The Progressive world is proud of the Muslim women who made it to Congress, like Ilhan Omar! But do they know who they are really cheering for?
Ilhan Omar is a Somali American politician from Minnesota. It seems like a wonderful concept that a Muslim woman is making such an impact in American politics. Progressives love that idea. The problem is that Omar’s view are far from what an American politician should believe in. She hates Israel and the Jews. She tweeted, “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.” She is just plain anti-semitic. The fact that she is an AMERICAN politician is ridiculous! America is Israel’s closest ally. And she should not be involved in any decision making for the country.
Why are people allowing the normalization of Jew-hatred? Why are people like Ilhan Omar being elected to Congress?
The New York Times Doesn’t Care
Of course, The New York Times defends people like Ilhan Omar. They will not admit that she is a vile anti-Semite. Not only will they not admit it, but they even said that people who criticize her are “bigots.” But as this video discusses, her critics mean nothing personal. It is about Omar’s radical views. It is about what she says. And The New York Times is whitewashing this.
How can The New York Times defend Democrats so much to the point that even when there is such blatant antisemitism, they still downplay it? Why can’t they just admit when a member of the Democratic party is so, so wrong? It is actually quite frightening.
