Double Irony Alert

Many of y'all are aware that some of the pro-illegal-alien protests have featured slogans calling for Americans of Euroipean descent to go back to Europe - see first image here for an example. This sentiment is displayed by the descendents of Spaniards - not merely Europeans, but the first Europeans to invade the Americas.

What if this meme catches on? Should Coptic Egyptians demand that Arab Egyptians return to Arabia? Should the Ainu tell the Japanese and Russians to get out of their ancestral lands? Oh, and if Euor-Americans have to go back to Europe, what does that say about black Americans? And what about Halle Berry? Does she go back to Europe, or to Africa? Does she draw straws?
