Rep. Ilhan Omar Makes Sure ‘White’ Suspect’s Race is Front and Center

Published

Rep. Ilhan Omar

Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is facing backlash after her racially divisive tweet following the horrendous Boulder, Colorado shooting massacre. Posted within 24 hours after the man now identified as Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa killed 10 people, Omar had this to say:

“The shooter’s race or ethnicity seems front and center when they aren’t white. Otherwise, it’s just a mentally ill young man having a bad day. Narratives drive our responses to awful crimes committed against innocent people, pay attention to these responses and who is targeted” Omar posted to her Twitter account.

Before discussing her tweet further, let’s not forget that Omar is the very person that undermined the terrorist attacks committed on September 11, 2001 when she passed it off as “some people did something.” She went even further as to say the Council on Islamic Relations (CAIR) was founded because after “some people did something,” Omar and others determined “that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.”

So, while Omar cries discrimination, it is she who is perpetuating the racial rhetoric. Omar brought up the race of the Atlanta mass shooting suspect Robert Aaron Long, who is white. In her tweet, the Congresswoman wrote it isn’t “hard to understand why it’s so normalized for law enforcement to protect the humanity of white mass murderers and their willingness to continually make excuses for them.”

Washington Free Beacon executive editor Brent Scher rebuked Omar for her tweet, saying the Boulder “shooter’s race and ethnicity was front and center yesterday when we didn’t even know what it was and just assumed it was white.” It couldn’t be more obvious that it is Ilhan Omar who gets to determine whether or not one’s “race” should be mentioned.

If the criminal is white, that fact must be mentioned and everyone else must be chastised for protecting “the humanity of white mass murderers.” If the criminal is not white, however, they shall be referred to as “some people” who “did something” and then an organization must be founded to protect their civil liberties.

      Not everyone in Minnesota thinks DC needs someone representing the values and hatred of Somalia. The only thing she likes about the USA is that it’s possible to be anti-American and still win an election.

    Right, Ilhan. The entire twitterverse was on fire with all the leftists saying ‘it’s ALWAYS a white guy’. Gotta hurt that it’s a Syrian Muslim extremist, huh?
    Using a tool leftists have never tried (research with an unbiased source),from 2002-2018, white mass shooters were 54% of the total. Whites are 62% of the population. Shooters correspond to racial/ethnic populations.
    WE can always tell when a criminal’s race is not given. It’s definitely NOT a white guy.

      The people of Minnesota should be ashamed of themselves for voting a racist representative such as Ilhan Omar into this position! She is a racist and she is a disgrace!

    Also, CAIR was founded in 1994, seven years before “some people did somthing”. Things like truth seem unknown to her.

‘Every Word Of This Is False’: Ted Cruz Factchecks Ilhan Omar’s Attack On Coach Kennedy Prayer Case

Published

Rep. Ilhan Omar

On Monday night, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) factchecked Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) after she made multiple false claims about the Supreme Court ruling in Kennedy v. Bremerton School District, in which the Court ruled 6-3 that a public high school football coach in Washington state had his First Amendment rights violated when he was punished by his school district for praying on the field after games where students could see.

As previously reported, “In 2008, high school football coach Joseph Kennedy began a tradition of praying at midfield after each game. Over time, his players and even members of the opposing team began to join him. In September 2015, a school administrator addressed the matter with Kennedy after an opposing team complained and the coach briefly stopped his prayers.”

“On October 14, 2015, Kennedy told the school district that he was planning on resuming his prayer tradition at the next game. The school district told the coach that his prayers violated the district’s policy, but Kennedy continued to pray at the next two games. The school district subsequently placed him on administrative leave, banned him from participating in the football program, and refused to renew his contract for the following season. Kennedy took the issue to federal district court, arguing that the school district had violated his First Amendment rights,” the report added.

In response to the Supreme Court ruling in favor of Kennedy, Omar tweeted, “The Supreme Court just ruled that public school teachers can pressure students to join in prayer at public school events but can also retaliate against those that don’t join in. Religious freedom is dead in America.”

“Every word of this is false,” Cruz responded.

Omar’s claim that the Supreme Court’s decision allowed to teachers to “pressure students to join prayer” is false. The Court’s ruling just protected Coach Kennedy’s religious freedom to pray publicly.

Omar was also incorrect in claiming that there would be retaliation against students who did not join Kennedy in prayer – the coach’s tradition of praying after games began with him praying alone at midfield after football games. Kennedy’s school district even noted that Kennedy had “not actively encouraged, or required, participation.”

Additionally, in contrast to Omar’s claim that “religious freedom is dead in America,” the Supreme Court ruling actually strengthened protections of religious freedom.

Writing for the majority opinion, Justice Neil Gorsuch explained, “Respect for religious expressions is indispensable to life in a free and diverse Republic—whether those expressions take place in a sanctuary or on a field, and whether they manifest through the spoken word or a bowed head.”

“Here, a government entity sought to punish an individual for engaging in a brief, quiet, personal religious observance doubly protected by the Free Exercise and Free Speech Clauses of the First Amendment,” Gorsuch added. “And the only meaningful justification the government offered for its reprisal rested on a mistaken view that it had a duty to ferret out and suppress religious observances even as it allows comparable secular speech. The Constitution neither mandates nor tolerates that kind of discrimination. Mr. Kennedy is entitled to summary judgment on his First Amendment claims.”
