It’s getting harder and harder to criticize Democrats, especially the new breed of hyper-leftist radical progressives in DC today. It’s not that they don’t do or say things that aren’t worthy of criticism. It’s that they say so many nutty, racist, or dangerous things, it’s getting hard to pick and choose which ones to focus on at any given time.
Take Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN), for example. In a very short period of time, she’s been able to rile up the Democratic base by saying and doing things that would have been deemed completely unacceptable not too long ago. But she as a shield that she invoked regularly, one that some believe is impenetrable. She’s an immigrant, a minority, a Muslim, and a woman. Her intersectionality score is practically unmatched in the eyes of leftists, making her impossible to rein in by Democratic leadership while scaring many on the right from going after her for fear of seeming bigoted in any one of a dozen ways.
But sometimes she goes so far, it’s impossible for any on the left to defend her or any on the right to ignore her. Today was one of those times.
While speaking at a Capitol Hill press conference at which she demanded the President censured for tweeting about her antisemitism, Omar said many things that should make people cringe. Arguably the most racist and hateful thing that she said was so confounding, I had to track down the video to confirm she actually said it.
“This is not going to be the country of the xenophobics. This is not going to be the country of white people.This is not going to be the country of the few. This is the country of the many. This is the country that was founded on the history of native American Genocide and on the backs of black slaves, but also, by immigrants.”
I included her quote in context so there’s no ambiguity. She said what she said and she meant it.
Imagine if a Republican said, “This is not going to be the country of black people.” That politician would be ousted within days. Where’s the outrage of Ilham Omar’s blatant racism? Democrats, your “leaders” are killing your party.
