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.

POLL: Huge One Year Swing of Independent Voters Saying Government ‘Doing too Much’

Published

on

White House

What a difference a year can make. Particularly a year filled with government infringements and overreaching. In a Gallup poll released Thursday, findings show Americans have drastically shifted perspective on how much they want the government involved in their lives.

Gallup News tweeted the results along with the headline “Americans again favor a reduced government role in solving problems facing the country after supporting a more active government role last year.”

52% percent of those polled say the government is doing too much on issues that should be dealt with by businesses and individuals. Only 43% say the government needs to do more to address citizens’ problems.

The numbers have almost flopped from only one year ago when 54% said the government should be doing more, and 41% disagreed. The annual Gallup Governance survey was conducted September 1-17.

The Gallup Poll release stated “the shift toward favoring a more active government role in 2020 was seen among Democrats and independents but not Republicans — likely a response to the coronavirus pandemic and in particular to then-President Donald Trump’s approach to handling it.”

“Trump generally opposed government efforts designed to slow the spread of the virus, such as face mask requirements and business and school closures.” The poll found independent voters shifted their opinions greatly.

“The percentage of independents who said the government’s doing too many things jumped from 38% in 2020 to 57% this year. Republicans edged up from 74% to 80% and Democrats crept up from 13% to 18%.”

Gallup also highlighted the fact that 2020 was only the second time in the poll’s 29 years of asking about the role of government that at least half of Americans supported an active role for government. The first time occurred in 2001 in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Former Obama Ethics Chief Slams Psaki Over Dismissing Questions On Hunter Biden

Published

Walter Shaub

Walter Shaub, the former head of the federal government’s ethics office under President Barack Obama, slammed White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Wednesday in response to her dismissal of questions about whether the identity of buyers for Hunter Biden’s art would stay anonymous.

“At least five prints of Hunter Biden’s artwork have already been sold for $75,000 each and a team of lawyers is vetting potential patrons who plan to attend his upcoming gallery show in New York City — which has now been delayed until the spring,” The New York Post reported last week. “It’s unclear who purchased the reproductions — which cost a fraction of the top price of $500,000 for an original piece by President Biden’s scandal-scarred son — or if any more were sold after the LA show opened.”

During Tuesday’s press briefing, Psaki told a reporter asking about the anonymity of the buyers of Hunter Biden’s art, “I know this is your favorite topic, but it, again — it still is the purview of the gallerist. We still do not know and will not know who purchases any paintings. And the President remains proud of his son.”

 

“These are legitimate questions,” Shaub said in response to Psaki’s comments. “It’s disappointing to hear [Psaki] send a message that the WH thinks the public has no right to ask about ethics. After the last 4 years, these questions have never been more important. I know this isn’t a popular opinion, but this stuff matters.”

“There is no ethics program in the world that can be built around the head of state’s staff working with a dealer to keep the public in the dark about the identities of individuals who pay vast sums to the leader’s family member for subjectively priced items of no intrinsic value,” Shaub tweeted Wednesday. “If this were Trump, Xi [Jinping] or [Vladimir] Putin, you’d have no doubt whatsoever that this creates a vehicle for funneling cash to the first family in exchange for access or favors. Nor would you doubt that the appearance of monetizing the presidency was outrageous.”
