Ilhan Omar is one of the most controversial members of Congress.
It seems every week Omar is in the middle of another category five political hurricane.
And now Ilhan Omar told one lie about police that will put your jaw on the ground.
Omar appeared as a panelist at an event entitled “Five Reasons to #ProtectBlackDissent.”
Omar took the opportunity to launch into a racially-charged tirade claiming America was a racist and unjust nation from its very inception.
“From slavery to Jim Crow to redlining to mass incarceration to voter suppression, racism is part of the foundation of American power,” Omar raged.
Omar also called for the FBI and other law enforcement agencies to stop investigating violent black nationalist groups that promoted extremist hate and acts of domestic terrorism, ranting:
The reason for attacks and surveillance and secrecy is because [black activists] threaten the system that is built on the power of one race over another. There is no greater threat than a coalition of people working together to upend a system that is built on oppression.
This is why they conflate white nationalism — a legitimate terrorist threat responsible for countless acts of terrorism in our country – with peaceful movements organizing for their rights.
Our communities have been targeted, surveilled and undermined for far too long. Our government should not be sabotaging the First Amendment rights of peaceful protesters.
Omar’s call for law enforcement to back off of violent black nationalist groups comes as Democrats push to designate white nationalism as domestic terrorism.
While groups like the Ku Klux Klan would certainly qualify, that’s not where Omar would stop.
When those on the left – like Omar – speak of white nationalism they don’t mean neo-Nazis or bigots that march dressed up in white sheets.
To Omar and her fellow leftists, white nationalism means being pro-Life, pro-Second Amendment and anti-open borders.
