Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar can’t seem to stay out of trouble.
She continues to promote anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.
And newly uncovered tweets are about to destroy her for good.
Twitter is a powerful tool for politicians.
It is one of the biggest things that propelled Donald Trump into the presidency.
Instead of having his statements go through the filter of the mainstream media, they were able to go directly to the people in his words.
But while they helped elect Trump, it can also destroy political careers.
In the case of Rep. Ilhan Omar, the one-time rising star in the Democrat Party may never be able to win office again due to her tweets.
She claimed that pro-Israel politicians only support Israel due to money from Jewish interests.
Along with that, she posted tweets alleging that groups supporting Israel are pushing members of Congress to have “allegiance to a foreign country,” mirroring anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.
Her tweets were so extreme it gained her support from the former leader of the Ku Klux Klan.
And even after deleting her offending tweets, she is continuing to face scandals due to Twitter.
A top member of her staff, Jeremy Slevin, is now causing her headaches due to tweets that may even be more extreme than the ones from Omar.
Trying to dispel the claims of anti-Semitism from Omar, Slevin alleges that “anti-Semitism is a right-wing force.”
This is an attempt to dismiss any claims of anti-Semitism against Omar, because she is a left-wing politician.
Instead of admitting that what Omar said is wrong, he is trying to state that she can never say anything anti-Semitic as long as she is in the Democrat Party.
This isn’t the first time Democrats have used their status in the party to try to dismiss claims of bigotry.
Following revelations of Virginia’s Democrat Governor, Ralph Northam appearing in a photo featuring himself either in blackface or Ku Klux Klan robes, he has continued to refuse to stand down.
Instead, he has been trying to claim he isn’t racist, touting his left-wing views.
In reality, racism and bigotry can be found on either side of the political spectrum.
But the main difference between Republicans and Democrats is that Democrats embrace identity politics, while Republicans stand against it.
To Democrats, the color of someone’s skin or their ethnicity matters above all and is the first thing they point to above someone’s character.
That is the definition of racism.
In the eyes of Republicans, a person’s character matters more.
The Republican Party historically has been the party that stands against racism.
And the Democrats have for decades been the party of racism.
While the Democrats were founding the Ku Klux Klan, Republicans were pushing forward landmark civil rights legislation.
In the modern era, Democrats try to claim that Republicans are racist simply because it is better for them politically.
Do you think Democrats are the true party of racism?
