In one of the more unnecessary and just plain stupid events in recent memory, there was a “Black Women in Defense of Ilhan Omar” shindig in Washington on Tuesday, and the guest of honor leaned into the event’s purpose by spouting off more anti-American, racist nonsense that no doubt electrified the progressives in attendance.
Instead of using the platform to carefully explain that she did not hate Jews, that she did not blame America for the downfall of Venezuela, and that she did not consider 9/11 to be a trivial event where “some people did some things,” Omar blasted President Trump for the rise of “Islamophobia” in the U.S.
No, Ilhan, we’re pretty sure that was sparked by that time some people did some things. You might want to look into it.
“When we talk about anti-Semitism, we must also talk about Islamophobia. It is two sides of the same coin of bigotry,” she said. “This is not going to be the country of the xenophobics. This is not going to be the country of white people. This is not going to be the country of the few. This is going to be the country of the many.”
Well, at least Omar admits she’s on one side of the ol’ bigotry coin. Wonder what she meant by “this is not going to be the country of white people,” though. That sounds sorta racist. Oh, right, you can say whatever you want about white people and it doesn’t count. Just like you can say anything you want about men, Christians, straight people, and any other group that the left hasn’t deemed “protected.”
And if you’re a far-left Muslim woman in a hijab, you can say anything you want about anyone, because, well, we just can’t understand the depth of her experiences, guys. It’s HER truth, y’all. You have to respect that. You WILL respect that – by force if necessary.
“The thing that upsets the occupant in the White House, his goons in the Republican Party, many of our colleagues in the Democratic Party, is that they can’t stand that a refugee, a black woman, an immigrant, a Muslim shows up in Congress thinking she’s equal to them,” Omar said.
Uh-huh. That’s just what it is, Ilhan. You’re just so damn persecuted.
Strangely enough, we didn’t see anything about this event on the front page of The Washington Post or The New York Times.
You think a “White Men in Defense of Steve King” event would be similarly ignored?
Oh right, right. Oppression and privilege and intersectionality, oh my.
