It’s no surprise to see Rep. Ilhan Omar (Democrat-Muslim-from Minnesota) speaking at a Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) fundraiser.
I’ve read numerous reports over the past decade that linked CAIR or CAIR officials/members to radical Islamic extremists and even helping to finance Islamic extremists in the Middle East, although I have to say that CAIR denies the reports, some of which describe CAIR as an enemy to the United States.
A month ago, I reported that before being a member of Congress, Omar had traveled to socialist Latin and South American countries with a socialist organization here in the that opposes most everything America stands for.
In her speech to fellow Muslims, she stated that President Donald Trump was responsible for the mass shootings at the mosques in New Zealand.
Breitbart – Ilhan Omar, in CAIR Speech, Suggests Trump to Blame for New Zealand Terror – Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) spoke to a Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) fundraiser in Woodland Hills, California, on Saturday evening and suggested that President Donald Trump was to blame for the recent terror attack against Muslims in New Zealand.
According to audio obtained by The Gateway Pundit, Omar said:
The reason I think that many of us knew that this was going to get worse is that we finally have a leader, a world leader in the White House, who publicly says Islam hates us; who fuels hate against Muslims; who thinks it is okay, that it’s OK to speak about a faith and a whole community in a way that is dehumanizing, vilifying, and doesn’t understand, or at least makes us want to think that he doesn’t understand, the consequences that his words might have.
Some people, like me, know that he understands the consequences. He knows that there are people that he can influence to threaten our lives, to diminish our presence, but what we know and what Islam teaches us — and what I always say, is that “Love Trumps Hate.” …
Notice the hatred driven hypocrisy of Omar when she blames Trump for the New Zealand shootings.
Is that any different than blaming all Muslims for ISIS or al Qaeda, Hamas, Palestinian Liberation Army or the Taliban?
Muslims like Omar refer to that type of characterization as being hate speech, so why isn’t her accusations against Trump not characterized the same way?
