Ilhan Omar Says Those Who Dislike Her Are ‘Anti-Muslim, Anti-Immigrant, Anti-Black, Sexist’

Since being elected to Congress in 2018, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn) has been embroiled in controversy after controversy as her own corruption has been showcased to the public.

She’s been caught doing things like funneling campaign money to her husband’s firm, and she’s been hit with ethics charges for fraud related to immigration, taxes, and even her previous marriages.

Though there are plenty of reasons for Americans to be wary of this congresswoman, Omar herself is saying that if you don’t like her, you must be an “anti-muslim, anti-immigrant, anti-black, sexist.”

Omar Says You’re Racist If You Don’t Like Her

Omar made this comment during a new interview with the New York Times in which she whined about how much “racism” she constantly faces in the United States.

During this interview, Omar was asked about a passage she wrote in her autobiography, “This Is What America Looks Like: My Journey from Refugee to Congresswoman.”

“I am, by nature, a starter of fires,” Omar wrote in the book. “My work has been to figure out where I’m going to burn down everything around me by adding the fuel of my religion, skin color, gender or even tone.”

“Couldn’t that kind of language be interpreted as a form of demagoguery?” the times asked the Minnesota congresswoman.

Omar Responds

Omar had this to say in response:

It’s metaphorical. There are many times when people will say, “Something you said has agitated this space.” And it’s like, no, it’s me just showing up that did it. T

here are times when I will choose to not show up, because I know that my presence brings about intensity that isn’t going to be helpful. There’s no one else that exists in a space where they have to deal with the hate of anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant, anti-blackness, but also with sexism.

People will say it’s my “tone.” I’m like, you’re agitated by my tone because you think people like me should be sitting in a corner, not heard and not seen. Everything that comes out of my mouth is going to be filtered through the lens of you despising my existence.

So despite all of her documented failings and examples of corruption, Omar sees herself as perfect in every way. If you don’t agree with her, you must just be a racist!

This is what happens when identity politics goes way too far.

Minnesota Democrat Rep. Refuses To Defend Ilhan Omar: ‘She Doesn’t Belong In Our Party’

Minnesota Democrat Rep. Collin Peterson took a swipe at Congresswoman Ilhan Omar saying “she doesn’t belong in our party.”

Peterson was addressing past comments in which Omar dismissed the 9/11 terrorist attacks as “some people did something.”

He had previously come to her defense.

In an April interview, Peterson had explained where Omar might have been coming from.

“I think she was trying to say that some people in her community feel like they’re being targeted,” he said.

When confronted more recently, the Minnesota Democrat walked back his comments.

Ilhan Omar ‘Doesn’t Belong In Our Party’

In a video obtained by the New York Post, Peterson is questioned by a tracker for the National Republican Congressional Committee.

“Do you have any comment as to why you defended Ilhan Omar?” they ask.

Peterson responds by saying the Minnesota Squad member doesn’t belong with her Democrat colleagues.

“I don’t defend her,” he said. “She doesn’t belong in our party.”

Contrary to the above tweet, it is plainly obvious what prompted the broadside.

Did Collin Peterson suddenly develop the moral courage to denounce the radical Omar?

No, of course not.

He’s trying to save his skin. Peterson, a 16-term incumbent, is in a district that President Trump won by over 30 points in 2016.

He’s currently in a dog fight with Republican Michelle Fischbach to retain his seat. Last month, a poll showed Fischbach with a 10-point lead.

Is It Peterson or Omar Who Doesn’t Belong?

The Democrats have gone so far astray, playing footsie with radical socialists, that it’s difficult to say whether it is Omar or Peterson who doesn’t belong in the party.

Peterson, who opposed the impeachment of President Trump and is considered a ‘pro-life Democrat,’ is practically a dinosaur.

Presidential nominee and presumable party standard-bearer Joe Biden aligns himself more with Omar.

Omar believes Biden “is going to be responsive to the policy positions we are advocating for.”

Biden’s running mate, Kamala Harris, is practically a Senate member of the Squad, ranking as the most liberal Senator of 2019.

In reality, it may be Peterson who is on the outside looking in at the most radical, pro-socialist, anti-American version of a party in the history of the United States.

Ilhan Omar Demands That President Trump Resign For Downplaying COVID-19

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) just called for President Donald Trump to resign once again, this time because he downplayed the COVID-19 pandemic while simultaneously admitting in interviews with Bob Woodward that he knew the virus was “deadly.”

