They always say we're racist



The New York magazine headline amused me, "Tucker Carlson’s Latest Attack on Ilhan Omar Is a Pack of Racist Lies."

Any criticism of a Woman of Color by anyone is now considered racism.

Democrat Congresswoman Omar is a refugee we took in from Somalia along with thousands of others. We fed her. We clothed her. We housed her. We gave her father a job driving a taxi. We educated her. We elected her to Congress.

And she showed all the gratitude of a frog. In that way, she is much like your typical Democrat.

When then-Senator Al Franken declared a bombing in Somali the worst terrorist attack in that country, journalist John Rossomando reminded him 19 US service members were killed and 73 injured in the Black Hawk Down incident.

Omar butted in and tweeted, "In his selective memory, he forgets to also mention the thousands of Somalis killed by the American forces that day! #NotTodaySatan."

It was hundreds.

American soldiers were sent to Mogadishu in 1992 to rescue little girls.

And that little girl was she.

Now she is like the princess who couldn't sleep because there was a pea under the 19 mattresses.

America is not perfect. Why people look at you funny if you are dressed in Muslim garb when no one else is. Imagine that.

She told supporters in April, "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."

[The Council on American-Islamic Relations was founded in 1994. In November 2014, the United Arab Emirates designated it a terrorist organization due to its ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.]

Republican Congressman Dan Crenshaw tweeted back, "First Member of Congress to ever describe terrorists who killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 as 'some people who did something.' Unbelievable."

She tweeted back, "This is dangerous incitement, given the death threats I face. I hope leaders of both parties will join me in condemning it. My love and commitment to our country and that of my colleagues should never be in question. We are ALL Americans!"

Are we?

Half the Democrats no longer stand for the national anthem.

Carlson wrote, "Virtually every public statement she makes accuses Americans of bigotry and racism. This is an immoral country, she says. She has undisguised contempt for the United States and for its people. That should worry you, and not just because Omar is now a sitting member of Congress.

"Ilhan Omar is living proof that the way we practice immigration has become dangerous to this country. A system designed to strengthen America is instead undermining it. Some of the very people we try hardest to help have come to hate us passionately."

On his show last night, "Our country rescued Ilhan Omar from the single poorest place on Earth. We didn’t do it for the money, we did it because we are kind people. How did she respond to the remarkable gift we gave her? She scolded us, called us names, showered us with contempt. It’s infuriating. More than that, it is also ominous."

New York magazine called his criticism racist.

But in his column, Carlson praised Somalis who respect America.

He wrote, "Ayaan Hirsi Ali would, by the standard of identity politics, seem to have everything in common with Ilhan Omar. She was born in Somalia, moved to Kenya and eventually came to this country. Unlike Omar, she loves and cares about the United States. She believes this country is superior to the country she came from.

"For saying that, the left despises her. Two Somali immigrants, one among the most impressive people in America. The other, among the least."

Democrats always call us racist. They even try to manufacture racism.

Remember the tea party march on Washington? Members of the Congressional Black Caucus trolled the crowd to get someone to say something racist. Surely among 10,000 white conservatives someone would say something. No one did. And so they made up a lie.

Andrew Breitbart called the liars out.

He wrote a month later, "When I offered a reward of $100,000 to be donated to the United Negro College Fund if anyone produced video and audio evidence that this occurred, I was accused of a publicity stunt (because everyone knows that the best way to get publicity in America is to accuse a civil rights icon of lying about racism). Rep. Carson himself suggested that my challenge was 'a veiled attempt to justify actions that are simply unjustifiable.' Get it? He calls protesters racist and if you ask him to prove it, you’re a racist, too.

"Needless to say, no one has claimed the $100,000.

"But, I have taken my search one step further. I’ve asked some of the contributors to Big Government to also actively search for video. We have spent the last three weeks searching for any evidence that might support the allegations, without any help from the accusers. The primary accuser, Congressman Carson, who audaciously claimed the crowd screamed the 'N-word fifteen times,' would not return our call. So we have gone part way to try and piece together the events of March 20.

"Not only is the audio devoid of any racial slur, but the scene at Cannon clearly shows the congressmen coming down the steps completely unobstructed, and with a clear path to the Capitol. And, when we juxtapose the audio accusation Rep. Carson made moments after the alleged event occurred with actual video footage of the moment Rep. Carson claims he first heard the racial slur, it is as plain as day that Congressman Carson was not isolated by a mob and facing a racist throng that could conceivably hurl rocks at him. As you can see for yourself."

Racist is just a word they throw at us. It has no meaning anymore.

Breitbart fought back.

Now it is Carlson's turn.

And he is.

Then there is this:



The white nationalist TV host is black. The show is on BET.
