The moment when progressives realize their inherent racism is showing so they delete their Tweet – that just happened to Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN). She was fast on the draw to delete it once an aid or someone else told her she was letting the world know she doesn’t believe the Latinx community can fairly handle a merit-based immigration system, but thankfully conservatives were ready with screenshots to expose her clear bigotry.
The freshman Congresswoman was parroting a Washington Post article that portrayed their perceptions of what motivates conservatives in lieu of actually acknowledging the validity of a merit-based immigration system. But instead of parroting them, she should have been the first to condemn such notions. Unfortunately, her own racist views got the better of her.
Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar (MN) just deleted this tweet where she appeared to suggest that Latinos can't measure up in a "merit-based" immigration system. pic.twitter.com/ak9EKVdN0i

She deleted the Tweet and replaced it with a quote from the article, passing off the racism as something someone else believed.
“Our research suggests that prejudice against Latinos is an important, if veiled, reason that some Americans advocate admitting primarily highly educated, highly skilled immigrants.”

But neither conservative commentator Michelle Malkin and Texas Senator Ted Cruz were going to let her off the hook.
So Ms. Smarty Pants @ilhanmn deleted her tweet, cuz she finally realized that in accusing the President of raaaaaaaaaaacism, she was sounding mighty raaaaaaaaaacist herself. pic.twitter.com/10ojMOpHl2

As the son of a Cuban immigrant whose Dad came to get a math degree & become a computer programmer, I’m troubled that Dems seem to believe Hispanic immigrants can’t qualify for skills-based legal immigration. Bringing in more scientists, engineers & doctors is good for US jobs. https://t.co/iugniZgJtL

The left is often forced to use the race card because they have nothing else in their toolbox to attack the common sense policies being proposed by the right. We see this happening at the border. We see it happening with gun control. We see it happening with the abortion issue. In every case where the left opposes a policy proposed by the right, there will be people like Omar who instinctively and immediately play the race card.
It’s time the bigotry of many on the left is exposed for what it is. Kudos to Ryan Saavedra, Michelle Malkin, and Ted Cruz for not letting Ilhan Omar get away with her racist slip. Those who play the race card most often are blind to their own bigotry.
