The Unmitigated Gall of Ilhan Omar

Ilhan-Omar

Rep. Ilhan Omar is demanding that Congress censure a colleague over offensive remarks. This is a real demand happening right now, and reporters write about her demands without peppering their prose with incredulous exclamation marks.

House progressives, in fact, are reportedly planning to introduce a resolution that would strip Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert of committee assignments over her stupid and bigoted joke about Omar.

“I have had a conversation with the speaker, and I’m very confident that she will take decisive action next week,” Omar had the temerity to tell CNN’s Jake Tapper on Dec. 5. The same congresswoman, who claimed criticism about her smear that Jews were brainwashing the world was “all about the Benjamins,” says it’s “important for us to say this kind of language, this kind of hate cannot be condoned by the House of Representatives, and we should punish and sanction Boebert by stripping her of her committees, by rebuking her language, by doing everything that we can to send a clear and decisive message to the American public that if the Republicans are not going to be adults and condemn this, that we are going to do that.”

First of all, Democrats have already created a new norm, stripping Reps. Paul Gosar and the Rothschild-laser-curious Marjorie Taylor Greene of committee seats. They probably deserved this. And if Republicans have any spine, they will, perhaps as early as 2022, begin throwing Jew-baiting progressives and conspiracy theorists such as Omar and Rep. Rashida Tlaib off their perches, as well. Democrats struggle to comprehend that they won’t be in perpetual power.

“Inaction is to be complicit in Islamaphobia,” adds Rep. Ayanna Pressley, herself a font of ugly racial-identity-obsessed notions. If so, is the House of Representatives complicit in anti-Semitism when it fails to ensure a member who tells us she gets a “calming feeling” when thinking about the Holocaust’s aftermath? Are Democrats complicit when they fail to condemn a colleague who says the people “behind the curtain” who want to stop a “free Palestine” are the “same people” who exploit “regular Americans” for “their profit”? Jews, after all, are the most targeted religious group in hate crimes, and it’s not even a close contest.

You may recall a few years back when the Democratic Party-backed out of censuring Omar for her numerous repulsive comments because of “fierce backlash” from the Congressional Black Caucus (a group whose members have held strategy sessions and meetings with Louis Farrakhan, because the normalization of certain kinds of hatreds is nothing new on the left). Censures and resolutions are almost always useless exercises in political theater. But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi showed a special kind of creativity when she decided to reprimand Omar with a watered-down, platitudinous “anti-hate” resolution, which mentions Alfred Dreyfus, Leo Frank, Henry Ford, and “anti-Muslim bigotry,” but not Omar.

Parties are reluctant to censure their own members, no matter how odious the words, as that sort of thing telegraphs weakness and upsets the base — and the opposition likes to exaggerate the influence of backbenchers. Take the Washington Post’s partisan pseudo journalist Greg Sargent, who absurdly argues that Boebert et al portend emerging Republican attitudes. Certainly, the faction is not irrelevant, but it’s wishful thinking to say that they will “continue gaining adherents and intensity.” Not a single one of these Republicans is driving any serious policy initiatives. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy certainly isn’t posing with Greene and Boebert on the cover of Rolling Stone in their “Women Shaping the Future” issue.

The Squad, who are surely “gaining adherents and intensity” as moderate Democrats shed seats due to the party’s progressive turn, already have outsized power. They can stop bills right now. A few months ago, they nearly sunk funding for Israel’s defensive Iron Dome system, perhaps the only spending that Squad members passionately oppose. (Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was in tears because she had abstained from cutting off spending on a system that saves thousands of lives.) The Biden administration already uses Ocasio-Cortez’s branding for its climate change agenda, and virtually every Democrat defends the administration’s every move. These are consequential politicians treated with reverence by the press.

That said, the cynical effort to focus on the most absurd members of the opposition party is nothing new — especially as a means of deflecting attention away from your own problems. But when your champion is one of the most repugnant voices in Washington, the effort is transparently preposterous.

To paraphrase what we learned in high school Latin class, “All [Gall] is divided into [four] parts”.

(In this case, Rep. Ilhan Omar, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rep. Rashida Tlaib, and Rep. Ayanna Pressley.)

