Trump’s Jamestown Speech Marred by Anti-Israel Lawmaker

Recently President Donald Trump ventured to the site of Jamestown, Virginia, the site of the first successful English colony in North America. He gave a speech there to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the establishment of the first popularly elected legislative body in what was then called the New World.

Trump’s speech was one of his inspirational ones, noting the hardships that the English settlers endured for the first few years and how the colony almost died out. He noted the system of government that the inhabitants of Jamestown established, with a judiciary and a system of rights to be respected as well as the legislature, comprising 22 men, called the House of Burgesses.

Trump did not avoid mentioning that 1619 was also the year that the first African slaves were brought to Virginia, ushering in almost 250 years of the barbaric practice of human bondage. The president ran down the history of the oppression of African Americans, leading to the end of officially sanctioned racism with the passage of the Civil Rights Act in the mid-1960s.

Amid the speech, President Trump and the audience had to endure an interruption.

Fox News explains:

“Ibraheem Samirah, a Virginia state delegate, interrupted Trump’s event commemorating the 400th anniversary of the first legislative assembly in the U.S. by shouting: ‘You can’t send us back! Virginia is our home!’

“Samirah’s protest was apparently in response to Trump’s comments about the ‘Squad’ earlier this month when he suggested that Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., should ‘go back and help fix the totally broken and crime-infested places from which they came,’ and then return to show how it’s done.”

Trump’s speech had already featured a boycott of African American Virginia lawmakers who were miffed by the president’s remarks, widely misinterpreted as being racist. Samirah, a Palestinian American, held up a sign for a minute before being escorted from the venue by security while the audience jeered him.

It turns out, that Samirah is not in any position to point fingers at other people for the sin of bigotry. Samirah has some strong feelings about the State of Israel, perhaps having to do with the fact that he used to be a volunteer for Rashida Tlaib, another Palestinian American and part of the so-called “Squad” of four radical female House members. Tlaib has also had some caustic things to say about Israel and Jews.

Fox News explains:

“In one Facebook post in 2014, Samirah shared an angry letter by musician Brian Eno who claimed that funding Israel was like supporting the Ku Klux Klan.

“I’d say worse,” Samirah wrote, sharing the letter. ‘But I’ll go along with Eno on this one.’

“In another post from 2014, after former Israel Prime Minister Ariel Sharon died, Samirah wrote: ‘Ariel Sharon, burn. Burn a million times for every innocent soul you killed. Hell is excited to have you.’

“Samirah also reportedly posted comments about Israeli teenagers, sharing an article about how Israel uses social media and dating apps to ‘legitimize murder,’ writing: ‘Most Israeli teenagers not only want to cover up the murders in their name, but they have young urges that need to be released somehow! Tinder’s perfect for that.’

“Samirah, who was a former volunteer for Tlaib, also is reportedly connected to multiple anti-Semitic organizations.”

Trump, for his part, was calm and unflappable as Samirah was marched out. Then, with hardly skipping a beat, he concluded his address. He mentioned such great Virginians as George Washington. Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and Richard Henry Lee founding fathers all. He noted that the seed of democracy that was planted in Jamestown took root and spread so that it caused the founding of the United States in 1776 and then encompassed the entire continent.

The president ended his address with a full-throated description of American exceptionalism, from the Revolution to the first landing of men on the moon. He even managed to slip in a mention of the Artemis deep space exploration program, which will, in due course, plant the American flag on the surface of Mars.

However, Samirah did accomplish one thing. Most of the media accounts of Trump’s speech focused on his disruption and not the inspirational eloquence of what the president had to say.

Trump’s mention of the speech on Twitter was short, to the point, and did not mention Samirah’s disruption:

“Great reception in Jamestown by both REPUBLICANS & DEMOCRATS. Respect for our Country’s incredible Heritage. Thank you!”

  1. Heavenly Father has NEVER made a mistake ! And when our nation was so afraid that lying Hillary would be our next President, over 150 million American’s gathered for many nights , on their knees, to pray for leadership from an American
    Patriot. Heavenly Father picked and awarded Donald J. Trump to be our President. We have not had a disappointing moment. Heavenly Father has never made a mistake in his choice of those who were chosen to lead and succeed !

  2. Wait – let me get this straight: black lawmakers in Virginia (who have a REAL racist for a governor – blackface and/or KKK outfit in med. school AND a female abuser as Lt. Gov.) boycotted this for POTUS’ non-racist “mean words” against a group of anti-Semitic, anti-American female DemonKKKrats? BWAHAHAHA…!!!

  3. This is why Muslims were ban from America. Hate and death to anyone who disagree with them . Who votes this disgraceful person in to office? Some stupid white people. American people are so uneducated and brain dead.