Omar Demands Trump Resign

“Over and over again, Donald Trump downplayed the threat of COVID-19 — all while knowing how dangerous it was,” Omar tweeted on Thursday. “Almost 200,000 people have paid the price for his lies with their lives. If he refuses to resign, we will vote him out.”

RELATED: Ilhan Omar Claims Violent Riots Are Simply An ‘Uprising’ Against American Oppression

Omar posted this alongside a tweet of Trump’s from March 2020. In this tweet, the president pointed out that the common flu had killed more Americans than coronavirus.

“So last year 37,000 Americans died from the common Flu,” he tweeted. “It averages between 27,000 and 70,000 per year. Nothing is shut down, life & the economy go on. At this moment there are 546 confirmed cases of CoronaVirus, with 22 deaths. Think about that!”

Biden Also Downplayed COVID

Trump has said that he downplayed the COVID-19 pandemic because he did not want the public to panic. Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden did the exact same thing back in February, something that Omar is conveniently ignoring.

“Barack [Obama] and I, when we were — as president and vice president – we took on the virus that was threatening all of Africa and, uh, the rest of the world,” Biden said as he forgot the name of the Ebola virus. “And we set up a mechanism that worked.”

“But I want to take a moment to say it’s not a time to panic about coronavirus, but coronavirus is a serious public health challenge,” he added.

Omar Has Previously Called For Trump To Resign

This is far from the first time Omar has called for Trump to resign. She first called for his resignation in November 2019, during the House impeachment investigation into his alleged efforts to have Ukraine interfere in the election.

“The President of the United States broke our laws and betrayed our country,” Omar tweeted at the time. “He needs to resign.”

Americans Are Rallying Around the President: Approval Rating On Coronavirus Handling Skyrockets

The American people are voicing their approval of how President Trump is handling the coronavirus crisis, with a new poll showing his approval ratings skyrocketing.

In the span of just one week, the President turned his negative approval ratings in dealing with the pandemic completely around.

According to a new ABC News/Ipsos poll released on Friday, 55 percent of Americans approve of the President’s management of the coronavirus problem, while just 43 percent disapprove.

These numbers mark a nearly exact reversal of results from one week earlier.

What Changed

We would argue that it occasionally takes time for the truth to come out in the United States when the entire media complex is hell-bent on destroying the President.

Yes, Trump did try to quell panic by downplaying the threat early on. But as any good President does, he evolved on the matter. Remember when Barack Obama was hailed as a hero for ‘evolving’ on things?

The President quickly – faster than any Democrat who was more focused on impeachment – buckled down and got to work trying to solve this crisis.

“Over the course of a week, the president has shifted his approach and tone, giving daily briefings on the crisis since Saturday, alongside the White House task force leading the response to the coronavirus and announcing some severe measures to combat the virus,” ABC News reported.

“He’s also taken on a more somber tone, saying of his own tenor ‘people actually liked it’ as the reality of the scale of the virus set in.”

Democrats Support Trump

Here’s where things get a little shocking – Despite every attempt by prominent resistance lawmakers to paint Trump as a racist for calling the pandemic a “Chinese virus,” Democrat voters’ support for the President has doubled.

“30 percent of Democrats approve, which is about double the number from last week’s poll, and 69 percent disapprove, down from 86 percent,” reports ABC News. “Meanwhile, an overwhelming 92 percent of Republicans approve, up from 86 percent last week.”

President Trump recently signed the Families First Coronavirus Response Act which will provide economic assistance to America’s businesses and workers.

At the same time, FDA Commissioner Dr. Stephen Hahn noted the “record time” it’s taking to pursue a coronavirus vaccine due to an “impressive public-private partnership,” something the President has been advocating.

Near-Universal Praise

You know the tide has to be turning on public opinion when even Rep. Ilhan Omar, a Trump-hater to the extreme, is praising the President for an “incredible” and “right response” to the coronavirus crisis.

“[Ayanna Pressley] always says, unprecedented times require unprecedented leadership and we are seeing that in our country right now,” Omar wrote.

Ronny Jackson, the former lead White House doctor appointed by Barack Obama, praised President Trump saying his ‘quick and decisive’ actions have saved “countless American lives.”

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, provided positive feedback on the President’s quick action in implementing necessary travel bans.

President Trump has reminded the American people that “nothing will stand in our way as we pursue any avenue to find what best works against this horrible virus.”

That is the kind of leadership we need right now.

