Rep. Ilhan Omar encourages fellow Muslims to ‘raise hell’ at fundraising event for terror-linked group
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has once again got herself into trouble with her remarks.
While appearing at an event for the terror-linked Council on America-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in California, the controversial congresswoman told her fellow Muslims to “raise hell” and “make people uncomfortable.”
Stoking the Fire
The criticism of Rep. Omar seems to be a one-way street.
She can say or do whatever she wants without repercussion from Democrats. Meanwhile, anyone openly criticizing her will have the hammer fall on them.
Fox News recently suspended Judge Jeanine Pirro for questioning Omar’s loyalty to this country.
They may want to rethink that after hearing the remarks made by Omar at the CAIR event over the weekend.
While addressing the crowd, Omar said: “I say raise hell, make people uncomfortable. Because, here’s the truth. For far too long, we have lived with discomfort of living as second class citizens, and frankly, I’m tired of it, and every single Muslim in this country should be tired of it.”
Like her fellow Democrats, Omar also took the opportunity to land some shots at Donald Trump.
“We finally have a leader, a world leader, in the White House who publicly says Islam hates us, who fuels hate against Muslims, who thinks…that it’s OK to speak about a faith and a whole community in a way that is dehumanizing, vilifying, and [who] doesn’t understand – or at least makes us think he doesn’t understand – the consequences his words might have,” she said.
That is a rather interesting statement coming from someone who has recently been accused of making anti-Semitic comments and who has refused to apologize for them.
The fact that Omar is trying to get people riled up over a false narrative should be very bothersome to Americans.
And it is not just her words of which people need to be wary. Omar has been chumming around with some very bad people, including most recently her co-speaker at the CAIR event, Hassan Shibly, who has openly supported terrorist organizations as well as publicly criticizing Israel.
While Democrats are trying to raise a flag over Trump, perhaps it’s Omar that everyone should really be worried about.
