Democratic Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar’s has called for advertisers to boycott Tucker Carlson for allowing him to have a “nightly platform to white supremacist rhetoric.” Can you imagine just 10 years ago any politician calling for a boycott or a shutdown of the First Amendment by reporters, broadcasters, or journalists for investigative work? This is the strategy, the question is: Are we going to fight back and support real Journalists or give in to the race-baiting attacks of politicians backed into a corner by their own actions?
According to Real Clear Politics, “Carlson said immigrants don’t come to America with an animus for the country and that someone taught her to hate America.”
“Our country rescued Ilhan Omar from the single worst place on earth, we didn’t do it to get rich, in fact it cost us money. We did it because we are kind people,” the Fox News host said of the Democratic Congresswoman. “How did Ilhan Omar respond to the remarkable gift we gave her? She scolded us and called us names. She showed us with contempt. It’s infuriating but more than that, it’s also ominous.”
He continued, “Omar may be from another country but she learned young that crying racism pays. The bigger question is, who taught her that? She didn’t arrive from a Kenyan refugee camp announcing people as bigots for a political campaign. She wasn’t always a professional victim. That is learned behavior.”
“In some ways, the real villain in the Ilhan Omar story isn’t Omar, it is a group of our fellow Americans,” Carlson went on. “Our cultural gatekeepers who stoke the resentment of new arrivals and turn them into grievance mongers like Ilhan Omar. The left did that to her, and to us. Blame them first.”
I agree with Carlson. It is America’s fault for brainwashing this immigrant instead of assimilating her into the greatness of America – who rescued her an her family, by the way, from a refugee camp in Africa.
from Carlson’s monologue:
Like many of you, we’ve been watching with amazement and alarm as the leaders of the Democratic Party, day after day, attack the country they say they want to govern.
It’s remarkable, and a very new development. Just a few years ago, even the most liberal Democrats in Congress felt obligated to say patriotic things about America. They may not have felt it, but they said it. Now, it’s routine to hear Democratic presidential candidates question the basic legitimacy of the United States.
The United States admits more immigrants more than any other country on Earth, more than a million every year. The Democratic Party demand we increase that by and admit far more. OK, Americans like immigrants, but immigrants have got to like us back.
Of course, the left went nuts – but that’s redundant. That is how they operate.
Of course, they called us racist. On one level that is amusing given how absurd the charges. This show, more than any other show on television, has taken an aggressive position in favor of color-blind equality and against racism, particularly the casual racism of the modern left.
We despise the current habit of judging people on the basis of their skin color. It’s wrong. We see that virtually every night. Racist? Now, we are against racism adamantly. Omar consistently puts her own race at the center of the conversation, but to us, it’s irrelevant.
Ayaan Hirsi Ali would, by the standard of identity politics, seem to have everything in common with Ilhan Omar. She was born in Somalia, moved to Kenya and eventually came to this country. Unlike Omar, she loves and cares about the United States. She believes this country is superior to the country she came from.
For saying that, the left despises her. Two Somali immigrants, one among the most impressive people in America. The other, among the least.
It’s not about race. But, of course, Omar and her friends already know that. Nothing they say on the subject of race is sincere. It’s all the hustle designed to get them what they want. Omar has made a career of denouncing anyone and anything in her way as racist. That would include virtually all of her political and personal opponents. It includes even inanimate objects like the border wall, that’s racist. So was the Congress, so is the entire state of North Dakota, she once tweeted.
Omar may be from another country but she learned young that crying racism pays. The bigger question is, who taught her that? She didn’t arrive from a Kenyan refugee camp announcing people as bigots for a political campaign. She wasn’t always a professional victim. That is learned behavior.
Importantly, she learned it here. In some ways, the real villain in the Ilhan Omar story isn’t Omar, it is a group of our fellow Americans. Our cultural gatekeepers who stoke the resentment of new arrivals and turn them into grievance mongers like Ilhan Omar.
Democratic Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar has been criticized for months now for her bigoted, anti-Semitic and anti-American Tweets and speeches. Even when she is forced to apologize, her words seem to come out with an undertone that basically says, “I’m sorry I hate Jews.” This one takes the cake, however – she says Stephen Miller, a Jewish Trump White House adviser, is a “white nationalist” and slammed him for having too much influence on U.S. policy.
Stephen Miller is a white nationalist. The fact that he still has influence on policy and political appointments is an outrage. https://t.co/7NyMDgojd7

Donald Trump Jr. wrote in a tweet, “I see that the head of the Farrakhan Fan Club, @IlhanMN, took a short break from spewing her usual anti-semitic bigotry today to accuse a Jewish man of being a ‘white nationalist’ because she apparently has no shame.”
But Junior wasn’t the only one condemning Omar for her ridiculous claim:
A yes, Judaism, the first sign of Nazi white supremacy. Very smart, @IlhanMN

“The event at the fourth annual Valley Banquet, titled “Advancing Justice: Empowering Valley Muslims,” was sold out and closed to the public. The Los Angeles Police Department told City News Service that it had an unspecified number of officers working the event.
“We don’t disclose the numbers,” Officer Sal Ramirez told City News Service.
Omar, 37, is from Somalia and came to the U.S. with her family in 1995. She has faced a storm of criticism from pro-Israel politicians and groups after her February tweet that said “It’s all about the Benjamins baby,” in reference to the support that some U.S. lawmakers have offered to Israel.
