You Don;t Ask Those Accused of Raping Someone if it was Rape

 

You ask the Person Who Was Raped!

 

When someone simply asks a Legitimate Question About - How Come American Tax Payers Give So Much Money To Israel & Israel Gives So Much Money To Democratic Candidates running for Re-election - Liberals Heads Explode With Irrational Claims of Anti-semitism

 

But When A Muslim Elected To Congress by the American People is Villified and Receives Thousands of Legitimate Death Threats Sponsored by Trump & Trump TV - Crickets

 

Rashida Tlaib Slams Democrats For Silence On Trump’s Islamophobic Attacks On Ilhan Omar

 

The Michigan congresswoman has a message for Democratic leaders: Don’t celebrate diversity while ignoring Islamophobia.

 

Here is the REAL Democratic Party Line  On Muslims - it's the same as it is on Blacks

 

Trot out the Token Blacks Around Election Time - Use the Muslims as a Prop for Democrats Inclusive Diversity

 

It's all a Lie - Honorable Individuals come to a persons defense when it's Difficult and Controversial

 

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) offered harsh criticism to some of her Democratic colleagues on Saturday over their silence on the recent attacks aimed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) who, like Tlaib, is Muslim.

 

“They put us in photos when they want to show our party is diverse,” Tlaib tweeted Saturday.

 

“However, when we ask to be at the table, or speak up about issues that impact who we are, what we fight for & why we ran in the first place, we are ignored.”

Actually .............. it's a darn shame that there is so much bigotry, hate and fear for Muslims in in our electorate that the Democrats are afraid to stand up for Representative Ilhan Omar for fear of political fallout.

 

This is yet another example of how misguided hate, fear and bigotry are an ill that rots away the fabric of our free nation.

Omar is a American Citizen - She Has The Same 1st Ammendment Rights As Every Other American - For Example she has the same rights as Trump - as far as her Comments about Jews -

 

Why is this Stuff excused - Trump Speaking to the  American Jews in Las Vegas & in the past in NYC

 

Trump quoted criticism of a black accountant: “Black guys counting my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day. … I think that the guy is lazy. And it’s probably not his fault, because laziness is a trait in blacks. It really is, I believe that. It’s not anything they can control.” 

 

Trump spoke to members of the Republican Jewish Coalition in Las Vegas Saturday and seemed to suggest that Jews and Israelis are one and the same. “I stood with your prime minister at the White House to recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights,” Trump said referring to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

 

In the same Speech - He then went on to warn that if Democrats were to be successful their “radical agenda could very well leave Israel out there all by yourselves.” 

 

OMAR WILL BE RE-ELECTED IN A LANDSLIDE

 

This Photo is why Trump and the Trump Zealots Do Not Like Ilhan Omar - She Looks Different - She Speaks Differently & Like Most of the Democratic Freshman with the Exception of that Pelosi Sycophant Max Rose from NYC - She is not a Tool & Puppet of the Democratic Machine & She Is Also A Very Intelligent Woman Although I Really Fear For Her Safety

As members of the GOP perpetuate anti-Muslim harassment toward the congresswoman, Democratic leadership has been eerily silent.

 

President Donald Trump used Twitter to target Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) on Friday for remarks she made during a speech on Muslim civil rights last month.

 

Trump tweeted an incendiary video that took clips from the speech out of context and interlaced them with news footage of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. The tweet text accompanying the video read, “WE WILL NEVER FORGET.”

 

The video came a day after the New York Post published an ethically questionable and widely criticized cover featuring a quote by Omar across an image of the twin towers as they burned.

 

This week’s attacks are the latest example of unchecked Islamophobia faced by Omar ― as well as the impossible standards Muslim-American politicians are held to and the little nuance granted to them. Ever since she was sworn in earlier this year, Omar, the first hijab-wearing black Muslim congresswoman, has endured an onslaught of bad-faith attacks from the GOP and its allies.  

 

In addition, her Democratic colleagues have mostly been tepid in their support

 

While the GOP and right-wing media continue to target Omar, America has watched the congresswoman navigate her new position with little support from her own party. Indeed, most Democratic congressional leaders have been eerily silent, helping normalize Islamophobia from the highest levels of government.

 

Just last month, politicians from both sides of the aisle accused Omar of anti-Semitism in response to comments she made about the pro-Israel lobby ― which many advocates have argued were misinterpreted in bad faith. Top Democrats, including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler and many others have all sharply criticized their colleague for her statements.

Or perhaps they are astute enough to not associate themselves with her disgusting words.

 

Some people have to be concerned about the perception of the voters while others only have to be worried about the garbage can tipping Os.

Mick, have to agree with you on this, or at least it leaves me scratching my head some. The Dem support is certainly lacking. And some of the responses have been freedom caucus worthy, too quick and lacking good info. And fox, trump and repubs are treating Omar and AOC as the new boogey people to continually hammer on. 

I do think that what Omar said was taken out of context, and also is counter acted by her co-sponsoring the aid package to be funded for those emergency personnel who were affected  by 911.

And remember trump saying that he watched thousands of Muslims celebrating the towers coming down and he personally knew hundreds who perished!...who’s kidding who?

He certainly lied and showed his real lack of compassion!