  4. Where in the constitution does it not say that the government cannot charge these un believers of our constitution for treason they should be removed from office and returned to their country and rant and rave they won’t because they would be executed on site

  5. The Dems and much of the press. “ blah, blah , blah, blah…..: Fox and the BBC are pretty good. Plan is to take President Trump
    down. That is the Dem’s only plan. Their incompetence is amazing. Tired of it!

  6. Racked my brain. Can’t for the life of me figure why our president tolerates these clowns. He doesn’t need this. Oh yes. HE LOVES THIS COUNTRY AND ALL OF ITS PEOPLE.
    God bless our great President Trump. Thank you Mr President for answering the call and saving us from total destruction.

  7. In the Jamestown Colony that disruptor would have ended up in the stocks where citizens would have pelted him with overripe tomatoes and other vegetables or oddities from the pigpens!

  8. Smirah, just another rude, ill informed Muslim….I don’t care what his religious beliefs are ;to protest during a President’s speech just shows that he is a LOW CLASS individual who is not worth listening to. no wonder he is a Talib supporter,…birds of a feather flock together.

  9. Native American persons (we the people) should be very concerned about the Muslim Caliphate moving around The U.S. Where they want to have a say in local government is YOUR town. They will get a campaign to elect a Muslim to your state or local government, back her with a LOT of money. Bring in and pay folks to talk up their candidate and overwhelm your RESIDENT candidate, thus gaining control of state governments. Just ask Flint Michigan. Detroit. St. Paul.Minneapolis, London, etc. “Illegal voters”? no problem. “Dead voters”, no big deal. ANYTHING to gain control, and make a nest — a DEN — for these anti-Freedom candidates. Ilan? Talib? Samirah? See what I mean. This is Jihad. The Caliphate, oozing into control here. We Are Their Enemy!

  10. I’ll say it again, in the 90’s I was in line with Palestinians who were against Israel. I am the father in law of a young man from Palestine. He told me of his Uncle, a Doctor, who’s property was bulldozed of its Olive trees and take from him by the Israel government in the 50’s or early 60’s. Of the slaughter of a small town by Israel troops. How they are purposely made to walk long distances for entry into communities out side of Gaza as no vehicles were allowed. The constant harassment by Israel troops. Then in 2007 when the residents of Gaza invited Hamas to become part of the “government” I stopped any and all support of Palestine. That is how desperate the humans of Gaza became. So fed-up that they then invited the terrorists into the government of Gaza. Now the United States of America offered 50 billion dollars to upgrade economic basic infrastructure in that region and they shunned the effort to aid the people of that area. The Israelis are not the KKK or anything of that racist B.S. People without any real idea of what is going on in this foreign country. Tell me you wouldn’t go all out to protect your family, your country, or the people you govern? Or are you just a bigot? If a foreign country attacks your country will you just collapse and allow them to come into your country, slaughter you, your people, your family? So, close your bias lips and put your fat gluteus Maximus in the shoe of the Israelis. Or, have you only one way thought on freedom since you live in a war free country? Life around the world isn’t very pretty if you’ve even seen life else ware. Airborne

  11. This person needs to get an education that’s state does not belong to her it belongs to the people who built it up. Omar does not belong here she knows it and everyone in the democract party knows it. This person has no clue about the past and never will all she is doing is taring down

  12. to all the Dem., candidates who support reparations, what will this cost the Jewish people, ghetto living, concentration camps and Islamic head choppings, what a life to see.

  13. The left is failing n a regular basis now. Trump is not Reagan but Ronnie was a trained speaker(actor) and had a very different demeanor.

  14. Our President best represents all that is GREAT about our USA! He did Not have to leave
    His comfortable life style to enter into the Political arena, but I am so happy that he chose
    To do so! He has the common sense to realize that the success of the citizens of our
    Country must flourish and we needed to be independent of other Nations to do so!!!
    Hopefully he will continue to bring jobs back to American citizens!!!

  15. 1619 i believe the english were the ones in charge and the english king that brought slaves to the colonies. it took us from 1776 til the civil war to rid ourselves of that terribleness. it was the republican party, founded in 1856 as the ”abolitionist party…..a party against slavery and dedicated to ending it” that did in fact end slavery. it was the democrat party for more than 240 yrs that promoted slavery. when it was ended it was the democrat party that created the KKK, jim crow laws, segregation and that all continued until 1964, when the president had to have the republican party join with him in passing the civil rights act of 1964, because the democrat party would not vote for it. it again was the republican party that gave the president the votes in 1965 to pass the voting rights act also….republicans were founded on the principal of anti-slavery and equality and continue to do so to this day. the democrat party, the party of slavery and now the party of hate and racism continues to project what they are…onto thosein the republican party, the party that ended slavery