Tlaib Called ‘Not American’ After Picture Shows Her Wearing T-Shirt That Erases Israel

Republican Dalia al-Aqidi, a challenger to Ilhan Omar’s congressional seat, blasted Rep. Rashida Tlaib after a photo emerged of the Michigan Democrat wearing a t-shirt which wipes Israel off the map.

The picture shows Tlaib gleefully celebrating the release of a book by another anti-Semite, Linda Sarsour.

Some observers noticed the t-shirt she was wearing features an image depicting the “state of Palestine” where Israel is currently located.

Wipes Israel Off the Map

The image shows an outline of Israel with words, according to one online vendor which sells the shirts, that “spell the word Palestine up close.”

“Stand in solidarity with Palestine by wearing this beautiful Palestinian tee-shirt,” the online store description of Tlaib’s t-shirt reads.

Tlaib’s Hatred of Israel

Tlaib has a ridiculously well-documented history of anti-Semitic statements, ranging from policy disagreements to the absolutely absurd. The following is a short rundown:

  • Tlaib said thinking of the Holocaust provides her with a “calming feeling.”
  • Accused pro-Israel advocates of having dual loyalty.
  • Has a long history of associating with Palestinian terrorists.
  • Supports the BDS movement and posed for photos with a campaign fundraiser who promoted anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.

Just this past month, a former New York Democrat lawmaker was forcibly ejected from an event featuring Tlaib when he dared to ask her about past anti-Semitic statements.

Anti-American

Aqidi, an Iraqi refugee, told the Washington Examiner that Tlaib’s shirt, as well as her history of vile statements, disgusted her.

“I grew up in the Middle East, where erasure of Israel from the maps means only one thing: genocide against the Jewish state and its citizens,” she said. “We see it from Hamas and other Muslim Brotherhood terrorists. To see this from a member of Congress is disgusting, and it’s not American.”

Aqidi insists that this kind of open bigotry and hatred for our ally in Israel is a direct result of certain ‘Squad’ members being elected to Congress.

“This kind of hatred is new in American politics,” she claimed. “It was only 2018 when Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib came to Washington, and seeing things like this only shows how important it is that we send them packing in November.”

Aqidi has hammered Omar in the past as well, suggesting her campaign contrasts that of the Minnesota Democrat by being pro-American.

Tlaib, Omar Storm Out During Trump’s State of the Union Speech

Reps. Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and a host of other Democrat lawmakers stormed out of the President’s State of the Union speech Tuesday night.

It was one of several planned stunts by a bitter resistance party watching their recent impeachment efforts slip away.

Tlaib (D-MI), in an interview with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, claimed mention of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was what “triggered” her.

“I think, you know, even the mention of Brett Kavanaugh for me is a trigger,” she told Maddows’ gullible audience.

To nobody’s surprise, she then proceeded to slander Kavanaugh with a blatant lie.

“Just as a woman in America, the fact that he, you know, rightfully was accused and having an incredibly strong woman come before the public and the world and tell her story of sexual assault by this person that was appointed to the Supreme Court is just — I couldn’t stand still and not do anything about it, and I needed to walk away from that.”

Kavanaugh was never ‘rightfully accused’ and the numerous fake witnesses Democrats hauled before Congress in an attempt to stop his nomination were proven to be lying at worst, inconsistent at best with their accusations.

Kavanaugh should consider suing Tlaib for defamation.

Classless ‘Squad’

There is little doubt that the entire ‘Squad’ coordinated their little protest. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) announced prior to the State of the Union that they would be boycotting the speech.

“None of this is normal, and I will not legitimize it,” AOC insisted. “Consequently, I will not be attending the State of the Union.”

With that in mind, it was only a matter of time before Tlaib and Omar (D-MN) choreographed their stunt.

The Hill reported, “the seats for Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib were empty before the address was finished,” though they added Omar’s office did not comment.

Triggered

Several Democrats immediately took to social media to tweet about their brave and stunning protest, another indication that it was planned and coordinated.

“I just walked out of the #StateOfTheUnion,” Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) bragged. “I’ve had enough. It’s like watching professional wrestling. It’s all fake.”

Fake? He must be confusing the SOTU with the House impeachment scam.

“I just walked out of the #StateOfTheUnion,” Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-NJ) similarly conveyed. “I can’t stand a liar. This man’s presidency is a national tragedy.”

The ‘national tragedy’ is that we have intellectually deficient children like this serving as members of Congress.
