Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-N) controversial past keeps getting dug up. Her tweets about how Israel had hypnotized the world to its evil and appearing to side with the Somali militias who engaged our troops in Somalia in the early 1990s have been unearthed. She also trivialized the 9/11 attacks as an event “where some people did something.” Now, we have this old interview on Al-Jazeera where she said that Americans have more to fear from white people than radical Islamic terrorism (via Fox News):
I am sure the media will now hound every Democrat to denounce this statement as racist. Right? https://t.co/UewkblF8Oo— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) July 25, 2019
A member of Congress is advocating for gender and race based profiling. Concerning violent crime her premise is incorrect and men are disproportionately victimized more — but that’s irrelevant because jihadism isn’t a race or sex, it’s an ideology. https://t.co/AeLIqgDEbV— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) July 25, 2019
In a resurfaced interview from 2018, anti-Trump Democrat Ilhan Omar responded to a question about the "quote-unquote legitimate fears" some people have of "jihadist terrorism," by saying Americans should be "more fearful of white men."
In the interview, Al Jazeera host Medhi Hasan said some Americans feel justified in fearing Islam, not out of hate but for their own safety, before listing a number of radical Islamic terror attacks. Omar dismissed this suggestion immediately and laid the blame on white males instead, calling for the profiling and monitoring of caucasian men.
"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," she replied.
"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."
So, this sounds pretty racist. And yes, you can be racist towards white people; I don’t buy into this ‘because they’re in control of institutions—it can’t be racist to trash white people’ argument. That’s an artificial liberal talking point to justify their idiocy on racial matters. At its core, it’s gender and race-based discrimination. Isn’t that…problematic? It only further adds another item on the list concerning why Omar is trash. She hates America. And once again, we’re back to this stupid game about hordes of radicalized white men, which exist only in a liberal’s imagination. There are millions of radicalized Muslims. They have committed acts of terrorism. They’re violent. And they’re a problem. That is a fact. It wasn’t the Amish who brought down the Twin Towers or the Swedes. It was radical Islamic terrorists, a group that Omar has failed to condemn.
