’ve said this before but I think it is important to understand the public performance of racism as a pleasurable activity. There’s lust behind these shouts to “send her back,” a violent desire they want to make real. It’s the libidinal economy at work.

Never-Trumpers and radical Democrats misdiagnosing the audience as racist deplorables because they’re too elitist to even attempt to understand Trump culture hyperbole.
Conclusion: Guaranteed re-election for #MAGA

Check my feed. I’m very tough on Omar bc she deserves it, on the merits.
I am sickened by the hate-laced “send her back” chants. Shame on every person who participated.
POTUS has a responsibility to put an end to it. He alone has the ability to do so. Chant “vote her out.”

Anyone who follows me knows that I cover the far-left and that includes Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and I’m aggressive in my reporting which comes from a conservative angle
With that said, chanting “send her back” at Omar is not good
Keep in mind, I am one of her harshest critics

Here’s the President of the United States standing before a crowd supporters who are chanting “Send her back!” to a duly elected American congresswoman, who was born in Somalia.

It saddens me beyond belief that the standard-bearer for the Republican Party, my Party, is making “Send her back” his re-election rallying cry.
It’s so ugly. It’s so un-American. It just saddens me beyond belief. https://t.co/eM7WT5HZVq

Agree with Guy. “Send her back” is completely and totally unacceptable. It’s not a defense of Omar to say this is not how we treat American citizens. https://t.co/8bJXgWjMEC

In 1919 racists would scream “If you’re Black stay back.”
In 2019, 45‘s followers scream “SEND HER BACK,” referring to Rep Ilhan Omar
Make no mistake. This is the same extremism of yesteryear & irreparably harms our nation
We need compassion, not hatepic.twitter.com/lRgwl6Ak9j

You don’t have to agree with everything (or anything) naturalized US citizen Rep. Ilhan Omar says to stand with her tonight. I hope you will RETWEET this if, like me, your response to the vile chants of “Send her back!” at Trump’s hateful North Carolina rally is #IStandWithIlhan.
