(Breitbart) – On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “All In,” Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) defended fellow Representative Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) from “efforts to distort and vilify and mischaracterize” her that are designed to “eliminate” Muslim voices from public dialogue.
Omar said, “I tell my sister, Rashida Tlaib, that her and I have the strength to endure any of the mischaracterization or efforts to distort and vilify and mischaracterize our message. And I think we are seeing what happens when people really see these kind of attacks for what they are. It is designed to silence, sideline, and sort of almost eliminate [the] public voice of Muslims from the public discourse. And so, I’m really excited that we have an opportunity to build alliances and push back and fight this attempt to marginalize our community’s voice.”
Flashback: Ilhan Omar: “This Is Not Going To Be The Country Of White People”
Rep. Ilhan Omar asserted “This is not going to be the country of white people” during a rally in DC yesterday.
“At this moment, the occupant of the White House and his allies are doing everything that they can to distance themselves and misinform the public from the monsters that they created that is [sic] terrorizing the Jewish community and the Muslim community,” the Congresswoman told the crowd, suggesting that the recent synagogue shootings were Trump’s fault despite both shooters explicitly expressing their opposition to Trump.
Omar went on to emphasize that she was a “refugee” and an “immigrant” from Somalia, which she said Trump would call a ‘shithole country’.
And who could argue with her? With its rampant violence, corruption and oppression of women, Somalia is an ideal destination, which is presumably why its tourist industry is thriving.
Asserting that America “was founded on the history of Native American genocide, on the backs of black slaves,” she went on to brazenly state, “This is not going to be the country of white people.”
Imagine if a white Republican had made a speech in which he or she asserted, “This is not going to be the country of black people.”
Their political career would be finished and their reputation would tainted for the rest of their life.
But since the last acceptable form of racism is racism against white people, Omar’s statement is a mere footnote.
Omar is still whining about Trump drawing attention to her absurd statement that 9/11 was “some people (who) did something” as if she is the victim.
For weeks, the media has helped Omar push the narrative that criticism of her is tantamount to inciting violence and far worse than her original ludicrous statement.
During the rally, her supporters chanted “hands off Ilhan,” attempting to further the idea that she should be immune from criticism just because she wears and Islamic headscarf and claims victimhood.
