Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., blamed President Trump Tuesday for creating racist “monsters” just days after the shooting at the Chabad of Poway Synagogue in California.
“The occupant of the White House, as my sister Ayanna likes to call him, and his allies are doing everything that they can to distance themselves and misinform the public from the monsters that they created that is terrorizing the Jewish community and the Muslim community,” Omar said Tuesday, referencing Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., at a “Black Women in Defense of Ilhan Omar” gathering.
Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., wrote in 2017 that America was founded by genocide and our foreign policy smacks of “neocolonialism.”
“We must confront that our nation was founded by genocide and we maintain global power through neocolonialism,” Omar said in a tweet linking a Time article titled “ Unity Will Take Generations” she wrote about the August 2017 white supremacist rally Charlottesville, Va.
Omar elaborated on her comment more in the article.
“We must confront that our nation was founded by the genocide of indigenous people and on the backs of slaves, that we maintain global power with the tenor of neocolonialism,” she said.
The White House has it’s political and PR game revved up and in good shape. It’s gotten some scandals thrown right into its plate, and it won’t get out of attack mode.
President Trump Tuesday called Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar’s apology for allegedly anti-Semitic remarks “lame,” saying she should resign from Congress or at least her post of the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
This follows multiple attacks by Trump on Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, who advocates the latest possible late-term abortions and who was shocked – shocked, I tell you – to find that someone in blackface and someone in a Ku outfit have been sitting on his medical school yearbook page for three and half decades.
Northam and other scandal-plagued Democratic leaders in Virginia – the attorney admits appearing in blackface and the Lieutenant governor is accused of multiple sexual assaults – plan to be the gifts that keep on giving, refusing in unison to resign.
The press will soon forget about it, of course, because they’re politicians involved are Democrats. But Trump won’t.
And the fun for Republicans with people like Omar is just beginning.
