I had a discussion with Heroclitus and Will Readmore in another thread. I think the topic is worth a thread of its own. As Ilhan Omar is part of the squad which is celebrated by the left-wing mains stream media, its imo a typical example how most of the mainstream leftists either ignore or even align themselves with Islamists. My arguments for my point of view: Ilhan Omar denies the genocide of the Armenian people by the Ottoman Empire: Ilhan Omar playing down 9/11 Ilhan Omar spreading anti-Semite conspiracy theories "its all about the Bejamins" By the way, she later on, she was apologizing by stating, she wasnt aware that there were racist stereotypes about Jews concerning them and money Sounds very plausible. Ilhan Omar attacking an Indian reporter for criticizing militant Islamists in Kasmere I cannot understand how anyone could deny the clear pattern in her statements and positions. Whereever Islamist violence occurs her positions are apologetic. Thats my opinion, everyone is welcome to write down his or her point of view.
