Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar is back in the headlines.
And once again, she is at the center of controversy.
That’s because she just told Muslims to do something that crossed the line.
Ilhan Omar addressed a crowd of supporters over the weekend and attacked Donald Trump as an Islamophobic bigot.
Omar claimed Trump was to blame for the New Zealand Mosque shooting and that Muslims needed “raise hell” and “make people uncomfortable” in order to fight for their rights.
The Washington Times reports:
As hundreds of pro-Israel protesters rallied outside, Ms. Omar said U.S. Muslims should confront discrimination in her keynote speech at a fundraiser hosted by the Council on American-Islamic Relations of Greater Los Angeles in Woodland Hills, California.
“So, to me, I say raise hell. Make people uncomfortable,” Ms. Omar said as the crowd cheered. “Because here’s the truth, here’s the truth: Far too long we have lived with the discomfort of being a second-class citizen and frankly I’m tired of it, and every single Muslim in this country should be tired of it.”
Ms. Omar, whose speech was livestreamed by Fox News and posted on CAIR’s Facebook page, also intimated that President Trump was to blame in part for the horrific March 15 shooting at a mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand, which left 50 dead.
“The reason I think many of us knew this was going to get worse is we finally have a leader, a world leader in the White House, who publicly says that Islam hates us, who fuels hate against Muslims,” she said.
Omar is clearly lying.
Trump had nothing to do with the New Zealand Mosque shooting.
The killer was a madman that claimed he wanted to spark political chaos.
But Democrats always want to exploit mass shootings to rile up their base and throw their political opponents back on their heels.
And that is exactly what Ilhan Omar tried to do with these disgusting comments.
