Trump is devolving the Presidency into levels of pure racism. His attacks on Rep Omar is an act of pure unadulterated racism that will lead to deaths.
Rep Ilhan Omar, has already been targeted by a radical republican terrorist, has now got every republican terrorist targeting her. Trump has done this supposedly in response to Rep Omar’s remarks at a CAIR banquet.
On March 23, at a dinner hosted by the Council on American-Islamic Relations, (CAIR) Rep Omar made the following comments. They were made one week after another act of right wing terror in Christchurch, New Zealand.
For 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,” she said. “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. So you can’t just say that today someone is looking at me strange and that I am trying to make myself look pleasant. You have to say that this person is looking at me strange, I am not comfortable with it, and I am going to talk to them and ask them why. Because that is the right you have.
Republican racists protested Omar outside the dinner. The terrorists screamed “Burn the Koran,” “Ilhan Omar go to hell,” and without irony, “Shame on you terrorists.”
The New York Post responded with a front page showing an image of the World Trade Center exploding into flames on Sept. 11. They were rightly condemned.
Trump has gone further. He has interspersed video of the twin towers exploding with a misrepresentation of Rep Omar’s comments. He is deliberately inciting acts of terror by radical republican terrorists.
