Rep. Ilhan Omar: Criticisms of Tlaib Part Of Efforts To “Eliminate The Public Voice Of Muslims’


Ilhan Omar defends Rashida Tlaib over controversial remarks about the Holocaust, insisting that the backlash is “designed” to “silence” Muslim voices.

“I think we are seeing what happens when people really see these kinds of attacks for what they are. It is designed to silence, sideline, and sort of almost eliminate [the] public voice of Muslims from the public discourse.” 

Both Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib fled the cesspools they lived it to come to this country, and are now trying to turn this country into the same cesspools that they fled.

MSNBC host Chris Hayes introduced his interview of Omar Tuesday night by complaining Republicans were in a “sustained round of bad-faith attacks” against Tlaib, who said last week that she was calmed by the fact that Arabs provided a safe haven for Jews after the Holocaust and simultaneously mourned that this was forced on them. The statement was historically inaccurate:

“There’s always kind of a calming feeling, I tell folks, when I think of the Holocaust, and the tragedy of the Holocaust, and the fact that it was my ancestors—Palestinians—who lost their land and some lost their lives, their livelihood, their human dignity, their existence in many ways, have been wiped out, and some people’s passports,” said Tlaib, the first Palestinian-American woman elected to Congress. “And, just all of it was in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews, post-the Holocaust, post-the tragedy and the horrific persecution of Jews across the world at that time. And, I love the fact that it was my ancestors that provided that, right, in many ways, but they did it in a way that took their human dignity away and it was forced on them.” More

It’s refreshing to see the Democrat party no longer hiding who and what they are… Hateful, intolerant, racist. & antisemitic.

Are these freshmen going to be the nail in the coffin for Democrats in 2020?