Whatever happened to the Somalian style of politics Omar used in her district to get fraudulently reelected again & again, yet she is still there spilling forth her venom against the Jews or in this case, against the patriotic Rep. Lauren Boebert… This bigot, i.e. Omar along with her other ( 3 ) anti-American cohorts, aka the Squad should have been sent packing long before now…
No good will ever come from Omar in particular along with her brother husband…
The SQUAD as a whole need to be REMOVED from office, permanently…

I oppose the extreme left and extreme right as both extremes do not seek compromise or unity in the middle but are narcissists that “cannot do wrong” or just ignore evil. Maybe a bit of narcissism is required of great leaders.

Democrats want to be the only people allowed to say nasty things about others.

If you say nasty things about democrats, you commit a crime and are punished.

How about some Ilhan Omar quotable quotes:

“We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban, I asked [Secretary of State Antony Blinken] where people are supposed to go for justice.”

The U.S. was “underwriting crimes against humanity” through support for Israel and that there needed to be “accountability for every war crime committed.”

“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. CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something, and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties,”

I could go on, but I think its pretty obvious the sanctions for speaking out and offending others is one-side only….and it ain’t her side.

There is good reason for we U.S. citizens to be “Islamaphobic”. They murdered 3,000 citizens on 9/11/2001 and in my state of Arizona there have been 2 cases of Muslim fathers killing their own daughters for not obeying Sharia law. It is sickening that we have a militant Muslin such as she in our government making laws for our country.

Omar is a despicable human being; fraud and cheating are her best skills. She needs to go and fast. The woman doesn’t belong in any position of influence, let alone hold a seat in OUR Congress. What the Hell is the matter with Minnesota voters? Oh yes, Obama imported the Somalis who supported this demon.

I’m embarrassed to say that Omar is the representative in the district that I live in and why is she? We live in an upscale suburb, however, unfortunately, Minneapolis is also included in our district. I never voted for her, nor would I. The Minneapolis district is home to all the somali refugees that were imported into Minnesota, thanks to all the democrats that waived them in with open arms. Thus, that is how she, shall we say, cheated her way in, thru her family of somali friends. She is an embarrassment and a disgrace to our country. She needs to be removed for what she has said and done. Shameful.

Omar, has been known to fowl mouth other groups and she expects/demands forgiveness if she only says ‘sorry’. Yet, if another member of the gov’t mention anything that may appear to resemble herself ‘Omar’ then she feels she it superior and may make demands to have the other person demonized. I say shame on Omar.

Omar? was that incest with her brother or did she just choose to be his whore? Now she wants to be in the position of condemning others? She ought to be back where she came from sucking water out of a mud hole taking sandy cortez and the other two with her, but hen what more can one really expect out of this cheap jezebel? Before she went to congress no one was allowed to wear any type of head covering period. So what changed? I’m looking forward to 2022 when we can take back control of both houses and get a muzzle on this side show in the circus.

“An Islamic Woman of Color” protected by the MSM and allowed to spew all kinds of trash is offended by so many things and expects that everyone else should join her? Her supporters are having a political orgasm over her MSM recognition. She got here because of the largess of this country and has the nerve to trash this place. GARBAGE CRAP UNGRATEFUL PERSON. This comment will not see the light of day.

Lauren Boebert is a God fearing real American. Salt of the earth American. Who knows what this thing is or stands for. ILL-HAM appears to be an American in name only, like a lot of Democrats. How the heck did she get elected to Congress with what she has said, what she stands for, and things she has done? She is another reason for REAL immigration law enforcement/reform…..to protect our democracy, our way of life, our liberty, and the social fabric of our nation. Unfortunately it appears to be too late any for that.

Mentally Ilhan Omar is a reprobate. Why is she in this country? Refugee, married her brother to defraud immigration, given an education on US Taxpayer dime, she shows her gratitude by trying to destroy the United States from within our Congress.

She should be investigated for her apparent felonies, stripped of her citizenship and deported back to Kenya or her home spawning ground Somalia.

We’ve all been dropped down the rabbit hole. Queen of Hearts is running congress, the Chesser Cat is running the senate, and the Mad Hatter is in the White House. If this country full of SHEEP allows this to continue, start looking for Texas to succeed and throw the BETO’s , Sheila Jackson Lee’s, and all the rest of the race baiters out when we do.
WE have allowed this to happen by doing away with standards. The ‘MSM’ no longer broadcasts news – it’s now all propaganda. The rule of law only applies to conservative thought. AND the Emperor has a new suit, that he can’t show in public. I’m actually embarrassed to say I’m an American due to the guilt by association of the former vice president usurping the oval office.

