The Democrats have allowed the party to become THE party of domestic terror.
To name a few – Mosby, Waters, Lynch, Holder, Tlaib, Pelosi, and Harris. And the list of agitators keeps growing as they take queues from each other.
The Muslim’s agitate using Islam while the Blacks agitate the Blacks, and the Hispanics (all types) for the illegals. They keep trying to get the whites up in arms but thats been a waste of time.
The Democrats WANT to collapse America. WHY?
Ilhan Omar tells Muslims to ‘raise hell’ and ‘make people uncomfortable’ in defending their rights
Congresswoman’s speech to Council on American-Islamic Relations draws protesters
A smaller group of protesters came out in support of Ms. Omar, one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress in 2018.
“There are very fascinating people outside who for so many years have spoken about an Islam that is oppressive, an Islam that lessens and isolates its women, and today they gather outside to protest a Muslim woman who is in Congress,” Ms. Omar said in her speech. “The irony in that is very entertaining to me.”
She added that she and “many of the people in this room can care less about what they have to say because we know who we are and where we belong and what we stand for.”
Ms. Omar has been accused of anti-Semitism statements on several occasions, culminating in an uproar earlier this month over her criticism about those who pledge “allegiance to a foreign country,” in what was condemned as a dual-loyalties slur against Jews who support Israel.
The Democrat-controlled House responded by passing a resolution March 7 that condemned anti-Semitism—as well as anti-Muslim bias—but did not mention Ms. Omar by name.
In her Saturday speech, she alluded to the anti-Semitism controversy, saying, “My choice of a country to talk about is not my preference of a country. It is based on what country is violating basic human rights.”
That includes other nations, she said. “It doesn’t matter if that country is being run by my father, my brother, my sister, I will still criticize that country because I know every country is capable of living up to their best,” she said.
House Democrats have so far resisted calls for Ms. Omar to be removed from the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
“Many people expect our community to feel like it needs to hide every time something happens, but repeatedly we have shown them that we are not to be bullied, we are not to be threatened, we are not to be terrorized,” she said in her speech. “We are strong and resilient, and we will always show up to be ourselves, because we know we have a right to a dignified existence and a dignified life.”
