Democrats including leading candidates for the 2020 presidential nomination have fiercely condemned Donald Trump and other Republicans’ growing efforts to smear the Minnesota congresswoman Ilhan Omar, and urged other party leaders to do the same.


Attacks labeling one of two Muslim women in Congress as unpatriotic are “dangerous” and risk “inciting violence”, prominent Democrats said on Friday.

Just last week, a Trump supporter in upstate New York was charged with threatening to kill Omar. Trump escalated attacks on Omar on Friday, tweeting “WE WILL NEVER FORGET!” with a video that was edited to suggest Omar was dismissive of the September 11 attacks.

The video pulls a snippet of a speech last month to the Council on American-Islamic Relations in which Omar discussed the problem of Islamophobia, describing “the discomfort of being a second-class citizen” as a Muslim in America. After the September 11 attacks, she said, advocates “recognized that some people did something, and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties”.

Other candidates also posted messages of support for Omar and disapproval of the president. Former San Antonio mayor and Hud secretary Julián Castro said he was “grateful for [Omar’s] courage and leadership and I stand with her - and with others targeted by the President’s anti-Muslim rhetoric”. The former congressman Beto O’Rourke said: “We are stronger than this president’s hatred and Islamophobia. Do not let him drive us apart or make us afraid.”...................

She will get hurt--or worse and Repugs will still be silent. Something has to give!! We can not have a sitting Pres. of the US inciting violence.




"The president is inciting violence against a congresswoman – and an entire group of Americans based on their religion. It’s disgusting. It’s shameful. And any elected leader who refuses to condemn it shares responsibility for it.”
Elizabeth Warren

A western New York man has been charged with threatening to kill US representative Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, one of the first Muslim women to serve in Congress.


Federal prosecutors announced on Friday that Patrick Carlineo Jr was arrested after placing a threatening call to Omar’s office in Washington DC last month.

The FBI said in a criminal complaint Carlineo called Omar a “terrorist” and threatened to shoot her. The bureau also said Carlineo sounded angry during the call but “spelled his name correctly and provided contact information” to a staffer.

Carlineo told the FBI he is a patriot, “loves the president and that he hates radical Muslims in our government”, the complaint says.

Authorities did not say when Carlineo was arrested. Carlineo’s attorney declined to comment.

Omar met with backlash for remarks she made earlier this year about Israel, including comments that American supporters of Israel are pushing people to have “allegiance to a foreign country”..........................................

Important to note that. Some have chosen to remain silent. I applaud the ones who have spoken out and defended Rep. Omar.

16. They should unanimously condemn Fat Donnie, and challenge his Repug enablers to do the same.

The GOP sat on their hands as Trump attacked a dead Senator and the deceased wife of a president. It's like they've decided to jump on Trump's Race to the Bottom.

14. This is just a guess, but I think that more of our people will be speaking out soon.

Well known and respected speakers. No, I do not know who. But more of our people will be speaking at some point to defend Ilhan Omar. This has just begun, and Mr. Trump will lose. Trump's 43 second video will in the end hurt him far more than anything else. He is just too stupid to know the consequences of his stupidity. Trump's time to apologize honestly is almost up. Today could be his last day to gain respect if he honestly apologizes. Maybe one more day, tomorrow, Sunday.
.. After that...as someone pointed out earlier, Mr. Trump will be burnt toast. Totally burnt through and through. Some (I don't know who) republicans with stature, will speak out to defend Ilhan Omar. It will take time. Trump's total self destruction has begun.

...Without an apology, (sincere and honest, and very soon) , Trump has speeded up his own complete downfall. He used the wrong video, at the wrong time, to go against a new upcoming democratic leader. He just hasn't got a clue, of how mean and vicious his actions were. Lastly, the downfall will destroy his family's name and therefore, the "TRUMP BRAND" .... will become totally worthless.
... Using a 9/11 tape to attack someone will go down in history as one of the stupidest actions by any sitting President of the United States.

17. Remember that 9/11 was caused by a rich boy president who didn't read security FBI warnings.