I heard Rep. Boebert relate the particulars of the incident on The Dan Binging Show. I thought her comment was funny, and take exception to David Harsanyi’s characterization of Ms. Boebert’s comment as stupid, and his call for the Republican leadership to grow a spine and strip her of her House assignments. Ms. Boebert, of her own volition called raghead Omar and apologized for her comment. Omar refused to accept the apology, and is pushing things beyond the bounds of decency.
Perhaps the Republican leaders should grow a spine and investigate Omar’s marriage to her brother and the subsequent lying that ensued on her citizenship application.

The question is who in our government is behind the wholesale importation of hostile third world moslems who multiply quickly. A teacher friend told me how she was regularly disrespected by the young male versions of omar. People in our state department are behind this and behind their specific geographic placement.

“DO WHAT YOU SAID YOU WOULD DO..FIGHTING FOR FREEDOM IN THE SWAMP” just published by Congressman Jim Jordan of Ohio.

YOU NEED TO READ THIS..ITS REALLY WORTH YOUR ATTENTION & TIME…

“DO WHAT YOU SAID YOU WOULD DO: Fighting for freedom in the swamp.
New book by JIM JORDAN, Congressman from OHIO and member of HOUSE FREEDOM CAUCUS   

MISSION STATEMENT…THE HOUSE FREEDOM CAUCUS GIVES VOICE TO COUNTLESS AMERICANS WHO FEEL WASHINGTON DOESN’T REPRESENT THEM”.

Explains the failure of both Republicans & Democrats to do what they promised…good explanation of those failures by the House & Congress and the steps necessary to successfully pass their promises.

If you’ve watched any sessions..Jim has been noted by the media that he never wears a jacket…what he does is more important..he has stood up and defended so much for all of us. If you can, donate to keep him in office.

A very short list of his record:
100% Conservative Score on annual ACU (American Conservative Union) Ratings of Congress: 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 (longest running perfect record of any current Member of Congress).
Defender of Economic Freedom Award: 2008-2015 (Lifetime Rating of 98%).
Taxpayers’ Friend “A” Rating: 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013
– Guardian of Small Business: 2005, 110th, 111th, 112th, 113th Congress
National Tax Limitation Committee

Jordan is a fiscal conservative who believes that families and taxpayers, rather than government, know best how to make decisions with their money. Throughout his career, Jim Jordan has led the fight against tax hikes, including those proposed by his own political party. He believes that cutting taxes and letting families keep more of what they earn helps build strong communities and a vibrant economy.

In Congress, Jordan has also emerged as a prominent defender of the taxpayer’s pocketbook through his work on spending issues. In 2009, he introduced the only balanced budget alternative to President Obama’s budget. In the 112th Congress, Jordan served as Chairman of the House Republican Study Committee, the largest caucus of conservatives, advancing conservative ideas and solutions on Capitol Hill. In the 114th Congress, Jordan helped found the House Freedom Caucus, and served as its first Chairman.

Jordan has been an advocate of the taxpayer, looking for waste, fraud and abuse in the federal government. He serves as the Ranking Member on the House Judiciary Committee and on the House Oversight Committee.

As one of the most conservative members of Congress, his efforts have earned him recognition from Citizens against Government Waste, Family Research Council, Americans for Tax Reform’s Friend of the Taxpayer Award and the 2012 Weyrich Award for “National Legislator of the Year.”

I’m sorry but I am irritated by this. When was Adam Schiff criticized by Congress for promoting a two-year false assertion of Russian collusion against President Trump? When was Nancy Pelosi criticized for tearing up a State of the Nation speech in front of the entire world? When was anyone in the democrat party criticized for their outrageous actions – their ant-Semitism – marrying their brother – declaring the police the enemy of the people? The Republicans need to grow a spine and treat their democrat colleagues like the democrats treat the Republicans when in power. There are two standards of behavior in Congress. Let’s all do the democrat one and forget the morality followed by the GOP.
