Ilhan Omar is a democrat so the world is already against her. She’s also a woman in politics so add another layer of hate people have for her before she even opens her mouth. AND she’s openly Muslim?? There is a target on her back larger than the amount of entitlement that has put Meghan McCain in a position to comment on her in front of actual working cameras.
Most people in Omar’s position would walk on eggshells or hide in the background but Ilhan Omar didn’t run for congress to sit quietly. In fact, she’s doing the exact opposite as she is currently under fire after questioning America’s relationship with Israel.
She said that our political leader’s support for Israel is ‘all about the benjamins’ basically insinuating that the Isreal lobby is lining the pockets of political leaders.
This isn’t the most eggregious example of anti-semitism in the world but everyone in congress is certainly acting like it as the Dems immediately through homegirl under the bus and began working on legislation that would condemn anti-semitism.
Now before I scream about how this is absolute bullshit, I should quickly point out that although Omar’s comments weren’t evil or malicious in any way, it was certainly dogwhislting. When you use Jewish people and money in the same sentence then you’re on the thinnest of thin ice.
That being said, GET THE FUUUUUUUUUCK OUT OF HERE WITH THIS GARBAGE.
Let’s just call this like it is: the old white people that run this country don’t like the brown Muslim girl who has thoughts that are new and different and they are doing whatever it takes to get homegirl out of the paint before she fucks around and actually makes ‘changes’: Congress’s biggest fear.
Donald Trump is president because white people who hate Jews ran to the polls to elect their white nationalist leader. Trump surrounded himself with people like Steve Bannon, who openly hates minorites.
I mean shit, Steve Scalise, the third-ranking House Republican Leader has described himself as ‘David Duke without the baggage‘. One of the leaders of the House compared himself as the leader of the KKK but yea let’s totally focus on this woman who is simply questioning the amount of influence that lobby groups have over legislation. SHE’S the one we must stop.
Enter Meghan McCain.
I don’t think we should be politicizing [anti-Semitism] on either side because, as we know, if it’s a tiki torch person in Charlottesville saying ‘Jews will not replace us’ or…these more dog-whistle moments, that in my view, Ilhan Omar is doing.
That’s what Meghan McCain said about Ilhan Omar’s comments. She compared her to the LITERAL NAZIS in Charlottesville that were gathered in the name of white’s. A woman was murdered in Charlottesville while weirdos with Macklemore haircuts chanted ‘Jews will not replace us’. Trump then followed that up by saying ‘they were very fine people’.
But nope, Omar is the anti-semetic that we need to create laws to silence.
Meghan McCain would go on to CRY while explaining how much this all hurts her because she like, knows Jewish people or something:
“I take this very personally. I don’t have family that is Jewish but Joe Lieberman and Hadassah Lieberman are my family. I take the hate crimes raising in this country incredibly seriously, and I think what’s happening in Europe is really scary and I’m sorry if I’m getting emotional.”
We understand what’s happening here, right? We’re all on the same page?
Meghan McCain, like most conservatives, is using Omar’s comments as an attempt to move the discussion away from what has been circulating most recently, the new Green Deal and wealthy inequality. How can we talk about taxing the rich at a time like this?! Jewish people are under attack!!
And the democrats are doing what they also do: the fucking least.
They are cowards who are afraid of actually taking on the right so they think creating this legislation against hate speech is going to make them look like the good guys.
Ilhan Omar has found herself in the perfect storm between the left that has self-identified themselves by their desire to ‘cancel’ anyone who makes a verbal misstep and the right, who has built a base of attacking and scapegoating all immigrants and Muslims.
But THANKFULLY, we have Meghan McCain on the View every morning to make sense of it all. Where would we be without our fearless thought leader, Meghan?
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you wouldn’t mind throwing sending Meghan McCain into the sun. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Follow on Instagram so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
