When is enough, enough? Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has shown time and again that she is no friend to the United States. This elected congresswoman has blatantly bashed our president and our nation and continues to do so. And now, a video is flying around the internet that shows the native of Somalia in an interview actually saying that we should be afraid of white men.
In the 2018 video, host Medhi Hasan said, “A lot of conservatives in America say that rise in Islamophobia is a result not of hate, but of fear, and legitimate fear, they say, quote-unquote Jihadist terrorism, whether it’s Fort Hood, San Bernardino, or the recent truck attack in New York.” Then he asked Omar for her opinion; she responded:
“I would say our country should be more fearful of white men across our country because they are actually causing most of the deaths within this country. And so, if fear was the driving force of policies to keep America safe — Americans safe inside of this country — we should be profiling, monitoring, and creating policies to fight the radicalization of white men.”
Omar is a loud voice against America and our president, constantly telling us how wrong we are and how things need to change. She claims our president is racist, yet she makes very real racist statements. Let’s do a quick comparison:
Omar: In the 2018 video, she said, “I mean, I think there isn’t a debate about whether Trump is racist. I think he fits into every, every ‘ism.’”
Trump: To the Squad, he said, “Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough.” The House of Representatives passed a resolution condemning the president’s quote as racist.
Omar: “Our country should be afraid of white men.”
Omar: In a Vogue Arabia article she talked about living in a Trump world, saying, “It’s an everyday assault. Every day, a part of your identity is threatened, demonized, and vilified. Trump is tapping into an ugly part of our society and freeing its ugliness.”
Omar: “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.”
Omar: “Violent crimes and other acts of hate by right-wing extremists and white nationalists are on the rise in this country and around the world. We can no longer ignore that they are being encouraged by the occupant of the highest office in the land.”
Omar: Finally, who could forget her remark referring to the Sept. 11 terrorist attack? “Some people did something.”
The freshman representative is quick to hurl highly charged words and accusations even though she is guilty of the same and even worse. She was upset over President Trump’s call to return to her own country and fix things there first, yet she herself mentioned deportation to a former opponent in 2012 when she tweeted, “we are citizens & can’t be deported, why don’t we deport you to where ever you came from.”
Omar blames hate speech and threats for our unsettled nation, laying the bulk of it at the president and his supporters’ feet. Yet she is the one telling people to fear white men and insulting Americans and our country at a rapidly increasing rate. As Liberty Nation’s Jeff Charles reported, she has troubling ties to extremism as well. But apparently since she is a beloved Democrat, she can do no wrong.
